    They could go to the same route as Mewtwo in the first movie did, you know, questioning our own existence, and the mature-ish theme that ''magic'' can be explained by genes.

    We could get some cross between Mewtwo and Trubbish, a legendary that's some horrible mutant thing created through a laboratory accident.

    I didn't notice the little double helix looking thing on the X and Y logos until just now; the games are going to have some kind of focus on molecular biology!

    According to the special message from Masuda, beauty is a theme of the game. I can see how that would tie into Kalos due to being based on France. I wonder if the beauty theme has anything to do with the genetics theme I've heard being speculated as well. There is a lot I could see them doing with the beauty theme, like beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so that should be interesting.

    Beauty is certainly an interesting theme. Judging by the map, it seems to have a lot of natural and constructed beauty.

    Beauty of trainers, beauty of the region, beauty of Pokemon (which could then tie into a genetics theme) are all interesting possibilities. I'm curious to see how this'll play out during the game and, if it's a major part of the plot, with the evil team.
    Hidden Mew and Akromatic like this.

    Did he say beauty was theme of the games, or just a theme of the region?

    If Beauty is indeed the theme, then I expect a "Beauty Pokémon" who is based on a ballerina, rainbow color scheme and is Fairy type.

    You know you want it.

    Well this is what he said...

    "The Kalos region, the home for the Pokémon X and Pokémon Y story, is inspired by France."

    "First of all, we decided to use beauty as a game theme and, when thinking about where such a place would be, we were inspired by one country in particular."

    "A country that is reported to be the most visited in the world..."

    "A country which is very particular about fashion and the aesthetics of their cuisine..."

    "A country concerned with the beauty of words. Yup, we thought of France!"

    "As it happens, Kalos comes from the ancient Greek word meaning beauty."

    Continuing on from some dialogue that talks about all the places he visited like Marseille and Mont Saint-Michel he says...

    "I remember very well that everything I saw was beautiful."

    Overall I think that it is maybe a reference to the region. Though probably the theme of the story might involve DNA and a team who maybe wishes to harness the perfect DNA, and we know some tend to think that something perfect is beautiful or vice versa, okay now I'm rambling so I'll stop XD

    That kind of a story in Europe could get dicey real quick .

    It would be really interesting if it played a role with the evil team and their goal. I'm not sure how that would work out, but it sounds pretty cool.

    Well, I guess the theme of beauty, if executed well, could be as profound and deep as the theme of truth/ideals in B/W.

    I don't like the idea of using "Beauty" as the theme for the general plot of the games, it does not sound as interesting as Truth/Ideals :l

    What would be the goal of the evil team, to make everything look ugly and deformed?

    But we already have Garbodor, the perfect Pokémon to represent Beauty.

    I think beauty as a theme could go pretty deep. N himself mentioned "an ugly formula". Maybe the evil team this gen will have a deeper interpretation of beauty in regards to other things.
