Oh wow...yeah I think they just skipped a move for Howl.Since Chespin and Forakie both learn a new attack by level 8, the assumption is made that Fennekin will learn Howl at the same level that Chespin learns Rollout. By this, though, Chespin certainly looks more like an offensive attacker, Fennekin may become special, And Froakie may well become the fastest of the three.
Maybe Fennekin final can run a decent mixed set like Infernape.
We'll see...the fact that Froakie can leap a 3 story building means that it has LOTS of leg muscle strength...and beefy leg muscles means faster movement, so Froakie final just might out speed Sceptile as fastest unboosted Starter Pokemon final evo.
Or it could just end up being another Poliwrath...we'll see
