I know from elsewhere on this site that (in HGSS at least) if the legendary beasts are KO'd in battle, they can be 'revived' and battled again (for example, if you KO suicune, it'll keep reapearing in Burnt Tower until it's caught). I was just wondering which other legendaries can also be rebattled if they're KO'd? --[[User:Oatzy|Oatzy]] 23:56, 11 April 2010 (UTC)

:I believe it is any Pokémon that appears as a one-time capture, and you have to (re)battle the Elite Four in order to reset them. I know it works on Sudowoodo. On a similar note, I would like to know if its nature, IVs, etc. are reset when it reappears, particularly in regard to the roaming Pokémon. Giratina's stats were reset in Platinum. --[[User:JacobCrystal|JacobCrystal]] 19:33, 28 April 2010 (UTC)

Giratina controls dimensions? That's stupid... can somebody remove that? Time and Space (depth, lengh and width) are the freaking dimensions everyone! So Giratina has more power than both Dialga and Palkia? I think not. Remember that Giratina lives in the Distortion World... a place that disobeys the laws of Time and Space. hfc2X 22:26, 23 January 2009 (UTC)

There are 2 types of dimensions, matematical, which you were talking about, and spacial, which would be under Giratina's control. If you don't belive me, look up "Plane (metaphysics)" on Wikipedia. The dimensions that Giratina controls are alternate planes of exictence, also called dimensions!- unsigned comment from GuyNamedSean (talkcontribs)

It seems that Giratina can control gravity, or atleast that is how I enterpreted the explanation of its form shift. It also makes some sense because gravity could be considered a third factor in time-space Enigmaberry 02:29, 13 March 2009 (UTC)
I agree with hfc2X, this needs to be changed. It was never officially stated anywhere that Giratina controls dimensions or anything at all, really. If you guys are going to write up fan speculation, you can at least, you know, actually make a note of that. Marlowe 02:17, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
An additional note, after editing the page a few times I noticed that only established users are allowed to make changes, my mistake there. Still, this needs to be changed for accuracy. Marlowe 02:30, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
You do realize that this talk section is from BEFORE Platinum was released in English, right? R.A. Hunter Blade 02:34, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
What does that have to do with anything? Whether it's from one day or even five years ago, it doesn't change the fact that a change still needs to be made. As an encyclopedia, this doesn't need fanon crap. Marlowe 02:36, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
Because Platinum confirmed it. Duh. ~ platinumsol 02:37, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
Prove it, then. Marlowe 02:38, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
Disprove it, then. ~ platinumsol 02:39, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
It is also said in the Distortion World by Cyrus about Giratina's control over dimensions...I'm way, way ahead of that, otherwise I'd give you the exact quote.--PsychicRider 02:39, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
My bad. I forgot. Giratina can't go between dimensions, or drag people into the Distorted World, or anything like that. Sorry. I guess it has no real power. R.A. Hunter Blade 02:40, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
Spare me the reverse psychology, Sol, you said that Platinum confirmed it and I'm telling you to point to me where that was specifically confirmed. You're the one making false claims, not me. It was never stated that Giratina controls dimensions, this is FAN SPECULATION which is something that Bulbapedia frowns on if I'm not mistaken. At least it's something they should be frowning upon. Marlowe 02:45, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
If you can't prove that it hasn't been proved, then it's useless to try and say that it's fan speculation. PsychicRider has confirmed it, so no, it's not fan speculation. ~ platinumsol 02:46, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
Quit acting like a politician and disprove it. You're avoiding what somebody tells you that goes against what you're trying to say. R.A. Hunter Blade 02:49, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
Sol, you're the one who's in a position to prove something, not me. I basically asked "Where was that confirmed?" and you've yet to answer that question. I would like the specific quote of Cyrus stating this, though, as I don't recall it. Marlowe 02:53, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
I'm way past that, as in Battle Frontier past, but I do remember that it is confirmed from Cyrus's dialogue. --PsychicRider 02:59, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
So I'm apparently supposed to conveniently be at the point in time where Cyrus says that specific quote. ~ platinumsol 03:02, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
No, this isn't a perfect quote, but: "Hmm... so Giratina disappeared into the real world... it doesn't matter. I'll capture it, and then I'll use the dimensional powers of Giratina to form a new world here and destroy the real one." R.A. Hunter Blade 03:06, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
I believe that's the quote I was looking for...boys, we have our proof. :D. --PsychicRider 03:08, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
In that case (if that was explicitly stated), I stand corrected. Thanks. Marlowe 03:10, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
Don't mention it. It only took me 30 minutes to think of. R.A. Hunter Blade 03:13, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
Not to sound like a broken record here, but I've just gotten through the Distortion World on my second run-through and Cyrus doesn't make that statement anywhere. I even saved right before the battle with Giratina to see what Cyrus would say in both scenarios (catching Giratina or defeating it), but the dialogue only changes slightly and there's still no explicit mention of it having control over dimensions. Besides, aren't space and time dimensions as well? Judging from some of the official interviews on Giratina I've just read, I'm more inclined to say that Giratina simply controls antimatter. If I'm not mistaken, antimatter IS considered to be the third factor out of time and space, after all. I propose that we take "dimensions" out of the sentence. Marlowe 08:22, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
I watched a Youtube video and saw the same thing. But no. Dimensions isn't coming out. The descriptions aren't just for the games, but also the anime/movies you have to remember. R.A. Hunter Blade 12:30, 12 May 2009 (UTC)

