    For the most part all grass starters are green, Chespin is mostly brown with green accents.

    Actually, upon seeing your sig, I'm more inclined to believe that Chespin is based on Bianca.

    But omg Fennekin is so cute, and I'm basing that solely on her official artwork and not on the fan art. I bought a large Fennekin plush doll and a small one, and I'm so happy. I was going to see if I could get a Froakie one as well, but they were sold out, which is odd considering how unpopular the little frog is, around these parts at least. Anyway I spent a lot more money than I usually would on Pokemon merchandise, but I wanted to be the first person in my town to have official Fennekin merchandise. I can't wait to get plush dolls of her evolved forms.~

    Hey y'all don't forget the fan art rule we have in place:
    Also, we know that this is the speculation thread and you are free to speculate the possible designs of the starters' evolutions. But we encourage everyone to please try and refrain from posting Fakemon without supporting the idea. At least elaborate on why you think the specific starter will evolve into such creatures.

    Most of y'all are not doing this and are simply posting fan art for the sake of posting it, this is considered spam and will be infracted. Also, if you're asking someone a personal question to someone that has nothing to do with the OP, then PM/VM them, as that is also considered spamming.

    Lolno I'll never admit to this bogus of Chespin & Oshawott/Dewott. They haz different tails, arms, and just two different species overall along with other features I may have missed. Some people just take a Pokemon design way too far.

    That is so, so true. Especially in recent times.

    They originally started out as the same species but they adapted for life in different environments.

    It's like Female Machoke and Male Lopunny, why can't we accept Machoke as Machoke or Lopunny as Lopunny without delving deeper into such stuff like this.

    IMO people are trying to put human pre-notions into pokemon. It doesn't work that way. They are different and the gender related thing also works differently.
    Anyway, anyone thinking that these starters will have a pure typing ? I can see that happen.

    i wouldn't be too upset about it though i'm hoping there will be the whole secondary typing that kills each other theory (that made no sense haha sorry)
    but idk i think the pure typing is kinda boring i mean don't get me wrong the Johto starters were fun but only to an extent

    I think Chennikin will get Normal, but that's just seeing Eevee.

    All three Pokemon look like past generations to me. (Seriously, the toad is like a miniature Seismitoad)

    Wait.. by Chennikin do u mean Fennekin or Chespin ?
    Anway, normal typing for a starter would be new and interesting, though there wuld be any advantage in competitive battling. But, I don't mind seeing it.

    the only advantage he could gain is a stronger facade due to it being a STAB which would be interesting for a starter pokemon running a facade set

    Agreed, I wouldn't mind Fennekin being Fire/Normal.

    Almost everyone want's it to be Fire/Psychic but really anything would be cool, except Fire/Fighting.

    Façade, Giga Impact, Take Down, Double Edge, Flareblitz, Flame Charge, Flamethrower, Hyper Beam STABs. Yeah, that would be decent. Even if Fennekin does end up as the type of our chagrin, it'll just need better speed and Sp. Attack than Infernape to be a good competitive Pokémon.

    i would leave my Fennekin in the breeding center and leave him there forever if he ever became one -_- i think infernape was enough
    but i think an interesting typing people have mentioned earlier is Fire/Flying...i think it's cause his ears are huge like sky forme shaymin

    Froakie looks nothing like Seismitoad, none of the starters has any significant resemblance to past Pokemon.

    I agree, the comparisons get old. It's like comparing the many real life species of frogs/toads/etc. It's just plain dumb. It's a different species, and will be used in a different way.

    This is just my opinion, if you don't support the main character of the show, why bother watching.

    That'd be another Charizard typing and death to Stealth Rock... personally I'd like to see fresh typings that haven't been used for starters yet.

    Yes, either Fire/Ground, or Fire/Psychic. Fire/Ground is the one I'm hoping for, to complete the trio of Ground type starters, since we already have Torterra and Swampert.

    I would probably choose Fenekin, unless one of the others are faster, somebody tell me which starter is the fastest

    The most of us (The ones who talk about stats anyway) believe and hope Froakie will be the fastest one.

    The speculation is based in how the trailer felt in terms of "characterization" of each starter and decades of slow water starters.

    Let me just say this:

    Is Fire/Fighting starters really that scary?
