      between the new photos that has benn posted there was a chespin with his move set at level 5, he had a vine whip. does this mean that the starters will get a stab move at the start? it nice change, but in that case i hope the first rival battle won't be immedately after we get the starter.

      Not necessarily. The preview screenshots of the games have been known to show things so that we have a look at what is new, but don't stay the same in the games. If anything, it might just mean that they were showcasing that Vine Whip got a boost in PP from what is has been in the games, as well as that it is part of its moveset. It's not guaranteed that it will actually learn it at that level when the games themselves come out.

        I really prefer Fennekin but I'm afraid to stop my water-starter tradition.

        I hope they don't get a STAB move at Lv5, would make the Rival battle pretty impossbile.
        I do love though that Chespin will know Rollout, great against Flying, Bug, Fire AND Ice
        I might just pick my least favorite type as a starter this time :D

          well, monsieur leaker said that everything he said was fake, but i think one thing he said will be true.
          when he was ask how the starters final evolution will look he said that froakie will be water/dark ninja. not only that this a cool idea i actualy see this happaning.
          what do you think about this idea

            I'm picking Chespin, unless the rumors of Froakie becoming a ninja frog or a dark frog are accurate in which case I'm getting the frog... I don't know why everyone loves Fennekin so much... I think its design is the worse by far...

                I think Fennekin's final evolution may be a reference to france. Piplup and Snivy's final evolutions had a french theme going on with their origins so maybe final Fennekin will too to complete the elemental french starter triangle. Of course though we never got a flightless bird grass starter so we may not get our french fire starter...yet Fennekin carries itself in that stereotypical french fashion...

                  I like Froakie's design the most and it's been a while since I last picked a water starter so I know what I'm gonna be using.

                      Fennekin is based on Fennec Fox who are mostly in Sahara of North Africa, some parts of North Africa were a french colony.

                        Someone from gamefreak, forget who said that the inspiration for Serperior was French.
                        Also this part of it's origins from bulbapedia agrees " It and its pre-evolutions were confirmed to have been inspired from European, specifically French, royalty. The fact that Serperior amplifies sunlight in its body, as stated in its Pokédex entry, may be an allusion to King Louis XIV, a famous French king who referred to himself as the "Sun King". Serperior's white face also alludes to the skin whitening fashion, mostly used by the European aristocracy in the 17th century."

                        And we all know Piplup's line was based on Napoleon, and if Snivy's was Louis XIV, I wonder which French figure will be the basis of Fennekin's final evolution, I can only think of Charlemagne aka Charles I, emperor of the first western empire since the fall of the Western Roman Empire.

                          I was positively surprised with the new starters! After seeing the 5th gen, I expected all next pokemon generation to be as bad or even worse. However, the 6th gen looks promising!

                          All three starters look good! Personally I prefer Fennekin, which is extremely cute (it will depend though on its evolutions as well). I also like the idea of Chespin, which is different to all grass-type starters we've seen so far. About Froakie, I don't like it at all (especially its eyes give me the creeps, Politoed is far better), but I can understand that they need diversity in the starters, in order to meet the different tastes of the audience.

                            It would be nice if the water starter was the fastest this time around. Hopefully it will happen cause does Froakie looks pretty fast and agile *fingers crossed*

                            I think the only way I wouldn't choose Fennekin would be if it ended up being Fire/Fighting or I was really fond of Chespins final evolution and typing combination, not really a Froakie fan. Although I'd be pretty happy if Fennekin ended up to be Fire/Psychic.

                              You know that rumor of Froakie being a ninja seems to be a possible reality as it's movement in the trailer makes me think of a ninja, sure it's probably the moves it's using causing that effect but still.
                              I hope that all three starters are fast this time, it seems like every generation there's two slow ones and one fast one, or one slow, one decent, and one fast.

                              Froakie being the fastest around would be pretty nice, he does give off that vibe.
                              Maybe being a dark type would be fitting for a ninja?

                                I hope that all three starters are fast this time, it seems like every generation there's two slow ones and one fast one, or one slow, one decent, and one fast.
                                I think Chespin will focus on hp/defense, Fennekin on special attack/special defense, and Froakie on attack/speed. I hope they all have decent other stats though, I don't think any will be too speed deficient.

                                That rumor was sadly debunked already...



                                EDIT: I just realized my choice order aligns evenly... Squirtle, Cyndaquil, Treecko, Piplup, Tepig, and now Chespin... Two of each type... All in Water-Fire-Grass order...

                                I've been so absent from this lately lol.

                                In my opinion, as far as the starters' stats should look like, I think Chespin will probably be the slowest of the bunch (due to that shelled part on its head) and would focus on defensive stats and physical Attack, Fennekin sorta screams a Special Attacker while I think Froakie will have mixed offenses and be the fastest of the trio.

                                I'm also hoping that they have decent stats all around so I don't find any particularly disappointing.

                                  Yeah Fennekin looks special, and Froakie looks physical. I guess Chespin could be a mix defender...

                                  If anything I'd see a ninja being a Fighting type. And it sort of seems to mesh with Froakie pretty well. Having another Water/Fighting type other than Poliwrath would be pretty awesome too. Especially if Froakie is more of a high attack/speed glass cannon sort of thing whereas Poliwrath is much more of a bulky attacker.

                                    Here is some concept art I drew up. I'm no pro artist but I did my best


                                    The idea here is

                                    Well...

                                    Grass > Water > Fire > Grass, you know that three way thing with the starters right?

                                    Well now we would have

                                    Croaked (Water/Ghost)

                                    He would be absolutely SCREWED vs. Chespike (Grass/Dark)

                                    Chespike would be absolutely screwed vs. Fennekick (Fire/Fighting)

                                    & Finally to complete the circle, Fennekick is indeed screwed if put againt Croaked (Again, Water/Ghost)

                                    So the theme here is to give all the starters a second type, yet for them to all have that same idea going on where no matter which one you pick each is strong against 1, weak to the other. Except now more than ever!

                                    If anyone is a better artist than me and wants to, feel free to take these ideas & concepts and then make an enhanced/tweaked version of the same things. I'd actually like to see someone who draws better than I do make them look really great

                                    What do you guys think?

                                      Y U do dis?

                                      If Fennekin turns into a Fire/Fighting yet again, people will literally pull a gun on GameFreak employees at this point...

                                        Since at least one starter get's only one type even when it evolves I am not so sure all of the evolutions will have dual types like you drawn. I only liked your Chespike. Looks like a real Boss. And just like Lyca said we should pray for a fire type starter not to become a Fighting type again when it evolves
