With mere weeks left until October 12th, the release of Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, the first evolutions of the new starters have been revealed. While the first evolution of a starter is not always an accurate representation of the Pokémon's final form, it does give some hints to what is about to come.

The first evolution is Braixen, the evolution of Fennekin. Standing on its hind legs and carrying a stick in its tail, Braixen gains a few tricks up its sleeves. Able to use the Psychic move Psyshock, this sneaky fox packs an unexpected punch. Chespin will evolve into the funny shaped Quilladan. Taking the appearance of a pinecone, Quilladan is described as a gentle Pokémon who avoids battle when it can. For Froakie, this cute frog evolves into a slick and confident looking Frogadier. Though his weakness is any Grass type Pokémon, he has a secret weapon called Bounce. Besides matching his physiology, Bounce is a super effective move against Grass types which will give him an advantage in battle.
