Yveltal and Xerneas battle

Pokémon X and Pokémon Y are arriving in October 2013 for the Nintendo 3DS and two new legendary Pokémon were revealed, Xerneas and Yveltal.

JelloJolteon2000 the artist behind this images has the theory that Y and X stand for the Y and X Chromosomes, and that it could be about a battle of the Genders, the “Sexes” in the new games maybe..and that Yveltal and Xerneas might indeed have some beef with each other in the games too 😉

…You know, why do all the mascot legendaries after gen II have to be mad at each other? Groudon and Kyogre was fine, that stuff actually happens, but Dialga and Palkia? What? I’m pretty sure time and space work together and Reshiram and Zekrom was just kinda… eh. I mean, I understand that there was a point there, that you can have BOTH truths and ideals, but goodness, those brothers were pretty durn stupid.

But this is kind of asking for it. You know these two will at some point have been/be/will be at each others throats, the way I understood them as the X and Y chromosomes. This leads to some irony, as I am willing to bet that if they do gender them 100% like I think they will, Yveltal is going to be female despite being Y. I dunno, it just looks more effeminate than, y’know, a MALE deer. With a crapton of antlers. What is that? A 16-pointer?

…I’m getting off track.

Beside this one, there are a lot of other theories about the Pokémon X and Y names and Yveltal and Xerneas, but i think this one sounds plausible! But more important is that the image looks damn great and it is amazing to see such art being created so short after the announcement of a new game in the long running Nintendo series. Awesome work @ JelloJolteon2000
