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.
    It's been confirmed that ALL 3 Starters will be pure Grass, Fire & Water Types. No one knows about their 2nd or 3rd forms yet however.
    N is finished yet.

    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.

    That was how I reacted when seeing these starters aswell, and I agree that they are all good designs. Not like later gens where I have usually only liked one or none. My only problem is with Fennekin who looks too much like the adorable Vulpix.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    According to two theories:
    *Grass<Fire<Water
    *Fighting<Psychic<Dark

    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?

    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.
    That would be a good idea to introduce types, but what kind of types do you think the Starters could get?

    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.
