When in the world will charmander, bulbasaur, and squirtle finally be catchable in the wild!? Lol. You'd think that after so many generations they'd finally be like "ok guys, lets just start putting them in the wild". Make them a little rare, but still.

that would be a nice surprise. Maybe they will do this to one of the games starters. But at the same time the starters are almost like legendaries.

My only guess is that most starters are either extinct in the wild, or are super ultra rare with tiny habitats that are incredibly hard to find/get too.

It'd explain why the professor's have them(Studying rare pokemon), and why it'd make such a great gift for someone without a pokemon yet.
I'd like to see what kinds of places they lived in, but I feel adding them in as wild pokemon would be too odd at this point.

Pal Park was a pretty nice clue as to where starters, fossils, eeveelutions, gifts, etc could potentially be living in the wild. As for being extinct in the wild, and super rare, then it would make sense. They come out male most of the time, so it's not surprising... However, the male only species like Tauros.... Now that's a mystery.

I know the anime doesnt equal the games but there was some episode where a guy ran a sort of nature preserve hidden in the forest for mudkips. He breeded them and sent them off to the professor when they were ready.

Perhaps they're only bred in reservations?

We only ever explore grass, maybe starters live deep in the woods XD
