{{nihongo|'''Legendary Pokémon'''|伝説のポケモン|''Densetsu no Pokémon''}}, as the name suggests, are Pokémon of special legends. They can also be Pokémon illusions. They are very rare and powerful Pokémon, most being unique to only one region. Legendary Pokémon can also be seen as mythological, such as the [[Sinnoh]] Legendaries that shaped the world. Legendary Pokémon can only be found once per game file (unless using a cheating device). In the show it is assumed that there are more than one of each legendary throughout the Pokémon World. They are easy to beat but at a high level and hard to catch.

{{nihongo|Legendary Pokémon|伝説のポケモン|Densetsu no Pokemon|literally meaning; "Pokémon of Legends"}} are extremely rare and mostly powerful Pokémon which they are also called to be as {{nihongo|'''Pokémon Illusions'''|幻のポケモン|Maboroshi no Pokemon|literally meaning; "Phantom Pokémon"}}. Legendary Pokémon are unique in each and every region in the Pokémon series and also beloved by criminal organizations such as [[Team Rocket]] which they believe that with their power they can control the world. Legendary Pokémon can also be seen as mythical Pokémon, such as the [[Sinnoh]] Legendaries that shaped the world. In the Pokémon anime it can be assumed that there are more than one legendary Pokémon. Legendary Pokémon are extremely hard to capture but they can be easily defeated in the video games. Each and every Legendary Pokémon in the series are extremely hard to capture, only if you don't count the [[Master Ball]]s. As in [[Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire]] while accessed from [[Eon Flute]], the non-event Legendary Pokemon were now obtainable.

The {{nihongo|Mew Duo|ミュウデュオ|Myū Duo}} or also known as {{nihongo|DNA Duo|DNAのデュオ|DNA Duo}} are the two legendary Pokémon [[Mewtwo]] and [[Mew]]. [[Mewtwo]] is the clone of [[Mew]], one of the [[Mythical Pokémon]]. It is known that Mewtwo was given birth to by Mew by researchers after obtaining Mew's DNA. Mewtwo is created in a Pokémon Mansion on [[Cinnabar Island]] also known is that the Cinnabar Island [[Gym Leader]] [[Blaine]] also had something to do with the cloning of Mew. Unfortunately, Mewtwo was an angry Pokémon and it destroyed the Pokémon Mansion. After that Mewtwo travelled to the [[Cerulean Cave]] and is currently residing there.
  +
Strange knowing is that Mewtwo is actually the clone of Mew, but Mewtwo comes first in the Pokédex. Mewtwo number in the National Pokédex is #150, that of Mew is #151. It can be because Mew is a mythical Pokémon and it is rarely seen by humans while Mewtwo has been created by humans through DNA. Also Mew wasn't legitimately available in the Generation 1 games although was mentioned in journals in the Pokémon mansion, and all references to the number of Pokémon in the region state there are 150 not 151, Mew's Pokedex number is 151.
   
Despite being Mew's clone, Mewtwo actually comes first in the Pokédex. Mewtwo is #150 in the National Pokédex and Mew is #151
+
Generation VI introduces [[Mega Pokémon]], a new type of evolution. The Genetic Pokémon Mewtwo is able to Mega Evolve into two different Mega Pokémon depending on the version of the game. He can turn into [[Mega Mewtwo X]] using a Mewtwonite X- which is available in ''X'' version, and [[Mega Mewtwo Y]] using a Mewtwonite Y - which is available in ''Y'' version. Mega Mewtwo X is a dual {{Type|Psychic}}/{{Type|Fighting}}-type while Mega Mewtwo Y retains Mewtwo's pure {{Type|Psychic}} nature. The ability and stats of Mega Mewtwo also differs between versions.
&nbsp;
 
===== Anime Appearances =====
 
Mewtwo made brief appearances in ''The Battle of the Badge'', ''Showdown at the Poké-Corral'' and ''It's Mr. Mime Time''. In the anime, Mewtwo escaped after being used in Giovanni's arsenal for Gym battles. It also plays the main role in the Special Episode ''Mewtwo Returns. ''

