legendary pokemons
Ho-oh
-----
Japanese Name: Houou
Translation: Phoenix
Classification: Sacred
Species: Rainbow
Rarity: Unique
Real-World Counterpart: Chinese Phoenix (Mythological)
Types: Fire/Flying
Trademark Technique: Sacred Fire
Game Stats: Tier 1
First Appearance [Games]: Pocket Monsters Gold & Silver [Japan]
Pokemon Gold & Silver [US]
Obtainable in: Pocket Monsters Gold, Silver & Crystal [Japan]
Pokemon Gold, Silver & Crystal [US]
Anime Strength: Unknown.
First Appearance [Anime]: Episode 1 [US]
Episode 1 [Japan]
Special Abilities: Immortality, Ressurect others, Create Life
Notes: Ho-oh is, in my estimation, tied with Lugia and Mewtwo in the show as
well. Only appears to the pure of heart to bestow hope. Ho-Oo is the
japanese version of the Feng-Huang, or chinese phoenix. Ho and Feng are
the males, and Oo and Huang are the females. It is supposed to
represent the sun, justice, fidelity and obedience. They appear only at
the start of a new era, and usually to those who will start the era.
Did You Know?: Ho-oh is the only pokemon to appear unnamed in the show before
its corresponding game set. It is the creator of the Legendary Beasts,
and is their master.
It is also the only Legendary before Ruby & Sapphire to not have
actually been a central figure in an episode, special, or movie.
Ho-oh's last appearance was known only to Ash and Pikachu - see the
notes section for more on that.
Ho-oh and Lugia may be considered Dragons in the traditional asian
sense; that is, simply an extremely powerful creature. The reptilian
creatures associated with the term dragon is more of a western thing,
although it was mostly creatures of those dimensions who were called
dragons.

Lugia
-----
Japanese Name: Lugia
Translation: Unknown
Classification: Mystical
Species: Diving
Rarity: Unique [Movies], Ultra-Rare [Anime]
Real-World Counterpart: Greek Halcyon (Mythological)

Extremely dangerous with no power limit. [Anime]

Episode 223 [Japan Show]
Revelation Lugia [US Movie]
Episode 221 [US Show]
Special Abilities: Restore balance of Heat, Lightning, and Ice to oceans,
create storms, heal others.
Notes: The show and the movie conflict on data about Lugia. The movie hints at
there only being one, while the show seems to relate it more to its
Halcyon roots, giving it a child born on a clear day.
Did You Know?: Lugia is the peacemaker of the Legendary Birds.
Ho-oh and Lugia may be considered Dragons in the traditional asian
sense; that is, simply an extremely powerful creature. The reptilian
creatures associated with the term dragon is more of a western thing,
although it was mostly creatures of those dimensions who were called
dragons.

Notes: Many claim Mewtwo to be the strongest pokemon, but it is unknown how
powerful he is compared to Ho-oh and Lugia in the show. It is not an
actually legendary or mythically based pokemon, but he is so often
referred to as one, that I placed him into the guide.
Did You Know?: The creator of Mewtwo is Mr. Fuji. Yep, the Pokemon House guy
from Lavender Town. The game claims that Mew was induced to pregnancy
and they tampered with the embryo. The result was Mewtwo. The anime
claims that Mewtwo was a tampered clone from a hair of a Mew.

First Appearance [Anime]: Myuutsu Strikes Back [Japan Movie]

Mew is said to have the DNA of all pokemon. Is he able to Time Travel?
Did You Know? The game claims that Mew was induced to pregnancy and they
tampered with the embryo. The result was Mewtwo. The anime claims that
Mewtwo was a tampered clone from a hair of a Mew. Also, Mew is the
only pokemon who did not appear in the Pokerap.

Special Abilities: Time-Travel
Notes: The only abilities Celebi has that hint at Time Travel are Perish Song,
Baton Pass, Foresight, and Recover.
Did You Know?: Ash & Company meet the young Prof. Samuel Oak in this movie.
Perhaps this finally explains why Oak likes Ash more than Gary...
Celebi is the only pokemon not shown in the GS Pokerap.

Deoxys
------

Translation: Deoxys

Species: DNA
Rarity: Unique
Real-World Counterpart: Really, REALLY bad Sci-fi movies.

