Actually Fennekin is just Vulpix, the grandeur is gone. Ninetales should have been Fire/Psychic anyway if that's what this ends up being. It's still cool though!

What are you talking about? Fennekin is definitely a fire type Zorua :P

I'll definitely be picking Fennekin as my starter.




Is it just me or does Chespin look like a few pokemon merged together?

I really love all the starters it's a hard decision for me u_u;;

But so far I'm definitely leaning on Fennekin!! It's so cute and I've always wanted a Fire-type like that cx Chespin is my second option so far cause I'm not too crazy about the frog... but I want to see their final evos and stats before I decide.

I guess, the only one I want is Fennekin, but that is without seeing the other versions, so I am subject to change.

I think Chespin looks like Oshawott. But Fennekin is one cute fox. And Froakie is the first frog starter! So I picked them all!

Poor Froakie, such an ugly little Pokemon. And Fennekin's evolved form better not end up being a Ninetales rip-off.

Chespin gets my vote. Looks like I'll be going with the Grass-type starter for the first time since forever.

At least it seems as the trend of Fire/Fighting combo for the starters is finally over... But who knows what they'll do. I did not think it of Tepig either but then I (we?) got disappointed :D

I just keep my fingers crossed for a pure Fire-Type Evolution this time...
Other than that: I also like Chespin but the frog looks just way too creepy^^

Am I the only one who thinks Froakie is cute?
I am not a fan of Fire types but I think Fennekin looks cool. Fire Zorua xD
And yes. Chespin looks like a friggin Grass Oshawott. I hope it doesn't evolve weirdly like Oshawott.

Definitely Froakie >w<

What are you guys talking about! The. Frog. Is. AWESOME!!

I really love it. I love them all, honestly, but I think Froakie is gonna be Water/Electric, so I love it even more.

I really really hope they do something original for the fire Fox. They got a super cute design, so I'm expecting the last evo to be awesome.

And for the grass one, I think it's gonna end up being Grass/Rock, it's like a leafy Oshawott, which is actually pretty neat.

I'm so happy they did this. A much, much needed change.

I like all of them like I said. Froakie is actually the first Gen VI Pokemon I saw! Haha, maybe I should use it. I'd prefer using all of them actually.

As long as the Fire type doesn't turn out to be part Fighting, I'll be happy with it!

At first I hated Froakie but now I love it. Fennekin is my favourite though it looks awesome. Chespin... it looks like the brain-damaged offspring of an Oshawatt and a pile of mulch.

I'm thinking Frokie will evolve to Water/Fighting, Fennekin will go Fire/Psychic or (hopefully) Fire/Ghost and Chespin will be either pure Grass or Grass/Ground when it evolves.

Froakie is a major disappointment, not going to lie, so no special mentions there. Fennekin, while cute, doesn't seem original enough for me to actually like it. It's too much like a cross between Vuplix and Zorua. Chespin on the other hand is amazing. It's cute and it's different. As of now, it definitely going to be my pick; and I generally don't like grass type starters. (Or grass types in general for that matter.)

Then again, who knows what starter I will favour the most/pick when I eventually get the game. My preference will definitely chop and change when more details of their evolutions will be released. (hopefully!).

I'm getting Fennekin, not because I don't like the other 2, oh no, I do like the designs of the other 2, it's just I'm an absolute sucker for foxes.

Eh...I'm not too sure what to think of them, although I'm usually hesitant on the starters up until the game's in my hands, so I'll get over it.

Hopefully the Fire starter doesn't get a Fighting evolution @_@

Fennekin looks absolutely adorable; I'm setting my sights on it~! I'm really hoping that they will be more subtle with the typing this time - liiiiike fire starter types don't necessarily -need- to be part fighting. xD Maybe like a fire / psychic variant? =o Hmmm~ Then again, I'm still perfectly happy with a general 'single type of fire' evolved starter pokemon. We never really had that since Gen II!

Like many others, as long as the fire starter doesn't end up being fire/fighting I am happy. I like all three Pokemon and thus I might base which one I choose depending on the other Pokemon that are shown as well as their evolutions.

Fennekin maybe? Just anything but Froakie, that design is even more dire than the other two.

Nope. Ninetales should be the first Fire/Ghost, not Fire/Psychic.


On-topic: Just please, Game Freak, stop Fire/Fighting charade now.

As someone that usually goes for the grass-types, I'm going for Chespin.

....Though what scares me the most is what their final evolutions are going to be like.

I can see many people's opinion changing once we found out the evolutionary lines, that's usually the case.
