Let's Get This Started!
I read this from another message board a long time ago and really liked the idea.
I doubt Game Freak will use the idea though since we just had a legendary quartet in this generation.
Anyway, it's a legendary quartet based on the 4 horsemen of the apocalypse. Another reason I doubt they'll use it is because the Musketeer Trio + Keldeo are quadrupedal as well.
Pestilence: Poison type
War: Fighting type
Famine: Grass type
Death: Ghost type
It would be cool if they based future Pokemon off this story.
I wonder if GF will repeat the #000 formula, being #650 a legendary a la Victini. Maybe #650 (or regional #000) could be Original Dragon, to set a link with Gen V and Tao trio. Or maybe "Primisect". Or maybe any random new Legendary.
i really hope they bring more gen III style Pokémon. there were not enough of those for me.
and they had better not spam all of these legendary pokémon like in gen V. i hated that alot.
"At noon on Wednesday, i'm gonna be leaving a watermelon-pineapple treasure inside of Liam Neeson. He's the one with the cooked fish allergies."
Just like everybody else, I'm hoping the Fire starter isn't part Fighting. XD
I'm hoping that the new region -- if it isn't based near Unova -- is based off of Australia and New Zealand. Kiwi, Weta, Tasmanian Devil, Cassowary, and other kinds based off of animals from those two areas would be nice.
Ah, another thing. When new evolutions (or pre-evo) for Pokémon were created, GF invented new items and methods to avoid discrepancies. For example, incienses to "explain" why in Gen II Marill didn't breed Azurill. Or Dusk Stone to evolve Murkrow and Misdreavus who were unable to evolve in Gen II and III. There were a couple of oversights (in Gen II you were able to breed Swinub with Ancient Power), but GF always tried to keep some consistency, even between incompatible generations.
In Gen V Eviolite was introduced, being effective only for not-fully evolved Pokémon. Now, imagine they introduce an evolution for... let's say, Farfetch'd. Eviolite didn't work on Farfetch'd in Gen V, but it will in Gen VI, generating a discrepancy.
So, unless GF oversees that, it's likely GF won't introduce new evolutions for old Pokémon anymore, unless they were branch evolutions (for example, Introducing a new eeveelution won't break this consistency since Eevee is already able to evolve and Eviolite already works for it).
It's just a hypothesis I have, probably GF won't consider this.
Bulbapedia mentions that the pixies are based on the 5 Chinese Elements:
But, is Mew a good representation of Earth if this is the case? All the other pixies are very literal in regards to this theory, but Mew isn't or doesn't seem to be. Perhaps the next pixie with a 600 BST will be psychic/ground or psychic/rock to convey Earth?

Land Forme and Sky Forme Shaymin already have earth (in the the physical sense) and air covered.
I hope that there won't be another Mew-like Pokémon. By all means, one of the legendaries should be cute, but I am tired of Game Freak adhering to traditions for the sake of it. We don't need another legendary with 100 base stats across the board, and if Manaphy, Shaymin and Victini are anything to go by, a seventh Mew-like Pokémon won't have any real myth to speak of. No thanks.
Piloswine learned Ancient Power in Gen II yet they couldn't evolve Mamoswine until Gen IV same with Lickitung and Lickilicky