Obtainable in: Pokemon Ruby & Sapphire
Anime Strength: N/A
First Appearance [Anime]: N/A
Special Abilities: ...Shoot lasers... High intelligence, psychokinetic powers.
Notes: This guy makes Mewtwo look pretty damn tame. It is not an actually
legendary or mythically based pokemon, but he is so often referred to
as one, that I placed him into the guide.
He is the result of an alien space virus being bombarded with Cosmic
Radiation and a laser from a satellite.
Did You Know?: The name Deoxys is from the term Deoxyribonucleic Acid - better
known as D.N.A.

Dragonite

Obtainable in: Series 1 & 2 Games
Anime Strength: Excellent
First Appearance [Anime]: Episode 13 [Both]
Special Abilities: Prolonged supersonic flight.
Notes: Dragonite uses the general body structure of the European Dragons, but
it seems to be a bit more of a compromise between the European and
Asian Dragon; it is primarily water based, and can be gentle or
vengeful, depending on the situation.
Did You Know?: Lance, leader of the Elite Four in Series 1 and the Pokemon
League Champ in Series 2, consistently has Dragonites that are lower
level than Dragonairs are supposed to be in order to evolve.

Unshown [US]

Notes: Dragonair seems to be based on younger dragons, which are snake-like in
appearance but have many similar powers as their elder, winged

because the Safari Zone warden uses a gun.

Dratini

Anime Strength: N/A
First Appearance [Anime]: N/A
Special Abilities: None.
Notes: Salamence, like Charizard, was inspired by the typical medieval dragon,
but with less of a focus on fire. From its pokedex data, it would not
be surprising if it was based on a rare noble dragon.
Did You Know?: Salamence starts out as a Bagon, which strongly resembles a baby
dinosaur, but then turns into a dragon-like egg before reaching its
final stage as Salamence.
The name comes from Salamander and menance; Salamanders were believed

Real World Counterpart: Jewish Golem (Mythological)
Type: Rock
Trademark Technique: Rock Throw, Curse
Game Stats: Tier 4
First Appearance [Games]: Pokemon Ruby & Sapphire
Obtainable in: Pokemon Ruby & Sapphire
Anime Strength: N/A
First Appearance [Anime]: N/A
Special Abilities: Unaffected by debilitating techniques
Notes: The word Golem originally meant "unformed substance." It took its
present meaning in the middle ages, when stories of enchanters who
could give life to creatures of inorganic materials by use of charms
arose. These roughly humanoid creatures would often protect Jews or
guard treasure.
Did You Know?: Golems generally have a humanoid shape similar to the Legendary
Golem Trio's bodies.
The well-known Golem of the Geodude evolution line is not a creation,
but actual living rock, which is why its name isn't fully appropriate.

RegiIce
--------
Japanese Name: Rejiice
Translation: Ice King
Classification: Elemental
Species: Iceberg
Rarity: Unique
Real World Counterpart: Jewish Golem (Mythological)
Type: Ice
Trademark Technique: Icy Wind, Curse
Game Stats: Tier 4
First Appearance [Games]: Pokemon Ruby & Sapphire
Obtainable in: Pokemon Ruby & Sapphire
Anime Strength: N/A
First Appearance [Anime]: N/A
Special Abilities: Unaffected by debilitating techniques
Notes: The word Golem originally meant "unformed substance." It took its
present meaning in the middle ages, when stories of enchanters who
could give life to creatures of inorganic materials by use of charms
arose. These roughly humanoid creatures would often protect Jews or
guard treasure.
Did You Know?: Golems may be made out of any uniform material, not simply rock.

RegiSteel
--------
Japanese Name: Rejisteel
Translation: Steel King
Classification: Elemental
Species: Iceberg
Rarity: Unique
Real World Counterpart: Jewish Golem (Mythological)
Type: Steel
Trademark Technique: Metal Claw, Curse
Game Stats: Tier 4
First Appearance [Games]: Pokemon Ruby & Sapphire
Obtainable in: Pokemon Ruby & Sapphire
Anime Strength: N/A
First Appearance [Anime]: N/A
Special Abilities: Unaffected by debilitating techniques
Notes: The word Golem originally meant "unformed substance." It took its
present meaning in the middle ages, when stories of enchanters who
could give life to creatures of inorganic materials by use of charms
arose. These roughly humanoid creatures would often protect Jews or
guard treasure.
Did You Know?: Some Golems have been associated with robots; this pokemon's
association with aliens and otherworldly things is therefore,
unsurprising.

