Do you ever box your starter?

Nah, water starters are usually able to learn at least 4 of the HMs so I can dump it into doing that. Usually strength, surf, waterfall, and sometimes even cut.

When I feel like it. I constantly restart games after beating the Elite Four and saving my team in another game. I purposely restart the game to try out different teams.

Yup, W2. Boxed Emboar.
Only choose him to make sure Hugh got Samurott.

Not until after beating the Elite Four, after that unless it's Infernape or Blaziken they just aren't viable for competitive battling, and even then I likely wouldn't use them since they have a bunch of worthless EV's and a campaign moveset.

Yes. Frequently.

But never with the Hoenn starters or Sinnoh. They're too awesome.

Gen 1-4 no
Gen 5 I shoved them in the PC the second I got another pokemon. Emboar is ugly, I never use the water starters, and Snivy...well

I don't, even if its something I don't like such as meganium or samurott I end up using them and grow fond of them.


Screw that noise. Samurott's awesome. I always treat the starter as the leader, even on randomizers, even if I get a Sunkern. We're not so different, you and I.

I never boxed my starters until gen 5. Hopefully the gen 6 starters are better.
