so do a lot of snakes/ legless lizards. They have little flaps, it's pretty cool like evolution actually happening.

It WOULD make a lot of sense if it would be 'counted' as the Zodiac Dog.
(Besides Foxes beeing closely related to dogs...)
X and Y are released in October. Belive it or not, the Lunar Month between October 8th and November 6th is the ZODIAC OF THE DOG.
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH.

Actually, Chespin's a chestnut hedgehog. You can tell if you know the meaning of the words in its name in other languages. And Fennekin is a fox. There doesn't need to be a pattern people. Just having the same type is enough. Get over it.

I'm gonna have to say that this is too much of a stretch, and here are some of the reasons why:
Let's go in order of the points brought up - One, using the legs as a reason for the grass starters to be dinosaurs, while an educated reason, is not particularly valid in pokemon. If you haven't noticed, most reptilian pokemon do not touch their torsos to the ground. Second, bulbasaur's evolution tree doesn't really seem to look like any kind of dinosaur, not to mention, the prefix "-saur" does not mean it has to be a dinosaur, just a reptile. Treecko is most definitely based on a gecko, and its evolutions just build off of that (unless dilophosaurus had back boobs). Snivy and family are based on grass snakes (garter snakes, etc.). Chespin looks nothing like the "first mammal." The only ones that seem to look like dinosaurs are chikorita and turtwig's families.

Next, let's talk about the zodiac theory. Cyndaquil is a hedgehog, not a rat. It's german name even translates to FireHedgehog. Fennekin is a fennec fox, and while those are considered a canine, they are a different species than the dog, so this does not work in the zodiac, either. The other three are based on common things found in most real (or in a dragon's case, fantasy-esque) settings.

Finally, let's look at the proposed water pokemon criteria - "No water type starter is based on fully aquatic animals." So, this narrows down the available type of water pokemon to... oh... any animal that ever enters water while living on land, or vice-versa, ever. I'm looking forward to an antelope water starter, in gen 7. Basically, it's too vague for a good theory.
---
tl;dr, while a cool idea, these theories hold no real ground.

Actually Cyndaquil is a Fire mouse not a hedgehog though the quill is existent in the name. The Japanese category of Cyndaquil is Hinoarashi, which is Fire mouse. The information can be found in episode 141.

Another obvious reason for the water starters to not be fully aquatic:
How the hell is a new trainer going to catch more pokemon if their starter can't battle on land?
Good luck battling your way through a forest with magikarp....

Okay, Magikarp wasn't the best example, since it's worthless in the water as well

His english name references it, as well -- cyndaquil = cinder + quill. Quill. As in the spikes on a hedgehog.

2.The hedhegog and the rats are very similar, and I think cindaquil is more similar to a rat that a hedgegog. And the argument of the germanis... WTF? Pokemon isn't from germany, it's a idiot argument.

3. All the water type are based on animals that are not totally aquatic but they live many time in water. It's not extrange to see a cocodrile/turtle/frog/seal/penguin swiming but we don't relacionate an antilope with the water or the sea.
