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.

    sorry I'm angry

    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.

    I do not have so much money

    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.

    I can not find a job. Therefore, I can not save as much money

    OH MY GOODNESS... (If this is what I think it is and that's a sorta sequel to Pokemon XD Gale of Darkness.) THIS IS WHAT I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR SINCE I BEAT XD. I agree the names are kinda stupid, (Croakie?) but what the hey? Isn't it good enough to have a 3D pokemon game? I think so.

    Also, I like Bird Y flying thing.

    I don't think it looks lame, I think it looks friggin' majestc (lol), but I have always been a red fan more than a blue fan, so automatically I like Yveltal better. Plus those claws on his wings and tail look beast as all get out.

    So, I found this theory on the Pokememes section of icanhazcheesburger. It is submitted by Cheesechips and I believe that handle re-posted it from another source, but either way this idea is not an original one. 

    Anyway, there is a theory that our two new legendaries are actually two new types, with Yveltal being a "Sound" type, and Xerneas being a "light" type. 

    Evidence for Yveltal being a sound type, 

    1. Based on a Wyvern, which releases large shrieks and sounds. 

    2. There are many "sound" pokemon in the game (Audino, Whismur, Exploud etc...)

    3. Yveltal is the only pokemon to make a sound in the trailer. 

    Evidence for Xerneas being a "light" type.

    1. Already a requested fan type.

    2. The colors in the antlers represent the light spectrum.

    3. The screen is flooded with light when Xerneas makes an appearance in the forest. 

    Finally, Light and Sound could be seen as opposites. (Visual vs Audio)

    Honestly, I don't think there is any merit to this, but it is fun to speculate. If anything, Yveltal is dark and Xerneas is light.

    Am I the only one who whonders how the third legendary will look like? Will he be shaped like the letter Z? How would it be possible to make a cool legendary with the shape of the letter Z?

    Well, i think its assured he will resemble a Z in some way, perhaps he's a snake or something similar? Since i think the games are based of the dimenisions (XYZ) and the legendaries following this theme (Xerneas lives on the land (X axis) while Yveltal lives in the air (Y axis)) i think that the Z legendary will represent depth/3d.

    Personally, I think he'll be a ground type that resembles a worm :L

    well yveltal looks like a y when it opens its wings

  • #78 deded55

    Xerneas is going to travel long distances on foot, whilst Yveltal flies high (I'm going with the dimensions theme rather than chromosones).

    Yveltal will be flying-dark or flying-fire and Xerneas will be ground-grass or ground-water maybe? That's only if they don't introduce new types...

  • #80 deded55

    Which means they'll be a third, Z based pokemon.

    Here is a link for a funny joke of xerneas

    And by the way

    Xerneas- most likely fairy-ground type

    Yveltal- Most likely dark-fire type
