    I bet that the starters and Pokémon of this gen in general will have some interesting movepools, mainly because of new attacks, TMs, Move Tutors and stuff. I also expect many older Pokémon to get wider and better movepools thanks to that.

    Except for Flareon, Gamefreak hates it. But I love it along with the rest of the eeveelutions.

    Honestly, I think the move's just Water Gun

    I thought it was water gun too until the snowflake was pointed out to be in there. I feel as if it weren't for that snowflake it would just be water gun.

    Hmmm... So far I don't know what to think. I like Fennekin the best. The fur on its ears gives off this Japanese vibe, which I like. Also, unless the final form looks really different, I may be resetting for a female.

    Chespin looks fine, but I am confused about where the inspiration comes from. Chipmunk I guess? Well, whatever. I kind of like it, its not great but it's not bad. I think his final form will look a lot cooler, so I may go with it on the other version.

    Froakie also looks pretty cool. Not as good as Fennekin, though. I think it'll have a cool final evolution. Oh, and I've wanted a frog starter for years. So happy we finally got one, but not happy it's ugly.

    I think that the thing about the starters I'm most anticipating is their type combos. I just hope they are new and different. Also, I really really REALLY hope that Fennekin's final form doesnt star standing on 2 legs and gain the fighting type. If that happens, you can disregard everything I said about it, because I wont be using it.
    This "Pokemon Rainbow" rumored game is already killing me. I want it!

    Also, general nintendo fans will probably like my youtube. I make unboxings and collection videos.

    The animation has snowflakes on it. Many people tought it was an Ice type attack, then others (myself included) started pointing out how it was obvious it wasn't an Ice type attack, due to it splashing when it hits Pansear. I then suggested that it might as well be an all new attack, the opposite of Scald. Instead of having a chance to burn, it would ahve a chance to freeze.

    I though it was Water Gun too when I first saw it, but if you pause the video you can clearly see there are snow flakes all over the screen

    Chespin didn't use a dark type attack. It was almost surely AA if you were to take a closer look.

    And Froakie didn't use an ice move - that was CLEARLY water type, and was discussed last page.

    What I did notice, though is what looked like sparks coming from the second move Froakie used.

    I'm definitely choosing Chespin. I've always picked the grass starters, plus, he's adorable and I have a good feeling that his evo's are gonna be so awesome!

    I'm not really seeing snowflakes in Froakie's attack, I think it's just the animation.

    I think it could be seen both as snowy effect, or just as splashing water rings, like it normally is portrayed as in the sprite based moves. I think basing a second type only in that is a little bit vague.

    I think someone had a picture of it pages ago. I don't remember which page it is and I have to go soon so I can't look for it but there is a snowflake in it.

    There's the image. You can clearly see snowflakes inside the Water attack.

    If it was meant to be an ice-type attack, don't you think they would've made it a bit more obvious? I think it's just the animation.

    Those are absolutely not snowfakes. That is water if I've ever seen it. Plus it wouldn't make sense. Chespin uses a grass attack first, Fennekin uses a fire attack first, and then all of a sudden for no reason Froakie uses an ice attack? Lol no. That is a definite water attack.

    plus it doesn't even really look like ice or snow.

    I see snowflakes.

    Guys, the only Water-types to not get Ice Beam are Magikarp and the Tympole line. It really doesn't mean anything.

    I never said it is an Ice type attack. I said that it may be a Water type move with the effect of an Ice type move, just like Scald is a Water type move with an effect that Fire type moves inflict.
