...is that we can finally shut up all those people who keep saying that X and Y represent chromosomes.

My time with X and Y, though brief, was enlightening. Yet one question still stuck in my mind. Pokémon generations have always featured naming schemes where the sets of games are “opposite yet complementary” – they are all sets of things, but they could be viewed as opposites to each other: Red, Blue, and Yellow; Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum. I had seen X and Y as following this scheme, with X and Y being the female and male chromosomes, respectively. The feminine grace of Xerneas and the fierce, masculine image of Yveltal cemented this association in my mind. But it turned out my assumptions were completely wrong.

“The names of X and Y represent the philosophy we had behind the two games,” explained Yoshida. “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.”

Yeah, I hadn't seen it. It was bumped minutes before I made the topic - while I was reading the IGN article.

Yeah, I'm reading this article too. Though that's not what exactly stood out to me. How about the confirmed part that the game if Officially NOT all in 3D. Now it's confirmed. Though most people already had a gut feeling on this.

Given I like the 3D features, I wouldn't call that the "best thing". >_>

Though I am left wondering "Who is Professor Sequoia?" Mentioned in the article. Perhaps just a mistake and they meant "Sycamore"...
