The Z Pokemon might be Poison as it'll probably be a snake.


This makes the most sense to me. Hopefully its true.


God damn it, why does everyone say the Z Pokemon will be a snake? I thought this board hated the idea of reusing Pokemon concepts! There's plenty of other ways to incorporate a Z design without just making it a snake, you know!


It's because Xerneas and Yvetal seem based on the eagle and deer seen in Norse mythology. There is a serpent depicted with them.

Onthe subject, why do people seem to certain Yvetal is an eagle? I did some research, the deer and eagle that inhabit Yggdrasil are also accompanied by A DRAGON. Why are we so certain Yveltal is the eagle and not the dragon?

Probably because the dragon/serpent is underground at the roots, not in the air. Besides, Yveltal looks more like a bird than a dragon to me.

And before you say Altaria, it is supposedly based on a bird that is normally depicted with a dragon head in legends.

*sigh* I suppose that makes sense. I still hate how you're not allowed to discuss any other possibilities for a Z Pokemon though.