Arcanine
--------
Japanese Name: Uindii
Translation: "Windy"
Classification: Legendary
Species: Legendary
Rarity: Rare
Real-World Counterpart: Japanese Shishi (Or Jishi) (Mythological)
Type: Fire
Trademark Technique: Extreme Speed
Evolves from: Growlithe, with use of the Fire Stone
Game Stats: Above Average
First Appearance [Games]: Pocket Monsters Red & Green [Japan]
Pokemon Red & Blue [US]
Obtainable in: Pocket Monsters Red, Yellow, Gold & Crystal [Japan]
Pokemon Red, Yellow, Gold & Crystal [US]
Anime Strength: Above average.
First Appearance [Anime]: Episode 78 [Japan]
Episode 76 [US]
Special Abilities: Chases off dark spirits and demons.
Notes: Arcanine is neither a dragon, lion, tiger, nor dog, but something rather
close to a mix of the four. The Japanese Shishi is a mix of the Korean
Koma-inu (or Korean Guardian Dog), the Chinese Kara-shishi (Or Chinese
Guardian Lion) with some dragon tossed in for good mix. This is why it
can learn Dragon type TMs and is given a legendary status.
Did You Know?: The Arcanine is not a true Shishi, as it lacks the important
horn on its head. This is probably why it is not in the same class of
Legendary as even Dragonite or the trios.
Arcanine has the highest stats of any pokemon below Tier 4 status.

Lapras
------
Japanese Name: Rapurasu
Translation: Lapras
Classification: Mystical
Species: Transport
Rarity: Ultra-rare
Real-World Counterpart: Loch Ness Monster (Mythological)
Types: Water/Ice
Trademark Techniques: Ice Beam, Haze, Surf
Game Stats: Above Average
First Appearance [Games]: Pocket Monsters Red & Green [Japan]
Pokemon Red & Blue [US]
Obtainable in: Series 1 & 2 Games
Anime Strength: Average.
First Appearance [Anime]: Episode 87 [Japan]
Episode 85 [US]
Special Abilities: Shrouds itself in mist.
Notes: Lapras appears to have been somewhat combined with the great sea turtle,
Not only does it have a characteristic shell, but it has been hunted
into near extinction and lives an extremely long time.
They live both in underwater lakes and open seas, so Lapras must either
be capable of adapting to both fresh water and salt water, or, more
likely, two different types of Lapras have gradually evolved over the
years.
Did You Know?: Lapras was the Surf sprite in GSC with a pallet swap.

Charizard
--------
Japanese Name: Lizardon
Translation: Lizard King
Classification: Dragon
Species: Flame
Rarity: Rare
Real-World Counterpart: European Dragon (Mythological)

Pokemon Red, Blue & Yellow [US]
Anime Strength: Greatly above average.
First Appearance [Anime]: Episode 46 [Japan]
Episode 44 [US]
Special Abilities: None.
Notes: Charizard was inspired by the typical medieval dragon, which was
tempermental, red, and fire-breathing. As indicated by his Charmeleon
data, Charizard is certainly quite vicious. It doesn't have a dragon-
typing, which is important; it only takes normal damage from dragon
attacks, and is neutral to Ice, very important in Dragon styled teams.
Did You Know?: Charizard was only the second pokemon that evolved to its final
form while it was in Ash Ketchum's possession on the TV Show.

Ninetales
---------
Japanese Name: Kyuukon
Translation: Nine Tails
Classification: Paranormal
Species: Fox
Rarity: Rare
Real-World Counterpart: Japanese Kitsune (Mythological)
Type: Fire
Trademark Technique: Fire Spin
Evolves from: Vulpix, with use of the Fire Stone
Game Stats: Average
First Appearance [Games]: Pocket Monsters Red & Green [Japan]
Pokemon Red & Blue [US]
Obtainable in: Pocket Monsters Green, Yellow, Gold & Crystal [Japan]
Pokemon Blue, Yellow, Gold & Crystal [US]
Anime Strength: Greatly above average.
First Appearance [Anime]: Episode 63 [Japan]
Episode 61 [US]
Special Abilities: Change shape, seduce, long-life, cast curses, possession of
bodies, cast illusions, enter dreams, hypnotize.
Notes: The Kitsune is a very vengeful creature with a strong sense of justice.
Its ability to shape-shift is used to either reward or punish someone,
generally. They prefer to shape-shift into the forms of beautiful
women.
Kitsune are foxes who have lived 1,000 years or more; upon hitting the
grand old age, their fur turns Silver, White, or Gold.
Did You Know?: The Shishi (Arcanine) is a natural enemy of the Nine-tailed fox.
Those who feared the wrath of Kitsunes could afford no better
protection than a dog or Shishi. (Not that this was very good
protection if the fox could trick the dog's owner into killing it....)
Ninetales is fire-element due to the fact that a "Foxfire" is said to
appear whenever one of its illusions is dispelled.

