    Could you please tell me what weird things GF has done?

    I hope we get introduced to the rival and the antagonist(?) team.
    I'm hoping the rival will be a girl, because we've only had female rivals in Gen 3 and that's if you chose to play as Brendan.

    May wasnt a rival.... she was the professors daughter/assistant you only battle her 4 times her pokemon never exceed 30ish she was just a minor step up from leaf and very similar to Lyra if you chose Ethan and Dawn if you chose Lucas just around while not actually contributing to anything!

    Wally was your rival in Gen 3

    Bianca was the first and only current female Rival we have had

    Yeah,but that alone seems a little incomplete...I wan't it to become something other than just a frog and a burglar...maybe to become a combination of a frog and a different animal.

    She was also your rival. Claim what you want but it's a fact that she is.

    You battle Brendan/May more often than you battle Wally, and Brendan/May received the stronger starter.

    They're both rivals, in a way.

    I'm predicting (considering the fighting/psychic/dark combo) :

    Chespin: Hp/Attack/Defense/
    Fennekin: Sp. Att./ Sp. Def
    Froakie: Attack/Sp. Attack/Speed

    Chespin with his shell could be defensive and probably also the bulky one (something between Sandslash and Torterra imo) with a good attack for fighting. Quite sure It will be the slower with a good defense against flying.
    Fennekin with those two special types will have good special stats (if not it's a shame). I mean if a fire/psychic pokemon does not have good sp. att. and def. is unuseful..
    Froakie has two special types too but Dark usually has more physical attacks than psychic so I think It would have a good attack too. Maybe it will be the one with less HP

    I don't think we'll have an all defensive starter this time. We had three [Blastoise (1), Meganium (2), Serperior (5)] on five generations.. It is also true that ther's never been a full defensive fire starter, it could be this time (I doubt).

    Seems legit. I'm hoping for this. Still can't wait for the second form, so we at least have an idea as to what they look like.
    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, looks like that thing on froakies back isn't a cloud (thank god)
    maybe we can start speculating some more feasible types for him again.

    I can't believe gamefreak violated the sacred tradition of the fire fighting starter.

    Haha, I can't believe you just called it a sacred tradition. I was so hoping for a water/fighting but I'm more than ok with a water/dark.

    What's with that? Seriously Fire/Fighting is the shit on any Fire starter. Plus the typing offers great STABs. But I don't have a problem with Fire/Psychic as it is double resistant to Fairy, assuming the type is real.

    well assuming you've heard about the rumors on pokebeach, which have now gained credibility, they claim the (final) starter types will be Grass/Fighting, Fire/Psychic, and Water/Dark.

    .............man chespin is getting raped by fennekin :/

    That's what many others predicted, including myself. I thought it would be Grass/Dark, Fire/Psychic, and Water/Fighting. Nonetheless, I'm ok with water dark because froakie seems to be the speedy/offensive one of the three and paired with some recent dark type moves and whatnot, it sounds like it could be quite a threat in competitive play. especially if it gets parting shot.

    I believe the point is that all of the starters rape each other in a clusterf*ck of type matchups. Chespin gets to rape Froakie (Grass > Water, Fighting > Dark), and Froakie rapes Fennekin (Water > Fire, Dark > Psychic).

    I always knew it was sea-foam. Obviously they wouldn't use a design that alludes to a future stage type for a starter.

    If Chespin has approximately 25 HP at level 7 as in the screenshot, can anyone work out roughly where his base HP would lie?

    I wonder how much froakies foam will be a part of his final form, I mean is he going to be a giant bubble. Damn I hope not cause I really like the little guy.
