    I dunno... I think the one on the left could be really cool... and maybe the one in the middle too if it's a pig-based pokemon.

    When I first saw them, I thought that the one on the left was the water type just cause it has that mythical-sorta-like-fin-tail thing... and I think it'd be pretty cool if that's true, but I can see that he might be a fire type.

    And oh yeah, I don't see the one on the right being anywhere near piplup (besides in general body size) because it looks like a beaver-thing to me! :P

    Top looks like Turtwig/Spoink mix
    Left looks like a charmander,
    and right looks like a Beaver (ZOMG speculation XD ::EDIT:: Darn, Bidoof is already a beaver >_>)
    hmm...the colors better help, or GF is officially out of ideas.

    well, actually I could see it being more like a sea otter... but they've already done that too :P

    And yeah, the left one is totally not going to be the water type because it's so stream-lined. I mean c'mon, it's screaming water! I could see it being a majestic seal or dolphin thing w/ feet or something xD

    Oh yeah! The left one probably isn't fire either cause it's hand-thing is going really close to its tail... so basically, if it was fire, it'd have its had in fire... which I doubt they would do for the pose.

    EDIT: something else I noticed.... The one on the left is SOOOO close to a zora from zelda in physique! I could totally see it being water! Plus its hand looks like a fin too.

    There could be subtle hints from previous Generations as to which is which type.

    For example, the official Platinum site, I believe it was, had Piplup on the left, Chimchar above and Turtwig on the right. Just a random thought that could be (and likely will be) completely wrong~

    Anyway, my opinion on the silhouettes... I thought they'd have looked better, at least. The left one looks okay, but the other two... I don't know, I'm a little partial to the top one and the right one looks like it has a slinky for part of its body... and I fear that it may be the Water-type Starter... but I'll hold my true opinions until we get actual images to look at, other than just silly little silhouettes...

    I don't know where everyone is getting the gopher and such vibes from the left one... because I think it kinda looks more like a semi-Cyndaquil in terms of head shape, the tail fins of Milotic and the general body shape of Charmander.

    The top one kind of looks like a rabbit-ised version of Turtwig and the right one looks like someone edited Piplup's sprite and added a slinky and tail feathers to it, or something. One thing that is for sure; the right one will definitely be some sort of bird-like creature.

    Anyway... my guesses on type will be either:
    Water-, Fire-, Grass-;

    Or:
    Fire-, Grass-, Water-;

    I call awesome observation skillz if my first is proven correct~

    To me, the middle one looks like a Pikachu with a funny tail and the left is a skinny charmander. =/

    Just a note that CoroCoro's website has updated, now also showing these silhouettes--this means they'll be revealed in the upcoming issue, which is expected to leak in the next few days. When they are, this thread shall be updated. ^_^

    I'm pretty sure I'm not going to like these starters. They just look dumb. I really hope I'm proven wrong.

    Here's some guesses I got a kick out of:

    The middle one on the second image looks pretty awesome! We really do need a Red Panda Pokemon, because Red Pandas are awesome! I'm not too keen on the Grass-type guesses, though; we've had a similar Pokemon in Treecko's line.
    I'm a little dubious about the remaining, though. If the Water-type Starter IS the one that looks like its going to be some kind of bird, I just hope its going to be more Speed-oriented, since all the Water-type Starters have been more defensive or with a Speed stat lower than 90 at final stage evolution. (Fire has had Charizard, Typhlosion and Infernape, while Grass has had Sceptile; Water is yet to have a truly swift Starter)

    Overall though, they look pretty cool; nice going. ^^

    The middle one in the first image should be a Fire Donkey.
