After noticing the rainbow-colored double helix SolarAbusoru pointed out, I then noticed that the antlers of the deer-like legendary were also rainbow colored. Which led me to this thought;

X and Y are obviously DNA references. Chromosome means "Color Body". Either this means the theme is "what Pokemon are comprised of", or..they are introducing a "Light" type. Not like, opposite of evil Light, but spectrum light. Which would explain the multiple rainbow patterns seen throughout the trailer.

Or both. Both things would make the most sense.

    Dat rainbow-colored double helix...
    Its just too obvious that this generation's whole storyline is related to DNA.
    That double helix looks like a DNA anyway.

      Yeah the games are most probably related to DNA and legendaries' names will most probably start from an X and a Y.

        I was going to say that X and Y represent unknown variables/potential, which would point to you as a Trainer and the jump to new systemss, but yeah, the DNA thing makes a lot more sense ;;

        I'm way too tired to specify and speak up about the specifics and theory around it, but someone i know mentioned Life/Death and I find it fascinating and amazing if they actually took Pokemon to that level. There is a basis around this I swear but again, too lazy to really bring over what they said onto here.

          It's pretty innovative from the colors, and it did seem like they were running out with Black and White... I'm glad they changed it up though, all of these changes in Gen VI look a little intimidating but they seem to be pretty gradual in the release, since we're only getting ~20 new Pokemon in it, going by the previous rumors.

            I don't really know what to think about the names! My first thought was "Well, if they wanted to make it global, the logos should look the same in every language". Although the X and Y remain the same, Japanese logos (as usual) are different. In fact, they kind of give another hint, take a look:



            If you look at the ン (n) those rainbow signs just remind me of hydrogen bonds. Does anyone else?
            I agree with the chromosome theory.

            Agreed. Sounds and looks like it, ya.

            Logos: Well the Japanese did a great job on them, especially the way they've changed the logos to represent "This game is 3D actually". The abroad logos do so, too but very lame...

            Anyone noticed as well that they're not only going away from the usual naming tradition but as well that the 'Version' is missing?? So it's only Pokémon X and Pokémon Y

            Guys you're thinking too much bio. D: I don't know but I'm way too exposed to physics and math, so my other theory was the one Isasapiens suggested:
            Quote:
            Originally Posted by Isasapiens View Post

            I'm thinking that the whole reason they made it X and Y is related to the x-axis, y-axis and z-axis being the conventional names for the three axes in a three-dimensional Cartesian coordinate system. So if there's a third version, I think that's gonna be Z if this theory holds. I mean it's for the 3DS. A three-dimensional system / three-dimensional dual screens thingo. So I think it sort of makes sense. :\

            Plus chromosome theory suggests that the third version not be Z, imo. If anyone knows more biology than me then they should correct me, but I don't remember any other chromosome at the same league as the X chromosome and the Y chromosome. :(

            Well if they make a Z then it will still work as a reference to the three-dimensional coordinate system, I suppose. :p

            Honestly I have no idea, but I think that Pokemon game titles are starting to sound a bit silly.

            Unless they happen to release some sort of deep meaning to "X" and "Y"

            Well, since Gen IV it's been 3D. I think it's because the player won't be restricted to a grid anymore, you know, with specific X and Y coordinates.

              I like this, probably the most likely.

              So I think Gen 6 will have a certain theme just like Black and White did with their names. We might see a return of the DNA splicers used on Kyurem.
              This was my first thought. Something to do with genetic manipulation. Maybe in this region pokemon are being genetically enhanced? Or evolution could be brought on early? Starts bringing in the morality of messing with living creatures... though that is kinda deep for pokemon.

              I like that they changed the naming convention while still having a sort of connection to colors with chromosome-inspired titles. It does have me wondering if they're going to continue after this generation, since we're almost certainly going to get a Pokemon Z to complete the axes and then we'll have X, Y, Z. The end of the alphabet. It feels kind of final.

                I'm tending, at the moment, toward X and Y being references to coordinates used in mapping two dimensions. Add Z and you've got coordinates for three dimensions.

                I thought of them as generation x and generation y, but the coordinate system makes more sens e than my interpretation haha.

                    X, Y, and Z are all axes (or something like that, you know...Y-axis) and they represent the dimensions (length, width, and depth). Could be that they represent that Pokémon FINALLY went 3D and added some depth

                    btw thanks engineering class!

                    EDIT: or could be about DNA...either or, lol

                      X AND Y REFER TO CRHOMOSOMES

                      There is also a DNA strand in the japanese logos:


                      And it seems the theme is about life/death.

                      Since we have:
                      -a forest deer god standing in front of a huge tree, resembeling one himself with several lights
                      -a shady vulture like threatening monster

                      I think they're based on DNA and represents the chromosome Y and chromosome X. And that the region's evil team will be trying to do something with Pokemon DNA.

                        My thoughts did immediately go to Chromosomes too, and you can totally see that in the logo! I hope that means they've maybe enhanced the breeding in some way, spend most of my time breeding and attempting to fill the 'dex.

                        I'm really amazed by how they're now using letters instead of minerals or colours. X, Y and Z represent width, height and depth in 3D models so I think it was a wonderful idea to use them instead of minerals or colours.

                        This is an excellent change, and I see that they've now dropped the word "version" in the Pokémon titles now, so having to be simply called "Pokémon X" and "Pokémon Y", instead of being something like "Pokémon Black Version 2" or "Pokémon White Version 2".

                        Well, I'm glad they didn't start naming the games after organs like a friend of mine predicted they would.

                        But its obviously genetics, since "x, y, and z" would require a third version, something I'm not sure they'll do after what they did in Gen 5.

                          Lol yes. I'm not the only one who thought this at first.

                          But on to the DNA topic... if it is true, I would think that the goal of the evil team is to alter the DNA of the legendary, and maybe they succeed. Then, they might want to alter the DNA of all other pokemon, but you step in to stop them. But yeah, this storyline is a bit too farfetch'd, it's just whats coming to mind right now.

                          Oh, and also, I forgot to mention that its cool that they named these games something different than the normal, makes me think they'll add a lot more things that are different from past generations.

                            I think that the X and Y either represent axes on a graph or male and female chromosomes. Coldplay's album a few years back was also named X & Y but I don't think that this will have anything to do it the game haha.
