its just slightly depressing that the creative process was limited to 'let's make pokemon that look like the alphabet". The unown are weird enough. Legendaries shouldn't have to fall into that dreadful cast as well.
It's no less un-creative than making Reshiram and Zekrom white and black, or Groudon and Kyogre red-ish and blue-ish.
Also, if you even look at Xerneas, do you see an X? Not likely. It has to position itself to look like an X, which is more clever than having it just look like an X all the time. --- NO MORE HOME ROWED BECAUSE I'M A GOOD GIRL so drag me down to the ocean floor, 'cause i don't wanna fight no more
you've got a point with Xerneas. The first thing I thought of actually was that movie Princess Mononoke i think it was. If it wasn't that one then it was definitely one of Studio Ghibli's movies. Yveltal though...with that "third wing/hand/phallis?" lol
