    Team Froakie all the way! Has been there since day 1. Greninja turned out perfect imho. Water/Dark type ninja / thief like appearance = win! I'm glad that my water starter tradition can go on. I've always had a hard time finding a good surfer I like on my other games.

    I got my Y copy today and soft resetting for the starter with the right gender and nature is a pain this time :/

    Well. the big starter-question have bothered me more than ever. I originally wanted Chesspin, but seeing as it evolves into a double Flying-Type weakness, among With the worst design out of the evolutions, I don't think I will og for it. Still love Chessnaught though..
    Then there was the Fox. The Fox looks like it's strong and not too slow, at least until its final evolution came out. It looks.. okay-ish. I love Fire-Types, and Psychic-Types are cool too. I'll have to wait for its stats until I finally decide. I was hoping it was a fast Pokemon, but it doesn't look very fast.

    then there's the Frog. The frog was the one I disliked the most at the start, but its evolutions kinda won me over. Greninja.. does it wear its tounge as a scarf.... what?
    It's a Dark-Type, it looks very fast, and it's probably decent strong, so I am about 75% sure I'll og for Froakie

    Hey, adding Goomy isn't fair, it will take away all the votes from the poor starters.

    I decided early on that I would wait until I saw all their evolutions before I would choose, now that Ive seen them all, ill be choosing Froakie.

    The starter Pokémon was always a big deal for me, it can make or break the start of the game. Bar gen 4, there's always been at least one starter I liked, and this time, Fennekin was sadly the *only* starter I liked. So I decided I had to go with that one. I love Braixen, and I've warmed up to Delphox a lot more recently. I'm so jealous of the people who have their copies already, I get mine tomorrow midnight, but it's looking like it's going to be Delphox for me.

    I'm definitely going with Froakie. Been choosing him since the day I first saw the three starters.

    Anyone knows what is the best nature for Froakie?

    Any ideas about good natures for each of the starters (based off of leaked stats, etc.)?
    Looking at Chespin in particular!

    Chespin all the way! It's going to be interesting to see which way the poll will go now that we know the final evolutions of the starters.

    I voted for Chespin, but I don't know which starter to go... Chespin or Froakie?

    I love Froakie and Quilladin.
    Chespin and Frogadier are really nice.
    Chesnaught and Greninja are equally nice.

    There isn't a "best" nature, really. It depends entirely on what you're trying to do with it, and in Froakie's case, it has the stats to support mixed sweeping.

    I'm personally going with Modest, though, as its speed stat seems plenty good enough as is (Estimated base 120 as Greninja), and I'm not really a fan of mixed movesets.

    Any suggestions for Chespin? (Grass)
    Haven't seen stats posted for Chesnaut so can't make a judgement myself..

    Take something that boosts Defense or Attack, as those are its two highest non-HP stats, though Defense is significantly higher then the latter.

    Yeah, soft resetting for these starters takes longer than pretty much any gen (unless you're looking for a nature in B/W).

    I'm having atrocious luck finding a Froakie with a nature that doesn't reduce Special Attack or Speed. I can't even find one with a neutral nature.

    I like all three starters. Delphox is my favorite, but I'll be using Chesnaught for my first playthrough, simply because it fits the team I'm planning a little better.

    I'm guessing a modest or timid nature would benefit Delphox the most?

    On January 8: Fennekin.
    On October 10: Fennekin.

    Nothing has changed. Braixen and Delphox just added beauty and mystic wizard theme to Fennekin line. A dream come true.

    Such a tough choice, but i'll have to go with Fennekin just because of the awesomeness that is Delphox

    I'm actually feeling pretty torn between Froakie and Chespin. I like Fennekin and its evolutions but I don't think I'll choose it. I've always been a big fan of Froakie and its evolutions are really cool, but at the same time Quilladin and Chesnaught have really grown on me lately.

    Initially I said Fennekin. I'm going to be sticking with that choice, I was not at all disappointed with its evolutions in the end. Only hesitation I suppose was with Braxile (at the whole another fire-starter bipedal deal, but even then I liked its design and basis, so :V).


    For fun, the pre-release poll of starter choice from the previous thread!


    Chespin - 845 (26.83%)
    Fennekin - 1,329 (42.19%)
