  2. So this is technically the first Pokemon of Generation VI that we've seen that is an evolved form of a previously revealed Pokemon, and not only is it the main bird of the region, but it's not normal typing :0 This Pokemon is already pretty unique, and I can already see it pulling a Swellow and not really needing a third evolution, though I really would love to see one~

    I don't care that it has a crappy name. It's beautiful and I adore it already and it's perfect :') It's the bird of prey Pokemon I've been waiting for, and it's fast which I love and it's Fire/Flying! That might give it a few nasty weaknesses to common types/moves but I shall be having one anyway. Insta-fave :D

    I'm one of very few people who actually like its name! It really is a very nice bird though and I'm quite happy that they made it flying/fire, because if Fletchling is the bird we catch early on in the games then that means I could choose Chespin as my starter and still have an awesome fire type..hmm.

    It's a really nice design too, and I can easily see me falling in love with it. ♥

    I gotta agree with others on the name thing: the Japanese name would've been perfect as this birdie's English name too. But a name's a name and doesn't detract from how frelling awesome Talonflame looks - and it can learn Brave Bird to boot! I love it and will happily grab a Fletchling on my first playthrough now that I know it evolves into this. :love:

    Unless they end up shoving a mid-stager in, I'm thinking the same. It looks too big and mighty to not be the final evolutionary stage.
  6. This pokemons name..meh. Looks like they didn't even try on this name.

    Hmm, I do like its design however. I absolutely love the flames on its back, it really caught my eye. I like how his hair/feathers spike up at his head, and the color scheme for this pokemon is awesome.

    This should be enough for a 3rd evolution, but if we do get another evolution for this guy I can imagine how cool it would look.
  7. Imagine the terror the little bugs and plantimal Pokemon must feel when this guy comes along into the forest, burnin' everything to ash and cinder.

  8. :? i dunno bout this one, i'm planning on fennekin, so i hope their is another early flying type, but just not like zubat and woobat though ( they where terrible :@)
  9. Whoa...
    It looks awesome...
  10. The name..how uncreative. Still has a ring to it. But that design; It looks like a real bird of prey, unlike Pidgeot. And this thing having a fire/flying combo? I can picture KFC creating a forest fire. Its like a small yveta- //slapped.
  11. Talon and Flame, So creative. . . I'm disappointed.
    Just like with Team Flare, they had a chance to come up with an epic evil team name, but didn't.
  12. Makes me wonder why fletchling was not a 4th starter like eevee.
  13. Another good bird pokemon along with my favorite Staraptor.

  14. I think the name is standard, practical, and perfectly good, but apparently not everyone agrees.
  15. i loved dis pokemon every since i laid my eyes on it. it is definitely going on my champion team
  16. The name is not so bad
  17. I'm surprised how many don't like the name. I think it sounds really cool. This was one of the first Pokemon I used in Gen 6 and it's pretty good.
  18. Moltres just got served. Now this is a butt kicking Pokémon that I'd want. Finally they come up with a bird Fire and Flying type that's not legendary (Talonflame and Fletchinder).
