    I absolutely love the starters! The water type may be similar to the tympole line, but that doesn't really bother me. It still looks amazing!

    ...Am I the only one who WOULDN'T mind if Fennekin turns out to be Fire/Fighting? Honestly, typing means nothing to me regarding starters. All of you are kinda overreacting, truthfully. -_-

    I will have to agree with anyone saying the Fire/Fighting combination needs to stop. Its been done to death. So far out of these 3 designs I'm not really digging Chespin all that much but Froakie and Fenneken both look adorable! I think my favorite has to be Froakie out of the 3.

    I was astonished by the sheer amount of Fennekin artwork they were able to produce in three hours. That's jawdropping.

    I could totally see Froakie getting some type of Prince looking evolution line.

    I keep thinking that Chespin is going to be Grass/Fighting he looks like he could throw a punch or two.

    Gotta say all three starters look interesting, but gonna wait til we get an idea of their evolutions before deciding which one I prefer.

    Fofo's Evolution has to be Fire/Psychic.

    You're not the only one, I wouldn't mind it either. But Fennekin (^^) looks like the perfect candidate for Fire/Psychic IMO.

    I never said it was, but it's always had a mystical/psychic undertone, at least for me (yes, I am one of those people who, at the start, was amazed that Ninetales was a pure-type). I'd like to see them mix it up a little more. Flying and Ground can both work as secondary typings given mythology and biology, and if we go with the theory that Fennekin was just mirroring a psychic move used by the ralts, well, Mirror Move is a flying attack...

    No one is overreacting. Not having a fire starter that isn't part fighting for over 10 years is atrocious(Not counting remakes). If GF wanted Fire pokemon to be to handle rock types then they could've used Fire/Ground or Fire/Steel instead of 2 more fire/fighting types.

    It's not really even that similar, aside from being based on Frogs and that, they look very different still. Water is a logical choice for a Frog based creature too.

    I see Froakie being overall different from Tympole's and Tadpole's lines, aside from having Water type in common(Maybe a secondary type too depending on if it gets one or not and what it is).

    I wouldn't say anyone is overreacting(Maybe some people are, there's always going to be people who overreacting to something though). But the thing is, there's been three Fire/Fighting starters in a row, it's pretty understandable that people would get tired of it. Some people just like diversity or just don't like repetitiveness, nothing wrong with that so long as people don't take things to far.

    I wouldn't have any real issue with it being Fire/Fighting, but I can't say I wouldn't be disappointed. I would rather have something different for once.

    I like them all but will probably choose Froakie or Chespin, altough I do quite like Fennekin. Wonder what the names are derived from that would give a vague idea on typing...

    I've posted these on another forum, but I might as well throw these up here because...well, it's the Pokemon forum.

    Chespin - Chestnut and Pin

    Fennekin - Fennec and Kindle

    Froakie - One part is Frog, other part is either Croak or Cloak.

    Water/Fighting seems logical for Froakie.

    As for Chespin, Grass/Dark typing seems adequate too. Although with that typing its line would be incredibly similar to Seedot's line.

    I have a feeling Mozilla will be a very popular nickname for Fennekin.

    Well, if it is grass/dark, one can only hope that its movepool isn't as god-awful as the Seedot line.

    I can totally see that happening. This is an European-based region.

    It's just fitting that the frog evolves into a prince of sorts.

    Fennekin is adorable and I've already chosen it. Unless I really hate its final form. I will be happy with anything that's not Fire/Fighting. (This is a rut that GameFreak need to get out of.)

    Froakie is pretty cute and I'd be happy to use him. I'm pretty meh about Chespin, but it's always possible he could evolve into something great.

Just thought you would be interested.

    This was just what I was thinking though I think a dog would be more likely than a tiger. Unless they have decided to move away from this theme of course.

    Also while I will miss the old design having a portable version of a Colosseum equivalent will make for some interesting map puzzles and general Pokemon hunting I think based on the trailer.
