What's your least favourite legendary Pokemon and why?

Arceus, definitely. It's stupid-looking, overhyped, and overpowered even by legendary standards. Plus, the concept of a "god" Pokemon was just stupid.

I actually like the majority of legendaries, however if I had to choose one to dislike it would be Regigigas, the three regis were alright but some reason they took it a step too far with Regigigas.

Manaphy and Phione (sp?) they're creepy looking & are pretty much not really needed seeing as there are a lot better water legendaries out there.

I never saw the point in having the Lake Trio, except for the sake of the DPPt plot. I don't like them and never saw a use for them battling-wise, except for maybe Azelf.

And I don't like Articuno that much either. Battling-wise, it's horrible defensively. Its design isn't too bad, though.

For me, it's always been Celebi. There have been a lot of mediocre legendaries with Gen IV and V, but none that have made me angry like Celebi did. I never liked how it was introduced as a Mew-knock-off. And an ugly-looking Mew-knock-off to boot. And a Grass-type ugly-looking Mew-knock-off to bring it all home. When I actually got my hands on one, the critter ended up being a massive disappointment in addition to all of the pre-release 'hype'. So... yeah. I really dislike Celebi.

Even though I used Articuno in LeafGreen, I eventually grew to dislike it because of its bad defensive typing and shallow movepool.

Honorable mention goes to Regigigas for having a crippling ability to counterbalance its good stats.

The legendary beasts, cos they look weird although Suicune is my fave of the trio.

Also, the legendary birds. All except Zapdos have 4x Rock weaknesses and you know that Rock attacks are common in competitive play.

And last but not least, Heatran. PURE UGLINESS.

Definately Entei, it has grey metal fangs and the hair of a viking warrior which look a little unappealing

The little ones that are meant to be cute and Heatran etc... imo they don't really resemble legendaries so I can't really buy into them... sorry!

If they were regular pokémon it probably wouldn't bother me haha :)

___________________________________________________________

I can't stand Kyurem at all. It's typing is sort-of interesting, but it's design makes it look like a freeze-dried chicken and it's movepool is pretty dire. Black and White Kyurem look like bits of 30 Pokemon glued together. How unaestheticly pleasing.

I'd have to say the retarded duckling known as Cresselia, uninsipring design wise and boring to use playability wise if you ask me. That and it just feels like a filler Poke if anything imo.

I like them all but if I had to choose, it would be the Legendary Golems. Despite how strong they are, they just looked weird.

Hrmm....I guess Girantina. There were so many better designs they could have used. Girantina-O isn't as bad, but still. Ghost/Dragon could have been like, possessed dinosaur/dragon bones or something.

Zephele
June 22nd, 2012, 10:04 AM
Uh. I don't know why it's so difficult for me to answer this. Maybe it's because when there's a legend I don't like, I sort of just ignore it or block it from memory or something, haha. It's even harder to answer given how I don't like using legendary Pokemon in game.

I guess if I had to choose, it'd be Manaphy. It's kinda cute, but... I don't know. A lot of the non-title legends introduced in Gen IV are fairly meh for me.

June 22nd, 2012, 10:10 AM
Mewtwo, Mew, Entei, Celebi, Jirachi, Deoxys, Mesprit, Azelf, Uxie, Dialga, Shaymin, Manaphy, Arceus. I hate them all equally, and each are my least favorites. They're completely stupid. They each have a ridiculous story, each have some power that you would think would make them all mighty, but then THE POWER OF FRIENDSHIP MAKES THEM REALIZE THAT THEY SHOULD NOT USE THIS ALL MIGHTY POWER. Plus, I don't like any of their move pools, looks, nothing. I like nothing about them at all.

I personally can't stan Arceius. It's just annoying and it's movie was horrid. I don't really hate his design, there are uglier Pokemon, but I can't stand Arceius despite it.

Mentalii
June 24th, 2012, 08:01 AM
Tornadus. I'm disappointed that it's just a simple-type, I hate its design, I things it's the most ugly of every legendaries. This colour scheme is awful. It's also pretty weak to my mind.

Pidgey
June 30th, 2012, 04:09 PM
I wouldn't say I don't like Phione and Manaphy, though I don't think they really seem like legendary Pokémon. I mean, they're rare, but so are Rotom and the pseudo legendaries in most regions, so I don't see why those two have to be considered legendaries.

For the one I actually dislike, I'd have to say Arceus. It just seem like it kinda stole the fame from Mewtwo, who was supposed to be the world's strongest Pokémon, but completely dominating it with the highest leveled Pokémon you can encounter in the wild, and with it's title as Pokémon God, which just made me dislike it really much. And to add to that, I really hate its design. I never expected the God of all Pokémon to be a space goat :<

Regigigas; it looks incredibly awkward. Unfortunately I am at a loss to say more.

Phione, A.K.A, the Water type Glalie. It has bad stats all around, looks ugly, and its just not a very good Pokemon.

Sodom
July 5th, 2012, 07:09 PM
Manaphy, Phione, Shaymin, Landorus, Thundurus, Tornadus.

