It's pretty much common knowledge that the starters can only be obtained at the beginning of the game. The only other way is to trade them or migrate them to other games.

Gen I
Bulbasaur
Charmader
Squirtle

Gen II
Chikorita
Cyndaquil
Totodile

Gen III
Treeko
Torchic
Mudkip

Gen IV
Turtwig
Chimchar
Piplup

Gen V
Snivy
Tepig
Oshawott

The only way to receive starters is to either get them from the Professor, or Migrate them from GBA games via Pal Park. Hope this helps...

Trading is your best bet if you want to have other starters.

breed your starter with ditto,Hatch them and trade them for other starters on GTS should work.

The easiest way to get multiple starters is to have more than one game and trade them in
