Default Non-Legendary/Pseudo-Legendary Pokemon that SHOULD be Legendary!

Which non-legendary or pseudo-legendary (Metagross, Garchomp, Salamence, Dragonite, Tyrannitar) do you think should be legendary?

I believe the following should be legendary or have some other legendary status;

Lapras
Absol
Unown
Rotom
Spiritomb
Ninetails
Lucario


Mainly, out of these, I believe Unown should be legendary. The Unown are Pokemon of myth, and are more enigmatic and sacred than other legendary Pokemon. They are based off of the Latin alphabet, and are able to grant the wishes of whoever controls them. They can do more things than Jirachi can be asked for. They have their own dimension. They should be legendary!

What other Pokemon do you believe should be legendary?

Unknown should be. It always seemed legendary to me. Kind of mysterious.

Arcanine was going to be legendary, but they scrapped the idea. Ninetails is a legend in PMD why not in the standard games. Every one you stated should be as well.

None of the pokes you have listed deserve legendary status, because they are numberless and common. All of those pokes can either be bred or caught in the wild in limitless numbers. The primary trait all legendaries share is that they are one-of-a-kind, an aspect that none of your pokes have.

When I saw that you made this thread, I knew I'd expect to see Lapras on that list :P

Unown is way too common to be legendary

I only have one Pokemon in mind: Ditto

If it can change into anything, including legendaries, wouldn't that make it the ultimate legendary?

Unown actually can't breed. As stated in the ninth movie, there were more than one Manaphy, and in the games, there were more than one Phione. There are more than one of each kind, I do believe. Like the time Charizard fought Anabel's Articuno. And when Brenden had those Regis. They were different from the ones in the movies. Therefore, only few legendary Pokemon are one-of-a-kind.

Lapras actually does deserve legendary status; it is one of very few Pokemon (mostly being legendary Pokemon) that can speak via telepathy. It is also exceedingly rare, much to the extent of the legendaries.

Who said that all Pokemon can reproduce by breeding? There's a few I can think of that don't need to breed in order to reproduce, such as Muk

That was true only in 1st and 3rd gen

In the 2nd, it could be found every Friday

In the 4th, you can get it anytime

Yes, I knew that too, but Ditto is way too common, it can copy anything, but yet it can be found in a specific area, and you can get many of them

It should be fair if you can only obtain one of those 'universal breeders'

Here is my argument, and this is not my thread: http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/foru...yl#post1478059

I also made a thread just like this here: http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/foru...te#post1756797. So don't let other users get off topic about predictions of new Pokemon, or your thread will get locked.

Read my post again, I said if they can breed or be found in limitless quantities. Unown is categorized as the latter.

As stated in the ninth movie, there were more than one Manaphy, and in the games, there were more than one Phione.

The movies and the games are made by different people- gamefreak who are the creators and production companies who have bought the movie rights. As such inconsistencies rise, and the original creators always take precedence. As such manaphy is deemed legenday but I agree with that phione is not under my own criteria. Besides, their status is not what we are discussing, but rather the somewhat strange list you constructed.

There are more than one of each kind, I do believe. Like the time Charizard fought Anabel's Articuno. And when Brenden had those Regis. They were different from the ones in the movies. Therefore, only few legendary Pokemon are one-of-a-kind.

As I said before, games>>>anime. Besides, even by anime standards all definate legends are exceedingly rare while most of your list is commonplace in the pokemon world


Lapras actually does deserve legendary status; it is one of very few Pokemon (mostly being legendary Pokemon) that can speak via telepathy. It is also exceedingly rare, much to the extent of the legendaries.

Why lapras and not alakazam and other pokes with extreme intelligence? And don't pull the rarity card, as it can breed as well as the rest of them.

So yeah, your pokes are still mundane.

Ditto is also way too common.

Even though there are multiples of some Legendary Pokemon, their numbers are still limited. Only those that you can easily get an unlimited number of without resetting the game are definitely confirmed to be Legendary Pokemon. And Pokemon such as Lapras and Unown fall under that category.

Also, just because a Pokemon can speak via telepathy doesn't mean that it must be Legendary Pokemon.

Too late. >_>

What is definitely fair is for everyone to have an equal chance of getting them. Their fault if they don't take it.

Actually, it's very much true that multiples exist for some Legendary Pokemon. For starters, 2 Mews can already be gotten in Generation I games.
