    You kidding? I think it's already been mentioned all the reasons that this typing would make Chespin a BAMF.

    Everything you just said is stuff that I like.
    I am also picking Froakie regardless, since it's looking like we may not have the final evos revealed by the release date and I like him the best out of the 3 starters.

    I believe that rumor has been going around for some time. Look back some pages and you'll see.

    I dont think that gamefreak made froakie with franklin (wow those names are actually similar once i type them hmmmm) in mind but i do think they made froakie to end up being a sage like wiseman with the glasses and hand position and the first person we think of is ben.

    I think that they'll definitely reveal the final evos. My memory is a bit hazy but they did it with Unova (I'm pretty sure) so why wouldn't they do it in Gen 6? Although we haven't had any news (except for the starter's base types, names of the two legendaries and their height/weight) since the trailer, which is really f*cking me off.
    Only time I've ever cried in Pokemon; when Ash took over command of Chimchar in the Tag Team Tournament. That's when I started to love Chimchar & Monferno Lol keep in mind I was 9

    If you think the Sinnoh saga has been the best saga of the whole show, copy and paste this into your signature! (started by FlameRose)

    They didn't do it with Unova. Some concept artwork was unofficially leaked a few weeks prior to the games' release, and then the starters were confirmed when someone in Japan got the game 2 days early. Nintendo didn't release anything.
    So that's why they wouldn't do it with Gen 6.

    That was the FIRST thing I noticed. Mostly because I'm a fan of mammalian Starters (except Bulbasaur). :P

    EVERYONE notices we've had too many Fire/Fightings but no one notices we've only gotten reptilian Grass Starters. I am glad people noticed we've never had a Speedy Water Starter, yet....

    whoah. thatd be awesome if gamefreak didnt tell us the final evos for the starters and just let us find out on our own. ive always wanted to go into a generation blind without looking anything up. but i never had the balls to do it.

    Imo, Froakie does sort of resemble him. I wonder if James Turner designed it. If so, it's his best creation to date, but that doesn't say much lol. *Looks at Golett and Golurk*

    But, that was Japan. So they only had like 3-6 months (I really can't remember this ****) to release all of it, where as this time they have 10 months to release it all. People will (and already have) get bored if they don't release new Pokemon, especially the final starter evos.

    Imo, if anything, only Froakie's name is a reference to Franklin, like Empoleon refers to Napoleon.

    Oh, they'll release plenty of the new mons, don't worry. I think every month or so we'll get a bit more info, then in the final month we will get a lot of hyper-increased speculation/hoaxing as well as unsanctioned leakage. (haha)

    I think this time round gamefreak are being tight with information so if they want us to see it we will if they don't we wont. I wouldn't expect information to be leaked.

    Emboar design being better then Blaziken is your opinion. While in my opinion Blaziken is the better design

    I could see Froakie being a high speed water-type.
    I noticed as well that Chespin will be the first grass type that's not reptilian, however the desgin an what their based off of doesn't matter to me. Nor does it effect how it is in-game which is why you see so many people saying they don't want another fire/fighting type.
    Just like all the other grass starters I'm pretty sure Chespin is going to be a tank as well.

    I really don't want Chespin to be the tank.....I never like any of the Tank's last stage.

    Back home! TO HOENN!

    Poochyena is claimed by me!

    My starter (unrealistic) Ideals:

    Chespin: A Grass/rock physical tank faster than Samurott with more attack than defense though. More like a bulky sweeper than a tank.

    Fennekin: A Fire/ghost with stats like serperior but defense/attack becoming special and with some burn and confusion support with calm mind option and hex

    Froakie: A Water/electric with Infernape speed, high special attack, and STAB volt switch some nice filler moves (shadow ball, psychic, sludge bomb) and Nasty Plot seems likely

    Froaklin?
    Also, which Franklin are you referring to? If it's Ben Franklin, then I hope Froakie evolves into an electric type.

    So many possiblities for these starters, yet so many ways they may not be as good as we hope they turn out. I just hope one of them is decent and Fennekin becomes another Fire/Fighting.

    Yeah, that's what I'm feeling, too.
    If you think about it, last generation got really out of hand with information being leaked. GF definitely wasn't pleased with the way that all worked out, so I think they're keeping the lid on pretty well this gen.
    That said, leaks always find a way to happen anyway...
