Default Need some help deciding...

Sorry if this isn't a thread that's really allowed, if so, feel free to delete it Mods :l

With Pokemon X & Y coming out in a week, and the recent leaks, i've been having a SUPER difficult time deciding which starter to choose, so some 'help' would be nice

My team WAS going to consist of Grass/Water/Fire (Chespin, Squirtle, Torchic)
But the final evo design of Chespin doesn't appeal to me too much, but Froakie's does, and then I would have Water/Water/Fire :O

Kind of a pathetic thread, but it would be super awesome for some opinions.

Why you no choose Venosaur!?
Or stay with Chespin. His final evolution isnt TOO bad >,>
What Im doing is (Insert Chespin or Froakie here), Charmander and Torchic, because of the Dual Types (Fire/Flying) just like Charizard, every final evo will have dual types (Chespin Dark and Grass, Froakie Water and Fighting.) I hope this helps nudge your decision.

That does help a bit, Torchic's final is Fire/fighting, Squirtle's final is just Water.
The reason I want to stick with Squirtle is because he's always been my favorite :/

I'm going with Fennekin and Bulbasaur as my starters, but I understand where you're coming from. Squirtle was my first ever starter and I'd like to bring him on another journey, but I'm really interested in trying out Clauncher. Plus, I haven't used a Bulbasaur since Blue, so it would be fun.

I'll just wait and see what happens. I have a feeling that once the option is presented to me, I may cave and choose Squirtle anyway. I guess you could go with Froakie/Bulbasaur/Torchic. I'm actually boxing my Torchic, since I wanna use Pancham.

I love Chespins Final evo, except the only problem is its lack of green.

You do realise you can get Fenekin AND Squirte? Right?
You get to choose one Kalos starter, and one Kanto starter ._.

Gredninja is my bro 4 lyfe.

I'm not thinking about using a Kanto starter, or a Torchic, but I would choose Squirtle is my other bro 4 lyfe.

Froakie and Charmander so I can get Greninja and Mega Charizard X. Torchic is cool and all, but it is getting boxed. I will use it when I play my copy of Y or after I beat the game.

Chespin and Squritle. I want a grass/water/fire combo as well, and I love Blastoise way more than Froakie's final form. I didn't like Chespin's final form that much either, but it is starting to grow on me. I can see myself using it.

I cannot decide myself. I really like chespin and froakie but am not a huge fan of fennekin. Problem is, two of my friends that are getting it are choosing chespin and froakie so do you guys think I should just go with fennekin? I will be choosing charmander as my kanto starter because Charizard is my all time favorite character.
