I think that they'll do a good job, seeing how the positive the response have been to the starters, or in the end the evolutions will just grow on me.
The more fanart designs I see of the starters, the more hope I have that GameFreak will not mess them up. Loving the Fire/Electric design. I could actually see that working out if I didn't think Fennekin's evolutions might take the Fire/Psychic route so much.

I would actually really like seeing Fennekin become a Fire/Ground type because of Fennec foxes being native to the desert.

I also think that it would make sense to have it follow an ancient Egyptian sphinx theme in its evolutions. Just to, you know, differentiate it from Ninetales.

I know no one who wouldn't take Fennekin! Probably almost everybody would take Fennekin - I hate that! Froakie looks very bad and Chespin looks like a mascot for a read fible in the elementary school!

Hmmm... that's really interesting. Thanks for that. Certainly makes me appreciate Samurott a little more now.

I honestly love them all; a huge improvement from last generation.

I will have to see the new gen 6 pokemon as well as evolutions before I can pick one.
However, like most, I am leaning toward Fennikin!

Well, that would be interesting.
A fire/ground would be 4X weakness to water.

I feel like Chespin will be Grass/Ground though.
The origin of the name alludes to Groundhog in the Japanese name.

I don't think that GF would make two starters with ground, but we are talking very presumptuously!

I would then go on to guess that Grass/Ground which is 1X weakness to water would equate to Fire/Steel X1, and lastly, Water/Poison 1X. The fire/steel typing seems to be a stretch though!

(I hope they all just have one type)

They made Marshtomp and Swampert even though that made the water starters 4X weak to grass-type attacks.

Although, the more I think about it, if GF went the route I'm thinking with a Sphinx theme for Fennekin, then it would make more sense to do a Fire/Rock pairing. It's still be 4X weak to water-types, but it'd free up Chespin to become Grass/Ground.

No problem. Actually, Samurott is one of my favorite of the starter evolutions period. Although the only final form of a starter that I haven't liked was Emboar.

Nickname time!
Chespin: GreenSonic
Fennekin: Vulpix
Froakie: ugh... actually I have no idea what to name it..
Random, much?
Anyway, froakie kinda looks like it would be a water ground poke and fennekin maybe fire (FIGHTING) psychic or maybe even fire ghost
But if fennekin turns out to b ANOTHER FIRE FIGHTING I SWEAR TO GOD I WILL calm down and deal with it

If they didn't evolve, I would go with Fennekin. It's design looks the coolest, at least to me.

But, as I think more about it, I can't decide between Chespin and Fennekin. This might sound weird, but, to me, Chespin's design looks like it has a lot of potential for its evolutions to be really awesome, whereas Fennekin has a lot of potential to have its design ruined after evolving. I can't really explain why I feel that way, but still.

Personally, I see Chespin evolving into a Grass/Ground, Fennekin evolving into a Fire/Ghost, and Froakie staying a pure water type.

If Chespin ends up with Infernape's stats and Torterra's type, that'd suit me perfectly.

That is so true, I feel the same way with Chespin and Fennekin right now. Chespin just looks like a little warrior! It's awesome! I've seen some cool fanart of him going along a knightly evolution and I like it a lot. And I just love Fennekin.

Nah I don't see why they'd repeat the name of Serperior in the generation after it. If anything Serperior almost guarantees that Chespin won't be called Chesperior. XD;

Chespin reminds me of Pachirisu
Fennelin reminds me of Zorua
Froakie reminds me of...Meditite?

I like Chespin. Chespin looks adorable and confident and powerful. It's probably one of my preferred starters. However, until they release information on their evolved forms, I'm undecided.
I hope they're neat.

I think I want to take Chespin home! So it'll be my starter. Let's hope that this time around it's even better than Serpy.

Rhyperior was in Generation 4.
Serperior was in Generation 5.

Chesperior...as awful as it sounds...is still possible in Gen 6...just as the possibility of Fennekin being Fire/Fighting. Just pray that neither happen.

I love ALL 3 of them. The frog took a whole day to grow on me. And Chespin gave be the worst first impression, but now I do love them all!

Now, Frokie better have a manly Mustache when he evolves. Some of my love is based on the FanArt Evolutions!

I like all three starters; I think each one's got its own unique personality to it.

If I had to choose one, I think I'm leaning toward starting with Chespin. He looks like he'd be a good traveling buddy.

Lol. I love that picture. I'm with Blaziken (who happened to just be my first starter...), Fennekin better not be Fire/Fighting!
Also It'll be interesting if Fennekin's evolution does turn into Fire/Psychic as it'll mean the only none Fire/Fighting Starters (not counting the pure Typlosion) are strong against Fighting (Charzard with Flying and Fennekin's evo with Psychic...). It'll also make Fennekin the strongest out of the six!

Chespin's evolutions look pretty cool, although I'm not sure if the ones I seen were legit.
So far my favorite is Fennekin. It's so cute :3

Fingers crossed for Chespin evolving into a Grass/Ghost or Grass/Dark type. This is the first time I didn't like the Water type, and the second time I liked the grass type.
