  • Big round head
  • Fat body
  • Tail
Isn't that something quite a lot of tiny pokemon have in common?

Eh sure if you put it that way. But as far as starters go to be so similar two generations in a row? I don't "feel" it has occured before. In all honesty when I saw them announced I thought I was looking at a green and brown Oshawott at first.

Doesn't have to be something we all agree on it's merely how I percieved it.

I swear I thought Chespin was an Aggron clone.

Also Fire is not weak against water. If you use surf on a fire pokemon and the fire pokemon is strong enough and you BELIEVE in said fire pokemon and it LOVES you, the surf will actually act as water armor making it impervious to further water damage. FACT.

Not to mention breaking everything down into basic shapes is a key part of animation, so your bound to get a lot of similar shapes.

It is sorta interesting that their basic shapes are so similar, never payed that much attention to it.

Does it bother anyone else that Yveltal is about twice as tall as Xerneas? Because it really sort of bothers me...

Err "long" would be the proper way to say it. Thats about normal for a serpentine body.

Yeah Yveltal is more than likely measured from beak to tail rather than head to foot. Since that tail is really long at standing height it'd be about the same as Xerneas.

I was hoping for actual direct feed screens of battles, but oh well.

I still haven't figured out how I feel about chespin. It really looks way too much like Oshawott. I mean I'm sure it's supposed to be a chipmunk but it just doesn't look as good as the others.
It's a hedgehog.

Lmao, I dunno why but compared squiggle bath's height to the legendaries. xD It gave me a little laugh. :3
I don't really see any close resemblance between Chespin and Oshawott tbh. Like the species they're based off may have something in common, but then again, Chespin seems more rodent based.

Nawh, I think they included it's tails in the measurments.
edit: sigh, only just noticed Kanon's post. My bad.

I swear I'm not that short! ;O Although that is one huge deer wow.

Also just looking at that close up screenshot of Froakie, that looks like an Ice type move. I did not notice that before.

This thread should be renamed: "Lastest X and Y screen give us a great way to argue pointlessly over whether or not oshawott looks like chespin!"

Also, according to another thread here, the evolved form's typings will be Fire/Psychic, Grass/Dark and Water/Fighting. If that's true, then each pokemon could effectively fight off the starter it is weak to with its secondary typing, what with the whole Psychic>Fighting>Dark>Psychic thing.

    You are a midget. But don't worry, you can be a midget with Lady Gaga. :3

    Lol, it looks similar, but not that much. Just the same body shape, lol. xD
