The lights are on
After yesterday's announcement and trailer for Pokémon X and Y, Nintendo has followed up with a little bit more information. The legendary Pokémon featured in the trailer now have names.
The one above that looks like a giant Y is called Yveltal (pronounced ee-VELL-tall), and the one below that looks like the Deer God from Princess Mononoke is called Xerneas (pronounced ZURR-nee-us). Nintendo also passed along a full press release for the game, which you can see after the jump below.
Pokémon X and Y will release worldwide in October, 2013. Head here to see the original announcement and trailer, learn about the new starters, and hear a few details about the game from the director of consumer marketing for the Pokémon company international, J.C. Smith.

Still think the X one Xerneas is a really amazing design, and one of the best looking legendaries to date. The antlers are awesome as heck, and it looks way better than the legendaries from B&W.
Against all odds, I think I might actually want this game...
