we’re halfway through! also a bit of trivia: this is the first Legendary to appear on this list.
today, i bring you Zygarde, a new legendary Pokemon from X and Y. thus far, Xerneas, Yveltal and Zygarde are my favorite legendary trio to date. all of their designs are really cool, and i love how they’re based on the Nordic myth of Yggdrasil, while also incorporating the X, Y and Z axes, which fit their respective habitats(it’s also extremely fitting because these are the first Pokemon games in full 3D). it’s all really clever and all i wish is that the mythology behind these three is fleshed out a little bit more in the inevitable Z version.
more on Zygarde itself, the main reason i like it is just how alien
it is. the sporadically flashing lights, the weird tombstone-things on its back, the utter lack of any relatable face or even eyes… it just feels very distant and inhuman unlike other Pokemon who lack human qualities or features. and something about that makes it really cool to me.
honorable mentions: Nincada, Garchomp, Golurk
