If you think it's just plain fanart of these guys, then, I'm sorry,
it's rather not.
It's quite long talk to say, but I will try to say it short to not consume your time.
Chespin, the first non-reptile grass starter, and one of those Pokemon I think are just phenomenal
in design and concept.
Then Quilladin came to be known. Maybe not an evolve of dreams for chespin,
but like with an Excadrill, one thing that is bad on him doesn't shadow my love to this guy.
Especially name. Gorgeous~!
And then, so looong wait until we get to know how third stage will has look like.
When I saw Chesnaught from leaks, my heart got broken. Not only because
it's totally different from all things I would expect, but because some things in design, that made me think
I will won't accept this pokemon AS POKEMON, like Magmortar and klink familly. Yep, true.
But I gived myself a time for breath. And I decided to draw whole Chespin line to see if they are connected besides
those all differences, like we know it for example from Oshawott line.
As you can see, I changed Chesnaught a little bit. Just my personal taste, because red stripe and thing that
chesnaught LITERALLY WEARS an armor is something I DON'T ACCEPT HERE.
Because it's digimon thing. I know what I'm saying, because I played some digimon games and I know a lot of them.

Many people hated Quilladin at first, or even still- while I am one of the minority to love him since first sight.
About Chesnaught, might because I love more animal-like Pokemons, while Chesnaught....is rather not
But after I decided to dig into his design as I see pokemons- by their design concepts and what they should be as realistic Pokemons,
I...started to like it very much <: )
a Glyptodon- with my fav colors! (I mean,those I love to wear)
I just felt in love with that...
Even I honestly hate its big face in original design XD
does any middle starter stage have signature move? huh?
does QUILava has signature move? nein.
does it mean it's not cool? NEIN
And what's wrong if someone like pre-evo more than final stage?
I prefer quilava over typhlosion but by 1%,because of cool "hair", but still love 'em both.
Chesnaught is just not in my taste it's too....hmmm,humanized?
And IT'S BOLD. if only little hair I should like him MUCH MORE.
I'm just bold-hater :C
But if you want to point that first stages are sooo loved and THEY shadow later stages, then, I agree totally.
It's just annoying, especially mudkip.
I love marshtomp and swampert, mudkip is just "nah, cutie, I cannot wait when it will evolve~"
Ahh, Chikorita, I feel sorry this pokemon is hard to train, because it's even too defensive, but since I saw it I felt in love with meganium,
one of the most beautiful pokemons to me
Why did you disliked ichespin? Sorry fpr stupid question but first time I hear that someone disliked him, I only know some ppl were neutral for him.
(maybe because in their opinion reminds of oshawott...) I just wonder.
Oh god why I cannot love chesnaught like other "team chespin"
I mean, they all have cool concept I like, but designs are too far from we know from Pokemon.
Especially binacle and klefki. They need badly to be redesigned, because their concepts are surely pokemon-like,
but still when I look at them I feel like I see monsters designed for different video game, not pokemon...
about chespin-ahaha I got it
But, then Chesnaught appeared on the internet and immediately took the place of my favorite Pokemon ever. I eventually really began to warm-up to the whole Chespin family as I noticed how precious Chespin's face is. I even warmed-up to Qualladin, he's still my least favorite of the three, but I see his potential and appreciate him now. I love the Chespin family, and I really hope to make a great cosplay costume of Chesnaught one day.
Seeing the changes you made, if the original looked like your version, I bet I'd still think the same thing.
Anyway, I like the composition of this piece. Good job.
And yes, chespin face is precious, but for me quilladin has even better because of cool hairstyle
I saw one chesnaught cosplay, did you too?
well, because I haven't changed him a lot.
Oh my goodness, really? I haven't seen any chesnaught cosplays yet. But, I just did a google image search for "chesnaught cosplay" and saw a not very good one (at least by my standards).
What's your take on the OTHER two final starter forms?
-I love fur becoming a robe, but I don't know what to say about cutting ear haircut
I want it to have long hair, because males can has it-mans also has long hair, so why not?
Also, personally I want game freak to put in effort and make delphox better robe. I don't get that mark it already has
it should be a star, reference to kadabra familly or flame shape here....
Greninja- really weird, but not too much.I accepted it just after minute
I still don't like its sharp "tail", I'm sorry to say that,but WTF- frog with like knife there
head design is all right, I can understand it. Tongue scarf is phenomenal and original, even I miss bubbles from its previous forms. I hated shurikens on legs, but when I saw how it uses signature attack in game, I got why this and why there
