I think the Elk Legendary Pokemon looks like the offspring of Stantler, Sawsbuck, Dialga and Virizion. The dark vulture looking Legendary, looks mysterious and especially badass, so I'm going to have to say I like it much more.

I know it's been said for years, but the introduction of a Light typing would make sense now by looking at these two legendaries.

Y-bird looks like a Dark/Flying type to me, while X-deer looks like Light/Steel type.

Think about it, makes sense. Badass vulture and psychic deer! No, no it doesn't really make any sense at all :/

Ok, think some people might be getting confused. As far as most people are aware.

This is Pokemon X:


This is Pokemon Y:

The Elk has X's in it's eyes during the close up, so I'm almost 120% sure that's X, unless they decide to BW us and reverse it.

I personally have never been one to say no to a giant Dragon/Bird thingy so I like Y a little more right now, but as a competitive battler, I will pick based on typing and stats.

I'm still wondering why Y doesn't have the Y letter inside of its pupils too...
I still need to see them better (waiting for artworks) and then I'll decide which one I like the most. At this time given, I must admit that I like both of them - this has never happened to me before! Dilemma!

As far as I know, I've neer been colorblind (might I be becoming now?) but it looks red to me (despite the light in the center of its body, which makes it look pink).

Too late for the 2D sprites. Let's say hello to the 3D era!

I think people overlooked the fact of which ones which, going in depth about it 'representing an X/Y'.

If you just look at the colours of them it speaks for itself.

I like both X and Y equally. I like how GameFreak incorporated the human chromosomes into their designs.

But it is fun to over analyse new Pokemon and different aspects of them, when something new has been announced! :P

I don't know about your guys, but I can't picture a storyline from the way they look.

X is the Virizion like thing.
Y is the dark vulture. Seriously look at the shape, it's wings and tail look like a Y.

Super Virizion looks better than Mutant Staraptor imo. They might dethrone Dialga & Palkia for ugliest legendary pokemon, lol.

This!


I'm in love with "X" I think it's absolutely stunning!
"Y" on the other hand... I'm not even sure what it is. Does it have a face?

It will be interesting to see the "relationship" between these two. Every other legendary pair has been similar to each other, and these two appear completely different!

Well, yes. If you check out this video:

Spoiler:


You'll realize it has a face.

This type of design is what makes me think there is going to be a heavy play on genetics in the game; I do hope so.

In the end, we could consider the DNA Splicers as a hint in Pokemon B2W2. I even thought that Y looks a bit like a chromosome (I mean the Y chromosome). But the idea faded out when I saw the elk, which doesn't look like the X chromosome at all.

Allez, hop!

Something tells me that Pokemon X will represent nature, but I'm not sure what Pokemon Y will represent since the sky is already taken by Ho-oh.

So the nature is by Celebi and Suicune xD (and Rayquaza goes to the sky too)
There aren't so many places we could think of for X and Y that aren't taken, actually.

Celebi represents time travel, Suicune represents spring water, and Rayquaza represents the ozone layer. Those roles are entirely different.

I love both of these new legendaries, although I think I like the elk slightly more.

I love how they don't seem to be dragons (not sure about the flying red one) and they don't have this obvious "we're going to tear the world in half just by blinking" look about them. It reminds me of Ho-oh and Lugia. Which is a very good thing.

They seem more mysterious than past mascot legendaries too.

I agree with this. I actually really like that they don't look similar to each other like the more recent version mascots have. I can't wait to find out what they represent.

I'm not talking about what they represent (because Ho-oh doesn't represent the sky but the Sun), I'm talking about (and you were supposed to be talking about it too) which places would be for each one.

In this case, X and Y would represent... life and death?

Allez, hop!

This is something else I really like about these legendaries. Aside from the X and Y theme they don't feel related....it brings me back to Ho-oh and Lugia. (again :p)

Pokemon X looks like a Keldeo evolution.

What I want to know is how Pokemon X and Pokemon Y are going to be more powerful than the gods of Space and Time and the beings that bring balance to the world.

Well Galoria said the legendaries could represent Order and Chaos, given the theme of this gen.
