I'm defining "final party" as "the one you use to defeat the Elite Four"

Mine's usually there on the first playthrough of a given gen but for the first time ever I've ditched my primary starter and picked up some other folks instead, and for the gens that I've ended up with more than one of the games from that gen I occasionally swap out my starter.

I think this Gen's starters are cool in design, but they're mostly not very good as pokemon. Esp with starter abilities.

Always.

Seeing as I've never went for competitive before, he's always been on my team too.
Used to only fill up my pokedex.

This series I wanna be a bit more active online though :P

It's only in the latest 2 gens that I considered removing my starter from my final party.

I kinda like the variety actually, but I understand it makes sense to include him from a purely story point of view.

Always, it always be in the final. C'mon you started your adventure with it, how can you forget it?

And I never do competitive battling on my 3/DS, Showdown only.

Never in 2nd or 5th gen minus my first time playing 2nd gen, having played both gens 4 times each (HG/SS counting as 2nd gen). Every other gen, I've used the starters in my final party.
