The letter 'X' on the logo is blue, and the letter 'Y' is red, so I'm taking that to mean X is the deer and Y is the demon bird dragon thingie.
(It's unlikely they mixed them up on purpose, I think it's safe to assume they're leaving the whole 'opposite' trends behind in Gen 5)
Also if the deer stood with it's legs out a bit, it'd make an X shape, whereas the flying one is definitely Y, no doubt about it.

I'm not crazy about the starter Pokemon designs, but I have to say I love the look of these legendaries. Hands down, though, Y wins for me. It just looks.. like, beyond X. It looks like a strange pairing though- like they paired Giratina with Suicune or something, there doesn't seem to be any similarities...

Also, did anyone else think "Dialga colour scheme" when they first saw X? The more I look the less I think this, but a blue body, with white metallic-looking parts.. :P

The legendaries look so much more badass than in Black/White...I'm honestly at a loss for words right now. And I'm actually stuck on which one to go for right now. x_x

Neat, I like the color scheme with the 'Y' shaped Pokemon. Black + Red are my favorite combination.

I have a feeling that they won't have any mutual types between each other. One looks more like a dragon/fire/dark-type, while the other seems like a grass/steel/dark-- hmm, maybe I'm wrong. It's actually very hard for me to predict the exact typing of the 'X' shaped Pokemon. xD

Also, and this might not seem too out-of-the-dust, but I have a feeling that there will be a 'Z' shaped Pokemon along the way.

I really like both of them more I look at them. I think I will still go for 'X', but I will want 'Y' at some point.

The new legends look a lot more intimidating than the previous ones but the dragon bird demon thingy definitely caught my eye.

I too thought of Dialga when I saw the Stag...and Virizion mixed together. Another type I can see the bird being is Electric/Dark with Levitate as it's ability. I think electric due to the red electricity like sparks on it's stomach. Also we need more Electric mascots, we've only had two thus far, Pikachu and Zekrom. We've had 3 fire and 3 water (4 in Japan) so I hope none of them are...well not like they look like fire or water types just saying.
Steel we can another of those, Dialga was cool.

Yep, I think it is rather clear now! :)
I don't know what types they will be though; be cool if Y is a Fire and Dark type.

Hey guys, maybe those two legendaries are only from Y version because they both look like a Y. Maybe there are other two with the letter X to appear in X version. Lol, you know what I'm saying? And I prefer...um...both! xD. I thought that blue legendary was a shiny Virizon!

They both look like "Y" to me but I can see the "X" in the deer/elk's eyes and most certainly see the flying one's Y-ness. I still like "X" better with its multicolorness but Y looks really cool as well. If this is the case it means it doesn't seem like they went with the opposite legendaries for each game. I also don't think they will have a type in common but it'll be interesting to see if they do.

I'm guessing this is part of a trio? And the last one to complete is Z?

I like the flying Pokemon :D
I was never really fond of Pokemon that are Quadruped.

Indeed, you never know as the 'X' Pokemon was standing a little 'Y' shaped. However, I do believe that the 'X' is the face of Pokemon X, but that is just what I believe.

The Virizon version 2 can be an X too. Look, his ears and his legs, it makes an X!

They both show signs of mirroring both letters. Just some features are a little more obvious and easier to spot, so that is why I think they are what they are.

However, it wouldn't surprise me if this turned out to be wrong.

I would be very disappointed if their names were 'X' and 'Y'.
'X' should clearly be called EXCALIBUR! You know, because of the sword feet!

They are really impressive, maybe Pokemon Y will be a Dragon/Dark,

and Pokemon X Will be a Psychic/Grass.

Also Pokemon X looks a bit like that one Fakemon on the cover of the pirate game Pokemon Jade (imo) :D

Both a very cool but I like Y better. X seems very Elegant and graceful but Y is just beyond badass. I have wanted a pokemon with that sort of a look for so long. I don't hold high hopes for some of the lesser pokemon (like Froakie and Chespin for example) but the legendaries are amazing.

I'm guessing Flying/Dark for Y and Psychic/Steel or Grass/Steel for X.
