    I think they gave us hints to what the starters might be later on as far as type goes. The video clearly had the starter pokemon do an attack to another pokemon that is weak against the attack. So I guess Chespin is going to be Grass/Dark, Fennekin is Fire/Ghost(I'm not a hundred percent on this but it would give a slight edge if Froakie does learn Fighting moves), Froakie is Water/Fighting (I think the glasses are more wise martial artist than I'm smart plus it was doing a physical move against a normal type)

    Am I the only one that sees Fennekin as a Lynx it explains the fur in the ears, the fur on the face and the bushy tail also it's Dutch name is Fynx also in chinese zodiac it could count as the cat.

    I swear if Fennekin becomes a bipedal fire/fighting type...

    Well, any fire/fighting type really.

    Chespin (dark)
    Fennekin (psychic)
    Froakie (fighting)

    Now we have a secondary rock paper scissors.

    Its very name indicates it's a fennec fox (which has fur in the ears).

    Fennekin look like a Fekkec Fox tbh. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fennec_fox
    And btw: Lynx is its German name, not Dutch. In Belgium and Holland, we just take the English names :3

    I just had a thought.
    fire/psychic, grass/fighting, water/dark?

    I can't really justify water/dark, but fennekin is almost, like 98.99% to be fire/psychic, that said, if their subtypes are psychic>fighting>dark it keeps the triangle for both their main and sub types.

    Oh, I've never seen a Fennec fox before.

    I think this generation is going to make me choose the fire-starter for once.

    Third, decided to see how foxes are represented in mythology to see what Fennekin could become. We've got the trickster archtype covered in Zorua and Zoroark. Vulpix and Ninetails cover kitsune and have always been associated with psychic moves and illusions, so the mystical is covered. But guys, guys, in at least one culture foxes are messengers for the gods. And she looks so svelte, and has those bits on her legs like other messengers in mythology!

    Fire/Flying fox, people!!
    Grass/Steel would be really cool IMO. It would instantly turn Chespin into an awesome starter.

    I bet that Froakie will become Water/Fighting for its second and third stage. It gives me the impression that it will.

    As for Fennekin (damn I love that name), I don't really see it becoming a Fire/Flying. I think that it will end up as a pure Fire type, or maybe Fire/Psychic.

    This is the first time I've liked all the starters since Gen II! I'm loving the designs of the Pokemon. I'll go with the Fire/Dark, Grass/Fighting, Water/Psychic theory though, since each type would trump its weakness with its second type.

    Another thought (because I seriously don't like the idea of Fire/Psychic, it would just make her too much like Ninetales for me), Fennec foxes are desert dwellers, right?

    Fire/Ground maybe?

    I can't believe it! Gen 6 already?! WOW! Anyway on topic my opinion on the starters:

    Chespin: OMG SO CUTE!!!! I think I found my starter choice already!

    Fennekin: A fox like starter?...Yeah I'm good with that, just please don't make it ANOTHER Fire/fighting evo GameFreak, I beg you!

    Froakie: It's.....interesting, but still pretty cute.

    So overall a nice set of starters. Let's hope their evos are even more/just as epic!

    I'll be starting with Fennekin, but Chespin looks interesting to. Froakie & Fennekin both have a minimalistic design to them that's always nice for enticing new people into the franchise. Looking forward to trying the Chipmunk, Fox, & Frog.

    Well, let's all hope ourselves better luck this time. I hope it's part Psychic or Dark or Ghost.

    I'm blown away! These games looks awesome.

    My guesses for the Starters final typing are:
    Chespin - Grass and Dark
    Fennekin - Fire and Psychic
    Froakie - Water and Fighting

    These games look to be amazing and I'm really happy about the Worldwide release date for October 2013!

    Yeah, I hope all the starters have one of the 'exotic' typings in their final form.

    I'm going Team Firefox myself [which definitely cannot be Fire/Fighting - please].

    Looks like I'm going to have to revise my sig pic soon lol I'm definitely leaning more towards Fennekin despite it basically being the love child of Vulpix and Zorua, but I swear if by some reason it becomes Fire/Fighting I will lose it. Definitely think it has a high chance of being Fire/Psychic, but I'll settle for anything else except it being just a Fire type, then it would be Ninetails unless it loses its vulpine characteristics.

    Also, here's to our first mammalian Grass starter!

    Not sure about the frog yet lol

    I'm definitely all for this:
    Chespin - Grass and Dark
    Fennekin - Fire and Psychic
    Froakie - Water and Fighting

    I feel sorry for Froakie, I think I'll choose it I like it's design and I bet it's final evolution will look extremely cool. Plus it doesn't hurt to get the upper hand on all those choosing Fennekin.

    I am hoping Fennekin is NOT for the love of everything sacred, a Fire and Fighting type. I just... can't anymore. However, the other two look mighty interesting as well. More so Chespin.
