View Full Version : Your favorite legendary trio!

September 1st, 2012, 11:07 AM
Good things come in threes! So pick one.

Personally, the Legendary Wildcats (beasts, whatever) are my indisputable favorites. I love big cats, and with Suicune bearing much resemblance to a leopard, Entei to a guardian lion, and Raikou to a tiger, these guys will probably remain my top choice as long as Pokemon exists. My favorite of the 3 is Entei.

September 1st, 2012, 11:35 AM
The diamond and pearl trio because they are all the greatest out of teh rest.

September 1st, 2012, 11:49 AM
The original trio. Articuno was a BEAST in pokemon blue. Zapdos was a speedy joker, and moltres was a great special sweeper.

Entei, Rakiou, and Suicune were a close second. Suicune held them back, wasn't very good IMO.

September 1st, 2012, 12:01 PM
Legendary Lions ftw!
(Suicune is my favorite pokemon)

September 1st, 2012, 6:14 PM
I went with Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres.

Only because it's the first legendary trio I've encountered and I think they're neat-o :)

September 1st, 2012, 6:34 PM
Suicune, Entei and Raikou are my favourite trio simply because I've always had a special lace in my heart for the seceond generation of pokemon gaming. Johto is an amazing region and I loved playing through it on the GBC as a child, and I always found these three to be amazing pokemon appearance wise and power wise (in battle) so it's these three for me.

While Rayquaza is my favorite legendary, I prefer the legendary birds over Groudon and Rayquaza, so I picked them. Aside from the previously mentioned Rayquaza, the three birds are the only Pokemon that I can think of using in my party for any length of time (I used Zapdos and Moltres on and off during my first Fire Red playthrough, and my Level 100 Articuno is currently on my HeartGold team).

They have the best encounter music, I also like them because GSC were my first Pokèmon games. I also liked the shiny versions of them that were in the Zoroark movie.

I'm a bit stuck between choosing the Tao Trio and the Legendary Beasts, because I like both of them a lot.
However, the legendary beasts win this one simply because they all look incredibly awesome. The Tao Trio all have great designs, but I think that the Beasts have the advantage of being the first legendary Pokemon to look truly legendary.

September 3rd, 2012, 2:03 AM
Cobalion Terrakion and Virizion.....oh.

You included Groudon/Kyogre & Rayquaza and the BW dragons, but excluded the musketeers? D:

Perhaps it should be "which legendary group is your favourite" instead of trio.

September 3rd, 2012, 4:47 AM
I'm going with the Weather Trio. I found their concept the most interesting being affiliated with the weather while Rayquaza had Air Lock and neutralized it. The Legendary Beasts do peak my interests with their designs, but I somehow prefer the Weather Trio's more, albeit only slightly. In addition, I never liked finding those running Pokemon. Suicune is a Pokemon I use frequently for battling, though.

September 3rd, 2012, 5:10 AM
Wheather Trio, not only does it have my favorite legendary but they're pretty interesting & powerful.

September 3rd, 2012, 7:38 AM
Reshiram/Zekrom/Kyurem aka the Tao Trio.

Why? Cos I love their type combinations and I'm a 5th Gen Fangirl! They also look so epicly cool.

September 3rd, 2012, 8:25 AM
It's between the weather trio and the legendary beasts for, but I think I like the weather trio more. Kyogre is one of my favorite legendaries and I really like the concept behind them controlling the weather and the whole story in RSE and how they have a big role in it all. I think RSE's story is pretty amazing.

The legendary beast mainly cause of their designs and Johto has a special part of my childhood and has to be one of the best regions.

September 3rd, 2012, 8:40 AM
I prefer Kyogre/Groudon and Rayquaza, without a reason

September 6th, 2012, 5:27 PM
I like the Tao Trio because it has my favorite legendary Pokemon of all time Reshiram in it.

September 6th, 2012, 5:39 PM
Zapdos, Articuno, Moltres definitely. I also liked how a big part of the Pokemon 2000 movie revolved around them.

September 7th, 2012, 11:48 AM
I picked the Lake Trio because I loved how they wove them into the plot. I guess I like the story surrounding them more than the Pokemon themselves, but whatever.
Articuno and company comes in close second!

