It seems there is a French trend going on with empoleon and serperior...
    If we get a Ben Franklin frog he should be part electric. And then I would have to change my answer, because Ben Franklin frog.

    A while back I, too, said the fox better not be another fighting type. But then a friend of mine said "But if it is, you can name it Mozilla Firefox, teach it Hi Jump Kick, and laugh as it keeps going and crashes." So I think I might be okay with that if it learns Hi Jump Kick. But I'm feeling Fire/Psychic or plain Fire.

    I don't mind Fennekie's evo as a Fire/Fighting Pokémon, as long as its design is good.

    Ah, this Froakie = Benjamin Franklin speculation is kinda... weird.
    The only reference Empoleon had to Napoleon was the name, everything else was based on Poseidon/trident.

    I don't see (and I don't want) Froakie having more than a name reference to Benjamin lol

    I hope that they dont do a BW/BW2 on us and make us beat the first gym before we can trade. I want all three starters on my team this time. Im having a hard time picking a favourite.

    Im actually hoping for pure types this time as it will be quite a refreshing challenge. My first playthrough of gold with a chikorita all those years ago was quite hard for 10 year old me.

    Um, or, the fr stands for FRog?........ >_>

    Honestly, these Water/Electric and Water/Grass predictions sound like a shot in the dark.

    Especially as its a starter, thats too poweful a combination. I doubt any starter would have a dual combination of two starter types.

    I would like to have the three on my team too, but only if they evolve to dual-typed Pokémon. My teams never consist of a Fire, a Water, a Grass, a Flying and two random. >_>
    I like always using a Dark, a Fighting, a Bug, a Ghost, a Steel and the starter in my team. Hopefully at least two of the starters will fall under these types.

    Probably, yeah. It isn't a good type combination, but a second Charizard would be interesting.

    Hi guys I'm new here. I've been reading the forum for a while and now I finally registered

    On the topic of starters I'm not sure what to think of them. I'm very disapointed with Chespin so far. Since gen 1 I have always picked grass starter but this time around unless Chespin's evos are really cool I might go with fire or just play with regional bird as my started which I also do every gen (love bird pokemon). Fenekin looks really elegant and I hope its evo is not another fire/fighting. Froakie is a little akward looking don't really like it but all those fan arts of his final stage show it has lots of potenatial to become really cool pkmn.

    As for types I hope for grass/rock for Chespin (his colour scheme kinda leads me to think he might be ground tho, but I wish for rock since Torterra is part ground)
    Fenekin fire/psychic
    Froakie water/poison

    ^ I also went for Grass (almost) every gen. only in Gen 2 did I not pick the grass starter.
    -Bulbasaur
    -Totodile (sorry, chikorita, you just looked way too girly)
    -Treecko
    -Turtwig
    -Snivy
    -Chespin

    -----------------------
    If Froekie turns out to be a Water/"Fighting" type.
    won't that come over as a lame decision from GameFreaks.

    Poliwrath, Croagunk/Toxicroak are also fighting type frogs, Poliwrath is even both water & fighting type.
    Imo, non of the starters should turn out as a fighting type. We've had a fighting type in all the last 3 gens.

    Poliwrath is a tadpole, not a frog. And Fighting is a good type, I don't care if there were three starters with this type before.

    I still hope fennekin still becomes fire/pshychic eventually that would be awesome. To finally have that typing in a starter thank of the move possiblities.

    IMO, qwilfish deserves an evo. It never really could hold its own in battle.

    As for the starters, I kinda like the idea of a water/poison starter. Up until now, the water starters could learn dark moves through level up or, like Empoleon, were resistant to psychic so they never really struggled against pychic pokemon. It would make it more of a challenge.

    I heard it is actually pretty good competitively, considering that it doesn't evolve.

    Right now I am not caring much about what type Froakie's evo will have... Water/Fighting, Water/Flying, Water/Poison, Water/Dark... It is all okay to me.

    If it ends up being Water/Flying, I want it to look somewhat like this.

    Ah the Zelda god frog thing, that would be cool.

    Nintendo do like to put cross references in their games I suppose, like the golden sun moves in Mario power tennis.

    I don't care if Chespin or Froakie is Fighting type at least that's different, I just don't want to see a fourth fire/fighting starter in a row.
    I also wouldn't mind seeing Froakie as a water/poison type, but to me it seems like more of a fighting type for some odd reason.

    Lol

    Froakie will evolve to Zephos, Chespin to Link and Fennekin... No idea.

    Maybe because of its stance when it attacks on the video? Or maybe due to the fast move it uses?
    I got a Fighting-type vibe from Froakie too.

    My rough guess for their 3rd evos:
    Fennekin: Fire/Psychic > good in sp.atk and sp.def, decent speed
    Froakie: Water/Ice, Poison, Fighting or Dark > balanced atk, sp.atk, frail defenses
    Chespin: Grass/(I dunno, anything could fit maybe pure grass) > good atk, fast

    I also liked the theory of the other folks here said about their secondary types being reversed super-effective to their weakness.
    ^ -Fire/Psychic- v
    ^ -Water/Fighting- v
    ^ -Grass/Dark- v

    Yea that's pretty much the reason lol

    Froakie also reminded me of Seismitoad when I first saw it in the trailer, alot of other people I've seen have said the same thing. Just like how Fenniken looks similar to Vulpix.

    I've left for the greener pastures of Bulbagarden Forums, where free speech is still allowed and the rules are followed by all, including those who enforce them.