The {{nihongo|Tower Duo|タワーデュオ|Tawā Duo}} are the two legendary bird-like Pokémon, [[Ho-Oh]] a Fire/Flying dual-type Rainbow Pokémon and [[Lugia]] a Psychic/Flying dual-type Diving Pokémon. Ho-Oh and Lugia are considered to be a legendary duo Pokémon in the Johto region. Ho-Oh is known as "the guardian of the skies" and Lugia is known as "the guardian of the seas". Ho-Oh was the first legendary Pokémon that has been appeared in the anime, it appeared in the very first episode of the Pokémon series, however at the time Ho-Oh had not been officially announced and wasn't identified in the episode.
   
===== Anime Appearances =====
+
The history of Ho-Oh and Lugia are similar, long time ago two towers were built in Ecruteak City, the [[Bell Tower]] and the [[Brass Tower]]. Ho-Oh resides in the Bell Tower while Lugia resides in the Brass Tower. Several years later, the Brass Tower was caught in a great fire causing Lugia to flee the tower to the Whirlpool Islands, however three Pokémon were trapped inside (the Legendary Beasts), Ho-Oh stayed to revive them. The sudden burn of the Brass Tower caused Ho-Oh also to flee away to search for a pure-hearted trainer. In the video game series, Ho-Oh is the main mascot of the [[Pokémon Gold and Silver|Pokémon Gold]] series and Lugia is the main mascot of the [[Pokémon Gold and Silver|Pokémon Silver]] series. However there is a change in both of the games if it goes about how to obtain them. In Pokémon Gold video game you can capture Ho-Oh after obtaining the Rainbow Wing after that you've disbanded Team Rocket from the Radio Tower, but in Pokémon Silver after defeating the Pokémon League you can obtain the Rainbow Wing from a citizen in [[Pewter City]]. In Pokémon Crystal you will obtain the Rainbow Wing after capturing all the three legendary Pokémon: Raikou, Entei and Suicune. In the Pokémon Silver video game you can capture Lugia after obtaining the Silver Wing after that you've disbanded Team Rocket from the Radio Tower, but in Pokémon Gold and Pokémon Crystal after beating the Pokémon League you can gain the Silver Wing from a citizen in [[Pewter City]]. You can obtain Ho-Oh in Pokémon Gold at the Bell Tower and Lugia at the [[Whirl Islands]].
The three Legendary Beasts have appeared together in the movie Zoroark: Master of Illusions as the guardians of Crown City. In the movie they appeared as Shiny Pokémon. They all have had solo appearances in movies and specials (Not including Raikou who has never made an solo movie appearance). However, each beast did, in fact, make at least one appearance in the anime.
 
Entei appeared in ''Entei at Your Own Risk''.
 
Raikou briefly appeared in ''Houndoom's Special Delivery''.
 
Suicune appeared the most out of all the beasts, being in three episodes: ''Don't Touch That 'Dile'', ''For Ho-Oh the Bells Toll'', and ''Drifloon on the Wind!''. Entei also appeared in the movie The Spell of The Unown as the Unown's illusion. Raikou played a very important role in some Pokémon Chronicles episodes. Suicune also played an important role in the movie Pokémon 4Ever.
 
   
==== '''The Tower Duo''' ====
+
Ho-Oh and Lugia also reappear in the [[Pokémon LeafGreen and FireRed]] and [[Pokémon Emerald]] series but throughout an event. Ho-Oh and Lugia both are located at [[Naval Rock]] through the MysticTicket. Lugia plays a major role in the [[Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness]] video game series as [[Shadow Lugia]], this Lugia could be purified, contrary to what many people thought at first. Ho-Oh can be obtained in [[Pokémon Colosseum]] for purifying all shadow Pokémon in the vide game. Ho-Oh and Lugia also re-appear in the [[Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver]] video game series, the plot of to face them has been remained the same but in order to obtain Lugia required a Silver Wing and also a Tidal Bell, in order to obtain Ho-Oh it requires a Clear Bell and Rainbow Wing. It is said that Ho-Oh will give a person eternal happiness if someone sees him.
Ho-Oh and Lugia are two legendary bird-like Pokémon that were[[File:Tower Guardians.png|thumb|330px|Ho-Oh and Lugia]] introduced in Johto, although technically Ho-oh is introduced in the very first anime episode, when [[Ash Ketchum]] sees it. [[Ho-Oh]] is a Fire/Flying type Pokémon, while [[Lugia]] is a Psychic/Flying Pokémon.
 
