    It's possible they may have been referencing the move lists of the final forms at the move relearner, which do differ from that of their pre-evos at times.

    I'm more inclined to believe it's fake because of how OP the abilities on Delphox and Chestnaught are, though. Those two would be far too good at soaking hits if they actually had abilities like that.

    I'm going team Froakie. ^_^ Gerninja's awesome. But that means I have to find a non-Kalos electric type for Siebold if Heliolisk's stats are unsatisfactory. *Sigh* Does anyone know Heliolisk's base stats?

    I'm really curious to see how Greninja will be able to utilize Protean. Would have to know its entire moveset to get any ideas, though.

    If my understanding of Protean is correct, it would mean that it would get STAB from every move since it is changing Greninja's type to match the move. For example, if Greninja used Extrasensory it would change to a Psychic type so it gets STAB from it. I'd also assume that means it receives the respective type effectiveness of whichever type it currently is until it switches type by using another attack of another type. It would helpful for muscling your way through walls because of that extra power.

    I really like both Fennekin and Froakie. My original plan was to go with Fennekin as my starter, but I'm torn about it. I'm buying Pokemon X because I really want Mega Charizard X. This makes me feel like I should go with Froakie, plus I'm seeing people say if I pick Froakie I'll receive Fennekin later in that game.

    Oh, hey? Super Training is available so early and is unlimited to the extent that you can have your starter Pokémon fully effort trained before you actually start battling with it in earnest?

    That is wonderful news. It's always been a hassle to have to go back and re-train the Pokémon you've spent your whole storyline with (if it was even possible; I'm looking at you, 5th-gen-without-EV-reducing-Berries-outside-Dream-World!). Now just to figure out whether it'd be a waste of time to train my Chespin in Speed...

    That's how I'm hoping it works as it makes Greninja very flexible and allows him to conform to whatever situation thrown at it. It could be a great Pokémon with those options at its disposal.

    http://www.smogon.com/forums/threads...3489182/page-9 Contains base stats for most of the Pokemon who's stats have been revealed. They are not 100% accurate, but they're close to the real deal.

    I liked Fennekin.

    I liked Braixen.

    And dangit, I like Delphox.

    I stuck with my choice all the way through. I'll be a happy lass going into this game with my new fiery starter. ^^

    I did the same. :3
    Chespin since his debut, and Chesnaught is my favorite starter to date.
    I'm quite content with my initial choice.

    Same here too, but with Froakie. I knew his evolution wouldn't be a fat sumo frog like everyone thought back in February.

    Delphox might replace Blaziken as my favourite fully evolved starter.
    Fennekin was my initial choice and nothing changed.

    yup, and I knew Chespin wouldn't ever end up Grass/Dark despite it being my favorite type, and the huge amount of people saying it would be.
    And sure enough he wasn't. :3
    And I'm sooo happy it isn't.

    Heh, I think Fenniken's was kinda obvious pretty early. I'm so happy it breaks the Fire/Fighting mold. Now watch the next three gens offer Grass/Fighting types.

    I'd be quite alright a couple Grass/Fighting Pokes. As long as they're not in a damn row. T_T

    Hi everyone. Long time lurker first time poster.

    i'm so happy to see some all round starting evo love. I have been following the leaks as well as I really wanted to know what would be the finals before deciding. But when the first (middle stage) evo was shown, I thought maaan this is a hard choice... wait till final is revealed...
    Now with the reveal I just cant make up my mind.
    I see how a lot of people have love hate between the three, but I really think they have done a great job on all three and cant wait to get all three.
    Will be a hard choice to put into teams but with this large amount of pokemon in this game I think im going to have to rotate my party often.

    At the moment i'm thinking Chespin... soft reseting for female so I can breed and trade with others for the other 3.

    I was on Chespin's bandwagon at first, but swapped to team Fennekin when the second stage evos were revealed. While I'm still with team Delphox, I feel like they all fit the RPG class gimmick nicely. For GF to do something like this and have it work, it becomes obvious that they know what they are doing. What am I saying, let's all just enjoy the new games!

    I was Team Fennekin and while it is still so awesome Chespin and his durppy little face managed to win me over. Hise cute little face that just screams "Thankyou for picking me, i may not be as cool as the other starters but i'm just soooo happy to be here battling for you" it just connected with me for some reasons ahhahah

    froakie fan since day one and I had no doubt in my mind I would stick to its evolutionary line. I do think chesnaught is badass but I'll be using that in my second game after I finish one of them.
