I'm really intrigued with the typing of X and Y's mascots, Xerneas and Yveltal. Before Game Freak reveal this information, I thought it would be fun for some Charmsians to make their predictions. I'll quickly present you guys with information about the two legendaries, as well as their assumed origins: Xerneas 3.0 M, 215 Kg "Xerneas comes from the letter X. It may be derived from cervus (Latin for deer), Cernunnos (horned Celtic god), and Ceryneian Hind." Yveltal 5.8 M, 203 Kg "Yveltal comes from the letter Y. It may also be derived from yvel (a Middle English spelling of evil) and quetzal." My Guess I believe that Xerneas will be Grass/Steel and that Yveltal will be Dark/Flying. I chose grass for Xerneas because of its possible connections with a Celtic god (the Celts were very much part of nature themselves), while its antlers and unusually large weight compared with its size lead me to believe that it is part steel as well. I chose Dark/Flying for Yveltal, because it seems bird-like, and its name may be derived from a bird, so flying makes sense. The 'evil' part of its name lends itself to the dark typing. Additionally, these typings fit with what I believe these mascots represent - Chaos and Order. Chaos is often associated with evil, and the way that Yveltal can fly around shrieking (as it does in the trailer) makes it seem chaotic. With Xerneas, grass represents nature and comfort, as well as the familiar 'structure' of our planet, while steel symbolises stability and power.
