Also, this means over half of Gen 5's legendaries have alternate forms.
Do Genesect's really count as forms?
The game's coding considers them alternate forms.
That means nothing. They had to program them as alternate formes. It's the same thing as Arceus and people don't consider Arceus to have 16 alternate formes. The Pokedex can show alternate formes for Pokemon that have them and it doesn't consider Arceus and Genesect as formed Pokemon. --- Your opinion differs from mine, therefore you are a troll.
I remember when it was something unique and special to have multiple forms. But now everyone and their mother has them.

What would you do if they gave Mewtwo an alternate form?
appreciate that they arent ignoring the old, but be frustrated that the forms are only being giving to legendaries (save rotom) and not other pokemon that could use a good stat change, and or type change. --- i like having discussions, so lets discuss the topics, not the spelling, or grammar. and lets be nice in the process.

Not only that, but if you check out the official Japanese site's Pokedex Arceus isn't listed for any type but Normal.
I think it's safe to say that for a change to be considered a real alternate form, it has to be a physical change rather than a simple palette swap. --- Officially Porygon-Z of the Black Version 2 board.
I hate additional forms. They add nothing to the game and are simply a gimmick to get fans' money.
... Are you presuming that people would not buy Black and White 2 if Keldeo did not have an alternate forme? Do you think GameFreak is charging for Keldeo's alternate forme? How do alternate formes necessarily equal more money?

Genesect's drives already count as alternate formes in BW's data,
All they need to do have them change Genesect's secondary type.
I actually thought about this when the new kami forms were introduced. If Genesect ever gets it's "Drive Form" change, then I'm interested to see Bug/Ice Bug/Electric, and kinda Bug/Water. Bug/Fire would be like Volcarona with better movepools option.
About Keldeo, I'm wondering if the new form going make it a pure Fighting legendary? Just my 2 cents speculation about it. --- 3DS FC: 4167-5539-9526
