So you are a fan of the Pokemon Series but don’t know All Legendary Pokemon Names? Let’s discuss a little bit about this amazing creatures.

Legendary Pokémon are a group of incredibly rare and often very powerful Pokémon, generally featured prominently in the legends and myths of the Pokémon world. A very close related group of Pokemon are the very well known Mythical Pokémon, which are usually event-exclusive. Prior to Generation V, Mythical Pokémon were considered to be Legendary Pokémon in non-Japanese media. But before we talk about All Legendary Pokemon Names let’s discuss some curious facts about them!

Legendary Pokemon Curious Facts:

  • No explicit criteria defines what makes a Pokémon a Legendary Pokémon so the only way to determine their classification is by pure statements from official media, such as the games or anime.
  • Right know Pokemon like Type: Null and Ultra Beasts have some similarities to Legendary Pokémon, but they has not been explicitly confirmed whether or not they are Legendary Pokémon (Global Trade System, will no display then when filtering out legendary and mythical Pokemon; so that seems like a possible tip by the Pokemon Company).
  • The gender of most Legendary Pokémon is unknown (though there are seven notable exceptions: Latios, Latias, Heatran, Cresselia, Tornadus, Thundurus, and Landorus).
  • Each game has a certain amount of Legendary Pokémon, with Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire having the most (an incredible amount of 32).
  • Legendary Pokémon cannot evolve (with the exception of Cosmog ) although many are able to change form and are part of a duo or trio.
  • Mythical Pokémon typically appear at the very end, and Legendary Pokémon immediately before them.
  • Legendary Pokémon typically make their anime debut in a movie, rather than first appearing in a normal episode.
  • They are often only seen by special Trainers, usually Ash Ketchum and people who have a special connection to them. Ill-intentioned people often seek to possess them, due to their power and rarity.
  • In the video games they are rare Pokémon that are not only hard to catch, but can also be hard to find.