September 8th, 2012, 7:32 AM
Entei, Raikou and Suicune make a so beautiful trio. I loved them in the game, being the first fleeing Pokémon, and even if that was pretty annoying to catch them, it was a new interesting feature they ushered in. Then in the animé, I loved the 3rd and 4th movie, and also the Hoso "The legend of Thunder" that feature the three beasts. Finally, the plot involving them in PokéSpé's very interesting.

September 8th, 2012, 7:42 AM
Suicune, Entei, and Raikou.

They're just so cute and strong and eep.

au bon
September 9th, 2012, 4:09 PM
The original Zapdos, Articuno, Moltres (especially after LeafGreen and FireRed) shortly followed by Suicune, Entei, Raikou.

September 9th, 2012, 11:32 PM
I still wanna vote for musketeers. lol.

September 12th, 2012, 5:40 AM
Looks like the Legendary Beasts are enjoying a strong lead, which isn't surprising. They're my favorite as well, they always seemed so balanced. They were legendary but not out of my character's reach as a Pokemon, and none of them seemed stronger than the others. Plus their role in Pokemon Ranger was really fun. :3

September 12th, 2012, 9:40 AM
I like the creation trio (Dialga, Palkia and Giratina) the best out of the current legendary trios. All 3 are very good in battle and I liked how they were portrayed in the Sinnoh myths.

Same. I liked how they all had detailed designs and looked really cool. The beasts were a close second though.

September 12th, 2012, 2:14 PM
For me it's the beasts due to the backstory and design. The golems come in a close second though due to the puzzles required to reach them.

September 12th, 2012, 2:32 PM
The originals, Articuno, Moltres & Zapdos! I love their designs and they will always remain the favourites for me.

September 13th, 2012, 7:21 AM
I will choose Suicune, Entei, Raikou
I love them, that it's :D

September 20th, 2012, 7:08 AM
I love the legendary golems, they're so well designed and the concept is amazing. The fact that they're these ancient guardians is so cool, plus their appearances in the Lucario movie were utterly awesome. They're not the best in battle and they certainly aren't the easiest to catch, but I feel that their background and the whole mystery surrounding them very much makes up for it. Also the puzzles to find them are cool x3

September 20th, 2012, 7:29 AM
I picked Groudon, Kyogre and Rayquaza. They all are my favorite Pokèmon among the option above. Trio Weather are pretty helpfull for my Uber team especially Kyogre.

I am picking the lake trio even though you have to chase one of them.

September 20th, 2012, 8:06 AM

But yeah, definitely the three legendary birds. This may come off being the only trio where I've actually caught all of them in the same game and been able to use and enjoy using in battle. Moltres and I don't get along that awfully well, but Articuno and Zapdos are actually some of my favourite legendaries, and one last thing that also supports my love for these, I'm a bit of a nostalgiafreak :(

September 20th, 2012, 8:24 AM
Hmm I'm going with Raikou, Suicune, and Entei. They have a interesting backstory. The beasts were granted a second chance at life, which is really neat.

September 21st, 2012, 6:20 PM
I like the legendary dog trio the most :3 cause 2nd gen is my favourite gen :3

September 22nd, 2012, 12:11 AM
I like it how no one noticed musketeers aint on the list besides me.

I like the legendary dog trio the most :3

theres a trio of dogs? o.O

September 22nd, 2012, 12:59 AM
theres a trio of dogs? o.O

He means Raikou, Entei, and Suicune. (I think)

Anyways, I wanna vote for the musketeers. I love their designs and how you can get all of them in one place to teach Keldeo a new move.

September 22nd, 2012, 1:27 AM
The original Zapdos, Articuno, Moltres bcuz i love gen 1 shortly followed by Reshiram, Zekrom, Kyurem bcuz I love their type combinations and their design

September 23rd, 2012, 11:46 AM
Honestly a tough one. I think Reshiram etc work well as a trio but my favourite will probably always be the Legendary Birds :)

Personally I wouldn't even count Groudon/Kyogre/Rayquaza and Dialga/Palkia/Giratina as Legendary Trios because although they most definitely are, they're the game mascots and integral parts to the plot of the games, which sort of gives them a category all their own.

