    I love them all but I want every Pokémon in my first run to be fire-type, and so I'll be choosing Fennekin and Charmander.

Froakie's definitely going to be the speedster this gen with mixed attacking stats, it's time that we had a fast Water starter.

      The middle evos are further showing my theory could be true.
      I have the same theory. though I do see Fennekin being quite fast but not as fast as I see Froakie being. So Fennekin may end up like Alakazam...a fragile special sweeper...

        All three look badass! I'll probably manage to trade for the other two, but until I do, I started with fire starters, I'll keep it going with fire starters. Plus it's bloody adorable! Fennekin is where I'm going.

          Although I always choose water type pokemon after seeing the evolutions I don't think that they are that great. But after seeing Chespin's evolution Quilladin's ability to learn Aerial Ace, Mud Shot, and Roll Out it's a great way to match up with fire moves and attacks.

            I am MOST curious to see what Chespin becomes. And Grass has more weaknesses, I like to challenge myself in pokemon.

                Same as you Yambo, but ao contraire, im certain about charmander, to me, that charizard mega evolution is a must have, im undecided on the new guys, im inclined to froakie so far...
                im not getting fennekin because i want to catch a ninetales with drought and that psychic attack that i forgot the name, wich would be redundant with fennekin on the team, considering the speculations are correct.
                sorry for my bad english btw.

                  the only starter whose final evolution is the most unclear is definitely chespin/quilladin and i bet it would be the most surprising and awesome when it is finally revealed.

                  my head goes for the seemingly solid froakie but heart goes to chespin

                      I agree, I think Chespin's final evolution will be the most different of the three when compared to it's past evolutions.

                      Yeah, not to mention they can easily pull a Samurott again. :p I do have a feeling that Chespin's final evolution will look epic, and if it looks similar to some of the fan art I've seen (which, while made before-hand, shares similarities with Quilladin even now), then yeah, there are good things ahead. :p

                      As long as they don't somehow make the last evolution for Froakie look terrible, I'm happy.

                      I like how so many people are pumped for Quilladin's next evo, and I can't blame them. Yes, Quilladin's design is odd, but I'm fairly confident that its evolution would be badass. @[email protected]

                        so its confirmed to be pretty much knight/mage/rogue for the starters

                        all the more better for chespin :D

                            Chespin's mid evolution looks terrible to me but at the same time looks like it could become something good. If there's a drastic jump as there was from Charmeleon > Charizard, Wartortle > Blastoise or Grotle > Torterra we could be in for a treat. I just hope it's offensive rather than fat and bulky, it loses it's plumpness and doesn't look goofy.

                            I was kind of disappointed to see Fennekin go to 2 leg standing, it reminds me of a witch or fairy now which I don't like. I much preferred the idea that it was going to be some sort of elegant but powerful fox, the first fire starter to end up standing permanently on all fours.

                            Froakie's evolution is just average, it kind of reminds of Mudkip though but I hope it doesn't end up anything like Swampert because that thing used to freak me out on PBR. It's quite slender which is good, I hope it ends up looking like a ninja toad

                            But it won't...

                            Mid evolutions of starters are always the worst, to put the new ones in a list among others I would say

                            1. Croconaw 2. Wartortle 3. Prinplup 4. Frogadier 5. Dewott 6. Marshtomp

                            1. Charmeleon 2. Monferno 3. Quilava 4. Braixen 5. Combusken 6. Pignite

                            1. Grovyle 2. Ivysaur 3. Bayleef 4. Grotle 5. Quilladin 6. Servine

                            and for 1st stages

                            1. Squirtle 2. Totodile 3. Froakie 4. Mudkip 5. Piplup 6. Oshawott

                            1. Charmander 2. Fennekin 3. Tepig 4. Cyndaquil 5. Torchic 6. Chimchar

                            1. Bulbasaur 2. Treecko 3. Chespin 4. Turtwig 5. Snivy 6. Chikorita

                              THe thing with Fennekin is people would have complained that it was a copypaste of Vulpix and Ninetale if it had stayed on 4 legs. I like the witch theme tho it looks different than the Kyubi fox. Froakie final evo could end up like this.

                                Who else thinks that Game Freak came up with Fennekin in the idea of a girl?

                                Blah, turning Froakie's final stage humanoid would be terrible in my opinion. The only thing I can see being more apparent in Froakie's last stage would be its foam around the neck. I can see that becoming a more dominant change. If it's truly based off of a ninja, then I can see it remaining slim and agile. It's blue coloring could also become darker maybe.

                                I like the idea that Fennekin's evolutionary line is based off of a witch or sorcerer. Just because it appears more feminine doesn't mean it's based off of a girl. :|

                                  Vulpix and Ninetails were fire foxes, at least the way I saw them.

                                  As for my starter, it's a hard decision. I love my Slowking, so not having him on my team is not an option. So with my water-psychic type, next to the fire-fighting type I'll have with the Torchic promotion, I'm thinking I'm going to go with Chespin as my grass type. HOWEVER. I will never ever use single types, so if Chespin is only a grass type through all evolutions, which so far it's looking like (same for the others, unfortunately), I might not end up using a starter at all, which is fine too.

                                    They're all rumored to be dual typed in their final evolutions, hopefully they will be as I want a repeat of Sinnoh not Johto.

                                    It would be interesting to have a trio of starters being singled typed for each evolution, but it would be much better for all of them to be dual-typed.. especially Fire/Psychic for Fennekin.

                                      Did you guys notice they updated the kanto starters crys slightly? Like they combined the 8 bit sounds with actual animal sounds. Bulbasaur's cry probably would be the most obvious, compare it to an unaltered cry from the previous games, then listen again to it in the kanto starters trailer? They added a bit of a hog/pig-ish sound with it. I wonder if they did the same with others...that would be kinda cool.

                                        The Kanto starters cries do sound a bit different...

                                        I feel that Fennekin will be given a third eye (the one on the forehead symbolising spiritual awakening) during it's final evolution for some reason...

                                          Either Chespin, Fennekin or Froakie for me. :3
                                          No seriously I haven't decided yet, i need to see final evos :3 But Froakie has been confirmed Water/Fighting by some 'trustworthy' spoiler guy, so i'll just say that.

                                            Anyone think this is legit? If it is, I'd say Frogadier's evo is looking Dark type, and Braixen's definitely Fairy/Psychic
