So, we all know some Pokemon a stronger than others, from the mighty Legendary Pokemon to those not so strong Pokemon we encounter on Route 1. But what about those Pokemon that stat-wise that deserve legendary status? These are the Pseudo Legendaries! There are six Pseudo Legendaries: http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/149.gif Dragonitehttp://www.pokemonelite2000.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/248.gif Tyranitar http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/373.gifSalamence http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/376.gifMetagrosshttp://www.pokemonelite2000.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/445.gifGarchomp http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/635.gif and Hydreigon!

So who is your favourite? List your reasons, from typing to stats to movepool even design!

Guess I gotta go for Kairyu (Dragonite) because it's the one I use most of all those as it's part of my team.

Hydreigon is my fave of the bunch cos I love its colors, design, movepool and the origin behind the names of its evo line (Deino, Zweilous and Hydreigon. German for one, two three). It's definitely one of my fave Dragons too.

Tyranitar. Creative typing *not dragon* haha, and idk cool design I guess. I hate the Sand Stream ability though, it's annoying.

October 2nd, 2012, 12:22 PM
Salamence, hands down. It has the stats, it has the movepool, and it can outright sweep teams if played correctly. That, and its design is somewhat simple, yet vicious at the same time. Garchomp comes in close, however.

Wait...Slaking isn't Pseudo-Legendary?! LOL I always thought it was...Is it because of Truant? Bah, well whatever.
Salamence kick ass, hands down and it design is choice, but it comes in second to meh. Dragonite is still my favorite, so I'm going with that. There's nothing like a killah with soft eyes.

Dragonite. Awesome stats all-around, great movepool, and it looks so god damn happy and cute all the time.

I have a soft spot in my heart for all psychic types, so Metagross!

October 16th, 2012, 5:35 PM
Metagross, the whole "Super Computer" thing is really cool. I can imagine it saying any actions like a robot. "Metagross will now attack pokemon pikachu with attack labled as 'earthquake'."

October 16th, 2012, 5:58 PM
Tyranitar. In my Fire Red, after my Charizard, he was my strongest, most dependable Pokemon.

October 17th, 2012, 12:39 PM
Tyranitar just looks so kick-ass! How can I not vote for it? In order from my favorite to my least favorite, it's:

1. Tyranitar
2. Salamence
3. Metagross
4. Garchomp
5. Dragonite
6. Hydreigon

October 17th, 2012, 12:55 PM
I like em' all but it's tied between Metagross & Salamence.

October 17th, 2012, 1:20 PM
Hydreigon. He was supposed to be a tank (You can tell by the purple "treads" on it's body), but he reminds me of King Ghidorah. I LOVE King Ghidorah.

October 17th, 2012, 1:23 PM
Nikki the metagross only because I prefer it's shiny form to the other ones

October 17th, 2012, 1:41 PM
It's quite tight between Dragonite, Salamence and Tyranitar. I never thought much of Salamence and Tyranitar until I trained them in the fourth gen. Although I haven't properly trained a Dragonite before.

So I voted for Salamence in the end.

1. Salamence
2. Tyranitar
3. Dragonite
4. Metagross
5. Hydreigon
6. Garchomp

This is really, really hard, but I think Hydreigon edges it ever-so slightly over Garchomp and Metagross in my estimation. I mean, it can learn pretty much every awesome move under the sun, has a great type (a fully evolved Dragon that ISN'T 4x Ice-weak and isn't Kingdra!) and an absolutely awesome design. It really is just that cool. But I do have a soft spot for all of the others (except Dragonite/Salamence which I actually don't care about at all...)

October 19th, 2012, 4:04 PM
Tyranitar is a long-time favorite. The only Pokemon I've ever took on the entire Elite Four and Champion with and won solo. (FireRed)

October 19th, 2012, 7:05 PM
Metagrossssssss. Loved it in Colosseum, and have one in W2. Plus its got Meteor Mash which is like Metal Claw on steroids.

October 19th, 2012, 8:23 PM
I think you forgot haxorous. I've swept entire teams with him alone. he has great speed mixed with legendery like attack.( plus access to swordance or dragon dance)
But out of those I choose hydriegon. He looks sinister, and give him nasty plot and dark pulse and he becomes an assasin.

Its tied at garchomp and salamence for me both of which were my strongest pokemon when playing RSE and BW!

October 20th, 2012, 5:18 PM
Dragonite. First one I have trained out of all the other pseudo legends. I also had it a quite a high level so it's got a soft place in my heart <3.and I am being super biased right now.

October 22nd, 2012, 3:56 AM
Hydreigon because...well its got three frikin' heads!

October 22nd, 2012, 7:31 AM
Tough choice; I love them all!