Bubbly Mew

Wherever I go, whatever I read that's about Mew or the first movie, it says something like "The Bubbly Mew appeared in the first move", or something like that. Now, why is it called "Bubbly Mew" and why is it just the Mew in the first movie? And where did that term of Bubbly Mew ever come from?--DRAGONBEASTX 22:25, 6 February 2009 (UTC)

Maybe it's that the Mew in the first movie enjoyed making bubbles. SD13 Simpsondude13>SD13 Talk 20:44, 10 February 2009 (UTC)


Does Phione really count? And why not Unown? I always thought of the symbols as legends. Me and my fellow torchics agree on this - Sk8torchic

Phione counts because to get one you have to breed a legendary. Unown doesn't because it's extremely distant from any other legendary. Note the beasts and the birds. Sure they're separated by the powerhouses and events by Dratini and Larvitar's families, but they're next to each other and divided from the others by no more than three Pokémon. Unown has 50 down and 42 up. TTEchidna 23:41, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
So all legends have to be near each other in the pokedex? Since when? Me and my fellow torchics agree on this - Sk8torchic 16:07, 22 February 2009 (UTC)
Besides, nobody would buy Unown being legendary, what with how they're found all over the place in the Ruins of Alph, Tanoby Chambers, and Solaceon Ruins. Trust me, in the time it takes to breed for one Phione, odds are one could catch 2 PC boxes entirely full of Unown (although there's no guarantee that all 28 forms would be included)...--Shiningpikablu252 16:54, 22 February 2009 (UTC)

Can we really stop saying that Rayquaza is based on a Ziz

It really isn't. The closest thing we have to a bird whose wingspan is large enough to block out the sun is Lugia, atleast according to the accounts of an elderly NPC in Ecruteak city.--Outrage DD 22:05, 1 March 2009 (UTC)

Legendary Pokémon group picture

I made this: [1]

I think it'll be nice if it was placed in this article, next to (or instead of) that Entei pic.

