Right now it's gotta be Froakie, close second would be Fennekin.
Gotta wait for their evolutions before I can really be sure.

Also they botched Froakie's name, should have made it Froakin and keep it consistent :/


Yea, because Froakin doesn't sound too closely to Fockin or could be read as Frokin and be said in a hurry and parents would hear it and think "hey my kid just swore." Which quickly will escalate out of control in the media and suddenly Pokemon is teaching kids to swear or some bull crap.

Easy solution..its Froakie instead of Froakin. Would've liked Frogkin just fine though

Am I the only who thinks that Chespin looks like a rejected "Happy Tree Friends" character?

Well in French I understand the puns, but in English, it sounds weird.. "Froakie" (= frog + ?), "Fennekin" (= fennec + ?), and "Chespin" (= chesnut + ?)

Weird...


Didn't read the whole thread so probably someone said this already, but a Fennec is a type of fox with big ears that lives in the desert

Also I think Fennecs are the cutest things ever but I also love frogs. So probably will buy both x and y and move froakie over to join fenneckin.

Chespin looks too much like a patrat for my taste.

No it doesn't. Chespin looks somewhat normal, Patrat has an eye infection.O_o

Chespin/Hariromon for me. It's the best looking grass starter since Bulbasaur, imo.

Froakie is "frog" and "croak."
After the noise that frogs make.

And I don't know what the others are...

Fennekin!

I always choose the grass-type starter first out of tradition, so Chespin. He's my favorite anyway though so it kind of works. His personality that I extrapolate from the image reminds me of Treeko who I really enjoyed.
