Pokemon X/Y will be released on 12 October worldwide but there have already been many leaks (intentionally?) and I’m like a child in a candy store gobbling up all these tidbits.
I was initially set on Chespin but its final evolution, Chesnaught (Grass/Fighting) looks like a failed digimon so it’s probably down to Froakkie, which evolves to Greninja (Water/Dark) or Fennekin, which evolves to Delphox (Fire/Psychic).
I’m leaning towards Fennekin now but it’s always good to have a solid water type on your team just so I can surf around without a need for a HM slave.
So which version will you be getting (X)? Which starter will you be going with?