Greetz, Abel

It's nice really but the thing is that the Johto legends will be getting new artworks soon and, maybe, the admins might not like the signature on the upper right. Also, Deoxys is actually shorter than Mewtwo. tc²₆tc26 12:33, 13 May 2009 (UTC)
Just a reminder that fan art, I think, is generally frowned on. While that is very impressive, we can't use it here. — THE TROM — 21:06, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

Latios and Latias

So I know that the current pic is better than the last, but I'm pretty sure it's fan made. And we aren't supposed to have fan pics on pages. R.A. Hunter Blade 21:06, 25 May 2009 (UTC)

Are you sure about that? That's the same font the Pokémon Company uses, it's in Sugimori's style, and it has his hanko on it...—Loveはドコ? (talk contribs) 22:31, 25 May 2009 (UTC)

Latios and Latias appear in a Johto-era movie because they needed to hype up Hoenn. Der. The Eon duo don't even appear in Johto in HGSS, they're roaming Kanto! And it's JOHTO, not Jhoto. TTEchidna 00:27, 3 December 2009 (UTC)

Trivia: Legendary Pokémon Themes

It should be noted that in the upcoming games, HeartGold and SoulSilver, that Lugia and Ho-Oh now both have their own, distinct themes in the upcoming games. It was confirmed on the "never before seen footage" on Pokémon Sunday where they revealed meeting Lugia and Ho-Oh in the games. :) From the small clips you can hear, Ho-Oh's theme seems to be very Japanese-percussion based (taiko drums) and Lugia's is very orchestral-dramatics based. - unsigned comment from Gimmetokyo (talkcontribs)

New article

Since the Legendary Trios and Duos have articles, should the Legendarys without a group (Trio Master's not included) get there own article too? - unsigned comment from Blackstone Dresden (talkcontribs)

If you mean Legendaries like Mew, Celebi, and Manaphy, then no. What would we write that isn't already on their own pages? R.A. Hunter Blade 04:16, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

I didn't place that one since one for the Azure Flute event would be better. It would be similar to Darkrai and Shaymin. tc²₆tc26 12:49, 13 August 2009 (UTC)
I'll put it in for now. We can always change it when the Flute event gets its own artwork. We're using the HGSS Beasts artwork aren't we? R.A. Hunter Blade 16:25, 13 August 2009 (UTC)


I can't edit, but one of you should include that they can be found in Sinnoh.--The Bulb's Master 12:44, 13 August 2009 (UTC) Master of Bulbasaur and Turtwig♀


Is the term "legendary" an official descriptor or one applied by the fandom? Redstar 23:55, 16 August 2009 (UTC)

Its official. It appears in the games, anime, and all sorts of sources. It even appears in some Pokédex entries. Blake Talk·Edits 01:38, 9 September 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, I've been playing Blue and the first instance of the term "legendary Pokemon" is on Route 14 by a Bird Keeper, for future reference. Redstar 03:45, 4 October 2009 (UTC)


"If you were looking for the "Legendary Pokémon" species, see Arcanine (Pokémon). " Why does it say that? What does it have to do with anything Qim1 00:05, 9 September 2009 (UTC)

Arcanine's species name is "Legendary Pokémon". In comparison, Bulbasaur's is "Seed Pokémon". Just on the off-chance that someone thinks Arcanine is actually a Legendary Pokémon, in the sense meant on this page. —darklordtrom 01:28, 9 September 2009 (UTC)
Arcanine is considered as legendary in Chinese... since many Pokédex entries says Arcanine is from China.Palkia38 07:09, 3 October 2009 (UTC)

Pokemon of Legend, Illusion, and Myth

Is there any source for these categories of legendaries? The main paragraph suggests the Japanese versions identify legendaries differently that was narrowed for translation... What Pokemon are in these various categories, and why? What exactly do the Japanese versions say? Redstar 03:48, 4 October 2009 (UTC)


This may meet with some dissent, but would Slowpoke or Slowking qualify under "Other Pokemon of myth"? Slowpoke is pretty dominantly featured in GSC and HG/SS, as well as the corresponding anime episode, as the savior of Azalea in time of need. He's practically worshiped there. I don't believe this story was ever explicitly stated as fact, but rather as a cultural legend of sorts. That means Slowpoke is featured in a legend, and so possibly counts as a low-tier legendary like Arcanine of Togepi.

Slowking may same to fit the position more, but the extent of its qualification are the second movie. I don't know if human speech, a knowledge of ancient prophecies, and a role in that prophecy coming true/being resolved counts as a legendary, but should also be considered.

