    I also saw someone posting:maybe fire/bug
    *PAAALMMMMFACEEE*
    Fire bug. Seems legit. Remember the last time you stepped in that pesky Fennec Fox look-alike bug? (Seriously, how could he say that? Makes no sense!)

    But, all jokes aside, I would love Fire/Psychic, but since GameFreak likes playing tricks on us, I'd like to wait and see...

    You honestly made me go back to look at the trailer for Chespin and Froakie about this. Chespin's solar beam gets a bit brighter and a tad greener, while the second attack has a black background, red x, and bits of black, purple, and whit slashing. For Froakie the first attack becomes a water like blue, while the second attack just has him hitting Patrat is with black and electric blue showing.

    For Fennekin, I can only ask: NO FIRE/FIGHTING, STAY QUADRUPEDAL! And, I mean, Fennekin is around for three days and he is already on his way to rule the Internet. He's just a beast like that!
    And, yeah, I can see Chespin being Grass/Dark, but not Grass/Ground as much.

    Well CoroCoro is in 5 days and will likely be leaked in less. Let's see what they have to offer. They could maybe give us some new information... Or they could totally just repeat everything that's known currently.

    I could see us getting typings perhaps, but sadly I can't see us getting evolutions any time soon :/. Or as you said, we'll just get everything repeated to us. Hopefully corocoro will give us a closer look at the girl protagonist.
    even if we don't understand each other, that's not a reason to reject each other. There are two sides to any argument. Is there one point of view that has all the answers? Give it some thought.
    ^ This is the reason why I like arguing. If I come off as standoffish or overly angry in an argument, don't worry. I'm probably having the time of my life. Whether I agree with them or not, the pokemon fandom has a lot of different opinions, and I love how nobody is afraid to share them.

    Somehow, I see the latter more likely to be true. But maybe I'm wrong. Hopefully I'm wrong...

    Yeah, better looks as the girl protagonist and typings are all we can wish for that could actually be possible at this point.

    Correction: Vulpix learns Extrasensory by level up. Though, I will say, that move the unmistakable appearance of a Psychic type move.

    My analysis of the moves in the video:
    Chespin
    -Solarbeam
    -Night Slash(not Aerial Ace, because Aerial Ace's animation includes two vertical slashes, one downward and the second upward; the move's animation had two downward vertical slashes)

    So you think they expect us to wait until the games' release to see the starters' evolutions? Sorry, but it's 99% likely that you're wrong. This is a new gen, they're going to want to create as much hype as possible. I'm not expecting them to be revealed when CoroCoro is released/leaked in a couple of days, but definitely earlier than 7-8 months.

    Change water gun to the new move that's the freeze version of scald I completely agree with this. I'm still hung up on that snowflake in it and I probably will be until it's revealed to be a new move or while playing the game I find out it is. If I didn't love Fennekin so much I'd probably pick Froakie if we don't find info on it before release.

    I'm picking Chespin for sure, fell in love with the little dude as soon as he popped up in the trailer I can see how some people can see it's resemblance to Dewott/Oshawott but for me that isn't a bad thing since i loved the whole evolution line (The only other line i fully loved was the Squirtle line)

    I have no idea what he could become in his final stage, the first thought i had was part Fighting then went to part Dark. Not too sure which one i would prefer out of those :S maybe Grass/Dark since i'm pretty much a part dark type trainer but the weaknesses he would get would suck. One idea i saw I'm starting to like alot more and that is Grass/Rock, i hardly ever use Rock types so if Chespin does become part Rock then i get to use it alot more

    Not going to comment in as much detail with the other two (long posts tend to get read less, well for me anyway XD) Fennekin does nothing or me whatsoever :/ it doesn't have a bad design and i don't dislike it, it just isn't my type of pokemon. Froakie would be my 2nd choice and what i will most probably choose in the 2nd game i get, it has an interesting design that can be interpreted many, many ways, which is awesome

    This is gonna be hard! I haven't been interested in a fire starter since Torchic (I know), and for the past two gens I went with the water starter. I think I will leave it at how the evolutions look, though I will probably try to get all the starters once I've completed the game.

    Even with the characters, I don't know what I want to be this time :B

    Hang on guys, I just had a thought. Remember when back when Diamond and Pearl were going to be released, it was rumored that the starters would be Dark/Fighting/Psychic.

    So maybe because Chespin knows (preseumbly) Night Slash and Fennekin learns what appears to be Confusion. Maybe the trio will gain those types when they evolve.

    Chespin into a Grass/Dark
    Fennekin into a Fire/Psychic
    and Froakie into a Water/Fighting

    Do you guys agree?

    I really don't get why people are so hyped up about CoroCoro right now... You do realize this game is being released worldwide, so any information that will be revealed on this game will be revealed at the same time across the globe, so you have to look at places where information can be released simultaneously... I'm talking E3, CES, those kind of Events. CoroCoro will probably only rehash stuff we already know, maybe release artwork. But any and all information coming from a source in a specific country will be very MINIMAL at best...

    Also, the Starters final evolutions were revealed mearly weeks (2-3 weeks) before BW launch, so saying waiting for 7-8 months isn't a stretch tbh...

    Personally, I'm leaning towards Froakie. I think he has the most potential for evolutions, and while I am a diehard Charmander fan from my original Pokemon days, I've been playing with water starters since Silver.

    I'm also betting on Grass / Dark, Fire / Psychic, Water / Fighting. Although its hard to say. We could just be getting excited when really we'll just be getting Grass / Fire / Water. We have no reason to believe there are two types for each.

    We all know CoroCoro will reveal new info. It's not like they're just going to be like 'it's a worldwide launch, we're just going to wait until a couple certain points in the year and leave everyone wondering.' They won't. Pokémon.com as well as other resources for other countries can simply reveal new info at the same time. CoroCoro is just how they release it for Japan. They won't change things just for a global launch.

    And those were the final evolutions, I'm talking about their secondary evolutions. I also said a yes that it will be a couple months, just not 7-8 months for them.

    I have a feeling that they will reveal something substantive, but it will be game play related and probably a few of the weaker route 1 pokemon. Maybe a few NPC's... I doubt they'll just rehash everything though.
    meh...

    for my personal tradition sake and the fact it looks better than the rest im gonna choose fennekin since like i just said i have this little self induced tradition of picking the fire starter for each new gen when im first starting them.
    ill be impress (and a little disappointed) if the day comes that a game creates a fire starter so bad i wouldnt want to start with it.
