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

I haven't, don't think I will either. Only for postgame, though.

Not really, I definitely used them the least in White+Black 2 though, due to the fact that Gen V starters suck.

I don't think I have but my memory is somewhat hazy. The only thing I remember is doing the Emerald cloning glitch wrong and my Sceptile went missing... While it is a little bit sad, it's my least favorite of the final Hoenn starters, so whatever.

I accidentally released my Pikachu from Yellow as a kid, I didn't understand English back in the day (read my signature), but I eventually restarted my game a few times. Apart from that, my starter has always been part of my main team. Since Generation IV however, I started the habit of replacing one of my Pokémon for a HM slave when needed, if my starter is the one having a disadvantage during these parts of the game, I would box it. It's always part of my main team and I always keep it for the Elite Four.

He goes in if I have too many and need to box one temporarily but never permanently. It's your start, gotta stick with em.

I do it all the time.

I don't like exclusive Pokemon. I feel more in touch with Pokemon when I'm using Pokemon that anyone can get.

Yes. The starters in Johto weren't that great. Same with Unova. Loved the Kanto, Hoenn, and Sinnoh starters.

Although SoulSilver made Feraligatr fun thanks to the physical/special split.

I think I'm justified. Put it this way, I was young and naive. Also easily frustrated. I got my @$$ handed to me when I used Chikorita/Bayleaf in the first half of the game. The 1-4 gym matchups were not favorable. My team literally improved when I boxed Bayleaf. I trained my Heracross and Espeon real hard. Like I said, they both worked cohesively to form a deadly core to my team. Gyarados and Ho-oh were icing on the cake. Ampharos and Gengar weren't extremely necassary, i just got them for type variety.

Meganium is awesome gen 2. Also makes 3rd gym easier than it already was. Meganium can tank just about anything ingame.
