    I actually like these! I'm seeing very little hate which is a huge difference from last year, iirc there were lots of hate for our little Unova starters :(

    Chespin kind of reminds me of Oshawott but I actually like it's design and hopefully its fully evolved form looks cool, because I think I'm going to pick this one. n_n Froakie's alright, I hope it doesn't end up like Seismitoad and Fennekin like Ninetales. But overall these are nice!

    I just realized today that since there is almost no way they could pull off a Fire/Fighting fox we are free from that type combination!

      I would really have to see the evolutions to decide who I'm going to pick, seeing as I always pick my starters on who I think looks the coolest.

      I do think Froakie has huge potential, though, so I'm really excited to see what he's going to look like fully evolved.

      I'm not a huge fan of the grass type. It just looks so.... familiar. I really want to see what the fire type will look like though, since I can definitely see something epic evolving from that little fox. I'm generally super excited about the new game, and can't wait to see the other gen six pokemon.

        But the evolutions haven't even been released yet. I really hope Froakie doesn't turn out to be something like Oshawott to Samurott. That was really disappointing.

        So what are your typing guesses, guys?
        I have a feeling Chespin gains a Fighting subtype. It stands upright already. However, it looks like a mole, so it could be Grass/Ground.

        Fennekin I can't see sub-typed. None really match. Unless it gains Psychic abilities (I swear I saw it using a Psychic attack in the trailer, so I'd bank on this one). Just look at my avatar, so cute chasing a Pokéball on the string!

        (Just to clear something up, I'm male. That just looks cute.)

        Froakie is like a Water form of Croagunk to me. I'm not a fan of it as I never liked Croagunk (must be a frog thing). However, it may grow on me. Water/Poison, mebbe? In light of a post below mine, Water/Fighting is my second guess for the same reason stated; I saw a Fighting move there. However, a lot of Pokémon can learn individual Fighting moves. I'm going with Water/Poison as a frog comes across as a poisonous type to me.

          I remember thinking that when Tepig was revealed, a fighting pig is just a ridiculous idea, and it was indeed ridiculous.

            I really love these starters, there getting no where near as much hate as Unova's. Chespin looks really cool, and looks like he could turn into some bad-ass Pokemon. Fennekn is too cute, it is adorable <3 I can see it turning into some really beautiful Pokemon. Froakie is okay looking, but Im glad to say his evolutions have big potential. I think they missed the mark with the other frog Pokemon, maybe this time they'll hit it.

            I think the types will be: Chespin-Grass/Dark, Fennekin-Fire/Psychic and Froakie-Water-Fighting. Reasons, well in the trailer it appears that they use moves mentioned above. This would be awesome because then all the types would be balanced.

              Out of the three I like Chespin and Fennekin equally I have lost my love for the water starters since Gen III. I'm sorry Froakie

              In their final forms I think this'll be their typing

              Chespin - Grass/Dark
              Fennekin - Fire/Psychic (This one I'm more sure of considering Fennekin used a psychic looking move in the trailer)
              Froakie - Water/Poison

                I agree with people saying that another fire/fighting type would be near impossible. I think, from the video, Fennekin might be a psychic type. This move here looks psychic to me. I am not familiar with each of how the attack works, but does this not look like Woobat's Heart Stamp? Maybe it is a new move, but who knows.

                  I was looking at that scene too, and to me it looks like Fennekin's attack looked like the beginnings of a Dark Pulse. Just because of the oval rings and the dark purple and stuff. Rather it not be dark type though, because I think Fennekin is already too similar to Zorua as it is.

                    I don't quite understand the hate towards Froakie. Poor water type...I remember Oshawott getting bashed when Gen V came out because it looked "overdesigned" (and ugly), and now I'm hearing that Froakie looks too plainly like...a frog (and ugly). Ironically, everyone went nuts for Oshawott AFTER they saw its final evolution form. I'm half-expecting the same sort of hypocrisy with Froakie as well. So hold your horses!

                    Don't quite like Chespin at first sight, as I'm not all over the goofy look that's reminiscent of Happy Tree Friends. Again, subject to change once I see its evolutions.

                    If I had to choose a starter based on its initial form, I'll just take Fennekin, but honestly I'll have to see what their evolved forms are like before I make a real decision. The existence of Vulpix sorta toned down my hype for Fennekin, probably because I'm looking for something more different.

                      I agree with this but I am led to believe Froakie is a Water/Fighting. In the trailer, it strikes a Patrat in a move that looks like Close Combat.

                        Some of the screen shot descriptions for that said that Froakie tackled Patrat so its hard to tell.

                            ^Yes I agree, Froakie has grown on me and It will be really hard for me to pick. And oh thanks Xander that does make it hard to tell.

                            The very second I saw the Fire-type starter, I despised it. Seriously, I hate that thing!
                            As for my favourite, it's Froakie. It's Water-type, which I usually choose anyway, plus it's a frog.

                                As always, the fire type gets the most love (even Tepig, that pig's ugly).
                                Then they're making a grass type ala Treecko (which walks in two feet), because the water/fire starters always get that kind of characteristic.

                                I think they'll end like this
                                Chespin - Speedy, grass/ground maybe?
                                Fennekin - Plain fire like Cyndaquil line
                                Froakie - I don't care what it'll be, it's my favorite among the three

                                Chespin is like a mole Oshawott, Fennekin is Vulpix/Fire Zorua. Froakie is the most unique for me.

                                From the fan art I have seen (mostly Nick's avatar) I must say that Chespin is my favourite at the moment. So cute :3

                                  Wow these starters are cool, I like them more than the previous starters.

                                    I absolutely love Fennekin. Fennekin is sooooo adorable. x3

                                    Well, ever since I saw the starter on the Pokémon Direct presentation, now I know which starter I'm choosing now. I can't wait to pick Fennekin and start playing the game once it's launched. ^^

                                    I don't really mind how Fennekin would look in it's evolved forms, I bet they would look absolutely stunning though. :D

                                      The move it used looked like acrobatics to me, especially since it seemed like Froakie was flipping around Patrat and hitting it.

                                      Another thing that I'm thinking about with the starters in the game... is that I think I can speculate what types they will be.

                                      Chespin - Grass
                                      Fennekin (my absolute favorite x3) - Fire (yes, plain fire type)
                                      Froakie - Water

                                      By the look of those Pokémon, I wouldn't be surprised that they won't have any secondary type. xD

                                      Chespin looks like it could just be plain Grass. It's also my least favorite (there's still love for you.) (I hated Smugleaf)

                                      So does Fennekin, except not grass but Fire. It also happens to be my most favorite (I always luff fire types, but more so this time with Fennekin.)

                                      And Froakie could be Water-FlyingIce or something. Maybe. I like this guy, too.

                                        Hopefully Fennekin is a Fire and Psychic type. Those are probably two of my favorite types. I'm not such a fan of Froakie or Chespin, but they'll grow on me eventually.
