How is Chespin a hedgehog?


By being a hedgehog? I mean, you can even take a "hedge" pun from him. >_>

Anyway, some of his foreign-language names are puns on the corresponding words for "hedgehog".

Just because GameFreak is calling Chespin a hedgehog does not make him a hedgehog. Shaymin is a hedgehog, Chespin is not.

There was a topic a couple days ago about starter typing, and this debate came up. Someone said something along the lines of "Maybe Chespin is a baby hedgehog, they don't really have quills. You're probably thinking of adult hedgehogs." This pissed me off because

A) hedgehogs are my third favorite animals after African penguins and Capuchin monkeys, and

B) http://cdn2.blogs.babble.com/pets/files/newborn-animals/spineless-hedgehog_1448919i.jpg. Clearly a newborn and it has visible quills.

I rest my case that Chespin, no matter what GameFreak names him, is not a hedgehog. He may evolve into a badass hedgehog, which I would be fine with, be he is not one.

I can see the hedgehogness in him - and might I add that at no point do we ever see Chespin from the back in that trailer? Maybe he has grass (which would look like quills!) all up and down his back.

Right, just like Galvantula isn't a spider, because spiders have eight legs, so if it doesn't have eight legs, then it can't be a spider.