The first three are just pointless, and the second three are plain ugly and made me think they're really running out of ideas for legendary trios. The best part of Black/White was the Legendary Pokemon - most of them are amazing - but those three just made me angry.

Aerinoctis
July 8th, 2012, 12:52 PM
The better question would be what legendaries do I like! I dislike all the legendaries with the exception of Jirachi, Celebi, Lugia, Ho-Oh, Suicune, Mew, Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, Cobalion, Keldeo, Meloetta, and Zekrom. Mostly because I dislike the designs of all of the others.

July 10th, 2012, 11:39 PM
I don't like any legendary. I mean they're needed in the game, but people just use them for a cheap win online and it takes hardly any skill. Although if I had to choose I'd have to say it's a tie between Landorus, thundurus, tornadus, and Arceus. The legendary trio because they don't need any more legendaries in Black and White and they just seemed like add-ons. Arceus because noobs who don't feel like working hard to make your team unstoppable use him.

SnowpointQuincy
July 11th, 2012, 02:41 AM
If I can't breed them, I don't give a F***!

I love hatching eggs, egg moves, IV Breeding, EV training.

I can't do they with Legends, so STOP MAKING 10+ Legends each GEN.

Dialga, Palkia, Gritania, Arcues, Darkrai, Creseslia, Shymin, Mesprit, Uxie, Azelf, Heatran, Regigigias.

11 Legendaries. A Little Much? Did I miss any?

vaporeon7
July 11th, 2012, 09:14 AM
Cresselia, Tornadus or Thundurus. None of their designs ever really appealed to me and they're all super annoying to have to battle. The only reason Landorus isn't there is because I used one a lot in White and it has been very good to me.

@SnowpointQuincy, I agree 11 legendaries is waaaaaaaay too much. What happened to having 5 in the fist gen? Also, did you realize more and more legendaries are added in each gen? In gen I there was 5, Gen II there was 6 in Gen II, 10 in gen III, (there are way too many in RSE), Gen IV had 11, and gen 5 had like 12 or 13.

After 2nd generation, Legendaries got stupid. I especially hate Arceus, mostly because of it's stats. Every dumbass 12 year old hacks a team of Arceus and thinks they are hot ****. It's annoying.

Shaymin and Jirachi are absolutely adorable though.

Pokemon Trainer UV
August 11th, 2012, 02:43 PM
Manaphy, Phione, Shaymin, Landorus, Celebi, Thundurus, Tornadus, Arceus, Darkrai

Manaphy, Phione, and Shaymin are pointless.

Celebi is a Mew-wannabe. Sure, it was the original "time" Pokemon, but for me, Dialga was much cooler for the "time" thing. Guardian of the Forest my arse; a lot of other Pokemon are more fit to protect the forest.

The Kami Trio all just look really bad to me, but since I haven't played Black or White, I wouldn't really know their effectiveness. However maybe their new beast forms will redeem their current poor designs that are pretty much just recolors of each other.

Darkrai. As I sad in the Underrated/Overrated Pokemon thread, it's just a wannabe Mewtwo that was awful in its own movie.

Arceus, the God Pokemon. It was really annoying in its own movie, its design is pretty awkward, and it just isn't very impressive. It's a behemoth in competitive play, sure, but it's also overused...

Snowdrop
August 11th, 2012, 02:58 PM
Darkrai pisses me off. Everyone loves it, and I've never even heard its cry let alone obtained one.

^ Eeyup. I'm anything but a fan of Darkrai. Reminds me of an emo kid lololol

But of ALL the legendaries, I despise those genies. All three of them I hate equally. Horrendous designs, even in their alternate forms (Which I'll be nice and say they're not quite as awful as the original forms). A complete missed idea for good legendaries. Plus, there were already two trios in Gen V, the Tao and the Musketeers. Did we really need the Genies? :/

Arceus. Literally, why the **** does it exist? I hate, hate, hate, hate, HATE it. It's just a goat. PLUS IT IS A MEW AND MEWTWO WANNABE!

Also, the genies are just ****. Game Freak has been running out of ideas, and now their dooming the whole Pokemon World with bad legendarys.

Seriously, Arceus is like the worst legendary ever.

Yes, I strongly defend my hate for Arceus and the Genies.

September 1st, 2012, 08:39 PM

Its a frigging goat stuck in a hoop. It should go die in a hole or something. The movie just made it worse imo.
Aside from that, the Landorus group seems really unnecessary along with Victini and Shaymin.

I don't like Latias/Latios, they're just not interesting to me and their designs look kinda silly. Plus they're horrible to face in battle when spamming their over-powered Draco Meteor and such and their signature moves aren't even worth glancing at, they just don't appeal to me as Pokemon. Although I know they're very popular so it'd be nice if someone could explain why x]

October 1st, 2012, 08:36 PM
First off is Arceus. Why do countless numbers of people think this Pokemon is the most powerful legendary? It has a ridiculous design in my opinion,it just looks like an old goat with some swirly,fancy golden rings around it's body :P.Also without any plate,it isn't very special,just a normal type.Yes it can learn moves like Judgement, but I never found it appealing at all move or design wise.

