Or maybe that's just what people were assuming it would be.

 

Exactly.  This is another case of "I Knew It" as many people looked at Magearna and automatically assumed its typing would be Steel/Fairy.

Looks like the names of the mascots may have been leaked through trademark filings.

Solgaleo and Lunaala.

In Spanish (and Italian) ala means wing. So it could be a bird Pokémon or something along those lines. And of course Leo could indicate a lion, though we already have a fire lion, so maybe not.

Edit: another trademarked word - Gigareki. The trademark provides no context, so who knows what the hell it could be.

The indicated designations inhabit stupidity?

They're not as dumb as Xerneas and Yveltal. Nothing will top those in dumbness, or at least I hope nothing ever will.

The only problem i had with Xerneas and Yvaltal was that they had very little backstory to them. With previous games, the legendaries usually had massive backgrounds and stories and (for lack of a better word) legends surrounding them. With X and Y, there was something about them being used to power this weapon, but that was really it. All the big story bits were all mainly about the human characters (though that's not to say i didn't absolutely love AZ's backstory) whereas the legendaries were just kinda... there. While i'm not clicking on those spoilers, i really hope that Sun and Moon's mascots have a bit more going for them, plot-wise.

I was strictly talking about the

 

 

names

 

being

 

dumb

 

 

I wasn't referring to their backstories, although it's hard to recall any backstories beyond Gen3 because they're all blah, though I think I like B/W's story in the end.

 

Also, you yeah'd Fooshie's post without even seeing what the names were? They're just names. This really is taking the spoiler thing too far...

 

Anyway, I'm saying that Yveltal and Xerneas are the stupidest pokémon mascot names ever because their spellings are top tard with forced shitty lettering. Find me a more retarded poke gen mascot name.

The mascots are based on Norse mythology. In particular, Yveltal is based on the hawk the sits atop Yggdrasil. Its name may also be partially inspired by the Middle English "Yvel" (evil) given that it's a dark type. So I disagree that the name is "top tard" with "forced shitty lettering". At the very least it evokes the Nordic-inspired nature of the monster quite well.

Xerneas is kind of forced with the X, but overall the name is highly similar to multiple mythical deer (like Ceryneian Hind/Cerynitis), and overall the name seems fine enough to me.
