    The only game I didn't use my starter in was White 2, because I'd used all of the starters many times. Other than that, I always use mine.

    Yes. They have sentimental value to me in some weird way. Since I start my journey with them it feels wrong not taking them along with me.

    I always use mine unless I am doing some sort of special team run, like I am doing in White 2 with a randomly chosen team. It does feel kind of weird to me to leave a low-level starter in the PC for a whole game.

    No. Personally the 5th gen pokémon never caught my eye so I just trade it or leave it at my box since LvL 1 >.<

    Judging from how in my previous games, I've kept all my starters, so chances are very high I'm keeping my Samurott after I beat the Elite Four. I find it odd to stop using the one Pokémon you've had since the very beginning. And Samurott's actually been growing pretty well, better than I expected. I'm not very efficient when it comes to stats and natures/abilities, but Samurott can stand for itself in tough places, so I expect to keep it for the whole gameplay.

    I'm not into the whole competitive battling as other people are, so I always keep my starter at all times. Unless I'm just training other Pokemon at the time, but my starter is always my favorite.

    I used my oshawott and snivy up till postgame, serperior was immediately boxed, while Samurott was used for a while longer.
    I chose tepig in my white 2, was boxed when it was evolved and i got volcarona

    I try to, as long as they're somewhat useful. I've tried Samurott and Emboar this generation and both are decent, even towards the Elite Four. Haven't tried Serperior - don't really fancy its barren movepool and sub-par attacking stats.

    I used my Tepig for the main story but hes been in my box since the elite four, mostly because I transferred all my Pokemon from my 4th gen games into Black.

    I always fancied my starters, and always had at least one in my party, usually empoleon or serperior

    I always use my starter. I grow really attached to them over the course of the story

    I always have my starter on every team of mine

    In this case, Serperior (B) and Samurott (W)

    I really hated all of the starters in this Gen, at every single stage. I begrudgingly picked Tepig because I wasn't impressed with the other fire types in this Gen and they were far and few between.
    As soon as I could trade in previous Gen pokemon I did. I used him to get through the Elite 4 and then I dropped him.

    Yes. I though about not using it, but it just seems weird for me to see a team without any starter

    Starter has always been my main Pokemon. Tepig was my starter in White, and Oshawott was my starter in Black 2. I've always had a fancy for the Fire and Water starters.

    In all previous games I've always had my original starter in the team, but in White I put my Serperior in the box at around lv 38-40 and found other Pokemon to get me through the game.

    I always use my starter until the end of the game, at which point I'll switch for ANY starter. I always like to have a starter on a team, but to date, Mudkip --> Swampert is my favorite. And that is who normally ends up on my post-game team.

    Of course. My starter whoever it may be is and will always be part of my team, unless it's not really that good in the end but I did.

    I chose Tepig as my starter, and used it through the entire game (: I even use it on my one of my BW Competitive Teams as well! It's good thing it has an Adamant Nature and some good IVs! xD
