    Yea, I remember Remoraid's situation. Charmander's situation was believable since they're both reptiles.

    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).

    Actually, Remoraid and Octillery are based of off artillary and weaponry or something along those lines.

    Oh my gosh. You can tell I havent been on here since before X & Y was released.... Signature was before fairy type was even confirmed. Oh lordy that's been awhile ago.

    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)

    Yes reptiles. one a mythical flying, fire spitting beast, but a reptile nonetheless. And somehow Charmeleon the Chameleon actually tied them together nicely. I guess if feebas can become beautiful and magically transform into a water worm then alright lol

    He'll get them when he evolves, no doubt. His tail is the main spike that I see.

    Isn't Chespin supposed to be based off of some early mammal from prehistoric times? I thought I saw that somewhere...

    Nope. Hedgehog. I do not know if they were around in prehistoric times, so you may not be wrong (rats were around).

    You can never trust what you see during speculation time. I think Chespin's name in other languages imply that he is a hedgehog.

    Well of course there were mammals in prehistoric times; what do you think people evolved from, straight from dinosaurs?

    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)

    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

    But a fish into an octopus. id love it if octillery was a 2nd evo that evolved from a small blooperesque squid and then evolved into a huge krakken.

    I love it and began with it ( the coincidental Golurk, Kirlia, and Patrat in the animation matches being trumped by these types ((except the weird kirlia bit)) but im starting to fall in love with a grass/rock fire/ghost and water/electric

    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.)

    Foam is my bet too. They could do something cool with it.

    Not a big fan of that Chespin evo. The Froakie looks a bit like therian Thunderus, but I like it anyhow. Fennekin's also pretty cool.

    Glad you pointed that out, I noticed that a while back, too.

    I'm surprised we haven't heard any "Chespin is going to be a Speedy Grass type because he's loosely based on Sonic" rumors...

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