    I am little bit disappointed that there was not a new legendary trio this time around.

    So there's only three Legendary Pokemon? The XYZ trio? There probably will be some event Pokemon, but I have mixed feelings about the Legendary Pokemon. On one hand I kinda like the small number of Legendary Pokemon in Kalos, at least that we know of. On the other hand I really loved the challenge of hunting down legendary Pokemon. It was my favorite thing to do in post-game of Platinum along with all the rematches and Battle Zone. So I don't know where I stand on it. I think we should wait more. There will probably be more legends once we get the games and explore ourselves. Either way I'm good.

    The National Dex from 650 (Chespin) to 718 (Zygarde) is completely accounted for, so there's nothing hiding there. And of the portions of the National Dex respective to the previous five regions, there's only one Legendary Pokémon that follows the third titular Legendary (Cresselia after Giratina) that isn't an event Pokémon.

    The rapid-fire, slap-dash nature of coverage up to this point makes some of a case for there being material yet to be uncovered, but right now it doesn't appear there are any Legendaries to which we are not privy that are not event Pokémon.

    The definition of legendary pokemon is, and has been, "a pokemon of which there is only one per game (barring external means like trading and/or events), has higher base stats than other pokemon and has a low catch rate." That's the only standard I can think of that has been applicable throughout all generations. And I think the point made earlier, about having to have played from the early gens to understand, is more to do with how less connected one was.

    Now with the possibility of global trading, and easy to manipulate cloning, it's easy for one to amass a large collection of legendary pokemon. Also, as many legendaries are barred from multiplayer play, most of them are just trophies now. But back in the older days of link trading, I (and my pokemon playing friends) jealously hoarded our Mewtwos and Birds, and eventually our Lugias, Ho-Ohs and Beasts. If someone bungled catching one of them, it would take a lot of negotiation to get us to agree to a trade.

    When I first saw Zygarde, I was like 'Whut?'. My 3DS wouldn't display the image on Serebii, so I found it somewhere else and thought it was fake- it kind of makes me think of something from Scooby-Doo. However, after some time's past, I've gotten more used to it and think it's kind of neat.

    I read somewhere that the XYZ trio are apparently based on norse mythology, wherein a deer, eagle, snake and squirel live in a large tree. Perhaps the squirel will be a cutesy event pokemon.

    Ha, I didn't even notice there wasn't a minor trio when I first looked, but know that you mention it that is weird, and a fairy trio would've seemed likely before today. Although...I can think of an older trio that I could absolutely see being turned fairy/psychic.
    I'm looking for a Serperior named Serpedera. It'll be at lvl 98 or above. If you happen to have such a pokemon please PM me.

    Really? I didn't know that. It's strange there's no trio Legends. Unless XYZ are the new legendary trio.

    The Legendary Birds/titans/mirages/whatevers are the "Trio" of this gen. They act as they did in Platinum and roam around randomly.

    Their stats and game boxart disagree. I, for one, like the lack of a trio: it puts into perspective the rarity of the Xerneas, Yveltal, and Zygarde. (and possible squirle-thing). Plus its less to complete.

    Remember, though: Platinum also had the pixies. And the birds aren't really the trio of this gen as much as a trio appearing in this gen, like they did in every other generation except 5.

    I hadn't even thought about there being no legendary trio :| Now that I think about it, I'm kinda sad This game has so much new content though. I think the content will make up for everything.

    This may be of interest to some people - this video reveals Zygarde's other Pokédex entry:

    When the Kalos region's ecosystem falls into disarray, it appears and reveals its secret power.
    Perhaps this is foreshadowing for an alternate forme, and maybe even the plot of the next games to a degree.

    Probably. I'm already excited for the future. 8D

    If I didn't know what Zygarde looked like, I would have thought he was a funny, lit-up cave tree. XD

    Really curious on what the new events are. Maybe some are just Megas for old Pokemon?

    Although the idea of alternate formes of Zygarde would be cool, I'm afraid this could lead to Pokemon ZY and ZX or something, like Kyruem to Zekrom or Reshiram. The idea would be relatively simple, and a lot like the plot of Black 2 and White 2. Team Flare steal a legendary (in this case Yveltal or Xerneas, depending on the version), and screw with the environment to attract Zygarde, who they then use its powers to be the opposite of what kind of Pokemon is trapped by Flare. Zygarde then changes forme. I can't say I'm against sequels, a new storyline + gyms? Great! But still. It would be nice to get a battle frontier...

    Well in that case, Mewtwo resembles an overgrown Squirrel, so it all makes sense!

    Mewtwo. . .
    A squirrel?
    But, the squirrel is a messenger. Something Mewtwo is not.

    As far as legendaries go, I'm pretty satisfied with what we have. I'm sure we will find some hidden in x/y later on, as we did with diamond/pearl and darkrai etc.
    I only hope to see that as we continue to find more megas, we find more mega legends!
    Mega mewtwo is cool but.....mega mew? Mega articuno...Mega Ho-oh . god help you if mega raquaza rages *cough* mega arceus*hax*

    God no, no mega legendaries. I'm not fond on the megaevolutions idea, and certainly no legends.
    They have an unique appearance, and it should just stay that way.
    I do hope, now we don't have alot of legends, that they will be distributing older events too. I'm affraid alot of the upcoming events will be new mega forms however

    In the first movie, Mewtwo sent Dragonite as its messenger.

    Therefore, Dragonite is a squirrel.

    Kidding. I think if we get a squirrel, it would be an event legendary.

    Hoenn has disappointed.

    P.S. I get tired of complaints from great games.

    I gotta disagree. No more old event legendaries. I agree 100% with event Megas, frankly kinda seems like the only way we are ever all gonna get to see a new pokemon at the same time. But constantly recycling legendaries every generation as events takes away from it. You want a Mew? Shoulda had to win Nintendo Power back in the day or snag if from a relevant event to a movie or frlg. Thats how you do a legendary. Not let people get three of each per generation. I know it sounds kinda harsh, but if that was the case and someone pulled a Celebi on you years past any of their availability don't you think it'd be a tad more awe inspiring and legendary?

    Hey sorry if this has been said but a thought came to me when I thought about all the gens and their main legendaries. They respond to the gen like
    gen 1 mewtwo
    gen 2 lugia and ho oh
    gen 3 kyoger, rayquaza, groudon (sorry bad speller)
    gen 4 diaga, palkia, giratina, giratina (alt form)
    gen 5 reshiram, zekrom, kyrem, black kyrem, white kyrem
    gen 6 xerneas, xerneas(form), yveltal, z
    so I think xyz will all have alt forms so we will have 6.

    Has anybody actually seen Articuno yet? Moltres and Zapdos look great in game. I know no one knows how to catch them yet, but everyone just stopped talking about them before Articuno was discovered. If anyone knows where I could find a seen entry or a "wild articuno fled" shot, I'd love them forever.
