    This sounds plausible. Hedgehogs/porcupines tend to be bulky. Well, as bulky as hedgehogs can get anyways. Froakie looked fast in the trailer, and a failry good of majority aren't bulky. Don't know about fennekin, foxes tend to be on the slender side, but who knows.

    If chespin ends up being a tall bulky hedgehog, like what a lot of the fan art is guessing, I'll love the guy.

    What do you guys want to bet will be the number of chespins named sonic if ends up looking clearly like a hedgehog?

    Uh..... *hides my idea of naming chespin Sonic* although I named some of my water starters after him not all but like 3 don't ask why

    I am still going for fennekin though let's just hope she is not fighting I'm tired of that combination on the starter its too much for a charizard lover xD

    I think I'm leaning away from choosing Fennekin. For some reason, I never like the most praised one. I can't decide between Froakie or Chespin. Chespin looks like a mix between Nuzleaf and seedot, and I always liked that evo line. But, I also liked all the frog pokemon that Ken Sugimori/Whoever else made.

    I think chespin or froakie will have the best chance for getting fat.
    Chespin has the most chance, because we already have a fat water frog/toad...

    Away with you sir! Or Madam. Ah, just kidding. I don't think I wanna search the gts for 'em, though. I don't like frogs or foxes, so chespin will hopefully end up being good.

    Yeah, I can see blaziken and infernape, but emboar should've been ground or something.

    Its out there, but what if chespin ends up being grass/poison? Because of the spines he'll probably get being a hedgehog?

    This would never happen, but i woudn't mind if in the future or even in 6th gen if they made the starters almost like a pseudo-legend type deal but made the evolution's much harder to get so that it would even out with the advancing of the story.

    Also, I think that all the starters will be speedy, I mean none look like they could turn out a Snorlax.
    I don't think any if them will be slow like you said either lol
    But according to bulbapedia it does say he's based off of an acorn
    I meant chespin doesn't look like a chestnut but he's based on one

    And I'm really hoping for Water/Electric for Froakie since he looks so much like Benjamin Fraklin, and the ties between frogs and rain/storms.
    My hopes for Chespin is that he becomes some kind of humanoid. I DONT want another Excadrill, like this or this. I just want him to look cool
    Pfft, are you kidding me? I'd have a heart attack of happiness if he looks like those two!

    We know that. But think about it: most poison Pokemon can use Toxic Spikes and Spikes are just like spines, so it seems likely Chespin will be a Hedgehog or Echidna.

    I know they don't. I thought it'd be an interesting tie in with its spines and his grass typing. He'd be immune to being poisoned, and turn bug into normal. Not bad for gaining one more weakness.

    Also, at I'm least not repeating the rock/ground/fighting/dark for hundreds of pages. Granted I could see rock or ground, but let's move to different types a bit, shall we?

    but i also don't see how it would be all that bad.
    it would make the pseudo legends more rare, and as long as they balanced the story and the evolution of the starter correctly it wouldn't effect the in- game all that much.
    it would also bring in a huge balance to the competitive scene having 3 pseudo legends that counter each other.

It'd add to the list of pokemon i feel very sorry for, Glalie, Serperior, all other pokemon that lost limbs (arms and legs mostly) when evolving.
    Togekiss lost its hands.

    Anyways, the Japanese name is usually the more accurate interpertation of species type. According to bulbapedia, Chespin's Japanese name, Harimaron, is based on a combination of Harinezumi (Hedgehog) and Hari (needle). I think it's safer to assume that Chespin is more related to Hedgehog than it is to a Nut.

    Of course, this is all my spectulation.

    yeah but it would make the starters imbalanced
    and your rival would be a pain to kill if he gets the pseudo starter

    You forgot the "maron" part, which comes from Marron, the French word for chestnut.

    Shinies are not listed in order, for example the last shiny on the banner is not always the latest shiny I've obtained.

    In all Honesty I hope that Fennekin becomes Fire/Fight*shotshotshot* But I want it! It could finally be a Purely Special Fighting Type for once! It could then run an effective set of Focus Blast/Overheat making it nearly unressisted (Mantine and other Water/Flying types). it would be a killer type combo if it was special!

    Your actually not alone...
    Even tho I'm not picking it
    I would love to see it become somewhat like meinshao design wise...
    But a sp.attack fighting would be great
    I'd love for fennekin to be the one to redeem fire fighting for the starter type.

    Focus Blast sucks. There's a reason people call it Focus Miss. A physical Fire/Fighting has access to Blaze Kick, Flare Blitz, Close Combat, Superpower and Hi Jump Kick which are all great moves. Furthermore they all have a good enough spatk to make use of Flamethrower.
    Anyway, I don't think we have to fear that that Fennekin could become part Fighting. GF must have realised that Fire/Fighting is becoming stale and will choose one of the other 17 combinations.

    All of the existing Fire/Fights have at least a base 100 Sp. Attack, Infernape even gets nasty plot, so you can go all out special with ape.

    What if one of the starters gains a Normal type?It would be sort of interesting in my opinion.I kinda wish Normal moves were super effective on something.And maybe Poison types could've been super effective on Normal types.This way,the two types would be more useable and interesting.
