Xernas certainly fits in that perfect.

I've got a quote that embodies you perfectly, but it's seventy-three posts long, has a few massive flowcharts, and lots of Xion-KMA to Me

thats ideas has already been debunked

i find this one more fitting

Yveltal and Xerneas are based on yatagarasu and shishigami respectively

Z is supposed to be a shachihoko

When was it debunked and why and how? o.o

Just curious I mean cause well Xerneas seems to fit really really well.

There's nothing confirming that theory either, it's all just speculation on the designs until Gf out and out confirms one or the other (or none of them).

I think DNA, chromosomes, genetics, etc. is the overall theme this time.

Because Pokemon games have never referenced mythology from other cultures before.

Yvertal is a black bird = crow = yatagarasu

Yveltal is a bird; that much is certain. There's nothing to suggest it's a crow or an eagle. If you're just basing it on the fact it's black, well, eagles can be black, too.

Xerneas is a deer with huge ass horns = shishigami


So, what do yatagarasu, shishisami, and shachihoko have to do with each other? At least the Norse theory links them together.
