I do starters are ok but personally like a team without a starter there kinda overrated even more than legendaries gets annoying seeing people use it because u seen it enough times --- the puppy tried to moo but chose to eat steak instead
Ever since I learned the breeding mechanics (back in R/S/E probably), I haven't used a starter after the first playthrough. If it is the second release of a generation, the starter never makes it past my first opportunity to trade with another game. --- BSG
I've almost always kept my starter as part of the party, partly because I always choose the water starter. The only time I can remember that I didn't keep my starter was way back in my first Yellow playthrough. I think I boxed Pikachu either between facing Brock and Misty or after defeating Misty --- PSN: Carbs91 Evolution IS going in reverse
Never, although I've only fully played through the games with a starter I love (Charizard, Typhlosion, Serperior). I never played 3rd gen because I just really hate all 3 starters so much I couldn't bear to pick one.
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.
Same here. I never thought I would. I thought Snivy was cute, but it just never grew useful, even as Servine. Not replacing it with an Adamant Sewaddle would have been idiotic. --- Tie it on, in your mind. It's your Noctourniquet.
I always used them in Red, Yellow and Silver. Since Ruby I started to dislike the starting pokémon and only use them until I catch something more appealing.
The only pokémon I never abandoned was my Scizor. I hatched him from an egg in Platinum and have since then used him in Heartgold, White, and Black 2 and will try to get him into X as soon as possible (if it's possible). --- "The worst thing about quotes found on the internet is you never really know if they are true or not." - Abraham Lincoln.
