    This combination needs to happen. The balance is just about as perfect as they come.

    well rock/fire/steel is another perfect triangle the way fire/grass/water is haha.

    I doubt Chespin will go Grass/Dark. Dark is called Evil type in Japanese, so I doubt they'll slap the typing on a starter.

    My prediction for Chespin goes to either Grass/Normal (unlikely), pure Grass (Possible) or maybe even Grass/Rock or Grass/Ground. Grass/Rock is a really good typing, and I wouldn't mind Chespin getting it. But grass/ground seems more likely, since it gives off the vibe of a mole (I know it's not based on that, just a spectulation). Oh wait, checked Bulbapedia, and it's based off a hedgehog, so Grass/Ground is definitely up there in terms of likeliness.

    Not a big fan of Fennekin, lol. IMO I think it might turn out pure Fire, or Fire/Psychic, or Fire/Fighting if Gamefreak wants to troll us..

    Froakie... Ah... It looks like a Pure Water material, but if it was, I'm not gonna be happy. I could see it going Water/Flying or Water/Normal for the latter since its Japanese name is based off splash/bubble.

    Anyway also notice that Froakie seem to share colour similarities with Thundurus? If it goes Water/Electric I will fly across the room.

    CryGODDAMIT!

    Anyone thinking of any types for Fennekin besides Fire, Fire/Psy, Fire/Fight, Fire/Rock or Fire/Ground?

    Although I'd love Psychic fennekin, I've always wanted a Canid Fire/|Electric Starter...

    If you look at the animation it clearly uses Aerial Ace, compare the animation of the move to the gen 5 animation of the move, it's obvious!

    Looking at this, froakie has to stay thin and I bet he is speedy



    Fenekins move idk, its definitely psychic to me.



    Chespins seems like a slash of some sort


    I know this has been talked about and what not
    Maybe moves have nothing to do with them.

    What do you all think?
    I know its not much but trying to fuel the discussion until there's some new information

    ^THIS. There is nothing else to speculate about...well, besides whether or not Chespin's hood is detachable like Oshawott's Scalchop. (My vote goes to yes, which would be their ONLY similarity!!)

    Froakie's attack looks...original to me. Like, its not necessarily anything we've seen in the past Generations. Possibly a Fighting-based Water-type attack (like Swampert's Muddy Water).

    No comment on Fennekin's attack. :/ The light pink does make me think Psychic though...

    Chespin's attack looks like Shadow Claw, imo. Its not light blue like Flying attacks usually look but its not black like Dark attacks usually look. It seems dark purple like Ghost attack...

    It is only the attack that makes it look speedy. That's what I think. Whoever the pokemon it is, if it uses Acrobatics, it will look speedy 'cause it's a fast attack.

    Otherwise, where will I find the new info' that will appear in the Coro'thing?
    Oh my Feebas !

    I'd say not, maybe the leafs on top
    Also I think chespins tail will bloom
    That red tip has me wondering many different things.

    It could be just a quick attack variation
    But I really hope Froakie stays thin.

    His tail blooming? ...I never thought of that. It's very possible.
    He could become GRS/PZN and his tail would be a stinger...

    I like all three starters! I'll choose Fennekin all the way on my main version (will be X)! Froakie would be my second choice on the second game (Y)

    I feel their types and stat distribution (when they evolve) will be:

    Chespin: Grass/Ground
    Fighting kind: Bulky, kind of slow
    Highest stat(s) in: defense/special defense
    Lowest stat(s) in: speed

    Fennekin: Fire/Psychic or Fire/Electric
    Fighting kind: Fast, special attacker but frail
    Highest stat(s) in: speed, followed by special attack,
    Lowest stat(s) in: physical defense


    Froakie: Water/Ice or Water/Fighting
    Fighting kind: physical attacker, medium speed
    Highest stat(s) in: physical attack and HP
    Lowest stat(s) in: special attack (if part Fighting) or physical attack (if part Ice)

    This would make me happy-as long as Fennekin isn't Fire/Fighting and looks different to Ninetales i don't mind having another Fire type fox.

    I personally think that his tail will turn into a mace. This is because since his name is from the word chestnut, the mace on his tail would resemble a chestnut's spiky outer casing.

    Also, we know that this is the speculation thread and you are free to speculate the possible designs of the starters' evolutions. But we encourage everyone to please try and refrain from posting Fakemon without supporting the idea. At least elaborate on why you think the specific starter will evolve into such creatures.

    Judging by the speculation I have seen so far, i feel Chespin's secondary type, if it exists, will be a defensive type like Rock or Steel. Fennekin will likely be Fire or Fire/Psychic, but Froakie... is puzzling me. What could it be? Electric? Ice? Flying? Fighting? All seem to fit in. Oh dear...

    an electric or flying secondary typing sounds kinda dumb for froakie
    ice or fighting makes a little more sense IMO
    and there are plenty of defensive pokemon that don't have a rock or steel typing
    i mean look at lapras it has the terrible ice typing but it is pretty defensive

    Most of my friends, upon first glance, classified Froakie as 'that ice frog'. Come to think of it, it does look a bit icy...

    Except for Oshawott, his name doesn't imply that he's an ice type.
    Froakie has been speculated to be part ice type because of the "Fro" in his name.
