Have you EVER abandoned/boxed your Starter even during your playthrough?

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

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.

Nope. It would feel like I'm abandoning my best friend.

I'll always keep my starter in the party. It feels weird without it.

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

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.
