    Not sure about that...

    I'm actually really hoping that's the case, it would be kinda cool. But how often does Game Freak tap into other franchises for inspiration? (not sarcasm actual question!)

    Edit: Take that back. Froakie would have to change a lot. And it would be a little weird.

    That one's a first for me. I've heard many speculations about Froakie, but Ireally don't know what to make of any of them.

    That's fair, it was a suggestion that I wanted to share with you guys since it sounded interesting.

    As for Chespin, a ninja would be interesting to see for it, though I can't help but feel it's going to be tanky like Torterra and Venusaur before it.

    Btw everyone jiraiya is an actual mythical figure in japan,, so it is entirely possible if froakie is based off a theif that later evolutions become ninja-like.

    It looks more on the fast side to me, as do the other two. If it ends up being Grass / Dark, Rock, or Ground, I could see it being bulky or offensive.

    That's good, I'd like Chespin to look like something! I honestly don't see the chestnut thing. He looks like a weird Oshawott like squirrel with a really bad haircut. That's green. That's the best I can think of.

    Meant that I wasn't sure on that topic lol.

    I also feel that it will be a slow tank, but I think it'll be more like Swampert where it's not entirely slow(like Torterra). Then I think Fennekin will become a decently fast with awesome special attack, and that Froakie will be a super fast physical/decently mixed attacker.

    If it is I fighting than I hope I's a special attacker because there are only 3 fighting types that can do special attacks: Lucario Infernape Keldeo

    That sounds reasonable to me, actually. I could see Chespin's hidden ability boosting its speed in sunlight or something. Chlorophyll I think?

    seriously!
    And Toxicroak with Nasty Plot, but that's another story. Maybe it will have both decent Attack and Sp. Attack(Around 90for each)? I honestly don't mind if it's physical or special or both, I just want it to be the speedy Pokemon of this bunch.

    Edit: @^ Or Iron Barbs since it has all those spikes.

    I'm thinking stats like Zoroark but maybe with high HP to bring it's base state total up to the average starter range

    I was planning on naming my Froakie "Jiraiya". XD It was because he looked ninja-like to me and I thought of Jiraiya from Naruto, which makes me hope he turns out to be Water/Fighting. The thief look makes him seem like he could turn out /Dark though.

    Sp. Def:70
    Speed:120

    I think Froakie will either be a speedy attacker or a speedy mixed attacker.
    Here's what I think will be Froakie's final stats. Total: 520 either way.

    Ooh that would fortify it defensively. I can't help but look at the claws and think "Hone Claws" though, so I'm still thinkinthat it could be an attacker.

    Yeah, I'm starting to think it will be a bipedal, 65 base speed version of Torterra.

    Chespin is cool. I might name him Chestnuts or Chester.

    I actually hope Fennakin is another fire/fighting type because I work well with that combo.

    Finally, Froakie...creeps meowth(see what I did there?). But if I see his evolution line, I might try it.

    Fire/Fighting is way to over used fire on starters!

    Only reason I don't see Froakie as a special attacker is due to Fennekin likely becoming Fire/Psychic, and the fact that Fennekin used all Special moves(unconfirmed) in the preview. If Fennekin isn't a Special attack, I could go for this.

    I just hope it would have a better fighting special attack than vacuum wave and focus miss

    I'm pretty sure you're alone on that one. Everyone is thinking Fire or Fire/Psychic, because it looks like a special sweeper.

    And that was a horrible pun. I might have to try it out some time...

    Maybe there will be some new ones that it could learn? Anywho, I do see it either learning Focus Blast or Aura Sphere through level up if either of our stat predictions end up coming close to what happens.

    I think it'll be a Physical attacker with huge bulk, like Torterra, but just a little faster.
