i think Xerneas and Yveltal are definitely based off of Norse MYthology. Xerneas is based off of the four stags surrounding the tree of life, also each of the stags is said to have four different colored gemstones in their horns, the colors are blue, purple, red, and gold, the exact same colors that Xerneas has in his horns.
then Yveltal is based off of the blind eagle at the top of Yggdrasil, also yveltal has blue tinted eyes hinting at the blindness of the eagle.
then everyone thinks there will be a Z pokemon, well in norse mythology there is also a serpentine creature, the serpentine dragon Niohoggr, he is lying under the roots of the tree of life. and a serpent is the only creature really able to make a real Z shape. and also if there was a legendary pokemon based off of Niohoggr it would be the first Dragon/poison type
I've seen an image with the theory that xerneas and Yvaltle are based on the deer and bird of the tree of Yydrassil. Which also could tell use the 3rd member of the trio is a squirrel, and because of the shape of the tail, it makes sense for a squirrel to be the Z pokemon of the XYZ Axis theme trio
....squirrel.... legendary............. I hope that doesn't happen ;_;
I'm pretty sure there isn't going to be pokemon z, because x and y are DNA-related letters. The whole game's story and even the logo & the new pokewatches are based on DNA, so I don't see how z can possibly fit into this.
Given that the Japanese logos clearly have DNA helixes in them, I think it's safe to say that they were going for genetics. Not coordinates.
I guess a pokemon z's not unlikely, but I think they'll just make Pokemon x 2 and Y 2, like how they did with black&white. And I think the DNA theme is really there in the game.
1) mewtwo form and new eevee were one of the 5th gen pokemons first introduced. Both pokemon are closely related to genetic/DNA mutation 2) In the official main characters art, if you zoom in on the male player's watch, you can see a tiny scroll of DNA. 3) In the pokemon x&y logo there is a DNA 4) X and Y are the letters for chromosomes
I wonder about the mythology these two have. according to one guy they're symblolic of the x and y chromozones. based on that, I think these two played some part in creation along with mew. just a theory
I've heard that Yveltal is based on a new sound type and Xerneas is based on new light type which will be in the game to be honest when I first saw them I based them off the x and y chromosomes which are found in every living species
Ya know of all the animals Pokemon hasnt made yet, they havent made a Cockroach pokemon. I dont know why, Cockroach would make a good Poison, or Ghost, or maybe even Dark Type pokemon. i noticed this after seeing the pokedex of all existing pokemon.
oh okay so i have said it right, still calling him Yverne, it sounds better and works well, ii mean how do we really know there names ar Xerneas and Yvetal? to mean it looks more Wyvern-ish then others.
Damn it XD I have no money, just idea's and designning a site that makes FB,Google,and msot websites online obselete. XD well my english fwellow, dman it. still one day when i get money i will commission you ^^
Definitely some of the most interesting legendaries I've seen in awhile. Sure, Black Kyurem and White Kyurem were interesting, but now I'm like "meh, we have too many dragons." These better be good, that's all I can say.
