Are the number of people picking Fennekin going to go way down? We all know it will be available early... It's a bird. Having two fire Pokemon on a team is gimping yourself. I honestly think Talonflame looks like a BA, I'm now leaning more toward Chespin tbh. --- http://imgur.com/FHclCEA /lick
Unless you play Nuzlocke, there isn't really any such thing as a "hard Pokemon game." Bar Battle Tower (Hax) and Stadium/Col (AI HAX again!) --- Only insecure and ignorant people try to debase someone online based on their username.
IMHO, both Fennekin and Froakie have competition right now. Chespin not so much.
Froakie has to compete with the new Water/Poison and Crustacean.
Fennekin has to compete with Talonflame and Shishiko. (NOTE: Talonflame isn't going to immediately compete with Fennekin, because it starts as Normal/Flying, but eventually it will).
IIRC, Chespin is the only Grass-type pokemon spoiled so far --- Skyrim is the girl who keeps breaking my heart, yet is so hot I still keep coming back on the chance I may get to sleep with her again. - Spurner
