Fennekin would be a good choice if it was going to be a female. I don't see any other pokemon that could be female other than the usual and boring bird pokemon. But maybe if he can catch a Mawile, that could be the other female that can be added to the group. I would just love that!I think that seeing Ash with a Chespin or Froakie would be awesome, but not Fennekin. I don't really know why, but Fennekin doesn't seem like a good choice of Pokemon for Ash. Maybe they could pull a Dawn and have Fennekin be like Piplup. And yes, Ash will probably obtain a Fletchling, unless Fletchling isn't really the 'regional bird' of Kalos. But no matter how his team turns out, I will still be happy to watch the new anime.
It fits him more than snivy does..or chikorita..or gible (Moreso due to the writers usually giving ash 3rd rate pokemon than actual fit most of the time) but anything's possible with a starter.I still can't see Ash getting a Fennekin. I'm quite sure that he'll get Chespin and maybe Froakie depending on what other Water Pokemon they introduce, but Fennekin doesn't really look like it would fit with Ash. Plus, I just don't want Ash to get all three starters again. One or two at the most would be okay.
I thought that Snivy fits Ash fairly well, although you have a point on Chikorita design wise. Still, I don't really see Ash getting a Fennekin. I'd much rather see him capture a different Fire type, or by some stroke of luck have Talonflame cover both the Flying and Fire type roles on his team so that he can have a bit more variety on his team. But I also just want them to spread out the starters among the main cast instead of piling all of them on Ash again.It fits him more than snivy does..or chikorita..or gible (Moreso due to the writers usually giving ash 3rd rate pokemon than actual fit most of the time) but anything's possible with a starter.
