    Considering that Yveltal could be representative of a Wyvern (which usually means it has anatomy of a Dragon head, reptilian body, two legs etc.), the outlook is not looking bright for Yveltal not getting dragon typing.

    And I hope it's not Dark type just because of the way it looks...Remember the last time we tried guessing legendary typings based on the way it looks, yeeaahh.

    Wow. These are actually pretty cool names. They're so fun to say.

    Imagine, we now have Pokemon named "Zer-nay-as" and "Ee-Vel-Ta."

    In comparison, all I can come up with is "Psycho" and "Steelkat."

    This is so far the first thing I like about Pokemon X & Y.

    I think the names confirm that they are loosely Scandinavian.

    Yveltal does look Flying, but I think they could pull a Dragon on us, too. I know there's been a lot of Dragon legendaries lately, but I personally wouldn't mind, as long as Xerneas doesn't end up Dragon as well (which I think is unlikely). And you're right, Xerneas looks like it could potentially be Steel, but really, there are so many types that could fit it.

    I like Xerneas though. (ZURR-nee-us) it sounds very nice, and it's much easier to pronounce.
    I keep saying it eviltall as well and it works well with me because in arabic we don't say "Eiffel" we say "Effel" so i feel it has
    A connection to France even though it probably doesn't. but the thought of it is cool so...

    Maybe they're thinking about a trading evolution for the legendaries... much like Accelgor and Escavalier in V Gen... It would fit the trading core, and the genetics theory as well (putting the genetics for man DNA in the game, XY).

    But i'm betting in the Z pokemon as well, like a pokemon special gen for DNA.

    I'm a little iffy on the dragon typing. I mean, we had so many, and he remembers me more of a Vulture/Eagle than he reminds me of an actual Dragon. Even tough I wouldn't really mind too much the dragon type, I would really prefer if they went with the flying route for him. It would make more sense with the design, and the possible Norse mythology roots that he has.

    I'm definitely getting X because its legendary's name is easier to pronounce.

    I understand how to pronounce it, it's just that there are certain sounds in words that I have a lot a trouble making due to a speech problem. I literally can't say it correctly without struggling to get the sounds out.

    Loving these legendaries so far, especially Xerneas. It'll be good to not have dragon mascot legendaries this time, otherwise it'd just get old like Fire/Fighting starters. That is assuming they're not part dragon (they don't look it, but then again, it could happen).

    I quite like the idea of Fire/Flying, Grass/Steel, and Water/Rock, giving all of them one x4 weakness to another of the trio. o:

    Yeah, I'd like the Flying typing myself, especially considering we haven't had a Flying mascot legendary since Rayquaza. I'm just saying that anything is possible. :P

    That and if there is a "Z" pokemon (Zynex would be a funny name for it) then it would create the axis relation (X,Y and Z axis) which creates a 3D effect. STEALTH PUN!

    Thank you based Turpoo

    They might be Norse, but I don't find the names to be very norse sounding. Especially since we in Norway don't use the letter X except for the case from words we've borrowed from other countries. But it may sound different to english-speaking people, thus having that weird pronunciation. Still, I like the idea of them being based on Norse mythology. I hope that brings us elf and dwarf legendaries as well! And perhaps a dark type legend based on the Fenrir wolf.

    Yeah. We have to be prepared for anything. GameFreak has made surprising us a habit, after all. And yeah, I mean the flying type legendaries. Yveltal would be a high and mighty return for them, too!

    The only thing I ask about typing is that neither Xerneas nor Yveltal is Dragon-type. Dragon mascots got tired a long time ago.

    I do like the names. Yveltal sounds very Skyrim/LotR to me lol.

    Also I saw this on Tumblr, now I don't know poo about biology so I don't know if it makes sense or not:

    For all we know, these "Legendaries" may not be Legendary at all, they may just simply be the version mascots.

    I can't help but laugh at the idea of a pokemon based on the urinary system. I'm dine with living balloons, trash bags and magnets, but I draw the line there.

    Gen 1 was the only gen to not make the "mascot Pokémon" a legendary. Since then, it's been a tradition making cover pokémon legendaries. Taking in account these Pokémon appearences and the way they were portrayed in the trailer, it's hard to doubt that they are going to be legendaries.
