    Tbh, I have never thought of Phione as a Legendary. I always assumed Phione was like a Pokemon where you can only get it at one place and then afterwards be able to breed it, for example like Spiritomb or Larvesta. xD My opinion is Phione should not be considered Legendary because it can breed and so it isn't rare like a Legendary should be.
    Correction: Phione can't breed. Manaphy can. Phione is like an offspring to Manaphy.

So just gives it less of a reason to be a legendary.
    Genderless shouldn't mean anything, since other genderless Pokemon such as Magnezone & Starmie can breed with a Ditto, which is what Manaphy needs, a Ditto, to breed a Phione.

    Personally, because it can breed from a Manaphy, which is a Legendary Pokemon, it should be special whether or not its breedable. I mean, I don't see any complaints about [email protected] or Heatran, etc being Legendaries because they have genders. What's the difference, really? Yes, Phione's stats may not be any better than the likes of Glalie's and Flygon's, but Manaphy isn't as common as Lugia's or Zekrom's to catch, which mean without the trades, Phione isn't as common either.

    Since Phione is an offspring of Manaphy, should Phione know Heart Swap as well?
