    Dont get a speed reducing nature. Never.

    Go for boost in sp atk or speed for it.

    I am planning to start off with Fennekin first for Pokemon X and then planning to use Greninja or Chesnaught in Pokemon Y..Delphox seems like a good Pokemon to use in your first play-though of X/Y

    Unless you're a TR attacker or bulky mixed attacker.

    Fennekin is good in special attack and special defense, and decent in speed.
    Chespin is good in attack and defense, and decent in HP (might have mixed that up)
    Froakie is good in special attack and speed, and decent in attack.

    That is really quite balanced...i hope they will be more useful than the Gen 5 Starters in competetive play

    I remember it being difficult to pick a starter at first. I liked the look of all of them upon the first announcement. A few months later, I started to debate between choosing Chespin or Froakie. And now, I'm full on Team Chespin! This will be the first generation in which my first choice is a grass starter, and I know I won't be disappointed!

    Greninja is my favorite so far. Its typing doesn't give it any resistances to weaknesses, but it doesn't get any 4x weaknesses either. I think that this is the most bizzare of the three, mainly due to the tounge-scarf.


    #TeamFroakie all the way
    nevermind XD

    EDIT: Derped. I keep thinking it's fighting. XD

    What? Greninja is Water/Dark. It does have any double weaknesses.

    e: I love how Froakie is now the most popular starter. Goes to show how much the final evolutions can sway someone's opinion.

    Froakie's Hidden Ability is Protean..? What is that? O.O
    Is apparantly Dragon Type in the Friend Safari. Neat.

    From what Joe said, it changes the Pokémon's Type to the type of the last move they used. So kind of a reverse Color Change.

    It's a misspelling of protein, the ability gives Froakie a protein drink.

    In all seriousness, I don't know.

    Ooh, that thing that Kecleon has? So, if my Greninja uses Close Combat, he will turn pure Fighting, or will his secondary Type remain? Or maybe we don't know that yet. ^^

    I like Fennekin and its evolutions better than the other two, but I already have a Fire type in my team (Talonflame) and I'm getting Charizard X, it just doesn't make sense to get another fire depite how much I love how Delphox looks. Go Greninja!
    *yawn*


    X Team

    - Greninja (Water/Dark)
    - Pangoro (Fighting/Dark)
    - Tyrantrum (Rock/Dragon)
    - Talonflame (Fire/Flying)
    - Aegislash (Steel/Ghost)
    - Pikachu (Electric)

    I'm definitely on the side of team chesnaught. Aways going to go with the least popular choice and even though I have grown to like the other two, I like him the best.

    I was initially pretty set on Chespin, but now I'm on Team Froakie. Although I do still wish that Froakie's end typing would've been Water/Fighting, and then have Chespin be Grass/Dark. I just feel like the Dark type doesn't mesh with the ninja appearance...he should be Fighting. Meh. Still <3 Greninja.

    I'm surprised Chesnaught is behind Delphox

    I wonder how we're gonna get Dream World abilities in this game. This sounds cool.

    Dark doesn't mesh with Ninja!?!?

    What the world do you think ninjas are?

    Ninja's are assassins that sneak around in the shadows and strike when no one is looking.

    Ninja's are known for their stealth, one of the reasons they wear all black

    I get that ninjas are all stealthy and hide in the shadows, but they are also combat oriented. I picture dark type as more monstrous, rather than like a ninja I guess. But to each his own.

    The starters seem to be inspired by the three classic RPG classes: fighter, mage, thief. Thief = Dark.

    People this day and age have some kind of bizarre view on ninjas

    I blame Naruto and the younger generation and their radical ideas
