That will be fun to pronounce

Did you see the Pokemon X and Y 3DS announcement? Three new starter Pokemon, a fully 3D world, around 700 Pokemon to catch, and of course, new Legendary creatures.

We got a quick look at the two Legendary Pokemon at the end of the trailer, but were left clueless as to their names Not anymore! The one that looks like a space deer is called Xerneas (ZURR-nee-us), and the red bird is called Yveltal (ee-VELL-tall).

Videogame news, y'all.
