What do you mean by this? Scrafty is more of an offensive Pokemon than a defensive, iirc. oO

The information I read (That came from a source who correctly gave the names of 4 new pokemon before they were officially released) had also mentioned a few other new types

I think there was like, Sound type, Cosmic, and Magic in addition to Fairy

I think Fairy & Magic were possibly the same type and I confused something though

So what if....

Fennekin : Fire/Fairy
Froaki : Water/Cosmic
Chespin : Grass/Sound
I disagree with this, but I'd rather let Suicune's quote do the talking for me. xD;

I think if they're going to introduce a type, it will only be the single type and I doubt any of the starters will gain that as a second type.
While new types are an amazing thing and all in concept...must there be so many of them to add? If anything, there'll just be one type to add in this generation, seeing as literally no other type warrants nerfing whatsoever other than dragons. Any more would really just clutter up the type chat and it'll just be a redundant addition, at least in my eyes. o.o;

      Sorry to those who like fennekin but she looks Awwwesssffullll to me, way to chibi and girly. One thing's for sure that we've ended the Fire-Fighting chain. I think Froaky might turn flying or psychic judging by those clouds which is why I'm going for him

          I just imagine Froakie going one of three routes:
          • Water/Ice
          • Water/Flying (A frog that can fly. You know this isn't outside the realm of possibility here!)
          • Water

          And it's honestly hard for me to pick between the three. Knowing how "out-of-the-box" Gamefreak tends to be, I'm tempted to gravitate towards the second option, though I wouldn't be surprised either if it was the last or the first one.

                  Pretty sure Froakie was using the move Quick Attack... A normal type move... Suggesting he might be a fast attacker... (Not against him being Fighting, just saying)

                  On another note, I think Chespin might also be a Grass/Rock-Ground-Steel type, as his French name, Marisson, comes from "hérisson", the French word for porcupine. I picture a Porcupine being Rock/Ground/Steel type...

                    I like Chespin the most. He doesn't look cute or so, and i hate pokemons with the bricht smiles and pink colors etc.
                    It's not that i hate those, but just will never train them.

                      Since I first saw these revealed, Froakie has yet to lose my attention. It will almost definitely be the first Pokemon I choose for my starter.

                      Chespin also looks like it has an awful lot of potential to me, and I am eager to see how it evolves. I am expecting a fighting type.

                      Fennekin has been less interesting, in my opinion, although that is not to say I dislike it. The other two are a little more to my tastes. I would not be surprised if it became a fire/ground type, actually, considering it is based on a fennec fox.

                      I faintly remember hearing that the new starter types would be as follows.

                      Fire/Psychic.
                      Water/Dark.
                      Grass/Fighting.

                      Of course, I have no reference or source from that. It's all rumours, rather than anything solid. I would, however, be perfectly content with this typing set.

                      Mmmmm, I wouldn't have any issues with Chespin's final evo being Grass/Fighting, but preferably I'd like to have it be like Torterra and be Grass/Ground, if not Grass/Rock. Seems like it'd evolve into something huge and bulky, so might as well make it a bulky type, more or less. xD;

                      Though I guess Fighting is very possible as well~!

                        Those three typing have been suggested as secondary typings since gen 4, it makes me think the rumors are just fan service making us think our wish is fulfilled...hopefully it will be but I wouldn't hold my hopes too high. Also maybe they end up switching the secondary types on us, Froakie will be Water/Psychic, and Chespin Grass/Dark, and Fennekin Fire/Fighting...it'll complete the trio but it'll also mean another Fire/Fighting...also maybe instead of Water/Dark for froakie it could be Water/Ghost...however that'll mean Chespin's fighting moves won't work, of course the way the rumor sets it up it's Fennekin's psychic that won't work on Froakie's dark...

                          That typing wouldn't be my preference, although I see nothing wrong with it. It probably is fan service though and has no real basis, which is why I'm hesitant to believe it just yet. Still, it's better than another fire/fighting type, eh?

                          Honestly? I like to imagine the white "fur" on Froakie to be clouds or mist, and it slowly evolving into a water/flying type Pokémon. I'd love to see a flying frog, similar to how Musharna floats while surrounded by pink mist. I can imagine Froakie growing a little overweight if that does happen, preferring to use their powers rather than move around on their own. They'll be so cuddly and adorable! ♥

                              Hmm could Froakie evolve into a defensive Pokemon? Than again Swampert is said to be as fast as a jet ski and it's not all that fast...but it is quite strong like it's RS entry says (the part with the boulder).

                              You know, I think it would be interesting if Froakie would evolve to be a more defensive starter. Could bring about some good results (even though I personally prefer offensive Pokemon). Honestly, it look like a more physical water type, though hopefully it's able o be a Pokemon that's able to utilize both attack and special attack interchangeably.

                                I too hope it'll be a mix attacker. Fennekin looks like it'll be a special attacker unlike Tepig which looked more physical to me upon it's reveal. Now Chespin may be defensive...or maybe a mighty glacier of sorts? In other words it has High Attack and Defenses but horrible speed.

                                I could definitely see Chespin just kind of being a slow attacker. At the same time I could also just see it evolving into a glass cannon type Pokémon. I just don't picture it as a purely defensive Pokémon personally. Honestly, I don't really picture any of the Pokémon being a defensive type at all. They all kind of just seem like attackers of some sort.

                                  Hoping not. Like others, I'd prefer if Froakie was the speedy one this time 'round too many bulky water types as it is.

                                    Well Froakie was a huge disappointment with his features and his name.

                                    If I had to pick one for my starter, it would most likely be Chespin. I think mainly about how they'll look when they're fully evolved. Otherwise Fennekin is pretty cute but I don't usually pick fire-types for my starting pokemon.

                                    I will choose for good once I see how they all turn out. After all, we have until October to decide, right?

                                    Gotta agree with this. For myself, I've learned not to really complain much about the starter types, they don't tend to really look bad (well at least, to me!). That and, seeing as I'm a grass-type fanatic, as long as the grass-type starter looks either cute or badass, everything is okay in my book. :x