So, what are the opinions on counting on or both as minor legendaries? I'll agree to any consensus, but just thought it would be worth bringing up since Slowpoke does garner some "It's a legendary" statements from time to time. Redstar 00:48, 11 October 2009 (UTC)

Pastoria worships Croagunk. Does that mean it's a minor legendary too? Slowpoke, as far as I know, only gets mentioned as legendary when people are being sarcastic.--Liquid ICE (User:Cold)(page, talk) 00:55, 11 October 2009 (UTC)
I was unaware of Croagunk's position in that area, though that does get me thinking... Slowpoke, Croagunk, and possibly some of the "Other Pokemon of myth" featured here might do well on a "Pokemon of cultural significance" kind of article. I expect gen 5 will introduce at least one new Pokemon that is treated similarly to these two, so at that time it might be feasible to make such an article. Redstar 00:58, 11 October 2009 (UTC)
We need more than two Pokémon of culutral significance to make it an article. —darklordtrom 01:02, 11 October 2009 (UTC)
Which is why I suggested waiting until gen 5 when another Pokemon may be featured. But, as it stands now, Arcanine, Ninetails, and the Togepi line are strong candidates for such an article. Note that "legendary" is as much a fan-term as a canon one, so creating a corollary term for culturally-significant Pokemon would be ideal as well as alleviate the constant arguing about who is and isn't a legendary, when frankly many of the supposed legendaries would make more sense in a culture article. Redstar 01:07, 11 October 2009 (UTC)

Unique Pokemon

So which Pokemon exactly are "unique" besides Mewtwo? I'm just curious. Also, has it ever been confirmed that Mewtwo is unique? '''LugiaRox''' 02:34, 23 October 2009 (UTC)
Well he is the first cloned legendary, first created legendary. But that's probably speculation.--Midnight Blue 03:49, 23 October 2009 (UTC)
Mewtwo is a special case. He's not even a "legendary" in the in-universe sense (no associated legends), only in the fanon sense. Discussing what other Pokemon are "unique" is beating a dead horse, since it's been done before and there's no way we can no for sure. Looking at it one way, nearly every Pokemon is unique, but in another way there's room for multiplies. Who knows? As for created Pokemon akin to Mewtwo, I'm sure that area will be explored at some point. Come gen 5, all the loose strings will be tired up. Redstar 03:55, 23 October 2009 (UTC)
I believe we could safely say that Arceus is unique. '''LugiaRox''' 05:07, 23 October 2009 (UTC)
Arceus is the personification of a concept. There could very well be more than one, with each being an avatar of an incomprehensible concept. It's called pantheism. Hindis practice it. Redstar 05:46, 23 October 2009 (UTC)
Hindu's you moron, hindi is the language they speak in india!--Minimag 05:14, 23 November 2009 (UTC)
Does it really matter? And the term "Hindi" also applies to Hindu literature and culture. Religion/mythology is within the scope of culture, so there you go. I know my use of language. Redstar 05:22, 23 November 2009 (UTC)
I thought it was polytheism. Anyways, in Hinduism concepts, gods are an aspect of Brahmna, the eternal being, which could be what Arceus could be based on, with the three major aspects of Brahma being legendary trios. Though I doubt this because Nintendo is based in Japan and not India. Turtwig A (talk | contribs) 00:31, 3 December 2009 (UTC)

(reset indent)

The non-uniques are:

Uknown, yet debateable:

  • Cresselia - If there's more than one Darkrai, why not Cresselia?
  • Heatran - Only one has appeared so far, and even then, it was in the distant past.
  • Jirachi - It came from space. We don't know if more are out there like Deoxys and Clefairy.
  • The legendary birds - Unlike the beasts, we don't know if there were only 3 specifically created, although it is probable that they're unique.
  • The legendary beasts- Although we know that Ho-Oh created 3 from the ashes of Pokémon, Suicune has appeared multiple times and sometimes in different regions. It has appeared in 3 episodes of the anime and one movie. The Entei in Spell of the Unown was only an illusion created by the Unown.


