I'm hoping for Chespin to be either a Grass/Ground or Grass/Rock Pokemon. Grass/Steel would be awesome too, but somehow i think that's rather unlikely. Grass/Dark is a pretty good bet too, i'd love to see another pokemon with that typing

Honestly I'm seeing Grass/Fighting for Chespin. I have no idea why, but its design just screams that it's going to evolve into a Fighting type. Which would be a nice change, since it would more than likely mean Fennekin wouldn't evolve into a Fire/Fighting type.

I'm going for either Fennikin or Chespin

mainly Fennikin because I LOVE fire starters but I absolutely despised Chimchar and Tepig, they were too hideous for me to like and even though Emboar grew on me a bit, I still hate it and Infernape... so finally GF introduced a cute looking fire starter that everyone can like!

Chespin because I've never went for a grass starter since Chikorita (it's the only grass starter I've ever played with) so I might pick it for change

Froakie is a NO for me definitely, I don't like the design at all. I have no idea why they decided to make it a friggin' frog >.>

I'd actually thought of something pretty interesting just now (at least, concerning the grass starters):

First Gen: Special
Second Gen: Defensive
Third gen: Special
Fourth Gen: Physical
Fifth Gen: Physical/Special

So maybe Chespin might be leaning towards either a more physical typing, or just remain Grass with a defensive-oriented moveset, like Meganium. I kind of hope it's not the latter and it's more the former, really.

I'm just totally going by looks and design, but Chespin looks like a pokemon who is going to be dishing out left and right, so i think/hope he'll be leaning more towards offensive skills!

Nope, we've got nothing yet! All we know for sure are what the first stages look like and their typings. We'd love to know more, but sadly we don't =/

Yep, and likely won't know much more about the starters until either next month or the month afterwards, really. We still have a whole summer left to go before the release of the games, so GF really are taking their sweet time. xD;

Chespin easily! It's the best grass type starter yet. I know it's weird but I feel like it's evolution will already be awesome without even seeing it.

I usually go for grass starters (water if the grass type is horrible, like in Gen 4 and 5.) The fire ones always just feel.. generic to me and I don't think they look all that great either. I've always loved Venosaur over Charizard, Sceptile over Blaziken, etc.

Fennekin hands down! Chespin is cute too. Not so fond of Froakie, but he'll probably grow on me.

idk, I think Chespin is cute, but its evolution won't be outright amazing like I picture Fennekin to be...? That's just how I feel, though :(

I can't picture Fennekin as anything but a Snivy clone. Its going to get controversal evolution in some way that makes people royally miffed at it and Gamefreak and take a huge hit to its potential with a huge mess up to its stats.

I mean, I picture Chespin's evolution to be Torterra-esque, so maybe it'd look badass perhaps? :x Either way, I wouldn't mind!

Nahhh, Fennekin will have an awesome fox design. I'll be surprised if the final evolution is on all fours, though.

I mean, then it'd just be a Ninetails copy in that case, or at least I'd imagine it to be! :x I feel that having Fennekin evolve into a bipedal fox of some sort would be more ideal.

Can't wait for more news on the starters, including the potential news of the evolutions being revealed. I'm hoping Froakie looks good when he evolves cos I think he's my fave of the bunch, but let's hope Fennekin and Chespin's final evos don't look terrible either.

And yeah I do agree with Derk that Fennekin needs to be biped when it evolves, like most Fire starters are.

I would choose Chespin, just because I always choose the Grass type in a new generation. But I will never be able to get myself X and Y so yeah.. :/

I hope that Chespin's final evolution will become Grass/Dark, Fennikin's evo Fire/Psychic and Froakie's evo Water/Fighting. So there will be this SE circle twice! (If you follow me)

I'm liking the designs of all three overall. Fennekin is my favorite out of the three; however, Froakie and Chespin are tied for second haha. Froakies design is unique for a water starter. I like it! Can't wait to see what Chespin evolves into. I see fire/psychic, water/fighting (maybe water/ice or pure water), and finally grass/dark as their respective types. What do you guys think?

I sort of want GF to base Fennekin's final evo on Alakazam and Zoroak. That would look sick! with fire coming out of her ears haha

Honestly I'd love to see quadrupedal Fire final evolution. Although people are worried about it being a Ninetales clone, I severely doubt that they would keep it's appearance that similar when it finally hits its third stage. It'd be a cool change to, instead of becoming bipedal like the majority of starters have, excluding some of the grass starters.

Fire coming out of ears would be awesome as a design! But I don't think they'll make Pokemon too similar to past Pokemon especially not if they're a starter :(

Just based on their first forms, I guess Fennekin is my favourite, but I'll reserve final judgment based on what their final forms look like since those are the forms I'll have to deal with in the long run.

Most starters change pretty drastically nowadays so I have high hopes for the water starter being more appealing in the end. :D
