That deer one looks a bit like the forest guardian from Princess Mononoke, minus the ugly face of course.

Money is on the bird one's name starting with an X and the Deer one with a Y...or maybe vice versa..

More Pokemon games... I guess we will never catch them all because there's always going to be more lol...

These ones look oddly familiar and look a lot like the creatures you see in the film Avatar. If you know Avatar you'll get what I mean.

Norse Mythology this time.

The Deer (X), Eagle (Y), and Dragon (Z) of Yggdrasil. We have the deer, and a vulture / egale. Missing the dragon (Maybe each of it's wings look like a Z, since the eagle is shaped like a Y, and the Deer has "X" for eyes).

They also tie in the the generations that play Pokemon. Generation X (1960's - 1980's), Generation Y (1980's - 2000), and the new Generation Z (2000 - 2020).

Finally they also represent a 3D plane, X-axis (X dimension), Y-axis (Y dimension), and Z-axis (Z dimension) which also ties in to the 3DS aka a 3D gaming platform.

Can't wait to see more.

No matter how many arguments you find, the name continues to be ridiculous. The first thing I thought when I heard X and Y was the human chromossomes lol

But it's obvious how the 3rd game will be called Z lol and that would just resemble the XYZ monsters from Yu-Gi-Oh as well.

The Japanese logo's for the game do indeed feature DNA helix's, so there's certainly a reference being made to chromosomes as well.

Norse Myth? I would've gone with Greek, with Artemis and Apollo being associated respectively with the Deer/Eagle and Femininity(X)/Masculinity(Y)

I gotta keep pressing the back button on my browser to see the next pic. Who in their right mind thinks that was a good web design choice?
