What is the reason that starters are unable to be found in the wild?

Really. What bad could possibly come from being able to catch them? There are many Pokémon that are better than most starters and their evos, so it's not like it would lead to an OP team. On that note, where do the professors get them from?

The starters are genetically bred in labs.

My guess is that the starters are imported from another region.

So make Bulbasaur available in Unova and Froakie available in Hoenn.
Problem solved :D

Because they're supposed to be somewhat special

Maybe they're all available in Kalos.
Or perhaps next gen's region.

But that makes no sense in the context of the game world, now does it?

It would make them a lot less special and unique

I still wish there was some way to obtain them without trading or cheating though
