Where is the X in Xerneas [Pokemon X]

Multiple places online have been trying to define where the X and Y come into play in the new Pokemon games. X is obviously the deer like Pokemon called Xerneas, while Yveltal is the flying bird like pokemon with the Wingspan and tail that looks like a Y.

It’s easier to see the Y in Yveltal, but most people have been trying to say that the antlers of Xerneas and his legs make the X. This isn’t true, if you look closely the X is in his eye. It’s not a big announcement or anything, but just something I’ve noticed.

If you haven’t seen the trailer for the next game, you can view it after the jump.

  1. Lol

    ”the X is in his eye’
    The only truth is that ”the antlers of Xerneas and his legs make the X” Because you saw the Y pokemon all spread, but you didn’t saw the X like that.
    Also, we had a closer look to the X but not to the Y. I bet Y has ”y” eyes too.

  2. Lol again

    The x is on the liber, we just can’t see it.
    Oh god. The X can’t be the eye, it HAS to be the general shape, otherwise is retarded
