Yes. One has to be the square of an odd number. The other square has to the the square of the even number either before or after the odd number. If this is confusing just plug in real values. In either case, an odd times and odd is odd. Therefore one of the squares has to be odd. AN even times an even, however, is always even. Therefore, the second square has to be even. Thus, one of the squares is even and the other is odd. An even plus and odd is always odd.

Square of any even counting number is always an even number and square of any odd number is always odd. Addition of even number and its square is always an even number because even + even results in even number and addition of odd number and its square is always an even number because odd + odd = even number. Since natural or counting numbers consists of only even and odd, which comes one by one after each other. So, according to the question and the given condition only one answer comes out which is an even number. e.g. let us take the counting number like 8, square of 8 = 82 =64 and addition of 8 and its square =8+64 =72 which is an even number.
