Apart from the majestic Design of the pokemons, what i really Like is that, for me, These legendaries don't look "Godly" . By looking at them , i don't get the feeeling that they are the masters of Space/Time or created whole regions or things like that.They are different from legendaries of past three Gens.

I think these are the best ones in a while. As much as I love Reshiram and Zekrom, they look kind of messy to me. Personally the Y legend vulture thing is totally beast. "X" is really majestic and the rainbow antlers thing looks really pretty.

My thinking is, "Y" is either a Dark/Flying which would be awesome cause we need more Dark-type legendary Pokemon, or a Psychic Flying. "X" looks like it's a Grass/Steel to me cause of it's "sword feet" and it looks similar to Virizion ( I know that doesn't really imply

They're both amazing, but I shall be getting which ever one has the deer in it. It's pupil is shaped like an X so I guess it could be the mascot for Pokemon X.

Their names are revealed.


I have no idea how to pronounce these. ZER-NE_UA and Ye-Ven-Tal??? Yveltal sound oddly cool, though Xerneas sounds alot cooler.

OMG What are those weird names? I can't even pronounce the second one. The most accurate way of pronounciation I can think of is Y-veltal.
Anyway, Yveltal looks weird and cool at the same time

I'm looking forward to seeing what their names mean (their name origin and that)

Either way Yveltal is still really beastly and you can always nickname them if you don't like the name. It's likely what I'll do though I usually never rename Legendary Pokemon.

Odd choices for names, I have no idea what they could be named for, other than the obvious X and Y reason. With Zekrom and Reshiram there was the obvious Romulus and Remus thing, with this I have no clue.

Anyone getting into the origin of these names ? Something from the Norse mythology perhaps.

It kind of sounds to me like the legendary Pokémon are pronounced more like this:

Xernea "Zer-ne-a" (as in Eternal)

Yveltal "Why-vel-tall" (as in Wyvern and Vulture)


Edit: Never mind, someone's found the official pronunciation of them already.

Yeah I'm loving those names; they're quite unique~! I think it's ee-vell-tall, but regardless, Yveltal and Xerneas are still awesome!

I'm hoping the rest of the Pokemon aren't named like this... But I'm glad we finally (as if it's been a long time) know there names.

My friend on PO just told me this.
Xerne = ZURR-nee-us
Yveltal = ee-VELL-tall

That's how they are pronounced.


Nevermind, I'm slow. I hope they pick better names when the game gets translated in English.

These are legendaries, the names are the same between all versions, also, they're given these names on the English sites as well as the Japanese sites, so no they won't be changed.

Perfect names go with perfect Pokemon. I'll eventually find out, despite the fact that it took me about a month to figure how to pronounce Diaruga and Parukia.
