Pokémon XY Starter Discussion

Postby Ryu Shoji » 13 Jan 2013, 20:07

So, with the announcement of Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, we were also shown the new starter Pokémon: Chespin, Fennekin and Froakie. Which one is your favourite and why?

Personally, I'm a Froakie fan! I like Chespin at first, but Froakie really started to grow on me. Its Japanese name involves bubbles, so the white bits around it are probably bubbles! Bubble bath frog!

I like all three starters, but somehow I decided to not start with Froakie.
They confirmed yesterday that they all pure type pokemon. I really hope Fennekin won't be fightning at the end.

I have almost always been into the Fire types, the one exception being Chikorita in Gen2 and HG/SS, and so far Fennekin appeals most to me. I agree it would be nice to have something else than a fire/fighting type, however it's not the end of the word for me, although if it does happen, it better have some rather unique moves to make it different.

I voted for Fennekin, too. To be honest, I like none of them THAT much, but if I had to choose, I would pick the firefox. In the video, Fennekin used some move that seems to be a Psychic type, having a Fire/Psychic type besides Victini would be funny, too. :P

For some reason, I'm finding myself drawn to Chespin, although they all look pretty cool. Anyone else think that there could be some relation between Chespin and Bianca? Look at that helmet/hair/hat...

Not really a fan of Fennikin and Froakie is just a bit above average. So I'm going for Chespin. But we still have not seen the evolved forms, typing or movesets. So maybe my opinion will change.

ps. Am I the only one who wants to see Fennikin turn into Fire/Fighting?

It is not the end of the world for me if it is, however, I think it would be good to have a little change there as we've have fire/fighting since Blaziken in Gen3.

I get your point. But a fire only is boring, I don't believe Fennikin will become Fire/Psychic like so many others think. Since That typing would seem weird in my eyes.

Image says hi! :D I think this typing is interesting, only one in 649 Pokémon has it, and as we go over 700 with the next generation, it wouldn't be that bad to have another Poké with this typing.

I think a fire/psychic evolution would be nice. Ninetales is a fire fox too, and it knows a lot of psychic moves, so it only seems natural to me.
Nintendo actually have made a lot of fire foxes. I wonder if there is any Japanese myth about psychic foxes... It wouldn't suprise me.
Urr, my English could definitely be better than it is...
