And these guys tend to have good stats for a beginning Pokemon, so a dual-type would make them all the more useful and all the more future-proof.
    Bulbasaur was the only unevolved dual-type starter we had get since Gen I, and since then, we had not getting any dual-typed unevolved starter for 17 years. If one of them will be dual-typed (I hope Game Freak will bring back dual-typed unevolved starters, but this is not possible), I guess Fennekin (Fire/Psychic could be possible as he might be based on between Kitsune (Demon Fox) and real-life fennec fox). Chespin was also supposed to be Grass/Fighting-type in my first glance because of human-like designs, but he's might be pure Grass-type until his next evolutions. However, Froakie will not be dual-typed until his next evolutions.

    Good luck getting a female one, considering the gender ratios of starters. :P

    I still honestly find myself hoping that Froakie evolves to have an awesome mustache.

    I really don't care if its male or female just Fennekin looks more like a girl pokemon and its better to call it a he or she than an "it"

    Why is it better? Honest question, I don't understand why people call Pokémon as "he" or "she".

    I read that as "evolving into an awesome mustache".

    Considering how animals are called "it" in the English language (Though I believe using "he" and "she" has become more accepted?) I believe the correct pronoun for a Pokemon would be "it". When I talk about Pokemon in general I refer to them as "it".

    I think using "he" and "she" is more okay when it comes to talking about an individual Pokemon.

    These are my hopes for the starter's final evos:

    Chespin: No idea what it should look like, but I'm sort of hoping for a Grass/Dark Pokemon. Either way, this guy's probably gonna be my first choice.

    Fennekin: I'm hoping for a quadruped mono-Fire type. I know it's not a popular opinion, but it really is what I want to see from this one. I'll probably be picking one of these up at some point regardless.

    Froakie: Water/Fighting frog/sage/monk, please. I'll accept nothing less. :P

    What I'm expecting for the Starter's final evos:

    Chespin: Pure Grass. Doesn't bother me so much, I can see it, but 4 mono-Grass starters in total is a bit annoying.

    Fennekin: Fire/Fighting bipedal Pokemon. :P That, or Fire/Psychic.

    Froakie: Pure Water or Water/Fighting. Here's hoping they don't redo the Gen V type combos.

    this is probably the first game in the series where i want the grass starter over the others. i used to always choose fire but then the fire/fighting thing happened and it got so old so i turned to water. chespin is a cutie though and i'm hoping for grass/fighting or grass/dark. if fennekin isn't fire/fighting i'll get them in my second playthrough.

    Clearly it'd end up becoming an awesome mustache with a frog attached to it~

    But for some reason, I'm now thinking of Froakie as some Teddy Roosevelt analog...

    Exactly. I often call my babies as "he" or "she", but when I refer to the whole species of a specific Pokémon I always use "it".

    Actually there are 3 mono grass starters. Meganium, Sceptile, and Serperior.

    Yes. 3 plus 1 = 4 if Chespin is pure grass that makes 4 of them

    It's official: once everyone gets a Froakie, its name must be some reference to Teddy Roosevelt. xD

    I would really adore it if Fennekin was fire/psychic. It'd be nice to have a Pokemon of that typing that we could actually use in anything besides in-game teams. Plus, I was thinking: with the grass/dark, fire/psychic, water/fighting scenario, we'd have a generation of starters that are pretty much exactly equal in power when it comes to supereffective moves against each other.

    Froakie will be the perfect addition to my Amphibian team ^_^ i hope he evolves into a dual type non-goofy looking pokemon.

    i wont give fennehipster a second glance.

    Chespin... i'm sorry but Froakie won my heart. I'll ask a friend to breed you for me if your final evo looks neat or is /steel :P
