    wow seriously. check out the boxarts
    http://www.serebii.net/box.jpg (caution, huge pictures)

    If anyone still doesnt think Xerneas is at least Grass, then they might as well think that Yveltal cannot fly.

    It definitely looks to be AT LEAST part Grass, but I was pretty convinced of that from the start. Yveltal I still have no idea what type it could be, although I'm still banking on Flying/???. The box art in general looks fantastic though, it looks like it was really well done! I was almost going to base my game decision on that but they both look fantastic.

      That is a great hint towards their Part Typing.

      So with it being practically confirmed that Sylveon is a new type, I'm thinking that maybe Xerneas will be that type combined with Grass whereas Yveltal will be Flying/Dark. The new type could be effective against Dark and cancel out any weaknesses when pitting the two against each other. I think that would make sense, then the two act as equally powerful representations of their respective elements without one overruling the other.

        For the millionth time, type match-up between the mascots DOES NOT MATTER.

        It can be 200% one-sided and gamefreak will use the conceptually fitting types anyway!

          I'll hate for a 4x disadvantage between the legendaries...and right now it seems that can only happen if Xerneas is part Grass/Fighting...2x is okay.

            Grass/Rock (because of the bones?) Grass/Electric (because of the neurons?) - For Xerneas

            Flying/Poison (because of liquid blood) - For Yvetal...

            And they balance out. Unless Yvetal is Flying/Fighting (because of muscle)

            Grass and Flying for sure, but as for whether they have a second type, idk. Would it be that crazy if they actually DIDN'T?

            It would be a first for both mascots to be a single type, but yeah agreeing with the above for Xerneas being atleast Grass and Yveltal being Flying.

            What about Groudon and Kyogre? they were single type mascots.

            Right now I'm guessing Grass/Something and Flying/Dark although I really am hoping that there are no knew types... it does appear as though there will be so Xerneas is probably of the probable new type.

              Maybe or maybe not, we didn't have a steel mascot until 4 and we still don't have a dark mascot so they could save the mascot for the new type until later, they don't necessary have to make a mascot that type due to it being introduced in the same generation is what I'm trying to say.

                Xerneas - Light/Ground
                Yveltal - Dark/Flying
                Z-Kraken - Rock/Water

                Also anyone find it weird that people in this poll say they prefer Y to X, but in the "Which are you buying" poll, people said they are buying X more than Y...

                I wouldn't bother with the krakken thing honestly, since we still don't know if it exists. However, I don't think Xerneas is going to be a Ground type either. All the leaves and everything in the background of the X definitely suggest it being a Grass type (at least partially).

                  Grass in the background doesn't mean anything... Look at the last generation... Some of the Pokemon look like one type, but they aren't. Life and Earth mirror Death and Skies so it makes sense to me... Kraken being left with the Water and Rock if it does exist.

                    Grass and plant life can be linked with life so Xerneas may be Grass/ ? still. Also we have yet to have confirmation that's the theme so we should be cautious with linking their types with unconfirmed themes.

                      I have an idea about what the last legendary might be


                      I think that it is
                      Mountain=Yveltal (Hawk-like so i guess high on a mountain)
                      Central=Xerneas (Most of the region has grass)
                      Coastal=Third Legendary

                      So is there something that can take Z shape and lives in the sea?Yes and also something affiliated with Norse Mythology.
                      Jörmungandr:Loki's child which was thrown into the sea by Odin
                      It is also called the world serpent(Pikachu's lightning all over the world)because it can engulf the world with its body.

                      What do you think?

                          Yvetal doesn't have to be part Flying. I think it might be Poison/Dark.

                            The clouds in Y's box art and the fact that it's based on a bird make me believe that it will be part flying. However what if it's primary type, along with Xerneas is Fairy? Thus far four Pokémon have yet to have their types revealed, those being Sylveon, Newtwo and the mascots. I think that there's a chance all four may be at least part new type if one does exist.

However what if it's primary type, along with Xerneas is Fairy? Thus far four Pokémon have yet to have their types revealed, those being Sylveon, Newtwo and the mascots. I think that there's a chance all four may be at least part new type if one does exist.
                            To hear Mewtwo being a "Fairy"...it might scare some people xD

                            As for Xerneas, it could be a new type, but I think it would be kind of odd for "omg new type in this gen!!" and then only one mascot is the new type (because I honestly can't see Ylveltal being a new type...especially one that is called "Fairy," even if Ylveltal has mythological origins).
                            I definitely agree that Ylveltal will probably be part Flying. If we're going by the boxart, the foliage on X's tells me Xerneas will be part Grass.

                              Xerneas seems very composed while Yveltal looks more fearsome.

                                Anyone notice how Yveltal's art pose sorta looks like a Heart? Like if it closes in more.

                                Also it's heart/chest area glowed in the first video.

                                  It's suppose to be a Y. I think that glowing may have been the light passing though it's body as it's suppose to represent width, while Xerneas is height.

                                  I don't really think that X and Y have anything to do with axes and dimensions. I think they're more to correspond with chromosomes. Maybe Xerneas will be a female Pokémon and Yveltal will be male as a representation of that?

                                    I know but it's curved in the art and if it closes it'll resemble a heart. Also it has veins and arteries, blood vessels, which resemble that of a heart.
