No. 716: Xerneas

bitch got an entire christmas tree's worth of lightbulbs up on his head

also his legs are swords. that's pretty intense. anyway, we're entering the mercifully short group of legendaries for Gen 6. This one is supposed to look like an X, which it doesn't. Even from the front, it presents a more Y-shaped silhouette. so, whatever to that, I guess.

On one hand, I like it more than the other legendary deer we had. It looks appropriately fey and regal. and also, frikken sword-legs, man.

On the other hand, holy shits that is a lot of lights going on up there. I guess that's its gimmick, that it has literally 8 different colors upon its antlers, but I don't know if I like it. also, what the hell is even it's deal? like, we used to have legendaries that were just basically Rare Animals with elemental themes. Then we got ones that were guardians of forests, seas, mountains, etc. Then they became ancient primal forces governing Time, Space, and evil shadow dragons living in the Negative Dimension or whatever. Or maybe that was a Dr. Who plot. anyway, now it seems like we just have legendaries that are... legendary. For some reason. It's kind of getting back to the basics, but these guys have a shit-ton of power, because Lysander was using them for stuff, right?

I don't even know anymore, man. Xerneas is kinda neat, but also freaking insane at the same time. Maybe it just has a bad case of "being french"

Overall: 6/10


  1. Talk about "Neutral Mode" when its antlers are just blue

  2. Actually, the pupil in the eye is the 'X'
