Yveltal (JP) is a species of Pokémon in the series of the same name. It is a dual-type Dark /Flying-type Legendary Pokémon that made its first appearance in the sixth generation games, X and Y. It is the mascot legendary of Pokémon Y. It is a member of the Aura trio with Xerneas and Zygarde.

Physiology and Behaviour

Yveltal is a large Pokémon with both avian and draconic traits. The back of its body is black with white spots along the wings and back; its front, head, and neck are bright red with branching, black lines throughout. It has a pointed, beak-like snout, bright blue eyes, a black, forward-curving horn over each eye, and a thin, antenna-like growth behind each eye. A feathery gray ruff encircles its neck and billows out over its back. Yveltal's wings each have three spikes along the bottom edge near the body and five large, black claws on the tip. It has small, birdlike legs with gray talons. Each foot has two toes facing forward and one pointing backward. Its tail is similar in structure to its wings, including the five claws on the tip.

Yveltal has the power to absorb life energy by spreading its wings and tailfeathers. When it reaches the end of its lifespan, it steals the life energy of everything around it and then transforms into a cocoon to sleep. Yveltal is the only known Pokémon capable of learning the move Oblivion Wing.

With its wings spread wide, this Legendary Pokémon looks just like the letter Y. Since its name also starts with the same letter, it's difficult to imagine a more appropriate mascot for Pokémon Y. Apparently, when Yveltal's life comes to an end, it will absorb the life force of all living things— here's to a long and healthy life!
