Some accounts I have heard simply state that Raikou, Entei and Suicune were, after their immolation, simply resurrected, not reincarnated. If that's the case, then they were Entei, Suicune and Raikou BEFORE the disaster, and so not CREATED by Ho-Oh - just related to him by the ordeal of these three individuals. I have no citation, so I did not add this to the article. SixthFlyingMan 09:28, 2 August 2008 (UTC)

Meh, speculation is speculation. Can't do much with it. Glinn Mgraw 15:09, 2 August 2008 (UTC)

Dogs or Cats

I think that personally the beasts deserve to be called dogs more simple because each of them bears a resemblance to a dog, Suicune I think is the most because of his face and body shape. Raikou defeneatly has a canine body but a more cat looking face with it's teeth making him look like a saber tooth tiger. Entei looks about the most cat like I think it looks like a giant cat or lion kind of thing.

Calling them the legendary dogs is not really a correct term and is more of just an opinion. in my opinion, i like the idea of legendary cats better, but calling them the legendary beasts is more of a correct and collective term. Raikou in no way looks like a canine. Suicune has a lean canine body but has small cat feet, and Entei has a dog body but has a lion's face. So, legendary beasts is a better grouped term to call the trio considering that at least suicune and entei look part canine and part feline; as well as the fact that some people see more canine features in their anatomy while others see more feline features in their anatomy. --いぬみみ 23:46, 5 December 2008 (UTC)

I know I was just wondering what everyone else thought, I think it is a good term for keeping the peace in pokemon. Something sorely needed since the whole voice change over thing. De Wolfy is here 18:05, 10 December 2008 (UTC)

"Beasts" is best, because there's just too much of a division amongst the fanbase as to which animal group they should be associated with, so it's best to keep it ambiguous. It's almost as bad as the Eeveelutions. Lucentas 18:10, 10 December 2008 (UTC)
Come on! You must be blind if you:
  • Don't see Raikou's extreme similarity with a saber tooth tiger
  • See Suicune's animated silhouette in the title screen of Crystal and don't think it runs exactly like a cheetah
  • Don't think that Entei roars like a lion and has a lion-like face Spideym 01:23, 30 May 2009 (UTC)

Trivia point

I just read in the trivia that each legendary beast is the physical form of one of the three events that happened at Brass Tower when it was destroyed; Raikou was the lightning stike, Entei was the fire that started, and Suicune was the rain that put out the flames. Is this true? Has it ever been mentioned anywhere else? Bttsstewart 10:54, 14 December 2008 (UTC)

It was mentioned somewhere in the Gold/Silver/Crystal games in Ecruteak City. I don't remember which person you have to talk to though. --いぬみみ 02:00, 15 December 2008 (UTC)
The legendary POKéMON are said to embody three powers… The lightning that struck the TOWER. The fire that burned the TOWER. And the rain that put out the fire…
This is said by a member of the Wise Trio in Pokémon Crystal after the player encounters Ho‐oh. IIMarckus 02:04, 15 December 2008 (UTC)

Oh, good. It's just, I treat fan assumptions with sceptism. Good to see its true. Bttsstewart 15:00, 14 January 2009 (UTC)


Who calls them "the Legendary Gerbils?" Sounds more to me like something that only the person who edited that in called them...Anyone know for a fact that "some circles" call them that? LordArceus 16:03, 15 December 2008 (UTC)

I could be wrong but i think the term came from the fact that fans were split between calling them the legendary dogs or the legendary cats. i guess some people thought, jokingly of course, that they might as well be called legendary gerbils because dogs, cats, and gerbils are all furry but there really isn't an opposite animal to gerbils. but again, it's just a term that was created from humor. --いぬみみ 22:45, 16 December 2008 (UTC)
I concur. theres no way that was in game or anime. no gerbilsDCM((曲奇饼妖怪Spy on My Edits))
I've seen it around on several forums and fan sites; it's just a humorous fanon term. Lucentas 22:53, 16 December 2008 (UTC)
I'm not 100% sure, but I believe that it was me who was the first to refer to them as legendary gerbils. I'm Missingno. Master. See my new and improved user page, and comment on it! 03:15, 17 February 2009 (UTC)
