My favorite was Articuno... Mainly because I really loved its cry. XD I had an Articuno that I used frequently in battle, though, it was mostly an overglorified Fly slave... I remember trading it over to Hoenn to enter it in a beauty contest, then getting mad that it didn't instantly win because DUH, Articuno is the most beautiful Pokemon ever, it SHOULD win. XDD

I've always been kind of disappointed with Moltres, even though I do love fire types it just kind of looks like a big chicken on fire. :c

I've always LOVED Articuno, I remember watching the second pokemon movie and just marveled at how beautiful and elegant it was.

Zapdos is really cool, too.

But my favorite overall has to be Articuno. ^__^

Actually it derives from the spanish word for three. ArticUNO, ZapDOS, MolTRES. Uno, dos, Tres.

I'd pick Zapdos because I love electric types back then, also because of it's design.

I kinda feel bad about Moltres not getting so much love, I love moltres in mystery dungeon red rescue team, he was awesome, and that's the only boss fight that I haven't restarted once!

I really like all of the 3, but the one that I like the most would be zapdos. I guess it would be because it is weak to only 2 types and I like it's design.

In the first gen my favorite was Articuno, but after the second gen Zapdos became my favorite of the trio. I don't know, it looks more imponent thant the other two I guess.

Between the three of them i don't think any of them are awesome. They always seemed normal pokemon to me. Anyway i caught Articuno and between the three of them that's my favorite.

In terms of legendaries gen 2 was the top for me so many cool legendaries (I like pokemon until 3rd gen).

I like all three of the legendary birds but Articuno is my favorite because it is so beautiful and has a very calming cry.

I usually don't catch either of them since I usually only do challenges on games - but when I go and want to catch them all I catch them all- My favourite one is Articuno though - maybe because I like it's typing and movepool the most or maybe it's just because of it's design.. I don't really know- Maybe it's also because he is blue (my favourite color).
I don't care about EV's or IV's - I play for fun not competitive.
I don't own consoles - I play on emulators on my computer.

I am a fan of Criminal Minds, Crossing Jordan and some other series. I am also Harry Potter fan and Disney fan (I love Frozen!) - I also like other animes beside Pokemon.

Articuno all the way for me! Zapdos is certainly the coolest of the bunch, but Articuno was simply beautiful. If there's one thing I can appreciate it's a beautifully designed Pokemon. Moltres seemed a tad bit lazy though. I felt like they could have done so much more with it. I'm really glad we got another fire bird in Ho-Oh to make up for it.

Mine would have to be Zapdos, because i'm the kind that likes cool designed Pokémon, and it has some good use in-game, even if it gets totally walled by most Ground-types.

Articuno does take hits extremely well though (except Rock), and STAB Ice Beam is nice so he's #2 of the three for me.

I have a 94 Firebird, and I just requested a MOLTRES personalized license plate, in 8-10 weeks it will be on my car <3

i try to catch all 3 because I want to get as close to a complete pokedex as possible, but the one I use most is Zapdos. Zapdos is not only the coolest one but it has the most uses.
Take a dare, Click a pic.

I did catch all of them in FR/LG, and HG/SS. But my favorite would definitely have to be Articuno. I mean, just that thing.... it looks marvelous! Especially in Emerald and FR/LG, haha. And because it was Ice/Flying meant it could knock out most Dragon-Types ;; and in one hit because it's a legendary :)

Moltres also was my second favorite, quite close. The flames coming of its body look amazing! I really like his Pokédex entry too. It mentions something about like wherever it flies it sets ablaze. Now srsly, how awesome would that be~
