I hate using HM slaves
Usually I dustribute HMs between the pokemon in my party. Before finishing the legue that is.

Fail poll is fail.

I use a Linoone as my HM slave simply because it learns a large range of moves and has the ability Pick Up so it provides me with free items all the time.

I currently have a Bibarel for Rock Climb, Rock Smash, Strength and Cut
Pelipper for Surf, Defog and Fly
Some random Poké for Waterfall

Infernape used DasherPunch on PokéCommunity.
It was super effective!

Who actually uses the starter as a HM slave?

I use a combo of Bibarel & Steelix to get me through most areas, although in the past I have used Linoone and even caught a wild Gyarados/Wailmer for slave purposes

This may sound strange, but my HM slave is one of my two Mews.

Bibarel is truly the best , the one that I use in second is Linoone which can learn up to 3 or 4 HMs from what I know ...
Well, okay. I'm here just to chat with people. Don't really care about signatures and stuff.

Bibarel. It practically learns everything~

I never use Defog and Staraptor has Fly as one of its moves.

RBY: Krabby. Gets Surf, Cut and Strength, while Fly and especially Flash are uneccessary.

GSC: Poliwag+Chikorita. The thing that sucks is that I always have to evolve one of them for Strength.

RSE: Mudkip+Tropius, Zigzagoon before I get Tropius.

DPPT: I have no real preference here, I don't play them that often. If my starter (of course if I don't plan to use it) is Turtwig or Chimchar, I need a random water pokemon, or alternatively Pelipper for most of the time and a random other one for the Waterfall stuff. If it's Piplup, I will need a Geodude or Machop instead. If I can't enslave my starter, I will get a Bibarel instead.

None. I used an Ar code for running through walls. Much more convenient than Hm slaves taking up a team slot.

I'm also slightly insane.

I don't use defog never! Because you don't need it! You only need defog in solaceon tower! So catch staravia only to use defog, and put it in your PC after using it!

Bibarel, definitely Bibarel, it can learn loads of HMs. I personally don't use an HM slave.
I belong with you.
But you simply can't see
the affection I hold
I couldn't give you gifts,
And I'm not exactly cool
But I'd stay eternally loyal,
I;d be what you need; a friend, a brother, a guardian, a lover
And I'd give you the greatest gift of all;
Not money, not chocolates, not flowers, not diamonds, not riches,
Greater than these, all of these by far.
I'll give you my love and friendship and joy
But I can't give you my heart.
It's already yours.

On Crystal I'm using Typholosion (strength)/Poliwhirl(surf/waterfall/whirlpool)/Noctowl(fly/flash) as my HM whoars <3 I also use another Pokemon for cut, but it's week.

On Sapphire though I was using Swampert primarily, as it used surf/strength, and I didn't really need to use the other HMs as much, if so, I'd just put a Pokemon in my party that does that - well, I'm using a Flygon for flying, but yeah. Other than that, I only battle with Swampert, so everything else is a HM whoar.

Strong Pokemon that can use HMs used to be rare for me when playing games. As I grow older I play with more strategy. XD
I'm paired with and in love with Frizy ♥

On my Sapphire, I use a Tropius (Cut, Fly, Flash and Rock Smash) and usually a Wailmer for Surf, Waterfall and Dive. I usually give Strength to another Pokemon, as it's a fairly half-decent move in battle.
In other games, however, I seem to distribute the HMs fairly evenly, except for one time when I had a Tentacool with Cut, Surf and Waterfall

It may be just me, but I think it is a bit cruel to use HM slaves because ater they are used they are usualy dumped in the PC forever. But if I have to have a HM slave mine would be either bidoof or bebariel.
apparently I know nothing.

In my HG i used Pidgeot Fly, Feraligatr for waterfall, sandshrew for Cut, Rock Climb, Headbutt, Cut and a Quagsire for Surf, Flash, Strength, Whirlpool. covered everything and best thing is Waterfall can be used for battling purposes.

P/Pt Bibarel is my salve with a Staraptor for fly and geodude for whatever else.

I usually have Bibarel for half and Pelipper for the other half. Excluding Rock Climb, which I have on my Magmar, who doubles as a Magma Armourer.

So yeah, Bibarel is the best.
