It i so far the only Grass type Pokemon starter not based on a reptile. Chomper4 (talk) 13:02, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
Category:Generation VI Pokémon needs to be added to the starters' pages. I'd have done it myself, but the pages are protected --PenBlooeR 14:53, 8 January 2013 (UTC
In the Name Origin section of the page Chespin is called "Chestpin" which I think is an error. I can't correct it because the page is protected. Water Max (talk) 16:02, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
I think his name may be based on a porcupine too. Chestnut and porcupine. It may even look like a porcupine. Milde (talk) 16:36, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
It could be based on Chestnut and Spin, which is related to Sonic the Hedgehog, since all of the other languages have something related to hedgehogs. No?
