    how is it a hedgehog? if anything cyndaquil is a hedgehog I mean cynaquil and quilava but yeah it's a rat
    regardless I just don't see how chespin is a hedgehog but maybe it'll be more like one when it evolves actually if it does then it'll have to be more awesome than sceptile and better than fennekin or my choice will (for the 5th time) be fire

    Chespin's Japanese name is a pun of Hedgehog. And Cyndaquil is a echidna, actually. ^^
    Is apparantly Dragon Type in the Friend Safari. Neat.

    chespin is a hedgehog

    It is most definitely not a squirrel. the name has no matter, also not to mention it's description is reminiscent to that of a hedgehog.

    Plus look at the the translations of some of its other names.

    Also Chesnut + Pin = Chespin

    To be honest.. defining feature of hedgehogs are the spikes right?
    Well Chespin doesn't have any? Not too sure whether we can count the things on its head as they are not exactly spiky... Nor do they fulfill the defensive role that real hedgehogs spikes do.

    Soooooooooo

    Chespinrito has a high possibility of gaining rock as a secondary type upon evolution.

    I have a feeling Foxykin will be part dark type upon evolution.

    The froakster will probably be part fighting, flying, ice, psychic, or electric. Either of these are possible secondary types for the frog.

    I still don't know which one I am going to choose.
    I like froakie, but I have chosen the water starter the past three generations.
    I guess I will have to wait and see how epic thrir final evolutions look.
    We all make mistakes, but the biggest one we can make is not learning from them.

    It is a grass type.. those look like they could be leaves.
    And anyway, even if they were spikes... spikes on head does not = hedgehog.

    When Chespin is batteling, the 'leaves' gets hard and pointy. So, spikes. ^^

    Can we just agree that they are leaf spikes and move on?

    they are spikes though.
    and besides his description also screams hedgehog and i never said that absolutely means he is a hedgehog, but it is a contributing factor. he shows key characteristics of one, and he is a hedgehog. I don't know why this is still a debate

    His name is CHES-PIN. The green hoodie he looks to be wearing is clearly based on the outer-shell of a chestnut and with Pin being in his name to, it just reinforces them to be spikes - his orange tipped tail also lending itself to the outer-shell of a chestnuts stalk like thingy... I would not be surprised if the creature he is based on has pin/spike/point like features (or even potentially loses the outer shell in the end. (perhaps using it as a weapon/shield/detachable Armour...though that is very Oshawott of the species - but it's not like Osha has dibbs on the idea..)

    @Hankka
    But, what I meant was that they ARE leaf spikes...

    @Zorocario
    Not sure if it's suppose to be "pointy". You poor man. D:

    For some of you that haven't seen this (I believe it was posted in this thread at some point), take a look. The chinkapin plant. An evergreen species that can be found in Japan. The nut resembles an acorn and chestnut. Why, hello there. Very interesting stuff. (: And, of course, the name chinkapin is incredibly close to Chespin. Both the beginning and end of Chespin's name.

    I suppose I don't have to answer your question since everyone else hopped on it. :S The Japanese name and other foreign names refer to it being a hedgehog. And... It looks like it. Simple enough.

    alright so I guess it's a hedgehog but you have to admit it looks a liittle like a squirrel right?
    And yes I was right along cyndaquil is like a hedgehog too, earlier this year bulbapedia said all the fire starters are from their zodiac charmander - dragon cyndaquil - rat torchic - rooster (or chicken) chimchar - monkey tepig - pig but it's wrong! And grass starters were all reptile thank Arceus they changed it to a mammal for once

    Oh Lord... I sense a Pokémon/Sonic game coming...

    Chespin = Sonic
    Cyndaquil = Knuckles
    Buizel = Tails
    Eggman = Togepi, of course :3 (or Chansey)

    Genius.

    Seriously, though, I think it would be good if the starters all evolved into something related to France. I don't know much about France mythology/French culture, so I won't be putting forward any ideas on this. Maybe Froakie's evo could be Water/Ghost with its back becoming a clear, gassy cloud and its legs also becoming clear.

    Chespin is a hedgehog. Its other names refer to it being a hedgehog, so you can't necessarily always use the English name to determine the etymology of the Pokémon. Use the Japanese.

    Taken from Bulbapedia:
    Harimaron is a combination of 蝟 harinezumi (hedgehog), 針 hari (needle), and marron (French for chestnut).

My decision on which I like most will be swayed heavily by what their evolutionary forms look like... not to mention their attacks.
    I LOVE Froakie too...! Im a Grass-type freaky, but.. this time, Froakie's expressionless face touched my heart, since Im basically a oblivious man, he looks like the pokemon to me. I may not even evolve it! I just like that "Freakie"

    I find it weird that all everyone says is they're picking froakie but in the poll fennekin's winning by a landslide
    for me I haven't voted but that's because I can't decide chespin or Fennekin?
