    It was proven false upon hacking BW (where the shiny lock was found). I can't believe some of the people on this forum still think that myth is true lol. It would be a shame if someone decided to SR for shiny Dragons without realizing it.

    So, if Xerneas stands for life and Yveltal for destruction, what could a third legendary pokemon stand for?
    Sorry if my English isn't good. I'm Dutch.

    Zombies, I'm guessing.

    Personally, I think Xerneas and Yveltal are going to be the XY duo rather than a trio (like Ho-Oh and Lugia). Unless GF is going for third legendary, in which case, it seems like the 3rd legendary might focus on balance, much like Rayquaza did in the Groudon vs. Kyogre mythology.

    Some sort of middle lining between them. I banked on Xerneas and Yveltal being the Preservation and Ruin Pokemon respectively but I didn't go as far as to say Life and Death/Destruction (I just didn;t think GF to go that far with it tbh).

    I'd like to think perhaps Preservation or Ruin might be used for the 3rd but neither sound like a balance between Life and Destruction.

    Maybe they won't make a 3rd one specifically.

    Perhaps the third one is nothing, like, preservation is doing something to keep it in good state, while ruin is doing something to dunk it n bad state, doing nothing will not affect it, and perhaps neutralize the two?

    So basically the 'Look at all the f**** I give' Pokemon?

    I'm down for that

    Yup.

    Maybe something that controls everything that has been destroyed/has died?
    Xerneas gives life, Yveltal takes it away and the third looks after all the things that have been destroyed.

    Like, maybe its dimension is where everything destroyed in the world goes to.

    Yeah, I don't know.. Just thinking of it as life, death and then the afterlife.

    I personally think "Z" will be immortality or rebirth, both go along well with the possible DNA theme and serve as a good balancing element for Life and Destruction.

    But we already got that with Kyurem. Reshiram and Zekrom were yin and yang, with Kyurem representing Wuji, the absense of yin & yang, the void.

    I'd rather these to just be a duo instead of apart of a another trio.

    If they turn out to be a trio, I'd say a logical third would be a continuum Pokemon, something that represents the endless cycle that connects life and death together - an Oroborus would be a candidate to represent it.

    Well, that's still a trio, but different. Kyogre and Groudon both represent sea and land (biblical Leviathan and Behemoth), while Rayquaza represented sky (biblical Ziz), not necessarily emptiness.

    Kyurem does represent emptiness, though. Ice-typing as absence of heat/energy, cry that is just dead static...

    Yep, and also (as I mentioned before) the Ouroboros also can represent rebirth and immortality, which fits in perfectly with the theme of life and destruction.

    Yeah, Xerneas is life, Yveltal is death, so the Z legend will have have to be an absence of those two concepts.

    I think Xerneas and Yveltal will just get a shade change in their colour schemes, not really changed to purple or lavender, (hopefully)

    That does make sense because in the Norse myth of the Yggdrasil tree there was a Wyvern (Yveltal), a deer (Xerneas) and a snake.

    Well, Kyurem is what Reshiram and Zekrom first split from, so technically, it is the same as any other Pokémon and is subject to the usual rules. Reshiram and Zekrom are, by nature, unique instances in that they are opposing aspects of a single Pokémon made manifest.

    The Norse myth doesn't involve a wyvern, and Yveltal isn't one anyway. The myth mentions an eagle, and Yveltal is a large bird of prey (like a condor or, fittingly, an eagle). Wyverns tend to have more dragon- and bat-like elements (see Noivern, for instance).

    Also, Nidhogg is more of a dragon than it is a snake.
