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? Dragonace (talk) 20:13, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
