    I can't see Froakie plushies being as attractive as Chespin plushies, to be honest.

    Cause economics/free market, popularity, and general human tendencies. Thats why I can say for sure that they won't be promoted equally.

    But like I said earlier, I'm using the literal definition of equal. Meaning exactly the same. ._. Thats literally impossible, especially with human tendencies to lean towards the one more wanted.

    Thats why I said "general" equality. :P
    They all get a good form of promotion, in their own way, even if its not totally equal. As close as we can get to equal.

    Honestly, I was just being technical :P

    Obviously, that's why they mentioned chespin.

    The Oshawott of a generation means the starter the majority accepts as cutest and the makers deem most marektable.

    Only if it gets a sand ability, which would be retarded.

    well a speculation for fennekin is fire/ground
    i'm still a fan of fire/psychic but a fire/ground would be cool too

    Exactly. Teh starters are the faces of the generation and are featured on the majority of toys we should discuss it.

    Until we have concrete proof of ingame stats and moves I think talking about them IRL is a proper topic.

    The only correct type is fire/fighting.

    I hate to agree on this. Also the possibility of Chespin being more popular as a plushy.

    Oh don't lie you have tons in your closet haha jk. When did you get the new avatar? Looks sick.

    What I would like chespin to have is the ability technician as a hidden ability (assuming they continue with hidden abilities) and make him a special attacker so you could teach him snarl and magical leaf or needle arm if he was a physical attacker

    Well, fire is my favorite type. and i usually choose the fire starter, but this is mostly because of the lack of good/fun fire pokemon in a lot of generations (IMO) that i could use instead. SO, can't really make a choice till i see the rest, and hopefully there is some bad*ss fire pokemon.


    If not, prolly Fenniken.
    If so, Prolly Chespin.

    i love collecting the plushies!!! the plushies always manage to get me hooked on pokemon i never really liked.
    i remember when i saw Stunfisk as a plushie, i just thought he was the cutest thing... when originally i hated him (he's creepy in-game) but as a plushie? adorable.

    anywho, i think the starters definatley will earn more popularity when the plushies come out. I wonder what froakie will be like, considering IMO he's the ugliest of the three.

    i agree with your final statement
    i have a feeling the plushies will not do him any justice though

    I've been the Fire-type Pokemon Social Group a couple of years ago until they abolished social groups, but I've got to say.. Fennekin is really still not working any magic for me.. I'm quite desperate to know whether there will be any good other options for the Fire-type. GenV was good for the Fire-type, outside of the obligatory starter, we got Volcarona, Chandelure, Darmanitan, Simisear, Heatmor, and two Fire-type legendaries. Pretty much a decent set compared to GenIV, sorry Magmorter and Heatran, you weren't enough..

    I'm dreading that Fennekin will end up as Snivy.. A decent pokemon, that I'll own, but I'll barely use..

    Two fire type legendaries? I can only think off Reshiram....

    What else was their?

    Victini, right. How'd I forget?

    But you know, it's still in it's unevolved form. You may like it better once it does evolve. I mean, I hate Oshawott but I love Samurott.

    I am just waiting for the evolutions to be revealed before I can judge the starters fully.
    Although I am leaning towards Fennekin right now...
