I really hope neither have a 4x weakness. That would make them very undesirable to have on your team, especially in competitive battling. No debilitating abilities either, Regigigas would have been awesome without Slow Start, same with Slaking and Traunt. I still am pulling for a Light-type on Xerneas, Light type is way over due. The rumor is that new types may be introduced.

Yeah, those kinds of abilities are the only thing I see making them NU...
My hopes for a Light type have gone down tbh. I don't really see Xerneas being light anymore.

It could be a dualism concept. Xerneas is Light, Yvaltal is Dark. Considering BW's mascots were based off of Taoism it is possible.

It could be possible although if that's the case it'd basically imply one gender is evil and one gender is good, due to being most likely based around chromosomes. :( and light is good while dark is evil...

After Black and White, any hope I had for a Light-type went down the drain. With all the secrecy over Xerneas and Yveltal's type, one does have to wonder if they'll pull out something from under the rug and slap on a new type to each of them. I'm just not sure if they will.

Actually, thinking about their type(s), I'd be totally okay if Xerneas and Yveltal were both just one type instead of two.

Yveltal could be the master of Night while Xerneas the master of Day.
And the third legendary could be the master of ....well a world that has neither day nor night but is trapped and cant exert its power.You know how was the future world in PMD:Explorers of Darkness/Time with Prima Dialga.

That inference had nothing to do with the X and Y naming. I based it off of the appearance of the Pokémon. As a side note both genders have the X chromosomes. It is just the presence of a Y as opposed to a second X that determines gender. Typically Pokémon Games are named after the mascots.
  • Red => Charizard/Fire
  • Green => Venasaur/Green
  • Blue => Blastoise/Water

  • Ruby => Groudon and Rubies are the same color
  • Sapphire => Kyogre and Sapphires are the same color
  • Emerald => Raquaza and Emeralds are the same color
  • Diamond => Dialga has a Diamond like gem in its chest
  • Pearl => Palkia has Pearls in its shoulders
  • Platinum => Giratina has Grey in its color scheme the same color as the Element Platinum
  • Black => the color of Zekrom the enemy of Zekrom/Black Kyurem
  • White => the color of Reshiram the enemy of Zekrom/White Kyurem
  • X=> the X in Xerneas's eyes
  • Y => the shape of Yvaltal

That's actually a pretty cool idea. Perhaps Z (as I'm dubbing it for now) is the Master of Eternal Twilight (eternal twilight seems to appear the most in games such as Twilight town in Kingdom Hearts, and I believe Zelda's Twilight Princess also had eternal Twilight.) or M.E.T if one wants to shorten it.

Master of day and night is pretty awesome. Except... Xerneas doesn't really look like a master of day, and same for Yveltal. :'(

Yveltal is honestly one of the cooler legendaries they've made in recent times.

Dragon/Dark would be cool but Dark/Flying just as awesome.

I personally don't know which one I like better. Which causes major problems in deciding which version to get.

As long as Skybacon isn't part dragon type, I'll be content. I'm honestly getting tired of all the dragon type legendaries.

Hey that actually makes a lot of sense... but it'd make more sense if Yveltal was originally seen in Heaven and not just in the sky :(

Both are amazing and innovative. I'm really impressed with Nintendo this time around for the legendaries. No more trash designs like Trubbish and Vanillite!

I am a bit biased towards the deer/elk, though. It reminds me of Mononoke Hime - favourite film ever - which compels me to favour it over the phoenix-bird. I'll be buying the version that features X for sure.

Maybe they were thinking of Heaven= Sky when they made this trailor thus showing it in the sky. It's possible it's based on Japanese home land of the gods too. Amaterasu is in charge of the Shinto gods heaven so perhaps Yvetal really is based on her crow, the Yatagasu. and this is only part of it's wiki page

"In Japanese mythology, this flying creature is a raven or a Jungle Crow called Yatagarasu (八咫烏?, "eight-span crow") [13] and the appearance of the great bird is construed as evidence of the will of Heaven or divine intervention in human affairs.[ "
if it is based on it there's a chance the justice theory may be true...

I'd be iffy if that was the origin behind them. We don't want anymore controversies surrounding Pokemon than we have currently, and incorporating Heavenly bodies into it would only fuel the fire, imo.

Same here, though I decided to go with X since I usually get the second version while my brother gets the first. I'm sure he's going to pick Yveltal, which is fine with me since Xerneas is just as cool.

Do you guys think they will feature another legendary equal to these two and maybe make another sequel after them much like what they are doing for the past 5 generations?

Well Arceus is based on Shiva, they can make it like that. Also Lugia is based on a Shinto Sea Dragon god (the father of Toyotahime who married Amaterasu's greatgrandson.), and the Weather trio are based on Hebrew myths of old...and Shaymin is named/based after part of the Jewish version of heaven already...

I don't think so!! I mean... we have a God Pokemon, so being based around Heaven or anything like that isn't really that... far in terms of difference? :x

Well, these two just confirm everyone's speculations on new types.

There's Xerenas with his Light-horns (A cousin of sawsbuck, santler and virizion, i suppose?), which confirms light type.

And then they're my personal favourite, yvetal, which seems to have soundwaves on its body. It's also often seen in a vertical position, which might mean it's sending out waves and vibrations.

They don't confirm anything, people thought Light was going to appear in Gen V due to Reshiram's angel like appearance but it didn't, with Reshiram being Dragon/Fire.

Anyways I've had this thought for awhile, what if Xerneas is Steel/Electric with the horns being lit up by it's internal electricity? Lighting can sometimes look branched out too like horns. While the horns don't look electrical per say it is a possibility. Or maybe it's Grass/Electric...that'll be unique ;3
