Though not a big fan of gen 4 in itself and their Pokemon designs, but I'd say it had the best legends. This is not because of Arceus.


When did so many of these answers come up? Gen 4 used to be universally considered to have the worst legends.


I don't think they have bad legends, but 1) There are far too many of them making them, as a whole, seem less legendary and 2) When you have beings representing Space, Time, Antimatter, the human spirit (and in some roundabout way sin) and freaking god, where do you go from there?

But, really, outside of the obligatory trio, box legendaries, Regigigas, and Manaphy, we didn't need much else. Shaymin and Heatran (and Phione, but its legendary status is dubious) felt forced to me.

I'm okay with the moon duo of Cresselia and Darkrai (even though we already have a moon-based Legend Pokemon in Lugia), but they could have been potential box legends down the line.

Gen I had Mewtwo and Mew
Gen II had Lugia
Gen III had Groudon and Rayquaza and Deoxys
Gen IV had Palkia and Giratina and Darkrai and Arceus
Gen V had Zekrom and Meloetta and Genesect


Gen IV wins.

I... I am sorry. It's been around for a while. I am sorry we could not decide on a nicer term. We are the worst. Self-flagellation will begin shortly.

I expected gen 1 to do a little better. I thought Mewtwo was the most popular legend.

The first three gens all had good legends. Gen 4's legends were so bad that I assume most of the people voting for it are being sarcastic. Gen 5 did better, but it still had the Kami trio and Meloetta holding it back.


I have to agree with this. 1,2,and 3 had great legendaries. 4's were abysmal like most of the new pokemon in that gen. 5's were good but not as great as 1-3. I voted for 1 mostly because they were the most memorable and iconic to me.
