NONE, Dunsparce looks better
What type of stats do you think the starters will have?
Chespin: High defenses and HP, decent Attack, low speed and low Sp Attack
Fennekin: High Sp Attack, decent Speed and decent Sp. Defense, low Defense and low Attack, low HP
Froakie: High Speed and Attack, decent Defense, alright Sp. Attack, low HP and low Sp Defense

About Froakie, I don't really see a frog Pokémon being a fast Pokémon. However, Froakie does look like a tree frog, so Speed may be its second highest. Other than that it should be another Attack Pokémon, but let's see what GameFreak does.
although type discussion is good and all but, I wanna ask ppl what types of attack you want on their movepool? (starters)
I for 1 energybeam for fennekin-line, better than solar beam or grass knot for the last 2 gens and no w8ing. Thou i still dont get the reason how come no special electric type move has ever been teachable to fire types.
water has 2 weakness that doesnt have common ground but they mostly get counter moves for them in ice beam and 1 ground attack for electric. so no need to worry for froakie
For chespin, grass type is always a pain the back side at the 1st glance but by learning 1 rock move they can actually have a good counter. Thou most cases they couldnt.
So i actually want every single starter to learn 1 attack that can counter their weaknesses regardless of typing. What about you?

I'm just hoping personally, that we have a fast Water starter this gen. Maybe Froakie doesn't gain that much weight as it evolves unlike Palpitoad to Seismitoad.
I'm really leaning towards Chespin, right now. I really believe that people will regret choosing Fennekin, in a similar way as Snivy. Everyone loved Snivy, but then he was kind of terrible. I have a feeling Fennekin is going to end up being the same way.
Mine is an unchanging love, higher than the heights above, deeper than the depths beneath, free and faithful, strong as death.

Images removed for making the signature too tall.
Think I'll go for Froakie, Chespin looks way to Pachirusu/emolga while Fennekin looks like a Digimon.
I really hope Froakie will be Water + Poison later on. That will be an great addition since there are only (3 water/poison in total) imo, I will go with Froakie when the time comes.
Also yeah if Fennekin does turn out to be Psychic maybe he'll be Sp.Att/ Sp.Def. He could be Sp.Att/Speed though. Maybe they will go after the fact that its a fox and go with speed. Idk.
I'm not so sure on Speed with Froakie. If it turns into fighting he might be Att/Def or Att/Sp.Att but seeing as there are no Speed water starters Froakie might be the first.

That being said, I really hope they don't make another Fire/Fighting starter. I'll probably use it anyway, but it really is getting old. I mean, this is the first time I actually want to pick the fire starter before any other. I hope they get a little creative with it, or at the very least don't keep rehashing what they always do.

I hereby claim the starter Fennekin and its Evolutions for my first run of Pokemon X
Put this in your signature if you think Ruby and Sapphire deserve remakes! (started by Flare 64!)
70% of the Serebii population uses ultra powerful legendaries (also known as ubers) in their teams.
If you are one of the 30% that thinks outside the box and doesn't use ubers, copy and paste
this into your signature! (Started by SapphireL)
A Water/Poison starter would actually be amazing. I never thought of that but I'm going with what everyone else is saying, Water/Fighting. While Water/Poison might only have 3, Water/Fighting only has Keldeo. I am kinda sick of any type of Fighting starter though so a part of me hopes your right.

But isn't it OBVIOUS Froakie is Ice/water?! Does no one else see it?
anybody think we will get some gameplay or more starter info on smash today?
About Froakie, I really hope it won't become another fat, ugly Seismitod/Toxicroag and please let it stay four legs.. It has a lot of possibilities on design and typing, just hope not another Tepig--> Emboar abomination..

I can see wher eyou get the idea that froakie is ice/water, and it would make sense if game freak wanted to give it a fighting chhance against the grass type, but it's bubbles not frost, and the frost part of the name could also be the FROg part of the name, I mean they are the same.But isn't it OBVIOUS Froakie is Ice/water?! Does no one else see it?
Although I chose Fennekin on the poll, I see some potential in Froakie (just noticed its name is a combo of frog and SOAK).
Out of all the speculation coming with web sources and pictures, I liked the spec that said Froakie resembled some famous innovator/inventor (was it Benjamin Franklin?). I never noticed how those things on Froakie's face resembled spectacles.
And although the fanart for Fennekin's final evo (the one with the third eye) was awesome, it seems that that doesn't match the artists' styles.
For now I think Froakie's final evo will be a Water/Electric type since the cloud-like object on its back may grow bigger and darker to resemble a storm cloud, which would support the Benjamin Franklin hypothesis, since he discovered electricity.
This is just speculation; the cloud-like object may just grow to be a rain cloud, and the developers have the power to decide the game's course.
