    They can be new attacks though. I'm not sure. Either way, I can't wait to find out more about the game.
    Umm...jumping to conclusions...seriously.Chespin's attack is prob Aerial Ace

    Fennekin's attack is some Psychic type move and Froakie's is prob a Normal or Fighting type attack.Big whoop.

    This was the first trailer and there you just can't see the typing which lead us to just guess without any proper hint rather than its shape. I also hoped it was a Fire/Ground, but by that time the opinion were just too strong and lead to disappointing gen rather than anything else and dragged me into it. ;_;

    @Zalman: This time we have moves that are not related to the primary type. And even the other two cases being somewhat suspicious, we can firmly say that Fennekin is using a Psychic attack. Also, please check when ANY Fire Starter learns a Psychic attack (Notice that I say attack instead of Move)

    I watched the trailer again and paused it at the attack. The blue "saprks" don't actually look like sparks, they look more like they are an effect to show that the attack is hitting the Patrat, rather than to show it is an electric attack. So I still think it is Fury Swipes

    I think that the second attack Chespin used is probably a new move.

    Choosing Fennekin as my first starter unless it, again, becomes a Fire/Fighting. Then I'll probably choose between Froakie and Chespin based on what the first 2-4 Gym types are.

    Really hoping for some unique type combinations this Gen.

    To be honest though I also wouldn't care if all three simply went the way of the 2nd Gen starters and stayed pure Water/Fire/Grass throughout their evolutions. It would still be preferable to another Fire/Fighting.

    I want to see a powerful Legendary Kitsune Pokemon that I can capture in a Japanese-esque Temple/Shrine. Kitsune are awesome!

    I'd also really like to see new fossil pokemon in 7th Gen! I like fossil pokemon, ok?

    Preferably a Smilodon (Sabertooth Cat) and a Mammoth. You know, more Ice Age prehistoric fossils instead of Dinosaur Age and Cambrian Age.

    My thoughts exactly (but naturally, we'd all choose a nice fresh combination over that).

    Indeed. I think I remember some Fire/Flying suggestions with Tepig somehow using it's tail to bounce around. I really hope these starters are more like the DP starters in terms of type stats and movepool. They were all arguably the best choices of their respective types and along with Hoenn are the only set of starters I'd gladly all use. BW starters, while still good designs, really fell flat here. If you're going to give them to everybody they might as well be good.

    At this stage the three of them have potential, since we don't know their evolutions, typings, stats, movesets, etc. Maybe the three of them will be competitive monsters, maybe just one, or maybe all will go to the depths of NU. Nobody knows, apart from Gamefreak.

    I think the second attack of
    Froakie was quick attack
    Chespin was fury swipes or x scissor (didn't look like a dark attack)
    Fennekin was psychic

    And for all we know they may have nothing to do with the final evolved forms.

    Chespin's second attack is clearly Aerial Ace.

    Froakie's attack might have been Quick Attack, but the animation made me think of Fury Swipes.

    Also, Chespin's attack didn't look like either IMO. Fury Swipes probably won't be having such a "big and detailed" animation, since it is a common and not so powerful move. The animation doesn't look like it fits X-scissor, it looks more like Aerial Ace or possibly a new move.

    It's an Egg Move, not a level move. And Calm Mind is not an attack.

    Again...why GameFreak would show an Egg Move instead of the basic level moves? (Or the TM/HM ones)

    You said nothing about egg moves all you said was name a starter that learns a psychic attack and I gave you one.

    If I decide to get the game (don't have a 3ds), i'd choose Fennekin, do to cuteness, it being a fire type and IMO having a better design then the other two (even though it looks like a fire Zorua).

    Chespin and Froakie jut look ugly to me, at least for now (opinion may change when evo's are revealed).

    How do you know though? Every attack could look different now just like the way battles look different.

    I can't decide between Chespin and Froakie. Of course, I'll have to see their evolutions before I decide, but since the games are coming out at the same time this time we won't get to see the evos until the game actually comes out.

    Then again, somebody will probably leak everything before launch. Again.

    Watch it be Night Slash, then you'll analyze more clearly.

    You're right. My bad. I stand corrected then.

    BUT my reasoning still remains: There is no Fire Type yet that learns a Psychic move by level up. Fennekin seems to be a clear dual type in this trailer (As well as the other, with more hard-to-guess moves)

    Chespin is actually based on the first mammal,which just so happens to look similar to a hedgehog.

    I don't think it just looks like a hedgehog. The foreign names clearly have to do with hedgehogs, so there's more to the whole hedgehog thing than just looks.
