    Love how Yveltal looks, I'm surprised both X & Y and pretty equally popular

      This is my official prediction in what each of their types is going to be:

      Xerneas: Electric/Dark (the rainbow lights on its antlers point to Electric, while the color scheme for the rest of its body makes me think Dark). However it could also be just plain Electric, Electric/Grass (as we saw it in a forest and its a deer), or even Electric/Ice (as it reminds me of a reindeer, especially with those Christmas light antlers)

      Yveltal: Dragon/Fighting (its obviously inspired by a dragon of some sort and I event saw somewhere that its name could come from Wyvern). The Fighting subtype is a guess based on the fact that its wings and tail have giant finger-like protrusions that could roll up into fists and pack one hell of a punch. However, it could also be a Dark type judging by the overall dark color scheme.

          Xerneas just looks bad

          Like Arceus mated Dialga with a Stanler

          Their names are ridiculous, but the Flying one looks much better

            This might sound kinda crazy, but could it be possible that they might try to do a three type system this time around. I mean a huge shot in the dark, but I mean, alot of the characteristics of both legendaries sort of point to having more than 2 types.

            Although...that's highly unlikely, but here would be my theory

            Xerneas: Psychic/Steel/Grass or Electric/Steel/Grass
            Yveltal: Posion/Flying/Dark Fire/Flying/Dark

            It would obviously turn the game mechanics on it's head, but it would be pretty wild.

            The same could be said for quite a few Pokémon that we're already familiar with to be honest. The problem with giving any Pokémon a third type, even a legendary, is that not only does it complicate the type system and mechanics, but it'll increase the number of weaknesses a Pokémon may have as well as increase the calculated damage to 8x or more depending on which types you put together. I wouldn't want these two to have that type of disadvantage.

            I'd never dismiss the idea of triple types entirely, because sometimes you just can't predict what GameFreak might do next, but I think to bring it in now would make things a bit too much of a mess. To besides, I don't think it's really needed when we haven't completed all the possible type combinations yet.

            That's something I wouldn't mind with Xerneas and Yveltal, is if they're given a type combo that hasn't been done yet. Although, it's hard to say which, especially for Yveltal, which could easily turn out to be a Fire/Flying, Dark/Flying, or possibly Dark/Fire.

              Something I'm just now noticing...Yveltal has a fluffy collar around his lower neck, a collar very similar to that of condor, vulture, and buzzards. So...I can't see him as an eagle as he's speculated to be. Even his beak seem similar to those three.

                Yeah I didn't see the eagle thing either even though I believed the theory. However Yvetal does look like an eagle, especially with its Sugimori art.

                I always thought Yveltal looked like a Quetzalcoatl. I never really saw it as an eagle.

                I never totally wrapped my head around the eagle speculation for Yveltal. To me, it has always been more reminiscent between the mix of the vulture family and a Phoenix, especially when we first saw it in the video.

                  Its not gonna be an exact representation of what its based on, otherwise its not a Pokemon.

                  The reason why it has a vulture look along with the more threatening design and the creepy veins like patterns, might be that it is also supposed to embody a death-related theme in contrast to Xerneas' who could be about life.

                    Skybacon to me looks like a cross between a vulture and a wyvern.

                    Ya I agree with that. Plus generally I just get the same sort of feeling as I get with Mandibuzz overall, which was that it was evil and is related to bad. The vein stuff just kind of cements it tbh.

                      A Normal/Steel legend, really? That would be... quite the disappointing typing.

                      Electric/Dark and Flying/Dark sound good to me. Would be interesting if both legends were part dark - possible plot device?

                      I agree, to give Xerneas a typing like Normal/Steel would seem quite bland. Not to mention, it'll have a terrible weakness against Fighting types. I personally can't stop thinking it may end up Grass/Steel or Grass/Psychic though.

                      However, the two mascots sharing a typing, Dark as you mentioned, wouldn't be out of the question. The number of mascots that already share the Dragon type together has truthfully gone overboard. Shared Dark-types would be a welcome change in my opinion.

                      I want to remind everyone that the Musketeers are forest-dwellers(iirc?) but none of them are grass-types, so maybe Yveltal isn't a grass type at all~!

                        I like both of them - they appeal to me a lot more than Reshiram and Zekrom did, although not quite as much as Dialga and Palkia - although I can't take Xerneas seriously...it just looks too much like the forest spirit from Princess Mononoke. Every time I see it, the drums start pounding in my head. I'll almost certainly be naming it "A****aka" when I get it.

                        Yveltal has an interesting design, but to be honest my interest in it will die completely if it turns out to be yet another dragon-type, because I am absolutely sick to death of dragon legendaries. I'd like to see a more interesting type combination for it...one that doesn't involve being a dragon.

                          Im still convinced they won't do fancy dual types on mascots.

                          Not yet...

                          I mean, there is no need for them to resort to exotic combos for the main legendaries.

                          Think about it.

                          All they did in the past 5 generations (thats 11 epic legendaries) was go for ONE ELEMENTAL TYPE
                          Every single one of these that was dual typed, was either
                          -Flying for common sense
                          -Dragon for epicness.

                          Psychic / Flying
                          Fire / Flying

                          Ground
                          Water
                          Dragon / Flying

                          Water / Dragon
                          Steel / Dragon
                          Ghost / Dragon

                          Dragon / Fire
                          Dragon / Electric
                          Dragon / Ice


                          And with
                          1. there still being plenty of types left that werent personified on a game cover yet
                          2. Yveltal highly likely to be another /Flying anyway


                          I'm very confident they'll both embody just one type we haven't seen yet.

                          Xerneas could turn out to be plenty of things, from pure Psychic to pure Steel...but my bet is still on pure Grass
                          And Yveltal screams Dark, so Dark/Flying until I see any reason to think otherwise.

                          Eh, two of them are found in caves...in BW2 all three are found in the middle of roads basically..
                          They have a special relation to a moor in the northwest.

                          Xerneas stands in front of a forest of huge trees in the trailer, and if they do represent life and death, Grass is the most "life" type I can think off.

                          They were originally forest-dwellers until their forest got burned down, I believe, then they went towards caves. In B2/W2, I suppose you could go as far as to say that they were just about homeless, pretty much being roaming, traveling Pokemon in search of a strong trainer to be with.

                          I mean, I guess I'm trying to tie this in with Xerneas and say that it might be a type other than grass, but live in a forest area that it calls "home".

                            Lol, almost everybody wants Yveltal, but i want Xerneas. Grass for the win! (And if it isn't grass, then still, any of his other possible types, like psychic and steel are also pretty awesome) Also, a pure normal type legendary would be awesomeness..

                            Why have I not posted here yet?

                            I have to say I do love the designs of these two, Xerneas' antlers are extremely colorful and Yveltal just looks plain badass. I've been fangirling over them already, alongside the starters.

                            However, as for their types I could see Xerneas being Steel/Psychic (it sorta looks metallic) while Yveltal probably would be Dark/Flying. I just don't imagine Xerneas looking like a Grass-type.
