View Full Version : What is your favorite legendary of XY?

24th September 2015, 12:12 AM
So what is your favorite Kalos legendary and why?

My favorite is Zygarde because it looks cool and is a dragon.
Runner up goes to Yveltal because it is a fantastic Dark/Flying legendary.

I used to not care so much about Zygarde, but now, there's lots of promotion about it and now, I liked it because of its awesome formes.

24th September 2015, 4:03 AM
Well since there are only six Kalos Legendaries, there's not much variety to choose from. I liked Hoopa the most though I guess, with Volcanion coming in second place given its cool type combination.

Even though I don't like it a whole lot at this point in time, I suppose I like Zyagrde the better out of the six because of it's new 10% forme.

24th September 2015, 11:40 AM
Xerneas-I like the fact it represents life,as well as its design.

I like Xerneas, in spite of its typing, because of the OH DEER GOD memesof the varied assembly of myths it references; Yggdrasil in Norse mythology, the Tree of Life in Jewish scripture, probably tons of Pagan references to assorted Fae creatures, and while it may not be intended, it also reminds me of the Halla from the Dragon Age games (which I'm sure BioWare got from Icelandic culture and their belief in Elves of many kinds.) It's just an exceedingly well-designed Pokémon, which, considering some of the questionable designs they've come out with in their lifetime, is a breath of fresh air in a franchise that was starting to turn stale.

25th September 2015, 4:04 AM
I still like Xerneus. The first fairy legendary, a deer, woodsy, beautiful.

25th September 2015, 4:49 AM
I love Yveltal. I thought it was gonna be a Dark/Dragon :c Eh, Even with its Flying typing I still love it. I like its design as well as for what it symbolizes.

Diancie has actually become my second favorite. I really liked its Mega Evolution. I think the movie just made her look better in my eyes, but naw. Do not like the stone under it, I thought it was too big and an eye sore *^* I like its top design and love its little cry.

25th September 2015, 8:29 PM
Yveltal wins this one for me. As soon as I saw him, I wanted Y to be my main version. I've always had a huge fondness of Eagles, and his connection to Norse mythology made me even more interested. The Dark/Flying typing sealed the deal, I am a huge fan of Dark types.

My second favourites are currently a tie between Xerneas and Hoopa (Can't decide which one I like more ATM). Although I like Yveltal more, Xerneas is still mighty impressive and majestic. I love all the colours on it and again the connection to Norse mythology is really interesting. Xerneas is actually my favourite generation 6 Fairy type.
Hoopa is one of those Pokémon I really didn't like at first, but he really grew on me later on. Confined is super adorable and his mischievous antics appeal to me a lot. It is my favourite Ghost type of generation 6. I like Unbound Hoopa quite a bit as well, his monster like appearance is very effective, plus he's a Dark type. But I won't lie, he has one of, if not the creepiest cries in all of Pokémon. Hoopa also has interesting powers and he looks to be inspired by mythology too.

My least favourite generation 6 legend is probably Zygarde. I just find him OK, I'm not super impressed with him, though I do like the connection to Norse mythology. His new forms haven't won me over, 10% in particular looks really out of place.

25th September 2015, 9:59 PM
Xerneas for me. It is a Fairy-type legend which makes it automatically great to my as Fairy is my favorite type. I like how it represents life, it has a really cool signature move and I like its design as well. One of the reasons I started with X over Y and I am very happy about that.

2nd October 2015, 10:40 PM
I like Diancie the best. I'm a fan of its design (especially Mega Diancie's) and love the pretty jewels/crystals it has. Plus, I've used it in battle much more than any of the other Gen 6 legends and raised one to level 100. I grew to like it a lot while training it and trying out its Mega Evolution on my Omega Ruby.

Xerneas is probably my second favourite, mainly because of its design.

9th October 2015, 8:36 PM
Yveltal for me. I picked Y, so of course Yveltal would be the legend that I see. I do like its design, moves and stuff like that. Not much of a fan of the others except for Zygarde's new forms, but those would likely be in a new game as opposed to being DLC for XY or something like that.

10th October 2015, 7:13 PM
I still like Xerneus. The first fairy legendary, a deer, woodsy, beautiful.

Xerneas always reminded me of the "Jade version" mascot tbh. Either way, I don't know if I even like it much since its antlers just seem ridiculously huge, and its gracefulness seems bland to me. At least Yveltal looks fierce and interesting imo.

