Pokemon X & Y Legendary Names Revealed: Xerneas and Yveltal

The official Pokemon website has been updated this morning, revealing the names of the two legendary Pokemon revealed in the trailer for Pokemon X and Pokemon Y. The blue one is named Xerneas (ZURR-nee-us) while the red one is named Yveltal (ee-VELL-tall). These names are confirmed for international languages as well.

As if it weren't already obvious before this reveal, the names help confirm that Xerneas is most likely the legendary Pokemon for Pokemon X, while Yveltal is most likely the legendary Pokemon for Pokemon Y.

    Those legendaries are seriously a beautiful piece of work. Look how shiny! :p

    Man, people really like Xerneas. Yveltal isn't acquiring any fans at all. But I tell you, I'll choose Y only for Yveltal. He looks a lot cooler than Xerneas (for me).

    Marriland are you going to get both x and y

    I'd love to see for the Title Screen, when you press Start (or whatever) for Y Version, Yveltal stops & goes into that Y pose thingy & flies off, & for X Version Xerneas would stop, probably go into an X pose or look at you, then run off. For the title screen animations themselves it would probably be almost like the HGSS thingy, except with Yveltal flying & Xerneas running through a forest, possibly moving about here & there (and with them blinking, unlike Lugia & Ho-Oh not blinking at all in the Title Screen). I don't thing they'll do the same thing as Gen V with the Legendary just standing there.

    I personally love Yveltal. He looks amazing. I would get Y version because he looks beast. I don't know why, I have this thing with Flying Legendaries (I mean Legendaries that can fly). However Xerneas does look amazing as well.

    I also hope there is Character customisation & (hopefully) real weather conditions (not being like one step into a route / city & the weather changes, step back & the weather changes again, I hate that, reminds me of Routes 210 & 215)

    I'm a fan bro! Obviously, they both look awesome, but I've always been a fan of the beefier-looking legendary's . (Zapdos, Mewtwo, Lugia, Latios, Groudon, Zekrom, etc. Just to name a few.) I feel so behind! I haven't had the financial capabilities just moving 4 states over and all to invest in a 3DSxl like I want and W/B, W2/B/2. My friend got white so I guess i'll sacrifice my liking for Zekrom and get Black. The new games look awesome. As for the starters, very cool, I especially am liking the throwback/modern vulpix vibe I get from the fire starter. Crossing my fingers hoping the water starter get's a secondary type...maybe ice...or something. Anyways, I got a lot of catching up to do, and Marriland (Devin), congrats on the new site, I loved your old one, but i'm glad you got to affiliate with Curse.com. They're a great resource.

    They will most likely string us along for a few months like they always do, but knowing the types of the legendaries would be nice. Gotta definately get a 3DS/XL now lol. Before it was just a nice investment, just in case, but now it is essential. 

    I personally think, like in R/S/E  they'll won't be dragon type legendaries. I have this weird feeling that Xerneas will be steel/something and the only thing I get from Yveltal is fire. But that is so obvious it makes me feel wrong lol.

    **Edit - I know Rayquaza was dragon, but the first two weren't. Just thought of that. Maybe Z will be?

    Why? You think it will be worse than the 2D versions? I think you need to give GAMEFREAK some credit here. They're gonna do it justice, they make way too much money off the series to screw this up. I think it looks great, personally.

  • #48 18helios

    I CAN'T SEE 3D

  • #49 Shhmew

    You shouldn't say you hate it because you haven't played it yet.

    Personally I don't like 3D either, but there's an option to turn off the 3Dness on a 3DS if it really irks you that much.

  • #50 18helios

    I DONT HAVE 3DS OR DS OR GAMEBOY. I'M USING EMULATORS. AND I CANT SEE 3D STAF

     

  • #51 Shhmew

    You really aren't supposed to talk about emulators on here, as they are illegal. Just go out and buy the system, and if you can't afford it, that's tough. Save up.

    And then, like I said, you can turn off the 3Dness.

    And please, stop talking in caps. It hurts my brain.

    Humph, I burnt my egg in a basket to tell you this stuff. ;-; So please take it seriously and post a little more responsibly next time.

    That's unfortunate. Well, you've adapted thus far, I believe you'll be okay.

    Amazon.com brother. You can buy the 3DS, and the new games on Amazon. (Once they come out in October, of course.) If you can visit this site, you can surely visit Amazon.

    Start saving? I don't have a lot of money. I don't have a 3DS, much less a DS or the black/white B2/W2 games. I'm saving money for them right now. I understand it may be hard, but you have to try, at least. Being angry about it won't help you get what you want.