  • Mewtwo - It isn't actually a legendary in the anime, just a bad clone of one.
  • Ho-Oh - Even though its counterpart, Lugia, is known to be able to have offspring, Ho-Oh seems to be a single Pokémon that travels around.
  • Celebi - Although many appeared in Pokémon 4Ever, they were the same Celebi, just from different time periods. The past and future came together in the present.
  • Kyogre, Groudon, and Rayquaza - Kyogre and Groudon have appeared in the Team Magma and Team Aqua arc, and Kyogre has appeared in a movie or two. Rayquaza could be argued as having more than one in its species, but it is most likely the only one.
  • Azelf, Uxie, and Mesprit - They were created by Arceus to keep Dialga and Palkia in balance.
  • Dialga and Palkia - They are the keepers of time and space.
  • Giratina - It is the guardian of the Reverse World, an distorted mirror of the Pokémon world. Although it could be argued that because mirror dimensions exist, and there would be Reverse Worlds for each of these mirror dimensions, that is extremely technical and most likely won't be mentioned.
  • Arceus - Creator of the Pokémon universe. Not much more to say about that.

If that doesn't clear some things up, I don't know what will. R.A. Hunter Blade 22:49, 3 December 2009 (UTC)

Actually, there is no way that Celebi would be the same Celebi from different time periods (as most of those Celebi [those supposedly from the future] would also not exist if that were the case, since it died.). As for Groudon and Kyogre, it was heavily implied in the end of Scuffle of Legends that they went to sleep again for another age-long rest (almost eternal), and it was also implied that the orbs are the only way they can awake, so it's more likely that Kyogre, at least, has multiples (since unless someone had bonded with the Blue Orb, then Kyogre should not awake, and thus not appear in Movie 9 if it's the same one.). Rayquaza was also implied to be captured by Team Rocket, and it won't make any sense that Rayquaza would be around the atmosphere if it can't get out (which the scene of it's capture implies that it can't escape.) Dialga and Palkia, did they even recognize Ash and co. when they appeared in the Team Galactic Two-Parter? If not, they're definitely not one of a kind, and since Giratina is also part of the same trio, that means it has to have multiples as well. For the Three Pixies, if there are more than one Dialga and Palkia, there are definitely going to be more than one Pixie Trio. So far, the only pokemon to be completely confirmed to be one of a kind without a doubt is Mewtwo. If Arceus somehow appears later on and doesn't even recognize Ash and Co, then it's safe to say that Arceus is also not one of a kind. As for Ho-Oh, let's wait until Movie 13 before we can say that it's one of a kind (If it doesn't recognize Ash, then it's safe to say it's not one of a kind.). Weedle Mchairybug 02:15, 5 December 2009 (UTC)
Wow. I wasn't asking for a "Your wrong, stupid." type of response. We're trying to clear things up, not get into a fight. But since you want an argument for my point... For Celebi, the concept of time in the Pokémon universe, both games and movies, isn't immediate. In PMD2, you don't disappear right away. You still have like, a minute before you start to go away after correcting time. In Movie 12, it took forever for Ash and co. to nearly disappear, which they didn't. Celebi would have enough time to come back to heal itself. And who said it died anyways? It would also know when it would need to heal itself since it's a time travellor, and has basically the same powers that Dialga has, except they're not as massively powerful. There also isn't more than one Palkia, Dialga, or Arceus, as they're the only ones that are in existance. Dialga lives in a dimension outside of time, and Palkia controls all dimensions, except for Dialga's and Arceus'. It doesn't really matter if Palkia and Dialga recognize Ash and co. in the anime, because the anime =/= the movies. And from what I can tell, they don't do anything anyways. Cyrus captures them, and then the Lake trio free them and they go away. And there isn't more than one of each of the Lake trio, because there's... wait for it... three lakes for the three Lake guardians, and three gifts to humans. And so what if it appears that Team Rocket has Rayquaza? That was only in the intro to Movie 9 to show that there's evil in the Pokémon world. As for Groudon and Kyogre, again, anime =/= movies. Can't stress that enough. Those anime episodes were directly based off of R/S. There isn't any movie that's based specifically off of any part of a game. R.A. Hunter Blade 03:08, 5 December 2009 (UTC)
If Anime=/=Movies, then you shouldn't have even cited the movies in the first place (In other words, you shouldn't have cited Darkrai's appearances, as well as the other Legendary Pokémons appearances.). As for who said it had died, the mere fact that even the newly purified healing spring wasn't able to heal it implied that it had died. And for the record, I wasn't calling you stupid nor even implying that you were. And another thing, just because there are three lakes in Sinnoh that hold the pixie trio does not mean that there cannot be more than one Pixie trio. It was earlier implied that there was only one Mew left in existance, yet it was later made clear that there were actually two mews. Weedle Mchairybug 03:42, 5 December 2009 (UTC)
Isn't there more than one Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina because of every Gen. IV game having them, but in different ways. HeartGold and SoulSilver has Arceus create one on the spot while DPPt has one already there. Doesn't that mean they are debatable? Turtwig A (talk | contribs) 02:23, 13 December 2009 (UTC)
I really don't think any of this matters actually. The only part that talks about unique legendaries, other than that one sentence, is the bottom where it lists the different in-battle music. I would say more, except I know Mchairybug will contradict everything I say. That's why I've stopped talking about it. R.A. Hunter Blade 05:09, 13 December 2009 (UTC)


