    And for me it didn't seem a huge jump-still water mammals. Otters and sea lions look vaguely alike.
    I should clarify: I love the design (in fact, it's my second favorite final evolution for a water starter) and I think the bulkiness fits it due to being a shogun, it's just that the jump from Dewott to Samurott does make it a bit awkward since it loses some of the mobility (visually) present in the previous form. I think they could've made it a bit more transitional between the two so that they could keep that aspect more present.

    That's completely fair.

    Fair enough. Though like I said above, I prefer samurott than what a straight line ewott evo would've been.
    Yo, fellow Poke' lovers! My favorite is Feraligatr, but I love most pokemon. I've lots of pokemon hatched/caught, are willing to trade some.

    Can breed a lot of pokemon, I have POKERUS, lot of HA pokes, PM me if you are willing to trade.

    My Pangoro in the 6th gen remake of a 3rd gen game will be my future 63rd hundred. This is a great epiphany.

    His tail that looked like nothing you'd ever see on a sea lion? Sea lions have a short stump for a tail. It also stood up really awkwardly in a way that a sea lion would not. Sealeo and Walrein are sea lions/walruses, but Samurott is not. Samurott is a really awkward design that never really harked to any animal for me, and I love weird animals like colugos and tenrecs, though my specialty is carnivorans.

    I guess I'm just used to the real variant. I couldn't even tell that it was intended as a pinniped because it held itself off the ground. Much less a sea lion with their visible ears and forward facing feet.

    I suppose they didn't want it to look so close to dewgong.

    There's ways of making a pinniped pokemon that doesn't look like dewgong. Granted, I don't know why dewgong has it's name when it's a pinniped, not a sirenian (Can we get a proper water/grass manatee, plz?). But I think we're getting way off track here. I thought Samurott was a poor design, you liked it, we can move on and let the conversation go back to Kalos starters.

    Sure can.

    What kind of face would you like for chespin? As a rodent he could go a few ways. They could go the Pikachu route and make him flat faced (Hate that), a raticate mid length, or while not a rodent, a floatzel/sandslash longish broad mouth (Preferred)

    One like a prehensile-tailed porcupine. Pokey piggy snout. :3

    Kidding, mostly. I'm thinking that it won't be so much rodent as hedgehog and therefore retain the insectivore/omnivore style mouth.

    As long as he doesn't get chisel teeth, I'm good. I actually despise that non-rodents get referred to as rodents in pokemon fandom. But I just be a pedantic biologist. Chespin straddles the line of being a rodent (porcupine) and being a member of Erinaceidae (hedgehog family, which are more related to shrews than anything else).

    I just want Fennekin to be quadrupedal throughout all of its evolutions. Can't we just have a normal quad fire starter for once?

    Agreed. It will help make Fennekin stand out more against the other Fire starters as well.

    If he gets noticeable teeth, maybe little fangs.

    I know it leans more towards Fighting than Dark, but I still keep seeing Chespins evolution getting huge knuckle dusters that look like conker shells. They'd probs look more like boxing gloves as they cover most of his fist. But it would be a nice way to use Needle Arm.

    I see Chespin as a knight. I just feel its cap (hat? Covering? Whatever that thing is) will extend around its arms in an armor-esque thing. I also see it growing a hard plate/scale covering, also like armor. I then see his muzzle extending outward and him gaining a more regal/strong aura.

    Not a bad idea. If he does go the boxer route, just no boxer helmet.

    It could be like Shiftry. But only if he goes down the assassin path.
