I think what may define the popularity of the new lengedaries is their typings.
I guess one of the reasons Reshiram ended up being more popular is due to it being a Fire-type Pokémon. Fire is probably the most loved type besides Dragon.
I personally liked both Reshiram and Zekrom equally when they were revealed.
Xerneas. I originally was going to get Y version Yveltal, but then I was all like...Eh. Xerneas seems cool...But I'll probably end up buying both versions like I did with B/W2.
I like both, but Xerneas gets my vote. It looks really cool with those big rainbow antlers.
When I first saw the trailer, I would have chosen Xerneas. Comparing these pictures, I have to say Yveltal (the most badass looking Pokemon to date)
With Xerneas and Yveltal, I have this feeling of instant love and connection again, which I haven't felt since Gen IV, and it makes me get the feeling that this generation is going to be great.
I love that we will argue about this until the day ends even though we all know that same thing about both of these pokes...absolutely nothing!!
When we figure out their types, stats, and pokedex entries I very well might change my vote, but looks wise I chose Xerneas.
I just noticed that in the video in your sig Xerneas has X shaped pupils. I wonder if Yveltal has Y shaped ones then...
Weird. I think it would be kinda cool for Yveltal to have Y shaped pupils.
Yveltal. It's like a molten Lugia. An evil molten Lugia.
It also reminds me of Ho-oh. For me, that alone is good enough to put it over Xerneas.
Plus Xerneas is like a buffed-up Sawsbuck.
Xerneas 110% don't get me wrong Yveltal is just as cool but Xerneas is just so graceful and yet cool at the same time. Also did I mention sword legs like yeah I'm sold :)
Yveltal. It's looks like it's flying hell and struts as if it could kill you with a single glance (which it probably could). Plus, it looks like it's going to be a Fire type, which I always favor. But even if it doesn't, it's still awesome.
Therefore, it is 1000% badass
, and the actual best pokémon. Everything else go home.
I think generation 6 looks HORRIBLE, making it the first pokemon game I wouldn't like. Thanks a bunch, gen 6.
But I think Yveltal looks pretty boss, I'll admit. Xerneas.......Sawsbuck, much? Its just incredibly stupid in my opinion. Poor design, poor potential.
How will it and Yveltal even relate as rival legendaries? It will take a miracle to save gen 6's storyline.......
You're entitled to your own opinion, but I say give it a proper chance first before you decide to hate on it.
