    Default Is Froakie the killer of the water type curse?

    I'm curious about this.. Froakie is my favorite X and Y starter but I don't think it as a cute as the other two starters that's why I'm thinking that it might end the water type curse if Ash gets it what do you guys think?

    Ash could still evolve Oshawott near the end of this series...so you can't really rule that out yet.

    We don't even know if Ash will get Froakie at this point, it's entirely possible they may go back to him not catching all three starters again and using a non-starter Water type.

    In any case, I think you underestimate Frokie's marketability. It looks like the kind of Pokemon which could be made to appeal to children in a different way, like Croagunk and Scraggy. Though whether I'd want him to evolve or not depends on how cool his evolutions turn out to be.

    I know but I doubt it. We know that Oshawott isn't evolving between now and the Genesect movie.

    If 4chan's rumour is correct from his 'sources' that the Froakie is owned by the new Dent/Brock then I doubt that he'll evolve.

    If it gets captured by Ash probably. I doubt you could find a way to make that thing even resemble power.

    No, because there is no "water type curse". We already seen Satoshi's evolved water-type pokemon, and an evolved water-type starter. It's just a coincidence that none of Satoshi's evolved starters are water type.

    That's an odd statement considering that Brock's Mudkip is the only Water-type starter that evolved.

    If he does get one, I seriously doubt it. It's also hard to say if it's the underdog of the three, since I know people that either think it's strange, or they love it for some odd reason, possibly because it's like Osha was before we knew it's evos. On that, Osha turned out to be a Piplup-alike despite this sentiment. True, this may be because it has a similar design to Piplup anyway. Just keep in mind that initial feelings on the starters have no bearing on how the anime will treat them. I only know that Ash has never failed to get the Grass starter, who seems posed to take the cute pokemon position if Fennekin doesn't take it first. Froakie doesn't seem like it would follow any of the anime starter tropes at all, so I will agree with you on that at least.

    Id would really like it to be, If Ash catches it. Its my Favourite of the new starters. Not that I believe there's a "Curse" or anything. Honestly, Froakie seems to be the least cutest and marketable of the 3 (bet ya Fennekin never evolves lol) , so It could evolve. But I've learnt that the best way to approach this show is to not get your hopes up about anything lol so who knows really

    Yes, Chespin will take the role as the next Pipwott.

    Im still of the belief that if theres a new starter trainer that joins Ash that they will get Chespin (May had fire , Dawn had water, theres only grass left). Fennekin is cute but doesnt seem like a firetype that suits Ash. All his others have been strong rather then cute. But then again its final evo hasnt been released yet. That leaves Froakie. Im hoping Froakie takes the Treeko path and starts as this little persistent character then becomes a powerhouse.

    If there is a curse, it might go with if Fennekin evolve into a part psychic type, will Ash evolve it, because Ash does not have a psychic type, even that Ash got 2 dark types in gen 5.

    Like a few of you said already. I really need to see the evolutions first before I can make a judgement. However, we've seen plenty of times where a starter has an awesome evolution or evolution(s) only to be the mascot of cuteness under Ash's ownership...

    Oh and that doesn't apply to starters only remember Badass Buizel and Cocky Corphish?
