honestly i dont care what they're type will be, because i know what ever they will become, i think they will still be pretty badass
but these type just crossed my mind chespin would fit grass/rock to me because chestnuts are hard like rocks and it must have tough teeth to break rocks and i guess the pin in its name hints toward it having needles like a porqupine, so strong teeth to break rocks and rock like needles
fennekin could be like fire/ground because the animal its based off of the (fennec fox) lives in the desert and can hear prey undergroud, as well as lives underground but i really hope its a pyschic type tho
froakie........ well thats obvious how it could water/ice type
im not saying they will be this type, but i wouldnt mind if they were if they did become these type, it would add more weakness to each other, cuz ice beats ground and ground beats rock, then rock beats ice
Fennekin with a Ground / Fire typing wouldn't be awful competitively. Flamethrower covers Grass and Bug, which are hit NVE by EQ and Ground would mitigate Fire's SR weakness. Likewise, Fire mitigates Ground's weakness to Ice and Grass.
Yeah, you'll be doubly weak to Water, but you also get a handy Electric resistance and two very good STABs. --- Most beautiful woman in the world: http://i.imgur.com/J7GpU.jpg Kiss the rings. http://media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lyzpf1y3cy1qf6y79.gif

Competively Fire/Ground doesn't matter so much, but looking at the ingame situation, beginner players aren't going to choose Fennekin if they know that the rival's Froakie will easily x4 them.
Why would they use a fire type against a water type? By the time the rival's starter can use a water type move you can have more pokemon. --- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Raiz5MAb98Q Official Salamence of the Pokemon X and Y boards
