    Definitely Froakie. I'm hoping he evolves into Water/Fighting. Chespin is okay, too.

    Well I do admit that's an interesting typing, but Fennekin's line will mostly be part-Fire since each starter retains their Grass, Fire or Water type throughout its evolution line, but some evolutions can give the starter a second type. The fact Fennekin has been confirmed to learn both Psychic and Psybeam has certainly made me know it will probably become part-Psychic when it evolves.

      A Fire/Psychic starter, that would be amazing. I'm still sticking with my water pokes though and will get Froakie. I'm sure its evolutions will not disappoint (none of the water finals have in the past). I hope it's Water/Fighting too, and could totally see that being the case given the design. But it's a frog so Water/Poison perhaps could be a less preferable option.

      Think Final Evolutions:
      Fennekin: Fire/Psyhic
      Froakie: Water/Fighting or Water/Poison
      Chespin: Grass/???

        The fire/psychic typing will make Fennekin a beast. It also has my favorite design of the three. Chespin is okay as well, however Froakie is pretty awful. Mudkip was the last decent looking water starter, in my opinion that is.

          Ghost/Psychic or Fire/Psychic doesn't really matter to me. As long it's going in one of these two type's direction. If it's going to be a Pure Fire-type or Fire/Normal that'll dissapoint me, then it will be no different than Ninetails.

            Not sure if it's been mentioned yet, but it looks to me like the third line on Fennekin's forehead is a closed third eye, further enforcing the fire/psychic typing. Froakie does look like he'll be water/fighting because of the ninja throwing bubbles, so will that leave Chespin as a grass/dark?
            If this is the case, then each starter will have a typing advantage and disadvantage against the other two.

              I'd rather have its evolutions be pure Fire than Fire/Fighting.

                As of now right, I like Froakie the most because he is a Frog and a Water type.

                  I think I'm the only person who is thinking froakie might become a water/flying type. I just think his back looks like clouds so it would make sense. I know that leaves him a 4x weakness but the fluffy white back leaves me wondering. They could be bubbles or foam but I don't know. Fennekin being fire/psychic would be cool. I have no idea on chespin. His design is adorable but confusing on possible types.

                        As long as Chespin doesn't get Grass/Dark and Fennekin Fire/Fighting I'll be happy. Grass/Dark will hinder Chespin greatly in competitive play, giving it a additional weakness to fighting and a 4x weakness to Bug, which id not helpful when U-Turn is so common. I think Fire/Fighting was a great concept with Blaziken, my personal favourite starter evo, but it's gotten old after 3 generations. Don't really mind about Froakie, can't think of any typings I wouldn't be happy with for him.

                        I'm going to get a Fennikin and name it after the Firefox browser. XD

                        I'm someone who goes after the grass-type starters first. My first impression of Chespin was...not so well. To me it looks like a tanned Dewott in a Snivy costume. I'm still trying to figure out why it has some kind of hat on its head. Or whatever it is. As I am posting this, it is starting to grow on me. It's typical at first, but I'll give it time.

                        Fennekin is just simply ADORABLE. I like foxes, and Fennekin might just beat out my other favorite fox Pokemon Ninetales & Vulpix. I'm really curious about this Pokemon's later evolutions. I hope it's majestic, and I REALLY hope it doesn't turn out to be a fire-fighting starter, or I will be disappoint.

                        I'm not a fan of Froakie, so I'll be staying away from that Pokemon. It's a huge disapointment from last generation when we had Oshawott. I hope this Pokemon has a good evolution line, then we'll talk. :P
                        I posted that in my alt but I want to say that my opinion changed. I'm gonna go for Chespin this time. Even though we *still* haven't found out what their evolutions are, I still want a grass-type starter on my team. Chespin looks so badass and you gotta adore its cuteness it has!

                        Reason why I decided to change my mind was because well..most peeps are going to name their Fennekin the "Firefox" and I'm one of them, so I think I'll just opt-out. xD

                        I have this gut feeling Chespin's evos might get grass/fighting but idk. Grass/Dark sounds like a pretty cool combo imo.

                          Well we have CoroCoro leaking just before the airing of Pokémon Smash, so if CoroCoro covers the Starter Evolutions prior to the Smash episode then I'm certain Smash will cover what CoroCoro revealed but in further detail with a couple of gameplay trailers.

                            Don't know if anyone has mentioned this but, there is a somewhat pattern going on with the starters. Gen 4 had Empoleon, which quite obviously is designed after Napoleon Bonaparte. Gen 5 came along and we got Serperior, a starter, that shares some similarities with Louis XVI(The Sun King). Both of these have shared similarities with Historical French leaders. This could mean Fennekin follows this trend(Fire is the only starter that hasn't been covered). I'm not too knowledgeable on French Monarchs, so is there any French Queen, that you feel could inspire Fennekin?

                                I'm gonna cheat by saying that I'll take one, and ask the others to make babies of the starters I don't have and trade them these ones

                                Honestly though I'll take the grass/dark (if it truly is dark in later evolutions) ... I always have a soft spots for dark ones

                                As long as its an offensive typing that isn't Grass/Dark, I'm okay with it. Grass/Dark just seems...too fragile of a type, I suppose. Grass/Fighting would be better, Grass/Rock would be even better than that. n_n

                                I would really like Chespin to be Grass/Dark (like Sceptile should have been imo) and if it is, I would pick it. I usually go with fire starters but Fennekin doesn't appeal to me in the same way that most fire starters do, for some reason. It looks too fragile I guess :3 Froakie might be my favorite out of the unevolved starters in terms of design, but I usually don't pick water starters since there are so many other interesting water pokémon to have on my team. So Chespin, if its evolutions are up to par with expectations ;)

                                  Sceptile came off as more Grass/Dragon to me xD

                                  I'll like Chespin to be Grass/Rock as it's a better combo imo.

                                      After seeing how ugly Chespin's evo is, I think I'll go with Froakie.
