Gen IV was the worst. There were the Lake guardians and the creation trio... then there was Cresselia who was just there. And then Darkrai who is kind of related to Cresselia, but is event only. Manaphy is the Mew-archtype.... but then there is also Shaymin. Oh, and whatever Phione is. Then we get Regigigas, leader of a trio from a different generation. Then Heatran is totally randomly tossed in there, it doesn't even seem legendary (multiple genders??). If that wasn't enough, Poke-God Arceus is in there too and yet another event only. 13 or 14 legendaries total.
At least Gen V organized it a little better. Theres the "justice Trio", the Kami trio, and the Tao trio. Victini is the Mew-achetype, and then there are just Genesect, Meloetta, and Keldeo who is kind of a part of the Justice group. 13 again, but at least all of them are related other than Victini (who gets a pass as the "Mew"), Genesect, and Meloetta.
I say 7 is just fine (Cover trio, secondary trio, "Mew") and they should only do about 10 max. --- King Boo for Super Smash Bros. Spread the word, show your support
-Box legends -The third legend -a trio -a mini legend (like jirachi, celebi, etc) -no event legends
That's all I want tbh, they could just have legends with hidden abilities or moves they cant normal get for events.
what does box legened mean
The legend... On the box.. Like Dialga/Palkia/Giratina. --- Chuck Finley is Forever! People that agree: 5. I believe in Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior and am 100% proud of it. Yeah, it's hot, but it's a dry heat.
The Weather Trio: Groudon, Kyogre and Rayquaza, The Regi Trio: Regirock, Regice, and Registeel, The Eon Duo: Latias and Latios The Event Legendaries: Jirachi and Deoxys.
Ten Legendaries; but it's a good number to go with, ultimately.
Though I can understand the dislike for so many legendaries. Gen1 and Gen2 combined only had 11 legendaries total. Gen3 Presented 10 new legends, almost doubling the amount.
In Gen4, I perfectly understand the hate for "Overproducing Legendaries" which a previous poster already explained. adding a staggering 14; and then we also had the confusion of Rotom, who is argueably a legend in it self, making 15.
Gen5 is also partially guilty for this, namely by including FOUR Event Legendaries, and THREE Trios, adding 13 to the roster.. The Kami Trio's addition was a bit much, and event legends should have been limited to Victini and Keldeo. Genesect and Meloetta aren't... really... Legendary.
