Am I the only one to notice that Chespin looks like Bianca?
I'm always serious… remember last time?
And I yes I do think they look better than most from Gen 5th. (all in my opinion
so nows a good a time as any for you to start laughing at me for having one.
Seeing these new starters and legendaries have me feeling excited in Pokemon again. I actually want to really dive into Pokemon games again now to prepare myself for these new ones. Black/White 1&2 while good games for those who liked them, have yet to really convince me they're worth my time. I touched them for little awhile, then never bothered to again. Gonna have to now just for the sake of it, but I'll start with games like Soulsilver just so that I can get comfortable then work my way up to Black/White 1&2.
Well, I just mean... that's 5 that you're saying are better than most of about a hundred.
It's just an opinion, obviously, but I dunno. Guess it's hard to believe one. But I have a hard time taking anyone seriously when bashing Gen 5 because a lot of their complaints are crazy and seem to ignore how bland some of the older ones actually looked.
If we started with Gen 5 and worked toward Gen 1, people would not be holding the original 151 in such high regard as they do (nothing to do with you, just an observation).
I can see not wanting to play BW1/2 after playing so many of the games but I honestly can't think of going back to previous games with how fast battle are, how much more involved the story is, the animations and so on. The only real pull of past games (aside from nostalgia) is that they had more post game. BW/2 don't have a lot of "after the story" stuff.

Well, I mean, Chikorita, but yes. I agree.

Chestnut and Spin/ Pin ? or cheese (because it's a rodent of some kind) and pin (look at it's hat and tail)?
The Fire Starter is Fennekin
Which is Fennec (a species of fox which the design is similar too) and Kin most likely being from Kindle
The Water is Froakie
Fro could be from Frog or Frozen if it's later evolutions turn out to be Ice type...odd for a frog...and "oakie" could be a play on "Croaky"
Chespin is Chestnut and pins, like needles. The Japanese name implies it will evolve into a hedgehog of some sort.
Kin in Fennekin is a double meaning. Kindle could be one, but I think it's more likely "kin" like a Fennec kin, relating to it being a relative of its evolutions. They do stuff like this a lot. For example, the Japanese name translates to something along the lines of Fox Child.
Froakie could be Frog, Croak and Toadie/Toady (like a person who sucks up to someone else/does their dirty work) but that's debatable (but logical, since it's like a Frog word).

If you look, Chespin clearly uses night slash, Fennekin uses a psychic type move, and Froakie is possible doing a fighting type move, leading me to guess that their evolutions will be Grass/Dark, Fire/Psychic, and Water/Fighting. You know what that would mean? A double triangle! Grass is good against water, but at the same time, Fighting is good against Dark! Fire is good against Grass, but Dark is good against Psychic! Water is good against Fire, but Psychic is good against Fighting! That would mean that every starter is neutral against each other. Awesome! ^_^
I keep seeing people making this wild assumption about moves that we can't tell and that Fennekin is using a Psychic move solely because we see something purple being used.
I mean, they could do that, and I've been waiting for that to happen, but the basis is solely on colored moves and a physical (could be normal) move.
I wouldn't be against this or even that surprised, but the evidence is weak. Could be a poison move, and you don't have to be Psychic to use Psychic moves.
