My favorite type is Electric...so yeah I tend to love the Electric types I focus on. Most of the time it's Jolteon, but I've grown attached to an Electabuzz before. Sadly Jolteon/Eevee can't really be obtained until postgame in gens V and IV, so I usually just keep my starter until post game and then box it in preference for Jolty. <3
I don't really tend to like the starters anyway (exception being Typhlosion and its awesomeness...and Blaziken :D), so I don't really feel bad boxing them. The other 600+ Pokemon in my box keep them company ;p
Official Jolteon of the Pokemon X boards. Playing - PS All Stars, PS+ Goodies, Chrono Trigger (forever)
Twice. When i got pokemon gold/silver(whichever one i got second as a kid) i encounted and caught a shiny sentret on the first route. i caught it, and used it as my main pokemon for most of the game. although i think i eventually abandoned him out of terribleness. stupid pink furrett.
the second time, was with pokemon ruby. I used jirachi off of the Colosseum bonus disc as my starter, and that was 100% win.
Never have boxed mine, though I did force my Pikichu to evolve in Yellow twice. But generally I'm not disapointed in my starter, outside of Tripig. Man his evolution was mostly worthless and vowed never to train one again.
