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

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.

The same started with Mew, Mew was so rare it was considered to be a mirage because no one had literally seen them.

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


Your context of legend is now how Nintendo uses the term legend. Stop being ignorant. Thanks.

Mew has what legend behind it? Being extremely rare to be considered a mirage because so few of people have actually seen it.

Wow, that sounds similar to what you're selling here.

/I wish you were kidding.

The legend of mew is that it's said their are so few of the species left spotting one can be assumed it was a mirage.

A myth about Mew is that it could be the decendant of all current Pokemon Species.

I think I got that right.

What I'd like to ask TC is why he forgets Mewtwo is a genetically modified Mew, so the legend of Mew pretty much instantly transfers over to Mewtwo making it Legend status.

DNA blueprint for every Pokemon, rare, believed to be the first Pokemon. No, you're right though, it's only legendary because few people have seen it.

Because Mewtwo was genetically altered and no one knows of its existence. You can't have a legend if no one knows about it.

Most of those are myths and aren't confirmed. On that note: Mewtwo is a genetically modified Mew.

Mewtwo is a freaking Mew.

So what were you saying, using your own logic against you?

In fact, Mewtwo is the only stand out Mew, because it was the first genetically engineered Pokemon, and there are myths about it as seen in GSC/HGSS. "A very powerful creature once existed in Unknown Dungeon and was believed to be behind the collapse"

Legendary, at the time, was just Pokemon fan jargon for the Pokemon that the games put emphasis on as being special or powerful. Mewtwo, Articuno, Moltress and Zapdos all had their own caves you had to trudge through to get to, had insanely low catch rates, and were very powerful.

In a meta sense, "legendary" could refer to the legends we, the fans, make about them. We hype them up because they're so rare and hard to catch. So to us, they're legendary. We had to trudge through Burnt Tower, or Seafoam Cave, or Unknown Dungeon, or Sky Pillar, to track down these guys, and when we found them, if we had no master ball, we were there for ha;f an hour thrwoing pokeballs.

Someone does know about it, and in fact in Cerulean a person even brings up mention of a "Very Powerful Pokemon" that once existed in Unknown Dungeon.

That no one knows about, how is this not getting through to you.
A legend can't exist if no one knows about it

Keyword, notice he doesn't call it legendary. Notice he doesn't know what it is. He doesn't go, "The legendary Mew's baby is in the cave." The world doesn't know about Mewtwo, he has no established legend to the Pokemon world.
