    I'd like to see a Lion pokemon - with a mane... That would be cool. Have we had that yet? I'm going through all 600+ pokemon in my head but can't think of one...

    Ok, so anyone with half a brain would already know this, but for those who don't, Im'ma lay down some knowledge for you guys. Pokemon is owned by Nintendo, but they do not develop the games, they merely publish them. Gamefreak is the developer of the (main series) pokemon games, but they are not owned by Nintendo. TPCI/TCPJ markets the Pokemon games, and is partnered with Nintendo like Gamefreak. Every time I see someone complaining about Nintendo ruining the Pokemon games and that they just need to die, it just makes my blood boil. I mean, how can some people be so ignorant? It boggles the mind.

    How's that a problem when Growlithe and Arcanine are clearly dogs and are in no way feline?

    I can agree with seeing a Fire-type lion, but not as a starter. The only issue I could see with that is that I would love to see gender differences at the last stage, which is something that hasn't been done for starters.

    ArCANINE is a canine, not a feline. Besides, we already have multiple Pokémon of the same animal species, so there would be no issue with having another lion Pokemon if one already existed.

    You seem to be forgetting that Pokemon is a Japanese video game series.

    And in Japan, where Pokemon comes from, Arcanine is called Windie.

    But anyway about THESE starters they all seem like they might stay on the small side, Chespin being the bigest most likely at the end.

    * I don't get what Arcanine being named Windie in Japan has anything to do with anything..

    If anyone is going to end up being big, it'll most likely be Froakie or Chespin.

    According to Bulbagarden it's just to reflect that it's fast.

    I am hoping Froakie is a little more then 3 feet like Infernape, but yeah Chespin is the big daddy tank this gen IMO

    How so? Are you talking about aesthetics or competition?

    Personally, I can see Froakie and Fennekin both ending up big in aesthetics, while Chespin looks like it may end up big in competition out of the three.

    lolipiece was just saying that Arcanine's name doesn't mean it's 100%CANINEOMG just because its name is Arcanine. When the creators of the damn game are, gasp, Japanese! Arcanine bears resemblance to the Chinese fu dog, which is based on a LION.

    I don't see why people think all freaking Pokemon are one animal and one animal alone. Especially based off of names. English names, at that. It's incredibly disappointing to see users think they are so spot on to prove something. Ugh.

    I was mainly getting on Gapauchii, sorry. I was quoting you because you asked why lolipiece even mentioned the name Windie.

    First, baconrules had the Christian bit in his/her signature. And you comment on it in a Pokemon thread? Religion, really? And, secondly, if you're not a Christian and there's only one religion, the number 666 would have no significance to your Pokemon religion. Because 666 is associated with Christianity, which you don't believe. So I'm not sure what the point of that tidbit was.

    You're cool haha.


    ~So something I've noticed is the lack of people speculating pure types for the starters evos this gen. Normally I would think it foolish to not give pure Water/Fire/Grass some thought, but... Water and Grass have had pure typings 3 out of 5 generations while Fire has had it just once. One time have Fire starter fans had to deal with the pure typing. I'm not the biggest fan, just because of the type I prefer. Grass is my favorite typing. And almost always another type given to it helps to negate some weaknesses. Or at least give it another STAB. Fire, on the other hand, just ends up being an offensive powerhouse every time around and gets another typing. Though, I suppose I can't whine too much about it when it has seen Fire/Fighting three times in a row now haha.

    Back to starters,
    I'd imagine this set of starters to not balance each other out, unlike popular non-veteran demand.

    It's okay if Chespin is Grass/Rock and Fennekin is Pure Fire, or Grass/Fighting and Fire/Dark respectively, but the point of starters is to have someone better than you.
    'Someone will always be better than you, and that's okay.' is the point of having a rival human and a rival Pokémon because that stresses the point of becoming better than your rival. (Well, Geno, the fifth gen rivals weren't THAT difficult.)

    Yeah I see Fennekin as the most likely to be pure type IMO. I can see how people see pyschic type too but the fire starters to need their turn being pure as well. I know the rumors and all but Chespin looks to cute and inocent to be dark type, I like grass/rock myself for his typing. Froakie is my starter for sure and type wise I think it will be water/fighting but I can also see maybe water/dark.

    While it looks cute doesn't mean it can't change personality upon evolution. If I'm right Chespin has a personality that gets itself in trouble at times.

    Veteran? Sorry to say but your opinion on starter types should be has nothing to do with how long you've played the series.

    I wondered about that, how many none dark types pokedex entries state that they get into touble? But that face... it's so cute. I mean Mawile is claimed to be deceptive and isn't a dark type but I don't know.... and look at Chespins face it's so cute.. I really can't tell lol.

    You know, Fire being more of a Stall-Tank than attacker tank would bring some spice to the Fire type (puns, Geno!).

    Bulky fire Pokémon are already rare in general, so having a bulky Fire starter with better defensive stats whilst maintaining a powerfully wide movepool would be really interesting!

    Now that I look back, I chose Fennekin on the survey. Now I wish i could go back and choose Froakie or Chespin because they seem like much more interesting concepts.

    Well, frogs and foxes are over done too much... so Chespin somewhat motivates me to choose it...
