In SoulSilver I boxed my Chikorita and used Giratina as my starter.

I boxed Servine...ugh, what a horrible starter. I can't believe people actually liked Snivy...for its design.

No other starter has been boxed by me.

I do this on runs where I breed myself an entire team for use.

At least not that I can remember.

I'm assuming this dosen't count temporary boxing to use an HM slave to get through an area? Then no. I always use my starter at least until after the E4 and even then I still tend to keep them around. (Especially since my first game of every gen I pick water and I like to have surf onhand.)

Never. Even in Gen 2 when all of the starters sucked/looked super ugly.
I have no signature.

Technically no. I just really like the starters very much most of the times and can always get one that I usually really like. Starters are just designed to be that, starters, and they damn fine jobs in doing that. I'm very excited for Froakie this time around and so I can have a surfer (though he probably is going to be more physical inclined isn't he -__-).

As for the technical part. I was playing through Fire red and I just couldn't beat the Elite 4 when I started with Charmander (I still didn't quite get the more specifics and was just having fun) so i ended up transferring everything to my brothers game and restarted and got them back, this time starting with Squirtle

Never have. My starter has always been my partner through thick and thin. I couldn't just box him cause I didn't like him.