21st October 2015, 3:10 AM
I really love Diancie, not just for her design, but also for her lore. My big thing with Pokemon is lore an interpretation. I interpret Victini as a "victory no matter the cost" sort of Pokemon, and Diancie as a sort of life-stealing cultist. Maybe that's why I love her so much. But she's such an awesome Pokemon in the actual games too.

Second is Xerneas. Beautiful stag with a rainbow palete and a nature theme? Sign me up!

17th November 2015, 8:39 PM
Xerneas and Diancie, based on design alone. I don't like the others.

17th November 2015, 8:51 PM
My favourite gen 6 legend is definitely Diancie cuz it looks so pretty like a princess and I like its mega forme as well. ^^

17th November 2015, 11:42 PM
Hmm... for some reason I don't really care much for these legends compared to previous gens. Maybe it's because there is only the main trio and a group of event ones. But if I had to choose, it would be Hoopa. I did like how its original form is part Ghost type, and seeing Unbound was really cool. I like how it has multiple arms, and that really reminding me of deities.

Mega Altaria
18th November 2015, 5:40 AM
I have taken quite a preference in Xerneas, along with Zygarde, as well because it's powerful Fairy type and absolutely outclasses Yveltal,, particularly in competitive due to type matchup.

18th November 2015, 8:50 AM
I really like Diance the most. I think she looks so adorable and her mega evolution looks so majestic and pretty.

18th November 2015, 2:35 PM
Actually, Zygarde is growing on me because of his forms. I like the dog, and the perfect form looks pretty cool. Don't like the blobs however.

Skylander Sylveon
20th November 2015, 11:47 AM
I like Yveltal the best because he's cooooool. Zygarde gets on my nerves, Xeaneas is so PRETTY (ugh LOL) and the rest are okay. Diancie reminds me of Lisanna from Fairy Tail for some weird reason lol so I kinda like her.

20th November 2015, 4:08 PM
I don't particularly like any of them : P I've do have trained both Xerneas and Yveltal which is rare for me since I usually never care to train legendary Pokémon. I picked Pokémon X instead of Y because I liked Xerneas more and it is really cool, I like that they made a fantastic deer Pokémon. But I think my favourite is Diancie, it's both cute and elegant and it also has Mega Evolution which is very brilliant design-vise. So I voted for Diancie but I'd say that I like Diancie and Xerneas best. Zygarde is too strange to me : P

22nd November 2015, 1:29 AM
I'll probably say Volcanion. I like how they created an unlikely type combination (Water/Fire) and made it seem more interesting on a legendary.

10th December 2015, 1:14 AM
Xerneas and Diancie. They're Fairies. Need I say more? B)

The Pokemon Broadcast
10th December 2015, 2:13 AM
Now that I've used it more than once (on my first Y play-through and again on Omega Ruby) I kind of like Xerneas a little more now.

10th December 2015, 5:37 AM
Xerneas. It's powerful, a lot. And can destroy Yveltal without any effort.
Love Yveltal for its design.

10th December 2015, 6:19 PM
I'm sort of indifferent to all of them, but I'll have to go with Yveltal purely because its shiny looks like a giant flying strip of bacon.

Alatar VGC
31st December 2015, 12:32 PM
I've got to give this to Yveltal.

It looks amazing in regular and shiny forms. Has nice stats. Epic typing and it really fits the story more then Xerneas. That's IMO of course.

3rd January 2016, 7:45 AM
Shiny Yveltal for it's deliciousness.

3rd January 2016, 11:36 AM
Yvertal & Hoopa Unbound have a very mythical and epic design, that they look scary and majestic at the same time.

4th January 2016, 3:03 AM
I haven't really battled with many megas yet, as I'm trying to fill the Pokedex atm, so I'm not sure which ones are worth having on a team. My favourite based on looks is mega Mawile

4th January 2016, 3:11 AM
Diancie, mostly on the cute factor. Other than that, I'm not overly fond of legendaries in general, especially storyline ones.

17th January 2016, 2:13 AM
Yveltal. It's just so cool looking =)

21st January 2016, 1:26 AM
I played Pokemon Y more solely for the fact that I could get Yveltal. I was not all that impressed with the others. I don't battle competitively so their battle capabilities aren't what I'm looking at ... mostly just their design visually. I never use the legendaries in-game anyway, so really all they do in my games is take up space in a box.

As for the event-only legendaries in this gen I like Volcanion the best. I like the unique typing and I think it looks pretty cool.

21st January 2016, 4:46 AM
My team will definitely have the torchic in it and pancham, chespin, and with the kanto starters im stuck I love charmander but I don't know if I want two fire type so I might go with squirtle the rest will be kalos pokemon (https://sites.google.com/site/unblockedgames4me/pokemon-unblocked) no more oldies

27th January 2016, 5:20 PM
Yveltal. It has the best design imo.

