NONE, Dunsparce looks better
Still kinda hoping for the grass/dark, fire/psychic, water/fighting typing as they evolve. Am I the only one? That way each starter has a STAB advantage against the other two, which would be brilliant, imo...
Charmander, if anything, is based on a mythological "salamander". He does not even really resemble an actual salamander (which is, I believe, a variety of amphibian).
Well, the thing everyone thinks is a hat is actually connected to his back. That is where his spikes will be most likely. (Already has a few)
Isn't Chespin supposed to be based off of some early mammal from prehistoric times? I thought I saw that somewhere...
right after I watched the trailer I picked froakie mainly because water types are awesome and also because froakie looked like a pretty strong pokemon also I now have a new saying so I hear you like froakies
Nope. Hedgehog. I do not know if they were around in prehistoric times, so you may not be wrong (rats were around).Isn't Chespin supposed to be based off of some early mammal from prehistoric times? I thought I saw that somewhere...
I wish I could remember what it was that I saw that they said Chespin was based off of. It kinda looked like a rat/armadillo mix; it even had a tail similar to Chespin's.
It'd just make sense, since all the grass starters up to now have been based off of animals that have been around for tens of thousands, if not millions, of years.
I heard someone in this topic imply Bulbasaur was based on the creature you mention. (Yes, I know what you mean, the name escapes me, I think it starts with G)
What many of the fan arts are ignoring are some of the more prominent design features of the starters. Chespin's 'hat', froakie's 'glasses' and 'fennekin's 'ear-hair'. I think these will be prominent parts of the final forms. Oshawott's scallops, Snivy's tail-leaf for example.
About Froakie's glasses, in the trailer, they are clearly spherical orbs. Not flat, like glasses should be, so I think they are supposed to be bubbles or something. I think bubbles and/or foam will be a big part of his evolutionary appearance.
I thought at first Fennekin would be my starter, but Chespin kind of grew on me. He looks unique and he is the first mammal grass starter. (I'm surprised I haven't picked grass starters more often, my favorite color is hunter green.)That hat makes him so cool for some reason. when i first saw him i was ticked off because it looked like sentret and oshawott had a baby and it put on a green costume. but now im loving him. if froakie wasnt awesome then id go with the chestnut hedgehog

Hey, maybe Chespin could be in the next Smash Bros. If Sonic returns, you could have battle of the hedgehogs!
