    Default What is your favorite Kalos starter?

    This is basically about what your favorite Kalos starter is and why?

    My favourite is Froakie because it looks great as a Greninja and is pretty fast.
    The runner up is Fennekin because it is a fire starter that didn't evolve into a fire/fighting pokemon and Delphox looks cool with it's wand.

    I like Froakie mainly because it evolves into Greninja (I'm partial to dark types, and I almost always pick the water starter).
    Chespin would be my second choice since it's really cute and I like that it ultimately gets a cool grass/fighting typing.
    I was initially really excited when Fennekin's design was released, but I was very disappointed with Delphox's design. I wanted them to keep the more animal-like design of Fennekin rather than the more humanoid form they ultimately went with.

    I liked Froakie since at initial look, it looked cooler than the other Kalos starters, I liked it that it fully evolves into a ninja frog Greninja and that Greninja is in Ubers.

    Fennekin and Froakie.

    Fennekin because it (along with Braixen) is pretty cute.
    Froakie because it evolves into a ninja frog.

    Truthfully, it's a tie between Fennekin and Froakie for me. I didn't like Froakie much at first, but recently I've grown to like it a lot and I've always liked Fennekin as well, so it's hard to pick just one favorite. :x

    Definitely Froakie since Water is my favourite type and I liked the ninja-like look of its final evolution, getting Protean as a hidden ability is basically icing on the cake. Fennekin comes a close second for the innovative fox mage theme as well as breaking the trend of Fire/Fighting final starter evolutions that started from Gen 3.

    Fennekin is my favorite kalos starter. Delphox's design definitely grew on me. I don't like Greninja's design and thus it would be my least favorite

    Froakie, obviously. It's a really well-designed line, very unique designs between the 3 stages.

    I never cared for Chespin line but Chesnaught's really useful in UU matches and Delphox is probably one of my most disliked Pokémon of all time so yeah, Froakie.

    Froakie. It's got the best designed evolutions out of the 3 Kalos starters. Plus it evolves into a ninja frog.

    I liked Fennekin because I've always loved foxes, but what really drew me in was the secondary Psychic-typing of its final evo. Fans had been asking for a Fighting/Dark/Psychic starter line for years, and we finally got one with XY. I also like how they went with the mage/warrior/rogue theme from typical fantasy RPGs, and mages are always the most OP'd class to play (and thus are always the first to be nerfed into pulp), so picking the mage starter was a no-brainer for me. Even though it turned out that the Rogue-class starter would become the one to enter Ubers tier, I still had fun playing as Delphox in X version.

    I like them all but for me, it's definitely Fennekin. I started with Fennekin in my X game and I was surprised at how good Delphox was.

    Chespin is defintiely the runner up and majority of the reason of is because of Chespin in the anime. I can't count the number of times he's had me cracking up while I was watching, he's just so funny. I honestly couldn't care less about his evolution line, I just love him in the anime.

    And finally, Froakie. I feel bad saying he's my least favorite, I prefer to some other starters. I usd Greninja in Y and it was so good. I love it. I just didn't like as much as Fennekin and Chespin. But overall, he's not a bad starter at all.

    Fennekin. Soon as I saw it I wanted it as my starter. I love it X3 Its a cute little fox and its evolutions are amazing. I love their battle cries.
    Also it was pretty much my second fire starter since I seem to go with Grass most of the time. Chespin just wasn't me <_> Fennekin's second typing on its final evo also made it more awesome, seeing as it was the first time going into another set of strengths and weaknesses within the starters.

    I think we all know who's going to win this poll......

    On topic, Fennekin hand down. I think the idea of a fox magician is really unique and I really had fun using them. They're all so appealing in their own way; they've become some of my favourite Pokémon to date. Fennekin is cute, Braixen is graceful and Delphox is majestic (I won't lie though, I really think the hatred towards Delphox is unjustified. It does have a fanbase, but it's not as large as it's previous entries, so maybe the haters are just really loud....). The fact they broke the Fire/Fighting trend is plus as well; I was starting to get tired of that.

    Chespin is the runner up for me. It was initially my least favourite, but they grew on me over time. Chespin has the cute factor, Chesnaught has the look of an ally you can defend on and Quilladin's derpiness is surprisingly appealing.

    Froakie is my least favourite. I like this line, but I like the others a lot more. Frogadier is actually my favourite of this line, it looks sleek. I like Greninja, but I'm not obsessed with it like everyone else is. That tongue scarf really rubs me the wrong way. And Froakie is cute I guess.

    Froakie for me. Explained why in the favorite Kalos Pokemon thread so I'll just put it shortly: awesome designs (especially Frogadier and Greninja, but Froakie as well as it has really grown on me compared to when I first saw it), it is useful at all levels in the game, favorite frog Pokemon and favorite Water starter. One thing I forgot to mention there though was its Hidden Ability which I think is really cool, unique and useful. As if the Froakie line wasn't cool enough, that truely makes them extra special.

    My favourite Kalos starter is Fennekin. When I saw the three starters for the first time, I immediately liked Fennekin's design the most and knew that I would use one on one of the games. I ended up raising one as part of my Y team and loved it. I think Delphox's Fire/Psychic typing is pretty cool.

    Froakie is my second favourite Kalos starter, but Greninja is probably my favourite final evolution of the starters. Its Protean Ability has been very useful to me in places like the Battle Maison.

    Easily Froakie because of how awesome Greninja is and how cool Frogadier looks as well. I also really like Froakie itself (helps that Greninja is getting promotion and is my main in SSB 3DS/Wii U). At the initial reveal of the starters, I actually liked Chespin the most, followed by Fennekin and then Froakie. When the middle forms were revealed, it was Frogadier, Braixen & Quilladin for me. When the final forms were revealed, I wasn't a fan of any of them, but have grown to really love Greninja's design! It's also really great to use in-game!

    I was very pleased with all three of the basic stages when they were revealed and I still am. Froakie had a slight edge from the start and I ended up using it in my first Y playthrough. I am kind of indifferent to Greninja(and Frogadier) though. I think Greninja is alright but the very angular face doesn't sit that well with me, but unlike some other people I liked the transition from bubbles to tongue.
    I picked Froakie in the poll since, as I just said, it's the basic stage I like the most and the rest of the line is completely fine too. However Chesnaught has grown a lot on me lately and the line might become my favorite of the bunch soon, although I still can't wrap my head around Quilladin.
    I don't like either of Fennekin's evolutions much to be honest.

    My favorite starter is not the same as my favorite fully evolved started. I like Fennekin the most of the initial stage, but I really like Chesnaught a lot more than Delphox. But I think this is one gen where I don't dislike any of the starters. The only other gen where I like them this equally is gen 4.

    I almost always go for the water starter and this was no exception. I used Froakie in my main game, and I liked each and every stage of its evolution with Greninja being my favorite of the line. Its design is so cool and it works well in battles. Chespin and Fennekin are super cute, so they have that working for them, but I didn't like their final evolutions as much as their base forms. Delphox's secondary typing was not very useful for me, as I typically like to use other psychic (Meowstic, Alakazam, etc.) Pokemon on my team. As for Chesnaught, it's 4x weak against flying.

    I voted for Fennekin!


    Not only is it my favourite Pokemon, but ... well yeah!

    It's adorable, I dig the Fire/Psychic typing on it's final evo and design wise I just think it's lovely.

    Froakie. I like it's evolution line.
    I think Braixen is really neat, but not so fond of delphox.
