Re: Do you use your starter?
My starters always have been, on every single occasion (except one of my Colosseum saved games but that doesn't really count XD), and always will be part of my team. I never consider not using them. For some reason, once I get my starter, that's it, whatever I chose has to fit into my party. It's always been like that for me. I like to think of it as a bit of a challenge as well, to have to work it into your party. Not that it's difficult.
But yes, yes, yes, always.
Everyone who's still stuck here, Pe2k is Dead. It's sad, but it happened. Instead, we moved to...
Pe2k's spiritual successor! :D I'm Suicune's Fire there.
