Legendary Pokémon (の ポ ケ モ ン Pokémon of Legends), or Pokémon illusions (の ポ ケ モ ン Phantom Pokémon) are extremely rare, often very powerful Pokémon that are often associated with legends of creation and / or destruction within their endemic regions.

Due to their power, Legendary Pokémon are often the target of Villain Groups that seek to control or change the world within both the anime and the games; in the latter, thwarting such attempts has been integrated into each game's plot since Generation III.

Generation I.

The first generation Legendary Pokémon (の ポ ケ モ ン のDensetsu no Pokemon no Dai Ichi-sedai) are the very first legendary Pokémon to be introduced in the Pokémon series. These Pokémon first appeared in the Kanto region and are often associated with the area.

Kanto introduced four Legendary Pokémon: Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, and Mewtwo.

Legendary Birds

The Legendary Birds (のDensetsu no Tori) are a trio of Legendary Pokémon that resemble birds, consisting of the Ice / Flying-type Articuno (フ リ ー ザ ー Furiizaa), the Electric / Flying-type Zapdos (サ ン ダ ー Sandaa), and the Fire / Flying-type Moltres (フ ァ イ ヤ ー Faiyaa). The Legendary Birds also have regional variants that are seen in the Galar region. Galarian Articuno has the Psychic / Flying type, Galarian Zapdos has the Fighting / Flying type, and Galarian Moltres has the Dark / Flying type.

The Kantonian Legendary Birds first appeared in the games Pokémon Red, Green, and, outside of Japan, Blue Versions. Articuno is hidden within the Seafoam Islands. Zapdos could be found at the Kanto Power Plant, while Moltres could be captured in Victory Road. Pokémon Yellow featured the trio in their previous locations, while later games featuring Kanto moved Moltres to different areas: in FireRed and LeafGreen, the Flame Pokémon was at Mt. Ember; in Mt. Silver in HeartGold and SoulSilver. Pokémon Platinum featured the Legendary Birds as roamingSinnoh after the player character defeats the Pokémon League. In Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness, the three legendary birds appear as Shadow Pokémon and are originally used by Grand Master Greevil. In Pokémon X and Y, one of the birds may be found roaming Kalos after defeating the Pokémon League, with the Pokémon depending on the player character's starter. If the player character chooses Chespin, they will encounter Articuno; if they have Fennekin, they will see Zapdos; and if they picked Froakie, they may catch Moltres. The bird must be encountered 11 times, however, before they will retreat to the Sea Spirit's Den and become available for capture. In Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee !, the trio are featured in their previous locations from Red, Blue, and Yellow.

The Galarian Legendary Birds first appeared in the games Pokémon Sword and Shield in their Expansion Pass. During the story of Crown Tundra, the Galarian Legendary Birds can be encountered at Dyna Tree Hill which triggers a cutscene which all three flee to the three different spots in Galar. Galarian Articuno can be found in the Crown Tundra, Galarian Zapdos is located in the Wild Area, and Moltres can be spotted in the Isle of Armor.

In the anime, all three Legendary Pokémon appear in the film The Power of One, where they reside at Shamouti Island. Local legend claimed that if the three began fighting, only Lugia could calm the birds. Each Legendary has also been shown in the anime episodes, which are listed chronologically below.

In a similar vein to several other Legendary Pokémon, the Legendary Birds are part of a trio, with Lugia serving as a trio master.

Their names come from their controlling element and the numbers one, two, and three in Spanish: "Arctic", referring to the geological area, and "U.N", one; "Zap", a strike associated with electricity, and "DOS", two; and "Molt", from molten other "tres", three.

In the Pokémon Adventures manga, Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres are fused into one Pokémon known as Zapmolcuno.


Mewtwo (ミ ュ ウ ツ ー Mewtwo) is a man-made Pokémon created by scientists in the Pokémon Mansion and is a Psychic type.

Mewtwo originally appeared in Pokémon Red, Green, and Blue as a hidden Pokémon. It could be found within Cerulean Cave after beating the Elite Four and becoming the Kanto region champion.

In the anime, Mewtwo serves as the titular Pokémon in Mewtwo Strikes Back and Mewtwo Returns; in the former, it is revealed that Mewtwo is a genetically-enhanced clone of Mew, commissioned by Giovanni. After being controlled by Giovanni, Mewtwo sets out to control the world with its own clone Pokémon.

