Wait, wait, wait. You putted GENESECT instead of one of the musketeer trio? Really he's only legendary because he's an EVENT pokemon. His story has exactly NOTHING legendary.
Bad poll is bad.
The diaries left behind in the burned building explaining the origins of Mewtwo made it feel like you were actually chasing a legend. Genesect's backstory gave me a similar feeling. Compared to the mascots who only feel legendary because they're shoehorned into the plot (Lugia and Ho-Oh being the exception until they were required in HG/SS) its a nice change of pace.
Uhhh, Genesect is just a modified fossil pokemon. They could do this to Omastar, Cradily etc.
