Talk:Legendary Pokémon

On Bulbapedia, there is a section on Pseudo Legendaries. The list includes Dragonite, Tyranitar, Salamence, Metagross, and Garchomp. Now, I kind of agree with their section because all of them have legendary-like base stats of 600, and all of them are at the end of the Pokedex (excluding Garchomp, but that's because the legendaries in fourth generation are pretty messy.), so, what do you think? Should there be a sub section for the pseudo-legendaries? Yoshi Egg

First off, note that we're not taking any ideas from Bulbapedia - we are not Bulbapedia, we are not Wikipedia, we are not Wikia either - so don't assume that all things have to be the same globally. Second, no. Relmutsie AN 09:23, 21 August 2009 (UTC)

I'd agree with creating a page, it's very obvious which ones would fall under which category. Also we could note Arcanine as having a pokedex entry of being a legendary Pokemon. - O Origin

Should we just skip the list altogether? All this stuff it just annoying. Next we will get the argument about certern pokemon being legends and some not.Benedict talk 17:42, 22 August 2009 (UTC)


The reason lists are so pointless is because some informtation can be subject to change (particularly a list like this and the shipping list), and don't hold much information at all. That's why I don't like lists at all. They're for [byte] whores like Scorpia Agent/Constellation/Teri.

As for the original request, simply I don't approve of the idea of pseudo legendaries in the first place. My general definition of a legendary is that there is only one of them (with the exclusion of Rotom). I'll leave you to discuss it amongst yourselves though. I'm not an expert on competitive battling. Relmutsie AN 15:17, 23 August 2009 (UTC)

Heres my list of what I think to be legendery Pokemon:

The birds, beasts, regis, and pixies Latios and twin Groudon Rayquaza Deoxys Kyogre Jiruchi? Celebi Dialga Palkia Regigigas Arceus... dur Giratina Lugia Ho-oh

and all the other Pokemon that are a one shot and not rotom..., and look like legenderies.... oh I don't know. My suggestion: remove the list and write a page on legendery Pokemon instead... Benedict talk 19:03, 23 August 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Manaphy and Phione

btw, these arn't legends... Benedict talk 19:03, 23 August 2009 (UTC)

Well according to, they are legends:
"Because Phione is breeded from Manaphy, it is also considered a Legendary Pokémon." hugo07

And yet, a common characteristic of a legendary is that they can't breed? Relmutsie AN 19:52, 23 August 2009 (UTC)

Should we just, contact gamefreak or whatever, and tell them to get us a list? T_T Benedict talk 12:40, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

I thought it was a player made concept anyway. Relmutsie AN 21:29, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

Well, the anime talks about certain Pokémon being "deities" (whatever it is) or "legendery Pokemon" etc. Benedict talk 13:42, 25 August 2009 (UTC)

The anime is non-canon. Besides, they sometimes go against what the games do. Yoshi Egg
