    It is a possibility, judging solely by the move Chespin used, but I don't think that moves mean anything at all.

    My bet is that Chespin will evolve into a Grass/Rock or Grass/Steel bulky Pokémon.

    Naw, dude, these starter mons have prolly been in the making for a while. Pure coincidence, IMHO.
    Though, by that logic, Fennekin is Fire/Ground upon evolution?
    I like that, it's new.
    tbh I can't see Fennekin as part ground type but I can easily see It's hidden ability as sand friendly. someone else suggested it the other day, I would find that pretty awesome, sand veil or sand rush Fennekin would give some welcomed special Attack/def variety to sand teams, assuming It really will get special typing.
    Fennekin Forever!!!!!

    I'm hoping moreso that Chespin will become Grass/Rock, as it's a type combination that has currently only been used for one other Pokemon line, and I think it would have a lot of potential as far as its design is concerned.

    Okay then. Personally I think both combinations suck badly. Grass/Dark has a lot of weaknesses and so do Grass/Flying.
    Imo Grass/Steel is the right way to make Chespin's final evo a pretty awesome Pokémon.

    Dark would fit Froakie better. Or even Ghost. A Water/Ghost starter would be soooo cool.

    Eh, I'm not the competitive type so it doesn't matter too much to me about weaknesses. Grass has a lot of weakness in general, but some of those weaknesses aren't common types.
    I think perhaps Grass/Rock could very well fit Chespin. And that would only be like 3 weaknesses.

    There are Fire Pokémon that can use Psychic moves as well and yet, people are speculating about Fennekin evolving into a Psychic Pokémon judging solely by that move.
    haha, never liked the idea of Fennekin going Psychic. Look at Ninetales. That dude can do all kinds of Psychic manipulation, and he's pure Fire. Fennekin's gonna surprise us, no doubt.

    Most likely, if Chespin is to gain any added type, it'll be either Dark, Rock, Ground, or Steel. If it just so happens to turn out to be anything other than those 4 types, I will be very surprised.
    Yeah, an evil hedgehog, I doubt that'll happen.
    Yeah, a granite hedgehog, I doubt that'll happen.
    Yeah, a seismic hedgehog, I doubt that'll happen.
    Yeah, a metal hedgehog, I doubt that'll happen.
    Wait.

    But a lot of weaknesses makes annoying to play with a Pokémon even on in-game runs :/
    I am not a competitive player either.

    Grass/Rock would be interesting, Grass/Steel would be perfect.

    I don't know, but I can believe more in Fennec and Frog became Flying, like some people said here before , than Chestnut.

    Grass/Dark would only gain one additional weakness to Grass if I'm thinking correctly (Fighting)? Well two I guess if you count 4x to Bug. But at the same time, it would gain resistances to Psychic completely, and half to Ghost and Dark.

    Grass/Steel is interesting, but then I'd never be able to beat my friend when we do our starter vs. starter battles hahaha xD

    How would Fennekin become a flier? Really, I am not joking, I really want to know.

    And yeah, I can see Froakie playing Zephos on us and evolving into a frog sitting in a flying cloud. It would be cool, except Water/Flying suck :|

    Lol, my feelings about Empoleon. It is awesome, but it is hard to make it win against Torterra (Curse you Earthquake) and Infernape (Any Fighting move).

    Uhh, I don't know about you, but those all sound far more plausible than a mammal clearly incapable of flight gaining the Flying type.

    Because a rooster incapable of fighting gaining the Fighting-type is very plausible... lol

    I really can't wait for these games to be released. i noticed that when froakie used that first attack which i immediately thought of as water gun. but then when the close up showed the water coming out his mouth has "snow-flakes" i kinda had second thoughts whether is it a water gun or an ice attack or its just the new animation for water gun maybe? imo, froakie will be a water/fighting or water/ice, fennekin's fire/psychic and chespin's grass/steel.

    Actually, we can probably learn the legitimacy of this "leak" relatively soon. The name of the region and the regional bird are usually amongst the first things to be revealed, so if the region is Aienki and the bird is Atorubi/Finchett then this is probably the real deal. If not then definitely fake.

    (pin, spike and spear is pretty clever in my opinion, and the "cloud" on Froakie is supposed to be foam)

    The thing is if Fennekin do become part psychic type, will they let Ash catch it, and evolve it? I think Fennekin will stay as a pure fire type Pokemon.

    Hedgehog...? I still say the little dude is more of a porcupine, my Bros and Brodettes.

    Of course, mammals can be dang hard to pin down. Just look at how long it took to identify the Cyndaquil family (of which there are still arguments going around today). Or the contrast between the Oshawott family and the Buizel family.

    I say what I say because a hedgehog is a much more Defensive quil Pokemon while a Porcupine is a more Offensive quil Pokemon. A hedgehog will roll into a ball for protection and chirp at you. A porcupine walks around with exposed quils and takes swipes. I don't see Chespin OR its evolutions necessarily lying on the ground being on the defense. I see them as taking the initiative and using their quils to attack. Especially if we think it'll have some kind of dual-type.

    Plus that tail. Not only is it big, it's very distinct with the pattern on the tip. You look at cute, little Shaymin by comparison and the poor thing has a naked butt.

    But whatever the case, all I know is this is making me more and more interested in Chespin over Fennekin (Froakie is still a clear 1st Place). I cannot wait to see how it progresses.

    THANK YOU! Finally, I have met someone else who actually wants Fennekin to be a cute little pur Fire Fox!
    Only time I've ever cried in Pokemon; when Ash took over command of Chimchar in the Tag Team Tournament. That's when I started to love Chimchar & Monferno Lol keep in mind I was 9

    Seriously. Love it. Fennekin the flying fox all the way. *fist pumps*


    And ay-oh V Faction, you've definitely got the right idea. I think judging on a lot of the fan art that's been posted, most people have looked upon Chespin as a Porcupine anyway, calling it a hedgehog cos... I dunno, the dude kinda looks like Sonic. He's cool. He's not blue, but he's got an attitude. He's THE FASTEST THING ALIVE.
