I agree with some people: these are the best starters since Gen 3! When I first saw the trailer for Gen 6 (took me by surprise, BTW: It was on an unrelated forum, and I thought X and Y were just placeholders for hypothetical Pokemon games, not actual games themselves. Er, right, anyway . . .) I was pleasantly surprised by Chespin, and Fennekin was also amazing. And then we got to Froakie. I was slightly disappointed with it, thinking they'd lost their starter-designing momentum. But then I looked at it again a couple of times, and it suddenly grew on me. I think Froakie will be my first starter this generation, though they're all really cool.
I can already picture it evolving in to a pretty bad*** maestro or inventor.
My choice will be Froakie atm, I think he looks awesome as few! But Chespin seems like he may have some cool evolutions.
Froakie is the Best Starter here this time even though he is a rip-off of some other Frogs in the past but look he is cool. Chespin is a complete rip-off of Oshawott even though I like Oshawott but he is a complete look-a-like. Fennekin is a complete copy of a Vulpix and an Eevee. So this why Froakie is cool and is the best to choose.Remember this just my own Opinion so you can argue against me on this.
I really don't know which one I'll pick. I love them all so much. I think I'll start with Fennekin though. Once I reach the aftergame, I'll get the other two from the GTS or here.
EDIT: I have no idea how the post duplicated. I'll delete it.

i will personally pick froakie. he is a sir.
not only that, but he was a ninja in the trailer. did you see how he attacked that simisear? perfect.
plus they can kick the asses of all of the fennekin that will be flitting about.
Another pic of Frokkie's possible evolution-
Still I don't like him !
Chespin: Personally the hardest one for me to think of at all, mostly because I don't know what it is exactly even though it's apparently a Hedgehog. I keep imagining a Grass/Dark Armadillo each time though.
Fennekin: Possibly Biped or staying Quadruped, I can imagine Grass/Psychic for this one because it clearly used Confusion or a move similar to it in the trailer. How exactly it'll look just creeps me out each time.
Froakie: There's only one real design I'll except for this guy; a bulky, Chinese styled Sage Toad somewhat similar to Gamabunta of Naruto, or something at least bulky and similar to him in appearance. Water/Fighting, though I was personally thinking Water/Ice so that it didn't clash with Poliwrath's Water/Fighting.

Okami-looking thing, kick boxing frog, and a hooded assassin (cause what else can you do with a hat?)
You know what would be cool? If we had three new types (thus rounding us up to a nice 20) and the three starters evolved to be dual-typed with one of those new types.
Chespin: Grass/Dark ninja thingy.
Fennekin: Psychic Fox with pink eyes. Fire/Psychic
Froakie: Water/Fighting tank that's very fat.
Too be honest, I think there really is a second type trio for the starters this time.
Hello Everyone! This is my signature. It is useful.
According to two theories:
Chespin:Grass/Fighting hedgehog/mole mix, another Excadrill version
Fennekin:Fire/Psychic Nine-Tailed Demon Fox (since he is based on a fox)
Froakie:Water/Dark poisonous toad
I bet this could be correct.
Does anyone know where this image comes from?
(Kind of funny how the tumblr post I got this from suggested Chespin is Grass/Dark to "even it out" just because it learns Pin Missle)
I'd much prefer Fire/Ghost over Fire/Psychic for Fennekin
I'm pretty sure it's just an unofficial magazine speculating based on things from the trailer. Tons of people have noted the Psychic-type moves Fennekin has used, as well as Froakie's ninja-esque melee attack, and Pin Missile seems like an obvious choice for Chespin.
I'm not gonna lie, I'd be interested in seeing how they'd turn Chespin into a Bug Pokemon. Speaking of which, I don't think we've ever had a Pokemon gain the Bug-type, have we?
That would be a good idea to introduce types, but what kind of types do you think the Starters could get?You know what would be cool? If we had three new types (thus rounding us up to a nice 20) and the three starters evolved to be dual-typed with one of those new types.

I really like the idea of Chespin being Grass/Dark and some sort of assassin, Fennekin being Fire/Psychic, and Froakie being Water/Fighting.
Fire is my favorite starter type and Psychic is my favorite general type, so I would be on cloud 9 if Fennekin were to be Fire/Psychic. That being said, a Grass/Dark assassin would be so badass I would have serious trouble picking between Fennekin and Chespin.
