Froakie ADORABLE!? ADOOORRRABLLE!?
It looks like Nintendo looked at
and thought, GOOD IDEA!
Fennekin just reminds me of a Chihuahua, and punting said creatures.
And Chespin seems to be what happened when some unethical scientist/spriter mixed Oshawott, Pikachu, and Sewaddle into some genetic abomination.
And the legendaries. SO. MUCH. DERP.
Note: I actually like Chihuahuas, and have never actually had the urge to punt one. Fennekin, on the other hand...
