Chespin also has good potential for moves. In fact I see one of its exclusive moves being something to do with cracking nuts tbh.

If I could choose right now, I'd go with Froakie. I don't normally like frog Pokémon, but it looks so much cooler than the grass type. Fennekin is so overrated

    Froakie's my least favorite tbh...hope it gets a cool evolution like the water starters since gen 3 have gotten.

    Something comes to mind there. What if the starters final lines evolved via Water Stone, Fire Stone, Leaf Stone, etc? I mean it's unlikely but I think that'd fit in with a possible DNA theme.

      That'll be interesting... it could potentially mean getting the final evolutions early or late depending on where one gets the stone, and if they didn't already use it on another...
      Speaking about it I wonder what levels they'll evolve...I'm sort of hoping they push up the level of evolution this time for both evolution stages like they evolve into their second stage at lv. 20 or 21, and third stage at lv. 40.

      I see Chespin becoming a speedy version of Torterra.

            I'm not a big fan of Fennekin. I've never really liked fire types. When I played my first pokemon game, I liked Treecko the best and, since then, I've always chosen the grass starter. Grass became my favorite type. Since Fire is my always rivals pokemon, I started disliking them.

            Speaking of rivals always having the type that's good against yours, wouldn't it be nice if the rival's pokemon was randomly decided after you picked yours?

            I'm not sure if that would be likely, but I do hope that they evolve by some other means than the traditional 'level-up'. Even if it is increasing their happiness level or bringing them to a specific location, I wish they would change it up for once.

            Specific location... maybe there's like a point, where after beating a certain gym leader your starter could evolve? Maybe it could relate to genetics by having something programmed inside them to evolve after a certain achievement. Idk that might overcomplicate things tho.

              Big fan of all 3, although Chespin looks a bit... busy. It's basically a cross between Petilil (the green bit), Emolga (face) and Sandshrew (lower body). Then again Fennekin is pretty much Zorua mixed with Ninetales, but at least Zorua and Ninetales mix more naturally.

              I really like Fennekin and Froakin actually, both nice simple designs done well. Froakin could probably do without the white blobs on his nose though, much like Sylveon could really lose the bow tie, but that's another matter.

                  This is what I thought. I would have never even thought that it could be a mustache o.o

                  But I like all three of the starters. But my favorite is Fennkin because it is an adorable fox! <3

                      I actually wouldn't like that, the rivals always pick the starter that is good against yours because this forces the player to use some strategy, i.e. capture new pokemon that are good against your rival, or learn new moves that are good against your rivals Pokemon. And besides, there's no fun if it's too easy!

                      Possible, but very limiting, in a sense? I suppose it depends on which point in the game that you would get these items, in which I assume it wouldn't be very far (or hopefully not that far, anyway). But this would be an interesting route to take for the starter evos!

                          I'm pretty sure I'll choose Chespin It's a little difficult since I like both water & grass types but Chespin interests me more than the other two.

                          Because they're both foxes :3 imo it looks closer to Vulpix of the two though, and it's probably where Fennekin's evolution will head.

                            I'll go with Fennekin all the way though I can change my mind if I see those Evo's. :3

                            I don't know how I would feel if they changed the evolution formula for the starters. Adjusting the levels is one thing, but over complicating it or making it too specific would be an unnecessary change in my opinion. The starters, while considered rare and special, aren't supposed to be these overly complex Pokémon. They're supposed to be, in a sense, basic.

                            Plus, if current patterns remain, then if one were to evolve their starter too soon with an evolutionary stone, then they may miss out on some pretty important moves learned at their prior stage.

                              i don't why, but every time i think about how every starter final evolution will, i most of the time see froaki's as a big wise and fat frogs like those in naruto.
                              i also saw a few fan made froaki's final evolution the same way.
                              what do you think about it if it will turn out this way?

                              I guess if it turned out that way I wouldn't be too surprised, although something interesting is if what if Froakie's final evolution is down on all fours, as opposed to be standing, as we'd likely suspect. I mean I'm sure there's frogs like that...?

                                I always imagined it looking somewhat like a combination of Swampert and Seismitoad. .__.
