My brother says that I am too obsessed with the starters and they are really weak. Is he right?
Yes, the starters are usually worth raising, they are amongst the strongest Pokemon you will find. Legendaries have better stats but only a few other Pokemon have better stats than starters.
However, you shouldn't make a whole team of just starters because you should have a variety of types.
Here are some questions that may help you:
What are the best/worst water type starters?
What is the best pokemon from each type of pokemon starter?