Then there's Heatran.This creature whatever it is,is horrible. It has so many weaknesses-Water,Fighting,a 4x weakness to ground. It looks ugly in my opinion,some plump creature with metal jaws and glaring eyes :|.

Wheaties
October 1st, 2012, 08:46 PM
I'm going to be boring and agree with some of what you guys have already said: Cresselia. Le boring. And Regigigas. Still have no clue how to pronounce it's name even. :pink_no:
In fact, I think all the Gen IV legendaries were epic fails (pun intended). I tend to look at them more from a design aspect however, and the only one I sort of enjoy is Dialga. But I've never really payed attention to them after they've been caught and stored neatly in a box.

Arceus has the highest stats of all pokemon.

And heatran only has 3 weaknesses, compared to its 10 resistances.

My least favorite would be Arceus, a god pokemon is just a bit of a stupid idea. Especially since its a goat.

Never been a fan of cresselia or phione.

All those cutesy legendaries like: Shaymin, Phione, Manaphy, Celebi, Jirachi, the Emotion trio or whatever they were called. I also dont like the tornadus/landorus/thunderus trio, Palkia, or Arceus. I think volcarona is stupid looking if you count it as a legendary. Im not too fond of latias/latios either.

LenSho
October 13th, 2012, 02:52 PM
Phione, it's just another slot in the Pokédex. It's weaker than Manaphy and they're both useless. The lake Trio are pointless to me too, they're like the same Pokémon with the same type, only with different stats. They could have at least made them Ice/Water, Fire and Electric, but no.

The genie Trio are just ugly, they look too much like a human, and maybe they tried to make it up with their therian forms, but it didn't help that much. I mean, Tornadus is a bird with a freaking mustache xD

Genesect, it's a bug that has lived for thousands of years. I never thought they would actually make a Cockroach Pokémon xD. At least it doesn't look like one. And Keldeo. No comments, I just don't like it.

RoreyG
October 16th, 2012, 04:26 PM
All of the 4th Gen Legendaries bar Giratina and Darkrai.

Arceus- Why would Pokemon God be a goat jumping through a hula hoop. If I wanted that, I'd just enter my Mareep in a Pokemon Contest.

Dialga and Palkia- I absolutely loathe and despise their CGI style design. something about it just ticks me off.

The emotion trio, Phione and Manaphy- they all look annoying as heck. Even Celebi and Jirachi wasn't that annoying.

AncientWarrior
October 27th, 2012, 07:11 AM
Stat wise, Arceus. Regigigas has OP stats too, but as PlatinumDude said, his ability makes up for that. I'd also say Shaymin. It's stats aren't OP, but its movepool and design are stupid. Even sky form.

I'll go with Palkia. I just don't like it. I'm a bit biased, having played Diamond over Pearl, but I really think its design, concept and typing could have been better. It's ironic, too, because I absolutely love Water-types. And as for how it fits the thread title, even though the thread title isn't the question, Palkia can be overpowered at times, having only a single weakness, unresisted STAB, high Special Attack and good bulk. But come to think of it, I also hate Regigigas a lot, because Slow Start is absolutely horrible, and it's not as original an idea as I'd like legendary Pokémon to be. Regigigas is an obvious choice, though, so apart from him, Palkia's my least favourite.

Arceus has the highest stats of all pokemon.

Very untrue.
20 Pokémon have higher HP than him, 52 have higher attack, 34 have higher defense, 16 have higher speed, 39 have higher Sp. Attack and 22 have higher Sp. Defense.

Sure, it has the highest base stat total. But that means nothing if all his other stats are beaten by countless other Pokémon.

Well thats exactly what i was talking about. And it matters because his stats are still high in every stat. Even if there are pokemon with individual higher stats, Arceus has the highest total, and would have higher stats in the other stats than those pokemon who have one or two higher than arceus.

Never really been a fan of the Regis and Regigigas. Just .. I'm not even sure what to call that thing. I've never liked its design and chances are I'm never going to. Manaphy isn't one that I've gotten around to liking at all yet either.

I used to dislike Shaymin until I won a Sky Shaymin plush. Yeah hard to hate it when you have a big plush of it in your room. Now I really adore the cute little hedgehog.

I don't like most of the tiny/cute legendaries such as Celebi, sea and lake guardians. They just don't look like legendary to me.

Jirachi is pretty neat I think it being extra-terrestrial and sleeping in a meteor, awakening for a short time after like 600 years (I forgot) and giving you a wish. I like its story.

Dunno much about Shaymin and Victini but I like Victini's type combo (psychic/fire).

I can't explain my hatred for the Unova weather trio. They just scream ugly and pointless to me. But really I had a problem for all the new legendaries, besides Meleotta, Kyurem, Zekrom and Reshiram. Previous others I've never really disliked before.
