Chespin broke the tradition of Grass-type starters being based off reptiles.

Although to be fair, they were running out of extant reptiles to base Pokémon off anyways. The only extant reptiles Gamefreak hasn't used yet are crocodilians and tuataras, and tuataras look too much like lizards anyways (although a Grass/Psychic tuatara that used its third eye would be pretty cool).

It appears to be based off some type of dinosaur.

Never mind, according to Bulbapedia, it's based off one of those extinct mammal-reptile thingies.

I welcome the change. Maybe Froakie will evolve into the first Water-type starter with a good base Speed stat... Maybe not.

They're all either dinosaurs or reptiles

Looking at Chespin's feet/tail I'm not so sure it won't actually be one.
