Now that Smogoon has confirmed Gen 2's trio as dogs, will Nintendo do it in X/Y?

80/80
Smogoon:

Suicune is without a doubt a highly accomplished member of the second legendary trio in the game. It has great defensive stats and a good HP stat, which means that it can perform well as a very bulky Water-type. Offensively it's not a bad Pokemon either; it has a base 90 Special Attack and a decent base 85 Speed. It also has access to Calm Mind to further boost its Special Attack and Special Defense, letting it perform well as either a tank or a sweeper.

However, time hasn't been kind to Suicune. The legendary dog has had increasing troubles since its first appearance in Johto; now, with the significant increase in power of the offensive threats, its defenses aren't as amazing as they used to be and it now has a hard time taking even some unboosted hits. Suicune also has a somewhat shallow movepool, which makes it predictable. However, despite these two limitations, it is still a top Pokemon that one should always consider when building a team.

Since we're getting 3 regional pokedexes, will they be updated to confirm Smogoon?

Also will CMCune ever get a weak?

They're legendary hamsters, clearly. Because semantics matter.

Also, things can be based on more than one animal. SO a more appropriate question- is it a doglike cat? or a catlike dog?

Well, Suicune isn't a dog. I think that's the point... kinda... if this topic even has a point.

Smogon isn't official. Just because they write something doesn't mean Nintendo are going to change something in the game.

BTW, the official name is Legendary Beasts.

No, it's not. Neither Nintendo nor Game Freak has ever called them anything but Pokemon.
