Fennekin: RU. Typical starter with low stats and weakness to our "favorite" attack: Stealth Rock.
Froakie: NU. There are probably enough Rain sweepers and I don't see Froakie evolving into something impressive.
Chespin: NU. Again, it'll most likely fail to stand out from other Grass types.
I might have ranked them better if I knew they were going to get Dream World abilities or not. But looking at the majority of starters, I don't see any of these guys being anything good without DW abilities.

Victini, with V-create, bolt strike, blue flare, and all sorts of other great moves can't make OU. And it's stats are much better than Fennekin's evo will ever be.

Victini lacks the famous 101 speed.

If Fennekin's evo ends up with 102+speed,along with notably higher special than Victini, it can propably do rather well for itself. Probably isn't gonna boot out Infernape as the premier non-Heatran Fire type.

This being said, even if it ends up built like that, I'm guessing UU at best.

Venusaur: OU. Was not NU even without Chlorophyll.
Blastoise: UU. THE Rapid Spinner of the tier.
Charizard: NU, primarily due to Dual SR weakness combined with HP costing gimmicks being his big thing...
-
Typhlosion: RU. A major threat.
Meganium: NU.
Feraligatr: RU. Considering how this thing is beating Chandelure for use in DW OU, Sheer Force is gonna do a lot.
-
Sceptile: RU
Blaziken: Uber. Even without Speed Boost, it would never have been NU.
Swampert: UU
-
Torterra: NU
Infernape: OU
Empoleon: UU.
-
Serperior: NU. Contrary will likely send it to OU.
Emboar: RU.
Samurott: NU.


How do you predict NU for these guys based on earlier starters, when NU Starters are an exception rather than a rule?

I am here to promote the discussion and appreciation of Fennekin.

You want to predict their tiers without knowing even their type, let alone their stats?
