Does anyone ever actually stop using their starter?


i never do just because it has more experience points than the rest of my pokemon, so usually its a fighting machine that can get defeat a pokemon with like... one move.

I stop using them sometimes. In gold/silver/crystal I always made my Eevee lay some eggs and make a party of Umbreons and Espeons (Umbreon's my fave pokemon) and stopped using my starter one.

But then again, the starter is very good, it grows fast and is strong. Its easiness to train is one of the things why I usually use them til the end.

The starters in red/blue were really cool so there was a 0% chance that i would drop them. I'm thinking of dropping the one i use in Pearl soon though.

When I made egg teams I dropped it.. Egg teams are awesome... You get a starter, use it just barely enough to be able to trade, then trade yourself 6 egg moved well bred pokemon.. Then you ditch your starter at like level 10 or something.. I am obsessive.. yes.

I'm at the same point as Candlejack.
I'm just too damn lazy to get the badge yet, hehe. Too busy training elsewhere.

If you have six badges and have gone to the other two lakes, then you should be able to get to Snowpoint City, which is to the right of Lake Acuity. I think you can also take a boat there. Have you looked around? Did you come in fron Mt. Coronet and took the long way through the snow-covered route? The only way you'll be able to get into Lake Acuity is by getting the seventh badge from Snowpoint City.

I thought initially that I could skip getting the badge and get Dialga, but the gym wasn't too hard (albeit it wasn't just ice pokemon like it SHOULD have been).

Got my eighth badge today, it's time to train for the Elite Four. *refuses to fight them till her team is rounded to somewhere between levels 55 - 60*

60+ would be better. Trust me.

Also, doesn't it make it more challenging if the gym's Pokemon aren't the exact type? That would just make things too easy.

I am in love with my new baby pre-evolved version of Lucario.
Don't remember what it's called.
Riley is love~~~~

Also, Stunky and Bibarel are LOL.

HAHAHAAHA!! My friend gave up on the Pokemon game and lent it to me along with his DS. He plans to sell to me and I most likely will buy it from him. So far I've defeated all the gym leaders and now on the Elite four. I'll admit many of their pokemon are a scaryingly high levels but some of my pokemon that are still in there fourties still beat the elite four, my main concern now is to defeat Chynthia, the Champion. Many of her pokemon are powerful and I guess I should use the Legendary pokemon on my team. I thought I would be the game with basic pokemon but I still have to get them stronger.

Mm... Elite Four... The levels don't really matter if you type-match them (okay they matter a little. ^^;)

I am the proud owner of Poof the Bidoof. XD
Seriously, when I caught him the first day I got my game, I decided I'd never let him evolve so he'll rhyme forever. (:

Awesome game but kind of shallow once Elite 4 has been beaten...
Well i guess catching all 400+ does count for something but c'mon who has the time/patience to do all that?

70+ hours at the moment *hangs head in shame*

I need Manaphy so i can go to Pal Park. And the only way is transfearing with Ranger. (I got the Manaphy-egg,but only one NDS!) ....its frustrating. Isnt there anywhere you can see Manaphy in Pearl? You dont actully need the info,it will work if ya only have seen it.

And thanks to Online trading and the gamefaqs board, I only need a manaphy and I have all the damn critters! (most of them are still on the GBA games though, but still...)

Do you always refer to yourself in the third person - pretty cool if you did.

Anyone playing this currently? ^^'

I started new game couple of days ago and now I'm trying to use only my favourite ones and kick some ass with them. I still need Gible, Riolu, Umbreon and Espeon to get a good team.
