    Issue is, when it hits Pansear, it looks like splashes of water... unless they randomly spliced things together, but that'd be a bit odd. As such, it's either odd graphics that they're still working on, or a cold version of Scald.

    Of which, I wonder what the name could be.

    Well, Porcupines are in the rodent order. :P

    I don't buy this theory, but it wasn't necessarily proven false.
    Fennekin can work as the dog as Cyndaquil works as the rat, even though neither of them are really based on those animals.

    Let's see:

    Charmander - Dragon, but it is actually a salamander/lizard.
    Cyndaquil - Rat, but it is actually an echidna.
    Torchic - Rooster.
    Chimchar - Monkey.
    Tepig - Pig/Boar.
    Fennekin - Dog, but it is actually a fennec fox.

    We'll see in three or four years in they are really using the Chinese Zodiac as basis for the Fire starters. We still have the rabbit, snake, ox, tiger, horse and goat.
    Man... A Fire-type Goat is definitely something I would like to see.
    True...
    Nonononono! If they were doing a Chinese Zodiac than they would have been much clearer with designs. It's too farfetch'ed. Get real people and don't always nickpick theories, it's also Chinese and Pokemon is Japanese, it would have been much more plausible if it was Japanese (not saying that they don't use stuff of other cultures, mind you). It's almost like saying that Chespin will become a reptile in time, or something.

    (Regarding Chespin: Oh wait, mammals have an ancestor in the reptiles! I see the link now! See? The grass-starters are still more or less based on reptiles! *sarcasm off*)
    How would it being Japanese make it more plausible? You yourself said they already use different cultures so why would it being Chinese make it less so?

    And assuming you're talking about the Dimetrodon, it isn't even closely related to reptiles.
    Synapsid - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia This stuff. But, yeah, they aren't really reptiles:/

    I still think the Chinese Zodiac-theory isn't plausible and I think it's already busted *looks at Cyndaquil and Fennekin*.
    Foxes are in the same Family as dogs Canidae, also male foxes are known as "dogs". You would know that if you studied biology.
    I know lad, but a fennec-fox still doesn't LOOK like a dog of the Chinese zodiac. This theory is still farfetch'ed in my opinion. Male foxes called 'dogs'? Yeah, maybe in your language/country, but we just call them foxes in the Netherlands.

    Your last sentence disturbs me, ever looked at my age? You know, I am always very interested in biology and stuff, I also want to do something with it in the future, but you have to know that I am not the internet-encyclypedia and that I don't know everything (that foxes are related to dogs? I do know that though). I guess you were a little irritated or something.

    I don't have any ideas for shinies of Froakie and Chespin, but I'd love to see Fennekin get the blue-flame treatment too. I think it's going to look good, since blue complements orange.

    For Fennekin, the area's that are yellow, I would like to see teal, and for the area's that are red, I would like to see purple.
    For Chespin, the area's that are brown I would like to see dark green, and for the area's that are green, I would like to see a very light green.
    For Froakie, maybe just a gold or something. Lol.

    I'm voting Fennekin, but if he evolves into ANOTHER Fire/Fighting, I'll change loyalties to Froakie in a heartbeat.

    Froakie.

    Some of the fan art so far for its possible evolved forms has been unbelievably good. If Game Freak do half as good a job as some of the fans out there I'll be happy.

    I know this will seem so arsey and obnoxious but the overwhelming support for Fennekin is only cementing the fact that I won't pick it.

    This is exactly how I feel sometimes. I like Fennekin too, but it just seems so terribly popular. Ultimately, it's what the final evolutions end up being that will cement my first starter choice, but the popularity is really pushing it for me too. I probably may go with Froakie as well.

    Ah, feels good to be outside the mainstream, don'it

    Well it usually because of this desire to deviate from the norm as well as the people who make whatever they like immensely popular that makes someone want to chose the other option.

    Personally, I'll go with Chespin.

    I chose Froakie since im biased on water types although Fennikin looks really cute, but my opinion might change when the evolutions gets released. like that time when i really find tepig cute and almost chose it as my starter but i got spoiled on it's evolution then totally hated it.

    The more I stare at the artwork for the starters, the more Chespin is growing on me. I pretty much always take the Grass-type starter, but Chespin just seems like a wee legend! I'm desperately hoping he's going to be a physical attacker.

    I have a feeling Fennekin will be a pure fire type(same as Vulpix/Ninetales are)

    Late to the party, but for the 4th generation in a row, the grass starter gets my vote. Love it.

    I will give props to the fire starter though, for the 1st time since Cyndaquil, I am impressed.

    As for the water one..meh.

    Personally, Fennekin doesn't seem like it's going to evolve into a Fire/Fighting starter. It's just so kawaii. The only way I can visualize a Fire/Fighting Fennekin evo is if they make it look like Renamon.

    Though the keyword here is seem. And that Renamon thing (AKA make it stand on two legs, AKA what they did with Tepig) is still possible.
