Nope, my Samurott is still in my team rotation as one of the only decent Water-types I've caught thus far (I forgot to trade my Keldeo over from Black early enough so it would've taken me ages to catch it up with the rest of my team).

I have already! I decided to focus more on PWT battling, and as such, my starter just hasn't really fit into my plans to battle in it, so yeah. :x

I probably will in my second run of the game, or when I buy Black 2. My team never feels structured unless I have a starter, but I like the idea of having 6, catchable Pokémon. x

I think snivy and its evolutions are pretty cool, and I usually kill almost everything in the game with my starter till I beat the game. In White1 My serperior was 94 when it soloed the elite 4 and I beat that part of the game. I dont have black or white 2 yet, do I have to start over with all new pokemon or is it a sequel with a transer information code?

I just felt like doing it in BW, because I wasn't used to the new starters and kinda didn't liked them, but I just can't get rid of Serperior, it's so awesome.
Along with Charizard, it is my favorite starter.

Really tempted to ditch my samurott and breed another...
I never really understood EV training and all that... But I recently got a baby lapras.... And a japanese ditto, I could actually try for a shiny oshawott... but it won't be the same because I never been through as much with a new oshawott than my current one...

I usually keep them in my team until I beat the game~
After that, I wipe my party clean and start breeding/EV training everything.

I've decided that I don't like most of the starters, anyway. ;w;

I played through black and white with snivy and tepig but in White 2, I got rid of Samurott. I was planning on keeping it but when I saw you can catch Spheal, I fell in love and threw Samurott straight into the pc. I only use it when my brother feels like battling me. I never really liked the unova starters, nor any of the other unova pokémon.

I'm not planning to ditch my starter, because they're suppose to be your character's signature Pokemon.

I always ditch my starter. I love Emboar, I tolerate Serperior, but Samurott I completely hate. D:
So usually I hack them into something else entirely. c:

I would never ditch my starter, until I've bred it (if it's male) with a Ditto so I can have a female starter.

Nope! Never used Emboar in B/W even though I'm actually pretty okay with it. So I said why not give it a chance? Even though I wanted Arcanine on my team so bad. Oh well.

When I finally caught Buizel, I was going to leave Samurott in the PC storage, but I got kind of attached to him (yep a male), so not anymore, I'm keeping both. In other games I usually never use the starter

LAWL. I stopped training Oshawott at level 10. I left it for Riolu which is now a bad A-- Lucario now.

I still use Oshawott occasionally though. He's now my HM Slave and Death Foddor. Might as well be good for something right?

At first I loved my starter pokemon, then I caught an Azurill and I trained the crap outta that thing. I eventually went back and trained my Oshawott. Right now I'm working on getting a shiny Zorua.... :D

I keep my Emboar in my party. Ive been using my event pkmn, arceus and zekrom, to wipe the white treehollow and elite four. With exp share on Emboar (Almost the entire game, been using Legendaries as soon as I can), he's up to level 80. I use him as my backup incase anything goes wrong with zekrom or arceus, or I need a pokemon thats a different type. So far, my strategy has been working quite well. That shiny dratini is so close!

I can't ever imagine getting rid of my starter. It stays on my team no matter what Pokemon it is. That's just how I am.

Honestly, I have a hard time pulling away from any starter I get, a least until I beat the E4. After that, it just stays in my party. It's not like I use it in competitive battle though.

I used to never do it but in these games, unless I start with Oshawott, I usually just stop using my starter before the eighth gym.

I have never ditched my starter Pokemon at the beginning of the game, call me boring

I do rid of it later on in the game though, usually after I defeat the Elite Four the first time. I did this in Black 2 when I completed the game. Haven't used Samurott properly since lol

When it comes to the main story line, I will never ditch my starter. All of my starters are always at their best whenever I play through the game, but when it comes to competitive battling with others I do ditch the starter Pokemon. My Samurott is pretty good for the Elite Four (in both White and Black 2) because I always gave it either X-Scissors or later swamp it for Megahorn for those pesky Psychic and Dark types.
