box that shit
naahhhh, i'm kidding, but there's some truth halfway through that. most of the time i plan out my party before i even start my playthrough; more often than not, my starter isn't really a part of that. so at about level 20-30, depending on the region, i'll dump my starter for something else. i don't inherently value my starter more than any other member of my team, even though it is sometimes the strongest member of my team. notwithstanding that, i'll still box it sometimes because i've played through the games a multitude of times with my starters and it's not really that fun for me anymore.
