I will never remember these names. :c
Um, actually, at first, they sounded like tounge-twisters, but now they look more suitable and easy-to-remember names :/

Why couldn't Xerneas have his front legs in a slightly more aggressive, opened stance, making him look like an X? I know the trailer has his eye shown to be an X, but that isn't the image of him being made famous. Does this bother no one else?
Nope. True, comsidering Yveltal is a living and breathing letter Y, Xerneas should've looked moar X-like overall.
Yveltal shouldve looked less Y like.

These Nordic names are good. There could have been way worse options for names, but these are nice on the eyes, although shaky on the tongue. But we've got months to learn them, so I don't mind one bit.

Xerneas... Finally a name to my favorite of the two. Yveltal is a lame name - sounds Nordic - but Xerneas is cool.
hey! Nords have some of the best names! Lol

RBY are the worst games in the series gameplay wise and the Kanto designs overall are the second worst batch.
there would never be pokemon as we know it with no RBY, you dislike first gen that did umm pretty much everything 2nd gen only introduced 1 new thing, 3rd introduced 3 things, 4th introduced a bunch of new stuff (underground, wi-fi battling, GTS trade) black and white did not introduced anything new outside the DW.
Er, Gen2 introduced Breeding, Genders, night and day cycles, female playable characters, partial animated sprites, hold items, roaming Pokemon, Shiny Pokemon, and the Exp Bar in battles. Biggest amount of new features of any new Gen by a mile.
As well as Dark and Steel and a rebalanced type chart.
(edit: and the Special split!)

RBY was so flawed it wasnt even funny. So many bugs (not the Pokémon) as well
Don't get me wrong, RBY are still a lot of fun to play.

Couldn't tell from the first time you said it.

Will I be the first to start a speculation of.... "Eevee-ltal" for the Yveltal"?
See what I did there?

But won't work though. Legendaries do not have offspring, aside from Manaphy.

I'm actually quite surprise that I like the names right off the bat. Normally when they announce the two legendaries for a new Pokemon game(Dialga and Palkia for example), I find them to be horrible names and then I start to like them or never do. But I actually like the names for them this time around. Yveltal sounds pretty awesome.
