Top Tuesday: Favorite Legendary Pokemon

Happy Tuesday!

It’s time for another quick top list.

Who’s your favorite legendary Pokemon?

5. Latios & Latias

Right away, I’m cheating. But Latios and Latias are a set, so I’d be crazy to just list one of them. Both Dragon- and Psychic-types from the Hoenn region and star in the Pokemon: Heroes movie, which is a great movie. I think that’s why I love these two so much.

4. Rayquaza

Also from the Hoenn region, Rayquaza is a Dragon- and Flying-type. I’ve never actually used him before, but he’s majestic and wonderful. And I really like his design.

3. Xerneas

Xerneas… a majestic Fairy-type from the Kalos region. He’s powerful and he too has a cool design. I love him as a Pokemon, but I mainly love the fact that his antlers look like they glow in the dark.

2. Solgaleo

A Psychic- and Steel-type from the Alola region, I absolutely love Solgaleo. He’s powerful, like most legendaries, but I especially love him because I love lions. No, they’re not my favorite animal, but I when I was younger and thought I’d be going to Professor Xavier’s X-Men Institute, I figured my powers would be to transform into a lion.

1. Entei

Going all the way back to Johto, where my journey officially began, Entei is my favorite out of the legendary trio. This is mainly because he’s a Fire-type, but also because I loved him in the movie, Spell of the Unown.

Of Legendaries

Double Jump Kris Mii Happy Monday! Kris here!

Pokemon is continuing with their Legendary giveaways with their 20th anniversary celebration. Have you been keeping up with them?

Besides the list of Legendaries that they’re giving away via the Nintendo Internet links and the GameStop cards, they’re also being free with extras like the Shiny Xerneas and Shiny Yvetal to tie in with a special trading card game sets. They’re definitely fun extras and fantastic for your game collections.

However, on Rachel’s and my journey the other day to visit various GameStops to each get enough Darkrai cards (because why not, right?), I had a, “Back in my day…” moment.

Basically, back in my day of the original Red/Blue/Yellow versions and beyond, we all had to go through the game, raise an army of Pokemon, and spend too much time lugging Ultra Ball after Ultra Ball at Mewtwo in the Cerulean Cave (because we had already used our Master Ball on one of the legendary bird trio).

Now, between my X/Y and Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire versions, I’m pretty sure I have enough Mewtwo for a full team.

I’m thankful for the generous opportunity to receive all these legendary Pokemon for my games, of course, but… I don’t know, I feel as if we’re missing out on the feeling of anticipation, excitement, and satisfaction of catching the “one and only” legendaries of the games.

Maybe I’m just old.
