I agree with you, but try telling that to Bulbapedia. They are so inconsistent with their definition of Pseudolegendary Pokemon. -_-

Pseudolegendaries have stats as high as actual legendaries without actually being legendary themselves, and without any major drawbacks like Slaking's Truant. Volcarona has high base stats... but not quite legendary-high. Lucario's base stats, while not bad for a nonlegendary Pokemon, aren't really anything special.

The weakest legendaries have 580 as their base stat total, and most legendaries have that, 600, or 680 (though other values do exist, they tend toward the high end of the scale). Other than pseudolegendaries and Slaking, the highest nonlegendary BST is Archeops (567, and he also has a negative Ability), and the next one after him is Arcanine with 555. And while the Pokedex might call Arcanine "legendary", no one takes that very seriously.

All pseudolegendaries have 600.

No it isn't. It's just a powerful Pokemon like Haxorus or Chandelure.

Bulbapedia says exactly that.

No, Bulbapedia throws in that they "must" fit a specific level-up curve - a completely redundant addition, since it excludes zero Pokemon with the other criteria - and it used to say that they "needed" to be dualtypes.

Pseudo-legendary Pokémon (Japanese: &#25836;&#20284;&#20253;&#35500; Pseudo-legendary) is a fan term commonly used to refer to any Pokémon that has a three-stage evolution line, 1,250,000 experience at level 100, and a base stat total of exactly 600. The term originates from the prefix pseudo-, which means "false". Pseudo-legendary Pokémon are often more powerful than other non-legendary Pokémon due to their high base stats.
Other variations of the definition also mention having two types or having at least one type immunity, or omit the need to have 1,250,000 experience at level 100.


Where does it say that they MUST have that?

So, basically, you're applying semantics to a fan-made definition that cannot be fully defined unless it was officially defined. Classy.
