Froakie speedy by Twarda8 Froakie speedy by Twarda8
Video:[link]
Image that explain my feelings: [link]

<personal opinion>Personally I think 6th generation basic stage starters are the worst set of starters in history of pokemon; they are even worse than IV generation starters. They are unoriginal, repetitive and so... artificial. Ugly "cute" roden-like grass Pikachu with body of Mijumaru, totally unoriginal fox thing with giant head and a damn frog that look like it escaped from 90's cartoon or something.
The frog is the worst. It took me some time to accept the outrageous thing and now I think I may actually choose it (unless the final evo suck); Fennekin looks so ordinary which makes the frog a better choice</personal opinion, deal with it>

Enjoy the little fella.

I think the G6 starters look *much* better than the previous generation--witness the flurry of fanart--although I agree they're not as appealing as past generations.

I think they look too much like distinct animals. Fennekin is a fox and Froakie is a frog not much else to say. Chespin is "ok"

I'm in the same boat of 'hated Froakie, may end up choosing it in the end'. Fennekin looks like it's supposed to be cute. I want to think it's cute. But I don't. Its head is too big. Chespin is okay, though pointing out its resemblance to a mish-mash of Pikachu and Mijumaru is making me wonder whether should actually pick it or not. And all the art making Froakie look so good is helping me adjust to it.

I'll wait to see the evolutions before I actually choose. Personally I like these better than Gen IV, though. IV starters are still the worst to me.

I would like Froakie if it weren't for the back legs. It could've been an adorable animal-looking frog, but now it looks like an... ugly cartoon character frog. As such probably gonna roll with Fennekin.

At any rate, cute picture! Love the eyesss <3

Nuuu. I'm really enjoying the new starters, Froakie in particular. They have a very different feel from gen 5, but really remind me of gen 2 starters, which can be a good thing or a bad thing depending on your tastes. I don't like Fennekin very much, though (might just be my aversion towards foxes), and my opinions on Chespin will depend on its evos.

I agree on the artificial feeling. I don't know where it comes from, but it's there. We'll grow used to it as time goes along, though.

I'm very curious as to which direction they'll be taking with the final evos.

Anyway, very nice Froakie drawing haha!

I agree with you. I do like Chespin though, it is pretty cute, and Froakie looks like it has potential. I'm not sure about Fenneckin. Its so saturated and pretty ugly. :< I hope they have good evolutions.

I hate them too. The fox and the frog especially don't even look like pokemon. I personally don't like the frogs giant eyes right on top of his head, and the bubble things. The fox is just a typical unoriginal cutesy fox. What's with it's eyes? I don't remember any pokemon having "anime" eyes like that (obviously pokemon is an anime, but I just mean that unfinished outline thing). But I don't know, the art style has changed so much the past few gens (which I haven't really played since ruby, just seen the pokemon). I do want to play this new one.. cause 3D Pokemon haha. Not to mention it looks so much like a recolored eevee without the neck fluff. I don't like the newer pokemon art style... The chipmunk is kinda cute (as well as the fox I admit), but it's just eh. Maybe there evolutions will be better.

I couldn't think what to pick as a starter, although in my tradition, i ALWAYS pick water starter in every new generation but if the evo sucks.... yeah i'll just break the chain and go with the grass starter.
but nice art anyhow, never would of thought of the cape bubble-like. :thumbsup:

ImDoomed Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2013
yeah, personally for me, i think the starters started to go down in the 4th
3rd and 2nd, i have a hard time choosing since i love them all, 1st its either charmander or bulbasaur, but usually, i choose charmander

5th generation is my least favorite, with snivy being the only one i'd pick, though oshawott is finally growing on me, it isn't my preferred. 6th i won't know yet till i see their evolutions, though i prefer froakie or fennekin so (i'm going to be really pissed though if it becomes another fire/fightning; i hope it'll become like fire ghost or psychic or just plain fire) chespin looks too much like oshawott for my liking.

actually, i still wish they stuck with their original plan for the 5th, where oshawott was going to be part fighting, tepig dark, and snivy's final form was going to be part dragon.

ImDoomed Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2013
i heard from a friend, and after he pointed it out at me, and looking at the first stage designs, i can see how they would have come out that way, or should have anyway.
oshawott seems more natural to be a fighting type than tepig, and the dark colors on it could have made an impression for dark, and snivy has a bit of a dragon like appearance or impression, like with the little leaves around it neck, i thought those could have become wings, or something similar.

:icontwarda8:
Twarda8 Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2013
Those were just rumours.

Oshawott line do look like a fightning type, Futachimaru trains a lot, and it is a Discipline pokemon. Tepig in another hand should be a Ground type for me. Snivy was rumoured to being a part of dragon type since the Vth gen starters release.

ImDoomed Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2013
ah, well, i wish they stuck with those rumors. they make more sense than what they did.
i'm afraid to put hope with the 6th, and i wish they would just go ahead and show the evolutions. i want to get it over with.

I understand the problems with the starters. I like them though, and I find it funny how much people hate something because it's a fox and people just so happen to love foxes.
I won't complain until I see their final forms and get used to them. I hated Emboar but I grew to love it. Older designs became less interesting to me over time as well, like Typhlosion, Charizard, Empoleon (still like it), and so on.

Again, I understand the issues. They did not blow my mind, but I won't say their the worst until it all comes together.

Nice painting.

Personally, I prefer this set of starters to everything we've seen in gens 4 and 5. Serperior is alright, but only as a standalone; snivvy isn't very impressive. I HATE how they're recycling the fire fox and water frog idea, but maybe their final evolutions make it worth it.

To be honest, I'm kind of hoping Fennekin's final evo is the ugliest, weakest thing ever to hit fire starters so everyone who loved it just because it was a fox gets a right slap in the face.

Chespin looks like it has potential, even if its a generic grass pikachu with a scraggy cape. Froakie could go either way for me.

Twarda8 Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2013
I kinda feel Froakie as Fighting type. Chespin as ground, and yup, the pokemon has potential (this doesn't change that the pokemon's basic stage is a nonono to me).

Katweet Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2013  Student General Artist
There's been some speculation about Nintendo using the second type trio (fighting > dark > psychic) in addition to the original (fire > grass > water), but obviously no one knows yet. I have Chespin pinned as dark, but ground makes sense too.

If Fennekin is another fire/fighting I think I might implode.

Cóż, szczerze mówiąc ja po zobaczeniu 6tej generacji stwierdziłam że pierwszy raz od 3iej postanowili się postarać przy designać a nie walnąć byle gówno. ;P
Ale każdy ma swoją opinię.
Niespecjalnie podoba mi się Froakie ale wydaje mi się znacznie ciekawszy od Piplupa czy Oshawotta. xD'

It's an amazing picture!

But the starter Pokémon of gen 6? They do kinda seem rushed :( (Especially Fennikin, I don't get why that one's so populair)It's a shame too, I know it will be a great game and I can see what they were aiming for but it was executed poorly. I guess we will have to see the rest of the Pokémon of gen 6, the Legendary Pokémon are kinda redeeming.

Fennekin is popular probably because there are a lot of canine-fans, feneks are cute, the pokemon looks cute (and the best from all starters IMO), it is fuzzy'n stuff.
