    Zap that Dos! Nothing like an electrified bird to shock your system.

      Definitely Zapdos. Articuno is really pretty, but looking at Moltres reminds me of fried chicken.

        Oh wow, Moltres really does look like cooked chicken or something! I wonder if it would taste good....

          Definitely Articuno, it's so gracious! Might be because I'm a girl though.. Zapdos is a close second and I really agree on Moltres looking like a fried/cooked chicken, the poor creature!

          I've never enjoyed the birds as much as Entei/Raikou/Suicune. However Zapdos is probably (just) still my favourite, mainly due to it looking badass on my friend's pokémon card when I was younger. Moltres is a good battler, but I don't like its design much - especially compared with Charizard - although it does look slightly better in Gen IV. Articuno is the least interesting in my opinion, although its design is nicer than that of Moltres. The movepool of all three isn't exactly bad...it just seems a little lacking in-game, and seeing as nobody battles competitively in Gen III, that's all that matters right?

          ...actually, now I've looked at them, I'm definitely throwing a Zapdos into my LeafGreen team next time I play...

            Tie between Moltres and Articuno. I don't like Zapdos much, and Zapdos was so easy to get. Moltres was fun to capture.

            Aesthetically they're all very good designs even though they're each based on a fairly simple concept. Moltres looks a bit better than the other two though so it's my favourite.

            Despite that, I rarely used Moltres as I usually pick Charmander as my starter so I have no use for it. I usually use Articuno on most run throughs. I'll use Zapdos if I haven't bothered to get Raichu/Jolteon.

              Zapdos is my favourite. It is a very close match though. I have always liked its design and is probably the most useful out of the three.

                I guess my favourite would be either Moltres or Articuno, but I always catch all of them.

                In terms of which one is my favorite, Zapdos would be the one. But as per my own PokéCode. I don't use Legendaries... ever. Well, except in contests and musicals etc.

                  I've captured all of them & it was easy as hell I didn't even break a sweat.
                  Anyway I love them all, but will probably go for Articuno cuz he's so chill xD

                    In my first playthrough of FireRed I caught and used Moltres and Zapdos in my team. They were both helpful additions even if having two Fire/Flying types may have been a bit silly. Four flying types in one team is crazy but I couldn't not use a Pidgeot while playing a Kanto game, right?

                    However Articuno is my overall favourite of the three. I just think it's design is really elegant, and ice types have always interested me. I also found the fact that it could learn Sheer Cold to be bittersweet as it would never work for me but always would work for my friends against me!

                    My favorite is Articuno because I remember how helpful it was back when I used to play Blue. All three are good, however.

                      My favourite was Zapdos because I caught it a lot earlier in the game (and catching it was much easier than the other 2).
                      I like Articuno's design the most though. Also it's Sheer Cold helped me win a few matches that would have been otherwise impossible

                        Zapdos - not only is it the most aesthetically pleasing in my opinion (Although I do like the look of Moltres; Articuno is too plain for me), but it is also the most useful in competitive battle, with the widest movepool, best typing, great Speed and Sp. Atk, with effective STAB moves to back it up. Articuno is usually absolutely dreadful in battle, and while Moltres is not so bad, its typing and fairly shallow movepool let it down. Also, Ho-Oh is a very similar Pokemon in this respect, except it is superior to Moltres in most aspects.

                        Moltres I think- my friend traded me one at lvl 87 and I used it in my party for a long time, E4, contests, wandering the region, you name it, Moltres and I did it! >.> So I formed a bond to it after a while. It looks pretty good too and I love how Moltres guides travellers lost in mountains, that's awesome! :D

                          Articuno. It looks amazing, Plus it destroys dragon types. Nuff said.

                            My Fav was (and still is) Articuno. I've always had a liking for the ice type pokemon and one time i got a German Articuno over the GTS in Platinum and i thought it was cool.

                            Well Articuno is my all-time favorite legendary, so I always catch it. :D I don't manage to capture Zapdos or Moltres unless I actually want to.

                                Articuno.
                                I caught Articuno and Moltres. I failed to catch Zapdos. I like Articuno because of it's sleek and elegant look.

                                  Zapdos. That design just overtakes the other two.
