While the horns don't look electrical per say it is a possibility. Or maybe it's Grass/Electric...that'll be unique ;3
    That Steel/Electric prediction is pretty good. I can see that, Jingledeer's horns being electric-powered. It seems like a possibility. For Skybacon, however, it seems that the most obvious typing is Dark/Flying. But we've been surprised with types before.

    I also disagree with some of you about Light-type and all that stuff. I believe that's it, no more types will be introduced. There is no Light-type, Sound-type, or anything. It just seems like a real hassle to add another one, and possibly make previous Pokemon that type as well, along with balancing. Don't get me wrong, a new type would be cool, but I don't see it happening, at least not now. xD

      I'll be surprised if Yvetal isn't a mix of the following types: Ghost,Dark, or Fire as it's Primary type with Dragon,or Flying as it's secondary type. As it doesn't seem like it could be anything else...

      It has to be part flying or dragon imo, otherwise I'm not sure how it'd get into the air. XD;

        Well I guess they could give it Levitate like they did with Flygon and the Latis...

        Oh right Levitate too. In some way it'll be able to avoid stuff from the ground I'm assuming :x

          Yeah, or if it's Dragon I guess it'll be floating even though it may not be given levitate, sort of like the Tao trio which can fly but don't have either levitate or are part flying.

          If Xerneas is indeed part electric, and if Yvetal is indeed part Fire (I'm guessing it'll be dark but one may never know) I see the third being Water as a call back to the beasts sort of like how the Tao trio were a call back to the bird trio.

            Me too! Although I do somewhat doubt they'll be too useful as most cover legendaries tend to have sucky abilities :(

              The most useful cover legendaries with abilities, were the Hoenn mascots. The rest all have pressure...or some form of mold breaker, except for Giratina who has levitate in it's cover forme (Origin forme). So perhaps they'll have pressure again, or some mold breaker...maybe even a form of levitate...

                Really that's not all entirely true. Drizzle is nice but only in competitive play seeing as you can't use Kyogre in any of the facilities. It also opens the owner up to its weaknesses a bit more than normal. Same with Drought on Groudon. Air Lock Rayquaza is also fairly useless as an ability unless you are trying to battle against weather teams. Either way this is all just in the competitive aspect. Truely they are no more useless than Pressure which causes your opponent to run out of attacks twice as fast.

                Their usefulness isn't any better than any other cover legend. So it really doesn't effect what abilities the two new ones can have.

                Honestly...Reshiram and Zekrom's are better. Reshiram/Zekrom's allow his attacks to hit past defensive abilities. I mean its special Mold Breakers.

                Their abilities allow them to attack through these abilities:
                Battle Armor
                Big Pecks
                Clear Body
                Contrary
                Damp
                Dry Skin
                Filter

                Insomnia
                Keen Eye
                Leaf Guard
                Levitate
                Light Metal
                Lightningrod
                Limber
                Magic Bounce
                Magma Armor
                Marvel Scale
                Motor Drive
                Multiscale
                Oblivious
                Own Tempo
                Sand Veil
                Shell Armor
                Shield Dust
                Simple
                Snow Cloak
                Solid Rock
                Soundproof
                Sticky Hold
                Storm Drain
                Sturdy

                Tangled Feet
                Telepathy
                Thick Fat
                Unaware
                Vital Spirit
                Volt Absorb
                Water Absorb
                Water Veil
                White Smoke
                Wonder Guard
                Wonder Skin


                I'm hoping they do something similar with Reshiram/Zekrom's ability.

                  Well weather rules competive battling these days it seems, so I see theirs as very useful...but that's just me. Of course Zekrom and Reshiram are useful too, just never really used them much...
                  Anyways on topic, I hope that the legends have whole new abilities that aren't Cloud nine, or Mold breaker by another name (Air lock, and Turboblaze, and Teravolt) as I'll like to see some diversity in abilities. Maybe give Xerneas Sap sipper...while as useful as the already mentioned abilities it seems like it'll fit it well being a Stag and all.

                  I think it'll likely be something related to genetics. Whether it's gene-altering or not - I don't know. But I'm sure it'll have something to do with that.

                    I like the genetics idea, but I think they're related to Norse myth. Xerneas might be based around one of the four stags, Dáinn, Dvalinn, Duneyrr and Duraþrór, that guard the tree. Yveltal might be based on Nidhogg, Veðrfölnir the hawk, or the unnamed eagle that sits upon Yggdrasil, the world tree.

                    Then again, who's to say they can't do both?

                      I think it could be both genetics and Norse mythology.

                      There's nothing that said they can't combine influences....that might actually be more interesting because it will be less predictable what will happen.

                        Also it can be a pun on the family tree.
                        Perhaps this generation will have changed breeding 'genetics' (aka mechanics).

                        Anyways perhaps Xerneas stores the genome within those horns, sort of like Mew has all the genes of every Pokemon (except for the weather trio, Dragon trio, and Regis (man made), Arceus, Lake trio, and maybe even the Tao trio (not sure on this one)). The evil team may want that data so that they can create the Ultimate Pokemon.

                        Then again, who's to say they can't do both?
                        They can easily base their designs off of Norse mythology, but influence their back story in the games on genetics.

                        Don't you think that would feel to repetitive and closely related to the story of Mewtwo though? Although, I could see Newtwo fitting in with the purpose of Yveltal and Xerneas here with that idea.

                        Maybe those Pokemon together have created lots of abnormalities in DNA everywhere, and thus why they need to stay parted? Relative to genetics and means norse mythology can still fit in!

                          Perhaps. I read a theory that perhaps the two legends may create something when traded... it'll be interesting if that were to come true...

                          Perhaps these two legends cause Pokemon to mutate (maybe Sylveon and Newmew mutated do to their presence?)

                            This is actually pretty plausible, the more I think about it! Though you would think they could possibly cause each other to mutate, following that logic, though. xD Just something interesting to point out, unless these two do have a mutated form we don't know about...

                              That would be pretty strange. We have the Pokemon to back it up, but I'm not sure if that's their purpose in it. I suppose that would kinda explain X and Y, but mutation is still kinda crazy. Or maybe I'm thinking of it incorrectly... modification perhaps? Although since we are speaking of genetics, mutation probably is the proper word. Just makes them sound evil... *shudder*

                              As for trading, they always make some new mechanic with each generation (or at least it feels like it) so I wouldn't be surprised.

                              Eh. I'm not crazy for pre-ordering. I'll just buy Y on the day it comes out and get X for my birthday two weeks later (or vice versa). Pretty sweet deal imo.

                                Wouldn't that mean Xerneas and Yveltal would have to be present in the upcoming Genesect/Mewtwo movie?

                                  Kyurem's movie didn't have Reshiram and Zekrom, and it could still change forms. Also the Deoxys movie lacks the meteors needed to transform it. Anime forme changes aren't always like the games' version.

                                  Xerneas looks amazing, the other one is pretty meh. But that's how I like it, for me there's been a main legendary with a way better design than the other since R/S/E which has made it easy for me to choose which version to buy.

                                  Groudon > Kyogre, Dialga > Palkia, Reshiram > Zekrom

                                  Ho-oh vs Lugia was a bit closer though. Anyway I'm happy with the designs for this reason.

                                    I have no clue what types they will be, so this will be a fun guessing game to look back at when the types are released.
