    Fennekin...I can see why it's so popular, but I'm not big friend of these cute foxes/canines (excluding Poochyena). Froakie is just another frog, but not bad either.

    Gonna buy 3DS, pick Pokémon X when it comes out and start with Chespin!
    I've said this before, but the first thing that popped into my head when I saw them was fakemon. Their art just looks like fakemon art. Maybe I'll like their evolutions better. I will say that both legendaries are awesome, especially the Y bird.
    Same, when Pokémon Direct was about to go into the Trailer, I was like "OMG, HERE WE GO" ........ and then for a second after being so shocked seeing all the 3Dness, I then saw the new Starters, I thought they were playing a joke... until I saw the Battle scenes... I thought all 3 were fakemon. Even though they do look like fakemon, it's nice to see that they maybe took ideas from fans, possibly?

    Absolutely love all 3 of them though! Can't wait for the evolutions to be revealed, and I literally cannot choose between all 3, so I may buy both X and Y, trade a bit, and have all 3 in my Team just for the fun of it, haha.
    N is finished yet.

    I believe Froakie will be more like Toxicroak (body-wise) than like Seismitoad. People are obsessed with the idea of all frog Pokémon being fat or bulky and there is nothing on Froakie's design suggesting that it will evolve into something with these characteristics. Froakie is basically the Chimchar of this Generation (body-wise). As far as type goes, I can see it being Water/Fighting, Water/Poison or even Water/Dark (if the burglar theory ends up being true).

    Without assuming too much about the second types, I still HOPE that Froakie will be Water/Dark.

    He might not even be based on a thief anyways, but that idea is so cool.

    I've seen quite a bit of fanart of it already, in which it often looks better (or at least less malnourished)
    I hope the evolutions will look better
    Basic anatomy being ignored? In Pokémon? PREPOSTEROUS!

    in all seriousness though, to me, Fennekin just looks sleek, and not malnourished.

    Guys, I can't say how much I love seeing everyone going ga-ga over the starters. They all have HUGE fanbases and I've yet to see one bitchy complaint. Glad to see the fandom having nothing but good things to say :D :D :D

    But, that hasn't happened.
    Chespin is my favourite, by far.
    I can see how you'd mistake the [F] key with the [C] key on your keyboard given how close they are. So we'll try again.

    [F]
    [R]
    [O]
    [A]
    [K]
    [I ]
    [E]

    There we are, much better!

    I only like Froakie's evolution. Fennekin's could be much more elegant and Chespin's remind me too much of Excadrill.

    Water/Dark
    Water/Fighting
    Water/Psychic

    I don't mind any of those. All three could work for a Froakie evolution, whether you want him to be a wise old Sage, a gentlemen boxer, or a dirty French thief like Lupin the Throg.

    Also, posting this for my own sake:

    Generation 1 Fire (Tail - Tail - Tail)
    Generation 2 Fire (Back - Head & Butt - Mane)
    Generation 3 Fire (None - None - Wrists)
    Generation 4 Fire (Butt - Tail - Tail & Head)
    Generation 5 Fire (Nose - Nose - Nose & Beard)

    Generation 6...? Maybe Ears?

    The white on his nose looks like glasses, and he has long-ish white hair!!!

    But, really. I LOVE FROAKIE

    Default Gen VI Shiny Starters - Thoughts?

    So we obviously know what the starters look like - but what do you think their shiny forms would be? Gen V shiny starters threw me for a bit of a loop, with Emboar sporting gorgeous blue flames and Samurott surprisingly only being a few shades darker.
    What do you think the starter shinies will look like? What would you rather *not* see?

    EDIT: Forgot to add my own! I expect Fennekin to have a shiny sprite similar to that of Vulpix: not changing much initially, but turning into a beautiful silver/blue final evo. Of course, my expectation probably won't be met.
    Chespin I can see them making in warmer colors, ending in something big, powerful and daunting.
    And Froakie...you know what, sorry, I don't care too much for Froakie. But if I had to guess I'd say that it will probably be purple. That is the trend.

    They don't look too bad, but I think, comparing those with the future official ones, there'd be much more to improve, mainly on Chespin's.


    Fennekin's actually looks quite cool.

    I thought it looked like an old guy, until I saw the Japanese burglar picture.
    Now all I see is a little burglar frog when I look at Froakie.
