Articuno for me. Made a great ice addition, since that was a type I constantly needed.

My favorite will be Mewtwo I really like him and it's my most favorite Psychic Type Pokemon.

Moltres was awesome too since it's a fire type. :3

Mine is Articuno. It helped me make short work of Lance's dragons, plus I'm pretty sure it was the first legendary I encountered. I loved the fact that Blizzard was much more accurate too (90% I believe?).

Mew is my favorite, just because of all the TM possibilities and it's so cute also, I like Articuno as well. I love Ice-types and I really think Articuno was well-designed and also awesome.
Gotta collect 'em all! (seriously, I'm trying.)

Meeew! :3 It's adorable and I've always wanted to own one since I never did catch a Mew in R/B/G/Y. Zapdos is close behind it, though; electric is my favorite type and Zapdos just looks so cool.

I don't think we have many legendaries available on R/G/Y to make an interesting poll... I counted 5 on total: Moltres, Zapdos, Articuno, Mew and Mewtwo.

IMO, the coolest legendary in this generation was... Mewtwo. It is so cool that though being "two" it comes first than the Pokemon it was originated from, Mew. Mew is also cool, but I prefer Mewtwo for any reason.

Sounds really typical but definitely Mewtwo, he's awesome looking but not because he looks like massive bulky tank or anything. If I had to pick a second I'd choose Articuno since it's the only bird in my opinion that doesn't look a bit daft.

I have to say that the biggest problem with the legendary Pokemon is that they are obtained when there is very little to do in the game. Apart for Yellow where Zapdos is a great substitute for Pikachu i have never imagined replacing my Charizard with a Moltrese or a Blastoise with an Articuno its just wrong. I always thought that the legendaries should have come much earlier in the game where they would be of more assistance rather than at the end with Mewtwo being an obvious example.

Gonna have to go with the crowd and say Mewtwo. I've really got a thing for Articuno too, though.

The only legendary Pokemon I like from the first generation is Zapdos and Zapdos is my 3rd favorite legendary of all time (right after Giratina and Darkrai). I love the design of Zapdos, the coloring and the move pool which helped me catch the pain in the necks Articuno and Mewtwo.

My favorite legendary was Mew i caught it through a glitch in the yellow,red,and blue games there's other many legit ways to get it but this is mine. The long range trainer glitch. If you don't know what i'm talking about go to youtube and write let's glitch pokemon yellow and you should find it.

Zapdos here! While I still love Mewtwo and still hate how he was replaced as the strongest Pokemon in the world, I've just not used him nearly as much as I've used Zapdos. Not surprising though, as I've used Zapdos quite a lot. It's pretty darn amazing in battle, as well as having an awesome design (with loads of great fanart!). Catching it has also always been such a painful process, but great Pokemon don't come cheap either, so I guess that suits it well :D
Not removing this from my signature!

totally forgot about mew Articuno is my favorite, for its majestic design and frigid location. I think Ice types were quite rare in the first gen games, and I quite liked exploring a snowy cave. To me, that was a lot more interesting than stumbling around in the dark or being surrounded by brown rocks, haha. I felt quite accomplished catching my Articuno.

So generic, but Mewtwo is mine still. It's too powerful to ignore...

I never used legendary pokemon in my party, because i felt like i was cheating.
But i loved Articuno's look. and when i did need help with dragon types, i would use it.

And to this day, i still love Articuno. It looks amazing.

My favorite was Zapdos. I know this because I was always let down when it got damaged in the Pokémon 2000 movie.

Truthfully, I don't have a longtime favourite. This is because I keep changing my mind and every new month results in a new favourite xD

My current favourite, however, is Moltres. I guess it's because I like it's name...but who knows, maybe next week I'll prefer Mew because who not P:

I think they all have great designs and I don't dislike any of them. If I had to pick a favorite, it's a tie between Articuno and Mew.
you see these trees, man?

My favourite was Articuno. I think the cry made it the favourite for me, and probably because I didn't waste a lot of balls to catch it, unlike the others.

Since I always picked charizard, for the second gym I'd use pikachu then not use an electric until I caught zapdos. Then, I'd use him for the first of the elite 4.