   
The history of Ho-Oh and Lugia are similar. Long ago, two towers were built in Ecruteak City. Ho-Oh perched on the top of one tower (Bell Tower), while Lugia perched on the other one (Brass Tower). However, several years later, the Brass Tower was caught in a great fire, causing Lugia to fly away to the Whirl Islands and this also made Ho-Oh fly away to search for a pure-hearted trainer.
+

The Lake Trio consists of [[Uxie]], [[Azelf]] and [[Mesprit]]. When the universe was created, Arceus created Pokémon to protect and embody spirit. As a result, Uxie was created to protect and embody knowledge, Azelf was created to protect and embody willpower and Mesprit was created to protect and embody emotion.
+

Buck takes the Magma Stone but later returns it after being told to from his grandfather. After the Magma Stone has been returned to Stark Mountain, Heatran is available for capture. In Pokémon Platinum there is a slight change, [[Charon]] a former member of Team Galactic plans to take the Magma Stone from Stark Mountain and use it to control Heatran in order to get citizens of Sinnoh to give him money by threatening them with Heatran's volcanic powers, but his plan is thwarted when [[Looker]] interferes. Heatran is available for capture after the player stops Charon's plan. Heatran does re-appear again but in [[Pokémon Black and White Version 2]]. You must have a Magma Stone that is located at Route 18 which you must bring it to Reversal Mountain, once doing you will meet Heatran there.
   
In the games, [[Team Galactic]]'s Commanders capture the Lake Trio for Cyrus and he uses their powers to craft a Red Chain in order to take control of Dialga in Pokémon Diamond or Palkia in Pokémon Pearl and recreate the universe without spirit. In Pokémon Platinum, the Lake Trio's role is extended. When Cyrus takes control of [[Palkia]] and [[Dialga]], the Lake Trio try to stop them, but their power is not enough to do so. The Lake Trio also helps the player in the Distortion World to reach [[Giratina]].

  +

  +
The members of the Yggdrasil Trio consist of [[Xerneas]], a [[Fairy]]-type Pokemon, [[Yveltal]], a Dark/Flying-type Pokémon, and [[Zygarde]], a Dragon/Ground Pokemon. While Yveltal and Zygarde are dual type Pokemon, Xerneas is the only member of the Yggdrasil Trio that is not. 
   
====Anime Appearances====
+
Two of the legendary Pokémon are also the main mascots of the video games ''[[Pokémon X and Y]]'' which Xerneas represents ''Pokémon X'' and Yveltal represents ''Pokémon Y''. In either ''Pokemon X or Y'', [[Team Flare]] would try using the dormant form of Xerneas or Yveltal to power the Ultimate Weapon; it remains to be seen if they will try something similar with Zygarde in a sequel.
In the anime, Zekrom first appeared in [[BW001: In The Shadow of Zekrom!|''In The Shadow of Zekrom!'']] shooting a powerful lightning bolt at Pikachu, causing Pikachu to lose its ability to use electric attacks.
 
