I'm getting the feeling 90% of people will be using Fennekin too then lmao. I just have to ask, Froakie? Seriously? It's not just me thinking that sounds ridiculous right? xD

I know Froakie seems a little too "okay, we know its a frog, can't you be a little more innovative than that?" But looking for more information...

They look pretty darn cute to me o.o
Not as original as I'd liked, but I mean by Generation 6, who can blame them, eh? I mean, I cannot wait to see their evolutionary lines O:
Just please make them big and bad like the Generation 1 starters. Regardless, pretty nice if you ask me D;

The frog looks pretty cool but I think that's only because one of the earlier sprites I made was a water frog starter Pokemon haha. :3

The fox looks pretty adorable too I must add. :3 I prefer these starters a lot more when compared to those of Black and White. I don't really care for the grass starter again sadly. :x It's just not really doing much for me.

At the moment, my favourite is probably the frog just for nostalgia. :3 Now to actually learn the names. xD

I'm loving this initial look of Chespin! Fennekin seems like a similar sort of Vulpix, maybe part Psychic based on the little fight vs Kirlia in the video. Froakie... a frog that croaks? Maybe it's like Garbodor/Vanilluxe in being designed by the Americans haha

So for the first time ever, I will be playing my initial run through with the grass type starter!

Chespin is looking like grass Oshawott to me, but I like Fennekin (Fennec fox based Pokemon, ftw) and Froakie (Frog + Croak?) is kinda quirky I guess.

Do you guys think the battle animations they showed with the video may be a hint at the final typings of the Pokémon? If so then I'm expecting Fennekin as Fire/Psychic and Froakie as Water/Fighting based on the moves those two used, but I have no idea what Chespin's second move was - it looked possibly Dark or Ghost? I think a Grass/Ghost Pokémon would be really interesting tbh, I'm hoping that's it!

I like these better than Gen 5's starters tbh. Fennekin is definitely the best one and Chespin is pretty cute too, though I'm not too happy with Froakie looks a little weird.

I can totally see the fox going Psychic. Though we thought Tepig was going to be a dark type and look where that ended up. I just realized another fox based pokemon that isn't an Eeveelution! I love foxes.
Though I also like the grass starter. Hmm since I went for Fire in Gen III, Water in IV, Grass in V, I'll go Fire in VI!

I want to say they're all VERY CUTE :3 I like the fire one the most I think! I think they're just really nice designs and ones that you aren't like "OH EW" to immediately (it was just the graphics that threw me off initially). But I think they're ones that you can easily get used to, as opposed to well, gen 5's mons initially.

My only issue with the cute fox is that it throws off the Zodiac based Fire types even more so than the Cyndaquil line. Well foxes are related to Wolves who are related to Dogs...if this is their version of a Dog I love it! (Year of the Dog here).

Fennekin looks amazing! These starters are brilliant! Way better than black and whites IMO.

Starters look like their Final Evolutions could be a double triangle.

Chespin uses Solar Beam, then...Night Slash?
Fennekin uses Flamethrower, then... Psybeam?
Froakie uses Water Gun, then... Close Combat?

Grass/Dark
Fire/Psychic
Water/Fighting

Discuss?

Since the region is based in france perhaps the frog starter will look stereotypically french with a mustache and everything...
I like the trio's typing if they do turn out to be Fire/Psychic (sorry Vic you aren't special anymore, there's a new cute Fire/psychic pokemon in town), Water/ Fighting, and Grass/Dark. Though I sort of feel for the grass starter as Grass/Dark is a pretty lame combo when it comes to weaknesses.

Definitely Fennekin, it's a beautiful Pokemon and it reminds me of Vulpix. I'm hoping there rumors about it being part Psychic are true too.

Uh. Well.

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

Fennekin is my favourite (I'm glad. Finally a Fire Starter that I love from first sight. Last time that happened was with Torchic. While watching the announcement I felt neutral towards Chespin and a bit "whut" to Froakie, but now I'm starting to warm up to all 3 of them. Depending on their evolutions, it might a tough starter choice. (Last time that happened was Hoenn as well. |D, last time it happened with all three is Jotho.)

I think that there may be some plausibility to this theory. Dark/Psychic/Fighting is more like a forward Triangle. Dark ----> Psychic ----> Fighting but you can't go backwards as you can Grass/Water/Fire to signal a half weakness because Psychic can't effect/attack Dark unless they change this of course.

Anyway, I would love if their final typings were like this makes Chespin even more awesome! Good spotting with the moves because I didn't even notice the second moves.

I LOVE Froakie! Well viewing from the comments, the fox seems the most popular. And the grass starter looks kinda cute. Buuut, tbh the fox doesnt really apeal to me that much.

I'm not gonna comment really much on their design, though I admit their become even more.....cutesy I guess?

I'll pick grass as always, hope to see decent type mix up with that one. My only worry is.....will Game Freak continue to give us Fire/Fighting type? What'll you guys do if this is true?
