What makes Mewtwo legendary?

The only people that knew about him were Red and some dead scientist, he has no legend.

Probably the whole "Only 1 exists".

Probably the whole "Only 1 exists".

But no one even knows it exists other than Red and the scientists who helped birth him.

The fact he was created to be the ultimate, having only one in existence, might just have something to do with it.

If you want to really ask that question, why are the legendary beasts legendary, when supposively they were created from common Pokemon due to Ho-Oh's power, and supposively more than one has existed.

The same started with Mew, Mew was so rare it was considered to be a mirage because no one had literally seen them. it doesn't matter whether they were seen only that they are beyond rare, have uber Powers (Dialga/Palkia being idols of time and space), and or changing the world in some way (Regi)

It's just the arbitrary "definition" of "legendary" that the "fans" give to it.

Same reason why Volcarona can't be legendary or pseudo-legendary: because it doesn't fit some made-up list of rules that for some reason is agreed upon by pretty much everyone.

That's not a legend

you want to really ask that question, why are the legendary beasts legendary, when supposively they were created from common Pokemon due to Ho-Oh's power, and supposively more than one has existed.

Do you understand what a legend is? The story of the three pokemon dying and being resurrected by Ho-Oh is the legend.

No, the difference is that Mew actually has a legend behind it.

Here's what I've noticed that both Nintendo, and Game Freak has called the "Extremely Rare" Pokemon even in the Cartoons, they call them "Mythical".

Noting that A Legend and Myth could both be generalize as the same thing but I'm gonna say that.

Legends are based on Facts that were passed down through time.

Myths are pure conjecture, I.E. the myth that the 3 Pokemon Resurrected by Ho-oh we're infact 3 normal or common Pokemon caught in the fire of the Burned Tower.

Then again Myths and Legends have no defined way to acknowledge a difference between the two.

I like the Myth that the Unown were created along side Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina.

Perhaps it's legendary for its sheer power and capabilities? You're trying to apply too much logic on a basis which the game does not supplement too well towards. We'll just go with some of the gameplay aspects that consider it "legendary"

- High BST (Don't come at me with Slaking..)
- Only one
- Origin oriented
- Presented as one of the strongest Pokemon in the entire world