   
Reshiram and Zekrom later both appeared in [[MS014: Pokémon The Movie: Black - Victini & Reshiram / Pokémon The Movie: White - Victini & Zekrom]]. Zekrom served the Hero of the Ideals and sided with Damon in Black, while Reshiram served the Hero of Truths and sided with Damon in White.
+
The reason why Xeneas and Yveltal are sometimes considered as the Mortality Duo is due to the reason that they represent the letters of the two gender chromosomes, X and Y. It can also be inferred that Xerneas is female, as females have the XX chromosome set; and that Yveltal is male, as males have the XY chromosome set however this has not been confirmed; Zygarde may be genderless like most other Legendary Pokemon. The theme between the duo of Xerneas and Yveltal is enternal life and destruction. Given Zygarde's role as protector of the environment, he may be a representation of the middle ground between Xerneas and Yveltal, which is the state of the environment that decides how long others can live.
   
In Black/White 2 it is revealed that Reshiram and Zekrom were both a single Pokemon that followed twin heroes in bringing an ancient, conflicted Unova into peace. The twins however eventually ended having opposite perspectives, one believing in ideals and one in truth. The Pokemon then split giving birth to Reshiram and Zekrom, while Kyurem was a left byproduct.
+
===Diancie===
  +
[[Diancie]] is an event Legendary. Diancie also has a Mega Evolution called [[Mega Diancie]].

:''Not to be confused with [[Pseudo & Semi-Pseudo Legendary Pokémon|Pseudo-Legendary Pokémon]].''
  +
Several Pokémon are often disputed as to whether or not they are Legendary and are often mistaken as true Legendaries by fans.
   
==='''Victini'''===
+
===List===
Victini is the Pokémon that is supposed to bring victory to any Trainer that owns it, no matter their skill level. It was available through several events, the latest of which, ended June 26th, 2012. Currently, the only ways to get it are to either have previously obtained one, through trading with someone who owns one or through the use of a cheat device or hacking. The events for Japan in 2010, Australia, Europe and America 2011 would give you the [[Liberty Pass]] which enables travelling to [[Liberty Garden]] while all the other will allow you to receive Victini directly through Wi-Fi.
+
*[[Deoxys Copy]] - though they are copies created by a Legendary, they are very weak and cannot fight alone. They only appear in the anime.
  +
*[[Phione]] - Phione is bred from the Mythical Manaphy and a Ditto but it has been disputed if it is legendary/mythical or not, official sources have differed on the matter.
  +
*[[Rotom]] - Rotom is often thought of as Legendary because there is only one in the game. It is also labelled as a Legendary in the DP Pokedex Book, although the same book has several other errors (numbering in the double digits) both major and minor.
  +
*[[Arcanine]] - Arcanine is commonly misconstructed as a Legendary Pokemon, mainly because of an episode (named ''[[EP002|Pokemon Emergency!]]'', and known to be the second episode of the show) which showed Arcanine as one of the four legendary Pokémon on the tablet at the Viridian City Pokémon Center. Despite not actually being a legendary Pokémon, this reflects its species description as the "Legendary" Pokémon, and creates a common misconception.

Legendary Pokémon (Japanese: 伝説のポケモン Densetsu no Pokemon, literally meaning; "Pokémon of Legends") are extremely rare and mostly powerful Pokémon which they are also called to be as 'Pokémon Illusions' (Japanese: 幻のポケモン Maboroshi no Pokemon, literally meaning; "Phantom Pokémon"). Legendary Pokémon are unique in each and every region in the Pokémon series and also beloved by criminal organizations such as Team Rocket which they believe that with their power they can control the world. Legendary Pokémon can also be seen as mythical Pokémon, such as the Sinnoh Legendaries that shaped the world. In the Pokémon anime it can be assumed that there are more than one legendary Pokémon. Legendary Pokémon are extremely hard to capture but they can be easily defeated in the video games. Each and every Legendary Pokémon in the series are extremely hard to capture, only if you don't count the Master Balls. As in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire while accessed from Eon Flute, the non-event Legendary Pokemon were now obtainable.

