I usually favor the grass type starter, and this case isn't an exception. I'm actually pretty tied between Chespin and Fennekin, but I'll be using Chespin, so that's how I voted. Me and my two closest friends have pretty much worked out who's getting which starter, so that won't be a problem.

I've always had a strong preference for the water's first stage in the past, but now... I'm so torn, I like all three of them equally. Froakie for its water type, Fennekin for its design, Chespin for its potential (as a warrior).
I'm going to wait until I see their evos.
