Chespin, but Totodile remains my favorite in general.

Almost always pick the Water or Grass starter, so I'll be choosing Fennekin my first time around

They all look dumb, but Fennekin is the most OK. Fire/Psychic seems like a really dumb combo to me though. I'd rather have Fire/Electric. All of my psychic Pokemon just turn out being an Ice/Psychic/Electric/Grass special sweeper.

Here's my justification to it.

When we got Vulpix and Ninetales in later generations, Vulpix could learn Extrasensory and pass it onto Ninetales, and that would be the only way besides egg breeding. But based on Ninetales's description, it should already have potent Psychic or Ghost like abilities, but it could only learn Extrasensory.

So i like to think that Fennekin has that typing as a possibility as a way to get a redemption for earlier, but that's all just my opinion on it.

I don't mean to offend anyone, but i think they're the two dumbest looking Starter Pokemon to date. The day i use either of them is the day it's either forced on me, or i am unable to use Fennekin due to a game breaking glitch.

Vulpix/Ninetales never should have been Fire in the first place, they should have been Psychic with some Fire moves like will'o wisp and the like, rather than Fire with a few Psychic/Ghost moves. If the Fairy type is true/old pokemon get retyped, making Fairy a second type for them and possibly Zorua/Zoroark would better redeem that. Both are based off of the same thing, renowned for magical ability.

As for starter choice, Fennekin, not even a question. I'll be honest though, I would have expected a Fennec Fox Pokemon to be at least part Ground type. Chespin would be my second pick, but it kind of looks derp. Froakie just looks awful.

Lol and I was planning on naming it (Fennekin) Amaterasu although it's not a wolf (not that it matters).
I really can't wait until this game (and Kingdom Hearts, Disgaea D2, and LR:FF) come out.
It's gonna be a VERY merry Christmas.
