    Mine would probably be Fennekin. I really like how it fully evolves into a part Psychic type, plus it's a great looking fox. I also like Froakie.

    Mine would be easily be Froakie. I somehow like how chill that water frog is plus I also like how cool Greninja is, especially with Ash-Greninja and the variety of moves it can learn.

    It's a tough choice. On one hand, I got a shiny Fennekin in pokemon Y without ANY restarts, it just popped up. But I'd still go Chespin, I love chesnaught's design.

    Fennekin! I love foxes, and there will never be enough fox-like pokemon for me (heck, I'd take an entire fox gen lol) , I also really like Braixen. It took a while fox me to come around to the fact that Fennekin goes bipedal but I'll excuse since Braixen is so cute. I'm okay with Delphox, don't love it, don't hate it.

    I also think Froakie's pretty cool!

    Froakie's always been my favorite. I thought it was cute in a quirky sort of way, and coming off of Gen V, which introduced hardly any water types that really appealed to me, it was kind of a relief to find one right off the bat in Gen VI. The fact that it evolved into a ninja frog was pretty cool, too, though I've always kinda preferred Frogadier to Greninja design-wise.

    All that said, Fennekin runs a very close second. Delphox's fire/psychic typing was a nice surprise, and I'm pretty much with landipan in that there's always room for more foxes. xD

    Fokko (Fennekin), mainly because I like foxes and Fire-types in general. Fokko's design is cute as well, so that's a plus.

    Froakie, it is adorable and I like Greninja's design better than those of the other fully evolved Kalos starters. Protean is also incredible and it has a good movepool.
    While I really don't like Chespin and especially Quilladin's designs, Chesnaught is still pretty cool-looking. Fennekin and Braixen look sleek and elegant, but Delphox is really disappointing, especially its ear fur and colour scheme.

    I really like Fennekin. It has my favourite design out of the three starters by far. Back when the Kalos starters were first revealed, I instantly took a liking to Fennekin based on its design and decided I would use it on my main version (Y).
    I liked Delphox's Psychic typing a lot, too.

    I like the Froakie the most, despite picking Chespin. I like the designs of the whole Froakie line. I'm not a fan of Chespin and Quilladin's designs, but I really like Chesnaught's, which is the sole reason I went with Chespin.

    I originally started the games without looking at the new Pokemon apart from the starters and the mascots, I only looked up the levels they evolved and their base stats to get a good nature. I loved Fennekin the most (and I usually choose the Fire Type) and I picked it without hesitation! Once it evolved into Braixen I loved it even more and assumed it would become Fire/Fairy due to it resembling a witch and I assumed since some fairies are magic it's typing would reflect that. Then it evolved into Delphox and while I seriously dislike it's sprite, I love the official artwork for it! But before seeing the artwork I felt that it was no where near as adorable as it's pre-evolutions...and then I saw my rival's Greninja! It looks so awesome and seeing it tank my Psychic (I don't know why, but I always feel I have to beat my rival's starter with my starter, ever since gen 1) made realize, "Dang! He's Water/Dark, that's awesome!!!"

    Even though I love Fennekin and Braixen's designs more than Froakie and Frogadier, I would choose Greninja as my favorite.

    Chespin because of Chesnaught. I didn't even like Greninja and Delphox whereas Chesnaught always looked cool to me.

    I like Froakie the most, but all the starters have something appealing (I prefer Quilladin over Frogadier for example).

    I like Fennekin the most, however Delphox was a bit disappointing utility-wise and design. Wasn't expecting a bipedal Mage to have a shallow move pool.

    One thing I like about the Kalos starters is how they each represent characher archetypes in an RPG. That being a warrior, mage, and thief. Out of the three starters from Kalos I'd have to say:
    1. Froakie is my first choice because of its evolutions and the sleek design Greninja has. I usually taught it moves like Aerial Ace and Toxic to reflect its ninja design.
    2. Chespin is my second choice because its design is interesting. Quillidan is odd but I can tolerate it until it evolves into Chesnaught.
    3. Fennekin is my third and last choice because of evolutions. Fennekin is adorable but once it evolves into Braxin and Delphox it loses its appeal. The biggest problem i have with its design is the oversized pieces of red fur coming out of its ears.

    Fennekin. It's also one of my favorite Pokémon of all time. I love foxes, witches, and Fire type is my favorite type

    Easily Fennekin. Love foxes. As some say above, it's my favorite Kalos starter. Froakie comes second and Chespin comes third.

    Fennekin for sure!! I love foxes, and I've pretty much stuck with fire starters for a while anyway.

    I used to love Keromatsu (Froakie), although the hype surrounding Gekkouga (Greninja) made me grow tired of the Kalos frogs due to overexposure.

    Fennekin and Froakie, mostly due to typing and design

    Downside is that they take forever to learn good moves, with Psychic at 57 and Night Slash at 77

    I have to say Froakie. Its whole evolutionary line feels absolutely unique and Greninja, for being a starter's final evolution has an unusually vast movepool which even contains a signature attack with multiple hits and priority value.
