Starter Pokémon are Pokémon that the trainer choses at the beginning of their journey. You can receive them by going Professor Sycamore's lab, then Professor Sycamore will give you the choice of three Pokémon. The trainer can choose either a Grass type, Fire type, or Water type.

In the Kalos region, these three Pokémon are starters:

  • The Grass type, Chespin 
  • The Fire type, Fennekin
  • The Water type, Froakie

Of course, all of them evolve.

  • Chespin --> Quilladin --> Chesnaught
  • Fennekin --> Braixen --> Delphox
  • Froakie --> Frogadier --> Greninja