In Generation VI, Mewtwo was given two Mega Evolutions, Mewtwo X and Mewtwo Y, which feature different stats and abilities. The stones necessary to cause the evolution are Mewtwonite X, which evolves Mewtwo into Mewtwo X, a Psychic / Fighting-type, and Mewtwonite Y, which evolves Mewtwo into Mewtwo Y, which remains Psychic. The stones could originally be found in Pokémon X and Y, respectively; both can be located in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. In Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee !, these stones can be obtained after going to Cerulean Cave a second time, after catching Mewtwo, and then, defeating Green.

Generation II

The second generation Legendary Pokémon (の ポ ケ モ ン のDensetsu no Pokemon no Dai Ni-sedai) are the second set of Legendary Pokémon introduced in the Pokémon series and originate within the Johto region.

Five Legendary Pokémon debuted in Generation II: Raikou, Entei, Suicune, Ho-Oh, and Lugia.

Legendary Beasts

The Legendary Beasts (のDensetsu no Kemono) consist of the electric type Raikou (ラ イ コ ウ Raikou), the Fire-type Entei (エ ン テ イ Entei), and the water-type Suicune (ス イ ク ン Suikun).

The three Legendaries were originally unidentified Pokémon trapped and killed within the Brass Tower when it burned down due to lightning. Ho-Oh revived the trio with each Pokémon acquiring an attribute of the accident: Raikou, an Electric-type, symbolized the lightning that had struck the tower; Entei, a Fire-type, was the flames that had engulfed the tower; and Suicune, a Water-type, represented the rain that put out the blaze. Those that witnessed the accident and revival of the trio feared their power, causing the beasts to flee. As a result, they are the first roaming Pokémon the player character encounters.

In Pokémon Gold and Silver, the trio will individually wander the Johto region after the player character first encounters them in the Brass Tower. In Pokémon Crystal, the player character is also required to force Team Rocket to vacate the Radio Tower and acquire the Clear Bell to meet Suicune in the Tin Tower. In Pokémon Colosseum the trio was captured by Cipher and transformed into Shadow Pokémon; Each are owned by different admins. In Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, one member may be found roaming Kanto after defeating the Pokémon League; if the player character chose Bulbasaur they may find Entei; if the starter Pokémon is Charmander, then Suicune is roaming; if the player character has Squirtle, then Raikou can be found. The encounters in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver the circumstances are similar to those in Crystal; However, Suicune must be followed throughout the Kanto region until it stops at Route 25, outside Bill's house, where it may be battled. Notably, Eusine chases Suicune throughout the game but is constantly eluded.

All three members of the trio have appeared as a major character of separate movies and in episodes of the anime. An Unown-produced Entei served as an antagonist-turned-protagonist in Spell of the Unown, while a Suicune helped heal a Celebi by purifying a lake's water in Celebi: Voice of the Forest. Shiny versions of each member also appeared in Zoroark: Master of Illusions, where they attempted to defeat a Zoroark.

Not listed here is Raikou's appearance in the Pokémon Chronicles episode Legend of Thunder!, where it was being hunted by members of Team Rocket.

Tower duo

The Tower duo (タ ワ ー デ ュ オ Tawā Duo) is the two bird-like Pokémon the Fire / Flying-type Ho Oh (ホ ウ オ ウ Houou) and the Psychic / Flying-type Lugia (ル ギ ア Rugia).

Known as the "guardian of the skies" and "guardian of the seas", respectively, Ho-Oh and Lugia formerly resided in Ecruteak City, claiming the Tin Tower and Brass Tower. When lightning struck the Brass Tower and burned the building, Lugia escaped to the Whirlpool Islands. Ho-Oh remained long enough to revive three Pokémon that had been trapped within the tower, creating the Legendary Beasts, but left in search of a pure-hearted Trainer; thus, Ho-Oh is considered their trio master.

Both Pokémon appear in the Pokémon Gold and Silver Versions; their method of encounter varies between the games. In Gold, the player character may capture Ho-Oh, a Fire / Flying-type, at the Tin Tower once acquiring a Rainbow Wing