We can only say without a doubt that Mewtwo is unique in the anime. Arceus, the dragon trio, and the lake trio are presumed due to their link to the universe's creation. The rest, we can't say definitively, though we can more or less assume there's been only one Ho-Oh we've ever seen (Ash indicates it), and the weather trio's important roles also seem to point to there being only one of each.

Also, don't, don't think in the game sense in the anime. Also, the movies are canon, Ash-haters, find another thing he's not worthy of to rip on him for... like Gible or something. TTEchidna 09:01, 15 December 2009 (UTC)

Wobbuffett in the trivia section

Wobbuffett is not a legendary, but it along with Garchomp are the only non-legendary pokémon to be considered uber in competitive battling - unsigned comment from Rocklee clone (talkcontribs)

Trivia; Other languages

So, I was looking on the French analog site (Poképédia) and noticed that there are only six legendaries that have had their name changed. (As far as I can tell, only a few of the non legendary pokémon retain the same english name.) They are: Zapdos (Électhor), Moltres (Sulfura), and Articuno(Artikodin); and Azelf(Créfadet), Mesprit(Créfollet), and Uxie(Créhelf). Does this count as trivia?--Lamb(talk) 00:34, 27 February 2010 (UTC)

This is already mentioned in the article's trivia section.;)--Beligaronia (talk) 01:14, 27 February 2010 (UTC)
Whoops. Didn't see that.--Lamb(talk) 06:02, 27 February 2010 (UTC)

In Game Re-battle

I know from elsewhere on this site that (in HGSS at least) if the legendary beasts are KO'd in battle, they can be 'revived' and battled again (for example, if you KO suicune, it'll keep reapearing in Burnt Tower until it's caught). I was just wondering which other legendaries can also be rebattled if they're KO'd? --Oatzy 23:56, 11 April 2010 (UTC)

I believe it is any Pokémon that appears as a one-time capture, and you have to (re)battle the Elite Four in order to reset them. I know it works on Sudowoodo. On a similar note, I would like to know if its nature, IVs, etc. are reset when it reappears, particularly in regard to the roaming Pokémon. Giratina's stats were reset in Platinum. --JacobCrystal 19:33, 28 April 2010 (UTC)

Champion Cynthia's team.

Did anyone else notice the groupings in ?

Out of the eleven bullet points on that list, Cynthia uses pokemon from five points, exactly one pokemon for each of those five points. The groupings aren't exactly hewn in stone, though, so it's hardly trivia worthy. --PLA 09:26, 24 April 2010 (UTC)
