I was looking through my Pokemon games when I realised that all of my teams had my starter Pokemon in it. Have any of you lot got a team without your starter Pokemon in it?

Nope, no I don't. It doesn't seem right to have the Pokemon I had first not in the group

I always have my starter pokemon in the end. They usually are some of the more valuable pokemon you can get

Usually, my starters stay with me to the Elite Four. But at that point, when it comes time for competitive battles, I use my good EV trained Pokes.

Let's just say there's a reason they're called starter Pokemon, aside from collection. None of my competition teams has included a starter Pokemon.

Infernape is probably the best starter, I always use him in my teams

Infernape = Grass Knot

Yep Swampert was my complete Favorite until Infernape showed up in 4th Gen

My Sapphire team lacks my starter, but then again, I chose Treecko and found out quickly after evolving it all the way into Sceptile that I didn't like Sceptile. Other than that, not really, as I find a use for my starters one way or another.

NO. SWAMPERT ALL THE WAY T___T I never meant that Swampert could beat a Mixape...It's harder to take out with anything else though :[

I NEVER put my starter Pokemon in the PC. (unless trading them.)

The bond between a trainer and his first Pokemon is a special one.

Although, I traded my Blastoise in LG to Diamond, and I'm planning to do the same with my Treecko in Emerald.

Other than that, my team has never been without my starter. From R/B to D/P.

My starter usually stays with me until Elite 4 and then I usually finish it up at 100 just for fun. It rarely stays for competitive battling though.

Exactly, and what do special sweepers fear the most? BLISSEY. You will be doing a lot of switching..

My latest round of restarts, I have planned the teams, and at least one, since it is already underway, does not have the starter. That one is my Sapphire, and 4 of the Pokemon on the team were eggs that I brought over, 1 was traded over to the game, and 1 was caught after I brought the traded pokemon over. Of course, this has lead to me being stalled at the 3rd Gym until Larvitar is powerful enough.

The Sapphire Team:
Snorlax lv.5 (egg)
Dratini lv.5 (egg)
Wailmer lv.6 (egg)
Larvitar lv.19 (egg)
Kirlia lv.27 (wild)
Scyther lv.27 (trade)

I think I only cut out a starter pokemon from my team... once. Probably Chikorita or something because it isn't that great in-game. =/

He's not competitive because his stats suck. His highest offense is a mediocre 348 special attack. Not good enough. Not by enough.

The ONLY times I didn't use my Starter Pokemon were in Crystal and my original Leaf Green Save Game.

Crystal: I ditched my Typhlosion for my favorite Fire Type: MAGCARGO!!!
This was my Team:
Dunsparce
Crobat
Magcargo
Octillery
Omastar
Shiny Ariados

I like using my favs :D

Leaf Green:
I picked Charander, but only because I wanted Suicune. I ditched it in favor of (Once again) MAGCARGO!!!

Starter pokemon aren't weak especially the full evolution

Idiot!

When I restarted Gold with Totodile, I found Horsea to be much better, so I dropped Feraligatr for Seadra.
