Time to Create

I think we have enough to go ahead and kick off the two legendary Pokémon pages. (Other being Xerneas.) CycloneGU (talk) 15:13, 9 January 2013 (UTC)

Because we don't know the types these Pokémon will have yet, we will be holding back the creation of their articles for now. Knowing the type of a Pokémon is basic information, but a relevant one when creating an article (mainly because of {{PokémonInfobox}}). Masatoshitalk 16:47, 9 January 2013 (UTC)


Before the pages get ready, can I make the redirect pages already? the ones with pokemon instead of Pokémon, e.g. Xerneas (pokemon) redirect to Xerneas (Pokémon).--Igor (talk) 16:02, 9 January 2013 (UTC)

I personally see barely any point in creating redirects to an inexistent article. It will create false positives shown in the search bar, misleading a lot of people. I suggest you to wait until we actually create the article.


It seems as if it's being pronounced "ee-vell-tall," and I don't want to speculate too much, but could the name possibly come from "evil" or something along those lines? --Zewis (29) 22:02, 9 January 2013 (UTC)

The name also seems to stem from the figure in Aztec myth named "Coatl." Or at least, that's what my mind went to when I first saw it's name. Coatl is often represented as a winged serpent not unlike the design of Yveltal. Zoraluigi (talk) 01:55, 10 January 2013 (UTC)
How about Weltall? Even though you hear about it from Xenogears, it's German for universe or space--a hint to its origins. Lennox (talk) 02:14, 10 January 2013 (UTC)
So in other words, we shouldn't do anything yet? --Zewis (29) 11:18, 10 January 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, I suppose we shouldn't. Time will tell, I suppose. --Zoraluigi (Talk) 16:52, 10 January 2013 (UTC)

"The mascot of Pokémon Y"?

...should we really be saying this right now? I know they're not the same games, but Black and White flipped things on us before. At the very least, this comment needs to be sourced if true; otherwise it should be left out. Starscream (talk) 13:52, 10 January 2013 (UTC)

The X and Y in the logos of the games are styled after Xerneas's horns and Yveltal wings. It's pretty obvious that they're going to be the mascots. - Blazios talk 13:55, 10 January 2013 (UTC)
It was "pretty obvious" that Alomomola was the evolution of Luvdisc, but that turned out to be bunk, too. We shouldn't be making any assumptions about any of the Pokémon that have been revealed so far. It doesn't matter if they WILL be; there's been no announcement about it so far, so the information shouldn't be up yet. Starscream (talk) 02:34, 11 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Starscream does have a point though, but they probably will end up being mascots at least. ----NateVirus(Talk|Contributions) 20:44, 10 January 2013 (UTC)
I feel like they wouldn't have released a game called "Pokémon Y," have one of the only five Pokémon in the promotional video clearly be a legendary, make it shaped like a giant Y, and later reveal its name to start with a Y, without it being the mascot. --Zewis (29) 03:38, 11 January 2013 (UTC)
Zekrom and Reshiram seemingly traded what versions they should have been mascots for, recall. Game Freak's decisions won't always comply with expectation or common sense. No matter how obvious it seems to be, it is still not confirmed. On a similar note, we also shouldn't be assuming what bodytype category they'll go in, since that system could get retired anyway. yeyjordan 06:08, 11 January 2013 (UTC)
Except they didn't. They were going for a Yin Yang theme. That's all. Ataro (talk) 07:15, 11 January 2013 (UTC)
well they released the new magazine, which seems to agree with the fact that Yveltal is in Pokemon Y and Xerneas is in Pokemon X

Possible Future Trivia? Or Origin? Maybe, maybe not?

  • This maybe too soon or just plain stupid on my part but anyone noticed how Yveltal looks like a Y? I know it probably was what they were going after considering the game title, just didn't know if that was trivia-worthy or an origin-worthy note yet if not at all. ----NateVirus(Talk|Contributions) 20:44, 10 January 2013 (UTC)
I would say that something like that would probably be best in the physiology section or something. --It's Funktastic~! (talk) 20:47, 10 January 2013 (UTC)
  • I'd figured as much. But I guess that can be added later when we get more info on the game and/or the Pokémon itself. ----NateVirus(Talk|Contributions) 21:00, 10 January 2013 (UTC)
