Mysterious Shadow on Pokemon.com (Yveltal?)!!!

If you stay on that page and look on the right side where there is the background picture of the sky, there's a dark shadow that appears behind the selection window (opposite side the the background picture of the forest with all the leaves).

It shows up every 3-6 seconds and spirals!

Could that be Yveltal?!

And if so, is this a confirmation/hint to it being Dark and Flying type?

According to rumor, Yveltal is Dark/Flying and Xerneas is Fairy.
The background pictures fit with this...

Confirmation? No, and you should feel bad for thinking so.

Hint? Eh. Flying is obvious. Dark? It's certainly possible, and Hiro thinks so, but I don't see how this qualifies as a hint.

Also, I see no spiraling shadow. I see a darkened region on the right side that looks like the letter "Y", but it doesn't move.

1. that's why I put "/hint" after that word.

2. A dark swirling shadow in the sky... Yep, you're right, doesn't sound like a hint to Dark/Flying at all... /sarcasm

That picture doesn't seem to animate like it does on the actual main page

That would be a jpeg. Jpegs do not animate. So I have no idea what TC was talking about when he mentioned a shadow "showing up every 3-6 seconds and spiraling."

Yes, the jpeg does show the right side of the panel (the one with the clouds and the Y) being darker than the left side, but... Zekrom ring any bells? Anyway, it's Ghost - not Dark - that gets all the "Shadow" moves.

Of course, Hiro did say Yveltal would be Dark/Flying, and that does look like a possibility just from Yveltal's design, but I still don't think this is a strong enough hint on its own.

Maybe a hint at types?

The fog is purple-ish and looks like smog...so maybe
Xerneas = leaves (grass), forest (fairy)
Yvetal = purple smog (Poison), sky (flying)

If you go on the actual page (the one I posted) you should see an animation in the background of a spiraling shadow that starts at the top and moves behind the main selection window and then comes back out at the bottom under the selection window (the one that shifts between the pictures of the new heroes, the new pokemon, and the new region etc.)
