    Also, since picking favorites is popular...
    Bulbasaur (because I could never beat Misty with Charmander as a kid), Totodile (first ever, I was like OOH WATER!), Torchic (Gen3 starters are all great, though, but whoever says Blaziken looks weird gets a burning kick in the face), Piplup (they all sucked equally), Snivy (SMUG AS ****), and now [Mozilla] Fennekin.

    Alright, let me put out another theory for Chespin. As my favorite XY starter, I was wondering; every single Grass starter uses special features as part of their weapon in their fully evolved form; i.e. Bulbusaur's bloom for Venasaur's Solarbeam charges, Chikorita's leaf for Meganium's aroma/healing powers and stuff, Treecko's leaf for that Leaf Blade Sceptile has, Turtwig's shell for, obviously, Torterra's tree, and Snivy's tail leaf for Serperior's snake body/long tail leaf.

    So, Chespin...the only thing truly standing out is his hood. So, one can assume the hood will be a special feature in his evo - but also, his weapon at the final form. So, what could be his weapon? Spikes falling out of those things sticking out of Chespin? A fruit/nut - perhaps chestnuts growing out of them like Tropius' fruits around his neck? Maybe he uses the chestnuts as a ranged weapon for throwing? Ah well. Point is, I'm sure that the hood will probably become some part of his weaponry.

    Now, I can imagine Chespin learning bullet seed and rock blast and its hidden ability to be skill link.

    I must go for Fennekin. After all it's a Fire-type. I just hope it doesn't end up as an ugly Fire/Fight like Infernape and worse, Emboar ended up :/ Since cyndaquil that I'm not 100% satisfied with the Fire starter. But Fennekin is my 3rd favorite Fire starter after Cyndaquil and Charmander so... it may be worth it

    I'll jump into the bandwagon as well, I'm bored and this may take a while until any news. (Anyone knows what the other pages of CoroCoro were?)

    I Gen: Squirtle.
    II Gen: Totodile.
    III Gen: Treecko
    IV Gen: Piplup.
    V Gen: Snivy
    VI: Froakie.
    Interesting enough, Fire types are always me second favorite. *-*

    I love all three starters! Fire has always been my favorite type, and since Charmander, I've always gone for the fire type first out of tradition (though, I always buy both versions and trade the others to the same game, I want to finish it with all starters, since generation 2). I will do the same with this generation, because they all look cute! Fennekin looks best in my opinion, but they all look great. I love starter Pokemon, and I can't wait to see their evolutions. I was considering not looking at any of the spoilers so I will be more surprised in-game, but I don't have the discipline for that.. I want to know now...!!

    EDIT:
    Favorite list by generation:
    1: Charmander, Squirtle, Bulbasaur
    2: Cyndaquil, Totodile, Chikorita
    3: Treecko, Torchic, Mudkip
    4: Chimchar, Turtwig, Piplup
    5: Snivy, Oshawott, Tepig
    6: Fennekin, Chespin, Froakie

    Top 5: Charmander, Treecko, Cyndaquil, Torchic, Chimchar

    ^Based on their looks and the looks of their evolutions.

    But like I said, I have used all starters and really like all of them and each has its own charm

    Actually Grass is my least favorite type of Pokemon. And Serperior got replaced by Whimsicott which I liked more as soon as I could.
    Dark is my favorite type so far.

    But oh well, I tend to pick water so I avoid having to pick another water type of that game.

    For me it's fire, fire, fire, grass, grass, grass. My brother chooses the water starters.

    My ultimate want is an uncloned shiny jirachi, if you have one, please tell me so I'm always extremely interested in other uncloned shiny event pokemon/shinies in general, so PM me if you want to trade

    Fire all gens except 5/6, where I chose Oshawott and Froakie, because I love having Chandelure on my team and I'm terribly OCD about overlapping types.

    I normally go water for every gen, at least for the first play through. My favorite starter of 6th gen is more Froakie/Chespinish...

    The first time I ever played through Pokemon, I was seven, Red and Blue had just been released in North America, and I refused to level up my Charmander the entire playthrough. I liked him so much.

    Surprisingly, I've played most gens more than once, and my favorite starters aren't always the ones I picked first.

    First Picks:
    Gen I: Charmander
    Gen II: Cyndaquil
    Gen III: Mudkip
    Gen IV: Chimchar
    Gen V: Snivvy

    Now, if you ask my my preference each generation...

    Gen I: Charmander, Squirtle, Bulbasaur (but easily my favorite gen, I like all three)
    Gen II: Totodile, Cyndaquil, Chikorita
    Gen III: Mudkip, Treecko, Torchic
    Gen IV: Chimchar, Turtwig, Piplup
    Gen V: Snivvy, Tepig, Oshawott

    As for Gen VI, I'm thinking that Froakie is who I will be picking, but its all going to depend on stats and types. Final evolutions are also more important to me than base forms.

    Most likely just like how they have in the past. Expect info around the middle of the month until release.

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

    6 - Unsure... Chespin/Fennikin.

    Based on design.

    Based on Battles, I'd change Blaziken ---> Swampert, Empoleon ---> Torterra, and Serperior ---> Emboar.
