Mew, hands down, you had to do so much to get him, and the first thing I did after the discovery of the glitch was trying to get Mew as early in the game as you could - as soon as you got fly, I think it was the legendary I had most fun with - Mewtwo is my least favorite because you can only catch it once youve completed the game, kinda sucks :/

Articuno. Not only was it beautiful, but it helped me dominate the Elite Four with Ice Beam.

1st Generation never had many Legendary Pokemon to begin with, but the one that always got my liking was the amazing Mewtwo. He was like the ultimate god back in those days and I do love Psychic-types as well.

I really liked Zapdos.

I thought it looked really cool, being some kind of electric bird god thing.

Mewtwo. Back then the psychic type was overpowered, there was really no stopping Mewtwo. Plus, I've liked Mewtwo since I first saw him anyways.

There are only 5 of them so it's not easy to decide. Legendary birds aren't my thing and I don't really like them. And if I had to decide between mew and mewtwo, I'd definetly choose second one. Its stats are much better.

Articuno for me. I'd always make sure that this was the one legendary I use on my team as it was just so useful especially against Lance.

Zapdos, with it's great 125 Special and 100 Speed and good Electric/Flying stat. Zapdos's main flaw is that it's ugly as hell. I don't like the other four, though I love Moltres's design. Articuno is bland and becomes useless in later generations, while Mewtwo is: 1) overrated; 2) overpowered; 3) not very good-looking; 4) Uber. Mew is too hard to obtain and has a really bad Green sprite.

My favorite gen 1 legendary is Mewtwo. It's an amazing Pokémon in gen 1, and the other legends don't really compare in that regard. Plus, I've never been that fond of flying Pokémon (like Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres) anyway--while a few are nice, there are far too many of them in my opinion, and they have too many common weaknesses.

Of course it has to be Articuno. Great Pokemon. Wrecked Lance, I remember the first time i looked through the binoculars before fuchsia city..? Not sure of the correct spelling.
& seen "" in pokemon yellow i instantly fell in love. I remember thinking.. "now who the hell is that Pokemon?!"
To this day, Articuno is still one of my favourite legendaries.


( I liked everyones posts agreeing on the majestic ice bird also )

I don't know how you can say no to Mewtwo. Just so overpowered and it didn't look stupid, like most of the birds. The birds also had terrible movepools when you caught them, so that took the fun out of them for me.

Would Arcanine count? After all, its original Pokédex entry stated that it was a legendary Pokémon. Haha. ^^" If not, then my favorite first generation legendary is Zapdos, because it's a great Pokémon to battle with. I also like Articuno, because its design is very beautiful.
keeping it captured.

If we're only talking games, it's probably Mewtwo or Zapdos or Suicune. Even though I like the designs of Moltres and Articuno (and all the Johto legendaries for that matter) better, Zapdos is the only legendary bird I remember really using in a game. And Mewtwo was so cool and strong that I just had to use it after E4 :p Not that there was much to do then, of course. But still. Suicune is the only legendary beast I remember using at some point. And it was good enough as a water type, even though I think I switched it out after a while again haha. But that's because I've always preferred using non-legendaries.

Its a tie between Mewtwo and Articno. They both are cool. But I love Articono... In the old games because its high special that at the time was not split. But I love Mewtwo now and his mega evo makes me fan-boy him more.
