    yeah i am not too keen on that idea either

    We're all aware of that. We're talking about their evolved forms.

    If you read the whole thing, Nintendo actually said that the base form of the starters are confirmed to be pure fire/grass/water typing, not the 1st or 2nd stage evolutions.

    Any other ones that seem logical, that you guys can come up with?

    Possible ones to me, design wise seem to be:
    Rock(Chespin) ice(froakie) ground(fennekin)
    Steel(Chespin) ice(froakie) ground(fennekin)
    Ground(Chespin) ice(froakie) fire(fennekin)
    Rock(Chespin) flying(froakie) fighting(fennekin)
    Grass(Chespin) ice(froakie) rock(fennekin)
    Grass(Chespin) flying(froakie) rock(fennekin)
    I posted this earlier
    And I have to say my favorite one is ground ice and steel one
    Simply because I can really see it design wise
    Chespin hat turning into armor
    Fennekin been fennec fox
    And froakie could easily go ice design by evolution.

    I'm hoping for a water/fight type evo for Froakie that has the body style like Infernape.
    (Slim, humanoid and fast)

    I'm definitely picking Fennekin as my first Gen 6 starter, though Froakie also looks like he could be interesting. I personally wouldn't mind if his final evolution ended up looking somewhat like Zephos from Zelda: The Wind Waker:

    The person you quotes said he is NOT one to complain and doesn't mind the double weakness to water, yet you say not so keen "either". I'm guessing you misread his post though :P

    I disagree that that would be the only good thing, since ground type moves are super effective against many types, so having a good one that early will be great. It also removes the weakness to Rock type moves. And even though Grass types won't be "not very effective" anymore, he will still have the advantage with Fire type moves. A really good type in my opinion, I just don't like Camerupt because of its speed stat mainly, and his design isn't great. I would love a fast Fire/Ground with good design.

    I want the starters to have a weakness to each other, like Froakie's second type is bad against Chespin's second type, that way we all get neutral damage.

    Desert could also mean an Arctic Desert, thus we have our Fire/Ice type.

    My god, it's Pokemon. Why does a realistic side even exist? I mean, Blastoise is a Shellfish, Psyduck is a platypus, and we have 10 year olds beating up each other's pets with magic abilities. I think that a Fennec Fox crossed with an Arctic Fox to make an evo is fine in my book. But with a Fire/Ice type, that's a x4 weakness on Chespin's part, if he stays pure Grass.

    I'm hoping that:

    Chespin will become a Pyshical Tank, so Grass/Steel would be nice... Yet Ferrothorn says Hi! But a Physical Grass/Dark sweeper is highly wanted... But Shiftry... I like the 2nd more.

    Fennekin will become a Special Sweeper, and have Fire/Psychic. I mean come. ON! It uses a Psychic-like move, has a majestic feel to it... and desert Pokemon usually become this, ground/rock/steel, or both. Fire takes the Sunny part of the desert, yet Ground takes away two of Fenn's restitances (Ice and Grass, which are slaughtered by fire.) but loses it's weakness to Rock, which makes it fairly good. ELectric immunity's good aswell... Meh, as long as it's one of these two and a Special/Physical Sweeper, I'm honestly not giving two shizzbitz.

    Froakie gets an awesome mustache. Mustaches makes everything good.

    ^To the above poster. Fire and Ice cancel eachother out in reality. Fire melts Ice, yet the melted ice (water) kills fire. A Pokemon like this would probably not be organic, as it'd be hard to icorparate both on a living creature.

    I think Chespin will be a physical sweeper, not a tank.

    Just because these type combos have been done before doesn't mean they can't be done again. Swampert was Water/Ground despite Quagsire existing. It is notable that, besides Fire/Fighting being repeated twice(exclusively to starters) and Swampert that it hasn't happened before. Still, I'd like to see a Grass/Steel type as its marginally better defensively than Grass/Dark which has iirc 6 weaknesses.

    It's a hedgehog. They use their spines for defence. Chespin's spines harden into Steel armour giving it large defence and attack. Boom, Grass/Steel type. imo, either this or pure Grass seems most likely. Grass/Dark speculation is just people trying to impose the Dark/Fighting/Psychic triangle on everything.

    You mean Grass/Dark. There is literally nothing hinting at that but people mostly say it should be that typing. Chestnut's can be very hard which gives a nod to steel types.

    Yes that is a Female Dino Charge Red. It's a FanFic thing

    if its head leaves/spines become steel it wont have the growing plant motif that all grass starters have.

    no i meant grass/steel many people have said that and i dint understand where it was coming from. im one of those people that thinks it will become a grass/dark because it use a dark type move that looks like night slash in the video.

    Both types will only do x2 damage so it doesn't make a difference really :P Fire/Ice would be a cool type, although I doubt it happening looking at the design of the first type. It can, however, (and has in the past) have a surprising evolution. I would like the Ground/Fire as well. The thing I dislike about Fire/Ice is that it adds more weaknesses than super effective offense coverage.

    If Froakie does have a moustache then it better have gender differences like the female without a moustache or just a really small one.

    I just really think the trailer already practically revealed the secondary types of the starters.

    I mean why else would they have Fennekin use a fire attack and then a psychic attack, or Chespin a grass attack and then a dark attack (come on there is really no other type that would have that black/red background with a purple attack), or Froakie using a water attack and then use a Fighting (or Flying, this is the only ambiguous one).

    So even though they haven't been officially announced, Fire/Psychic, Grass/Dark, and Water/Fighting (or Water/Flying!) are clearly being foreshadowed.

    thank you! i agree. all 3 starters used 2 attacks one of their respective type and a secondary type it could not have been anymore obvious. i think froakie was using close combat.

    These are the types that I wouldn't matter to see, personnally.

    Fennekin.
    Fire - This is the base. At least a pure Fire type won't bother me, but it's still not my favorite, though.
    Fire / Psychic - Definitely my favorite of all. That looks great, indeed.
    Fire / Flying - If it's not with giant wings, it would be okay. Being like Tropius (or Shaymin's Sky Form), an on earth Pokémon, but still Flying type, would be awesome!
    Fire / Ice - Looks impossible, but it's just beautiful.

    Froakie.
    Water - Well, I don't want another prue Water Type, but it's a base. We have to count it.
    Water / Fighting - My favorite, it's an awesome combination, and an unexpecting evolution, too!
    Water / Ice - Not bad, but Water Types naturally can learn Ice Type move. Having a STAB on it, why not ?

    Chespin.
    Grass - As the others, it's a base. But since we've got a pure one in the past generation, it would be my least favorite combination.
    Grass / Steel - This is my favorite one. Of course, I hope Chespin's evolution could be fast. That's really interesting.
    Grass / Dark - My second favorite. I would totally like it. Since it's a great match with Chespin, it would be awesome!
