    Articuno is my favourite of the three, likely because of its colouration and that long tail. If I cared about competitive then I'd probably like it less solely because of its awkward typing, but because I don't...

    It is also my favourite Kanto legendary, if only because I don't like any of the remaining four enough for them to steal that slot.

    Current mono-type: TFL, Round 4
    Game: Black 2 (6/8)

    Articuno for sure. Aesthetically it is one of my favorites, and I agree with AnonNekomata with it's coloration. I typically prefer blue legendaries for some reason. Favorite legendary beast, and all around legendary is Suicune, favorite of the weather trio is Kyogre, Regice of the golems, etc.

    Not to mention Articuno seemed the most predominant of the three in 2000: The Power of One. Him being the last orb and all.

    I never liked Zapdos, it just looks stupid IMO. Same with Articuno, I guess - didn't realize it 'till I wrote this post. I suppose you can guess who I voted for then?

    I've always favored Zapdos over the other legendary birds. It has quite a striking design and has balanced stats. It's concept and the basis of it's design are also interesting.

    Zapdos. The other ones are missing that... zing. I dunno.

    On a slightly side-tracked note, what is the relationship between the birds and Lugia/Ho-oh? Is there anything canon?

    Ever since I was a kid I always thought that Zapdos was the strongest and the best...
    But now that I grew up and think about it....I think Moltres takes the cake!

    Articuno's my favourite of the three because it's awesome and looks really nice, closely followed by Moltres cuz it's a Fire-type.

    Always loved Moltres's design. Now if it had the power to back that up it might be my favorite. But I really do think Zapdos will always be my favorite though.

    Articuno, blizzard was amazing in gen 1. Zapdos isn't bad but Moltres.... a giant chicken on fire and it was the worst of the 3. :P

    I'll stay with Articuno. His design was awesome and he was probably the best of them. And to be sincere... He was the only one I was able to caught. Both Zapdos and Moltres died when I was trying to catch 'em, haha!

    Articuno was the best of the three. A great special stat, coupled with great typing (for the time) and design keep it at number 1, with Moltres as runner-up.

    Articuno is my favorite to this day just because it is so elegant and ice is my favorite type! I was surprised Articuno was the most popular one according to the poll, I thought Zapdos took the cake with the majority. I was very happy to find out the three birds are the roaming Pokemon in Kalos

    Articuno is my favorite too... It's mainly its design. ^^; I really like Zapdos as well.

    I personally never liked Moltres. I don't know what it is about its design, but it just doesn't interest me at all. I tried using one in Blue version too, but I found Charizard to be more reliable and I eventually abandoned Moltres. I really think Articuno was the best Legendary Bird in Gen 1 based on its design and overall movepool.

    For some reason, I never could manage to catch any legendary Pokémon without a Master Ball, aside from Zapdos. I always wanted Zapdos because of its awesome design, thinking that it would be the best to take to the Pokémon League. Of course, my infantile brain back then could not comprehend that Articuno would easily plow through Lance and Blue.

    When I was younger Zapdos was my favourite, but as I grew up I'm more leaning towards Articuno.

    Zapdos, while cool, is a little too spiky for my liking and I'm rather indifferent towards Moltres, so gonna have to go with Aritcuno! Love its elegance and sleek design compared to the other two. Plus it has one of most soothing cries, even among newer Pokemon, especially compared to the horrible screech that is Moltres's cry. Did not like chasing that thing down in Y... >_>

    Also something weird I've noticed, while I love Electric as a type I'm not all too fond of a lot of Electric-type Pokemon, especially the mono ones. :/ Found myself liking Ground types a lot more.

    Aritcuno all the way and I think many share my opinion: it's an elegant beast.

    Moltres is my favourite, although sometimes it changes between Moltres and Zapdos (for some reason Articuno never really comes into it). I've always been a fan of the Fire types so I guess that's my reasoning.

    Zapdos, both design-wise and in game. Articuno as close second, however not a big fan of Moltres.

    See, I've always like Moltres. It's bizarre really, since I'm not much of a fan of fire types. But since I was a child, it's always been Moltres, I've always liked the idea of a fire bird and this was before Ho-Oh, so I saw it as the phoenix rising from the flames! I can see why Articuno is the favourite due to its typing and elegance but Moltres was the original "phoenix" before Ho-Oh came along in Gen 2.
