    ^That would have been pretty cool, but then the starter triangle would be unbalanced.

    Some think it is coming from frozen, while others think it comes from frog. GF is the only ones who knows.

    well in that case it mostly likely means frog cause that's the only part of his name that indicates he is a frog

    Fro probablyu comes from frozen. I don't think we should assume he's going to be Ice-type because of his looks. When Oshawott was revealed I was sure it was going to be an Ice-type and see how that turned out.

    Except none of it's names mention anything about fro meaning frozen. For most likely comes from Frog or Froth(As in bubbles) and oak comes from Croak.

    Maybe it means ice or cold or something like that in an other language

    Then the ice type would be advantageous over grass and the water type would make it advantageous over fire. Unless the grass type had a secondary type that would make the ice ineffective, the water starter would easily overpower both other starters.

    If they continue with hidden abilities they should make froakie's moxie or sheer force. and definately water and fighting that would be amazing
    I claim Leafeon, Hydreigon & Volcarona!

    It could still work though. Look at Empoleon, he got screwed over. Infernape OHKO's him with Close combat and if for some reason Torterra moves before Empoleon it could OHKO with earthquake or at least do some decent damage. If Froakie is Water/Ice Game Freak would just balance it out, hopefully.

    Just because they didn't catch it or happen to mention it (maybe because they don't want to speculate beyond the fact that all they know is that he's a frog) doesn't mean we won't find out that it could possibly refer to a secondary ice type.

    i could see it being water/ice but chespin could still murder him but fennekins fire attacks would only do normal damage

    i say that is a pretty good stance at this moment as we know nothing. i have nothing against ice type (only fighting and that is reserved for fennekin) if froakie ends up getting it but at this instant this is too thin to speculate. even if this is a speculation forum.

    Also the only name that mentions anything ice related is english...

    I wouldn't mind it having Ice as a subtype, especially if there is a dragon gym or e4 member. If this is the case then Froakie I take back everything bad I said about you and will chose you as mah starter..................................... if not then you can go suck it.

    Well in Gen 4 Torterra's Ground Type was advantageous over both Infernape and Empoleon

    Until those false rumours came around I genuinely speculated myself that Froakie would evolve into a sort of wizard. My only reasons for thinking so was because of the world's stereotype with us British people and wizards. That, and a lot of fairy tales tell about frogs and magic.
