I wonder where X/Y came from...

Pokemon has used colours or gems in their titles but suddenly we get something that sounds like a placeholder. Just a thought.

Possibly something to do with genes.

I know X/Y's many meanings but it's a weird title for Pokemon. I doubt it'll connect to the story, it usually doesn't. If it does, I'm going to assume a more genetic approach.

I have a feeling it might connect to the story. They've bee going for more story since Gen 5. Also, the fact that the double helix is in the Japanese logo must mean something.

That's true but since "last gen" is not a trend.

Genes and dimensions.

They seem to at least correlate with the shapes of the mascots. X for Xerneas and Y for Yveltal, which sounds like evil (and it looks pretty sinister IMO). It seems to be a simple, universal translation, which is especially good since they are working on localizing the games while producing the content for it for a worldwide/international release in October. It very progressive, convenient, and evolution (since this is about Pokémon).

The Japanese logos have DNA in it
