    A late reply, but a quick search turned this up:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leptodactylidae

    "Several of the genera within Leptodactylidae lay their eggs in foam nests. These can be in crevices, on the surface of water, or on forest floors. These foam nests are some of the most varied among frogs. When eggs hatch in nests on the forest floor, the tadpoles remain within the nest, without eating, until metamorphosis. In the genus Eleutherodactylus, the eggs undergo direct development and hatch directly into miniature frogs, with no free-living tadpole stage."
    Considering Froakie's foam collar, you could consider it as part of this Family. They still undergo a tadpole-like state like all frogs, however they do not venture out till a complete form.

    Yo MonfernoFreak, if Chespin evolves into something super badass looking with the typing you could have only dreamed of, but still decides that it wants to be gay, would you not be accepting of it?
    I know I would.

    Yeah, what's with people calling everything "gay"?

    Chespin, if you're gay, don't worry. We'll still accept you.

It sucks being the only person who likes certain Starters for how they look in their unevolved forms.
    I think that's not exactly the case. From what I've seen, people are choosing Fennekin because it's commonly considered the best-looking or coolest out of the three base forms — but most people are waiting to see its evolutions in order to determine whether they will still be choosing Fennekin or picking another option, because three consecutive Generations of Fire/Fighting really make you face a new, cool Fire starter with a grain of salt before seeing what it evolves into.

    I'd like to know who these jokers are who voted Dunsparce.
    Know what would have really blown people's minds?
    You've been waiting all week for the Pokemon Direct video. It's Tuesday morning, 6 AM, HOLY CRAP A NEW 3D ADVENTURE, and the starters arrrrrre...
    Dunsparce. Just Dunsparce. Good luck on your adventure in 3D land.

    This might sound crazy, but...

    What if Dunsparce got a kick-*** evolution? Y'know, like the bullied kid that turns around and says, "Look at me now!"

    So, Basically, your saying that Picking Chespin unless it has a really happy evolution? I'm sorry, but nowhere in my games does it say that "One must choose this pokemon if it appears happy". Just look at The Three Gen 1 pokemon. Everyone would have a really hard time not picking Charamander.


    Oh... you meant the other kind of gay. Well, fine, but if Fennekin does turn into a Fire/fighting, I'm blaming you for making me lose 10 dollars.

    I feel like an evo would not be up to snuff. Dunsparce has this sort of... beautiful charm about him.

    Actually, I bet two people 5 bucks that all the final forms will be pure. I know I'm going to lose 10 bucks.

    But I'm going to be straight up butthurt about it until the types get announced.

    I may have to trade for all the starters, they just look that awsome. Unless they do something that will enrage me, like make ANOTHER Fire/fighting evo or give Chespin a very frail evolution typing.

    What if- and I know this is preposterous, but hear me out- Fennekin is Fire/Fighting AND it's the most glorious looking thing you've ever seen. Still gonna be mad?

    Seriously, everyone's all, "FIRE/FIGHTING'S NOT ORIGINAL I'M GONNA KILL ALL GAME FREAK WORKERS WITH MY RAGE FISTS". However, that said, it's all about how they pull it off. Do it right, and all the whiners are gonna have a hard time founding their arguments.

    It doesn't matter who I start with because I'm going to get them all for the pokedex. I still find myself attached to Fennekin at the moment, but you never know. I might change my mind by the time the game comes out.

    I'll still love fennekin if she/he is gorgeous regardless of type, however if it becomes hideous even with fire/electric ( my preferred type combo) fire/psychic with amazing game breaking stats, I won't choose it, or if i did it would be the first starter I would refuse to evolve. I won't use pokemon I consider Ugly, (which is odd because I like ferrothorn alot :P) Blissy's looks are actually the only reason I hate it, but that's a story for another day!

    I don't mind Fennekin being Fire/Fighting. What I hate more than Fire/Fighting is actually the starters being pure types, IMO at least. Not that I will be like, "Oh noezzz the final evozzz are all singlezzz typezzz, I'm not buying thiz crapzzzz Trollz Freakzz."

    Ah, yes, I can see that you're an Emboar sympathizer. I, too, like the fiery-bearded one.

    Gotta say, though, still pulling for that Fire/Flying Fennekin evo.
    You crazy kids have got me all in a tizzy for Water/Electric on Froakie's line.
    And Chespin? I mean, he's awesome. Let the little dude evolve into whatever he wants, cos he can.


    edit; dude, post #369. That's special. Not that I haven't hit that mark once before, but still.

    Ok, Clarification time! It's not that I would hate another fire/fighting type, it just dose not seem right for Fennekin's final evoution. To me, foxes use intellegence and try to avoid fighting whenever possible.
    Now, if Fennekin's final evolution looks great and has the fire/fighting type, I will still give Fennekin a try. After all, I originally was skeptical about Chimchar and his evolutions, untill I began Platinum with him as my starter that is.

    I know what you mean. Though I kinda have this feeling in my tummy that Fenne's line is gonna be pure Fire, or maybe because I hadn't eat since waking up.

    Is it just me or does anyone else sees the Chespin's 'Hat' as a popular Pokemon merchandise in the future.

    i think froakies final evo will either be Water/ground, or Water/ Grass. I think Chespins final evo will be grass/ground, or pure grass. Fennekins final evo is gona be between fire/fighting, and just for a shot in the dark how about Fire/ Electric.

    Hi evereyone I just had a crazy epiphany that is probably really stupid. Empoleon has numerous parallels to Napoleon. Serperior has parallels to Louis XIV. So could any of the new starters have connections to historical figures? I read a page or two back that Froakie resembles Ben Franklin and realized they might be crazily connected somehow. The fr in froakie seems a little random to me, so could it have been derived from FRanklin? Ben Franklin was also the ambassador to France and lived there for a super long time. The new region is supposedly based on France. See where I'm going here? Its probably the dumbest thing ive ever thought of but it makes just enough sense for it to be possible. Although Napoleon and Louis were far more French than Ben.... in any case though do you think any of the starters are connected to a historical figure? It seems there is a French trend going on with empoleon and serperior...
