View Full Version : Regular or Legendary?

April 16th, 2009, 3:39 PM
Would you prefer to have regular pokemon or legendary pokemon? I prefer having regular pokemon because in its own way they are very special! :) What about you?

April 16th, 2009, 3:46 PM
Well, my favourite Pokemon are Espeon, Blaziken and Jirachi (though I prefer Espeon and Blaziken to Jirachi :() so I'd say I prefer regular Pokemon :D. Mainly because nearly all of the regular Pokemon can be used in competitive battling and about or more than half of legendaries cant, plus to me, regular Pokemon seem more special. :3

I'd rather use regular Pokemon. Speaking from a competitive standpoint, legendaries receive a lot of credit they don't deserve, but they're hyped about to the point where other players dread their appearance in a tournament. If anything, they can be used as a scare tactic, but only against a certain group of people. When comparing the two types, a legendary is just a Pokemon with notoriety from the series, since their stats can equally compare.

I like to use regular pokemon in terms of battling normally, I use legendary pokemon when versing computers in the game. Using legendary when versing a friend is kinda lame. But when we both agree to use legendarys, I'll use them.

I generally prefer to use normal pokemon since often you have to train them from a lower level, which makes it feel more of an achievement when you actually fight with them

Regular, naturally. Legendaries are to be left in their habitat and protect the local Pokemon from danger such as the infamous Team Rocket gang. Also, they're really overpowered and would probably feel that they were superior to me :(

Back when I was a total noob and I recieved my first pokemon game I thought getting a legendary was so cool. Now, I feel as though nothing could compare to those of a regular pokemon. It is true legendaries are powerful and all, but they are like any other pokemon just have higher stats from a competetive player's view. I truly like regular pokemon better as I prefer originatlity and regular pokemon...well, there is just so much too choose from. :)

I agree when you say Legendaries deserve to stay in their natural habitat; that is exactly the way I think it should be too...:)

I like using some Legendaries, but not the "Uber" kind. I keep it 'Simple and Clean' with my Pokemon.

April 16th, 2009, 5:56 PM
Regular Pokemon for me. Just me and my Drifblim...

I only use regulars, but I will use legendaries in a battle if the other guy is.

I choose Legendary Pokemon. My choice has nothing to do with their stats.
In fact, I love legendaries because they are always very mysterious and have such an ancient aura.
I've always been more spiritual then physical, and legendaries have that spiritual feeling to them.
Something regular Pokemon don't possess.

Not all legendaries are uber.

I rather have a regular Pokémon as my companions than a Legendary. To be honest, both are really the same, but on one side; there are more options to choose from. However, on the other, one finds overrated stats.

Also, I would pick my Sceptile or Blaziken over Kyogre or Groudon anyday. :3

April 16th, 2009, 6:30 PM
C'mon, using legendaries is boring. :/

April 16th, 2009, 6:49 PM
I like regulars because they are unique in their own way.....

I've have a regular Pokemon, but most of my favorites are typical Pokemon, not Legendary.

Plus, if I had a legendary Pokemon, people would never leave me the heck alone. D:
Cause they'd want it.

April 16th, 2009, 7:41 PM
I never have legendaries in my team. Training them and using them for battles just feels like cheating, there's little challenge in it.

Plus pretty much all of my favourite Pokémon are regulars (Though a few are pseudo-legendaries), so 'regulars' gets my vote :D

Regular...I hate legends...although my favorite legend is Darkrai...

April 16th, 2009, 9:18 PM
Regular, I love poison types and unfortunately there is no poison legendary :c

April 16th, 2009, 9:22 PM
The only legendaries I ever use are Uxie and Azelf.
Props go out to Jirachi, Heatran, and Cresselia, though.

Regular Pokemon. I like Water type Pokemon.

April 17th, 2009, 12:07 AM
Even though some legendaries are cute... I prefer regular Pokemon to battle.
Legendaries takes the fun out of battling. :/

April 17th, 2009, 1:30 AM
Regular, I find it more fun, Legendaries take some of the fun out of battling

April 17th, 2009, 7:25 AM
Regular pokemon of course. Legendaries take the fun out of it, battles are way too easy, you can't breed them, and what's the point of EV training when they get 300+ in all their stats anyway?

April 17th, 2009, 7:41 AM
I'd rather use regular Pokemon.
Legendaries are neat and all, and lots of fun to hunt down and catch, but they take the challenge out of pretty much everything in-game.

April 17th, 2009, 7:43 AM
depends what you mean:

legendary's in battle NO!

however the idea of legendarys is a very good one...

April 17th, 2009, 7:43 AM
I prefer regular pokemon as their breedable.

Depends on how useful they are in OU. So... that pretty much rules out Luvdisc, Entei, Regigigas, etc.

April 17th, 2009, 3:05 PM
i would definitely use regular pokemon because all of my favorite pokemon are regular.

No. I like my Psychic, Dragon, and Fighting Pokemon.
Regular, I love poison types and unfortunately there is no poison legendary :c
Poison types are win, win.

April 17th, 2009, 4:53 PM
I keep a policy of using only regular pokemon. If you pay attention to the pokedex, you'll note that many legendaries are supposed to be supporting/embodying/holding together a particular concept, ideal, or natural phenomenon. Personally, I'd rather Arceus be in his/her/its proper place overseeing the safety of the universe rather then used for the petty art of battling other pokemon. Not to mention the fact that he/she/it created the universe.

April 17th, 2009, 7:58 PM
Regular by far, it's not fun using Legendaries take the fun out of a lot of things, more challenging raising your pokes to be good and get stronger, for me legendaries are more of a bragging right.

April 18th, 2009, 5:22 AM
Regular, it's less predictable and you don't feel like a cheat haha.

April 18th, 2009, 1:25 PM
I would say regular because with regular pokemons, you can watch them grow and using them to battle is more challenging but fun. I also like legendary ones too but when you battle with them, something seems to be missing, or out of place because they're way to powerful and defeating everybody with just them just doesn't seem fun anymore. I think during battles the more challenge there is the more thoughts you'll put into it and much more enjoyable.
