I just tought that it's somewhat weird that there isn't a legendary Pokemon that evolves. So what do you think? If they make more, shoul there be evolving Pokes?

No, Phione does not evolve into Manaphy. In fact, Phione doesn't evolve at all.


Jirachi, Manaphy, and Phione are the only legendary Pokemon to have not been given an in-game location in the main series as of yet.

@ MarsOperaPhantom : I guess you didn't look near the bottom of Manaphy's page?

Ohohoho! No, no, no! It would ruin the fact that they are complete! That is why they do not evolve, because they are complete as Pokemon! Well, that's what Rowan says.

Legendary Pokémons should not evolve. That would ruin the purpose of their originality.

Well, Heatran does not have a back-story, and I see no one complaining about this.

Well Arcanine is a "legendary" and it has a pre-evolution

Well Arcanine is a "legendary" and it has a pre-evolution Which makes it technically not a Legendary Pokémon, even though it's 'legendary'.

I don't think Heatran is legendary since you can catch it as a male or female like Sudowodo in G/S/C so if there are future versions I wouldn't be surprised if Heatran cam back like in Emerald with Sudowodo

When i played Red for the first time almost 10 years ago, I didn't realise that the birds was anything special but everyone knew Mewtwo wasn't something ordinary. Duh is what I'm thinking now. But the point is that it was so cool with a Pokemon that you could only catch once and that was really good against the "normal" pokemon then. But now it is like "Oh i caught a legendary with a PokeBall... Awesome. Only 8 left!!!". It's not that interesting anymore. Futhermore I think that some are way too easy to find and catch. Well the Regis wasn't that easy but i caught all three with ordinary PokeBalls on the first try. What the hell is that?! If i remember right Zapdos in Red/Blue/especially Yellow was very difficult to catch when it had a hellalotta speed. And that's how it's supposed to be.

nope. the more the legendaries there are the batter the game is.. XD

There is no point in having too many legendaries. The point with them is that there is like one per game and are hard to catch. Or do you think that a Rattata should be legendary as well?

True Pokémon like Arcanine and Ninetales are regarded as legendary in a sense.

But if you talking about legendary Pokémon the like the birds, the beasts the golems etc. I think if legendary Pokémon evolved it would kind of go against everything they stand for. Legendary Pokémon are meant to be Pokémon at the peak of their power that have survived thousands of years unchanged and for them to change would go against that I think.

Legendary Pokémon should not and will not evolve. Ever. I shouldn't need to back up my statement.

This, exactly.
Though, enlighten me, why are Arcanine and Ninetales regarded as legendary(-ish)? I know Arcanine has the highest base stats of the non-legends, psuedo legends and Slaking, but... what makes him legendary?

I think that they aren't "legendary" in the games, the anime has made them seem legendary.

Evolving legendaries would be a unique idea. However, the main problem is that if they evolve, they wouldn't be so much legendary as much as they would be an 'even higher power'. Plus, I never really liked the idea of human controlling an extremely higher power.

the legendary pokemon in the games arent goint to evolve. with platinum though they brought out a whole new idea with being able to change giratina and shaymins forms.
thats the peak of the legendarys potential as in evolving or changing.

This is why Arcanine is "legendary"

Prof. Rowan in pokemon platinum was talking about how pokemon who do not evolve, like legendaries, might not evolve because they are complete the way they already are.

Might be true

I think the stats happen to be a coincidence, but it's just his pokedex entry that states it's a legendary, it's like how Togepi is the Spike Ball Pokemon & Pikachu is the Mouse Pokemon....

I think that they aren't "legendary" in the games, the anime has made them seem legendary.
Actually Arcanine was only regarded as being Legendary in the 2nd episode (It was shown on a tablet with Articuno, Zapdos, & Moltres...)

I got a question for Feaw...do you happen to have something against Arcainine? (I mean I don't want anyone dissing Arcanine...I just gotta clear this up)

No! No! No!
Please no more legendaries!
There are too many as it is.
An evolutionary line of legendaries
would take it way to far.
