Xerneas – ??????
Pokedex Number – ???
Type – ???

Pokedex Entry yet to be filled.

Physiology – Unknown

Behaviour – Unknown

Habitat – Unknown

Myths/Legends – Unknown



I am VERY excited for the new games. and frankly, Yvetal, for me, would be too clichéd for me personally to draw. a giant dragon..bird, Y thing.

but yes! Xerneas looks quite interesting, if not very ghibli-ish in design if you've seen mononoke's forest spirit, but i actually prefer this design.

Ive tried to push using less black in the painting overall here and use more colouring instead of being lazy, so i hope its paid off! I'll be sure to add in a proper pokedex entry when its actually...available. i have no knowledge what the antlers do, what the pokemon does and why its considered a legendary etc.. so i just went for something along the lines of the special antlers attract bug pokemon to it through beautiful colours (the glass like antler parts being a form of special bone that grows out of the pokemons skull ) I'll stop there because i have literally no idea where I'm going with it XD

I also added in butterfree, because I'm a free spirit.



I am well aware of what type and class Xerneas is now, yes. I just havent had time to change it and right a pokedex. I will get to it, but please stop reminding me XD

Do you have any intention of coming back to do the entry/lore for this one? I do love your writing and would love to see what you do with Xerneas.
