    Is it just me, or does Chespin look like a re-textured Oshawott/Dewott?

      I really love Chespin and Fennekin. Froakie is already starting to grow on me but it's my least favorite.

      I think Chespin is going to be my first pick when the games come out. ^_^

        My favorite starter is the Fire-type, Fennekin. I really like it's design, and I like foxes. It's like a mix of Vulpix and Zorua. It's the first time that the Fire starter is my favorite since Charmander in Gen 1. I think the Water-type frog is just ok looking, but I do like it. However, I don't like the Grass-type. I think it looks boring, and looks like a Pokémon that would be catchable early in the game, like Patrat, ect. Fennekin might be my favorite Fire-type starter of any generation.

          I actually like them all a lot, but I'm going to use Fennekin for my first walkthrough. On my other game, Froakie, who I think is quite adorable. I'll trade for a Chespin as well, just so I can have all three.

            I'm sure this has been said, but.
            Fire/psychic, grass/fighting, water/dark. Who's with me? I mean, fennekin is almost guaranteed to be Fire/Psychic, and there's a LOT of people saying chespin will be grass/fighting. So, if we get a water/dark as well, they keep all their typed advances over each other in both main and secondary typing, it would also be pretty interesting to see a water/dark pokemon.

              I'll wait to choose until I get to see their final evolutions.

                Uhh... Sharpedo?

                In all seriousness, knowing I'd be tempted by the fire starter, I do hope it won't evolve into a Fire/Fighting type yet again.

                  I'm still indifferent about which starter to choose - maybe Froakie or Fennekin. I'll wait to see Froakie's final evolution before I make a decision on who to choose. The water type is my preferred choice.

                  I love the designs of them, but they're really starting to resemble Neopets.

                    If Fennekin turns out to be a Fire/Psychic, I will love GameFreak forever

                    BTW I love how the little fire fox thing looks. Froakie is meh..only time where I don't really care for the water starter..and Chespin looks okay.

                      I love Froakie, he looks like a little conductor or something with his wig and glasses and gloves.

                        I bet you more than anything that...

                        Chespin ends up being Grass/Ground

                        Fennekin ends up as Fire/Psychic (uses psychic attack in teaser?)

                        Froakie ends up as Water/Flying (because of the cloud-like features on the body; similar to Altaria)

                          Why Grass/Ground for Chespin? The trailer made it look like it was using Night Slash on the Golurk, making it seem as if its going to be a Grass/Dark type (Shiftry, anyone?). And yeah I can see it being Psychic in the trailer...it could be some other new move though, we never know. It's just Fire/Psychic seems a bit OP, so for starter Pokemon I doubt they'll do that.

                          If Froakie is a Water/Flying, I'll probably never choose it lol.

                            Got to say, this roster of starters appeals more than last generations; but that's just my opinion.^^

                            I would have to choose Fennekin. The design is awesome and it appears to have ended the fire/fighting trend for the last three generations.

                                I can see Chespin being Grass/Dark now that you have pointed that out.

                                I just really hope the final evolutions look as good as these pre-evolution forms.

                                In terms of design, Fennekin has the best one, with Chespin following close. I like Froakie simply because it's the Water starter.

                                I actually love them all. Chespin is adorable, even though it has a strange reptile tail, and fennekin looks like a smug little fire zorua. And Froakie, who I thought was really weird at first actually seems kind of awesome. It looks adorable imo!

                                I'm starting to actually like Froakie after the initial shock wore off, jeez.

                                Fennekin. I need Fennekin in my life as soon as possible. I love it so much. ;w; I completely forgot about Vulpix, Ninetales, and Flareon being Fire-type foxes during my initial freak out but shhhh don't tell anyone. >__>

                                I really like Chespin too, and Froakie... Well, I don't like to hate any Pokémon because I think they're all cool and unique, and Froakie is pretty neat, but I don't necessarily care for it. ._____.

                                  In all seriousness, knowing I'd be tempted by the fire starter, I do hope it won't evolve into a Fire/Fighting type yet again.
                                  Sharpedo line, and crawdaunt are the only water/dark pokemon, while its not exactly the least common typing its not exactly common place either.

                                  I don't know, I'm not a big fan of Froakie, so that combined with the fact I've been using a lot of Water starters lately means I probably won't pick it. While I do like Fennekin, a Fire-type fox reminds me of Vulpix/Ninetales right away. So based on all that, I'll probably take Chespin as my starter (but their evolutions may change my mind).

                                    I'd like to see how they all evolve but I can live with these designs. (:

                                    Like most everyone here, Fennekin is my favorite.

                                    I'm curious to see if they become dual type when they evolve and what their stat spread will be.

                                      Oh man, I actually really like all three of them. I honestly don't know which one I'd choose since I think they're all great. It's my favourite set of starters since Kanto and Johto. For me it's a tough choice between Froakie and Fennekin. Chespin is my least favourite, but I still like him a lot.

                                      I'll have to wait and see what the evolved forms are like before deciding.

                                      All the base designs are usually quite good, these being no exception, but I'm still a bit wary of what their final form will look like.

                                      ...The fire and grass ones are so cute! Although they remind me of other Pokemon. I feel like Nintendo is running out of ideas.
