Didn't in Platinum (I was kinda paranoid I wouldn't be able to beat Cynthia, so ditched Torterra mid-game).
Didn't in White 2 (in my defence, I'd already used all the Unova starters in Black, and Blaziken is technically a starter).
Don't plan to in Y (or whatever) because I prefer unconventional base stat distributions and animated object Pokémon (that this board will inevitably kvetch about) over animal-based Pokémon.

I always keep my starters. I didn't play gen 5 but i hate all those starters so I probably wouldn't have kept any of those

I didn't use my starter in Red either. But yeah, this pretty much. Didn't have a choice with Typhlosion (Houdoom couldn't be obtained yet). Blaziken, Swampert, and Sceptile were all good. Didn't like Infernape but I loved Torterra and Empoleon. Black and White's starters? Just...eww.
However history remembers me, it shall only remember a fraction of the truth.

I benched Tepig (might have been Pignite by then) for the in-game Victini that you could get for a while. Only gen I did not at least get the Starter through the Elite 4 Round 1.

Depends. I once did a Eevee game, so I ditched that grass turtle.

I planned to do it in Black 2 (Rotom team), but I just couldn't manage getting the Rotoms from D/P to B2. It was too much work.

I always have a starter as the 'leader' of the team, even in competitive teams.

Only ditch my starter in nuzlockes, that's when it dies, which it has happened only once so far.
