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

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

I completely agree.

I used to but one day as a kid I realize why do I need to stick to this starter? Kinda of an eye opener. So chances are I box'ed them after playing though the game once. I Kept pikachu,totadile, probably blazeken. Didn't like the last 2 gens.

However, I recently finished a game of FireRed that I started much earlier.

I COMPLETELY revised my team, having such Pokemon as Jolteon, Kabutops, Nidoking, Rapidash, and (I forgot).

Originally it was Blastoise, Primeape, Kadabra, Vileplume, (I forgot the rest).

I ended up enjoying it a ton, and it made Jolteon my new favorite pokemon (sometimes it got 5 speed in a level up).

I rarely release or permanently box my starters for the reason that my first Pokémon in each game is essentially my companion; I have them always by my side. I even remember my first starter, Wildfire the Charizard - Until my Red version's cart battery died. Rest in peace, old friend.
I approve this message.

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

Dem feels...I know them.

I've begun to do research on the starters beforehand, so I can soft reset for the nature I want and get an idea of the moveset. (Did that for B2W2)

My starter doesn't get boxed until I really start getting into Wifi battles and post-game battle frontier/subway/PWT stuff

Nope. I could never do it, I always have my core team of six, and then all the others I catch for the Pokedex.

Yes, especially in Unova... I hate all of the starters in the region.