Andrew Shard
14th February 2016, 5:12 PM
Xerneas FTW of couse. It is so majestic :)

20th February 2016, 3:41 PM
Yvetal's design is pretty much perfection in terms of being both mysterious and monsterous-looking.

20th February 2016, 3:48 PM
My favourite would be Diancie. It is so magestic and dazzling. Perfection.

20th February 2016, 10:33 PM
I'd have to say Hoopa since it's half Ghost type which is my favorite Pokemon type, plus it's kind of cute too.

24th February 2016, 8:55 PM
Volcanion. Best type combination ever. And it looks awesome.

Zygarde was my favorite but Squishy ruined it

28th February 2016, 11:53 AM
Xerneas and Diancie are two I love the most - mainly since I really love Fairies (exception of 1 evolution line)! I'll give my love a bit more to Xerneas

fire fan 888
28th February 2016, 8:02 PM
xerneas. For one thing, its a fairy type. Also, its just majestic, which hasnt been the norm for legendaries lately. Most legendaries have been tough or adorable, but xerneas is simply majestic

29th February 2016, 2:22 AM
I don't dislike any of these six pokemon really, but my favorite has to be Yveltal. I love it's design, typing, signature move, number (7/17 is my birthday), and story. Thinking about it, it's probably my third favorite pokemon. Volcanion is a close second with its cool typing, and I can't wait to see more of it with the next movie.

29th February 2016, 7:34 AM
I think that Xerneas is my favourite legendary pokémon of XY because I like its design, it looks as a really mythical creature :)

1st April 2016, 4:40 AM
I only really dislike Hoopa. But My favorites are Yveltal and Xerneas

1st April 2016, 5:35 PM
My favorite Kalos legendary is Xerneas. I think it's the most beautiful of all of them and I like the fairy type.

The Living Daylights
26th April 2016, 5:24 AM
Yveltal's my favorite for aesthetic design. Zygarde, weird as it is, comes next. Xerneas is also pretty good. The rest of them are mediocre to me. Not a fan of Hoopa.

5th May 2016, 11:31 PM
Yveltal is for me my favourite of Kalos, I like his design and is an awesome legendary who despiste looking evil is not an evil being itself.

10th May 2016, 10:43 PM
yveltal is my favourite, they just look cool and unique. Followed by lugia, ho-oh, articuno, moltres, and zapdos. I love all the bird type pokemon!

10th May 2016, 11:23 PM
I would have to say either Xerneas or Volcanion.

Xerneas is so good in doubles plus it is a nice fairy legendary to keep all those dragon legendaries (and dark) in check plus I think the design is cool.

Volcanion because of his excellent typing and immune to water attacks and also because they made him very special how they released him. The only official even I saw of his was the pokemon movie in Japan and that is the only one we are getting this generation, so very tough to obtain early on until the cloners get ahold of him in other regions.

13th June 2016, 2:34 PM
Zygrade, i only wish it could be in it's complete form
then comes yvetal-that bird deserves the title of destruction pokemon its powerful and danger looking.

14th June 2016, 1:57 AM

Xerneas - Even though it's all over Battle Spot (and it's annoying me), my love for it never wears thin.
Yveltal - Great design and I love the menacing look. Really lives up to its typing. :p


Volcanion - Steam Eruption is bae af. I have no problem using it against any type, tbh.
Zygarde - Show our ground serpent some love. <3


Diancie - Cute, but I don't like it that much.
Hoopa - I prefer its giant form.

24th June 2016, 2:06 AM
I think I'm gonna have to go with Yveltal. The other legends don't really look all that appealing. Yveltal just has a cool typing and an interesting design.

6th July 2016, 2:42 PM
I guess mine is Yveltal, because it looks good in my opinion.

6th July 2016, 2:57 PM
Hoopa comes first, he's SO cute while also having that big form. Just perfect. Also summon shiny legendaries? Yes please!
Diancie and Zygarde come next, I can just imagine Diancie jumping up and shouting "DIAMOND STORM!!!" and diamonds shoot down :P or at least I switch they'd make that scene happen..
and Zygarde due to same reasons as everyone else, he has amazingly awesome forms.

26th August 2016, 12:26 AM
Xerneas, even though I own Y... I was iffy about both of them at first, but getting the level 100 shiny event Xerneas this year has given me a chance to see it up close, and even though I haven't used it in battle, I realize that it reminds me a lot of the Great Forest Spirit from "Princess Mononoke" (which, ironically enough, kind of possesses the power of both Xerneas and Yvyltel, able to both give and take life!).

