And now we just have to wait for the secondary types (if any) to be announced... Fennekin = Fire/Fighting ;;

    Spoiler:

    Fairly certain this is fake, but if Fennekin's evo turns out anything like this, I could care less if it was Fire/Fighting.

    I'm kind of hoping the starter evos all turn out to be pure types. Call me boring, but for some reason I prefer single-typed starters.

      I'm pretty sure that would have to be fake. I really hope that's not the evolution. Although, there are some qualities I'd like to take from that and put into Fennekin's line. For one, I do want Fennekin to turn bipedal at some point. I'd also like those glove-like features on its paws. They my seem a little indicative of fighting, but I don't think they scream fighting type.

      I'll go with Fennekin because i've always chosen fire types and their designs always look the best imo. Although Froakie almost tied me over but i just really want to use that fire fox thingo !

        Serebii is reporting ALL starters are PURE TYPES!

        Fennecin does NOT need Boxing Gloves!

        I'll definitely choose the Fire Fox Fennekin! I fell in love with it the second I laid my eyes on it. I'll try out Froakie and perhaps Chespin as well. I don't usually use Grass-types in my teams, but I'm going to be open-minded this time round and try out this new rodent-like Pokemon. Chespin, please surprise me. :)

          Well, their first stages at least. They did not say specifically that they would be pure types in the last stage. As far as I know, bulbasaur is the only one with two types in his first stage.
          I'd like them to be Fire/Psychic (quadruped please), Grass/Dark, Water Fighting. This way, each starter would have an advantage against the other two.

            Think chespin's gonna be another Oshawott. Funny looking but adorable when in a certain art style. Froakie's just weird....

              Fennekin looks pretty cool, he would be my starter pick for sure

                This is exactly what I have been hoping for for so long. I really want it to happen this way, because there has never been a quadruped fire starter! And I reeeally hope Chespin's evolution is bipedal!

                  Looking at the starters I'm thinking about picking Fennekin, however if Chespin's final form is going to be a Grass/Dark type (there's a rumor going around) then i'm picking Chespin. Froakie just doesn't look that cool to me, it's strange though I usually go for the Water or Grass starter. xP (With the exception of Gen II...)

                    I'm actually hoping that it doesn't turn out that way. Making Fennekin into a Fire/Psychic quadruped fox would make it a little to similar to Ninetales for my taste. I know Ninetales isn't actually part Psychic, but it has demonstrated psychic abilities. If it were going to be a "subtype trio" of sorts, I'd like it to be Fire/Rock (with an Egyptian Sphinx theme), Grass/Fighting (with a Robin Hood theme), and Water/Flying (with a balloon frog theme)

                      I consider myself as an emotionless guy most of the time..

                      But just one look at Fennekin that thing is too adorable not to pick... definitely starting with Fennekin...

                        I've voted for Fennekin. I usually pick Water-types for my starters, but Fennekin already looks very attractive. (And hey, I wonder if it will learn Attract by level up! We'll have to wait and see...)

                          I always seem to like the least liked starter.

                          If possible I would really like to get both Froakie and Chespin. Not a big fan of generic fox pokemon.

                            Since Gen III, all my starters have been the water type. I'm not planning to change that anytime soon. Mudkip > Squirtle > Oshawott > Piplup > Totodile > Froakie

                              If that were true, then this will be a bad thing, because that was part of the main reasons why Johto's starters were inferior, compared to the other starters, and on-par with Unova's starters.

                                Umm, every starter except Bulbasaur has been pure type... so I don't really understand how that makes sense...

                                  The Johto starters were still mono types even in their full evolved forms, which is what Serebii has confirmed about the newest starters.

                                    We don't know that. For all we know, they could simply be reporting that the Basic stages are all mono-types.

                                    I'm holding out hope that the three will evolve into a Grass/Dark, Fire/Psychic, and Water/Fighting triad, but Froakie's design leads me to believe it may evolve into a Water/Flying type due to the cloud-like collar around its neck.

                                      Chespin could become Grass/Ground or Grass/Dark
                                      Fennekin could be pure Fire or Fire/Psychic
                                      Froakie could be Water/Flying, Water/Ice, Water or Water/Fighting

                                      Oh the possibilities.

                                        Well...being one of the first with the Water/Flying possibility, I still want to keep that hope up, despite the x4 Electric issue. Though, the "cloud" are bubbles. Its similar to how some frogs carry their eggs in a sack on their backs. So Froakie can be pure water all the way through since the stuff on it have been stated to be bubbles.

                                        Also....Watch they give Fennekin a high physical stat and hardly any physical Fire moves if they make it part psychic. They have to troll us one way or another XD

                                        Make a pokemon that many fans love. Mess it up in the most unholy of ways.

                                          While I don't really check upon this Serebii site you speak of, I read the same thing on Pokebeach and it stated that the starters themselves (not their evolutions) are all pure type. We know this because it has been confirmed on the official Pokemon X & Y website—unless Serebii has some magical official source nobody has heard of, they do not know anything about the starter's evolutions.

                                          I may be completely wrong, and Serebii somehow does know information about the starters' evolutions, but I'm a little skeptical.

                                          EDIT: Is this what you're referring to?

                                          Nintendo has sent out some new details regarding Pokémon X & Y. Specifically, it has confirmed that the types of Chespin, Fennekin and Froakie will be pure Grass, Fire and Water respectively. In addition to that, they have released six direct feed screenshots of the Pokémon in battle, which have been added to our screenshot page. Click the image to go to our page
                                          From here?

                                          If this is what you're referring to, then I most definitely don't see any references to the starters' evolved forms, or any magical official source with which to confirm such information.

                                          I really hope the theory that Froakie is based off of a burglar is true and that the final form is Water/Dark - I would much prefer that to Water/Flying.
