a very interesting speculation that was published in pokejungle, they speculate that the legendary pokemon may be based on a creature from norse mythology, and actualy it seems to fit.
I think the idea of Norse Mythology being used as an influence on Yveltal and Xerneas is a good one. It has certainly come up time and time again, but I wouldn't go as far as to say the Norse Mythology will have anything to do with the Pokémon themselves as some others believe. For example, having an impact on their actual Pokémon background or storyline. The Norse Mythology could have just been an influence on what to base the mascots after.

there was some discussion here that xerneas and yveltal are the pokemons who responsible for the evolutions, which is pretty cool idea that can fit well the chromosomes concept of the games

That actually does make some sense in a way. Although we may not user their backstories, it could just be the concept for the designs of the Pokémon. Plus if they do, Norse mythology is one of the more interesting mythologies that exist, so I definitely wouldn't mind if that was the basis!

I definitely agree! I haven't read much about it, but it seems to be a mythology full of imagination and possibilities, which would be a great basis for some new and original pokemon!

Let's see if we don't have pokemons based on Ymir, Thor, Odin, Loki, Hel, Nidhogg, Jormungand, Ratatoskrm, Freyja, Vedfolnir, etc.

The four stag Dáinn, Dvalinn, Duneyrr and Duraþrór could be like the Muskeeters in gen 5 where you have 3 mains and one added later.

Odin could be taken with a new Arceus forme xD. A trickster legendary based on Loki could have Dark/Fairy (if it's really a type for this generation).
I hope that the third member of the trio looks as cool as the first two, bet it'll be the serpent as that's the only thing I see as looking like Z.

My vote goes to Xerneas because it looks so graceful and gentle. For the past few games we've had box mascots that look all bad-ass and cool, so Xerneas will be refreshing to look at for a change.

One for Thor would make an amazing Electric/Fighting type.

Thor's wife can be Fairy (again if it's a new type) as she's the goddess of love and fairies in some stories and myths can mess with love.

Wonder how the theme of genetics will be split this generation, gen 5 split Tao into Yin and and Yang, gen 4 split Space-Time into Time and Space, gen 3 split Land and Sea into Land and Sea. Or will the X and Y chromosomes really be the split of this generation's theme?

I've been waiting for a pokemon like this since Gen3, and Thor would be an awesome inspiration

Love it. If Norse mythology does somehow get use, I'd love to see this included. Plus, that typing just sounds awesome (Only weak to Ground and Psychic, but neutral to most everything else).

However, the the new Arceus form comment...no. Just no. Arceus has 17 forms. I think we're good at this point. Plus, the whole point is that it changes forms based on the plates that it holds. Giving it a new way to change forms just seems like a really poor choice to me.

Hmmm....what does everyone think about a Fighting/Flying type? I think the weaknesses are something to question slightly (Flying/Ice/Electric/psychic), but other than that, does anyone think that this might be a good offensive typing of some sort?

I would love for a new Pokemon to have the Fighting/Flying combo!!
When i first saw Braviary i actually thought he might get this typing...
4 weaknesses aren't that bad, especially since its own Fighting type would take care of the Ice weakness. He wouldn't have many resistences though

Well if we have a new type the new type forme of Arcues could have a special look from the rest.
Anyways what if Yvetal turns out to be Flying/Fighting?! that'll be a nice surprise. Xerneas could be Psychic/Grass and we'll have our first two way weakness and strong mascots.

I personally prefer Yveltal over Xerneas, partially because I love birds. They both look pretty nice to me, actually. Based on their design, however, I can't even begin to guess what types they may be. Nintendo did a great job as keeping the types ambiguous so far in Generation 6.

Do the boxarts give away their type in any sense?

Speaking of typing, Xerneas to me recently gives the idea of Psychic, due to it's mystical and magical characteristic, and electric type, due to it's ability to create light.

Electric/Psychic type combination is very unique and cool.

If one of them is Psychic, I'd rather see Xerneas more fitting for it.
Yveltal seems more like a Physical attacker, Xerneas more likely a special one

X definitely has the better legendary, though Y's is attracting me since that's the game I'll probably end up getting!

And again the backgrounds inside the symbols are a sky on Yveltals dark cover and a forest on Xerneas' bright cover.

I definitely prefer the X candidate. I wish that there was a Z Pokemon so we could have the whole 3D X,Y,Z thing going on.
