    I always use the starter. I often use them as my powerhouse until I beat the elite four then I trade another Pokemon over and they become my second most powerful

    You can actually do that-it just takes lots of time and effort.

    I use my starter most of the time, but sometimes I don't use it.

    Unless they die in a Nuzlocke, I always use my starter. Just saves time.

    I always use my starter Pokemon in my teams.

    I'm looking for an old piece of art I requested on here years ago and lost. It was a brown-haired girl with a pink wristband riding a Torterra. If you think you have this picture saved or have seen it somewhere please let me know and send it to me.

    Not always, mostly because I like the design of other wild Pokemon better, and thus train them more. And in the end they're waay stronger than my starter...

    Most of my first playthroughs of a game is just to have fun.

    I've always used my starter but since this was brought up I might do it to try something new.

    I always use my starter. Because all starters are better than most non-legendary pokemon in any game.

    I normally have a starter with me, but it may not be a starter from that game (or generation).

    For instance, I used 1st gen starters on my 2nd playthrough of White.

    Swampert is very good, serperior is decent,not bad not very very good, but in DM is a god. Charizard would be the one of the best starters if it had the typing that should be obviously his due to apperance (dragon type with fire type= beast)

    Only in Yellow for every playthrough ever. Sorry, but I have issues with Pikachu that refuses to evolve before the days of Light Ball, it kind of sucks ... a lot. Every other playthrough of any game will always have a starter. Wait, actually there was one other one, my Double Dragons Playthrough of Platinum featured Garchomp, Dragonite, Weavile, Magnezone, Floatzel, and Roserade, although Dratini and Gible were kind of like starters there
    Black and White 2 Return to Familiar Lands, except for the giant glacier.

    I really wish they'd change the type of hidden power on the party pokemon page because the normal type icon looks boring. My special sweepers all have stupid looking Attack tabs on their information.

    Have you ever played with blaziken or infernape or swampert if you did I doubt very much that your other pokemons are stronger let alone way stronger.

    I almost always do, but I decided not to a few times. I've gone through White, Platinum and Emerald without my starter

    I never used to, but in all recent games I have played through without my stater. They are too common, I like to be original :P

    Only if it faints while I'm playing a nuzlocke challenge.

    ...And if I'm playing Gale of Darkness, because I STRONGLY dislike the Pokemon I get as a starter in that game.


    I must say, I am 110% against this action, I mean, quoting Wikipedia, '' A world of free knowledge will be lost ''. I say screw SOPA and PIPA, and all who agrees with me, sig this! We all detest the bill and will fight for the freedom of the Internet!

    I've kept my starter in pretty much all my playthroughs up to this point. But once I get White 2, I think I'll be ditching the starter for once (just because there are so many Pokemon available; I'll still be using Snivy in Black 2). And obviously I won't use them during my non-Fire/Water/Grass monotypes.

    Only on Platinum sometimes due to a fear of it disappearing in the PC box again. o_o"

    I did on the second playthrough of Unova. I chose Snivy and quickly figured out that i did not like him, so i just used other pokemon.
    Before that it never even crossed my mind that i didnt have to use them xD
