    I wonder how many pokedex entires talk about getting into trouble that aren't dark types? But I still font see how Chespin could be dark, seems weird to me.

    Well... My theory for last evos...

    Fennekin
    Fire/Dark
    Since Fennec foxes are nocturnal animals, I can clearly see a cuadrupedal, glammazonic, flames-themed fox, with this escense of mystery and eleganza that we can see puoring out Fennekin's ear fluffs (lol) about color schemes, I can see more red, light black, intense orange and some white...

    Chespin
    Grass/Steel
    Parting from the idea of a hard chestnut, and discharting Rock type, the "hardest" type I can think of is Steel, I can imagine a hard-shelled knight in its shiny green chestnut armor, with some advanced deffensive system on its back, in the shape of a porcupin's needle-back, but with glances of nature. not all steel types have to be metalic, sylver/gray or robotic like.. Mawhile, Lucario, HIRACHI... so... not that crazy for a Chestknight...

    and... Froakie (my fav)
    Water/Fighting
    Gamakitchi, Gamatatsu? Naruto's huge sword-wielder toad? so.. apart from that reference, to me, Froakie will be Ninja themed, so Fighting type fits just fine.. Besides Froakie looks like one of those japanese thieves, with gloves, backpack and a knot in its nose, all I can extract from that its the speed, accuracy and lethalness... so... Ninja Toad to me Plee-s!!

    Hmm fluff in ears, hard shell in back, and foam around its neck. After some thought and look into these starters species they are based on, I think I got a good guess on these starter's typing:
    Fennekin could just be plan old Fire type. I see that some of it features spread from ground to psychic to even dark. I think GF will play it safe and make this one another pure fire type starter.
    And (please don't flame me for this) could it be likely that IF fairy type is real, that Fennekin will be a Fire/Fairy type?
    Chespin on the other hand still leans me to Grass/Steel or Grass/Rock as its description and even actions depict a young learning hero type Pokemon. Many warriors in European history would
    act a bit over confident, and sometimes that lead to their defeat. So maybe we will see a Chespin knight. Hell maybe that knight stature we saw was Chespin's final evo? Just a guess.
    Frokie looks to be a Ninja to me, since Toads are mostly portrayed as fighters or Ninja's in most Japanese pop cultures, I'd expect none less. But I do feel a vibe of a Water/Dark or Water/Fighting type
    to play in. Hell my friends even think will will see a Water/Poison type.

    Knowing gamefreak th final evolutions might not even be dual-typed. All of this speculation of Fire/Psychic, Grass/Dark, and Water/Fighting (Just using as exmaples) and all we get are basic elemental starters.

    You just wrote the same I posted before your post hehehe so, I wouldnt disagree with u... At first I said, "Froakie.. hum.. Water/Poison" cuz I saw a dart frog in my backyard some time ago (I live too near the Amazon) it was blue, white, black and with yellow eyes, so froakie-ish.. by then, there wasnt any x y news, so I didnt gave it relevance.. but.. well.. I'll rather a Water/Fighting Konoha-Senin Frog! hehehe

    Now that everyone's guessed every possible secondary type each of the 6th gen starters have, I'd like to propose the idea that maybe they're just going to be Grass, Fire, & Water. And personally, I'd be quite content with that (Although, I'm hoping they do have secondary types).

    Pure types would be fine by me. It would be the first time since Gen II that it has happened as well.

    I really like this starter trio. At first look, Fennekin was my favorite, but soon, Chespin became the one I like the most.
    They all have a great design, especially Chespin, with its colors and head.
    Fennekin is cute and it is great to have a fox Pokemon as a starter, I think.
    Froakie is also very adorable I think, with its big eyes. It looks kinda fun too.

    I'm really looking forward to their evolutions. About Chespin, I think that Grass/Rock could be possible, since its colors indicates, that it could have something to do with the Ground. It's head also looks like it could turn out to be a shield. Also, as shown in the pre-release picture, it learns rollout very early, and Grass/Rock would also be a new type combo for a starter Pokemon.

    Like many others, I can imagine Fennekin to be Fire/Psychic. I don't really have a clue about Froakie. Perhaps just pure Water.
    In fact, they can all 3 turn out to be single types, like Chikorita' Cyndaquil and Totodile were.
    If you are looking for XY Wi-Fi battles I'm always ready so just give me a shout!

    About Chespin, take a look back at Tepig:
    - Red/Orange and Black are its primary colors: Did it become a Dark-type? Nope.
    - Tepig got to learn Rollout very early in its moveset as well: Did it become a Rock-type? Nope.
    - Tepig learned Smog very early in its moveset: Not a Poison-type either.

    Chespin is brown because its based on a hedgehog, and hedgehogs not named Sonic are in fact brown. It's like saying Squirtle could've become Water/Rock because its shell is sandy/brown colored..

    No one knows what it will be yet. That's just my personal thought. No one would have guessed Tepig to be another Fighting type, but it did.
    I just think that Grass/Rock for Chespin would be interesting, since it will be something different.

    Someone might have mentioned this earlier and I might just be late with it (as usual), but I wonder if the brown dot in the back part of Chespin's head means anything? Here:



    It weirdly only on the other side of the head - I don't know, could something grow out of it?
    EDIT: When I say "grow out of it", I mean something being visible in Chespin's evolutions of course

    It's probably nothing significant. But yes, it is interesting.

    I saw a fanmade Chespin evolution, where a tree was shooting out of it's backhead. Of course it has nothing to do with anything real since it is fanmade, but the idea could be an option with this "dot" on Chespins backhead.

    Maybe Chespin will learn Shell Smash
    that would be pretty sick. With Chlorophyll. He'll be the next Omastar.

    Here's my prediction:

    Chespin: Grass/Steel or Grass/Rock with the highest attack, above average defense, and medium speed. Will look like a warrior or knight.
    Fennekin: Fire/Psychic or pure Fire with the highest special attack and special defense and lower speed compared to the other 2. Will have a wizardly sort of look.
    Froakie: Water/Fighting, Water/Dark, or Water/Poison with equal stats in both attack and special attack and the highest speed of the 3. Will look like a ninja, thief, or rogue.

    Together the 3 of them will cover the 3 basic fantasy classes. If it ends up being kinda like this I'm definitely going to try to get all 3 starters for my play through.

    There's a rumor already and if it's true
    fire/psychic water/fighting grass/dark
    they can't get enough of part fighting starters

    All grass starters evolve to grow with a plant on them
    venasaur has the the massive plant, meganium has the plant around it's neck, sceptile has the the seeds and the tail is a plant too, torterra has the forest and serperior has leaves not many but it does
    so the nut thing on it's head will probably be what groes on it

    I must be the only one who actually likes Froakie the most.
    Something about it just intrigues me...
    IDK. I guess I just always choose the underdogs.
