If shauna was the girl to go with ash, I don't see it as unreasonable to believe she gets chespin, with the only argunent against it being ash always getting the grass starter.
But I agree that if Chepsin has to be caught, it should be caught by the female protagonist (which will hopefully be Serena). Ash needs to have at least one fabulous Pokemon and if Oshawott has to leave, then Fennekin would be a more suitable replacement because she's adorable and has the most potential in my opinion. She's just so gorgeous. ❤
As for the otter.
Dollars to donuts on Oshawott actually staying, unless Ash pulls a Johto I really don't see Oshawott staying or want him to stay. This is coming from a big Oshawott fan, he's gotten more than enough screen time in Unova and battles and probably has the best showing next to Pignite in-terms of it. So he really doesn't need to stay at all. Just like Totodile, Corphish and Buizel I think he'll be replaced when the new gen starts.
Now if Ash were to get an Eevee evo, let it be a Dragon-type. And since its been said Fairy is effective against Dragon I could see Gen 6 having one, since all the way back to Gen 1 there has always been an Eevee evolution weak to the other: Jolteon > Vaporeon > Flareon, Umbreon > Espeon, and Glaceon > Leafeon.

By your logic, Ken dolls were created for male audiencesSylveon was created by man just like Barbie was, so I'm not seeing your logic that it's not the same thing. In the world of Pokemon Sylveon is a living creature, but so is Barbie in her world, yes an animated version of Barbie does exist, in fact I'm sure there's quite a handful of Barbie movies out there. The only difference is Barbie is a human and Sylveon is a creature.
Well I do think different Pokemon are meant to attract different audiences, as they want more people to buy the games. However, that's not to say Ash can't get it because it's not masculine enough.So what you're arguing is that Gamefreak isn't trying to appeal to both boys and girls, that's completely false. Just because there are guys who may like Sylveon or there are girls who like Darkrai, or maybe Sawk/Throh/Thundurus/Tornadus/Landorus, doesn't mean that said Pokemon weren't designed to appeal to a specific gender more than an other. That's completely ignoring how this world works.
Well some people were smart enough to put Dento on the cast with Mamoru Miyano, so obviously they think about the female audienceExceptions do exist people, this world is not BLACK and WHITE, like you seem to think it is. Ash and Sylveon however I don't think is one of those exceptions, especially when most of developers of the anime, I'm assuming are male.
I don't care if Ash gets Sylveon or not, I'm just mad you said it was too cute.If Ash gets Sylveon, fine, I'm wrong, but how about we cross that bridge if it ever happens.

So maybe Steel then going the other way? IIRC I read some myths (and some fantasy novels that employed this) about how "Iron" was used to ward off the more malevolent fair folk and other supernaturals. Heck maybe will get lucky and get a new Eevee trio this time instead of a duo?

What I was saying is for those who think a female Fennekin is too feminine for Ash, then Sylveon is even more feminine and less people will want it for the same reasons.
However I should say starters =/= other Pokemon.
Clearly it doesn't matter if a starter is too masculine or too feminine, but it might be a different story for a Pokemon that is viewed as less marketable.
Ash can have girly Pokemon, sure, but a female snivy nor a female Pidove, nor even all the other female Pokemon Ash has still doesn't compare to Sylveon.
I'm just looking at it from the perspective of the writers, the executive producers, and who exactly approves the choices of what Ash catches.
I just can't see them, or that one person agreeing to Ash and Sylveon due to the idea that from the perspective of perhaps the majority of the viewers wouldn't find their relationship to coalesce very well because Sylveon I'm pretty sure was designed to appeal more to the girly girls of the fandom, than your average person.
Especially since we're talking about Ash here, who has never truly had an obviously feminine Pokemon, and only has ever had female Pokemon. And by feminine I mean design-wise, and NOT a starter since those clearly have to be excluded for obvious reasons.

Anyway, I'm really surprised that some people want to see Ash with a Sylveon (is that how it's spelled?). I mean that Pokemon just looks like the kind a female traveling companion would get, not Ash. There's a huge difference between female Pokemon and feminine Pokemon in my opinion. I'm all for Ash getting female Pokemon because there's no reason why he shouldn't, but feminine Pokemon just don't seem to fit Ash's style in my opinion. And no, I don't think Fennekin is too feminine. She's a precious gift from above that Ash needs to get asap imo.

im torn id love to see some chespin, but i worry about it going the route of so many of ash's starters, that being the none evolving route. much as i have issues with samurott i think its a bit ridiculous ash never got oshawott to that stage. and i hate the idea of chespin's evo's getting neglected with there being a chespin in the main cast.
that said im not to interested in seeing ash with another fire type (which actually prob will evolve) so i think id like to see froakie with ash. i think it be fun if it had a real curious personality. not to mention it seems quite built to be hanging on to ash's back with its head pearing over his sholder.

Based on the Pokémon we already know about and comparing it to Ash's Unova Mon's I predict that his line-up in Kalos will look like this: -
Unfezant - Fletchling
Oshawott - Froakie
Pignite - Fennekin
Snivy - Chespin
Scraggy - Pancham
Leavanny - Gogoat
Palpitoad - Clauncher
Boldore - Litleo
Krookodile - Noivern
