Considering Fennekin is based on a fennec fox, an animal which lives mostly in deserts and scrubland, I would be surprised if it didn't become a fire/ground type. While I would fully support it becoming a fire/psychic type I find the idea of a fire/ground type to be a more interesting combination.

Also Fire/Ground has been less used than Fire/Psychic with only Camperupt having the former, and Victini and Zen mode Darmanitan having the latter.

Fire/Ground would seem like a more fitting type n_n;; Honestly, having the Ground would be more of a good thing than a bad thing, 4x water weak isn't too bad considering Fire-types should be kept out of the vicinity of water types anyway, and STAB Earthquake/(insert fire move here) is always a neat little combination to have~!

yeah you have. How about go on to the announced pokemon page and it shows some of the moves. so yeah u_u

oh i didnt check that part, whoops!

In that case it seems more than likely that fennekin would be fire/psychic, but i wouldn't be 100% on it, since Xander did bring up a good point that there are Pokemon that can be taught Psychic as a TM, but then again, I'm assuming this is learning psychic as level-up, which is odd for a first-stage pokemon, tbh...

There's a "leaked" concept art of Chespin's final evolution spreading around. Here's the original link to it: http://prntscr.com/1de2kx

Somehow, it reminds me of Sonic the Werehog, which is giving me the idea that since it's a hedgehog, Chespin may be like Classic Sonic, while its first stage evolution may be like Modern Sonic.

That's just the same as the fanart that has been made. It is probably just some "concept art" or the fan concept art.

That picture/concept was made back when Chespin was first shown back in January.



Its the same design. I think it may be fake if not then this guy back from January hit a pretty good nail.

They look almost too good to be fake though IMO.

A lot of the times the fans make better evolutions for the Pokemon than Gamefreak does. Many of the fan versions to Gen 5 starters were way better than what we ended up with, especially Snivy's line. Those three that both Powerserge and I posted have existed like a week after the starters were shown. They've been on the internet since January. If those were the real evolutions we'd have had more hints about it by now since they were already "leaked".

Chances of them being fan created are quite high. Again fans have almost always done a better job at designing evolutions....


The picture Powerserge and I posted are also from Pivix which is a Japanese art site similar to Deviant Art. They originated there and made their way to 2ch or 4chan.

Not all the time. Most fan evolutions suffer from the "it just got bigger" syndrome, which was common in the first two gens. It basically describes evolutions that receives little to no changes in their appearances from their basic forms other than their size. The Kanto and Johto starters were guilty of this, but since Gen 3, starters are trying to look less like their basic forms by adding more details in their designs such as the Tepig gaining a bipedal postion when evolving into Pignite or Samurott taking a quadpedal position and took a different look rather being a bigger, bipedal version of Oshawott.

To me, the evolutions of the starters always resemble the 3 main stages of life for us humans; childhood, adolescence, and adulthood. I see what Pinkie-Dawn is talking about, but I think that GF has adhered to that visual semblance to "growing up" in their starters since Gen 1.

I definitely agree. I remember seeing the one with the final Snivy evolution having the legs and flowers at it's side...it looked devastatingly beautiful.

I only ever took Bulbasaur or Squirtle in gen 1, because Charmander is hard at the start with rock and water gym.

Definitely going with Fennekin. I was disappointed with the last two Fire starters. (Not a fan of the animals they were based on.) I really like Fennekin's design and am excited to see its evolutions and how it fares in battle!

To be honest I like all 3...

1-Fennekin
2-Chespin
3-Froakie

Froakie is like the serious one...so It's gotta become a bulky fighting type in one of the trailers or pics i tlook like it meditate

Chespin-The Trouble Maker

Fennekin: The Cute one

I will be picking FEnnekin and Chespin...hubby is getting Froakie unless I feel like being nice and letting him have Chespin

I've adored Chespin since first laying eyes on it so he'll definitely be my pick of the litter. I believe he's rumoured to evolve to take on the Grass/Dark tying which sounds very cool indeed, and with his cute little face I could never say no to him. I just really hope it isn't a case like Oshawott in which they take something adorable and ruin it completely with its evolutions haha.

Huh?You didnt like samurott?I am surprised!

I think that Chespin will grow more spikes and get a more menacing look.

I'm choosing Froakie. If they put Charmander in to be caught in the wild, I'm going hunting, and I'll need the advantage.

I can't imagine a Fire/Ground Pokemon without it being more Tank-like, and so far Fennekin's looking a LOT more 'Specially-based', which is what I'm hoping for. Also, foxes in Japan are generally perceived as spiritual beasts with psychic powers in their tails (just look at Ninetales, Naruto, etc.). I REALLY want a Fire/Psychic, but I just hope we don't get a Ninetales v2.0..

I'm super psyched for X and Y! The fact that it has new gimmicks and stepped up graphics really impressed me a lot.

I started to like Chespin when it was first shown along with the 2 other starters and legendaries because it reminded me of Pachirisu. Maybe because of its similar face. Lol

Fennekin all the way! It's the first Fire starter (not counting Cyndaquil from SoulSilver as that was a remake xD) that I'll pick as my starter in my first game of the generation since Torchic. Chimchar and Tepig weren't that appealing compared to Piplup and Snivy, sadly Snivy isn't the best in battle without it's DW ability...

It's funny how Chespin was my fave of these three at first but suddenly after seeing awesome looking fanart of Froakie and the fact its design grew on me, I actually have Froakie as my new fave of this bunch. Opinions can change so quickly over time and it continues my trend of choosing the Water starter because surprise I love Water-types.

The only time I never picked Water was in 4th Gen, where I picked the Fire-type.
