First playthrough of Pokemon Gold (Original), I picked Chikorita (I wanted Totodile but my bro picked it first and at that young age, I wanted to have the 'type' advantage).
Long story short, I hated Chikorita so much (Especially after Falkner) that by the time I was at Ecruteak, I straight up boxed (then Bayleaf) after I caught Heracross and my Eevee evolved into an Espeon (those two ended up becoming my core Pokemon as well as my two favorites). I also had Mareep and Gastly from after the first badge so I was fine for the rest of my playthrough.
Final Team for E4: Espeon, Heracross, Gengar (thanks bro) Red Gyarados, Ampharos and Ho-oh. --- Team Axis for Pokemon X and Y. Calling it now :p 01/08/2013

No. I always keep my starter with me. If I choose the one I don't like, I just start a new game. --- It's-a me!

Boxed Totodile after he evolved into Croconaw in Crystal. Boxed Tepig when he evolved into Emboar in White. --- In every loss, in every lie, in every truth that you'd deny And each regret and each goodbye was a mistake too great to hide.

I'll always keep my starter in the party. It feels weird without it. --- Currently playing: Tales of Graces F, League of Legends, Dota 2, Sleeping Dogs. Waiting for: Ni no Kuni, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate

First time I boxed my starter was BW2. I replaced it with a level 1 bulbasaur.
I had already trained a snivy in BW1. --- Wow really Official Swinub of Pokemon X and Y boards

I tend to always, though not often before I defeat the elite four. I just have so many favorites that I gotta make a couple sacrifices. --- "The point of war is not to die for your country. It's to make the enemy die for his."
