What kind of stat spread would you like to see for each starter?

#1GATTJTPosted 1/21/2013 2:55:17 PM
Chespin

With the whole 'chestnut' thing, I can easily see Chespin having a high Defense, and good Attack as well.

HP: 90
Attack: 102
Defense: 108
Special Attack: 76
Special Defense: 85
Speed: 79

Total: 540

Fennekin, I feel, has a much more 'special attacker' vibe, and good Speed, but low defenses.

HP: 83
Attack: 79
Defense: 75
Special Attack: 107
Special Defense: 85
Speed: 111

Total: 540

Leaving Froakie, who seems like he has the chance to really go in multiple directions. I can see him having bulk, while also being able to hold his own going offense, but mediocre Speed.

HP: 91
Attack: 102
Defense: 85
Special Attack: 102
Special Defense: 85
Speed: 75

Total: 540

What about you guys? What direction do you feel the starters will go?

It would be nice to finally get a Water starter that was actually fast. All of the water starters have had mediocre to terrible speed. I just really can't get a good feel for what Froakie stats will end up like.

I can definitely see Fennekin being fast and having high special atk, but probably being frail.

Chespin looks like it'll probably have really good attack and defense, but lacking in the special areas.

The distribution looks alright, but they're not going to be 540 BST all of a sudden. That would be shameless power creeping.

Not sure why, but I have a feeling the frog will actually be the fastest out of the gate.

Fennekin seems like it'll hit like a truck, but go down easily.

Chespin looks like it'll have great defense and attack, but be a bit slower than the other two.

Just give them all infernape's spread. Make them all eminently usable in-game, so that the only compelling decision is which sprites/movepool you want.

Edit: this is mildly facetious, but I think all the starters should have at least decent speed and one usable attack stat.
