Pokemon X and Y's naming could be influenced by a number of factors. The most likely explanation is that the names are derived from the variables of the 3D Cartesian graphing system, which uses the points (x,y,z) to determine length, width, and depth of a 3D object. This ties into the fact that it is on the 3DS, which has 3D graphics and made Pokemon capable of using truly 3D graphics for the first time. Additionally, the legendary Pokemon Xerneas, Yveltal, and Zygrade had their names derived from this logic: look at the first letter of their names. This has led many to speculate about the possibility of a Pokemon Z expansion or sequel to Pokemon X/Y.