Unfortunately, Mewtwo was an angry Pokémon and it destroyed the Pokémon Mansion. After that Mewtwo travelled to the Cerulean Cave and is currently residing there. Strange knowing is that Mewtwo is actually the clone of Mew, but Mewtwo comes first in the Pokédex. Mewtwo number in the National Pokédex is #150, that of Mew is #151. It can be because Mew is a mythical Pokémon and it is rarely seen by humans while Mewtwo has been created by humans through DNA. Also Mew wasn't legitimately available in the Generation 1 games although was mentioned in journals in the Pokémon mansion, and all references to the number of Pokémon in the region state there are 150 not 151, Mew's Pokedex number is 151.

These Pokémon originates and are most likely appearing the Kalos region. Nine legendary Pokémon are known, the Mortality Trio, Mega Mewtwo, Diancie and it's Mega Evolution, and Mega evolutions of the Eon Duo.

Mortality TrioEdit

  • Xerneas
  • Yveltal
  • Zygarde

The members of the Yggdrasil Trio consist of Xerneas, a Fairy-type Pokemon, Yveltal, a Dark/Flying-type Pokémon, and Zygarde, a Dragon/Ground Pokemon. While Yveltal and Zygarde are dual type Pokemon, Xerneas is the only member of the Yggdrasil Trio that is not. 

Two of the legendary Pokémon are also the main mascots of the video games Pokémon X and Y which Xerneas represents Pokémon X and Yveltal represents Pokémon Y. In either Pokemon X or YTeam Flare would try using the dormant form of Xerneas or Yveltal to power the Ultimate Weapon; it remains to be seen if they will try something similar with Zygarde in a sequel.

The reason why Xeneas and Yveltal are sometimes considered as the Mortality Duo is due to the reason that they represent the letters of the two gender chromosomes, X and Y. It can also be inferred that Xerneas is female, as females have the XX chromosome set; and that Yveltal is male, as males have the XY chromosome set however this has not been confirmed; Zygarde may be genderless like most other Legendary Pokemon. The theme between the duo of Xerneas and Yveltal is enternal life and destruction. Given Zygarde's role as protector of the environment, he may be a representation of the middle ground between Xerneas and Yveltal, which is the state of the environment that decides how long others can live.

DiancieEdit

Diancie is an event Legendary. Diancie also has a Mega Evolution called Mega Diancie.

Alternate formsEdit

Generation VI introduces Mega Pokémon, a new type of evolution. The Genetic Pokémon Mewtwo is able to Mega Evolve into two different Mega Pokémon depending on the version of the game. He can turn into Mega Mewtwo X using a Mewtwonite X- which is available in X version, and Mega Mewtwo Y using a Mewtwonite Y - which is available in Y version. Mega Mewtwo X is a dual Psychic/Fighting-type while Mega Mewtwo Y retains Mewtwo's pure Psychic nature. The ability and stats of Mega Mewtwo also differs between version.

Mega Eon DuoEdit

  • Mega Latias
  • Mega Latios

Mega evolutions of Latias and Latios also appear.

Primal Weather DuoEdit

  • Primal Kyogre
  • Primal Groudon

Primal reversions of Kyogre and Groudon also appear.

Semi-LegendaryEdit

Not to be confused with Pseudo-Legendary Pokémon.

Several Pokémon are often disputed as to whether or not they are Legendary and are often mistaken as true Legendaries by fans.

ListEdit

  • Deoxys Copy - though they are copies created by a Legendary, they are very weak and cannot fight alone. They only appear in the anime.
  • Phione - Phione is bred from the Mythical Manaphy and a Ditto but it has been disputed if it is legendary/mythical or not, official sources have differed on the matter.
  • Rotom - Rotom is often thought of as Legendary because there is only one in the game. It is also labelled as a Legendary in the DP Pokedex Book, although the same book has several other errors (numbering in the double digits) both major and minor.
  • Arcanine - Arcanine is commonly misconstructed as a Legendary Pokemon, mainly because of an episode (named Pokemon Emergency!, and known to be the second episode of the show) which showed Arcanine as one of the four legendary Pokémon on the tablet at the Viridian City Pokémon Center. Despite not actually being a legendary Pokémon, this reflects its species description as the "Legendary" Pokémon, and creates a common misconception.
