If you were checking out the Pokémon Direct announcement, Pokémon X and Pokémon Y have been announced, and while details on a new region are scant, we have the new region's starter Pokémon!

They look pretty ugly to me, but going back to the original trio of starter types.

Oh my goodness, Pokémon X and Y. The starters, I'm just still amazed by the 3D visuals in the game. Hm... now I wonder what starter I should choose... it's a hard decision. xD

I actually thought those starters were really cute! They could have worked a bit more on the frog one. I almost always go with the water type and that was disappointing to me. Water starters were always cute, but Gen VI broke the cute streak!

I love the fox and the grass pokémon. I want them both!

Kinda didn't see half of the introduction of the new Pokemon because I was too busy freaking out, buuttt, the Fire starter looked so amazing! Even though a Fire fox isn't really that original considering we already have Vulpix, I have a feeling I'm gonna like this soo much better. Frog kinda looked a bit ugly but there's gotta be one for every generation :p Chespin was the only one I caught the name of but forgot what it looked like omggg so exited :(((( :)))))

The starter Pokemon were a little strange to be honest, but pretty cool. I especially liked the grass Pokemon, it was adorable and did have the appearance of a great battler. However, the only one I'd have to say I'm a tad bit disappointed with is the water-type which closely resembles a frog. It looks sort of, ugly if that's the right word :<, I just don't like its build, colouring or anything much about it which is sort of disappointing to me.

Other than that I'd have to say they've done a fantastic job with the new starters <3, creative and they look like a valuable team member for sure :3.

I have to say, I was excited the moment I saw a fox as a starting Pokémon. A Fire-type Fox!

Although you'd be right if you mentioned that we already have Vulpix.

I really like Fennekin and Froakie! The grass-type with the cute cactus hat-thing seems like it could have potential when it evolves. Fennekin is definitely my favorite, though! And I'm so glad, because now my Starter Cycle is complete, lol!! :,D

Hmmm...after seeing that...well, maybe a Water-type's not gonna be my pick, 'cause that Water-type looks pretty odd. The Fire-type is looking good...kinda like a mini-Ninetales or something...a nice starter.
I wonder what it'll look like in the real game...it would be awesome.
I'd pick the Fire-type...that one looks good, but let's see if its offensive power's just as good.

I love Chespin and Fennekin. But Froakie is...another frog. It looks like Fennekin might not be part Fighting. I'm hoping they all have unique starter typings!

Uh. Well.

Froakie is my least favorite right now but he's already growing on me. I'm definitely going with Fennekin asap though.

Fennekin is so cute.

I guess in the end I don't have much attachment to the other starter Pokémon. Oh well.

These starters look weird to be honest, but I do like Chespin's look. The Water-type was a big disappointment this time around, and I mainly pick Water which means I did feel a bit sad.

Finally, a Grass-type starter I want to do an actual playthrough with!

I have to say Chespin is my favorite! I don't ever, ever like Grass Starters! I've never picked a Grass Starter first.
