You also can't play the games on the 3DS unless you import one from Japan because the 3DS is region-locked, so even if the games were being released worldwide at different times like before it'd be pointless to pay double the money only to be unable to play the game (unless, like I said, you have a Japanese 3DS).

Same here. But I guess that is why all of us fans create those things based off other characters and such. Like how Fennekin became a Firefox logo from fan art. x3

Yeah, which is why I never liked the region locking that Nintendo put on all of their consoles, 'cause this usually means some games that only get released in Japan can't be released elsewhere in the world. To be honest, I really wish region-locking never existed. :P

That image surely does make it look like Froakie is a Water/Ice-type, especially how one polygon looks like a snowflake. It makes me think "Oh my, now Froakie is a Water/Ice-type". xD

But I think there is actually a bit of grass there that sticks through the polygon that makes it make it look like a snowflake. So now it returns to just a plain Water-type for now. xD

The original two DSes aren't region-locked! (I forgot if the DSis were or not; never owned one.) And I think there's a way for people to mod the Wii so it can play imported games; I knew some people who were able to do so.

Can't most Water types learn Ice Beam (it looks like Ice Beam to me, ffffff) anyhow? XD

Yeah, only the handheld systems from GameBoy to Nintendo DS were the ones that were region free, but the home consoles were always region locked.

I think Froakie might be using Ice Beam, but then again... when it hits Panseer, it really seems like a Water-type move. But yeah, I wonder if it's really Ice Beam or Water Gun? If it really was Ice Beam, it wouldn't have hurt Panseer so much. I always remember how in Pokémon Stadium that the Pokémon that got hit by a move that they would resist, they didn't use an animation for when they got hurt by an attack they would resist against. xD

The grass is in the background. Also there are other snowflakes on there, one big one especially:



Although some Water-types learn Ice Beam naturally (I would assume they wouldn't display a TM move), 5 out of the 16 are pure Water and 2 of those evolve into Water/Ice which leaves 3. Sarcasm is pretty mocking you know. :/

Hm... interesting, I think the snowflakes in the image do actually show some "Ice-type" attack going on, I kind of see it now that it's outlined a bit in the image. (I apologize, I didn't mean to be sarcastic in my previous post, I was a little unsure, hope you'll forgive me) ;)

Oh water/ice? That'd be nice to see in a starter, given that nothing else has taken that route, and from how it looks... the clouds could just represent cumulus and therefore represent rain/water, while in general its attacks represent ice!

Hm... speaking of cloud types... what if the clouds on Froakie were cirrus spissatus clouds? Those type of clouds produce ice crystals, so there could be a chance of Froakie (or at least it's later evolutions) being an Water/Ice-type, that would be so cool. :)

I'm not sure, they seem to look a lot like cumulus clouds, being the rain ones. I mean I can't really see them properly right now but from the start I've assumed they were like cumulus clouds. idk I'd think ice-related clouds would be more pointy as opposed to soft :x

Although water and ice is far from unique, it'd still be cool for a starter's type.

That would make Froakie the first starter with a super effective STAB vs the 2 other starters wouldn't it? Poor Chespin! I kinda hope Froakie isn't part Ice. :s

Then again, Fennekin looks like it could be part Psychic and Chespin looks like it could be part Ground, Rock or Dark so we could see a really interesting starter trio for once. :3

Hm... it makes me wonder if Fennekin becomes Fire/Fighting in it's evolutions? I hope it doesn't, but even if it does... I'd still adore it. x3

From what I've known, Fire/Fighting has been overused. And has been in every starter since Generation III. xD

I really doubt it will be, considering how we've seen its design thus far and the other two look like they're more likely to fight honestly.

      Hm... if Froakie and it's evolutions were a Water/Flying, wouldn't it's evolutions look like Zephos and Cyclos from Zelda Wind Waker? xD

        If Froakie's evo was Water/Flying, he'd be really weak to electric.

        We discussed a Water/flying typing a few pages back. Syd made a point that the Zelda games had a frog on a cloud.

        That's kind of mean! :( Chances are it won't be happening but even if it does, then you shouldn't think of doing something like that - they're the reason you have the upcoming games anyway. :3

        I think doesn't mean it literally. I think he's just saying he's tired of Fire/Fighting starters. Casue I know I am. 3 is enough so I hope Fennekin and it's evolutions are Fire/Ghost or Fire/Psychic.

          Its a figure of speech and if i actually did that i'd probably go to jail.And Tepig didn't look like it would be a part fighting type either so GF might pull another fast one on us and make it another firefighter but hopefully not.

          I think Game Freak knows by now not to make another Fire/Fighting starter, especially after all the bad reception from Emboar.

          Ooh this discussion again, I can't see them doing it for a fourth consecutive starter so I'm confident they will do something else.
