Wouldn't Grass/Psychic and Flying/Dark lead to Yveltal having a massive Advantage over Xerneas ? However, if it's Electric/Psychic and Flying/Dark, then it evens out beautifully . But then again we had Groudon and kyogre, so idk.

I honestly think they'll most likely be singular typed than dual typed. I mean, one can easily mistaken Groudon for a fire-type, especially since it's fire-based and whatnot, but it's actually ground. Same with Kyogre.

My theory is that if Yveltal is even part flying, that still gives it a good advantage of Xerneas unless Xerneas is part steel, in which case, as Xander already stated, is pretty unlikely to happen given that Xerneas seems to be pretty flexible(unless it's a flexible kind of steel?? idk). If you really want to balance things out without one side having an advantage over the other, make them both singular type, because that would make it a whole lot easier.

I mean, just going by the looks, we have most people assuming that Xerneas is either Psychic, Grass, and heck, even Normal-type, as well as Steel. If we look at Yveltal, it'll be Fire, Dark, and flying. Which means that, within any mix of these types, one would have the advantage over the other(assuming that they're both dual-typed).

That being said, again, they'll probably be one type. :x

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...
Nooope extremely unlikely imo. GF links to make their legendaries unique with interesting typings, just giving them normal is just kind of not really a compliment to them. :( Um, not compliment, I mean, it's just not really a way to make them stand out as interesting/strong and unique legendaries.

That's why I said I hope not. XD I was more or less basing that off of the assumption that GF loves surprises...I thought their type would be something completely unexpected.

I think that Yveltal will be Dark/something, it just looks so dark-like. I think its secondary typing will be Flying tbh since it shares a similar resemblance to Lugia. As for Xerneas, the fact that it's in a forest gives off the Normal/Grass feel. But I doubt we'd get a legendary with a typing like that. Its colouring makes it look like it could be either Steel or Water, and its antler things give off a Psychic feel. Steel/Psychic would be nice, but maybe Water/Steel? Psychic/Grass? (pls no)

Xerneas reminds me too much of Sawsbuck (my arch-nemesis in BW and BW2). Plus Yveltal just looks frickin awesome.

Yveltal looks better in my opinion, though I've always liked the idea of a supermassive super-cool Pokemon. In comparison Xerneas just looks... less impressive.

i was thinking that perhaps they might try and introduce a triple typing system for Xerneas and Yveltal, as there is such a variance in what types they could be otherwise.

i was thinking Yveltal could be perhaps dark, flying and electric. Xerneas could be perhaps psychic, steel and grass, or perhaps the colours on It's horns are meant to indicate its typing

Mew and Mewtwo are classics (simple, yet interesting)
Lugia and Ho-ho were moderately interesting
Kyogre, Groudon bored me.
Palkia Dialga bored me.
Zekrom and Reshiram bored me.
The last three seemed like your generic and bulky legendaries.

I am very optimistic about generation six legendaries!
First off, they have an organic composition, like blood vessels and veiny!
I think that these starters break the mold of generic bulky legendaries and introduce a more elegant, regal, yet pernicious exteriors. No complaints on my end!

My feelings EXACTLY! Although, I feel like Yveltal looks a bit more "bulky" and "generic;"
Xerneas is a very fresh look from the last three generations! >DDD Good job PokeDevs!!

I like them both because they're unique (even if Xerneas is the so-called Virizion 2.0), but I personally like Yveltal more because it's cool.

Fenneking...
Ok, now that seems like a cool setup with the legendaries. Nice balance.

I like your thinking there, that does balance out quite well

I understand the speculation that there will be a Z, but honestly, I can't think of a way that they'd be able to do it.

If Yveltal is a sky deity (for the Y-axis) , and Xerneas is an Earth deity (for the X-axis), you have to realize that Z-legend would just be another Earth deity, (If y-axis is altitude, and the x-axis tracks you to your left and right, the z-axis is just forward and back, still on the ground) and I think it would be difficult to differentiate him with Xerneas, and even if they did, having two Earth deities wouldn't make the trio very balanced.

I still think there probably will be one, but I think it'll be interesting exactly how they deal with it.

I can't think of a reason why Xerneas would be water besides its blue colouring. Then again, look at Dialga and Palkia's typing and tell me you weren't surprised.

Yeah it seems very land-based, or even from a forest, so grass/steel or something would suit it more, while psychic also seems out of place too from how it really looks, but ya as Vapor said, looks lie, etc. :(

It'll be a shocker if Yveltas doesn't turn out to be a dark type, that's for sure. XD

I prefer the flying bulged vains monster over the deer. It just looks more manly and powerful lol
It's clever the way it's in the shape of a "Y".

yeah, Yveltal/Skybacon is most likely going to be dark type.
Now about the second type...

Is it me or does Xerneas look like a Sawbuck on Roids? I would get it anyway but still.

I wonder what the Z pokemon will be tho

Now I get the whole Norse Legend thing: http://www.kimikogaming.net/pokemon-...endary-dragon/

This has to be the basis for these Pokemon. It also means that Yvetal is clearly part Flying and Xerneas is part Ground.

Interesting link. The ground typing makes sense with the X/horizontal/terrain theme. Then with the gemstone crested antlers...I am now also leaning toward a metal second type, which would allude to earth metals.

This makes so much sense! I'd better brush up on my Norse mythology before this game launches... xD
I'm still leaning on Skybacon's 2nd type being Dark or Dragon and Jingledeer's being Grass or Steel.

Honestly I think it's closer to Virizion than that XD; Sawsbuck is just... different, while Virizion has the same kind of pose, just add in Arceus' head and it's p much Xerneas really.

I figured just from their names (which sound rather norse) that they might be inspired by norse myth, this article convinces me of that so much more, it's well written too.
