Yveltal could be Fighting/Flying

#1Renjiro7Posted 5/9/2013 7:58:55 PM
I haven't really heard this speculation. At first, it's easy to think it's Dark or Fire because it's Black/Red, but beyond its colors...

-the diamonds on its back remind me of a samurai sword's handle
-its wings and tail look like hands that can curl up and form fists
-name could be from Gilbert Yvel, a mixed martial arts fighter

...that also makes me think Xerneas is Psychic which is fitting for a Deer God looking pokemon and balances the two since Yveltal would have the advantage over Ground (x axis).

There's also a theory for this gen's theme that the legendaries represent war and peace, with Yveltal being the more aggressive one and Xerneas that seems calm. -bit.ly/YJ7pGx

Yveltal sounds like it's based on Quetzalcoatl, the aztec serpent god.

While your arguments are not that convincing to me, TC, Yveltal could be pretty much anything, regardless of color scheme, or even design.

Flying is really the only thing we can safely assume about him, and even that could end up being wrong.

I don't really find them all that convincing either. And while it could be anything, there are some types it's more likely to be than others based on its design. I'm just saying Fighting/Flying is one of the more likely ones along with other popular guesses like Dark, Fire and Dragon, though I don't see this brought up as much.

The biology/genetics theme theory also supports Yveltal being Fighting, representing muscles and blood, being red and having veins-looking design, while Xerneas represents the neurons, in which case he could still be Psychic since that has to do with the brain...or Electric (nerve cells, impulse) with its glowing antlers.

Sucks for Yveltal if he's Fighting/Flying and his rival Legendary is Psychic/Electric... XD

Who knows, if you would have told me Zekrom was electric I would have looked at you odd.
