Re: Starters final forms?

I just want Fennekin to evolve into a Pokemon like Arcanine and Ash catch it.

Re: Starters final forms?

Except Fennekin (who might only have a fully-fledged fox evolution line), Chespin might become a large hedgehog-like Pokémon. As for Froakie, he might end up like Seismitoad or Toxicroak or a Water/Fighting type or a Water/Ice type guy. That's all I can deduce, can't wait for real evolutions.

Re: Starters final forms?

Good to see that Froakie is getting an awesome foam beard in the 3rd stage, as it should be. Only thing is that I'm worried about GF, and their tendecy to surprise with the 3rd stage. Gen 4 was okay, but Gen 5 took a turn for the worst.
Gen 4 was okay? Nope, Gen 4 was far better than "okay". :p Sinnoh starter are the best.
And I disagree, with the exception of Samurott, the other two final stages of the Unova starters look awesome. Emboar and Serperior have pretty awesome designs.

I just want Fennekin to evolve into a Pokemon like Arcanine and Ash catch it.
I hope not. Arcanine is ugly. Fennekin should evolve into something like Ninetales (without the tails) or like the fakemon I posted sometime ago.

Of course Sinnoh's the best, what else could be said of the king that is Empoleon? I mean okay in the sense that they nailed it when it came to surprising us. Lets agree to disagree however when it comes to gen 5, cause the jump was far too large to even warm up to them. Nice designs, but poor execution as Pokemon on a general level.

I really like this one.

Now that's a Froakie I can really get behind. The other were nice, but this a beast on its own.

Ugh... That froakie-evo is damn ugly and no more fire/fighting + bipedal fire-starters!

And about Chespins name... It seems that some kind of domestic hedgehogs with a brown color are called 'Chestnut-brown hedgehogs'. Chespin, Chestnut + pins. The other languages have hedgehog in the name of Chespin, I see a link between chestnuts and hedgehogs now. Interesting.

BTW, this theory isn't plausible at all. Hedgehogs are mistaken for chestnuts sometimes though.

Re: Starters final forms?

It's apparently been confirmed on Serebii that Chespin, Fennekin and Froakie will all be pure Grass, Fire and Water types... What do you guys think?

Saw this coming. Almost all first-stage starter mons have one type. (bulbasaur excluded)

EDIT: Mudkip is only water, damn myself...

I know, I'm wondering whether or not they mean just in their Basic stages they will be pure types... I'm excited now nonetheless.

EDIT: I had to second guess Mudkip too D: lol.

And lol at Mudkip-confusion!:D

I kind of like that final evo for Fennekin, even though I'd prefer it to remain quadupedal.

Froakie's scares me though.

Re: Starters final forms?

What, they are going to be pure types? Well, it is better than having crappy secondary types, but man, Game Freak knows how to be boring and unexciting sometimes.

Of course Sinnoh's the best, what else could be said of the king that is Empoleon? I mean okay in the sense that they nailed it when it came to surprising us.
Empoleon is god. :ksmile:

Lets agree to disagree however when it comes to gen 5, cause the jump was far too large to even warm up to them. Nice designs, but poor execution as Pokemon on a general level.
Uh, yeah, I can agree with that. The execution was pretty lame.



LOL
What the hell is Froakie evo xD It is the worst one I ever saw.

I liked the last evo of the Gen 5 starters very much, it's up to the person ;)

Does this mean the base forms or the evolutions as well? At least if that means the evos too that it means Fennekin's wont be Fire/Fighting.

As I said:

The information serebii got was from the MAIN SITE OF POKEMON. There they only have the first-stages together with their types. So, no, nothing about further stages, at all. ;)

Nintendo could still troll us and make a fire/fighting third stage.:D

EDIT: Edited my post, because I sounded mean, sorry, didn't want to.

Re: Starters final forms?

Wat, I though there was mentions about the typings of the starters final stages in the site...
But there isn't... so... I guess we can keep speculating their final types. :p

I liked them two, except Samurott, but that doesn't change the fact the execution was lame.
Serperior and Samurott could have been Grass/Something and Water/Something, their movepools were lame in BW, etc.
Execution wasn't really lame in my opinion and why always dual-typed? It doesn't fit those two at all to be honest. (again, a personal opinion)

BTW, it's too, not two;)

No surprise there. I doubt this will include their evos as well, but I wouldn't mind fully evolved pure type starters.

If they did actually make them fully evolved pure types, it would be the first time since Gen II.
