    Wouldn't a type that gets rid of one/a couple be better?
    Yo, fellow Poke' lovers! My favorite is Feraligatr, but I love most pokemon. I've lots of pokemon hatched/caught, are willing to trade some.

    Can breed a lot of pokemon, I have POKERUS, lot of HA pokes, PM me if you are willing to trade.

    Well-they did reuse Shell Armor on two starters, but I'd rather have Levitate or summin'

    I think fennekin will be speedy enough to not need that.

    could, but I don't see fennekin being a tank of anything. He looks like you could kick him into the stratosphere.

    You're right.I think it'll have a huge sp attack and decent speed.

    Me too. I think the fennekin: high speed/sp atk, chespin: tank with decent atk, and froakie: mix prediction is probably correct.

    But this is only Fennekin's first evolution, and not last. Though you do have a point. He does look rather easy to beat.

    I hope they don't screw him over like they kind of did to Snivy, who don't get me wrong, is a great Pokemon. But the Speed and Defense thing wasn't a good direction at all.

    Speaking of DW abilities these are abilities that I want on the starters:

    Chespin: Hyper Cutter or Shell Armor
    Fennekin: Magic Guard
    Froakie: Technician

    I personally think they either surprise all of us and just kee them all their basic types all teh way through or...Since fennekin is a fenec fox it will be fire/ground (hence they live in the desert) Chespin will be Grass/normal or grass/steel, and Froakie will be water/flying, or water/ice

    I like chespin the most. Usually, i don't pick grass starter pokemon. I'm a water kind of guy. When the game comes out, i'm most likely going to pick chespin but keep it at its first stage. As said in previous games, Pokemon learn moves faster when they haven't been evolved yet. Fennekin is my second favorite, because fennekin just looks like it will be so powerful. Froakie, a water type starter, is actually at the bottom of my list for once. I've always had a water type starter as my favorite. I observe the "mustache" on Froakie, and i think that it may grow with its evolution, (a full out beard perhaps).

    Maybe so but you gotta figure that they have to keep making games geared towards children, because that is their target audience. As much as pokemon evolves, it is always going to be a children's game with a few more complex things for their original fanbase (EV training, breeding for natures/IVs, etc.). Basically what I'm getting at is they don't give two craps about their adult fan base.
    LF: Mew, Jirachi, Deoxys, Darkrai, Shaymin, Genesect, Meleotta, Keldeo

    Have plenty of legendaries and some shinies for trade. Also tons of 5 IV pokes and mega stones.

    actually they focus on both in case you didn't know...
    which is why all pokemon are either based on real animals or mythology that you payed no attention to when you were little and keeps me interested TBH
    and that still doesn't mean they can't redeem water starters with better stats
    they hold many tournaments which does let us know they acknowledge their older fan base

    kinda hope froakie gets stats similar to blazikens stats
    mainly to save water starters from their usual mediocre stats

    Can we not argue about the moves again, seriously! It always the same "Chespin used Aerial Ace, no it used Night Slash!" Some of the moves could be egg moves

    If they let Fire/Fighting Fennekin evolution learn Sky Uppercut like Blaziken, maybe they will make it so that the flying resitance is nullified and Normal/Flying, Rock,Flying, will be SE by Sky Uppercut.

    As much as I'd like the starters to have secondary types, I can just see them keeping their normal typing. Besides Fennekin, that is. I dunno, 3 Fire starters in a row that gained a Fighting type, I'm just doubtful they'll break the chain, as much as I'd love them to. Still, Fennekin is a cutie and it'll be the first Fire starter I'll go for since Charmander!

    usually they are always medicore and many things keep them from doing too great in battle
    the only two that i find good enough are feraligatr (the only water starter i use) and blastoise
