A massive handfull of legendary pokemon were brought to the table upon DPPt/Sinnoh region's release, but do you think that there were too many? Did the overabundance of these mythical Pokemon, make capturing and owning a one or more of them, less 'special'? Perhaps you were the opposite, maybe you loved the many additions! Why? Did you feel with the inclusion of several new Legendary Pokemon, made capturing one more fun or exciting?

Discuss!

For a little reminder, all the Legendary Pokemon introduced through DPPt were:
  • Dialga
  • Palkia
  • Girantina (Both formes)
  • Arceus
  • Mesprit
  • Azelf
  • Uxie
  • Regigigas
  • Cresselia
  • Darkrai
  • Heatran
  • Shaymin (Both formes)
If I've forgotten any, please let me know!


I found that there were way way way too many legendaries introduced. I've always found and felt that Legendary Pokemon should be far and few between, making them special. In the older generations, (RBY, GSC), legendaries had this aura about them, a rarity, and when I caught them I felt like I'd caught something as precious as a shiny. But now with the excessive amounts of legendaries scattered all over the region, I think that atmosphere, that sense of rarity that they generate upon capture (even battle), has disappeared.
