I can't decide! All of them are just too cool!

I want that witchy Dephox but Chesnaught is just too cool! I want to use Greninja for Water Shuriken though

I really can't decide. When I first saw the starters, I said I'd chose Froakie.

Then comes the second evolution line and Braixen's broom wand thing stole my heart!

Last evolution was Chesnaught and he was so cool! I can't decide!

I'd probably use Chespin because I hadn't used Fire starter since Torchic but every starter is just too tempting...

Most likely, I'll go with Froakie. I'm not a fan of Fennekin's final evo. Even though I like Chesnaught's design, I still think the proportions are kind of awkward. Greninja wins it for me. Still, I'm not totally sure.

Last generation made Typhosion's back sprite look like crap, so I might end up using one (an offspring of my Heart Gold Typhlosion in fact lol) in one of the games. can't wait. He's always been my favourite starter.

Honestly I've been considering Fennekin... But most likely it will be Froakie for me.

This ended up being a tricky choice for me! 3:

I really liked their first evolution - especially Fennekin and Chespin! Had high hopes. 3:
I quite liked Froakie as well.. I'm just not that much into frogs!
But anyway.. I was pretty sure I would be taking Fennekin because I haven't used a fire starter in a long time (Can't say I liked Tepig, Chimchar and Torchic all that much.) but I wanted to let it depend on their final evolutions.

Unfortunatly those are exactly the only Pokémon of this generation which don't appeal to me at all!
I completly dislike Chestnaughts design. : ( But then again - I don't feel like using plant this time around anyway!
Froakie's last evolution is actually quite cool-looking. But then - as mentioned before - I don't have much of a thing for frogs and in all honesty.. I find the tongue a bit disturbing. 3: <

Which leaves Fennekin!
I am very disapointed in Fennekins evolution as well but at least I believe it could grow on me. Perhaps it's not exactly the design I dislike so much but more that it's completely not what I was hoping it to be. I just don't like when they humanize Pokémon etc.
And unlike most - it seems - I don't think it looks feminine. :'')

Anyway - as I wanted to use fire anyway and Delphox seems to be the only one that may grow on me I will be sticking to Fennekin as I had originally planned.

So these evos are legit, then? I'm happy with what we got. I think they all look awesome.

Greninja is definitely my favorite, though. Dark and Water are my top two favorite types, and it looks great (who doesn't like ninjas?), so I really couldn't be more pleased with how Froakie turned out.

Design-wise, I like Delphox and Chesnaught about the same, but I don't particularly care for Grass or Fighting types, so I'll be choosing Fennekin for my second play through. Also, Psychic is my third favorite type. I'll do Chespin last.

After the awful starters in Gen V, I was pretty worried that they'd screw up with Gen VI as well. Thankfully, I think I can now rest easy until release day. Of course, we don't have the stats or full movesets yet, but I'm optimistic.

I don't see anything wrong with the designs, most people if I recall claimed 5th Gen had the most lame-looking starters, maybe because they hated Emboar so much for being the third Fire/Fighting starter in a row.

These starters evolution lines have some motif of being based on RPG classes, namely a fighter/knight (Chespin/Quilladin/Chesnaught), a mage (Fennekin/Braixen/Delphox) and a thief/rogue (Froakie/Frogadier/Greninja).

I honestly think the X/Y starters look way better than the ones in BW, and after seeing their final evos and their typings, i can say i'm really excited about this Gen!! I'm not quite sure who i like more, Chespin or Froakie, but since i'm getting both versions I'll pick one in each :D

I'm really glad Gamefreak went with some completely new type combos with this Gen's starters!

I want to try something new and I'll go with Froakie. I mainly pick Fire Types, but using Fire types somehow make the game boring, it's just so OP. So... Froakie looks weird to me ans that's why I like it. XD

It's funny they gave us a fourth straight generation with a starter that becomes part-Fighting, but the first time that's not the Fire-type. The types of the final stage Kalos starters are Grass/Fighting, Fire/Psychic and Water/Dark.

I guess that's true but I just don't think they are great looking as previous starters. I haven't seen the final evolution's yet so I can't comment on that, But I think they are too, I dont know, Cartoony?

since seeing the final evo's i am going to choose chespin i really dislike the fire types final evo and froakie is alright but i think chespin's final evo looks really good and good defense stats too and i will choose charmander i would choose squirtle but i like clauncher and i want a gyrados so there is too much choice for water types the only grass type i would like to try is skiddo.

Right now, i'm still pretty set on picking Fennekin, but I really like the designs of Chesnaught and Greninja so I'm still sort of conflicted on which one to pick. I've always picked the Grass starter though and Chespin's final evo really changed my mind about it and I could continue that tradition or break it by going with Fennekin. I really like the idea of a psychic fox Pokemon.

Nope. I don't think there's anything wrong with them at all. I think they all look really nice.

i think ill be going chespin, i rarely choose grass starters(the only other time ive used one was treecko) but i just feel like i prefer it over fennekin and froakie. and ill be choosing squirtle from the professor, and the torchic event, so theres an even spread of the three starter types right there.

I'm choosing fennekin because she's my favorite starter in a really long time. And charmander but he probably won't stay in my team because I'll have fennekin. I love her but not the evolved forms so I'm keeping her little.

Delphox is the worst starter to date, but I do love it's Fire/Psychic typing. So as of right now I think I'll go with it. If not, then Greninja because even though I'm going Kalos pokemon only I want a mega on my team and I'm thinking of going with Gardevoir and I don't want two Psychic types on my team.

Overall Greninja is by far the best of the three. Chesnaught is alright as well.
