I think Professor Elm gave it the player in Emerald as a present for completing the Hoenn Pokedex.

But honestly we know where all unchosen starters go....*cries inside*

I think that since in RBY there is unused data for a battle against Prof. Oak with the pokemon not chosen by either Red or Blue, maybe Prof. Elm keeps it for himself as a companion. I read a really cute Pokemon story about Prof. Oak's relationship with a Bulbasaur and it just made me think, don't the professors get lonely without their own Pokemon companion? Hmmmm. We'll probably never know...

Edit: I also really like the theory of Emerald getting it for their pokedex. That way, it is still someone's companion (presumably.) But, who knows. I still think the professors will be lonely without their own companion.
Gotta collect 'em all! (seriously, I'm trying.)

I seem to remember in one of the games Elm mentioning the last starter being stored for safekeeping to prevent the issue with the rival/antagonist person (Official name plz?) from happening again. I still haven't actually started playing HeartGold, so I could check, if I weren't lazy, and preferred the color silver. Although it would be rather interesting if Nintendo had you play as one of the unknown characters that kind of grabbed the remaining starter and played through the game, but with all of the events completing just before you got to them, and then having other issues arise because of such. But that's another topic P

I've always wanted to know where it goes. I always thought it would kinda cool if after you defeat the E4 that as a prize you would get the the 3rd starter. Unless like in black/white when theyre 3 trainers in the beginning.

It just sits there on the table, FOREVER. Either that or it's in the Professor's PC box.

I always imagined that a newbie trainer came and picked it up and started his/her journey.

It'll probably just sit in its Pokeball on that table for eternity. Waiting, waiting for its future trainer that would never come to pick it up.

I played over 600 hours of HG and that starter is still there sitting on the table. Unless they put down the Pokemon since no one wanted it, and they just keep the Pokeball there just for us to think that they didn't do anything to the Pokemon... :'C

Every time you turn off the game, the remaining little ripper goes on it's own journey out to the world out of the lab... Until it decides the whether is far too harsh in the outside world compared to the ideal Pokeball environment. Every time, it ends up deciding that it will wait for the ONE TRAINER that will pick it as their starting Pokemon for the new hacked pokemon game... POKEMON BRONZE.

...But really, I believe Elm leaves it out for the pokemon to appeal to young starting trainers, and puts it away otherwise so it doesn't get stolen.
