Why Cosmog and Cosmoem?

Posted August 2nd, 2017 at 5:13 PM by Alexander18

Legendary pokemon generally don't have pre-evolutions. Then sinnoh came and gave us Phione that hatches from Manaphy but does not evolve. SM came and it introduced an evolution line for the mascots. However i feel they should not of bothered with Cosmog and Cosmoem. Here is why:

1. Not useable - both have no legit attack move and can not defeat an opponent. This essentially makes them useless.

2. Legendaries are not suppose to have evolution lines - the concept feels wrong. Legendaries are suppose to be complete beings that do not evolve or have pre-evolutions. The exception is Phione since it does not evolve and i believe that is fine.

3. They exist only because of the story - it is clear they were made because the story required them to exist. I don't like this and prefer a story without them and lillie. Solgaleo and Lunala didn't need pre-evolutions.

To me Cosmog and Cosmoem are pokemon that GF shouldn't have made. I don't know why they called legendaries since their move pool proves otherwise. I think GF made a mistake.

    So how fun would the story be without Lillie, Cosmog, or Cosmoem?

    A thousand times more fun. I don't need such a unlikable person like her or useless pokemon like Cosmog and Cosmoem.

    Lillie basically does nothing in the whole game. Cosmog and Cosmoem can't battle until they become Solgaleo/lunala.

    I disagree (: I think it was an awesome fresh spin on version mascots and legendaries, and it was heartbreaking that Solgaleo went with me in the end when he had been Lillie's pokemon all this time. Super cool story.

    The idea would have worked if Cosmog and Cosmoem had a proper move pool and actually travels with our character. I don't care about lillie.
