Gen 6: Pick your baby by Turtle-Arts Gen 6: Pick your baby by Turtle-Arts
Bandwagon awaaaaaaay!!!!!! XD

Yup, the gen 6 starters were released... today... I think it was just today. So naturally there's been a flood of art for them. Which I thought I'd join in on. :> This is an odd batch of starters. Kind of weird, though they might possibly have cool evolutions if the pokemon people do it right. But that's pretty rare these days so their evos will probably suck. XD But the fire type is a fox, and I love foxes soooo.... just as long as it's not a vulpix clone then I'll be alright with it. XD Not sure what on earth that grass thing is supposed to be exactly, but it was surprisingly fun to draw. (which drawing these I may have actually just sold myself on chespin as my fave, which is funny because I think he's the ugliest of the three. XD) And that frog... huge eyes... kind of creepy. >_>

My predictions for their evolved types?
Fennekin- fire/fighting. Since they can't seem to ever do anything else anymore
Chespin- possibly grass/ground, or grass/fighting
Froakie- Water/ice or water/flying

So yeah, I've already ranted about this in my journal, so now I'll just ask:
Which one are you taking? :>

Fennekin will end up for being Fire/Psychic, Chespin will end up as Grass/Fighting, and Froakie ends up as Water/Dark.

The first legit evolutions besides Chikorita, Snivy, and Turtwig (I just can't help, I LOVE Grass types)

Grass fighting? Aww, boo. I was hoping for like, grass/ground or grass/rock.

This artwork is really cool. It's so different to all the others.

 

I'll take Chespin by the way, exactly because you can't say, what he exactly is.

There already are firetype foxes and watertype frogs, but nothing like chespin.

So far I'm leaning towards the frog as far as second evolutions go. Plus, I'm partial to the water starters. XD Chespin's second evo is... strange. But maybe he'll get cool by the third one, because I liked his first form and I was hoping he'd be better. :/

Yeah, I also was kind a shocked :D But I got used to it. We all just expected something different.

And he is based on a Paladin (Quilladin=Paladin) so maby his final form will be a noble knight or something like that :3

A paladin, really? I don't see that at all. :/

It's an obvious theory:

 

Fennekin/Braixen: Is going to be psychic and uses a wand. It's a mage.

Froakie/Frogadier: It is a Rogue. That also tells us the German name "Amphitzel" which contains "Spitzel" which is a word for spy.

Chespin/Quilladin: It is a Paladin. The 2nd name tells it and it's an armored Pokemon.

 

So I think the theory of them representing the RPG classes is what they thought for creating them.

No no, I mean, I don't see a paladin at all in the design. It looks like a bouncy ball, not a knight. :/

Maby in his final form :3

So this is my hope for it. Because there was a lot of hate on it. Just because it didn't become cool and badass but a happy round chestnut.

I think I'd go with Chespin. Fennekin's actual version looks too froo-froo for me, otherwise I think I'd pick that. ^^; Plus its second evolved form must be pretty cool, I hope. :meow:
Love the detail you used. X3

Judging from its different names and the design, the grass starter seems to be a chestnut porcupine (the leaf looking things turn into needles when it attacks).

:iconturtle-arts:
Turtle-Arts Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Yup, that's what I'm figuring. But I'm hoping when it evolves it gets more porcupine-ish. :>

:iconalphaxxi:
AlphaXXI Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2013  Student General Artist
It's probably going to be a proper porcupine in its first evolved form, and then be different in the third (maybe the chestnut is going to grow into a tree or something).
