Nintendo of America has revealed the names of the two Legendary Pokemon which will feature in the forthcoming Pokemon X and Pokemon Y for the Nintendo 3DS. The Pokemon X Legendary is called Xerneas, which is pronounced Zurr-nee-us. The Pokemon Y mascot is called Yveltal, which is pronounced ee-vell-tall. Pokemon X And Pokemon Y launch globally sometime in October.

Thanks, Sonicjms


  1. Those are fucking awkward to pronounce.

    But like all Pokemon names, I’ll hate them at first but inevitably warm up to them as they become more familiar.


  2. Off-topic: Can the 3DS play all of the DS Pokémon games? I heard that there’s an issue with plaing certain games.

    I’m familiar with the differences in DS models, but may get the 3DS due to this release. Thanks.


  3. Not crazy about the names, but the designs of the Pokemon are “flawless.” I’m sure I will get used to their weird pronounceation… I mean everyone got used to Gyarados!!! lol!


  4. I miss the days when a legendary Pokemon actually meant something. There’s SO many legendary Pokemon these days that it makes me question, “what does legendary even mean”?


    • My guess is that their definition for “Legendary” is just, a Pokemon that has much more power than a standard Pokemon. But I wonder who would win if you threw all the legendary Pokemon together and made them all battle?


  5. To those who say Pokemon is a kids game or for paedophiles… They must not have played the games at all…

    Granted, it isn’t James Patterson in gaming form, but there are definite disturbing undertones in the Pokemon franchise, particularly Pokemon Black and White 2.

    1. Ghetsis actually tries to KILL you in this game, not merely defeat you like most Pokemon villains I have encountered so far.

    2. If you have ever visited the Strange House and the Old Chateau… Well, it doesn’t need an explanation, but I’ll give one anyway.

    a) Old Chateau is the ‘haunted place’ in the Gen 4 games. You see human ghosts, which disturbing enough; not to mention the creepy potrait in the upstairs back room that follows you with its eyes! The musical score gives you the willies big time.

    b) Strange House is probably one of the scariest places in the Gen 5 games. It’s an abandoned house with broken windows and run down fences. You go inside and theres ripped banners all over the frickin’ walls. Furniture moves around of its own accord. The description of the place mentions something about a horrible incident. Whilst exploring, you go up onto the upstairs balcony. A ghost of a little girl appears, much like Gen 4, except the ghosts in Gen 4 don’t talk. This one does. She cries out for her family, not knowing where they are. Add to that the incredibly unnerving music and suddenly Pokemon isn’t so innocent after all…

    3. Lostlorn forest is a little unnerving, partly due to the music and partly due to the Zoroark that scares the living daylights out of you the first time you visit.

    4. This is trivial, but if you go down underneath the Village Bridge you find an extremely depressed, possibly insane man muttering about how much he hates his life. ‘Bridge’, ‘depressed man’? Am I the only one getting a little distressed about this?

    5. Some of the Pokemon are a little scary too. The likes of Cofagirus and Chandelure (and associated pre-evolutions) are terrifying concepts.
