It could be worse, Fennekin would end up being another Fire/Fighting starter with a similar bipedal appearance to Lucario and that one popular Digimon from the furry fandom.

Fennekin does look like it is capable of using Psychic attacks though it just might be a pure Fire type.

Chespin might be a part Ground or Steel type because it sort of looks like a Hedgehog and pins=steel?

Froakie will probably be a Water/Ground type because it is similar to Sesmitoad.

Varying on the scene I saw on Fennekin attacking Kirlia, it must be a Fire/Psychic line. But I don't think that they would make the evolution line Fire/Fighting, but I hope it doesn't. Or I'd get ticked off of this. I mean, I know of the origins of the final evos on Infernape and Emboar, but they have to stop.

Can't non-Psychic types learn Psychic moves, especially by TM? Or are Psychic moves unique in that regard?

Non-Psychic types can learn Psychic moves by TM, breeding, or Move Tutors. Ninetales can learn Psyshock via TM, and Zoroark can learn Extrasensory via breeding.

I like them! No I love them! Fennekin is sure to be a favorite. I can't wait to see the evolutions. Not sure which I'll pick yet, but I've always loved fire. *I'm not a pyro...yet* Froakie seems to be my leaning choice because a frog is amphibius *Sooooo spelled that wrong* and I wonder if it'll have another type besides water?

I might not even be a psychic move for all we know, it could be brand new move. Still, it looks a bit like Confusion to me so...

I personally think it would be amazing if they had this dual-typing because it would mean that your rival is more evenly matched with you.
You and I have very different ideas about what type triangles actually are!

But, I do agree that I think a secondary real type triangle to counteract the first would be amazing! I've been wanting that since Generation IV. I see Flying/Fighting/Ice or Rock/Ice/Ground being the only ones plausible (at least, from my perspective) with these sets of starters, though.

Also, if we don't get a secondary type triangle, I want Fennekin to evolve into a Fire/Ghost, though. Something mischievous about it gives me the feeling that it's a possibility, and there are plenty of youkai so it's not like it has to be a different Ninetales. Plus, Ghost types are amazing and a Ghost type starter would be awesome!

I'm gonna choose Fennekin or Chespin because they look cool. Unless Froakie has a cooler looking evolved form I don't think I'm going to start with it, even though water is probably the best type because they can learn good ice/water moves.

Chespin will be my choice :) though I'm going to want to see what their evolutions are - I find him the cutest. Clearly got my priorities straight.

The move Fennekin used in the trailer could have been Confuse Ray for all we know. Even if it was Confusion, it's a pretty common move outside of psychic types.

I like the starters either way and will be happy with anything except fire/fighting again lol.

I'm probably going to choose Fennekin when I get a copy of the game but the their evolutionary lines might change my mind. I really don't want Fennekin to become another Fire/Fighting starter to be honest. I also like Froakie because it's a frog and frogs are awesome. I'm going to have a hard time choosing most likely.

pretty good rumor stemming from mind going around that the starters final types are as follows: Chespin Grass/Fighting Fennekin Fire/Dark Froakie Water/Ice < this makes sense to me because then it would be pretty balanced with each starter having a type that is SE to one of the two other starters types. My favorite one out of the three right now seems to be froakie, he (most of my pokemon are referred to as he's) just looks like knows what he's doing in battle. He's got that astute aura about him that qualifies him to be with a trainer like myself.

What will you do if Fennekin's final evolution is a fire/fighting ? Will you still choose the cute little fire starter? Or are you tired of the fire/fighting combo and choose another starter?

I'll see what the evolutions looks like first. If I like the look of Fennekin's evolution better than the other starters, I would choose that even if it was Fire/Fighting. It would actually be the second time I use Fire/Fighting starter because I've never used an Infernape or Emboar in any of my teams before.

I personally would laugh. But no, I wouldn't be deterred from choosing Fennekin just because of a secondary typing. Whether or not I choose it is based on its final evo's stats, moveset and appearance.

I'll just have to settle for the generic flying type Pokemon that you find in the first route until I can find a better Pokemon to use.

I would choose Fennekin, no matter even if it becomes a Fire/Fighting. Because I just can tell that it's evolutions would be really cool and nicely done. :3

If it turned out to be fire/fighting I would still take it, but replace it as soon as I found a pokemon which is better.

I'm pretty sure I've seen Fennekin use a Psychic attack in the Direct video. I'm positive it won't be Fire/Fighting.

I'd be annoyed, but whether i actually chose it will be depending on stats/ the others evos etc.

It would be irritating because that would mean it turning into some type of masculine Pokemon and we've had enough of those for Fire starters.
