    Anything after gen 4 is garbage, actually tbh only piplup is a good design, the monkey is just blaziken, and tortera is meh, but I do like it’s grass/ground like how swampert is water/ground

    A fire electric might have been a good idea for the monkey

    Also the treeko like should have been grass/dragon, cause the other two are dual type

      I agree but some are decent like Decidueye and...
      No, that's it, I guess I sorta like Greninja and Chesnaught a little? Incineroar could've been good but, ANOTHER fricking bipedal fire type? Boring.

    Gen 4 is when I started to find none of the starters appealing

      Gen 4 are some of the best imo, I have a hard time choosing between them.

      in response to op. imo after 2-3 playthroughs, you can ditch the starter. if I'm playing the game for the nth time, I want to use new pokemon.

    Feeling obligated to hold on to an arbitrarily selected mon design foisted upon you by a corporation is the peak of soulless.
    In the last 4 gens the starters have also been made progressively more and more broken, any of the gen 9 starters can solo their entire game with ease thanks to min-maxed stats and broken signature moves. Starters themselves have become soulless, as indicated by their rebranding as "first partner pokemon."

    I boxed my starter in gen V, all of the starters suck
    Gens 1-4 and 6 I didn’t box
    I haven’t played anything from gen 7 onward, franchise is dead as far as I’m concerned

    If the game allowed me to choose any starter then I would agree. Sometimes I don't want a Grass/Fire/Water type on my team.

    I also like to roleplay as a kid who got his first pokemon from a friend he found in his backyard so I like the most generic and neutral-type Pokemon imaginable like a Zigzagoon or a Furret.

    Not permanently, but I do bench my starter to get things up to speed. It's easy to get overleveled in basically every Pokemon game on the 3DS and Switch. I usually have like 8-12 pokemon all around the same level, including my starter.

    I only really play nuzlockes if I play at all, so it ends up boxed sooner or later
    I purposefully sacrifice them sometimes cause I'm tired of using the same mons
    some like gyarados I just refuse to use

    I would be hard pressed to do it, and would only be if I actually replayed the games enough for it to truly seem necessary to make them more interesting. Then again, it helps that I like a lot of the starter lines and don't really hate any so far.

      I saw that recently and it's ridiculous to me. "First partner" sounds way worse, and starter is just wildly accepted and used.

    Not my fault they have among the lamest designs in most dexs. There's usually six cooler pokemon I would rather use so I just box them.

    Only once in Gen 7.

    Alola had many good mons. The starters were not among those.it was the first time in the series history where I could not stomach any of the options despite liking the regional dex

      I always find this surprising to hear, since I found that to be the last starter trio where all three seemed like solid picks. At the least, it seems like there's a niche for most people between the three.

    When I play pokemon I usually just pick what I use based on their natures, I will exclusively use natures that boost atk or spatk preferring modest and adamant over every other nature, I will only use the starter if it happens to roll a nature I want.

    >gen 1
    Charizard line is clearly the coolest, but Blastoise is also good. I was disappointed by Venusaur as a kid, but I grew to appreciate it more as I got older.
    >gen 2
    I picked Cyndaquil as a kid, but was unhappy with my Typhlosion. I like Feraligatr's line more overall. I like Meganium's line in a "I guess it's not so bad" type of way.
    >gen 3
    Swampert is my favorite. I think Blaziken is dumb and Sceptile is mid.
    >gen 4
    I like Infernape's line a lot, and Empoleon is cool. I think Torterra's whole line is really lame.
    >gen 5
    Serperior's pretty decent. Emboar's line is hideous, and Samurott is a disappointing capper to an otherwise good line.
    >gen 6
    Overall excellent set. Greninja line is great. Delphox is kinda weird looking, but fine. Chesnaught is a good end to an otherwise crummy line.
    >gen 7
    Incineroar line is really good. Decidueye line is reddit, but cool concept. Primarina is a cool design, but odd for a starter (87.5% male).
    >gen 8
    They're literally all shit. I really hate them. Miserable.
    >gen 9
    Meowscarada looks good, but has the same problem as Primarina. Skeledirge line is unappealing, and the charm of the first two stages disappears when it fully evolves. The duck one is a homosexual.

    The worst I'd do is not evolve them. I never got to that point before I quit playing pokemon entirely, but if I had played gens 8 or 9 I would have had to because of how bad they've gotten.

    Never done that that I can recall. Also felt similarly with my first fliers, I never replaced them. That's why Pidgeot has always been one of my old favourites.
