    for me I haven't voted but that's because I can't decide chespin or Fennekin?
    That's because the only ones left on this page right now is us die hard Froakie fans. Sure people love Fennekin and chespin but us Froakie fans are crazy dedicated (or just crazy)

    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.
    But the dex entry for Chespin says that it hardens the spikes on its back, so..?

    You've chosen Piplup? Iew!/sarcasm...

    Mčh, without kidding, these were my choices I can remember for initial playthroughs:
    - Kanto: Can't remember.. Must've been Charmander or Bulbasaur.
    - Johto: Decided to trade with a buddy in order to get the full set, which left me with Chikorita as the 'official' starter, and my rival with a Cyndaquil, though I used my Cynda&Totodile more.
    - Hoenn: Never had a GBA, but I had an emulator on PC, which meant that it didn't really matter which I chose, I could just GameShark the ones I didn't pick, hence, I had the full set, but I remember using Torchic the most, eventhough I remember having quite an awesome Swampert and Sceptile as well.
    - Sinnoh: Had an DS, had buddies to trade with, hence, I took Chimchar and Turtwig as my starters, with Turtwig being the official one. Meaning my game was devoid of Piplup for most of it.
    - Unova: Oshawott. But managed to trade a Snivy and Tepig over, which became more prominent members on my team, while Seismitoad took over from Samurott eventually.

    Like how Emboar, Serperior and Samurott had anything to do with American culture? No. Serperior was based off French royalty, Emboar based off the hog in Chinese literature, and Samurott was based off Japanese Samurai.

    I don't want a France overload. Yes, designwise, I'm fine with the map and the residents looking a bit more French, but the designs should remain universally inspired.

    I'm planning on having all three starters on one of my teams (at different evolutionary stages) for one of my main teams, which is something I haven't wanted to do since generation ii

    I see no spikes on its back..? The only ones on show are the ones on its head and they do not seem that pointy.

    However, if you do mean the head ones, as it was mentioned to stiffen them, then I do not think that is all that hedgehog like.. (As many animals have spikes on their heads)

    But okay, I will accept that many people think it is a hedgehog and that it may indeed be one!

    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
    No, Cyndaquil is not a hedgehog. It is shape of an echidna and posted as a fire mouse.

    I'm probably going to get X AND Y in English, and then one of the two in Japanese, Spanish or German (to increase the chances of breeding shiny eggs, and I actually know a little of each of those three languages. lol) Then each starter can be represented.

    Has anyone noticed that Pancham and Chespin look like they could be from Happy Tree Friends? lol

    Miltank is said to have fur, but the fur isn't readily visible.
    Altaria shows no feathers. The argument is invalid. He still has spikes down his back.

    Good luck with that because the 3DS is region locked and you would need multiple 3DS from different regions.

    Altaria has 5 tail feathers, two feathers on its head and the cloud-like wings are white feathers?
    As for the miltank.. you got me, but fur is barely ever shown on pokemon, you just kinda assume they have it.

    And I am gonna assume you are joking about Chespin still having spikes on its back

    Who says it doesn't? It very well could. They're probably just not visible just like fur and could possibly grow out when it evolves.

    Okay, head ones.. And I should admit that I was a bit iffed about it myself. The Japanese name very much directly links to hedgehogs. Species names might be inaccurate (Blastoise =/= Shellfish), but the Japanese names are more often clear about what it is supposed to be.

    Probably, I just guessed on the back/head part.. I was winging it.. yet I have no feathers! :O

    Must just be 3DS GAMES which are locked, not the 3DS itself. Because I've been having no problem at all playing Japanese DS games on my American 3DS.
    Why would they put the lock back on after making a big deal about removing it?

    That's exactly what I am getting at, it's there, we're just supposed to assume it is.

    Chespin having spikes on its back is definitely plausible personally. If I remember no one suspected the Scalchop on Oshawott's body was actually used as a weapon when first revealed or thought it meant nothing.

    Well the spikes are clearly not visible on chespins back when stationary in battle, nor were they brought out when it used its attack... There is nothing pointing to it being able to protrude spikes from its back.

    Yes, you could give the whole "well they haven't said that it can't produce spikes from its back", but really? Gamefreak haven't said that magmar doesn't have wings, but we know it doesn't.

    I agree, it could happen, I just think it is unlikely for Chespin.

    I did say it doesn't have to be visible. Miltank's fur doesn't shoot out in different directions when it attacks, does that mean it doesn't have fur?

    I never said that little quote and I wouldn't, because it's a stupid argument and completely irrelevant.

    why is it unlikely exactly? It does say after all that it has spikes on it in it's description. So it has come straight from GF, so it's safe to say that Chespin has spikes.

    Most pokemon don't show fur, but through the generations we have established that we are just meant to accept that they do have it. (Probably laziness on their part)

    Yes, chespin has spikes.. on it head.
    The Grass-type Pokémon Chespin has a tough shell covering its head and back. Despite having a curious nature that tends to get it in trouble, Chespin keeps an optimistic outlook and doesn't worry about small details. <-- That is all that was on Chespin on the Pokemon website, no mention of spikes though?

    Chespin, the Chestnut Pokemon, is covered by a hard shell on its head and back that it uses to protect itself from attacks. It is able to make the spikes on its head shell sharper by focusing its energy. It knows Tackle, Growl, Vine Whip, and Rollout. <--- From Corocoro(?) and only mention them on the head.

    o.k if you don't agree with this then you're stupid and read this 3 times so you get exactly what i'm saying before you reply with something stupid that I clearly didn't mean
    Chespin might have spikes but you can't see them cuz they could be cactus spikes short spiky and can't be seen head on
    these spikes that might exist would grow on evolution
    if you reply with something that I didn't mean I'll correct and tell you to read it again!

    Exactly. We have no way of knowing what Chespin can or can't do, especially when it's evolutions haven't even been revealed.

    I really do hope the evolutions and their types get announced soon. There is a good chance that the spikes on Chespin's head will grow on evolution. Maybe grows all over the back and it can hide itself into a ball much like a hedgehog or something... This is all conjecture since we have nothing to go on...

    I think at E3 they will announce a few new pokemon and maybe release stater evos I mean E3 is about halfway to the realease and would be an excellent way to show of the evolution animation for pokemon X and Y.

    Chespin do have spikes. They are clearly visable on his head. Only, they are only spikes when he's batteling, apparantly (as seen on the main Pkmn site). ^^ I think you can also see them get sharp when he attacks in the trailers.

    I've yet to see fire from Fennekin's ears, though.
    Is apparantly Dragon Type in the Friend Safari. Neat.
