    Why are some people thinking Yveltal is a she? o_O

    Thing is, a lot of people.don't think that he's a wyvern.

    Gamefreak could just pull another Venomoth and make Yveltal Pure Dark. Xerneas could be Normal alongside while a possible Z legendary can be Fighting to be stronger then the XY duo.

    That idea is just crazy enough to work XD

    Scratch that master of the two, personally a master duo that surpasses Xerneas and Yveltal strength would be intriguing to see. Two legendary masters, one that outclasses Xerneas and vice versa.

    I doubt they'd do that for such an important Pokemon. Trio, maybe, but mascots? No way.

    It... It's the same art as before...

    Besides, it has a giant wingspan and fur around its neck, as well as a set of distinctly bird-like talons on its feet. Yveltal being a condor is probably a safer bet than it being a wyvern is.

    Ooh, this spawns an interesting idea.
    Instead of a 3rd game and a numbered sequel, it'd be a new pair of games with an alternate storyline (I mean entirely revamped story, not just adding a 3rd legendary in), with those 2 as the new mascots. Maybe like X^2 and Y^2. I'd be all over that.

    Wyverns also have 2 legs and talons. I just looked up condors and he definately looks more dragon-like than vulture-like

    Let's just say he's both and leave it at that, zzzzz.

    Which is probably because condors aren't vultures.

    Either way, even the way its wings are affixed is more bird-like. Wyverns tend to have bat-like wings with claws that meet near the middle of the wing, whereas Yveltal's claws are at the end of his wings, like a bird's feathers. Even in the trailer, his flight is more akin to that of a bird. Beyond that, the talons on his feet are set up so that there are two in the front and one on the back, which allows his to clamp onto things just like a bird does, which is also evidenced by the way his talons are squeezed. Look at Braviary and Pidgeot, for example. Wyvern's have more lizard-like feet which are usually more elongated, like a regular foot. And like I said, there's the fur around his neck to consider as well.

    That would be just great. ;D

    To be honest, I could see Yveltal being a condor/wyvern-like creature either way; I've seen interpretations of both.
    Although I am tempted to lean more towards the reptilian side. I wouldn't complain either way though. :I


    Might have to do with the DNA-relation speculation with X and Y chromosomes, hence that.
    A Mascot with genders, whoa. o;

    I don't see why not?
    To me Yveltal looks very fierce and *IMO* graceful and elegant.
    Just because its tough looking doesn't mean she can't be a she.
    Granbull looks like it would be predominantly male, but on the contrary its
    Actually predominantly female.

    I wonder if yveltal's wing and tail appendages (claws? talons?)can all connect, it rolls up In a ball and demolishes things like a meteorite or somethin. Weird that it has the same things on its wings/hands and tail

    There has to be some type of usage, it wouldn't make sense for Gamefreak to design a pokemon,
    With three seperate appendages that are essentially all the same.
    Question is, what exactly are they used for.?

    Unless they wanted it to look like a Y for some strange reason.

    I bet it's the legendary for Y and they DID want it to look like a Y or something... xD

    Clawing and gripping, probably.

    okay so I just realized that guessing what the new legendaries are going to be is pointless.
    all we know for sure for sure or at least through speculation is that Yveltal is most definatley flying, and xerneas may most likely be steel. we can't make assumptions throught he information we have it this time.

    Yveltal is based off of the condor in Norse Mythology, Xerneas is based off of the Yaks in Norse Mythology, Which means "Z" is going to be the Midgard Serpent. Also, who even thought it was X, Y, W? That doesn't even make sense.

    Yveltal is Fire/Flying. Xerneas is Grass/Steel. Which means "Z" should be Water/Rock. Making them an even trio, just like the starters. The first legendary trio to do that. That's my guess. ;)

    ALSO.. Condors ARE in fact Vultures.
