Does anybody else never use a starter?

Since like 4th Gen, I've never liked using a starter, I'll always try and catch something else early, I always felt like the starter filled up the slot for something more fun!

Only when it dies in a nuzlocke, which happened only once so far.

I usually "main" 3 pokemon, and my starter isn't usually one of those three. However, I bring it with me and use it ocasionally and it'll evolve all the way and all that jazz.

I didn't use mine in BW2 as I gave Serperior up for my favourite, Roserade.

I've like starters from Gen 3/4, Gen 1 there weren't really any other good Pokemon and for Gen 2 I just used the first few Pokemon I caught.

For Gen 6 I will use the starter I'm going to choose because I think this Gen has some of the best starters. (My second favourite Gen for starters after 3)
Please check out my YouTube channel. I do game walkthroughs.

Only when I'm doing a challenge run, such as a Monotype challenge or one recently where I only used Pokemon that didn't evolve (strangely Dunsparce was the star of my team...).

I've always used my starter. And in most games, they are leveled to 100.

I only use them to evolve them into their final form. After that, they go straight into the storage box.
