    Yveltal sounds South American to me, but I read on one of the linked articles that someone else thought both names were Nordic. What are the name origins?

    I wonder if they accidentally forgot to include the names in the trailer, so they revealed them like this? And will we get more names tomorrow?

    Xerneas and Yveltal. The names fit. They seem ancient, majestic, like the Pokémon themselves. Xerneas is my fav <3

    I admit, the names Xerneas and Yveltal sound cool, and, while neither of them are currently my favorite, I am sure that I will get to like them once I get to know them better and spend some time with them, much like how I got to especially like Reshiram and Zekrom this generation.

    "Xerneas", huh? am I the only one finding something very familiar in its design?

    sure, the body's much thinner, but something about the head reminds me of the "Great Forest Spirit" from the Ghibli film "Princess Mononoke"... it just seems very similar

    I can almost guarantee that Yveltal comes from the German Weltall, which means "cosmos", or more specifically, the space beyond Earth's atmosphere. I've yet to figure out the nomenclature for Xerneas, though, as it's not as blatantly obvious.

    These names are not nearly complicated enough. There's no Z or W or umlauts. This is unacceptable.

    But on a more serious note. The names are cool, and Xerneas is totally boss and I'm getting whichever version lets me get it. It reminds me of the creepy deer from Studio Ghibli's Princess Mononoke, just as Phoenix said.

    Since people were talking about it, Pokémon tweeted the official pronunciations. Xerneas: ZURR-nee-us and Yveltal: ee-VELL-tall

    Yveltal
    combination of yvel - evil (middle english) and kartal - eagle (turkish)

    Xerneas
    corruption of ceryneian hind/Cerynitis - big deer that heracles must catch

    Yveltal is the most preferred legendary now, lol. Because of it's red color base and it looks like Y when it flies.

    X/Y has made me look into buying a 3DS.
