When this legendary Pokémon's wings and tail feathers spread wide and glow red, it absorbs the life force of living creatures.
When its life comes to an end, it absorbs the life energy of every living thing and turns into a cocoon once more.

In the anime

Yveltal is set for an anime appearance in M17 along with Xerneas and Diancie.

In the manga

Yveltal battled Xerneas and destroyed X and Y's hometown, Vaniville Town.


  • Yveltal is the fourth Pokémon to start with a Y, the others being Yanma, Yanmega and Yamask and the first Legendary to do so.
  • Yveltal is opposing Xerneas due to Xerneas representing life and Yveltal representing destruction.[1]
  • Yveltal's design looks similar to Lugia's but with the color scheme of Groudon.
  • Yveltal resemble Rathalos from the Monster hunter series.
  • Yveltal has its own signature move, Oblivion Wing.

Yggdrasil Tree

  • Its form may be a reference to Norse mythology guardians of the Yggdrasil tree: a bird-like creature that protects the top of the tree, this may be Yveltal, a deer-like creature that protects the soil and trunk of the tree, this may be Xerneas, and a snake-like creature that protects the underworld below the tree is Zygarde. It is part of Yggdrasil Trio.[2]
  • Yveltal starts with the letter Y because it represents the Y axis in the 3D axis of X, Y and Z.
