    HAHAHAHA that was hilarious actually, well the tread is just about X and Y starters, I don't think pokemon will be retyped to old times, doesn't make much sense, plus I doubt a starter is ever getting dragon typing but I guess I can actually see something random with Meganium gaining Fairy type for example but if they won't give a dragon type they probably won't give a type strong against it, so Ice and Fairy will probably not be part of a starter line either.

    Just like any other game, it's going to be hard.
    There's always the one that only 10 (not literally) and the others are getting THOUSANDS
    But I picked Fennekin. I've always been a fan of the fire type...well, at least gen 5. I picked Snivy. But that's not the point.
    I can't wait to see all the evos, so I can't exactly judge yet.

    I'm gonna go with Fennekin, assuming the second type is either psychic, ghost, or dark. All of those are fun types and I really do want a ghost starter.

    I'm gonna assume, by shape, that Chespin's second type is gonna be ground, rock, or fighting. As for Frokie, I'm gonna say mono, ice (coloration), or flying (possible inflatable bubble things/clouds).
    What I do is for me. Just get out of the way if you don't agree.

    I hope Chespin and final evolutions can learn a lot of moves, like sceptile, grass/dark with (maybe) 7 weakness (fairy?) is too much, rock slide can help, rollout (gym bug) at level 8 is amazing, earthquake, superpower by egg... dark pulse in the trailer looks cool, but chespin looks like a physical attacker, with great defenses...

    Considering Fletchling is the regional bird and appears in the early routes, i'm going to start the way i did since the Blue version... i will pick the water type. I just hope Froakie evolves into a water/fighting at its last stage and it would be perfect!

    Calling it, fire/psychic water/fighting grass/dark.

    I know I've said it before, but I believe that the trailers give it away.

    if you believe the rumours then every is starting to expect this. What makes you think the trailer gives it away?

    I think I'll choose Fennekin, mainly cause its design is the best. I also like Skrelp a lot more than Froakie as a Water pokemon, so I probably won't use him. I hope we won't see the starters evolutions, before the game is released, otherwise I might change my opinion...

    I think Froakie might be water/flying due to the puffs around its body.

    I've always picked Water as my starter on my first run through and Water is still my favourite type, but this Gen is really tough, Chespin and Fennekin are 2 of favourite starters ever. But I thought my bias to Water would hold firm but then I saw Clauncher and Skrelp and I'm just so confused now :'(

    I hope those Fire/Psychic, Water/Fighting, Grass/Dark rumours aren't true. I do like the idea of Fire/Psychic, but not Water/Fighting for Froakie. We already have a fighting frog. We don't need another one *glances at Poliwrath.* But then, knowing Game Freak and how much they love to repeat types and things for Pokémon to be based on, it wouldn't really surprise me (Yes, Fire/Fighters, I'm referring to you here.)
    Grass/Dark for Chespin? I just can't help it but to think of Shiftry. And all those weaknesses would hurt.

    Mind you, but Water/Fighting is actually a good typing in general as you have a whopping amount of 7 resistances. It's a good typing overall and provides some decent coverage. After all, I'm sure after countless speculations of a reasonable secondary typing for the starters, Froakie with Fighting seems logical because of it's overall physique. Besides, GF can duplicate typing combinations whenever they want to, but I don't see why it's "wrong" to have more than one typing combination (Now Water/Ice and Fire/Fighting is a different story...)

    I'm a bit meh over Chespin's typing. Grass/Dark doesn't seem logical, just because Chespin used a Dark-type move in the trailer doesn't permanently signify that it will be Grass/Dark. I can see it as more of a Grass/Ground, or just mono-Grass altogether :l
