Fifth Generation Are Pokémon slaves to humans? Team Plasma thinks so. Travel the Unova region and prove them wrong in Black & White, and then return two years later in Black 2 & White 2.

No...I never ditch my starter. They're,like, your first PKMN to the protagonist. So no, I don't ditch them.

    I've played through White Version with each of the starters, and my favorite is definitely Emboar. Samurott was kinda lackluster, and Serperior was just... awful, to put it nicely. I'm going to restart my White Version soon and play through with Emboar again, sometime before XY comes out.

      When I first played I wanted to ditch my oshowatt but It went a far way. I beat the league whit it but I couldn't beat my rival. His pokemon levels were higher than mine. So I restarted and chose snivy which I also beat the league with but I still wasn't satisfied. Now I'm using Tepig and yes coin great

        I'm not sure since I stopped playing after I got my 3rd badge. I started with Snivy in White 2 (choose Oshawott in Black), I mainly choose Snivy because I prefer Serperior more than Emboar. My first runthrough of the game I always don't think about the important stuff like IVs, EVs, natures, anything. I mainly focus on having fun because the game is easy as it is. I only do competitive battling after completing the main game. It makes the experience more enjoyable for me.

        I don't have a team in mind most of the time when I play, but I never like to ditch my starter. The only time I did was in P/D/Plat. I don't like the starters in that game very much...

        So, the long awaited answer to this question: Probably not.

        I actually ditched my starter for the first time on this game. Made things more interesting. Think I'll do it again for SoulSilver.

          In Black, I kept my starter in my team, even when I though it to be well weak.

          In White 2, I ditched my starter for a Sandile, RPing the Sandile as my starter. It was pretty nice, now it's level 100 along my Hall of Fame team

            Well, if I picked Snivy as my starter I'd always ditch it, as he has no redeeming qualities over the two other starters. Tepig's evolutions have the wonderful Fire/Fighting combo, and Oshawott is a great HM Slave (it's final evolution leams 5 different HM moves).

              I've never ditched a starter outside of chalenges and I find them pretty useful. Especially Serperior who I use in competitive play. My Serperior holds its own in battles and I even knocked out an entire team using it (I bet he was surprised!) so yah, I still use my starter, even post-game.

                Ditching my starter in my latest White 2 run, mainly because I've just grown to despise the Unova starters. I haven't properly LIKED a starter since Gen 3. So ditching Snivy, treating Riolu like my starter.

                I didn't in this play through (despite Serperior's cruel learnset) but on my next I definitely will be going for a more original "starter" that I'm yet to try.

                Sandile actually could be interesting... XD

                  I ditched my Oshawott on my second playthrough, but on my first one I didn't ditch it. I ditched it the second time around for Vaporeon.

                      I usually keep my starter even though they are not necessarily my preferred choice, but by the time they can be replaced reliably I feel that I have already put too much work in them to replace them.

                        I started with Tepig because I almost always choose the Fire starter, but I ditched it as soon as I found a Growlithe. Arcanine is both cooler and better than Emboar, imo.

                          I never ditch my starter. It isn't always my MVP, but he is often a very strong player in my team.

                            I didn't start playing BW2 yet, But depending on the pokémon I find, I may ditch my starter. I don't like Emboar nor Samurott, Serperior is cool but kind of lack offenses in my opinion.

                                well,I'm in the middle of playing Black 2 at the moment. I'm at the celestial tower and about to take on Skyla at the gym. all I can say is that my starter pokemon Chell (cookie for guessing the reference XD) is under leveled. my highest level pokemon is a Lucario. I am thinking of ditching my starter because we all know how hard it is to train an under leveled water type!

                                  I'm doing a challenge on W2 where I can only use Pokemon of certain forms [eg round/bi pedial with a tail]. So I've got to use my starter- which is an Oshawott.
                                  Most times I trade something over if I've replayed the game.

                                    Most times I trade something over if I've replayed the game.
                                    that sounds interesting! should make it more of a challenge.

                                      But yea, as mediocre as the starters are, I still kept my Samurott all the way to level 89. She destroys everything.

                                        I was considering replacing my Serperior with Mow Rotom.

                                          I never replace starters. The starters are powerful Pokemon as well and I don't want for them to be left out.
