    I hope whatever Fennekein evolves into is equally as awesome or I will be disappointed.
    Chespin's head looks odd to me though, the green spikes are strange.
    Froakie is cute, I think it will be a Water/Fighting type just like Poliwhirl

    Forgive me if this has been mentioned before because I have not yet taken the time to read all 9 pages of posts, but I believe that Chespin's evolutions will either be pure Grass or possibly Grass/Steel as hedgehogs/porcupines have obvious means of defense and it seems to fit. As for Fennekin, I believe its evolutions could be Fire/Ground or Fire/Rock because Fennec foxes are native to desert regions and Rock or Ground could mirror that effectively. Lastly, Froakie's evolutions could take a couple different paths: staying pure Water, becoming Water/Psychic because frogs/toads are synonymous with witches and wizards and Froakie's "spectacles" could also point towards this connection, and possibly Water/Poison if the designers took a poison dart frog approach, though this option seems the least likely of the three because I think Forakie would be a lot more colorful if it were to represent a poison dart frog.

    That cute little blue frog is the best. Froakie is adorable.

    I tried to resist myself from this Pokemon surprise, but Youtube just happened to spoil it, so... Geez, Gen 6 came faster than I thought it would. The people who predicted a new region were... right. Anyhow, opinions:

    I can totally see me using Chespin. That happy smile is just so... happy. Also was that a Dark type move I saw it use in the trailer? Hmm...

    Fennekin makes sense. They base the Fire type starters off of the Chinese zodiac, but I didn't think they'd use a fox again. Vulpix and Ninetales have competition... I do like Fennekin though, probably the most out of the three. Looks quiet AND SHE HAS FIRE IN HER EARS. The one thing I'm hoping for is for the love of all that is good, please don't become a Fire/Fighting type! This guy looks like it would use more Special attacks than Fire ones, so it doesn't look like the case.

    Froakie! So fun to say. Just as fun to say as Loki! Froakie! That's it, naming my first Froakie, Loki. Or maybe just Frog. I've been playing Chrono Trigger for the first time recently and I've gotten that connection. Why does he have a white hood? He has like a white thing on him. For those comparing him to the other Water frogs, this guy already starts as a frog, not a tadpole, so we'll see what he becomes. My prediction is that it will just stay pure Water.

    I'm not one to predict secondary types so much (because I'm almost always wrong), but my initial thoughts are that Froakie will probably stay the same, or may even develop a water/grass combo. As for Fennekin and his/her "psychic" attack, it is worth pointing out that I think he/she was fighting a Ralts at that moment. Could just be a reversal/mirror coat move? Doesn't immediately suggest psychic.
    I dont think that a starter would get a second typing that is the same as one of the other starters. Froakie looks like it can end up being pure Water, Water/Fighting (Journey to the west reference, like Infernape and Emboar) or Water/Ice.

    I still support the idea that Fennekin (I will never get tired of that name) will end up as Fire/Psychic.

    I think I'm most intrigued by Froakie. After having the Poliwag line and Tympole line, I'm curious to see how Froakie and its evos will differ in terms of what its evos will look like, its typing, and its moveset.

    I'm also curious to see how Chespin will evolve. It's pretty cute looking now but if its partially based on a porcupine/hedgehog, I'm interested to see what it'll become. It might be more fierce looking as it'll evolve.

    It seems that Fennekin seems like a popular pokemon right off the bat. To be honest, it's not my personal favorite. It looks like a cool pokemon and I like it. It's just that I feel like it's a pokemon that I'm not as curious about as the others.

    Overall, a nice looking bunch of starters. Now we just have to wait for their actual typings and even further down the road, wait for their evolutions.

    One again, the grass starter looks the least appealing to me. It's like they want me to always pick the water or fire starter. Fennekin is my favorite one this gen. And the one I will pick first.
    You know your name better than I do. YAY!

    Usually I always go water-type on the first version I start, since I buy both.
    It's usually a toss-up between grass-type and fire-type for the second version I play.
    NOW, I may start with fire-type Fennekin. It's the odds-on favorite and although I'm not particularly impressed with Froakie -- I'm sure it'll look better after it evolves.
    Usually the grass-types are average and fire-type is the let down...but, Chespin I just can't find any appeal in...
    So it's all Fennekin/Froakie for me.

    I wonder of the other Pokémon that will be revealed have their international names with them too, or just their Japanese names. Like the evolutions of the starters, the typical regional bird, the Pseudo Legend, etc etc.

    Don't even joke about that. I'd love to choose Fennekin, but I'll start to completely ignore its existence if it's given a Fire/Fighting evolution.

    I know people complain about how we have had Fire/Fighting starters for 3 gens, but it actually isn't bad. Fighting is one of the only types that a Fire type can be paired up and don't get screwed up. Imagine if Fennekin ended up as a Fire/Rock, it would totally be screwed.

    Not too fond of any of the starters this time around, but I'll probably end up picking Froakie. First time I've picked something other than grass since gen 2, in fact.

    The problem is that we're getting that same combination multiple times in a row. It got tired and boring, as you see with everyone asking for it not to happen again.

    It also prevents other interesting combinations, both for the Fire starter and for others (Dewott and Samurott would have been perfect Water/Fighting starters).

    I'm not sure what to really think about the whole Dark/Psychic/Fighting secondary types for he starters, I do want them as it appears many do and expect it to be but I'm pretty sure it was like this last time too. Wasn't it a very popular idea that Oshawott would end up Water/Fighting due to it's evolutions and all, and showing to have Revenge, yet it ended up just being Water.

    In terms of evolutions I can see:
    Chespin-Hood thingy being expanded on. Tail being a lot more different. Maybe it'll get some claws, unless it's going to be a slapper. I see it having the same kind of body shape throughout.
    Fennekin-Those tuffs(Or whatever they'd be called) in it's ears I defiantly see being expanded on, maybe even end up being actual fire...although maybe that would be a little much, but hey, at least it can honestly say "My ears are burning". I think it's tail could also maybe burst into flames(The whole thing is just going to be one giant fire fur ball). I imagine it's body being leaner(Something like Virizion's body shape, just even thinner).
    Froakie-Whatever that thing on it's back is, it's getting expanded on. Maybe it's nose or whatever that is will get expanded on too. I see it getting bulkier upon evolving.

    Cool to see a grass starter that's based on a mammal for once! Can't say i really like any of the new starters (yet), but time usually solves that. Excited to see their evolutions and type! Glad we probably won't be seeing Fire/Fighting. Fire/Psychic would be really cool. Those white balls in front of Froakies eyes remind me of small glasses, he looks like a intelligent Pokemon somehow.

    Happy my bro got me a 3DS this Christmas, guess I'll have to get him one now.

    I like the Japanese name better: FOKKO! Froakie's just freaky.. I like it! xD

    Based purely on looks, I'd say we're getting a grass/fighting, water/ground, and a plain fire type, but possibly fire/psychic. And I'll be getting Fennekin.

    So I'm pretty sure I'll go with Fennekin for my main game and Chespin for my secondary (I always get both versions). Nothing wrong with Froakie, its a unique Pokemon, but I'm not as enticed by it as I am by Fennekin and Chespin. I'm sure millions are already planning to nick name Fennekin Mozilla. XD

    I love how people are jumping all over the Dark/Psychic/Fighting secondary triangle again. Happens every generation without fail.
    I s'pose anything is possible.

    I like this batch. So much more than I liked the last batch. And the fourth gen's less-than-exciting starters are long forgotten at this point.

    That said, I base my starter choice off of the final evolution. Or I have in the past, not sure if I'm gonna follow spoilers this year. S'gonna be difficult. haha.
