At the moment, Fennekin. But that might change once I say the full evolutions. Especially if Fennekin (unlikely) turns out to become Fire/Fighting (cue rampaging fans). If Fennekin turns out a disappointment then Chespin. Froakie has potential but he looks a little too goofy for my taste at the moment.
I didn't insult anyone, I stated my opinion. You, on the other hand....
*EDIT* Also, what the hell else would people currently be picking their starter for if it's not because of looks? The types? Probably not. The movesets? How would they? How easy their choice would make the game? How would they know?
It's based on looks. That's why it's a bit stupid IN MY OPINION that people are picking before they see what they'll be stuck with for the entire game after level 36 or so.
I'm with you on this, and I think it's kind of amusing how some people are getting riled up over what you said.
Well said; well handled.
For what its worth (nothing), I agree.
On topic, I'm leaning towards froakie since I usually go water but something about chespin is endearing.

Froakie. Mainly to continue a pattern I've recently noticed...
1st Gen: First run used Charmander 2nd Gen: First run used Chikorita 3rd Gen: First run used Mudkip 4th Gen: First run used Chimchar 5th Gen: First run used Snivy 6th Gen: If I follow the above, the Water Starter should be my pick. So Froakie.

Fennekin and Torchic. Fletchling will probably be my bird on the first playthrough. Wow, that is more fire than I am used to playing with (usually it is just the starter).
My first run has always been with the fire type. Maybe, if one of the others ends up being faster (without losing a lot in regard to offensive power) in their final form, I will bail early and use it (and Torchic).
