So. I think Xerneas is going to basically be the ancestor of all mammals, where Yveltal is going to be the ancestor of all egg-laying species, (even though ALL species lay eggs in Pokémon).
Also, Xerneas will be female, while Yveltal will be male. Xerneas is MOTHER Nature in this game. Even though both genders have the X chromosome, if any gender, it should be female, otherwise what I said is only half right.

(these are all guesses, nothing confirmed)

one pokemon you're never going to use in the first place shouldn't determine which version you buy

That's what I was trying to tell Zero.
It's better to go by the other version exclusives rather than the legendaries.

I use Pokemon Showdown. There, they create their own Pokemon for use in the Create a Pokemon tier. Chances are, they'll create their very own sprites for Gen 6 Pokemon. These sprites actually aren't that bad.

Example:



They're actually discussing it in the forums as we speak over at Smogon. It's really the only way they can keep their community up to date with Generation 6.

Yeah they have really high standards. I really can't blame them.

They ignore what they call "flavor" and focus only on competitive - they're not designing Pokemon they're designing machines.

When everyone was talking about giving Arumoth Punch, Kick, and Tail attacks, I was like... what

They literally deleted every suggestion post I made

Plenty of Pokemon have punch/kick/tail attacks that probably shouldn't.

Still, you're mostly right.

Wrong. Only example they were able to muster up was Wooper who has no arms yet uses punches. Literally their only example.

Other than that, there aren't many.

Arcanine and Staraptor both learn Close Combat. Which is animated as a bunch of fists. There are other moves I'm sure I'm forgetting, but yeah. I'm not trying to say its common, just that it happens. I retract my use of the word "plenty".

Close Combat's name doesn't imply fists/feet/tail though, that's just how the animation is. I guarantee in XY they'll fix that with a different animation for each Pokemon.

I get that it's there but it's mostly oversights and it's super rare. But over at CAP, they use that ONE example to justify ignoring all standards.

The move description is "The user fights the foe up close without guarding itself". It's vague. I get that. Still, those two are the only ones that learn it that don't have fists.

Again, it's not a "Punch" move. It's also not one of the ones they used to justify their choices, they only sited Wooper. Their mindset is that "well, one pokemon out over over 600 broke the rules, so we can." They're not designing Pokemon, they're designing competitive machines, and as nice as the designs are, it makes the whole project vastly disappointing.