26th August 2016, 2:57 PM
Diancie is the only one I've used out of the 6, making it a team member in Alpha Sapphire. I was so hyped for its Mega Evolution because it looked so pretty, and I had to have it. I really wanted to use it. Plus, Diancie's design by itself was pretty.

I guess if i had to choose 2nd place, I guess Xerneas. It's pretty, and its design was the reason I bought my first Pokemon game.

30th August 2016, 2:34 AM
Yveltal, i reeaaally like the move Oblivion Wing!

30th August 2016, 10:12 PM
Zygarde is plain awesome. I like the dog form.

31st August 2016, 10:38 AM
Zygarde, I've liked it since the moment I saw it. Its also a Dragon which makes me like it even more.

31st August 2016, 2:16 PM
It used to be Yveltal until Zygarde's alternative forms were revealed last year.

Celestial Moth
1st September 2016, 5:26 AM
Xerneas all the way. Apart from the mystical appeal of a magical deer, Xerneas's design is amazing.

8th September 2016, 5:22 AM
Yveltal, mostly due to its Y-shape and death/destruction theme. I like that Gamefreak made Yveltal sinister, which was a step up from most Legendaries.

Rayquaza prime
7th October 2016, 9:24 PM
For me its Yveltal because its a great dark/flying type and I like the move oblivion wing

8th October 2016, 3:47 AM
My favorite Kalos legendary is pretty much Xerneas. Yveltal aims for a cool, sinister look, and while that's neat, I like that Xerneas offered a sort of refreshing, life-based theme to it. It was the main reason I got X instead of Y. I don't have much to say on Xerneas' competitive use, but it's nice to see a legendary that I like be used fairly prominently.

My second favorite is probably Zygarde, but I'll be the odd one out and say that Zygarde was always my second-favorite even before we saw its other forms. If I looked at all its forms (instead of just its 50% Forme), Zygarde would become my least-favorite Kalos legendary. I don't like the other forms that much, to be honest. The cells and cores are okay, though.

11th October 2016, 4:15 AM
Yveltal because his design compliments the power he embodies really well. Also, that power that he embodies doesn't stop at only destruction (there are a decent amount of legendary that could fit that description) but death itself. He literally feeds off the life force of others. Xerneas would be second because its design is amazing and beautiful and the "life and death" pair that those 2 make is just so raw is nature. Kinda surprised that it took so long for a life and death pair to appear

11th October 2016, 4:58 AM
its so elegant and graceful i just love it so so much
I remeber the first time I saw it I could practcaly feel its grace and power.

12th October 2016, 11:25 PM
Xerneas was the reason I made x my main game, so therefore I'm going to pick Xerneas.

21st October 2016, 8:54 PM
My favourite legend is definitely Xerneas... it's so beauty! And in the passiv form it is an tree...thats so nice! *-*

22nd October 2016, 3:27 PM
My favourite legendary is Xerneas.

Conquering Storm
25th October 2016, 3:04 PM
I really like Xerneas and Diancie. They both have such amazing designs. (Ironically enough, Diancie is the only Pokémon I haven't registered as caught in my Alpha Sapphire NatDex.)

25th October 2016, 3:20 PM

I was amazed by its design since I first saw it.

26th November 2016, 3:58 AM
As of now, probably Xerneas

26th November 2016, 8:57 AM
It's Xerneas for me, given that it's the first Fairy Type Legendary Pokemon and has an awesome design.. Yveltal come close in the 2nd though, and i also interested to how Zygarde 100% form capable to do in the next generation game..

6th December 2016, 4:13 PM
My favorite XY legendary is Yveltal. I really like its design and typing. Xerneas comes to a close second.

9th January 2017, 3:55 PM
I like Xerneas for its design, maybe Mega Diancie as well. Kinda disappointed with the rest of the legendaries.

10th January 2017, 10:30 AM
I voted Yveltal. Kinda wish I voted for Xerneas now. Soo majectic.

10th January 2017, 10:33 AM
As usual my choices are purely off design.
Out of the Legendaries, I think I like them both the same, but in different ways. I like Xerneas because it looks so graceful (I like the colourful antlers), and Yveltal looks cool as well, and it has good typing. Not keen on Zygarde or any of its Formes, though. Just looks like green and black gloop, like something from Ben 10.

