  1. Now that I know that Xerneas is a Fairy-type Pokémon, I’m not sure I want Yveltal! D:

    This is going to be a difficult decision, deciding whether I want Pokémon X or Y.

    Something tells me Gym Leader Shitoron with robot arms is going to use Steel-type Pokémon. :P

  2. I knew that there was a reason to like Xerneas. I am very happy that it is revealed to be a pure fairy-type Pokemon. All this other info is great as well.
