Default Do you use your starter?

Do you actually use your starter when battling?

I really never use my starter. He's just kinda my backup. My main pokemon is my Arcanine [which destroys almost everyone].

I try to use my starter and for some reason Oshawott does a whole lot better in Pokemon Black 2 than it did in Pokemon White for me. ^^;

I don't really like the Unova starters, and have usually replaced them by around the 4th gym.

I do use my starter a lot, especially during the main game. I try to keep my Pokemon levels pretty even so they all get used the same amount. I don't usually evolve my starter though so by the time I get to the post-game, it gets used less than my other Pokemon who tend to be stronger (depending on the starter of course. Was definitely true for poor Snivy in BW, who has a pretty bad movepool).

Starters are always the first, so I get a kinda loose connection with them, and feel a little guilty watching them gather dust in the PC. So yes, I use them.

In the past I have, but this gen I feel there are so many better options for their teamslot out there, particularly in B2W2. I feel like gen 4 really offered three interesting and unique starters that were all very usable in-game. But then we come to this gen and the Fire/Fighting combination has now been done to death (and Emboar certainly isn't the best of them either), a defensively-based grass type with a very poor movepool isn't winning any awards in my book (although it does look great), and the Samurai otter is.. well.. ok, I do kind of like him, but there are so many water types out there it's difficult to find something for it to do that something else can't do much better.

Wow. Looks like it's pretty even who does and doesn't use starters. To be honest, I expected more people to use their starters.

Default 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.

I like my starter, and they have probably always been my most commonly used Pokemon, but I do like to deviate away from my starter now and again.
I do use my starter very often!

It depended on the game. The ones set in Kanto and Johto I definitely used my starter. Hoenn I didn't after he fully evolved, a Mightyena becoming my main. He was a beast, I tell you! Lv 84 Mightyena is unstoppable! Anyway, same thing happened in Sinnoh that happened in Hoenn, except it was a Luxray that became my main instead of a Mightyena. In Unova I use my starter. I try to use them, but sometimes I just loose my connection with them.

Not A LOT of times, but I use it. Generally I grow anohter Pokemon that becomes even better than my own starter.

I've switched out my starter in both White and White 2 with Riolu.
When I started Black though, I used my Snivy

I only use it when it would be best against whatever Pokemon I'm battling. I try to keep my starter a few levels above the rest of my party so when it's about the same/lower-leveled, I'd use it a bit more to work around that!

I use my starter for the first few gyms, and then it becomes an HM slave.
