    Usually, I keep it on my team all throughout. There's a few occassions where I will actually ditch my starter, but it's rare.

    The funny thing is, I never realised how weird that is for me, since I don't like reusing Pokemon all that much, yet I'm willing to reuse a starter over and over again. It's probably because starters are pretty unique and special, and also tend to be really good team members, never noticed it before though.

    I always have my starter in my team until I have beaten league. After that, it depends. In pearl, my starter hardly reached level 40 while in heartgold I got him up to the high 80's. I did find that Unova starters fairly boring and replace-easy though.

    I always keep my starters through the whole game. I become to attached to them by the time I can get another pokemon, and just end up using it through the elite 4.

    I level it up like crazy and then beat the whole elite 4 + champion with only one pokemon. I probably should try to use other pokes aswell, but I really don't feel like spending my time on grinding other ones.

    I usually box it away and use its nature and IVs later for breeding if they're good. I use the games' main stories to level up and train competitive teams, so I always trade over six prepared eggs and hatch them and then EV train them.
    I don't actually use the starter Pokemon I receive, but I do use its DNA and its children.

    There have been some gems like Blaziken, Swampert, Empoleon etc., that I have found extremely useful. If they are going to work for me in competitive play later on, then I will use them all the way in my teams. If I know they are not going to be useful later on (like the Unova starters) I will replace them with an alternative.

    ALWAYS keep my starter but once Torchic was annoying me in Emerald so I tried to release it, It wouldn't go though and made me feel bad ;_;

    I'll train them to level 100 and then keep them at the front of my party.

    Of course, I train my whole team to level 100, so jury's out on whether that's significant or not.

    However, I will ALWAYS use my Starter on my team.

    I always keep my starters, I can't just box them. My very first Pokémon always sticks with me. ^^

    I always keep them, I never let them get stronger than the rest of the team nowadays though. I try to keep that stuff balanced. If I box them, it's never for long. attachment, lol.
    Ultimately, I serve only one master... pure logic.

    I always keep my starters, though I occasionally box them so I can train my other ones. It doesn't stay there for a long time of course. There's always going to be something special about the first one for me.
