Chespin seems to resemble a tree - the head is compared as leaves and the body the lower part of the tree. It has a tough shell covering its head and back.
Despite having a curious nature that tends to get it in trouble, Chespin keeps an optimistic outlook and doesn't worry about small details.
|The quills on its head are usually soft. When it flexes them, the points become so hard and sharp that they can pierce rock.|
|Such a thick shell of wood covers its head and back that even a direct hit from a truck wouldn't faze it.|
|Leveling Generation VI|
- Chespin is the first Grass-type starter Pokémon that is not reptile-based but based on a mammal, in this case a rodent or a marsupial. Judging by its Japanese, English, French, German, Spanish, Italian and Korean name, it appears to be based on a porcupine.
- Chespin bears a resemblance to the Generation V starter Oshawott.
Chespin's name comes from the animal porcupine and the nut chestnut.
