We haven't had a serious discussion about Fennekin in a while.

With X/Y coming out in October, I feel it's important to do our speculating now, while we still can.

The thing about Fennekin that captures your attention at first glace is its design. That look it's giving us goes very well with its body, and its colors blend together well. The tuffs of hair in its ears look like fire, and have a nice darker contrast to the light orange coloring of its body.

The thing that worries me most is how the evolutions can throw Fennekin in a completely different direction. I'll be disappointed if they aren't Fire/Fighting; Fennekin being the first firestarter I actually like, it would be my first time using a Fire/Fighting type, which I've always thought to be a great type wasted on ugly pokemon. Also, I'm worried about the direction Gamefrak will take the design. Oshawott looked absolutely nothing like Samurott, so who's to say Fennekin won't follow the path that the last best starter pokemon took?

I'm also afraid of what they might do to its evolutions. It's by far my favorite of the gen 6 starters, and I don't want it to end up being terrible.

Why do I have to move with the crowd of kids that hardly notice I'm around? I work myself to death just to fit in.

I'm choosing Fennekin when the game is released. I hope its evolutions stay as a fire type.

So yeah, Fennekin is the best Pokémon and is adorable, but unlike some people I also like the other Gen VI starters.

I'll be satisfied with any dual type for its evolutions (including pure) except Fighting and Normal.
