X and Y has nothing to do with chromosomes (confirmed)

“We’ve taken the idea of X and Y from the geometric X- and Y-axes. They represent two different ways of thought. At the same time, we want to convey a message encouraging people to find a common ground, where X and Y converge.”

Z-axis still unaccounted for. Pokemon Z confirmed?

I kinda wish they didn't confirm it. Or at least just said it was a double meaning.

But yeah, Pokémon Z is looking pretty likely now.

The Z legend will probably represent, peace or something since they mention the part about people meeting in the middle.

If Z isn't a thing I'd be heavily surprised

Xerneas is on the ground, like X. Yveltal is in the sky, like Y.

Does that mean Z will be opposite to Xerneas?

Z would come out, towards us, the viewer

It's like walking up to a girl you really like, going in for a kiss, only to get a casual punch to the face before the kiss.

Clearly the Z-mon will only be capable of sidestepping.

He does the grapevine every time he tries to move

That certainly doesn't rule out that there's a double meaning. It's hard to ignore the DNA aspect give that there's a DNA double helix embedded into the Japanese Pokemon X and Y logos.

It's like when girls say they like guys that are nice and financially stable. Yeah, of course that's all girls want...
