Mudkip turns into such a monster I can't help but care. I don't really care about the rest of them, though.

I almost always bring my starter to the end unless I bring in my own Pokemon from another game.

I care. I care about starter Pokemon.
I like English dubs.

I care about them if they're cool and actually useful.

In other words, I ditched my starters in gen 5, but have used the starters in every other gen. Hopefully the gen 6 starters are good.
why you be hatin', mosquito?

It's a bit extreme, but I tend to judge entire generations on the starters appearance: I don't play competitively, so I just use Pokemon I like. If the starters for a generation are bad, I'm notably less interested. I even judge Fakemon generations on that scale: If the starters are bad, the rest usually can't save it.

And once I've got a starter I like, I always keep it in my party, all the way up to the League, and unless I'm fighting a specific type trainer I can't tough it out with, or training a certain Pokemon, they're usually at the front of my party.

I definitely care for starters. Always on my team because without them, we are ultimately stuck in the first town

When it comes to post-game stuff, I view starters as any other Pokemon.

Main story though, I sorta feel obligated to use them. I've never boxed my starter before beating the E4.

True Pokemon fans always use their starters for the whole duration of their playthrough.

My younger brother is this way, but that's cause he has this authority complex where he doesn't use something that's been decided for him, and he thinks they're all unfair pokes.

I've explained the truth of that last point to him a billion times.
