I don't want Yvetal to be fire, we've had too much fire mascots third to water and Dragon. GF give us a Dark/Flying or Dark/Lightning Pokemon please...or at least a new type. Btw red doesn't always equal fire...points at Groudon.

Steel / Psychic for X is quite reasonable
Or Ghost / Steel ....

As to that Y, Flying and another type ?
Psychic, Fire, Dragon and Steel would all fit

Steel for Yvetal doesn't seem to fit imo. Fire, Flying, Electric,Ghost,Psychic, and Dark do.

Xerneas Steel, Psychic, Electric.

Maybe they are a new type based on biokinesis (the ability to control cells and one's own genes using psychic power...or maybe make the both psychics.)

lol what's up with that.

Because its red, so many of you jump to "maybe its Fire"??


Poison was an interesting thought...but I'm pretty sure this thing will be Dark...and with how it's so nicely airborne, Flying is quite granted.


I've been thinking about my earlier guess for Xerneas being Grass/Steel...
Frankly I realized it would be kind of unfair if Xerneas was Grass AND Steel, while Yveltal is Dark...and merely Flying.

So Id go as far as to say Xerneas could be pure Grass D:
Akin to the pre-Dragon legends, who have all been just one type, with only Flying as an extra
Lugia - Psychic / Flying
Ho-oh - Fire / Flying
Groudon - Ground
Kyogre - Water
Rayquaza - Dragon / Flying
...(then all either type1/Dragon or Dragon/type2)

Xerneas - Grass
Yveltal - Dark / Flying

sounds like a continuation of using the rest of the types on mascots
Or even Xerneas being Steel or something..

Both of the new legendaries are equally as awesome, but I have a slight preference to Xerneas, or Pokemon X. In my opinion, there have been too many flying legendaries or Pokemon which have wings such as the three legendary birds, Lugia, Ho-oh, etc etc. I gladly welcome another ground-dwelling legendary, this one especially. Xerneas looks really majestic with its rainbow antlers and long, elegant legs. The way it holds itself in the video really caught my attention. I wonder what type/s the legendaries would be and what will they represent?

I don't think it'll be unfair if they were Steel/Grass and Dark/Flying respectively as both will inflict 1 X damage on one another like Lugia and Ho-oh do.

So far, Xerneas appeals to me quite well than Yveltal, overall, I am a fan of the legends for this generation. Not a huge fan, but as long as I get to know the types I'll decide. xD I'm pretty sure Xerneas may be a grass type, second typing...well I don't know xD. But I guess we'll know more in the future!

For some reason, I'm thinking that they can both be dark types; at least from their own artwork. I'm thinking that Xerneas can be Steel / Dark, and Yveltal can be Dark / Flying. Or, at least their typing can reflect DNA... somehow. If that's the case I'm not sure how darkness can correspond with that; unless there's a hidden meaning with dark like, "death" or psychic as "rebirth".

Eh, for now, I guess I think they can be either Dark or Steel.

Dark...could represent the idea that evil is inherited... while Xerneas reflects that environment reflects how a person ends up not genes. Basically behavioral pokemon.

Nature vs Nurture? That would be interesting.

Both are awesome Xerneas's body reminds me of Dialga, I like Yvetal more.

Yveltal's name Possibly from evil, that's why I think it's Flying/ Dark

Aren't you assuming the mascot legendaries won't be switched around? They did that for the 5th gen.

That was because 5th gen's theme was yin and yang, hence the invert, 6th gen's theme is not yin and yang.
Also, in the CoroCoro magazine scans, Xerneas is on a page with the Pokemon X logo and Yveltal is on a page with the Pokemon Y logo.

Yup, BW were the only games with the inverse (B2W2 set things in their correct color).
I bet the box art will look many more like epic than the fan art there.

Hm... I would be thinking that the games boxart would look something like that with Xernias and Yveltal on them, with the exception of the word "Version" on it. 'Cause the official websites don't even mention the word "version", I think Bulbapedia made that same mistake as well.

Oh my, I've found a boxart with Yveltal on it and it looks very much like how it could look like when it's revealed:

Spoiler:


And it's without the word "version" on it as well.

But it still makes me wonder, will Xernias and Yveltal look different on the boxarts when they are revealed?

They'll most likely look different, what with Black2 and White2 having new dynamic poses for their boxart, could be the start of a new trend of having mascot artwork with dynamic boxart versions.

The Sugimori arts look nice! I'm expecting a lot more fanart now that we have a clear picture of what they look like. :)

They both look breathtakingly incredible.

But I think, in dedication to the Deer God from Princess Mononoke, I'll be going for Xerneas. ://3

Kyogre>Groudon and they were supposedly equal enemies. Clearly the concept is important, not necessarily the type-match-up between them.

If Xerneas gets another type, like freaking Steel, then Yveltal being Flying simply because of its appearance seems less...special. You know, like it should be Dark/Poison at least then or something.

In Groudon's defense it's natural ability can also weaken almost all of Kyogre's attacks as well as learn Solar Beam for one shot no charge Solar Beams. I know it can work backwards with Kyogre getting the upperhand, but its just there. Groudon despite having natural type weakness can overcome Kyogre through other affinities.


And even though I've been on the nay side for this...I kinda see the possibility of new types for Xerneas/Yveltal what with the theme being about genetics, its not hard for them to throw in another type for the two to share.

As for Xerneas being steel...I almost can't see it. Sure his legs look metallic in a way, but it naturally bends which takes away from the metal look. I can even see a huge twist with both being Normal typed.

Watch as this probably ends up being the most likely scenario. XD

Though that would make them pretty weak if they were both normal type, unless they had the proper stats to back it up. .___. It'd be kind of sad to see these legendaries go down in one fighting-type move, you'd expect them to be tougher than that, so I hope not...
