    Another theory that i would like to brand unlikely is the wizard evolution. This would be both extremely cool and very fitting. But as it would most definitely add the physic type, is unlikely.
    It is unlikely as physic is the only fitting type for fennekin ( we could get trolled) and i don't think 2 part physic starters in the same region is likely.
    What do you all think?
    I'm with you there.
    But fennekin could go either way fighting or psychic.
    Or even ground since its based on a fennec fox.

    Chespin seems to going to be the bulky tank of them.
    What do you think?

    Fennekin is in the lead. I'm not surprised. I'm still trying to decide on which starter I would want to use, Fennekin or Froakie? Arrgh the choices. I can't wait till we start seeing some of the other local Pokemon. The selection of Pokemon in the new region will make the choice easier so I can base a team around them.
    Parena or Serecham both equal Serena+Pancham!

    I don't think we should be jumping to conclusions here, how do we even know what Froakie's personality is? It could be like Rhyhorn who is clumsy or smart as Alakazam.

    Can't wait to see the final evolutions
    Then I can make my final decision.
    Hopefully I'll stay team froakie.


    Also chespin, kind of weird not been dinosaur/reptile based.
    But since servine showed evolution of reptiles (loosing arms ect...)

    I think chespins represents a megazostrodon, the first mammal.
    While also been based on a hedgehog and chestnut

    Were just guessing/speculating on what we have so far
    Of course views are going to change when more info is reviled

    Chespin: Hopefully will look like a fusion between Cacturne and Excadrill.
    Shooting for Grass/Rock for huge offensive upside
    More speed than Samurott. But a little lower attack and defense than torterra
    Reminds me of Cyndiquil in attitude
    Will probably have access to aerial ace, night slash, seed bomb, and stone edge. As well as Bulking up.
    If it can roll into a ball like Scolipede then Steeamroller and Rollout are possible

    Look at the Gen VI final evolutions made by a fan. They look pretty cool, huh!

    Personally the art looks ugly except the Froakie one since it has a pipe.

    Im not quite sure i like that interpretation of Fennekins evo. Somethings off for me but im not sure what it is. The Chespin evo looks about right and the Froakie one would make me laugh (in a good way) every time i saw it.

    I think it looks too bulky. Even with added fire/tail/coat design elements most of us expect Fennekin's final form to be more svelte. I can imagine that Froakie evo getting lots of controversy tho cos of the pipe (WTF POKEMON PROMOTES SMOKING *yawn*)

    I think they all look so... bulky. None of them look able to run fast. I need a damn fast starter damn it! But the Fennekin one... I believe that it's worse than a possible fire/fight...

    On another note anyone think that Chespin will be fast or slow?

    I'm not really a fan of these. I only sort of like Chespins to the point of if these were real I would pick Chespin instead of Fennekin who I adore.

    Thinking about Alpha Sapphire:

    Trainers from Bulbapedia (Kris from Spriters Resource),
    Gen I-IV Pokemon from The Spriters Resource, Gen 5 Pokemon from
    cSandoval on DeviantArt, Serena from tebited15 on Deviant Art,
    Gen III Pokemon from Bulbapedia

    My favourite starters by generation are
    1, charmander/squirtle
    2,cyndaquil, my 3rd favourite pokemon ever
    3,torchic/treeko
    4, turtwig/chimchar
    5, tepig/snivy
    6,fennekin

    Also the evos better be good. I don't really like the ones in the pics above.

    Agression, Destruction.

    I see Chespin's final form as an intermittent speed wise. He won't be fast, he won't be slow (I think). I'd guess speed ranks would be: Fenniken, Chespin, Froakie in that order.

        Spoiler:- Final Evolutions Fan Art - Big Image:
    I think the Froakie final form is the best Fan Art I've seen of Froakie's final form (haven't looked around, just what's been posted here). I guess it'd either be a pure Water type or a Psychic type from the design.

    I Chespin's to look somewhat like that. I like the design of him. Don't see him being a Steel Type, so Rock/Ground/Dark with Grass. I'd guess Ground and Grass type.

    I think Fennikin's is horrible. It lost every single ounce of being cute and doesn't even look majestic. It looks like a pure Fire type, but I really don't like the design there.

    I've always chosen the water starters, except for the first time I played Red/Blue when I chose Bulbasaur... So, unsurprisingly, I will choose Froakie! Also - I like the look of the Froakie evolution above, it looks amusing and pretty cool.

    I'd be happy if Froakie ends up as a water/fighting type since it'd be nice to have a different Pokémon to choose instead of always picking Poliwrath as my fighting type (since I don't use legendaries).

    No! I don't like Froakie's evolution, it looks like an old dude...just like Samurott. I want it to be slim and fast. Chespin's evolution is really cool, and Fennekin just got all its charm removed.

    The pipe on Frokie's seems out of place, but besides that I like it.
    Chespin's seems pretty perfect to me, dark and evil looking. I'd be happy with this.
    I can't really see Fennekin being that bulky. I think it's going to keep it's sleek design. All final starter forms do have fire on them, but I feel like having that much is a little excessive. I'm thinking it might have flames coming out of it's tail or around it's paws, but not the entire tail.

    I'm a huge supporter of the fighting/dark/psychic theory and none of those (bar the chespin evo) seem to fit it.

    Yeeeeeeeah I'm not seeing Fennekin growing all that bulky. A more skinnier appearence is what I'm seeing with its tail having not that much fire unlike the fan art.

    The evolution process is meant to be this way friend, Cute and cuddly at first level,bigger and less cute at second stage and Big and intimidating at Last stage evolution .

    Fanartm though Fennekin final evolution design look so smug, reminds me of Smugleaf!

    What do you all think?
    If it's Water/Fighting I'd like it to be like Infernape, a lean Fighting type with lots of Speed and mixed attacking stats.

    Slow. The shell makes me think it'll be kind of like Torterra, but with Emboar speed.

    I still feel like Froakie is supposed to be Ben Franklin and will pick up the electric type. I personally doubt the secondary triangle theory since the only part of it to make any sense is Fennekin gaining the psychic type.
    I'm sorry, were you expecting some kind of epic signature here?

    Well, charm ≠ cute.

    I still hope Froakie is slim and fast.
    I would like for Chespin final evo to be close that fanart.

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

    Sorry for the exaggeration but I really would like to see a slim look for Froakie's final evolution. Kinda like Toxicroak and Infernape mixed together. I see Chespin ending up like Excadrill which would be great and I don't think Fennkin will end up that bulky. It should be slimmer too.

    *Side Note*
    I hope people post up slimmer fanart for Froakie. Why are the majority of them so bulky looking??

    looking the range of artwork for possible evolutions they all seem very interesting.When we actually find out what types there evolutions will have will be quite intresting.However my prediction for the moment is that all 3 will maintain there single types.Chespins evos all being pure grass, Fenneki evos all being pure fire Froakie's evos all being pure water.Just because of gen 6 being sort of similar to gen 2 sort of hope i'm wrong though.
