Phione a legendary?????? Really??? That's teh first time I hear that...no I don't thnk it is a legendary like the others.It is not strong enough and its stats are not high enough. In game I have used it once but it really wasn't something special!
lol first time you heard of it? O.o You know what a Legendary Pokemon represent right? lol
Name: Rainy Garden of Fire
Partner Pokemon: Zeus the Arceus
So...how about I join the conversation?
I'd say that Phione isn't legendary. It's pretty much because I looked up in a website and it said that it isn't legendary, so I believed that. I don't say that a Pokemon is legendary by its strength or by its appearance. If it's legendary, it's legendary.
And I'll answer questionnaire number 5. Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald. The same as Raikou, Suicune and Entei. Right?
Saying Phione isn't Legendary is something you can argue though. For example, Legendary Pokemon are those you cannot catch anywhere and are rare in a breed. Look at all the others. How often can you come across one and faint it and find another in a wild? You don't, that's why you either capture one to control it or you're stuck without one unless starting over (excluding the trade that is.) Manaphy is no different to those of Mew/Celebi/Jirachi/Shaymin/Victini. With that being said, how do you obtain Phione? Only one way realistic. By Manaphy, with a Ditto. Stats doesn't exactly make one a Legendary Pokemon, it's the rarity and how to obtain one.
As for your recent comment about being banned from the Battle Subway? That, also doesn't matter. There are practically two types of Legendary Pokemon. One that are so powerful in every stats, that it's banned from every lower tiers outside of Uber (Mewtwo, Lugia, Ho-Oh, Groudon, Kyogre, Rayquaza, Deoxys, Dialga, Palkia, Giratina, Arceus, Reshiram, Zekrom, Kyurem) along with the cute yet amazing stats of Mew to Victini. And the second set are those of the Trio ones. (Bird Trio, Beast Trio, Golem Trio, Lake Guardian Trio, Kami/Swordsmen Trio) The Trio ones are not realistically banned from the Battle Subway with a few exception. As weak as Phione is, like I stated before, being weak has nothing to do with a Legendary status, it has something to do with the rarity of it. Personally I don't see this relationship to be any different than the Mew/Mewtwo clones, except with a breeding affect.
Hmm, as for the current topic, I think Phione should be legendary because, it can only be obtained if you have the extremely rare Manaphy, which is certainly legendary. Just my thoughts. I don't think I have any referrals, maybe Sector Revenge, but not really.
BACK OFF, YOU CRAZY PERSON!!!!!!!!! JIRACHI IS ADORABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!111
