Xerneas in its Active Mode
Xerneas in its Neutral Mode
In the movies
Hundreds of years prior to the movie's events, Yveltal almost destroyed all life in Allearth Forest. However, Xerneas saved Dace and many other Pokémon from the destruction, and later reversed all the damage Yveltal did.
Diancie, unable to create diamonds without them disappearing after a few seconds, sought after Xerneas in hopes that it would give her the power to create diamonds that would not disappear, for if the Diamond Domain's Heart Diamond disappeared, the Domain could collapse, and Diancie was not able to create a new one. When Diancie met Xerneas, it revealed it was aware of Diancie's reason for seeking it, and told her that the power was within her. Xerneas granted Diancie what she was looking for: its Fairy Aura. Soon after, it gained a telepathic connection with Diancie.
Later, after Yveltal awakened again and had petrified large areas of the forest, Team Rocket, Merilyn, Riot, The Steels, the Carbink servants (save for Dace), and Pikachu (who tried to battle Yveltal) with Oblivion Wing, Xerneas eventually protected Ash and his friends from Yveltal's Oblivion Wing by using Aurora Beam to counter it and then used Fairy Aura to calm Yveltal's rage. After Yveltal left the forest, Xerneas used Geomancy to revive everyone and everything Yveltal had petrified. While using Geomancy, Xerneas began changing into its tree form. When asked if this meant that it was dying, it responded that it was simply beginning a new life.
Xerneas was seen in the credits remaining in the form of a tree, watching over the Allearth Forest.
Xerneas made a cameo appearance in I Choose You!, which is set in an alternate universe from the main anime. It was seen overlooking the Allearth Forest in its Neutral Mode.
Personality and characteristics
Xerneas is shown to be a very helpful Pokémon. Prior to the events of the movie, it saved the Allearth Forest from Yveltal and reversed much of the damage it did. It also revived Dace after it perished in the event. It granted Diancie its Fairy Aura, knowing that she sought after it for that reason. Later, it saved Ash and his friends by quelling Yveltal's rage, then restoring the life of the Allearth Forest using Geomancy. It also encouraged Diancie by telling her that her true power lies within her.

As with the other sets, an application postcard for the prize lottery to be run in September 2014 was also included.
- In the Brazilian Portuguese, Indian and Russian dubs, Xerneas was referred to as a female.
- Xerneas's actions at the end of the movie are similar to those of Jirachi in Jirachi: Wish Maker. Xerneas calmed Yveltal and revived everyone it petrified, similar to how Jirachi destroyed the Meta Groudon using Doom Desire and freed everyone it absorbed. Both Xerneas and Jirachi also went to sleep afterwards.
