I like Chespin the most, but all that matters is their final evolution.
Excuse me, sir? Can you sign my bus schedule?

Fennekin, not 100% sure why though.
I gave up and did the 3DS transfer anyway...

I'm getting both X and Y. I hate having to pick a starter, plus the empty spots in the pokedex bug me, so I just trade the other two starters over from my other version as soon as trading becomes available in the story so I can have a full play through with all three.
I don't care if you hate every Pokemon Gen but the first one. Just don't get all up in my face about it and let me love all five, soon to be six.

Fennekin- Since it going to be Fire/Psychic, it will not only $X resist Fairy but it will learn Psyshock to take out Chanesy. The Fire Type also help it aganist Steel like Skarmory and Bugs like Scizor. It looks like a fast special Attacker that might be getting Nasty Plot

P.S.-If it end up bad, I have Volcarona to replace it after E4.
What do you guys think about the fairy type?
Snorlax: This is delicious. Iris: O_O Charizard: Doe this mean i am in OU now? Pikachu: No es fake.

It depends on how far in you need to be to breed. If not very then whatever my friends don't choose. But if it's further in the game then Fennekin

I usually go for the fire starter the first time I start a new version. However, Chespin has me extremely interested in him. A grass/dark starter? I liked Shiftry a lot, so I may be bound to like Chespin's final evolution. Froakie looks okay, so maybe I'll just get him on my original file and just raise him like that.

The only exceptions that had me pick a different type starting out was on Black and Ruby. On Black, I started with Snivy. Who doesn't like a grass snake? Serperior is awesome. On Ruby, I started with Mudkip. At first, I wasn't sure who to start with, but I'm glad I went with him. Swampert is awesome and is my favorite water/ground.

shiftry was awesome, and is a lot better with the gen 5 moveset. Chespin for me
If you believe in Jesus Christ and are 100% proud of it, put this in your sig.

At first I was set on Fennekin, but after Talonflame was revealed, I'm not sure anymore. I guess I'll choose spontaneously when the game's here.

Same here. It'll depend on how the final evolutions of the starters look. I'm not strictly opposed to having 2 fire-types on my team, but, as I run a team of 3-4, that does eat up some potential.
