Nope. I always keep my starters. Except for Pikachu in Yellow. Hated that rat.

      There's nothing special about the starter- it just happens to be the first mon you get. Sometimes I use it, sometimes I don't. I tend to box it pretty often actually since after a few replays they kind of lower team variety. In particular I've never done a Plat run with the starter (I've used them all in Pearl).

      Only if I'm doing something like a solo run, for normal in-game runs I just couldn't ditch my starter.

        But some people like to part ways with their starter when they get a better Pokemon.

        So, have you ever ditched your starter when playing a Pokemon game?
        No. I like to use my starter as my partner through the ENTIRE game. Once I beat the elite four, and want to make a badass team, I may ditch him, but always keep him. I never trade him. It basically like I'm giving him a rest, but I keep him on call incase I need some extra power

          I have NEVER ditched my starter, and that's one thing holding me back about a Nuzlocke. I don't wanna lose my best partner. To me, that's what a starter SHOULD be - a Pokemon that sticks by your side for eternity, someone you bond with. I know it's weird since it's all pixels, but I like having my journey come full circle with the Pokemon I started with.

            Of course. Either to start with a different starter through codes for emulation or trading eggs to hatch in the new game. Makes it more interesting to try out things other than a starter you're handed. That said, I tend to try out all 3 of the others before alt starter.

              Only time I ditched my starter was in Pokemon Crystal because my Chikorita kept fainted too easily in battle.
