Weird, out of the three, the one I like the least is the most popular (Fennekin).

I like Chespin's badass potential, but Froakie has that X-factor. I don't know what it is, but he looks so suave and gangsterlike. Definitely going to pick Froakie first as soon aas I get my hands on Pokémon X!

I'm choosing Froakie as my first X starter, too. I want my own foam covered frog! I don't really like going with the crowd with picking the fire starter on the first play through. As for Chespin, maybe i'll go with it on my second play through. It looks kinda cute

Fennekin. Is. Just. Too. Adorable.

Chespin's pretty cute too, but Fennekin beats it by a long shot. Froakie's design isn't terrible, but it's just sort of meh for me. There's also that weird thing on it's nose. What IS that? Foam? Mustache?

So...yeah, I'm going with Fennekin. I always go for the cute ones, whether they're strong or not. I always picked Chikorita in GSC, despite it techincally being the worst out of the three. I haven't used a Fire-starter since RSE, and I ALMOST went for Tepig in BW, but then I saw it's evolutions.

Here's to hoping Fennekin's evolutions won't be as terrible as Tepig's.

My fav is Fennekin because I hope he becomes a fire/psychic type. But with all honesty, I am actually interested in the final evolutions, not the first stage. If Froakies final evo is awesome, and Fennekins evo sucks, then I'll choose Froakie. But for now I'm going with Fennekin.

I like all three, it's just that I like Fennekin a little more.

I thought the last thing that would interest me would be a frog, but when I saw Froakie, I knew straight away that it will be my first pick. I don't even know why.

For me I think the fact that it was a frog made me more disappointed I didn't really feel attracted to it. Normally I love frogs but this one just doesn't fit, mainly because it just looks so... librarian.

Yeah the frog looks a sort of librarian al right. I also don't like that Grass like Poke. Looks like a relative of Oshawott to me

I've been hearing a lot of comparisons relating Chespin to Oshawott, but I really don't see it either. Maybe I'm jsut missing something? Oshawott is supposed to be some kind of otter, while Chespin, iirc, is some sort of chipmunk of some sort, so I can't really possibly see how the two can be related...o.o

Surely you meant something else?

For now it looks like I'm going with Froakie, but I might change my mind depending on what the final evos look like.

Whoops, was thinking of Piplup.

...See, if Oshawott should ever get confused with anything, it should be the Piplup line. Not Chespin. x_x

Starters rarely last in their first stage past the first gym. So really this whole poll is moot because we're deciding on something that's going to last about an hour or so in-game time.

It's not necessarily unnecessary because it does help you decide what you want to start with at times. I mean no matter how awesome how the last Pokemon in the evolution line is, if the actual starter is ugly then I don't think it's something you'd necessarily want to start exploring the region with. :x

Chespinney's, of course! He's the first grass starter based on a mammal, and I always pick the grass starter, so obviously him.

Fennekin does look cool though. Fennecs are epic.

I thought Chespin was supposed to be a hedgehog.

I think that even if Chespin evolves into something I don't like, I'd still pick him.

I don't see the similarity between those two...I think Victini and Sylveon look more alike than Chespin and Oshawott do...and even than Vic and Syl don't look that much alike after one get's past the eyes.

Well, in regards to Chespin and Oshawott, I think it's mostly the vibe they carry. They're both the cute, awkward, red-nosed, small-sized mammals. It's the innocent, charming aura they have. If anyone gets what I'm saying~

Either Chespin or Fennekin, though I voted for Fennekin. Grass types usually have sucked since G III (Chespin should have been the third gen starter and Treecko this one.] though I loved Turtwig's evolution Dodaitoise.

Starter evolutions can be discussed in the Starter Discussion thread. Off you go!

Those are some pretty neat evolutions concepts though. The first set of evolutions I saw a while ago and I've been quite a fan of it ever since. It's certainly one of the better evolutions designs anyway.

...but my gosh, what happened to Froakie's evolutions under the fifth spoiler. I really hope Froakie's real evolutions don't look anything so large and oogly. D:

I hope that Chespin and it's line get a good moveset as the grass starters seem to get some of the worst movepools (Meganium and Serperior for example) out of the starters.

Like a lot of other people I'd choose Fennekin. I've been choosing fire types as starters since emerald and I don't plan on choosing the other types cause Fennekin looks badass :3
