Who is your favourite legendary pokemon in the 3rd Gen and why? Mine is Zapdos because he was the first legendary i ever caught and he looks cool.

    Rayquaza. Do I even need to say why? HE IS AWESOME! The shiny palette then? OMFG, the best I've seen. He started the Dragon-type legendary Pokémon series which hasn't ended since then. He has the main role in the games, stopping Kyogre and Groudon, and well, he's just my favorite legendary (except for Lugia, whom I'm not counting because I'm only considering non-event legendaries).

      Up to third gen? I'm gonna go with Raikou or Articuno. I think Raikou has a really cool design to him, and Articuno has just...a mystical beautiful look goin' for him.

        Definitley Jirachi! Because it has the best legend potential, imo. I feel like you can do a lot with its backstory.

            I think I'm going with both Latios and Latias or Rayquaza.
            Well I'm going with Rayquaza anyway. It's the first legendary I caught in that generation.

            I guess this is for only 3rd generation legendaries.

            If so, I probably go with Rayquaza. It's a very powerful dragon Pokemon with one of the best shiny forms in the entire series. Plus, he makes the elite 4 a breeze in Emerald.

                  Jirachi, I like the fact it can grant wishes. Also like the look too

                  There are quite some I like. Rayquaza is really cool and in emerald it destroys the E4. Also cool are Jirachi and Regice (even if I've never used him). Unfortunately getting Jirachi is impossible for me...

                    It is between Jirachi,Groudon and Deoxys.

                    I think I will go for Jirachi as it has an unique typing Steel/Psychic and today it is the only legend with that typing.

                    My fave Hoenn Legendaries would have to be Jirachi and the Lati's.

                    I love their designs and I do tend to love Psychic-type Legendaries a lot.

                    Even though I'm assuming that our favorite legendary just has to be available in the 3rd gen games and not restricted to Hoenn, I'm still going with Rayquaza as my favorite. It's one of the few legendaries that I actually found myself using, partly because of it's unique design, and the other half because of it's part-Dragon typing. Also, it's hard to argue how awesome it's shiny version looks.

                        Definitely Rayquaza. Dragon/Flying with Air Lock, and learns an HM via level up? How could I not? XD

                          RAYQUAZA, it's a massive dragon being able to stop two titans just by roaring, plus it looks so awesome as a shiny

                            I'd go with Rayquaza.. I used him to single handedly defeat the Elite 4 with a well delivered O.H.K.Os eaxh.. And that's even considering the type-disadvantage that a few pokemon presented like Glailie being able to kill me in one shot with something I can't remember

                              Rayquaza, along with being my favorite Pokémon in general. It just has this appearance that just suggests... well, everything to you. It has a menacing, mystic look, and the colour palette it has adds a lot to its design. It also has a great selection of moves to choose from, and no other legendary can beat it in terms of nearly everything (apart from stats/moves, but that's a different story).

                              So, yes, definitely Rayquaza.
                              oh hey is this a placeholder

                                Groudon is my favorite (he's my favorite legendary anyway) He has a great selection of moves and he's my 2nd favorite color he can beat almost anything including the elite 4 by himself he's just Epic! And also he was my first Legendary and my first Pokemon Game Plus his Shiny form is Also Epic!

                                  I have to choose between Kyogre and Registeel. Registeel had amazing defense and made a good member of my team for a short time. But, Kyogre takes the cake. Why? He can obliterate any other third generation legendary. Teach him ice beam, Rayquaza is down. Teach him any water move, there goes Groudon, Regirock, and Jirachi pretty easily. Teach him Brick Break, everything else goes down. Also, he only has two weaknesses and neither of them go above affecting him x2.

                                  Hm... He might be my favorite legendary of all time now that I think about it. He's just overall amazing.

                                  Articuno, I like his appearance mostly and he was the only legendary Pokemon I used in my team and trained to 100. Extremely useful with his sheer cold.

                                  Oh 3rd gen as not 3rd gen games but Pokemon? I don't like any of them at all, but Rayquaza is mostly useful, so I'll go with him.

                                  Although FRLG are 3rd gen games, I consider those Pokemon gen I Pokemon, so I'm only considering those introduced in gen III. Anyway, my favorite is Regice. I love that trio in general, I love its cry, and I love the way you get it. Well...waiting is a bit of a nag, but at least that was changed in Emerald. It's also got a nice shiny color!
