Best answer

Other Trainers use starter Pokemon actually.
For example, the Eterna City Gym Leader Gardenia used a Turtwig.

Otherwise, this is likely because the Pokemon are considered 'rare' and were desinged to be less frequent. Since they don't appear in the wild, it wouldn't be logical for them to be owned by everyone.

Alot of trainers in HG SS use Kanto starters too.
