If this game does end up having a DNA theme...

...WHY exactly do people also expect there to be a Z counterpart?

I mean, there's no Z chromosome (to my knowledge), so it would kind of fall apart.

I still say they just picked X and Y because XYZ go together. Not DNA, not the XYZ axis, just because they need a new trio and wanted something besides colours/gems/metals.

Yeah, "XY" really captures the whole 3D thing

I still doubt it has that deep a meaning. Diamond and Pearl weren't about finding gems, were they?

It could be baised off of DNA but since its the 3DS they named it X and Y figuring people will associate it with the different planes

I'm just guessing it's just a cleaver naming thing, like with any Nintendo game has to have the system name somewhere in the titles

Super metroid
Starfox 64
Gamecube was spared this trend I believe
Almost any Wii game

When GBA came out you had titles with the word "Advance" somewhere

Even though it wasn't in the game but When pokemon was in Hoenn didn't they have a season called the "Advance generation"?

DS had games with DS or a play on DS like Dual Strike or something.
