On that note though, I do somewhat wonder how believable the evolutions will be, and how we'll get told them. Will we get fan outrage and leaked at the last minute again??

    Chespin or Fennekin. I always picked the water type starter but this frog is strange.

      Fennekin, simply because I like foxes. Even though I think the others look slighty better, I hope Fennekin is going to have some awesome evolutions. If they turn out ugly, my second choice would be Chespin.

      It happens just about every generation. There's just about no doubt it'll happen again.

      See idk about that. given how long we've waited for information NOW, the evolutions could come soon, or at least in a few months before so people have full time to prepare for which one they want.

        Froakie is cute tho! It sounds like its croaking kinda so it's okay as a name imo given it relates to the mon.

        No matter what, as Derk said, people will outrage about the evolutions of the starters. It doesn't matter how believable some people find them (or even if they were believable from an objective standpoint as well), it is just going to happen. It's pretty much impossible to please everyone.

          I just hope the evolutions look cool and that they are useful competitively...many starters sadly don't seem to be .

            I have a feeling that Fennekin will be a Fire/Psychic type when it will be fully evolved. I dont think it will be Fire/Fighting. I think Froakie will be Water/Fighting.

              As it stands right now, based on nothing but looking at them in their unevolved forms, I guess Chespin

              But my decision is extremely subject to change, depending on what they look like evolved, how their stats are like, what their multi-typing is like if they have multi-types at all, their abilities, etc, etc, etc

                  I dont know whats the problem with some pokémon fanboys that says that the 5th and 6th gens are bad generations, i think they're awesome

                  Fennekin for the win, I have always picked the fire starter for my first playthrough of a game.

                    I picked Froakie because I always use the Water type starter for my first playthrough. Honestly speaking, I'm rather disappointed by its appearance and now I'm crossing my fingers and hoping it'll look better when it evolves.

                    Chespin and Fennekin looks good to me, though. Seems like the majority of users will go with the fire fox this time round.

                        I really hope that Fennekin's evo-line maintains the graceful looks. I know it has been discussed whether or not it ends up on all fours or on its rear legs in its final stage, but the latter option would be a big disappointment, to me at least. I am crossing my fingers for a Ninetales look as opposed to completely changing its appearance for something more obviously fearsome.

                          I mean, what about Speed Boost Blazikens or Chlorophyll Venusaurs?

                          Those weren't at 1st in their own generations but maybe they'll give us alternate better abilities off the bat this time?

                            The starters' abilities have always been Torrent, Overgrow, and Blaze. That won't change unless they change the beginning type.

                            Speed Boost and Chlorophyll are Dream world exclusive (hidden) No Starter at the start of the game can have them.

                            We know their abilities already.

                            We also don't know if hidden abilities will transfer into the new games. We don't know if anything to hand them out or a new dream world/dream world alternative will be made for X and Y so assume there are no hidden abilities in X and Y. You're left with the basic abilities which have always been exclusively Overgrow for Grass, Blaze for Fire, and Torrent for Water.

                            Seconding the abilities being stuck as Blaze, Overgrow, and Torrent. It wouldn't make sense to NOT have them honestly.

                            I don't want those abilities in particular, I'd rather if they got creative with these starters since those abilities are sooo overused :(

                              I'll have to go with Chespin, it looks the coolest in my opinion.

                                  Froakie seems fine to me. I have a feeling that I may end up picking him and having my favorite chespin as a second. Fenniken is to picked right now making it less appetizing. Its not bad but thousand will be choosing it. But as of right now Chespin Baby. I have a feel that this one will feel like Maganium. Tanky and Strong.
