    I would hope it would be faster than scizor and enough defense to survive a bullet punch. and a Stab mach punch. Physical Bulk to help the multitude of physical fighting moves and steel moves. but Ice and Bug Buzz would mess him up. Same with high special attacking fires.

    But yeah I think they tried to make a physical Cradily with Torterra and gave it Ground to become offensive. Then Ferrothorn came and was pretty much Cradily 2.0. but now I think this is the generation that GF tries to right the wrongs it made like it tried doing with the hidden abilities last gen *long stare at politoed and every pokemon that had sturdy*

    Does anyone think Chespin can take its hat off? Like Scrafty can.
    No. It is not a hat really, it is an extension of his back armor (i.e. part of his body).

    This is more and less how I envision Froakie. I'm not an artist, but I tried to make it simple since I tend to like those design more. It's a sketch anyway. No clue about the color scheme.

    Kinda like a frog-lion (?) with a pipe 'cuz pipes are cool.

    Pipes are cool. I know that a lot of people have drawn pipes in as accessories to match the personality of their fakemon, but I kind of hope that Froakie's final evo actually smokes a pipe. I mean, Samurott had swords, so...

    I've never realized how sweet of a mustache Samurott has. I hope Froakie's evolution gets even better facial hair.

    Could you elaborate "tried"? I thought they successfully fixed charizard to at least function decently outside of NU And the fixed blaziken so much they broke him.

    Ya I hope its like this (though we won't know till later, most likely in the anime), though the fact that it looks like a hat is so very cute! And I want one.

    Does Chespin look a little bit like Bianca to anyone else?

    By try I dont mean failed. You cant succeed without trying. not a negative connotation there.

    Not even after that picture showing her turn into one, no.

    The only thing I see in Chespin is Cilan, and that's only because their hair(Or whatever for Chespin) looks similar to me(Still fairly different though).

    Now that you mention it, a little bit. But it seems more like a dopey Pokemon Bianca would catch. Finally, a Pokemon to match Bianca.

    Speaking of Bianca. Even though she annoyed me sometimes she was probably one of Ash's best rivals imo, I just loved how she was so stupid. I hope she returns, and then hooks up with Barry C;
    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

    True, hopefully they do that.

    Agreed, they did take some good steps in BW/2 with the hidden abilities and buffing up old ones/moves, hopefully they'll keep it up.

    I'm leaning towards the "yes, it can" option." Or, atleast I hope it can.

    I don't see them going the Bulbasaur-route (the grass on its back has a symbiotic nature) but rather a more Oshawott-route (he utilizes the elemental accessory for attack and defense.)

        Spoiler:- Chespin Tugging on His Hood:


        Spoiler:- Artist Taking Chespin's Hood:


    I've heard rumor that Chespin will evolve into a knight (with chestnut armor) or thief (with a grass-based Robin Hood theme). Both of these can imply that the Chespin evo WEAR grass as opposed to BECOME grass. Either way, if the typing and design are right, I'm cool with whatever.

    I think it is not a hood. If it were a hood it would attach around Chespin's neck.

    Emboar's got that sweet beard, too. Maybe Fennekin will get mutton chops.

    Look on its back, green the same color as on the top of its head. The "hat" is an extension of that.

    I've heard rumor that Chespin will evolve into a knight (with chestnut armor) or thief (with a grass-based Robin Hood theme). Both of these can imply that the Chespin evo WEAR grass as opposed to BECOME grass. Either way, if the typing and design are right, I'm cool with whatever.
    That is baseless speculation, though. There is no indication either of those things will happen.

    Edit P.S.: I should be more specific. Speculation is fine, but I am basing my claim on the images of Chespin we have, as opposed to wishful concepts that do not come from an official source.

    IMO, Froakie having a mustache will make it seem unoriginal.

    Wh... why is the minority picking Chespin? I'd expect the order to be Fennekin, Chespin, Froakie. Maybe it's because nobody can tell what it is? In my opinion, it's the most creative of the three and my favorite.
