    Based purely off design I like Fennekin the best, will lose my **** if its another fire/fighting though, thankfully that looks unlikely. Not a fan of the names though, they'll likely grow on me in time, but if not hooray for nicknames.

    I have to say that Froakie and Chespin intrigue me most out of the 3. Froakie is obvs. based off of a frog and chespin appears to stem from Chestnut and some sort of rodent species?

    Everything came from the water and the earth. Time for a new adventure.

    I'm going to wait and see the evolved forms before I jump to conclusions of who I'll use or like. Things changed for me when they revealed the BW starters evolved forms. But I adore Chespin, he's just adorable. Fennekin gives me the vibes that Snivy did when it was revealed, like trying to look awesome.

    Fennekin's adorable! Looks like I'm choosing the Fire Starter this time, regardless of its Stats.

    I'm hoping Fennekin's a Fire/Psychic type. That'd make it the first starter with that Type combo.

    I have claimed Alucard (Hellsing), Sebastian (Kuroshitsuji), and Laguna Loire (Final Fantasy VIII).

    Same here. I've never chosen Tepig as my starter as I don't like Emboar at all.
    Fennekin here looks interesting, it's the first fire type that's looked quite feminine (compared to others) Chespin and Froakkie look pretty cool, I'd have to see the other evolutions though first before I could make proper judgements.

    I think you might be right.It would make sense for the fox to be part Ghost.Though,the frog looks so intelectual.I must say,I'm intrigued.

    I think Chespin is using Night Slash in the vid.I dunno about the others.

    I hope one of them ends up being -psychic. I'm dying for a proper fire/psychic line.

    I'm gradually warming to Froakie and slowly going off Chespin. Fennekin at the moment seems... well, it's a good design and all but I can't get Vulpix/Ninetails out of my head whenever I look at it.

    Chespin doesn't seem like much to mee tbh. Fennekin looks awesome, and Froakie is cool. Don't mind what Froakie's evos will be, I'll start with the Water starter anyways, It's a tradition that I won't break. For my second playthrough as a female character, Fennekin is my pick, It just screams for a female trainer.

    I actually like all three of the starters this time. Fav is probably Fennekin though and I'm most likely going to end up using it. Hoping it's gonna end up part psychic because it seemed to be using a psychic attack in the trailer...
    For me, Chespin kinda looks like an otter, but I still like it none the less. Froakie seems to be very interesting. The two white spots almost make it look like its wearing glasses.

    Guys something just ran a bell about the Fire Starters about something based on what PokeJungle mentioned (during speculation). The fire starters are based on Chinese Zodiac Animals. Charmander is based on the dragon, Cyndaquill is a rat, Torchic is a rooster, Chimchar is a monkey, Tepig is a pig and Fennekin is a fox but it maybe based on the tiger from the Zodiac (maybe it evolves into a tiger Pokemon). Just thought you would be interested.

    Chespin looks really different, its face, arms, legs and tail don't seem to based on a single animal. I wonder how it will end up its evolution.

    The inspiration behind Chespin is a chestnut and a hedgehog/porcupine. Both the Japanese and English (and French and German) names reference each.

    The first two kinda work, but Froakie looks NOTHING like Seismitoad + Vanillish.

    I'm thinking Froakie is likely to become a sage-type character, or a wizard, what with the spectacles, white 'hair' and the fact that it looks like he's struggling to hear. Toss in the significance of frogs and the occult in Western folklore and the fact that 'Froakie' could potentially be a play on 'fogey' (as in, 'old fogey'), we may have a water/psychic on our hands.

    I think Fennekin will be Fire/Psychic type... it really looks like it. but, really, as long as we don't have another Fire/Fighting starter, fine by me.

    I will likely choose Froakie. seeing that we'll have Palpitoad (if the statue is anything to go by), I find it curious that we have two Water-type frogs in the same Dex.

    I like Chespin the most here. Its dorky-lloking face is its charm point imo. I would most likely use it.

    Fennekin looks adorable too, especially for its feminine looks.

    Froakie looks okay. I like it the least among this set of starters and when compared to other starters, but I still like it.
    Funny, because I was thinking that Kennekin's little extension on its hind legs reminds me of Virizion. Chespin reminds me of Oshawott because of how its expression, and how its body is sectioned and given different colors. At the moment I'm neutral about seeing them, though, brand new stuff but the design doesn't really get me excited for some reason.
    The best evolutionary designs are brought about by a balance between change and consistency.

    It doesn't look like it's struggling to hear,it looks like it's thinking.I get a very intellectual vibe from it...kinda like an arristocrat.
