File:Mechamew2 clear.png

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.

After the creation of Mewtwo, his creators state that they should get started on Mewthree, Mewthree also has a brief appearance in the Pocket Monsters manga. An additional member is an artificial Pokémon which only appears in Pokémon Live! called MechaMew2.

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 by-product.

Kyurem is the title character in Kyurem VS The Sword of justice. Keldeo arrogantly challenged him, only to lose horribly against the powerful Legendary. Terrakion attacks Kyurem with Hyper Beam in an attempt to stop him, but Kyurem freezes all 3 Swords of Justice with Ice Burn. Keldeo ran away in horror, but Kyurem knew that the battle was not over. After relentlessly pursuing Keldeo, who was now traveling with Ash and co. Keldeo re-challenges Kyurem. Although it was much more formindablr and also turned into his resolute form, Keldeo still lost after a Secret Sword-Freeze Shock collision, and admitted defeat. Kyurem respected Keldeo for saving it's friends, and complemented his sword, before leaving.

Generation Trio

The Generation Trio is a trio of legendary Pokémon that is however, the members are Xerneas, a Fairy-type Pokemon and Yveltal, a Dark/Flying-type Pokémon, and Zygarde, a Dragon/Ground Pokemon. The two legendary Pokémon are also the main mascots of the upcoming video games Pokémon X and Y which Xerneas represents Pokémon X and Yveltal represents Pokémon Y. The reason why the two Pokémon have been considered the Gene 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.
 The legendary trio involves eternal life and death.

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


  • Deoxys Copy - though they are copies created by a Legendary, they are very weak and cannot fight alone.
  • 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 due to its multiple forms and appearing in a special event, as well as  there only being one in-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.
