    I can see the connection of the Deer and the XX (female) chromosome really.
    You could just have said those Valkyriur. Close enough

    have you though that this time it doesn't have to be a mith of DESTRUCTION AND CAOS? I think the gender aspect would be cool, really cool! X & Y (female & male) it doesn't have to be VS...

    My typing guess: X - Normal; Y - Fire/Poison.
    X looks like it could be any of around 15 type combinations. That's why I think it will be Normal.
    Fire/Poison would be an rare type combination and the legendaries tend to have them unless they are monotyped. I think it fits Y's design.

    Well that was a big stretch. You could just as easily find some male god somewhere represented as a deer.

    My guess is that X is grass/dragon and Y is psychic(or dark)/dragon, just going on past legendaries whose types have not quite suited their looks(zekrom, reshiram, palkia) and also the running theme of (interesting type)/dragon cover legends. And I hazard a wild guess at a (ground or rock)/dragon as hypothetical Z, if the rest of my guesswork is close. If not i have no clue but i am incredibly excited either way. I love everything I've seen of this gen so far more than any other.
    I can help with RNG for gen 4 & 5

    I was thinking about the legendaries, the chromosome thing, and the norse mythology, and it ocurred to me. Story wise, this game has a lot of potential. The legendaries look more like Deities than previous ones (X has an Arceus vibe to him, even), and given the possibility of the Yggdrasil mythos, this could really step up in terms of story. I said before that revolving the story around Ragnarok would be cool, but revolving it around creation and life itself would be just as cool, and would fit with the Yggdrasil mythos AND the chromosome theme. Was thinking something along the lines of, instead of trying to use the legendaries themselves, the evil team is trying to manipulate life using the Yggdrasil, and the legendaries, being guardians, would join you to beat the team and protect Yggdrasil. I'd love to see that!

    It's not that big of a stretch. I had Greek Mythology in school, I thought of it when I saw the deer and I found out about the chromosome thing. If you know Greek mythology you know it's not that big of a stretch.

    That's what I'm saying, arbitrarily relating it to Greek Mythology is a stretch.

    Where are people coming up with /Dragon for either of the mascots? Neither of them look reptilian in the slightest. Y is allowed to fly without being a dragon.

    I think thats a bit too coincedental O_o
    I dont see them being related, just with the "sword legs" x is pointy looking so thats why I think the deer has those legs instead of normal ones, same how the bird had the wings and tail at the Y length.
    Even so the Musketeers swords done look like real swords, just overgrown horns imo

    People just think that Legendary Pokemon must be dragons. I think we need a change of pace. Gen 4 and 5 both used dragons, lets move on.

    Probably.

    You know the more I roll it around in my head, the more epic I find Mascot Y.

    Mascot X, is pretty neat, it has this space, rainbow, awesome aspect to it, and it's quadruped animal, like a deer or something. But I can't help but think Mascot Y is far more epic in terms of appearance, and badassery. This thing is a giant red bird creature, could easily be considered a bird themed dragon. And it looks like something you really don't want to mess with. This thing seemingly rivals Rayquaza as king of the sky, though Rayquaza is more of a guardian of Earth type situation.

    Mascot Y, is something I'd see in Zelda, dwarfing even the Helmaroc King.

    As for types:

    I think Mascot X is going to be part psychic maybe steel to really give it that futuristic look it has.

    Mascot Y- I don't know if it'll be part flying but it would make sense, but I definitely see it having a dark type. Maybe even Dragon. Such as Dark/Dragon. I really think however the Deer won't be part Dragon, just doesn't seem likely to me. But I do want something different.

    This of course assuming that they don't have brand new types because Mascot X and Mascot Y, seemingly have this emanation that they do possess types that we don't even know about.
    Misinterpreting my posts is not your fault, negative repping me, and getting very sensitive about my posts because you misinterpreted my posts however is your fault. Think really hard, before negative repping or making a big deal about my posts. I don't appreciate being negative repped for reasons that are a result of misinterpreting my posts.

    I like how the bird definitely resembles the 'Y'. The two front legs on the other can be made out to resemble the other part of 'X'(based on the fact those are the first parts of its body we saw). Overall I can't wait to see the other legends, the game will be AWESOME!!!

    I think X looks too much like this, but it sure fits the DNA theme... Y is so cool and weird, but I think I like X better. I also noticed that these guys look like fusions. Y looks like a Mandibuzz, Terrakion, Braviary and Archeops fused, and X looks like Dialga, Kingdra, Sawsbuck and Zebstrika fused. I also came up with nicknames for them: Xelk (elk) and Ygle (eagle).

    They haven't added any types since Gen 2, there's no need for doing so. What we've got now is balanced, adding more types would just create chaos. Dark and Steel were added in specifically to balance the original types *cough*Psychic*cough*.

    It would be interesting to have a poison legendary finally, though not my preferred type it could be a great addition to the new Gens teams.

    As far as typing goes "Y" looks overwhelmingly part Flying type, if it were to have a second typing id go with dark or fire mostly due to its color. And for "X" id say psychic and poison, the reason poison comes to mind to me is beacause of the sort of shine or rainbow light that seems to luminate off of its "antlers". Its almost hypnotic and seems to pull in my attention which is what some wild plants that are venomous tend to do or venomous animals use as a way to attract prey.
