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.

    What?! Serperior is one of the most awesome looking pokemon in Gen5!!! I've used it and it was the reason I got the game tbh, I really loved it's design... It's a beast, at least mine, it's very fast and a perfect dual screener.
    The others are trash though.

      Yes, as a matter fact,I did ditch my Samurott after I transfered my Empoleon from BW. Empoleon is my favorite Pokemon, so it wasn't a very hard choice.
      I'm a silhouette, asking every now and then
      Is it over yet? Will I ever feel again?
      I'm a silhouette, chasing rainbows on my own
      But the more I try to move on, the more I feel alone
      So I watch the summer stars to lead me home.

        I actually haven't ever gotten rid of a Starter except in White I got rid of Emboar. But in B+W2 I've got Samurott instead who I've kept. I don't know why but I like it. I think its weirdly cute.

          I might be ditching my Samurott for my Empoleon from D/P. Its move set isn't very good (because I wasn't the best at Pokemon at the time), but if worse comes to worse I can breed it and just re-raise it from scratch. Because Samurott is just too generic of a water type Pokemon for me.

            I ditched my Samurott once I got to Undella Town. It was weak and I didn't like it, even if he was my strongest one in B1. I replaced him with Starmie.

              I'm finishing the game with my Emboar, but I'm ditching her as soon as I beat the Elite 4 to start building my Bug/Dragon team. I always tend to use my starter, just not as much post-game.

                Has anyone kept their starter unevolved?
                I am not a Tepig fan or his evolved forms. Same with Oshawott. But Snivey appeals to me, but his evolved forms doesn't. Has anyone just kept Snivey unevolved?

                  I don't ditch my starter in my permanent save files, because it feels wrong. Why? Well, because it seems odd that the player character would box his/her first Pokemon that he/she received as a gift. Basically, it feels out of context with the story, despite no one mentioning your starter or your starter not really impacting the story beyond the professor's comments. If I ever do subsequent playthroughs by restarting my save files, it stops mattering to me since I end up wanting a little more variety.

                    I have never ditch my first pokemon in any of my games, it stays with me all the way. The only time i put my starter in the poke box is/was during trades or hacthing a full team of 5 eggs.

                        Yes, I've used all the three starters and I want something new.

                        Yes, because I hate the starters, they're pretty bad in my opinion.

                        I actually might box my starter whenever I start my second playthrough of B/W2 since I feel like I've overused Oshawott's line, dislike Emboar design-wise, and have also overused Snivy's family. Might just make room for another type to replace my starter and see what that's like, since it's been a while since I actually ditched mine. XD;

                          White2 was the first time I ever ditched my starter in the main story. I noticed that from about Clay onwards, I wasn't using my Emboar much, and he was about 6-7 levels lower than the rest of my team, so I boxed him for a while. I did bring him back for the plasma frigate near the end, though that was because I was in a grinding mood, and brought him up to level. but Fire/Fighting is fun at the start, but gets very boring, very fast. I even traded an oshawott egg in and evolved it completely.

                          though on another note, I do find the story in BW2 lacking compared to its predecessor, which is a shame, since BW's story was what interested me enough to but the sequel.

                          Its either real or its a dream, there's nothing that is inbetween, Twiiiiiliiiiiight

                            I almost never ditch my starter, the only time i actually ditched my starter was for a random pokemon challange. i just feel really bad because its my starter. Normally if i stop using my starter its after I have beat the e4.

                            I kept Emboar during the game buuut it's not my most used. While it was in my main team, at this point Swoobat is level 81 iirc, and Emboar is only 60-something, so chances are Swoobat will win out here lmao.

                              I never ditch my starter, except one time I did to try to play without one.

                              I feel weird not having my starter on my team in playthroughs, so usually my team revolves around my starter, and most of the time, it's the strongest member of my team in level.

                                I don't like ditching my starter, I don't even know why but it's weird for me to play without them. :3 I'll probably do it once I restart some game.

                                  I ditched my Tepig as soon as I spent an hour finding a Riolu. Turned out very well though!

                                    i ditched my starter strait away since ive abused all 3 in the BW1 games, i just picked oshawatt for pokedex sake since i knew my friend picked tepig so i could use him for that in the pokedex, so since i chose oshawatt my rival took snivy and i didnt have to worry about the starters now. i kept the oshawatt in storage since ill probably level it and use it in WIFI at some point

                                    Another thing about starters for me in that nowadays they tend to become my ace no matter how hard I try they just become the strongest so I ditch mine frequently

                                      I haven't ditched mine completely yet. It's fourth or fifth in lvl on my team. Neutral nature Serperior with bad IV hasn't ended well. The Litwick final evolution and my Pokemon catcher are my highest lvls.

                                      I'm new to the newer generations being a Red/Silver player before Black 2. But starters just don't even compare to the usefulness they did in Gen1. I will breed some Snivy later but this one is garbage.

                                        In all my years playing pokemon, this was the first time I actually boxed my starter.

                                        I kind of avoided pokemon websites and forums to stay spoiler free. I picked snivy as my starter and had no idea that past gen pokemon were able to be caught so early in the game. As soon as I picked up a roselia, I made my tough decision to box my servine. Roserade is one of my favorite pokemon so i had to replace my grass member of my team with her.

                                            I switched my Samurott with Starmie after the eighth gym. I would have done it earlier, but I felt like I was doing something wrong :/

                                              I usually keep my starters in games no matter what, but I start to use them less when I beat the Pokemon League. But no matter what, my starter never sits in the PC box.
