With the Torchic event coming out, I'm pretty sure I'll be starting with Chespin. My goal is not to repeat any types the first time through, so that immediately eliminates Fennekin and potentially precludes Froakie if it ends up becoming part Fighting. I'll probably pick up a Fairy-type for sure, maybe Sylveon. We'll see though, I might even go ahead and get both X and Y to have 2 teams and access to all the exclusives. EDIT: And quite honestly, I really wouldn't mind if we lost the ability to transfer pokemon over. It seems unlikely, but it would provide all the more incentive to do Hoenn remakes and have truly varied regional pokedexes for all of the Gen 6 games.
