    For me, I could see Chespin being a pure Grass type. However, I hope it turn into a Grass/Fighting or Grass/Dark or even Gass/Steel

    Chespin is a combination of chestnut and pin. It may also be from chinkapin, the name of some species of chestnut.
    Harimaron is a combination of 蝟 harinezumi (hedgehog), 針 hari (needle), and marron (French for chestnut).

    So this what lead me to believe it going be a pure Grass Type since the only have a Chestnut and Pin and it's japan name is hedgehog and needle and marron (French for chestnut)

    For Froakie

    Froakie may be a combination of frog and croak.
    Keromatsu is a combination ケロケロ kerokero (onomatopoeia for a frog's croaking) and 沫 matsu (bubble or foam) or 飛沫 himatsu (spray or splash).
    and in French Grenousse fom grenouille and mousse.

    So Water and Poison doesn't sound off, but I hoping it's be Water/Flying or just pure Water.


    Now for Fennekin

    Fennekin is based on a Fennec fox.
    Fennekin may be a combination of fennec and kindle.
    Fokko may be a combination of fox, 狐 ko (fox), and 子 ko (child).

    Keyword Maybe

    I believe Fennekin going be a Fire/Ghost or Fire/Psychic because of a Spirit Spirit. I also believe it could be Fire/Rock or Fire/Ground because a Fennec Fox is a Desert Fox

    So to me
    Fennekin be mostly Fire/Rock Ground Ghost or Psychic. That if it's no pure fire type
    Froakie be mostly Water/Poison or pure Water
    Then Chespin all I really getting is Pure grass.

    Why is poor Fennekin being attacked for being a fox, we've had multiple fish Pokemon but you don't hear me saying "Damn, that ugly Feebass, looking like Magikarp, Pokemon is running out of ideas, geez"

    Vulpix was based of a mythical fox, Kitsune. Fennekin is obviously based of Fennec Fox. The fire typing is the only thing they have in common.

    I hope the starters have new moves that are really cool. Like not just one or two but multiple new moves stuff that stretches the imagination.

    I can tell you did a lot of research and I am sorry to say this but with how names have been lately in pokemon the chances are they are just names.

    Also Raguna there was Infernape and Swampert.

    Anyone else getting the idea that fennekin will be a fire/poison type? In the trailer that move it uses looks like a psychic type move but could very well be a poison move.

    If Fennekin has high Special Attack with Speed, and its typing Fire/Psychic it would be a great Special Sweeper.

    Fennekin, due to it's slim body, seems to be quite fast. I could see Froakie turn into a Snivy-like character, maybe slower than Fennekin but more offense-orientated (or vice-versa!) Chespin... I could see defense. Let's hope the final evos have some use in competitive battle!

    I'm hoping for a move that's signature for the starters. [Sacred Blast]

    But, I'm pretty much amazed at how the new starters turned out to be >.> Fennekin and Froakie are cool.

    Chespin... [Looks like a grass form of Dewott /shot]

    Fire is not the best type to be in OU at the moment due to heavy Rain abuse if thats what you are infering Takaru, but still if it is Psychic it could learn something a long the line of thunderbolt, and that would help Sun a lot.. if competitive pokemon isn't destroyed by this gen.

    No, not at all
    I'm almost sure that was a phy move.

    Not in the least

    I doubt they will ever make that typing

    Foxes are more of a spirit-like animal, so them having psychic, ghost and dark attributes makes more sense.

    I find all three Starter Pokemon to be reductive in their own way; Chespin looks like a Grass-type Dewott, Froakie is yet another Water-type frog Pokemon, and of course Fennekin has a lot in common with Vulpix and it even gives me Zorua vibes. But I still really like Fennekin.

    Oh, yeah. That would be cool, having the signature moves for these starters. I feel they are lacking in those special moves departments. I would love to see more of that.

    I know I said this already, but I can really envision Fennekin's evolution resembling a maned wolf. I think its line might go something like this: fennec fox- red fox- maned wolf.

    As for Froakie I think he may go along the tree frog design route, and I can see Chespin resembling a grass type version of something like Sandslash (minus the claws)

    Well I like the idea of Fennekin being something like fire/psychic or ground, but I'm getting the vibe of pure fire type from it for some reason. Also I'm thinking something similar for Froakie, or maybe a secondary ground type. Chespin seems to look like it could be pretty diverse, like possibly flying, maybe dark.

    Do you think they will make sprites for this gen or will we be stuck with 3d and drawings of the starters?

    It's pretty much bye bye sprites, probably. Although I think maybe we'll see sprites in the VS screens - the Iris/PC full-body sprites in B/W2 were interesting, I'm hoping to see a repeat of that.

    Ok...that might be an Ice type move

    so...what if Froakie is an Ice type?then the triagle is reversed...Froakie is weak to Fennekin and strong against Chespin>.>

    I'm interested in how the pokedex will work.
    Maybe the 3d pokedex will be used
