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

Yes, in a recent HG run I ditched Totodile because I was sick and tired of the Johto starters at the time.

By the end, I put it back in and used it. Just feels wrong not to.

No. Closest I ever got was with Samurott in Black 2, but that passed.

In the first run of a game, the only time I did it was W2, because I liked Azumarill better than Dewott. In subsequent runs, I'm usually used to and bored with the starters, so I'll trade in an egg and replace my starter with that. Last time I played HG, I started with Smeargle. Last time I played Platinum, I started with Mudkip.

Haven't yet.

(played HG and Black)

I was considering getting B2/W2 and boxing the starter, but I never got the game.

And I'm DEFINITELY not going to this time.

Yeah. I did a play through in Pokemon Yellow with only Nidoking, Sandslash, and Pidgeot (don't know why I chose those three to be honest). Otherwise I've used my starter in every other play through.

no, I always keep my starter until I finish the E4, after that I'm fine leaving him in the box, but before it just seems weird
#118ssbmrocksPosted 1/11/2013 4:45:09 PM
I always use my starter on my first playthrough. On other playthroughs (like if I buy the other version of the game) I'll sometimes ditch my starter.

All the time. Especially in more recent gens.

Nope. Always use my starter as a main party member.
