Hello, I'm a new player that's looking to specialize in frigate pvp. I want to start off pvping early (probably solo). What race has the best pvp frigates? Thanks in advance.

Doesnt matter which race has the best, 1-4 days and you can fly every races frigate in the game, The strongest all out combat ships are:

Amarr: Punisher
Caldari: Merlin
Gallante: Tristan
Minmatar: Rifter

There also the most expensive frigates, Every ship in the game has its advantages and disadvantages.

In the end just fly what ever the hell you want to fly!

Some people like to act like one race is overpowered in comparison to others, or one race is underpowered, but they really are very well balanced. Each race has its positives and negatives, and each race has a wide range of frigates to choose from.

Caldari and Gallente both use hybrid turrets, which are limited in damage type to thermal and kinetic.
Caldari favors missiles, which can use different types of damages.
Gallente favors drones, which can also use different types of damages.
Minmatar uses projectile turrets which can use ammo that has a wide range of damage types, like EM and explosive.
Amarr uses laser turrets which requires no ammo but uses more capacitor and only does EM and thermal damage.

That's just the surface of the differences between the races.

You can train each races frigate skill pretty easily, but it might be good to just stick with one so you can concentrate on becoming proficient with it. The key is just becoming proficient with the one you are using. However, contrary to what some people may claim, there's no "I win" button.

If you find you like frigate combat then as soon as you can start to train up for an Assault Frig, and then train for the Tech 2 small weapons of choice (projectile, hybrid, missile etc).

AF's are superb fun to fly and deal out some serious damage :)
