    Agreed. I think its the fact that most of us dont want Fennekin to end up being Fire/Fighting. Sure there is a bit of a mystical look to Fennekin, which is where most of the belief it ending up Fire/Psychic lies. But that doesnt mean it will and the fact that is the move being used by Fennekin is unkown.

    I strongly agree with that last part, that's actually what I hated most about tepig, not only was it yet another fire/fighting but the other two didn't get s***! and not even decent movepools to redeem it.

    I'm so happy that we finally got a fire fox starter, I'm definitely going with Fennekin! Chespin is cute too

    I don't know if this makes sense, but it wouldn't surprise me if Fennekin evolved into a Fire/Ground Pokemon, seeing how he might be based on a fennec. I hope not though.

    I think they'll go like this:

    Fennekin: fire/electric or fire/psychic

    Chespin: grass/dark. Or grass/fighting

    Froakie: water/dark or water/psychic

    Would you happen to have an official statement from GameFreak to back that claim up?

    I highly doubt, although without much evidence to support this conclusion, that a move like Growl would be so embellished. It definitely, by aura and appearance, resembles a Psychic elemental-based move.

    just for uniqueness sake it would be cool to have that type combo, only one other pokemon has fire/electric type and it is rotoms heat form, so it would be nice to see some variety.

    Tbh I myself am getting sick of the
    Chespen grass/dark
    Froakie water/fighting
    Fennekin fire/psychic

    I like fire electric muuuch more for the fox

    If it alleviates any angst, I absolutely disagree with the opinion that Froakie will evolve with Fighting as a secondary. Its stylistic dressings point much more towards Dark. As another side note, I personally do not own the desire that any of these Pokemon do, in fact, maintain the secondary typings that many of us are evaluating based on small but focused evidence. I only draw my perspective from intelligent and learned arguments that support that, at the very least, Froakie will possess Dark as its secondary background. Fennekin, if that was a Psychic move, will probably sport Psychic. Chespin, it's all up in the air and it's very difficult to truly assert a positive perspective on the outcome of its metamorphosis.

    I might as well go on about Froakie, since I'm on the subject. I doubt the thief theory. I can see where the stretched connections are - yes the foam on his back has a general sack like shape, and yes the couple of bubbles on his nose is in the general area as the knot of thier mask, but both are stretches, particularly the knot one. Added to that, I feel that Dark is one of the types they will never give as a starters subtype, so I feel it's highly unlikely that's where Froakie is going.

    Or it could be froggie (or froggy) with soak/ croak inserted into it...

    No seriously though, I think dark/psychic/fighting will be the best fit.

    Fenniken could still be Fire/Fighting. While I hope not, GameFreak did surprise us by making Tepig bipedal upon its evolution. The same could happen with Fenniken.

    Nor is there to support the opposite claim. You can't go and make definitive claims if you don't at least have the evidence to back it up. For all we know Fenniken really could be Fire/Electric.

    I've been playing pokemon since the first gen and I think this is the first time my favourite starter has been in line with popular opinion.

    I really like all three of the starters this time around, it was pretty instantaneous. I've picked a water type three times out of five now (Squirtle, Piplup, Oshawott) so I think it could be time for a change.

    So I'm voting Fennekin for now.

    That is why this thread is for Speculation. Nothing has been decided, but we are just proving other points wrong and expressing our personal opinions. No official statement needs to be made, we are just laying down facts we know of as of right now.

    Pretty much established that Fennekin was using something like Psywave, or any other (unofficially) new Psychic type move. But that thing's aiming for a Ninetales complex IMO.
    To debate the fallacy that Froakie lacks a Dark affinity therefore will not evolve into having it as a secondary typing, is akin to saying Mudkip does not have a Ground affinity and therefore will not evolve into a Ground Pokemon. Either way I will not divulge the premise,for it very much does appear to, while not possessing a clearly "Dark" behavioral concept, reflect the appearance of a Japanese thief. The starters are neotenous and never sporting the evolved secondary types, but this one stood out to quite a few of us observers.

    Do you know Fennekin isn't Fire/Electric as a fact? How's the pay over at GameFreak?

    personally I would love to see chespin become Grass/steel Hedgehogs are defensive creatures right? and the type combo goes together like peanut butter and jelly. and I like the fire/psy Idea but I'm getting sick of it being talked to-death every 5 posts . I can get behind the thief frog idea too.

    And there's a flying unicorn in the sky right now, but it's invisible and you can't sense it at all. Right, you can't disprove my statement but it's without any logical background. If one could somehow support this speculation that any of these starters will possess Electric as a secondary typing I will concede. It sounds more like a bandwagon headed down a dark tunnel.
