    If Fokko's a special attacker, then that might kind of suck for it. :/

    I feel like confustion and psybeam should be switched. IIRC, Confusion has base power 50 and Psybeam has base power 65.

    This always happens.We speculate too much and when we finally get to see the evos we're like "Whaaaa?I hate them!" then... "I love them!They're awesome."

    Complete conjecture, but this is my award-winning (and eclectic) theory on the types of the starters (and their symbolic representation):

    Fennekin: Origin based on the Flying Fox of Shintoism. RPG Mage Fire/Psychic.

    Chespin: Origin based on I honestly don't know. RPG Warrior. Grass/Fighting.

    Froakie: Origin based on the dorobou AKA Japanese thief. RPG Thief. Water/Dark.

    These are all loosely based, but there is connective tissue between these theories, regardless of the basis for their origin. Others have spawned the Japanese Flying Fox theory, as well I borrowed the dorobou theory. I spawned myself a theory of the classic RPG roles, which are easily reflected by the types Fighting/Psychic/Dark, which also reflect a rock-paper-scissors-like effect similar to Grass/Water/Fire. Going by Samurott (Japan), Emboar (China), and Serperior (West) and the connections they share in the contrasts among them, I also assume that the pattern my be upkept, and that is why I indulged in a delicious theory such as this.

    The Squirtle University of Weather Research has taught me a lot.

    The grass/dark chespin set is SWEET and i hope he's physical, well as its just sheer preference for me. The others are good too, especially froakies, it is interesting to say the least.

    And I agree we do speculate starter evos a bit too much. Because then when they are revealed, we all have built up a picture of what they SHOULD look like. Then we say 'Im na usin dat, its a enlarged jynx painted blue.' But nothing the less I really am anticipating their reveal, and will speculate.

    Im unusure about froakie, will he be physical or special?

    Fennekin Vulpix Ninetales Zoroark and Zorua are the foxes I know of. Meanwhile...

    Froakie Croagunk Toxicroak Politag Poliwhirl Politoad, and theres bound to be others I didn't say.

    Your point being? People just like the way it looks, I assume. Theres only 5 fox pokemon (Atleast, that I know of, and counting just fennekin by itself.)

    I love them too, the Fire/Psychic one of Fennekin is nice, must admit.

    You make me think about a Fire/Flying moveset, but my head is spinning when I start thinking about all the moves those starter could have...

    That's the reason why I like it. Take a look at my name, then put two and two together.

    Because it looks like the birthchild of a demon and a kitten?

    You guys have to stop saying this. Maybe Chespin will be the most marketable, but that doesn't mean Chespin's like Oshawott. First, they only have in common the round face and their cute face. That's all. Chespin isn't Oshawott, while Oshawott isn't Chespin.

    Except the fact that it's not related to Oshawott in any circumstance. Chespin has different everything except for the bipedal stand and round faces. Hell Chespin could run quadruped for all we know.

    I'm using common sense here. It has a human shaped body with a round head and hot dog like torso. That alone makes it easier to hug and play with than the other 2 where fennekin has 4 legs and froakie's porportions nit being as hug friendly.

    This was probably said a long time ago, but I was playing Pokemon Black 2 and one of my team members used Aerial Ace.
    It looks strikingly similar to the move Chespin used in the trailer.

    What if Chespin has a feature where spikes are pointed around its body and it's been under our noses? I can't see that being huggable.

    You nay think those 2 are more huggable. Heck maybe most people on the internet think Fennekin is the cutest. But the little kids are used to buying plushies with basic shapes like chespin and will go for what is familiar. Nintendo knows this and will make chespin the most overmarketed.Just like oshawott.

    That's correct, but it doesn't mean Chespin is like Oshawott in the other ways. Maybe Chespin will be the most marketable, just like Piplup, Oshawott. It's normal. There is always a starter that we would prefer to have as a plushy than another. But that doesn't mean that Chespin is the Oshawott of the Generation VI.

    Here is a twist!

    What

    if

    the starters

    are marketed

    equally?
