Sure, it's interesting to see a Generation's starters as sort of representatives. Sure, I'll pick the one I like best when I start up a new game. But I'm so apathetic towards them. I couldn't care less about their final stages, because I always box them by the 3rd gym or so. Not ONCE has a starter made it to the end - or even middle - of my playthrough.
Black and White 2 were the first games where the starter was not on my final team. The only ones that were that bad. Sadly, as much as I dislike the Unova starters, Unova's Water-types in general were pretty bad, and so in Black and White 1, that alone kept the Oshawott line on the team.
