Xerneas or Yveltal?
Posted 3/17/15 , edited 3/17/15
Here we go, folks, a poll.


Again, I will make this clear: I HATE that useless stag. I refuse to use a supposed LEGENDARY Pokemon which has THE WORST POSSIBLE NATURAL LEARNSET for ANY known main Legendary Pokemon. Why? I HATE using status moves outside of Quiver Dance, Coil, and Roost. Calm Mind is okay, but, umm, yeah.... Geomancy takes 2 full turns to fully activate, 3 if you count having to wait another turn to attack after Geomancy's effect is applied. In that time, Mega Aero or Speed Boost Scolipede or Mega/Standard Aggron or even a Mega/standard Scizor could DESTROY that stag, and it has happened to me before. Yes, I know they share stats, but compare the following tally of naturally learned moves: Xerneas: 9 Status, 7 Physical, and a measly 2 Special moves. Total: 18 moves. Its TM/HM list is: 18 Status as one is in its natural learnset, 6 Physical as one is again in its natural learnest, and 12 Special. Total TH/HM list is: 36. ORAS Tutors for it are: 6 total to compensate for naturally or TM ones. Total Status moves learned: 29. Total Physical moves learned: 15. Total Special moves learned: 16. Total Damaging moves learned: 31. Grand total: 60 moves. NONE of which are Play Rough. Now on to Yveltal: Naturalset: Status: 4, Physical: 5, and Special: 9. Total: 18. TM/HM: Status: 12 new ones, Physical: 15, Special: 5 new ones. Total TM/HM: 32. ORAS Tutor: Status: 1. Physical: 2. Special: 3. Total: 6. Grand Totals: Status: 17. Physical: 18. Special: 17. Totals: Status: 17. Damaging: 35. Grand Total: 52. Overall: Xerneas has more moves, yes. By 8. ALL are STATUS EFFECTS. See the difference here? Xerneas requires set up. ALOT of it. Yveltal can OHKO many things with its diverse movepool right from the off. My point is, Xerneas pales by comparison to Yveltal. End of.


Regarding Zygarde: It has a VERY good movepool and balanced stats. Its Ability trumps both its counterparts.

More players seem to have picked X than Y, so why not pick Y instead and go for Yveltal?

I have Pokemon Y but I don't like either Yveltal or Xerneas... (I don't really like any legendaries). I prefer non-legendaries, Crobat is the best.

I like Xerneas better but I chose to get X because of the exclusive pokemon it offers (eg. Mega evolutions).

I think Yveltal looks cooler though.
