    If Chespin does turn out to be part Dark, I wont be using it. It's already weak against five types, and it being part Dark would just give it yet another weakness.

      Honestly, at first glance, I actually LIKE them all. A grass-type porcupine makes sense, a fire-type fennic fox makes great sense, but a water-typefrog was done (seismitoad, even if part ground.) Still, most likely will choose chespin, just because porcupines are a favorite mammal of mine.

      Chespin is adorable and Fennekin is gorgeous.

      They don't look ~amazing~ to me, but I'll probably go with Fenniken as it is pretty cute. I'd prefer to see their evolved forms first, though.

        Really I doubt the final evolutions will change my mind about my starter. Just like tepig being an adorable pig, I'm choosing and sticking with Froakie for being a cool frog.

          I like a lot Chespin i might say, Froakie too, but Fennekin doesn't catch me that much.

            to me, these pokemon look like they should be the level 2 ones that annoy the heck out of everyone but i'm interested to see there stats, maybe i could use croakie (what i'll name him) as an aqua jet-water gem counter to all these ninetails.

              I'm going with Froakie, simply because I think he looks the best.

              Froakie is my favourite it's so cute and adfsghj <333

              All the starter are pretty damn cute but Froakie is just so cute. For once I can actually say that all the starters from this generation are appealing.

              I'm undecided between Froakie and Chespin. I guess a lot of my final decision depends on the actual evolutionary lines, but I'm leaning more towards Froakie at the moment, but Chespin is pretty damn cute. Fennekin just...does not appeal to me at all.

                I love all of them, to be honest. When I first saw them, Fennekin was the one I gravitated to first. But after watching the video and seeing the pictures, they're all great. Even little Froakie.

                I'm going to have to buy multiple copies of these games, aren't I?

                  I kind of like them all at first glance. I wish the grass one was a little more green, but I'm sure I'll get used to it. I think they did a good job on these. With so many Pokemon already I wouldn't think they'd have an easy time making anything look new.

                    I'm giving some love to Chespin. I want to give it a top hat and monocle and call it Mr. Snuggles, and we would have adventures through a glorious mansion together.

                      Fennekin, just barely. It's odd because this is the first time I've taken an instant liking to all three of the starters.

                      The only fire starter I've had as my first pick was Torchic back in Pokemon Sapphire. So I'm glad that this gens fire starter looks so nice.

                      Of course that will probably all change once we see the evolutions.

                        Definately haven't decided yet, still have 9 months to do so. I'm either going with the Frog or Fox though, because I can see the Frog evolving into a deathlord for some reason. Probably because of the ugliness thing. And the Fox, well, just reminds of Vulpix, which is a Pokemon I love. Fennekin, if I choose it, will break the Water-Pokemon streak on the first version, which is a good streak to end since I started playing in Gen III. However, second time around, I always go for Grass. Until Gen V. When I went with Fire.

                        Definitely not Grass though. I hate the look of the thing. Some people would call it cuteness, I call is a revolting monster.

                        I disagree, I think Chespin is incredibly cute.
                        To each his own, I guess.

                          Here's what I thought of the starters individually...

                          Chespin - looks okay I guess, could be a chipmunk with a chestnut hat or something? I don't love or hate it's design, I'm just curious to see what the rest of it's evolutions look like and what the hat thing could turn into. If the attacks it used were hints at it's final typing my guess would be Grass/Dark. Seemed like it first used Solarbeam and then Night Slash second, which is super effective against Golurk.

                          Fennekin - I like Fennekin a lot because I like fire types in general, but I found it to be a little repetitive of Vulpix. But it looks cool enough in it's first stage and I want to see where this fire fox design goes. Hopefully it doesn't look like any of the other fox pokemon. For the final typing I would guess Fire/Psychic, because it looked like it used Flamethrower and then Psybeam or Extrasensory.

                          Froakie - my favorite so far and the most interesting to me, I can't see why everyone is hating on it. I actually like it's design and it looked good in battle. Seemed like it had good speed, a trait I value. For the final typing I have two guesses: Water/Fighting and Water/Flying. I said fighting because it looked like a physical attacker when it was in battle judging by the second attack. As I thought of more possibilities, I came up with Water/Flying because of Froakie's design. It has what looks like a cape around it's neck or something that looks like a cloud. Maybe that could turn into a parachute or something? I looked it up and read about something called the Malabar Gliding Frog. It's a frog that jumps from high areas and glides to get where it needs to go, so I could see where a Flying type inspiration could come from. I couldn't figure out what the second attack was, but I thought it could possibly be Acrobatics, a flying type move. I'm hoping it does develop into a Water/Flying type, because there is already a fighting frog (Poliwrath), a poison frog (Toxicroak), and a ground frog (Seismitoad) so I think a flying frog would be cool.

                          Usually I go with the fire starter, but I would have to see their complete evolutions to really make a decision. Right now Froakie appeals the most to me but they all have potential. Can't wait to see their full evolutions though. I'm just hoping for some new type combos this time around, and Fennekin better not become a Fire/Fighting type somehow.

                            Chespin I think will stay Grass type all the way through. At least that's what the design looks like.

                            I think Fennekin will evolve into a psycho-fox or something, and be Fire/Psychic. That could be an interesting type.

                            Also, as for Froakie, I would go for a Water/Poison might happen. Some toads are poisonous. Or perhaps the Water/Fighting combonation. Although I think they will be looking for unique type combo's in Gen VI.

                              I also considered a cloud frog for Froakie, like a frog meditating on a cloud. But Water/Fighting would make sense. Grass/Dark, Fire/Psychic, and Water/Fighting would balance out perfectly. Also, Froakie was fighting a Patrat in the video, maybe the move was supereffective?

                              I guess I'm gonna be like most of the people in here and say that I like Fennekin the most. Froakie is...okay, I suppose, never really been big on any of the frog pokemon, and I'm not as sold on Chespin. Kinda meh to me. Fennekin, though...yeah, when I was looking through pics this morning, that was the first one that really caught my eye.

                              Or rather, its ear fur did. That ear fur, man. Yeah I know it's based off fennec foxes but still!

                              No opinion one way or the other on any of them (I'll see! geesh) but I do have to say Froakie (I'll have to get used to that won't I) reminds me of keroppi.