But...I think I'll have to go with Dragonite. It's powerful, learns great moves, and hiding underneath that adorable face is a vicious, raging creature of death and destruction. c:

October 22nd, 2012, 3:57 PM
I like all the P-Legendary Pokemon, but Tyranitar would be my least favorite. I had a hard time deciding between Metagross vs Garchomp though. I'm going with Metagross, because of its awesome & amazing typing! & its signature move Meteor Mash is great!

October 22nd, 2012, 3:58 PM
Salamence, because I like his dragon design. Plus, blue and red are some of my favorite colors.

October 24th, 2012, 2:58 AM
Dragonite - it has always been a part of my team, it can learn a lot of awesome attacks, and it looks awesome!

October 24th, 2012, 3:04 AM
Dragonite. Since its in the original 151.
I just love Dragonite's design and its overpowered attack. I practically owned every once I had a Dragonite in my gold game. (those were the days)

I will also put my least favourite psedo-legendary. Its Metagross, I find it gross Just not a fan of many 3rd Gen Pokemon designs and Metagross is one of them. Salamance's is quite okay.

October 24th, 2012, 4:35 AM
Metagross, it's cuuuuuuuute! It's one of those Pokémon that's so tough and so brutish that it can't help but be cute. Plus I love Steel types and it was refreshing to see such a unique Pokémon so I instantly fell in love with it. It's huge stats and great move set (including a signature move if I'm not mistaken) make it a large force to be reckoned with and it's abilities further help to prove that it's a beast of a Pokémon in battle. I'm still not 100% sure of what it's actually supposed to be, but I know it's a Pokémon that I adore using and it's wonderful to use in fan art :3

October 24th, 2012, 5:07 AM
Garchomp! because its garchomp do I need a raisin :P STAB earthquake and outrage! First time I saw it was in the league in pearl version and it scared the **** out of me :( that was waaaaaay before I knew what ev's and stuff were and then garchomp was my first perfectly ev'd pokemon then when I found out what Iv's were and how hard they were to get perfect I almost cried

October 28th, 2012, 6:08 AM
I can't decide between Metagross and Salamence. They're both so awesome.

October 28th, 2012, 6:18 AM
Were is Haxorus?

Voted Salamence it kicks so much ass

October 30th, 2012, 7:28 PM
I'm going to have to say that Metagross is my favorite Pseudo-legendary as its the only one I've raised to Lv100 and it was a very reliable Pokemon on my past teams.

October 31st, 2012, 3:46 AM
I'm gonna go with Salamance, just because of the amount of will power and effort those poor Bagons put into becoming one xD

Dragonite always, for nostalgia reasons. It was pseudo-legendary before any of the others had even been thought of :P

My second favourite would be Metagross though, followed by Tyranitar :D

November 5th, 2012, 6:52 AM
Someone told me wobbufett is a semi legendary. Is that the same thing?

November 5th, 2012, 7:12 AM
Obviously Tyranitar. I like using it and it has some of the best moves to man. It can sweep any Pokemon in its way.

November 5th, 2012, 12:02 PM
I love Garchomp because of its design and power - Hydreigon is a really close second, though.

November 6th, 2012, 1:16 AM
Tyranitar, imo. When I first saw it in the anime, I actually thought it was a legendary. Then Bulbapedia told me it wasn't. Other than that, Tyranitar's strong as well.

November 6th, 2012, 6:02 PM
I am gonna have to go with Garchomp. It has been one of my favorites sense it came out,not 100% sure why. Tyranitar is a close 2nd though. However I do like them all.

November 6th, 2012, 6:08 PM
Salamence forever. Cool design, powerful, fast, regal, versatile, and a poke with the willpower to sprout wings and fly.

November 6th, 2012, 6:12 PM
Hard to believe Tyranitar has the least percentage of votes. He's my favorite pseudo-legendary! He's powerful, he looks like a tank, what more could you want?!

November 9th, 2012, 7:41 AM
Salamence is mine, it's wonderfully versatile, and it has an almost classic dragon design, which I quite like. Tyranitar would be my second choice; I remember being overjoyed when I finally got myself a Larvitar in Silver.

November 9th, 2012, 7:54 AM
Ehh. I guess it would have to be Dragonite followed by Metagross? I never though much about any of the Pseudo-Legendaries to be quite honest.

November 9th, 2012, 8:44 AM
I go with Garchomp. It's design is very cool and beastly! It fits me STAT-WISE, being the fastest out of the others. His movepools might not be as colorful as that of Dragonite but I really don't need more than an Earthquake and Dragon Claw/ Outrage.

I think it's Cynthia's Garchomp that made me go all "WOW!" On that Pokemon. It was extremely difficult to take it down for me. The Anime counterpart also showed no mercy when sweeping members of the Elite 4. I love that Pokemon...always a part of my team :)

November 24th, 2012, 12:44 PM
Metagross. No 4x weakness, a lot of resistance and pretty neat type combo steel/psychic.

Atomic Pirate
November 26th, 2012, 4:45 PM
I'd have to say Tyranitar. It's Godzilla-like appearance and amazing stats are a win overall.
