Maybe the reason that the professors give their dying pokemon to ten year olds is because they know that they will train and evolve them in a quest to become a champion, thereby making them stronger and more attractive to females.

The music you used is also Illmangos intro. That’s cool. He’s cool and your cool too.
Sadly this Isn’t me
I think all the starters are equally amazing
The Vault The Official Channel
Theory: Starters are so rare, due to their 7 males to 1 female ratio, as an counterbalance. Starters are stronger than most other Pokémon. For example, fully-evolved Pokémon have a mean BST of about 480, and fully-evolved Starters have a mean BST of 530, or 50 more than the average. This is what keeps these species from taking over environments.

did it even occur to you that maybe the starters were imported pokemons from another region and that's why your pokedex has the unknown region status on the starters as it can only have detailed info on pokemons in its designated region.

In fire red, after fuschia city you find swimmers with squirtle. And this is is the case with other games where you sometimes see a starter.
