    Technically you should say the Bulbasaur-line because Bulbasaur was Grass/Poison as well

    You're right, but odds are that wouldn't happen with the case of the Psychic move.
    Also, I find it hard to believe Game Freak would use those particular secondary moves for no reason other than to provide some sort of hint. But that's possible too.

    The moves they used trailer looked like a Dark, Psychic, and Fighting to me. I also think this creates quite a nice counter-triangle. The moves in the Trailer were probably nothing, but I feel they were a clue to the typing.

    I would like a kung-fu master evolution for Froakie, but I'm sure Fennekin will get the secondary fighting type upon evolving.

    maybe dry skin for Froakie
    Iron Barb or Rough Skin for Chespie
    Magic Guard or ability that psychic type often have.

    We won't actually know what's going to happen until the final forms are revealed.

    Interesting theories. Froakie could have dry skin like Croagunk and Toxicroak considering it's based off of a frog.
    Not quite sure how Chespin would have Iron Barb/Rough skin.
    I'm thinking Flash fire would be more appropriate for fennekin.

    That is, if Hidden Abilities make a return, then all of this wouldn't mater because then Overgrow/Blaze/Torrent would be the starter abilities.

    Well he said respectively, so he was right about the water part, he had the grass part mixed up, which got me mixed up.

    And Samurott is a pure water type.

    OT, I really think that both Chespin and Froakie's evolutions will get secondary types, and Fennekin I'm still not sure about.

    I just read a random fact that all porcupines float. So maybe Chespin will evolve from a hedgehog into a porcupine and because a porcupine/spike-lily pad pokemon, making him Grass/Water? Completely random speculation, and probably not very likely because it makes him receive neutral damage from fire attacks, makes him able to more effectively take on Fennekin, and impedes on Froakie's typing. But you have to admit, that'd be pretty cool

    Idon't know... We already have the Lotad line as Grass/Water lilypads, so that's another problem.

    No. I have hope that GameFreak won't repeat this mistake again. And I really wish Froakie to be water/Electric for whatever reason, but I just know that won't happen. And, seriously, gamefreak wouldn't show us moves in the trailer if it wasn't to give us a hint. I hishly doubt they'd put the moves there "just 'cause...".

    wait, I meant 2/5 water, because Empoleon was also a Dual type.

    Yea, I was thinking that, too. Maybe the spikes would turn into cattails instead? I'm not really backing the idea, just throwing some more ideas out there to be thought about

    It's based on the Hedgehog which has needles. Poison Point is another ability I could see it getting.

    Yes that is a Female Dino Charge Red. It's a FanFic thing

    Maybe Chespin could turn into a Grass/Ground type and be what you said except more marshy or swampy - muddy.

    Fennekin has small wings on its hind legs, Froakie has clouds on his back, and Chespin has claws like an Excadrill. Flying/Electric/Ground types?

    I want Chespin spikes to turn into cactus looking things, just cause that how I see it, I want him to be a Grass/Dark type, but I would take Grass/Fighting to, I do not want him to be a Grass/Ground, sounds so boring....

    I am not going to take any guesses though (just stating what I want to happen) in till I see at least the 2nd stage.

    But unless they turn him from cute to ugly in his later stages, I am for sure getting Chespin.

    Back home! TO HOENN!

    Poochyena is claimed by me!

    most none psychic learn extrasensory anyway and it is not exactly a very popular move, mostly there as a filler.

    I think chespin will learn entry hazard move such as poison spike, stealth rock and spike.

    I literally thought of that as soon as I posted the idea. I think that'd be possibility. And with that typing he could become more defensive based like a lot of people have been saying, or become a physical tank.

    I don't think it was Extrasensory. Seems more like confusion to me. And I really don't think GameFreak would add a move in the trailer as filler. They know what they are doing.

    Perhaps Chespin would be Grass/Poison; as it will likely evolve into a spinier form, the needles on it may become poisonous. It's not entirely possible, but there is some chance it may happen.



    I have every right to be the better person for no reason whatsoever. Life is about doing the right thing and leaving people with a good idea of who you are and what your ideals are.

    I really don't want the second to happen even though I like two of the fire/fighting starters. I just don't want a fourth in a row...

    Thinking about Alpha Sapphire:

    Trainers from Bulbapedia (Kris from Spriters Resource),
    Gen I-IV Pokemon from The Spriters Resource, Gen 5 Pokemon from
    cSandoval on DeviantArt, Serena from tebited15 on Deviant Art,
    Gen III Pokemon from Bulbapedia

    *Stares at poll with horror* Why are Chespin and Froakie suddenly making a comeback? They're virtually tied right now, and they're closing in on Queen Fennekin. I'm worried for her.

    I expect Chespin and Fennekin to have Overgrowth and Blaze, respectively. The Starters always have the same generic abilities. Oh well. There's still a chance they'll have Hidden Abilities.

    Lol guys I forgot venusaur was poison don't kill each other. Wow. I started a debate and was logical. Cool. Unintentional too.

    I also forgot my opinions on the starters themselves. Chespin us my favorite as of now, it just has a unique design I think. Fennekin is cool too,and is also unique as an idea but has little to no creativity in the design itself. I mean really,it's basically just a recolored fox-thing. Froakie is cool too but my least favorite of the three. Just so.... weird looking I guess.

    However, I'm not making any final decisions just yet. Gonna wait for evidence first.
