Everyone needs a little less signature in their lives
Why put back the 1st gen trio, what is their storyline and relevance in this new generation?
I think the term "legendary" lost its meaning once they started to put 12-15 legendaries in the games.

To any appreciable, consistant and/or official degree, it never meant "deep and detailed back story", it never meant "only a certain number of them", it never meant anything like that. Those are descriptions people like to apply to them arbitrarily and then complain when they're brushed aside just as arbitrarily.
The term never had a significant meaning able to be lost, and certainly not lost in the face of greater numbers.
Seeing as how, unlike the Legendary Pokémon of the first few Gens, the later Legendary Pokémon actually were described in myths, I would say that the term actually lived up to its meaning once they started adding in 14 per Gen. Before then, "Legendary" Pokémon were really just "fairly more powerful than other Pokémon" Pokémon.
Is it just me or is Xerneas way better than Yveltal stats wise?
I'm not getting these big fails, but has any one else heard the claiming of a " LAVADOS "? It might be a mega evolution of moltress but the ending ados reminds me of gyarados, not sure if its even real. Anyway it surely seems like a legendary

I'd define them as generally being 'rare' and not being obtainable by normal means, or breeding. Sure I'd put Groudon and Entei in different categories being that one is minor and the other roams.
Then too with Pokemon as a whole, 'power' can allude to them being 'powerful' whether it be defensively or offensively.
You'd kind of have to grow up with the first generation to get the full understanding of legendaries and their rarity.
Spoiler:- My Website + Ask.fm:
Regardless, just because Legendary Pokémon in Gen I shared a trait or two doesn't not mean that all subsequent Legendary Pokémon must share that trait. That is the kind of logic that leads to stagnation, because if ideas must fit into a certain mold, they become limited in the ways that they can change and develop and be unique.

since there is no legendary trio for kalos, do you think the bird trio will get mega forms? im really disappointed that we didn't get a fairy trio or something! kinda sucks... but if older trio pkmn are getting mega forms then i'll be happy ^_^

I RNG, If you have any requests just PM me. Also, I have many RNGd legends, events, and more.
I still kind of fail to see how playing the first game versus others somehow skew my perspective on legendaries. :I