But since the Mythical ones are included as well, my vote definitely goes to Diancie, because I think it's so pretty, especially its Mega form.
I like how Hoopa's Confined design looks silly and cute, but its Unbound form doesn't sit right with me at all. The elf-like feet and floating hands look out of place. Volcanion just looks strange.

10th January 2017, 2:20 PM

Xerneas and Yveltal equally. I like their designs and the fact that Xerneas is a fairy type. I voted for Xerneas in the poll though.

Emperor Empoleon
25th February 2017, 4:03 AM
I love Zygarde for its mythology, form changes, and positively ludicrous stamina <3 I only wish that the games had explored its presence in the Kalos Region more.

Earth Wolf-Howl
25th February 2017, 10:19 AM
Yveltal because Dark-types and its cry is awesome. Its design is pretty great too, though. It was actually kind of difficult choosing between the two when the games were announced, actually, and even now, but hey. I have to go with the bird.

20th March 2017, 8:03 PM
Eh, Hoopa I guess. I feel like it's a good mix of cuteness and trickster, though I dislike its OR/AS form change since it looks stupid IMO.

10th April 2017, 8:15 PM
...Diance. :P

Its cute and pink. Two things I LIVE FOR.

Cat's Eye Draco
18th April 2017, 6:41 PM
Xerneas for me. I really like its design and all the myths it references.

19th April 2017, 10:29 PM
Xerneas is my favorite, it's so elegant. I also like Volcanion cuz I'm happy there's a fire water type.

20th April 2017, 3:30 PM
Yveltal- hands down. Type, attacks, model, animations, it's just an awesome Pokémon.

23rd April 2017, 3:46 PM
Xerneas is my favorite

Ninja Bulbasaur
25th April 2017, 7:27 AM
Diance is so cute, and the movie sealed the deal for me. She's literally a crystal gem magical girl princess, what is there not to like?

28th April 2017, 1:19 AM
My favorite legendary and favorite Pokemon all around is Articuno I think it just have a great design along with the fact that I've always thought of Ice as a superior element in any sort of game. source : taihinhnendepnhat.net (https://taihinhnendepnhat.net/)

When it comes to the Legendary Pokemon that were introduced in X and Y, my number one favorite happens to be Xerneas.

Brave Saix
9th May 2017, 12:52 AM
Can I vote for Zapdos? I felt kind of meh about this generations new legends and the event exclusives haven't excited me since Deoxys. I do wish they had made a new minor trio for the generation. Heck they could have even took the musketeers for this Gen and it would have made since.

10th May 2017, 5:35 AM
Lugia would have to be mine

14th May 2017, 6:40 PM
My favourite legendary was Zygarde, whilst it didn't necessarily do much in X and Y I liked the design and the theme behind it enough and it's new Sun and Moon forms are definitely pretty cool! It hits fairly hard, was really bulky and I like it. Yveltal was cool too, always preferred Y to X. Xerneas was alright but not my thing, and the rest I'm not too sure about.

22nd May 2017, 12:04 AM
The movie in which Diancie is featured made me LOVE Diancie, and even more when Mega Diancie came on the scene.

23rd July 2017, 10:55 PM
I'd pick Zygarde only because out of the six Kalos Legends, it seemed to be the most mysterious.

30th July 2017, 11:04 PM
Xerneas. Its what initially drew me to x over y. Its lore, design, its mono fairy typing, geomancy... Its def a keeper! Caught a modest one in a luxury ball in two attemps during my play through!

I wanna feed it a carrot

27th September 2017, 11:10 PM
Ever since watching the last XY era movie, Volcanion has become my favorite Kalos Legendary even though in an ironic twist of fate, I don't own one in my games. :(

He sounds eerily familiar to a certain Ent in Lord of the Rings

18th October 2017, 4:23 AM
Technically speaking there are only three legendaries in XY because of the difference between legendary and mythical. Though if I have to choose on of each, I'd say Yveltal and Hoopa

Xerneas is elegant, but too girly for a box cover Legendary. I wish it looked different and more gender neutral.

5th February 2018, 6:24 AM

I personally count Mythical Pokemon as a sub-category of Legendary Pokemon, and I've seen many fans who follow that logic as well. I was always peeved regarding X/Y's lack of Gen VI Legendaries, however. Only being able to find two per game (Xerneas or Yveltal, and then Zygarde) seemed unbalanced.

6th February 2018, 12:44 AM
Xerneas! I love deer pokemon and Xerneas looks so majestic and beautiful, I also love it's fairy typing along with the legend behind it. X's box cover art immediately drew my eye, it was just all around perfect for me.
