Why do people think Zoroark, Lucario, and sometimes even Pikachu are legendary! This annoys me.
I think there are two reasons for this, in my opinion:
They assume they are, because Zoroark and Lucario both have their own movies and Pikachu is just the main Pokemon.
They're not Pokemon fans enough to look at official reasons why they aren't legendary.

What do you guys think?

And then there's the Phione discussion. Let's not get into that, since there WILL be flame wars over Phione.

I'm just a little crazy sometimes.
OK, a lot crazy all the time.

My romhacks and Essentials games are on hold until Essentials is updated.

It annoys me too. In all honesty, I think it's mostly the pokemon who have had their own movies. Or something that has made them special.

I admit, when I first heard about Zorark I thought it was legendary but that's because I didn't know about little Zorua. Easy mistake. But saying they aren't pokemon fans or aren't big enough fans because they didn't know is a bit much but to each his own. :D

Agree
Most people that think that Zoroark and Lucario are legendary do so because they have their own movies and held on their own against legendary pokemon
Same may lead people to think Unknown being legendary because of the movie and their ability

Found an interesting factoid.

Arcanine's description is "The Legendary Pokemon" While in fact it isn't a legendary at all!

And Arcanine isn't even a pseudo-legendary! Zoroark and Lucario aren't pseudo-legendary too. But Dragonite, Tyranitar, Salamence, Metagross, Garchomp and Hydreigon are.

Lucario and Zoroark are not Pseudo-legendaries. Are they 3rd evolutions? No. Do they have Base-Stat Totals of 600? No. Thus, they are not Pseudo-Legendaries.

If they were legendaries, then I would hate them even more than I already do, if that's even possible.

Arcanine is the "Legendary Pokemon" because of it's appearance, based off a mythical Koma-Inu.

Well, apparently, people have already named this group of pokémon semi-pseudo-legendaries, but really, there comes a point where it just gets ridiculous when you have to add 2 prefixes just to get to one group of pokémon whom are commonly believed to be legendary because of their features in movies, base stats not reaching the full 600 or above, or just plainly the apparent lore involving them that impacts the history of the pokémon world to at least some degree. It seems to me that trying to come up with an official definition for pokémon who are not officially legendary but still are considered legendary goes just a little bit too far and is too much influenced by subjectivity in the first place to really be bothered with. To be frank though, I really don't understand what the big deal is about people who consider pokémon legendary or even just pseudo-legendary when they officially aren't because the standards they use for it are different. Big woop-tee-doo, really.

What makes a pseudo legendary ? has 3 evolutions? its stats? being close to the legendary in pokedex number?
Why it has to be so strict ? in the end pseudo legendary are just a concept to classify certain pokemons , and those are open to personal interpretation and can be changed
Even the Legendary "rules" were shaken wen Manaphy and Phione showed up

Not everything has to be black and white

It doesn't help that some pokemon have overpowered god-like abilities in the Anime/Movies. Moves hit harder then they should, abilities are blown up and abused.....it's almost (or is it?) at the point where the anime and the games are two completely different series, and what do most "Normal" people see more/first? Then they're left thinking these pokemon are legendary because they have flashy epic abilities....