So of the remaining ones, definitely Articuno/Zapdos/Moltres. Articuno and Moltres are just beautiful birds. Regal, majestic and gorgeous in every way. Zapdos is less pretty but still pretty badass. I also love the way they did it in the Kanto games where you have to travel to different parts of the region specifically to collect them, it made me feel like I was going on my very own adventure. Getting Articuno was particularly fun because you had to surf to an as-yet-unknown place that you wouldn't even have known was there other than people were talking about Articuno resting there as legend.

It's much better, I think, than the Johto/Sinnoh/Unova running-around-and-finding-Pokemon-that-could-appear-absolutely-anywhere-no-matter-if-you're-prepared BS. I really didn't enjoy hunting either of those trios. It was hard and frustrating and not at all fun.

Id also exclude Reshiram/Zekrom/Kyurem from the list, and perhaps even Thundurus/Tornadus/Landorus.
Because the term "Legendary trio" really foremost relates to the standard first three legends introduced every generation, that are equally special, have exactly 580TBS, and all appear in the middle of the plot before the E4. (The first are mascots too, not to mention Kyurem is quite a different role and concept, and the second are more like [email protected], the usual extra legends, except they happen to have a third, different superior cousin..)
Which the legendary birds set up.
And has since been continued as a tradition with the beasts, golems, pixies and now the musketeers.
Even though people will argue that there is Keldeo, it is not an equal member, but rather a fourth special member to the trio, similar to Regigigas.

So groups like Kyogre/Groudon/Rayquaza, to me are a duo with their guardian, rather than a trio.

September 27th, 2012, 2:23 PM
^ Thank you for the in-depth suggestion but I honestly don't care that much about the technological aspects, a trio's got three, that's how it rolls for me :P

September 27th, 2012, 2:38 PM
I was going to say Dialga/Palkia/Giratina, but Shining Raichu's post makes a lot of sense, so I've thought about it :P

It's hard to decide on a Legendary Trio that I like the best. I didn't use the Musketeers all that much but I'm just.. not altogether crazy about them. And I think the Elves are okay too, but the fact that they're ALL Psychic really irked me.

So that leaves the Golems, Beasts and Birds.
The Golems are cool but single typings (particularly pure-Rock types) don't do it for me. And the beasts generally have just a bit too few decent moves for my liking (rather, moves that I actually like to use). So, I guess my favourite trio are the Birds. I've used at least one of them in pretty much every playthrough of LeafGreen, and being Legendary Pokemon they've always been valuable additions to my team. So I like the birds the best, even though I know they could be beaten by the likes of the Regis with relative ease.

September 27th, 2012, 2:38 PM
The only trio i dont really care for is the Psychic fairies in D/P/PT. I chose the birds, as they were my first trio of legendaries ever.

Are there Oceans in Space?
September 27th, 2012, 6:11 PM
Anything but the Regis. Ugh, I hated them.

But I really like Groudon/Kyogre/Rayquaza, even though I didn't agree with Groudon being Ground-type. The weather aspects were nice touches though.

September 27th, 2012, 6:36 PM
I like the legendary Dogs trio. Suicune is one of my favorite Pokemon out of all the Pokemon and it's design is amazing. Intei is cool too but I don't really care for Raikou's design too much. The legendary bird trio was a close one tho.

September 27th, 2012, 6:51 PM
I choosed the Dialga, Palkia and Giratina because I love them.

September 28th, 2012, 11:32 AM

Well the issues I see is, either the golems and the musketeers are trios, or they are both quartets depending on whether you count a special separate fourth member or not.

October 1st, 2012, 3:02 PM
I always go for the original, which are Zapdos, Moltres and Articuno. The were awesome in the Pokemon Movie: The Power of One and I loved them ever since !
They were also in my Pokemon party the first time I fought the Elite 4 (Though they didn't do much)

October 1st, 2012, 3:27 PM
Johto is definitely my favorite region but Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres are definitely my favorite legendaries.

I agree the Musketeers should be in here, I like them! They're a close second.

October 1st, 2012, 3:29 PM
I chose the tao trio because they represent something. They represent truth and ideals and coexist.And kyurem is like a mix of the two and gives a feeling of equality between zekrom and reshiram.(and i like the designs)
