Chespin! Fennekin! Froakie! (Tretta)
Chespin! Fennekin! Froakie! (Japanese: ハリマロン！ フォッコ！ ケロマツ！) is the first set in The Pokémon Tretta series, and the ninth set overall. It features 48 Tretta.
Chespin! Fennekin! Froakie! marks the start of the The Pokémon Tretta series. It includes graphical changes to the user interface on all upgraded Pokémon Tretta machines, and further changes to the illustration style and layout on Tretta tiles. It is the first Tretta set to feature Generation VI Pokémon, with 15 overall, including the Kalos starter Pokémon and some of their evolutions, new Fairy-type Pokémon, and the Legendary Pokémon Xerneas as the set's Legend-class Tretta. All standard Tretta are colored "neon yellow" for this set. The numbering system for this set reverts to 00, reflecting the start of a new Generation. This is also the first set to include a Secret Tretta, Milotic, which has the collection number 00-??, and is on a colorless tile.
While the locations in Search Mode remain unchanged, the setting for the game itself changed for the first time, moving away from the Poké Ball-themed island to Beginning Island (Japanese: まくあけじま Makuake-jima). All subsequent The Pokémon Tretta series sets have a specific place name in addition to a seasonal theme, with Beginning Island featuring a spring theme.
The Fervor mechanic is amended slightly in this set. Instead of activating at the start of Battle Mode and lasting for all three rounds, Fervor changes at the start of each round instead. Depending on the set the Tretta in use are from, Pokémon may fluctuate between normal and "Good Condition", or normal and "Bad Condition" over the course of Battle Mode.
For players with Tretta Reports, any Pokémon that became an Extra Attacker over the course of the player's play history can now be selected as a Partner Pokémon. This was previously limited to only Bulbasaur, Charmander, or Squirtle until Witness Genesect!, only Turtwig, Chimchar, or Piplup until Let's Go Everyone! Let's Catch It!, and only Bagon or Beldum until this set. This also includes the Reshiram, Zekrom, and Kyurem available via Extra Campaign (now defunct), previously only usable in special events.
The Regular Tour (Japanese: レギュラーツアー) feature is introduced in this set for those with Tretta Reports, and uses points accumulated in battles to increase a player's cup rank. Players start off with the Bronze Cup, which increases to the Silver Cup, then the Gold Cup, and finally to the Rainbow Cup. Increasing the cup rank rewards players with more effective Poké Balls to be used in Catch Mode. Cup ranks may also drop if a player does not perform well during normal play.
Friend Power, introduced in Let's Go Everyone! Let's Catch It!, is also amended in this set. Previously, catching five of the same Pokémon would activate Friend Power for that Pokémon, but this was changed to a unique requisite for each.
