      Shelled Chestnut Pokemon? Looks like Chespin's final evo will be Grass/Steel.

        I don't think Chespin will be part Steel, I'm actually hoping for Ground or Rock as 2nd type.

          There wasn't even a steel type in Blastoise's time.

              Based on the description and the fact that Chespin learns Rollout, I'm starting to think Chespin's final evo might be a hard hitting, bulky, heavily armored Pokemon that's part Rock. Maybe with the following stats:

              HP - Average
              Atk - Above Average
              Def - Above Average
              Sp. Atk - Average
              Sp. Def - Average
              Speed - Below Average

                I'm really hoping for Grass/Rock on Chespin. I can see it being almost like a knight, with maybe big shoulders, long claws, and a tail with a ball with spikes. Keeping the hat though, with a horn.

                As for Fennekin, I think it should be very feminine. Fire/Psychic would be best IMO. Hey, if Chespin is going to be knight like, why not make a "royal" theme with the starters? Anyway, I'm hoping that the fire hair comes out of it's ears and makes a necklace with a orb on it. With red markings on it's legs and two tails dipped with red. Keeping the tan coloring of the body.

                This may suprise people, but I'm really, really, hoping for Water/Dragon on Froakie. It could be a king with fin like dragon things on it's head making a crown (Think of Dragonite's Wings, but smaller I guess). Then, a moustache with Dragon Whiskers, like Magikarp kind of. Huge cloud as as a tail (think Whimsicott maybe?), along with clouds around it's wrists. Can learn fly and floats on clouds. Has sharp edges on arms, a bit like Gabite, but thinner with two on each.

                  Steel type didn't exist then though. They coulda made him Steel in Gen 2, but I guess they didn't want to touch the starters since Magnemite fit better and was lesser used.

                  Remember, we have a current tradition of them being Fire/Fighting. Froakie and Chespin are both looking incredibly awesome...I almost have to change my water only policy for Chespin.

                  OMGOMGOMG Rollout?! Good chance Chespin evolves into Grass/Rock then! OMG YAY! I almost want to pick it over Froakie now just cause Grass/Rock is freakin beast since it loses weakness to the other two!

                  I'm not saying the possibility isn't there, but I really have a strong doubt that GameFreak will go the Fire/Fighting type route again, especially with Fennekin.

                  The more I learn about the starters though and their possibilities of secondary types, the more I like them. The idea of Chespin being Grass/Rock? Thats awesome! They've already given off a better impression that the starters from the last generation in my opinion. The same goes for the rest of Pokémon revealed recently too.

                    I'm on the other spectrum...I'm expecting Gamefreak to do Fire/Fighting again since its the better type combination used so far and don't see any reason to change that up now. People can complain all they want, but Fire/Fighting isn't a broken type combination in a good or bad way. Its pretty balanced.

                    We also didn't think Tepig could be Fire/Fighting but it was. So as far as expectations

                    Chespin Evo Grass/Rock
                    Fennekin Evo Fire/Fighting
                    Froakie Evo Water/Electric OR Water/Flying

                      I take Fennekin because I like most the type of fire and is more beudiful.

                          Or Rock. Armour could mean Rock too.

                          I should have said that in my original post haha.

                          Froakie Evo Water/Electric OR Water/Flying
                          It's not broken but it's pretty dumb if you ask me; they could at least try working with other combinations and/or instead give a Water/Grass starter Fighting for once. If they're going that route again I'd rather they just give all of the starters Fighting type as the secondary.

                            I feel like this time one between frokie and chespin is going to become part fighting, while fennekin is going to be part psychic, that would be awesome

                            Froakie Evo Water/Electric OR Water/Flying
                            Don't get me wrong, i love the Fire/Fighting type combo, it would just be extremely uncreative of GameFreak to have yet another Fire starter that will eventually have Fighting as his second type.
                            I love fire starters, and i really hope Fennekin to be something more original that what we have seen for the last 3 Generations. All the other combos you are speculating i can see happening as well, although i think Water/Flying is more likely.

                              Usually I don't go for the Grass Types, but in Gen. 5 I went with Snivy until I found out I like Oshawott better. But in this case, I really like Chespin's overall design, I hope it's evolutions look as cool as Chespin does, and hopefully their stats are pretty well too.

                              Chespin is my favorite design-wise as well. I usually never pick the grass starter, but if his evolutions look as cool as he does and he gets a decent second type (hopefully rock or ground) it might be the first time I'll start my adventure with the Grass starter :D

                                I'm actually unsure who to use as my starter now, all 3 have now become equally adorable to me, it's hard to choose, I'll wait til the first gym leader is revealed so I can know how to get a good start

                                I've also grown to like all three over the last few months, at first Fennekin was a dead cert but now... I'm kinda torn.

People can complain all they want, but Fire/Fighting isn't a broken type combination in a good or bad way. Its pretty balanced.

                                    We also didn't think Tepig could be Fire/Fighting but it was. So as far as expectations

                                    Chespin Evo Grass/Rock
                                    Fennekin Evo Fire/Fighting
                                    Froakie Evo Water/Electric OR Water/Flying
                                    It may not be broken in a competive sense but it feel unoriginal now after three generations of Fire/Fighting. I hope they do something special with Fennekin even making it pure Fire like Typlosion.

                                      Many unoriginal things have been used longer than fire/fighting. First route rat, early game regional birds, pikachu clones. These are ignored because they are "tradition" but its boring if they use a good type combination. Either complain about it all or don't. The others are way more annoying and Fire/fighting are used more than other starters. Majority of starters are low rank tiers and the two non fighting starters are bottom tier as well. All there are are lame excuses with worse or more annoying yet ignored repeats. If they're to be more original start with whats been the same for 5 generations now.

                                      Fennekin is already at a high chance of being completely destroyed when the games come out. She can be fire/psychic with only physical moves. A physical attacker with only special moves. Horrible stats/move pool to make her unappealing much like Snivy when gen 5 was released. With fire/fighting at leadt she's practically guaranteed to be used more than the other two. Maybe about as much as infernape if she doesn't get a stat/movepool shafting. Chespin has the best potential if grass rock as his only worry will be the fire/fighting starters.
