They are fan-made. So far nothing new (except for the legendaries' names) has been revealed since the original announcement.

    So, at first I was 100% convinced these were absolute and utter Fakemon when I first saw them.

    When I saw the trailer, and learned they were official...

    Anyway, they aren't the worse trio of starters. That dishonor is still held by Generation 1's trio, at least in my opinion. Froakie is sort of starting to grow on me, and Fennekin reminds me of Renamon like somebody above said, which I adore! I'm probably going to be choosing Fennekin and nicknaming it Renamon.

    Chespin, on the other hand... for the sake of avoiding seeming pessimistic, because I really am excited for Generation VI and I don't want to make it seem like I'm hating, I'll keep my opinions on it to myself. But, I was incredibly surprised when the public generally favored Chespin over Froakie.

    ...Also, I never get why people have it engraved in their heads that Dark/Fighting/Psychic is a "type triangle" comparable to Fire/Grass/Water. Dark is immune to Psychic; that's not fair! According to a quick Google search, here are supposedly fair type triangles:

    Grass, Poison, Ground
    Rock, Bug, Grass
    Ground, Fire, Ice
    Ground, Steel, Ice
    Flying, Fighting, Rock
    Ice, Flying, Fighting
    Rock, Fire, Steel
    Rock, Ice, Ground
    Rock, Ice, Grass
    Rock, Fire, Grass
    Rock, Flying, Grass
    Ground, Fire, Grass

    A lot of them have Grass, but this just here to give an idea!

      Oh wow...Just read a comment on Pokejungle that has me questioning this now. What if the attack Fennekin used wasn't psychic? Someone said they thought it was Confuse Ray. So Fennekin could be part ghost if we continue with that speculation.

      Though I still say Pure fire.

        I think this might be the first time where the English Names are cooler than the Japanese Names

        Confuse Ray is one of those moves that isn't really married to Pokemon of a specific type, so who knows.

              No, they did Fire/Fighting already.

              Being a fox Pokemon, it could be a ghost type like how Ninetails was supposed to be, with the whole curse and living 1,000 years thing. Also, it would be inspired by the Kyuubi and other fox myths. Like naruto

                  That's what I was talking about.

                  I am not a fan of Ghost types. I would be very sad if it becomes a subtype of a starter, especially a starter I find to my liking.

                    It doesn't have to be PERFECT to be fair.

                    For example, if they were Grass / Dark VS Fire / Psychic... Fire still has an advantage over grass, so it doesn't mean that Fennekin couldn't attack Chespin effectively.

                    I personally think it would be amazing if they had this dual-typing because it would mean that your rival is more evenly matched with you.

                      I'm definitely gonna choose Fennekin when I first get the games, and then, depending on how the other twos' evolutions turn out, it's a tie between Froakie and Chespin for when I play the other game. However, I'm currently leaning toward Froakie~

                      Regardless, they're all pretty cute (Fennekin especially) and I really hope their evos. are awesome! ;~;

                          Speaking of which, it looks as if Fennekin is based off of a Fennec fox. (See the similarities between the names?) It has large ears like them, and has colour similarities.

                          I really like the new starters, honestly. They have pretty good designs. I plan on chosing Chespin, because I haven't chosen the grass starter in a while.
                          I have one question, though.
                          What is Chespin? I mean, what EXACTLY is it? I can't tell. ._.

                                Chespin looks very similar to Oshawatt (Which I hate), I'll just have to wait to see what the final form looks like. Same goes for Froakie, if the final evolution looks amazingly awesome, I shall pick Froakie. Otherwise, Fennekin is my choice, it's a beauty, reminds me of a more female and seductive version of Vulpix. I love foxes!

                                  It looks to me like a mole with a grassy hat. Or somesuch. Hence why Grass/Ground was my type guess for subtyping in the future evolution(s). Remember Excadrill? Evolved from a mole covered in armor, Ground/Steel.

                                  It's possible the first half of Chespin's Japanese name (Harimaron) comes from the Japanese word for hedgehog (Harinezumi), so I'd say it could be that. However, it doesn't really look like one to me, but maybe it'll evolve into a hedgehog-like Pokemon? That'd make more grassy hedgehogs, but hey, I'm not complaining; hedgehogs are awesome :3b

                                  As for the other two, I doubt Fennekin will turn into a kyuubi since we've already got Ninetales, though I think there are other mythical fox youkai out there so maybe it can be one of those? As for Froakie, I honestly have no idea XD; Just something that doesn't look like Seismitoad ><;

                                  IF Chespin ends up looking somewhat like that I'm definitely picking cause that looks badass.

                                  Or if it looks like this one.

                                  The fakemon Fennekin evo looks sweet too and if these were real I could end up having a hard time choosing again. XD

                                  The more I look at Chespin the better it looks. A grass starter has never looked this cute.
