    No. Granted, I haven't used him in all the gyms because, especially with Clay, fire pokemon are at a real disadvantage but I raised my little tepig to be strong while trying to protect him from too-strong opponents.

    I usually do, the only times I kept it were on 2 of my playthroughs of Diamond.

    In Platinum, I ditched Torterra. Tangrowth took over, he was at lv. 86 before the Elite 4!
    My YouTube Vids (Pokémon White 2, Randomized Emerald and soon Platinum)

    -Why don't use Pokémon who you like instead of powerful ones? You'll have fun in every battle and winning gives more satisfaction!

    Once, during my first run of Ruby. I was disappointed on how Sceptile looked compared to Grovyle, so I either traded him away, let him rot in the box or released him for whatever reason. (Now I love Sceptile's design. The lizard's got lightsaber blades. )

    After that run I've always kept my starter as part of my team. Feels wrong to part with it ingame. :s

    The only one I ditched at the very beginning was Pikachu in Yellow. I've also left Infernape in PC mid-game during my first Diamond playtrough. That one really didn't suit me.

    Unless you count my Nuzlocke run where Chimchar died, I never get rid of them. If I ever do another Sinnoh playthrough though, it's likely as they're not that great and I've used all 3.
    I reserve the right to randomly sign my messages.
    My 3rd Medalist Pokemon was Magikarp, and it earned that position alone with no other species.
    I have too many Bouncekarp.

    I guess every time. I just never liked the starters but Yellow? Always got rid of Pikachu ASAP.

    I just feel like it is more fun with different Pokemon instead of the starters and I do that in every game possible. I think it adds a challenge but that's what I think naturally.

    After discovering how rubbish Turtwig was in Diamond, I restarted after gym 2 and got chimchar instead. But I've always had my starter in my team for the main journey, and even after journey.

    In the Kanto part of HGSS however, I didn't use my Meganium, I did a mixed team, but it had my Venusaur from FR in tho.

    In BW2, I am considering getting rid of my starter only because I've already played through with Oshawott, Tepig is another Torchic/Chimchar clone, and Snivy is just awful.

    I rarely keep my starters, as I train my parties specifically for competitive use later on in the games, as well as for the story mode. I also sometimes have a use for starters of previous generations if they fit in my current teams, which I do use an Empoleon for my current White team for example.

    Yes many times. They are so terrible.

    I think the only time I actually 'ditched' my starter was waaaaaaaaaaaaaay back in Gen. II. I was playing through Gold again and had Totodile as my starter. I stuck with him until he eventually evolved into Feraligatr. I like Feraligatr, but for some reason, I decided to box this Feraligatr and use a different Pokemon (I think it was Ho-Oh?).

    Never thought of Sceptile like that before! I like it even more now!

    Nope! I've boxed for a while, yeah, but never completely ditched. I'm guessing it's because of my weird brain that insists that these little bundles of pixels are real animals. "Why would you do that? A small, weak Pokémon taken away from its mother and siblings at a young age and left to live in a laboratory? Once chosen, you ditch it to fend for iteself in the cruel unforgiving wild?"
    I form attachments too quickly -_- Anyways, even the less impressive ones can power through a trainer's team if you know what you're doing. They're great backup and I'm not going into any major battles without mine.

    No. And I also always never deleted the first move like tackle or scratch. I have recently been made aware by my cousin that I am "weird". Haha. But no. I have never ditched a starter.
