The lights are on
Catching 'em all is certainly a big part of the Pokémon lineage, but even the most successful trainer starts small. The October release of Pokémon X and Pokémon Y seems far away, but it's not too early to start planning. For instance, which of the three starter creatures are you going to be picking?
The three Pokémon below fall under the reliable fire-, water-, and grass-type starter templates. It's tough to analyze them from just the images below, but the fact that Froakie is one of the three candidates it much easier. Froakie it is.
What do you think? Do any of these guys jump out at you?
Look for Pokémon X and Pokémon Y on the 3DS this October.

I actually think they are all pretty cool. Besides gen 1, there has always been one starter that I just thought was stupid. Hopefully this is a good generation. White was the first game I played for less than 80 hours.
at least the names are creative. Cant wait to see their evolutions!
I usually go for the one that looks the coolest, which in my opinion is the fire type. But don't worry, your choice was a close second.
For me, it's right now between Chespin and Froakie (that's saying a lot since I never pick the grass-type). But I'll probably have to see their evolutions before I make my final decision.
So... Froakie sucks, huh? :)
That is one terrible design. Guess I'll be going Plant- or Fire-based with this one!
There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that Ken Sugimori has been kidnapped by Gamefreak, and is in their basement where they flagellate him all year until he creates 150 more character designs.
An artist conveys emotion through their work, and his is all too clear. It's pain. Stop it, Gamefreak, you're killing him!
(That said I'm still really excited to play these)
NEW POKEMON????????? I don't know why but I just got a surge of adrenalin. I am super Stoked for this, this is the game I think most people have been waiting for.
All 3 looks appealing. Can't wait to see their evolutions.
I like all of them, but I hope Fennekin's second and third forms don't have fighting as a second type, please, three in a row is enough. We don't need more Fire-Fighting puns. I'm going with Froakie, it's a tradition of mine to go with the water starter.
I love them.
So cute !
Fennekin, nuff said.
actually for once all three starters look good to me every Pokemon game i play i always pick the fire starter but grass and water look pretty good
Jesus, those things look awful.
