Now we ought to get back on topic of legendaries
Doors anyone else think that we will get the messenger squrriel from yggdrasil
Since the yggdrasil theory fits so well with it all
Maybe we just are looking into things too much since we don't have much to speculate about...

It's time to return to the old, soaring back to Hoenn!
I hope Xerneas isn't just like "Hiz gyz! Iz haf Glowzies in mi Hornnz!"
I want the lights to be at least relevant to type.
I wonder what Powers Xerneas and Yvetal will have in-game.
Ho-oh/Lugia: Resurrection (Ho-oh) and Storm/Death (Lugia) seriously, storms cause death :P
Kyogre/Groudon/Rayqauza: Weather (All Three) Sea (Kyogre) Earth (Groudon) Air (*Presumed (Rayquaza)
Dialga/Palkia/Giratina: Time (Dialga) Space (Palkia) Anti-Matter (Giratina)
Reshiram/Zekrom/Kyurem: Ideals (Reshiram/Possibly White Kyurem) Truth (Zekrom/Possibly Black Kyurem) Kyurem could be Hopes or Dreams, as: 'This legendary ice Pokémon waits for a hero to fill in the missing parts of its body with truth or ideals.' Could mean it hopes/dreams for it.
Xerneas/Yvetal: Axis? Body? (Yvetal) and Mind? (Xerneas)
come hear littleBoys? (Yvetal) Girls? (Xerneas)
Maybe we can create a widely-recognized Pokemon religion around the time Pokemon X/Y gets out.

I'd still rather the cover trio to be based off of Yggdrasil over Celtic mythology. There's so much potential in it and it already seems like it's heading there. Xerneas embodies the four stags in its antlers. Yveltal is based on the eagle that doesn't have much going for it, so it can create its own persona. Z is the serpent that gnaws on the roots of the tree.
Xerneas has a lot of potential typings. In the mythos, it's constantly mentioned that it's eating leaves raised above it, so it could be grass. Ice, Psychic and Steel are all possible as well. Light would be nice to pair it with to contrast Yveltal. Yveltal would obviously be Dark/Flying. As for Z, it mentions in the various poems about it that it's "venomous" and a "shadowy dragon flying," so there's like 4 types there, but Dragon/Poison would be prime.
Anyway, I want the trio to be based off of Gargoyle statues really badly. The 'leader' would be a grey statue with glowing white eyes. No specifics on the appearance, but it looks like a sinister demon. The second would be the 'modern' gargoyle, blue and made of steel with glowing blue eyes. The last would be the weathered gargoyle. It's purple and has red glowing eyes, and over time it has fallen apart and it's only being held together with supernatural energy.

I like to see a legendary Pokemon... wait for it... that's also your rival/double battle partner/random ally.
Think about it, legendary Pokes are shown to take human form all the time, at least in the anime (Latias, off the top of my head), so I think it'd be really cool to have one show up, follow you around, help you take down the local evil team, and then near the end of the game, decide that you're worthy of training him/her/it.
Could be that it just automatically adds itself to your party/PC box. Could be that it's the league champion, and after defeating its friends, it reveals itself, sort of like how you get Reshiram/Zekrom when fighting N in Black/White.
I'd like a legendary trio based off of Scottish Loch monsters.
(Yes, I know Lapras exists, but Golem was a Golem but didn't stop the Regi Golems popping up!)
The names are the creatures names, not the Pokemon names
Female-Exclusive (Y exclusive)
Water-Type (Being pure means two things-One, it parallels Tornadus, Two, not much is known about it compared to the others.)
Loch Ness Monster
Leader of The Loch Trio (Requires the other two to obtain)
Ability: Sheer Force/Swift Swim
Kind of a pseadou-counterparts to the
sausage festMale-Exclusive Kami Trio, but without formes.
Morag-Dark/Water Type: It's believed to be dangerous/evil!
Loch Ness Monster-Dragon/Water Type: It's a dinosaur. It's the leader. Dragon is powerful. I suck at explaining things.

Back to seriousness... Xerneas's name alone is honestly a cornerstone of my theory, the parallel between it and Cernununous is too obvious to ignore. As far as I know, the Norse had no horned god, and the worship of the Green Man was not celebrated as far north and east as the Norse were. I'm not just going to copypaste my post from the last page, but based on what I said there, there's far more evidence linking Xerneas and Yvetal to the Dagda and the Morrigan than there is to the stags and eagle of Yggdrasil.
And finally, Niddhogr. What part of the Eddas are you referencing? To the best of my recollection, Niddhogr is either a wyrm or a large snake, meaning it's landlocked and has no wings. It gnaws on the roots of the tree because it cannot climb it, or surmount it in any way. Flying isn't really an option for it (again, as near as I can recall).
That does sound very cool, and very Parisian. I'd probably have to nickname them after the gargoyles from Hunchback.Anyway, I want the trio to be based off of Gargoyle statues really badly. The 'leader' would be a grey statue with glowing white eyes. No specifics on the appearance, but it looks like a sinister demon.

Perhaps it's a corruption of both? The region is set in Europe (France at the least), and both these myths are European. I wouldn't mind. Scotland area likely if it's Celtic myths. Let's not forget that both mythologies were worshiped at some point there, due to the vikings attacks on Britain, though Scotland was closer. I think I'm being sub-consciously being biased due to being born and living here. What I'm interested in is the areas where we find Xerneas/Yvetal. Maybe Xerneas in a Scottish Forest area (Due to the Green Man! Aswell as Xerneas being Blue and having 'X's on it :P) and Yvetal in a Scandinavian mountain?
Thanks for liking my idea lol!
Stats for ma Legends!
Morag and Muc-Sheilche:
BST: 580 (Same as Tornadus/Thunderus)
Nessie/Loch Ness Monster
BST: 600 (Same as Landorus)
Basically Nessie would be Tank Palkia!

The Horned God and the Morrigan are Celtic, yes, but that doesn't mean they are strictly ancient gods from across the Channel. They have their roots in France just as much as they do in Ireland.

I like the look of Yveltal. I honestly don't know what types I think it could be, so I'm not not even going to guess. XD
Though it does look like a tuning fork, so there's that.
