X/Y Starter evolutions

Rate this Entry
Last time, I have written down a rant 'bout how people don't want Fennekin to Fire/Fighting. Now this time, I’m going to guess the types of the X/Y starter evolutions.


Acoording to a trailer, Chespin can apparently learn Rollout. Visually, Chespin seems like it can evolve into a Grass/Fighting type, but since the lil' hedgehog seems to learn Rollout, it could probably be a Grass/Rock type. But that is because Rollout is a Rock-type, so I could be wrong. I suppose it could evolve into a Grass/Ground type too. I googled Chespin's evolution's type and fans would like for it to evolve into a Grass/Dark type. I suppose that could work, but Chespin seems rather unthreatening to evolve into a Grass/Dark type.


You'll probably know my opinion on this one, but I'm going to quote it anyways.

I am starting to get ticked with the whole 'Fennekin's evo should not be Fire/Fighting' thing. I mean, if it were, I would be cracking out laughing, but even so... Just because we got 3 Fire/Fighting starters in a row doesn't mean were getting yet another one.

I'm hoping for Fennekin's final evolution to be pure Fire. I mean, what was the last one we had? Typhlosion, and he has been around for over 10 years too. Fans want for it to be Fire/Psychic, but I cannot see it evolving into a Fire/Psychic.
I'll also mention that it seems to learn Howl according to the same trailer as the one I mentioned earlier.


Don't have that much of an opinion for Froakie, to be honest. I suppose it can evolve into a pure Water type, but... I don't got much to say about it. I'll mention though that Froakie can learn Quick Attack according to the same trailer I mentioned twice, but it doesn't look fast to me. I was also thinking of Water/Ice, but that is only due to the fact that prior to Gen VI, I made a Fake Pokemon which was Water/Ice. Fans want it to be Water/Fighting, and while I can picture that, I think it should stay as a pure Water type.

Well, that is all I got to say. Tell me what you want~

    I imagine it learns Rollout due to being based on a hedgehog. Otherwise, I don't really see it becoming Grass/Rock, but is possible. In the first trailer, it used a move that many people believe was Night Slash or another Dark move, suggesting possible Grass/Dark. I think either of those would be cool, but I'm leaning more towards Dark~

    Chespin seems rather unthreatening to evolve into a Grass/Dark-type
    Well, starters don't normally look threatening. Even some Dark-types we have don't look particularly threatening. Purrloin, for instance.

    As for Fennekin, I'm one of those guys who isn't hoping for another Fire/Fighting starter for a fourth time. I see either Fire/Ground, since it is based off of the Fennec Fox or Fire/Psychic, since, like Chespin, it also seemed to used a Psychic looking move in the first trailer, but it could have been anything. As for the actual Pokemon itself, I hope it isn't Kyuubi-like like Ninetales or Vulpix, but I don't anticipate that it is, anyway.

    Now for Froakie, I'm not too sure. Based on the other two, Water/Fighting would make a for the Psy-Dark-Fight triangle to counter the Fire-Grass-Water one which I personally think would be very cool. And I also sort of want it to evolve into a cool toad like the ones in Naruto, so why not Fighting?

    All that said, I wouldn't be bothered if none of them ended up dual-typed. Or at least not Fennekin. But Water and Grass starters seem to get screwed out of secondary types, so I'm hoping for some for them.

    Thank god, someone else that doesn't think Fennekin should be Fire/Psychic. I've said it from the start that want/hope it ends up being pure Fire. Fingers crossed.

    I also like the idea of Chespin being Grass/Rock, but I'm not too sure about that one.

    Froakie, I dunno. I guess Water/Fighting's as good a guess as any.

    I don't want another pure starter or fire/fighting starter evo.

    I'm willing to bet the starters will be water/fighting, grass/dark and fire/psychic given the rumors. And I hope they are. I think two type triangles in one would be beautiful.

    More evidence for chespin being rock-grass is that info about says the shell what thing on its head is hard and protects it

    I also read that Froakie could evolve into a water-flying is that it could be based on some mythological frog creature that is associated with wind. It also said the thing on its back resembles a cloud, and it seems to be listening to the wind in its artwork.

    I could see Chespin becoming rock due it it's learing of Rollout and having a hard shell. In the first trailer it looked like it was using a move with resemblance to both Night Slash and Aerial Ace so I'm not really sure, but I'm leaning closer it becoming dark over flying.

    I honestly don't care what Fennekin becomes as long as it's not fire/fighting. I'm not too keen on the idea of it remaining pure fire, but I wouldn't really be upset it that's what it ended up becoming.

    Froakie; I really don't know. There isn't much to hint at a possible second type. I'm thinking it'll remain pure water, but like I said, there's nothing to really support anything.

    As for what I hope they'll become; I'm in that group of people who wants the grass/dark, fire/psychic, and water/fighting trio.

    Huh, I never thought of the Grass/Dark, Fire/Psychic, Water/Fighting thing. Even so, I think that is pretty decent~

    And I never thought about Chespin having a hard shell either. Now that I'm reading this, I'm thinking that Chespin will evolve into a Grass/Rock type. I'll also mention that Froakie can apparently jump high, so Water/Flying could work too.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Fennekin evo is a pure Fire-type. Chespin may be pure Grass or something like Grass/Ground. Froakie...Water/Ice?
