    I think the majority of Pokémon fans like Fennekin more tbh. xD

    But I think each starter has a really good fanbase. I'm sorta in all of them, but I think Froakie is still the best. :3

I'd say Fennekin is most favourited particularly by the males, despite all the Chespin avvys everywhere. xD I like Fennekin myself but Chespin is growing more on me.

nah but Chespin's just cooler tbh

Also, it looks like Fenniken is firing a Flamethrower from an invisible force field rather than its mouth. confirmed for Psychic type.

    Seems to me that everyone will go with Fennekin because it's Fire and Fire starters seem to be popular and then everyone will go with Chespin because it seems to be the underdog. Then only the dedicated Water type starters will go with Froakie and it will be underused. Nevertheless, Fennekin will get a lot of users simply because some of the less mature players seem to thing Fire is the best type ever. x3

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.
Any thread that you've seen saying this is just what people hope. I can pretty much guarentee you that this is not something Gamefreak will do.

Every poll I've seen across several forums ends up with Fenniken getting more than 40% of the vote. Fire starters are always the most popular.

How did you come by this knowledge? Cause everyone I talk too is tired of the Fire/Fighting combo. Myself included. If I did a poll of my friends and acquaintances Im sure that more than half of them would chose the first 3 Fire starters and then start picking the Grass or Water starters. Infernape and Emboar are really useless.

Anyway Im leaning toward Chespin or Froakie. Most likely Froakie because it looks the best of them all.

/shrug it's from polls online. Hardly scientific but on the whole Fire is always the most popular starter in every poll I've seen for every generation.

Also your comment that infernape is rather confusing. If you don't choose infernape but want a fire type on your team your only choice is to catch ponyta, which is terrible. Infernape is quite good, pretty common in OU, calling it useless really leaves me totally baffled.

Im not saying that it isn't good. I like Infernape. I just dont find much use for it. Thats why I find it useless.

I honestly don't know why ninetales wasn't typed or retyped to fire/psychic. Makes no sense given her movepool, appearance, the Japanese more of foxes and in canon more of ni stakes. Hopefully she gets retyped which is unlikely at this point or gets an evolution to correct this.

late edit: Did my "L" button break?

You gotta admit Chespin does look kinda strange. Well they all look strange.

I really never thought Id see the day that one of the starters would be a frog. I knew it would happen one day but not until like Gen XX.

How many of the dual typed starters have their initial form with both types? Lets be serious here, we only know about their base forms currently.

I'm not talking about fennekin. I'm talking about the lack of typing for the oh so obvious Ninetales. The pokedex constantly references her as to having mystical powers, in japanese folklore foxes (such as what Fennekin is) are sinister pranksters with mystical properties. Ninetales learns a buttload of psychic and dark moves and even a ghost move here and there. Magnemite and Magneton got an additional typing in Gen 2 but Ninetales stayed fire and fire she remains which doesn't make a lot of sense.

Which is why I hope for an evolution, she really could use a buff in the special attack department.
