I'm reaching ( Because I have nothing else to do at this point) but maybe the S\M mascots are both based on those two wolves from Norse mythology
You mean the colours in the background, yes? Cuz I wouldn't call those flames yet (the same way, for example, there are flames in OR's box background.
I don't... get it.....?Is it just me, or..
Your points are good, and you're theory on the Celtics seems to hold some truth, but I wouldn't discount the Norse myths entirely. We still have the tree which is literally Xerneas, and Midgard ~ Zygarde... Okay not much, but I'm probably forgetting some stuff.Norse mythology for the XY legendaries is a far from proven fan theory. In my opinion, that theory was dealt two major blows:
1)The new zygarde forms have nothing at all to do with a serpent, or any other yggdrasil animal.
No, I think the Norse theory was overactive fan imagination from the start.
Yes, this, basically. I think that's especially the case for XY and onwards: they may have visited France but also other places nearby, possibly many European countries, and they added their own twists and take on the different histories they encountered, and voila.I think it's a pretty safe bet that GameFreak took influence from many cultures in making the XY legendaries, that they have aspects of Celtic, Norse and Japanese or other Asian mythologies.
