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

Pokemon Yellow - special Pikachu edition.

I got up to Fushica City and noticed that even though Pikachu was at least 5 levels above my next closest pokemon, he was still easily about 20 hp weaker and had noticably lower stats.

Pikachu was a burden to my team, so I dumped him. His inability to evolve in Raichu was his downfall.
If your zergling rush fails, consult your hatchery. You may need more zerglings.

Nope, I've always kept mine until the hall of fame. The most tempted I've ever been was with Snivy, but I kept him going.
I summoned a baby to attract a lion. It didn't seem to work, so I tried a delicious baby.

Yes. I've done it only a few times, though, because it feels like you're ripping your team's heart out.

when its my first time playing the game no, but in games like fire red where i have started over like 3 times i have, it makes it a liiitle more difficult since the games are already easy. I don't really feel bad about it, made a hypno my starter once and he was happy :)

I've never boxed a starter, although i can't say i'm fond of ANY of gen 4 or 5's... Made playing them less than great. I liked oshawott and dewott, but i really dislike samurott's design. Fortunately, these next 3 all look pretty good!

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

Nope, in my regular play through I use Pokemon I like and don't really care about stats, and Ive always liked the starter I picked so I kept it (Bulbasaur, Cyndaquil, Treecko, Chimchar, Snivy, strangely I've been alternating between grass and fire starters without trying, though that will end when I pick Chespin).

The first and only time I ever boxed my starter was in Black 2. I hate it, so I traded over a Vulpix and I have been using that. Tepig is still in the box....
