* {{Nerf}}: Pre-emptively. The transition to Gen VI caused Steel to lose its resistances to Dark and Ghost, giving the line 2 weaknesses it wouldn't have had if it debuted in a previous generation.

* AchillesHeel: It has a rather glaring double weakness to Ice, which will deal 4x damage to it. Even with it's Complete Forme's massive bulk, Ice attacks are still going to hit it incredibly hard.

** Closely observing its Thousand Arrows and Thousand Waves attacks shows that it fires its cells before recombining them for the former, and coalesces them into a massive wave for the latter.



** ''Sun and Moon'' added [[YouWillNotEvadeMe Thousand Waves]], [[RainOfArrows Thousand Arrows]], and [[PowerNullifier Core Enforcer]].[[labelnote:*]]Well, technically ''X and Y'' had the first two, but [[DummiedOut they weren't usable without hacking/random chance]].[[/labelnote]] The first two are green colored Ground-type moves that work like Land's Wrath, but thematically invoke Xerneas and Yveltal respectively. Core Enforcer is a Dragon-type move that works like its other Secret Arts, but will also negate the target's Ability if they've already used a move.

** ''Sun and Moon'' added a couple:
*** First off is its new ability Power Construct, which causes it to enter its 100% form when it is at half health or less.
***
[[YouWillNotEvadeMe Thousand Waves]], a herd-hitting Ground attack which deals damage and prevents foes from fleeing.
***
[[RainOfArrows Thousand Arrows]], a unique herd-hitting Ground attack which has the distinction of not only being able to hit Flying-types or floating Pokemon (who normally NoSell Ground moves), but actually shoot them down and ground them to remove their immunities.

* FailureIsTheOnlyOption: People with certain Patterns on the GTS have a '''sickeningly''' high chance to ask for event legendaries, which are incapable of being traded over, in effortless hopes to complete the Dex this way.

* GlassCannon: Aegislash in Sword Forme has very high Attack and Special Attack comparable to OlympusMons, but it will fold to any moderate hits due to its low defenses. In fact, Aegislash's Sword Forme boasts ''the'' single highest Special Attack of all non-Legendary and non-Mega-Evolved Pokémon in the game ''period'' before Gen 7, with an ''utterly monstrous'' 150[[note]]To give one an idea, all the other Pokémon with 150 Special Attack are: Primal Groudon, Primal Kyogre, Rayquaza, Normal Forme Deoxys, Dialga, Palkia and Reshiram[[/note]].

The legendary duo of ''Pokémon X'' and ''Pokémon Y''. The life-granting Xerneas resembles a large blue deer with elaborate antlers and acts as the mascot of ''Pokémon X'', while the destructive Yveltal resembles a horned vulture with huge claws on its wings and tail and acts as the mascot of ''Pokémon Y''. Three thousand years ago, one of the two was used to power AZ's ultimate weapon, which had the power to bring back life by taking many more. Xerneas and Yveltal may enter a dormant state once their energy has been spent, with Xerneas taking on the form of a tree while Yveltal resembles a cocoon. Alongside the starters, Xerneas and Yveltal were the first Generation VI Pokémon revealed to the public.

* RecurringElement: Legendary version mascots tied into the plot and into the scheme of the evil team. They're also the second duo of cover legendaries after [[VideoGame/PokemonBlackandWhite Reshiram and Zekrom]] to represent some version of light and darkness, complete with light-up "powered-up" modes.

* WeakButSkilled: Relatively, compared to the previous legendaries. On paper, Yveltal and Xernas lack the raw power most legendaries before them had. Their abilities, combined with movepools almost perfectly designed to abuse them, however, make them as, or even ''more'' threatening to face in battle.

Zygarde is the third legendary found in the Kalos region, resembling a green and black serpent with hexagon patterns, said to bring order between Xerneas and Yveltal. Zygarde, much like Rayquaza, Giratina, and Kyurem, has multiple formes. Each forme is made up of a combination of Zygarde Cells and its "brain", Zygarde Cores. While it usually remains in its serpent-like 50% Forme, in emergencies it can send out a single Core as its 10% Forme, which resembles a dog, and in grave situations it can combine with other Cells and Cores to attain its Complete Forme, which is the most humanoid, but is also gigantic and otherworldly.

* BreakingOldTrends: Unlike its predecessors and successor, Zygarde is (so far) the ''only'' third legendary trio member that didn't receive a game it was a mascot of. It got an appearance in ''Sun/Moon'', but no Gen VI game centered around it was made. At least the animé picked up the slack with ''XY&Z''.

** Though Zygarde has a Shiny skin like all Pokémon, every game it's obtainable in to date has shiny-locked it, preventing it from being caught in those colors. However, an event in 2018 allowed players to download a Shiny Zygarde.



** Like Rayquaza, Giratina, and Kyurem, Zygarde is the third Dragon legendary in a trio that is found post-game. Zygarde also continues the tradition set by Rayquaza and Giratina, the one who acts to correct any damage caused by the other Legendaries of its generation, and like Giratina and Kyurem, its 'true' form is not shown in the games that its counterparts mascot for.
** A third legendary related to the title legendaries who, when "complete", incorporates elements of the other two in its design. Are we talking about Kyurem or Zygarde? The only real difference here is that Zygarde doesn't physically incorporate Xerneas and Yveltal, and it has one complete design that reflects ''both'' of them at once with one blue and one red wing.

* TookALevelInBadass: Zygarde is weaker than its legendary brethren and has an Ability that is useless when they're not around (and outright detrimental if they're on Zygarde's side in a Double Battle), but that all changes once it becomes Complete, becoming much stronger than them.

* KingMook: It's a much stronger, transformed Carbink with a slightly different movepool. The only difference stat-wise is that Diancie has higher offenses. Diancie is highly unusual in that it's both the only Legendary known to evolve or transform from a common Pokémon [[spoiler:(at least before Solgaleo and Lunala were revealed to be evolutions of Cosmog, and even then Cosmog's nowhere near as common as Carbink)]] AND it's one of the few cases where two different Pokémon are known to be directly related via a transformation or evolution that is unavailable for players to trigger in any way.

* SecretArt: The Eternal Flower Floette is the only Pokémon to get the move Light of Ruin, the strongest Fairy-type move in the game (beating out Magearna's Fleur Cannon by ten points) which heavily damages the target, but inflicts recoil equal to half the damage dealt. The family's two possible abilities (Flower Veil and Symbiosis) used to be exclusive to them until Generation VII.
