Articuno, always! When I'm playing RBY I always catch Articuno after I obtain the Master Ball.

Mew because it's so unique and I honestly think it's the cutest thing ever. I know it can't normally be found in R/B/Y but I think it still counts since there's data for it. My second favourite would be Articuno cuz it looks so graceful and elegant and Zapdos would be my third favourite. I have no opinion on Moltres or Mewtwo tho.

I always loved Articuno's design and move pool. Moltres, on the other hand, I always thought looked terrible. Never really had an opinion on Zapdos, too.

It was Zapdos for me, and it was the first legendary I caught in a Pok'emon game (Blue). Remained as the main "shocker" of my team until I'd stopped playing Blue.

Zapdos is interesting because he was a bird that could electrocute

Oo, this looks like fun!
  1. Moltres
  2. Articuno
  3. Mew
  4. Zapdos
  5. Mewtwo
Moltres is the coolest looking by far, Articuno is a beautiful beast of a bird which looks so wise and reliable, Mew is an absolute cutie but not as cool as the first two, Zapdos is pretty cool but a boring concept/typing, and I don't like Mewtwo so he's bottom by far! I'm just realising how much I liked the scarcity of legends in Gen I haha, it makes them seem much more special.

I guess that I'll rank mine then!

1. Articuno
2. Mew
3. Zapdos
4. Mewtwo
5. Moltres

I really love Articuno as I have stated many times before. I just love its majestic appearance and wonderful typing. I always catch one if available because I love it so much ever since I originally used it on my Blue version. Mew is second for me because of how cute it is! I also really adore how it can learn every TM available. I remember using the Mew glitch to catch this Pokemon and despite how annoying that was, it was totally worth it. Zapdos comes in third for me because it is a pretty good Pokemon, but for some reason it just doesn't appeal to me as much as some of the others. It has a cool design and all, but just something seems a bit off to me. I ranked Mewtwo 4th and I usually would rank him higher, but I have lost my love for him over the years. Sure back in the days of RBY he was the most awesome thing ever, but now there are so many great legendaries that he now seems a bit redundant. Last is Moltres. I don't hate this Pokemon by any means, but it is definitely the least appealing of the legendaries in this generation. It doesn't have as great of a design to me and it's movepool seemed a bit poorer than the others. Overall though this was a good generation of legendary Pokemon.

The most powerful Pokemon, koff~

Mewtwo. His sprite in Blue and Red was just intimidating (My favorite Mewtwo sprite comes from Heart Gold and Soul Silver). He was also one of the few Pokemon that helped eat my way through the Elite four multiple times. Psychic, swift, recover. Some really nasty moves. A close second would be Zapdos, koffi~

My top three would definitely be Articuno, Mewtwo, and Mew in that order.

I fell in love with Articuno because I thought it was gorgeous, and it was fun to Ice Beam the dragons. With Mewtwo, I definitely always found the lore interesting. I can remember reading the diary entries in the Pokémon Mansion, and then seeing Mewtwo's creation at the beginning of the first movie and just loving it. It's tough to pick between the two, but I have to go with Mew as my absolute favorite. The little guy was quite the enigma back in the day, and still is, I suppose. It was nearly impossible to get before the Mew Glitch, and wasn't even that widely known about for a while. Plus Mew is just so darn cute!

Mewtwo, all the way. He's so absurdly strong.

Zapdos, mostly because he looks cool, but also because Pidgeot starts becoming less useful toward the endgame as anything other than a taxi.

Raikou and Ho-oh, probably. Ho-oh is a phoenix and those are cool, of course :p Or maybe Moltres is the phoenix but Ho-oh is based on something similar. Some Japanese legend, I guess?

Raikou is just plain cool. Looks a bit like a digimon, maybe. But what pokémon doesn't look like a digimon, these days? It's got the least attention out of the three Johto beasts and maybe I'm pitying it a bit too, haha.