Golduck
-------
Japanese Name: Gorudaku
Translation: Golduck
Classification: Paranormal
Species: Duck
Rarity: Uncommon
Real-World Counterpart: Japanese Kappa (Mythological)

Trademark Technique: Confusion
Evolves from: Psyduck, at Level 33.
Game Stats: Average
First Appearance [Games]: Pocket Monsters Red & Green [Japan]
Pokemon Red & Blue [US]
Obtainable in: Series 1, 2, and 3 Games
Anime Strength: Greatly above average.
First Appearance [Anime]: Episode 70 [Japan]
Episode 68 [US]
Special Abilities: Life Drain, great strength
Notes: The Kappa is a river-creature that has the ability to either suck a
victim's blood out through their anus, or psychically drain an opponent
of its lifeforce, which is likely the origin of Golduck's psychic
powers. They are very vicious and powerful, but not always evil.
However, they cannot last long outside of water for fear of losing the
water they store in an indentation in their head.
Did You Know?: Golduck, like many other mythologically inspired pokemon, does
not exactly correspond to the myth it is based upon. Obviously, Golduck
has no cranial indentation, but it is not at its best outside of water
regardless.

Unown
-----
Japanese Name: Annon
Translation: "Unknown," literally.
Classification: Paranormal
Rarity: Uncommon
Real World Counterpart: Celtic Runes (Mythological)
Type: Psychic

SOLARION|
--------
Theme: Sun Worship

Espeon
------
Trace trait.
Cheeky, Naughty, or Moody personality.
Item: Leftovers

Moveset 1:
Baton Pass Calm Mind
Double Team Psychic

Alternate Moveset:
Baton Pass Calm Mind
Sunny Day Psychic

Notes: A possible party opener, surprisingly; I normally lead with a FIRE-type
pokémon. While Espeon was useless as a Baton Passer before, I think he works
well now. Calm Mind and Double Team make for a good combination, and can
virtually remove the threat of most WATER-type pokémon. I'd Baton-pass to Ho-oh
if you have Sunny Day.

Ho-oh
-----
Pressure trait.
Cheeky, Cowardly, Gentle, or Humble personality.
Item: Leppa Berry

Moveset 1:
Recover Solarbeam
Thunderbolt Sacred Fire

Alternate Moveset:
Recover Giga Drain
Thunderbolt Sacred Fire

Notes: Ahh, a variation on the standard Ho-oh. He should immediately follow the
Espeon, as he is the team's strongest point. If you don't have Sunny Day
Espeon, I'd highly suggest using Giga Drain instead.

Groudon
-------
Drought trait.
Obstinate, Naughty, Cheerful, or Cautious personality.
Item: Mint Berry

Moveset:
Earthquake Rest
Build Up Brick Break

Notes: AstralGroudon. ^_^ I opt for Brick Break because it still gives him a
super effective on Ice, adds a super effective to Dark, and will help break
down a psuedo passer. Flying pokemon are not much of a threat, generally, and
Brick Break has normal effectiveness on most flying types anyway.

Blaziken
--------
Raging Fire trait.
Tenacious, Obedient, Earnest, Shy, or Fickle personality.
Item: Bright Powder

Moveset:
Sky Upper Rock Slide
Aerial Ace Build Up

Notes: Aerial Ace is there more for its ability to never miss than anything
else. It may come in handy, or maybe not. Because only three types resist
flying, and Blaziken has a Super-Effective on all of those, it's a better
choice than swift, which won't hit a ghost - and since Ghosts like to use
Double Team, that wouldn't help much. Rock Slide will just hurt, frankly.
Other Notes: I like to call this the Aerial'Ken....

Moltres
-------
Pressure trait.
Humble personality.
Item: Charcoal or Leppa Berry

Moveset:
Fire Blast Sunny Day
Safeguard Whirlwind

Notes: Variation on the Standard GSC 'Tres. He Pseudo-passes and pseudo-hazes,
so try to keep him alive.

Solrock
-------
Floating trait.
Obstinate personality.
Item: Focus Band or Scope Lens

Moveset:
Cosmic Power Explosion
Rock Slide Double Team

Notes: The V Solrock. It's a hazer-killer; draw out the opponent, and BAM! If
the opponent happens to decide to wait, then use your attack. If you Baton Pass
from an Espeon to this, I feel sorry for your opponent.
