I usually do when I get enough pokemon to start forming a basic strategy for my party. The only exceptions are Pikachu from Yellow, and whenever I pick the water starter. I usually turn the water starter into a HM slave. They do get to enjoy the sunlight for a little bit since I usually try to evolve most of my pokemon to their final form.

I did with my grass starter in Black 2. I swapped it out for Keldeo when the starters usefulness was outlived. I just now brought it back out, post-E4, to have it evolve to its final form.
Not changing this until Capcom either gets their act together or the company goes under (Dragon's Dogma was a good start.)

No. I always keep my starter with me. If I choose the one I don't like, I just start a new game.

I've done it almost every generation to find my favorite.

Once, in my current I boxed Serperior. For some reason I expected him to be better this time than the first time I chose him and restarted the game because he was crap.

Sometimes, particularly when I am doing a run with Pikachu as my lead (just something I do for fun on occasion since Pikachu is my favourite).
We shall rise again to start anew.

I boxed my Pikachu on a playthrough of Yellow once....... yeah.

Thing is, Pikachu was never my headliner in that game. For some reason I'd always catch and train a Pidgey. Pidgeot was my headliner then, way back.

Until the 5th gen starters I hadn't, but god are they bad. Samurott is ok, but the other 2 are outclassed even early on. Hell Simisage is as good as Serperior, not that grass is all that good anyway.

Only on SoulSilver because I hate gen 2 and on my newest Emerald ROM playthrough, because I'm hacking to get whatever I want whenever I want.
I don't care what you say, Generation II sucks.
That's just my opinion, no matter how true it may be.
