    I vastly prefer Froakie to be Water/Dark myself. It fits the image of a ninja to me a lot more than Water/Fighting. Plus I didn't want it to be like Poliwrath lol.

    At first I preferred Froakie, which was the least popular... now I prefer Chespin, which is now the least popular.

    Oh god, I have somehow become a hipster.

    But yeah he's suppose to be more on an thief line but still the frog inspired me for Jiraiya because of him using frog jutsus and summoning them in the series, although im starting with a female froakie to breed froakies for trading and stuff

    Naruto is the reason people on this forum have such a skewed idea of what ninjas are about

    To the point that people don't think ninja's would be dark type

    Nothing wrong with Naruto? You should really not go to Manga related forums then.. People have been talking about the destruction of any quality standard it may have once had for the last 7 years.... Not joking, every single chapter release is another storm of complaints forming.

    Picking Froakie regardless, staying true to my choice from the previous thread.

    im going for fennkin i suppose..
    i like fennekin and chespins evolution the most, for me the water one is a no go. i loved frogadier but the scarf totally turned me off.

    then its choosing between stats/typings and i guess fire/psychic fits me better.. but then theres the problem with the talonflame.. i like that pokemon a lot (just like goodras line but well its tie ^^)
    i dunno if its smart to go with 2 fire types in a team and my friend goes for fennekin aswell, its a tough choice.

    i heard you get the starter your strong against later on in the game, and since i dont want froakie.. this woudl give me yet another reason to go for fennekin.

    anyone has some advice to which to pick?

    At first I was team Froakie, but Chesnaught won me over. I can't get enough of the Juggernaut Hedgehog I just can't.

    Besides unless it was rock, he was bound to have a quad weakness to someone (grass/dark, grass/psychic). Grass has always been screwed over, it just matters how you use it!

    Anyone got suggestions for Natures for Froakie? I think I might go with Mild, +SpA, -Def

    He has a pretty nice Speed Stat, so I think I should be fine without a speed advantage nature.... Hmmm

    I'd go with modest cause his speed seems good,so getting his Sp Attack up might benefit him a lot

    I think Mild will do wonders.. Take advantage of that special, while still leaving room for it to go mixed, perhaps with Sucker Punch.

    What does Protean do?

    I will be choosing Fennekin, no question. Fennekin's design drew me in when it and the other starters' were first released. It looked quietly confident and a little bit pensive, which appealed to me more than Chespin's abandon and enthusiasm or Froakie's seeming shock at whatever it saw. The more I learned about its evolutionary line, the more I was hooked. I gravitate towards mage classes in TTRPGs, so the idea of apprentice-Fennekin, adept-Braixen and wizard-Delphox was a natural fit for me. The designs of the later forms also helped hold my eye. Braixen looked spunky and curious, sure of itself but eager to learn. Delphox looked like it had grown into its potential, and had the grace, elegance, and poise of a master. The typing, combining two of my favorite offensive types, clinched the choice for me.

    Anyone have any thoughts on which nature would be better for Chespin, Careful or Jolly? As of now I'm thinking of going for a Careful nature.

    Protean changes the Type of the Pokemon after the move it's used, according to some leaks from other sites:

    Example: Froakie uses U-Turn, Protean activates, changing his type to Bug. He uses Thief, Protean Activates and changes his type to Dark

    Rash might be good, he resists more elements that are more commonly special than he does physical, so he may NEED the defense, plus has a weakness to fighting, which is a pretty strong weakness

    Not that he has strong defenses either way, but a stronger defense might make him live longer.

    See I'm contemplating between Mild and Modest. Maybe I'll go Mild first and see how he fairs, then I can just breed for the Modest Nature hopefully.

    Thank you for your post! It would make sense for him to have a higher Defense due to weakness to Fighting. What about Fairy though? Is it normally Special or Physical?

    sounds pretty good and it is very similar to colour change. would be better if it changed before it used the attack to gain stab. however, it may be a double edged sword. you may use an attack that makes you weak to your opponent, but it seems pretty good.

    That could be very useful, if Froakie wants to avoid getting hit SE, switch to a safe type.

    Does the activation take place before or after using the move because if it switches before, he could get STAB for it.

    Whoever predicted that the official 2-d art would look better than the 3-d models was correct.

    I think I know what seems off to me about the models: they're outlined in black. Was that necessary?
