Yep! A lot of people went with Serperior once they found out Snivy evolved into it.

...Of course, Snivy was already pretty popular in the first place. I wonder if the same thing will happen to Chespin.

Hmm... it's tough for me to say.

I think that Fennekin would be my pick at first glance, but I'll have to see the stats & move pools for all three before I can really decide what I would pick. After all, looks don't matter to me, it's the stats & move pool that matters.

If either or both of those are a flop like with the B/W starters, I'll be like, "Dammit, Gamefreak! You screwed up the starters again!"

At the moment, I'm definitely going with Fennekin, though they're all starting to look awesome to me. Though my opinion may change depending on what the evolutions look like.

OK, I just re watched the video and it's so clear that they did the most amazing thing yet with the starters.... They made them Fire/Psychic , Grass/Dark , and Water/Fighting !!!!! Just look at the trademark colors for the second attack they all use... Purple waves for the Grass one (i.e. Shadow attacks from Dark pokemon). Pink waves for the Fox (every psychic attack since, ever), and punches for the Frog! I love this kind of balance (if this indeed turns out to be true) and it's a very nice touch.

Vulpix is a fire fox. But I'm guessing you meant starters...
To pertain to the topic, I think I may start with aforementioned fire fennec. At least in one of them....

Basiing on first impressions, I'd choose Chespin. Fennekin is yet another Zorua/Riolu and I hate those. Froakie looks boring, it might have interesting evolutions though.
Secondary type predictions:
Chespin - Ground/Grass
Fennekin - can be anything. Depends on evos.
Froakie - Psychic/Poison

Nearly perfect balance that would be, that would be great :D

The Grass and Water starters are probably the ugliest ones out of all six gens, honestly. That fox though. That thing. Yeah. That right there. Is adorable. And if they ruin its final evo by making it Fire/Fighting, I will be MAD.

I sure hope Fennekin won't become a fighting type... lol

I am a little tired of Fire/Fighting starters. XD Cyndaquil is my favorite Fire starter so far...

I like Fennekin's design best of the three but I won't make my call as to who I like best overall until we get evolutions and the secondary types (if any), and stats, movesets, etc. I didn't like Oshawott that much at first but now it's my favorite starter in 5th gen, after I learned its moveset and stats and stuff.

I'm really happy they revealed all the names together, for the different languages. I feel like they might do that for future Pokemon reveals too... I think that'd be pretty awesome anyway. Because they probably have them all decided... They have to at about the same time anyway because it's gonna be released at the same time.

Chespin looks pretty spiffy. I haven't liked a grass starter since Red/Blue, so I am kinda setting my hopes on him not turning into something lame. That, and I can't well go with Fennekin as my buddy has always wanted a fennec fox for a pet. Pretty sure he has that one claimed.

Yeah, it's been due for ages now, and they "kinda" delivered with D/P, but this is really neat. I got a thing for balance :D

Is it just me, or do the new starters look more like fakemon? Maybe one of the new artists they hired for Gen VI was a fakemon designer? Also, every Grass starter is suppose to have a reptilian appearance, but Chespin looks something like a Gopher/Groundhog hybrid, which isn't suitable as a starter. Fennekin looks like Vulpix and Victini's love child given that they're all based off of foxes, but isn't Fennekin based on the same species of fox Victini is based off of? I wonder what species of frog they used this time that inspired Froakie's design? I know the Politoed is a generic frog and the Croagunk line is based on poison dart frogs (the Seismitoad line is based on toads, who are different from frogs).

I am not 100% until more info is revealed, but as of now I'll probably be going with Chespin because it SO DARN CUTE. I want this grass type to overshadow the bad grass types out there, and it'll be strong I hope (:

Since I'm a grass type enthusiast, I'll be going with Chespin. And it looks awesome. :3 Grass types rule and fire types drool! xD Kidding.

Don't know why but the Grass-type starter just doesn't look like a Pokemon to me... Anyway, I think they did great with the Fire-type and Water-type starter, I like them both (and I consider them cuter than Tepig and Oshawott themselves). I still like Snivy more than Chespin

My favourite starter is Froakie (after being a while deciding if I liked more Fennekin). The more I look at them, the more I want to start a new game in Pokemon X/Y!

They're all ridiculously adorable so I'm going to have a very hard time choosing this time around. Probably between the water and fire starters to me this time around, though Froakie is just so adorable. D:

They all look so good this time round! The fire one looks familiar but good nonetheless.

I wonder if we'll have any dual types (please no Fire/Fighting!)...

I'll choose Fennekin because I like fire types and I've always wanted a Pokemon based on a fennec fox.

When I first saw the starters, I thought they were all very well-done and cute. At second glance, I could see some resemblance to other already-existing Pokémon...but still, I like them a lot. My first guesses were Grass/Fighting, Water/Poison and...Fire/Normal. But after seeing the video, I agree on Grass/Dark, Water/Fighting and Fire/Psychic. It would be very cool if that happened, because Dark/Fighting/Psychic work in a trio similar to Water/Grass/Fire.

I'll go with Fennekin for now, since I usually gor for the fire-type, but I won't be making any real decisions until I find out what their base stats are.
