    as in real life with large beasts some people would run for their lives and others just try to get a closer view or even grab a camera and take a picture. if you saw a strong Legendary Pokémon, would you be one of those people that would run away or would you be like "I gotta get my camera!!!" and come in for a closer view knowing that if you don't bother it it won't bother you???

    I am a photo freak, got to have my picture with EVERYTHING and EVERYWHERE so I'd probably get as close as I can while still a safe distance use my front facing camera and snap...

    This is more of a Pokémon Voting Polls thread, so I'll move it over there.

    I would of course stop and look :D And take a picture and put it on fb, haha. To prove that I really saw it. I would probably be very scared though, if it's a dangerous one. Or one acting dangerous, I mean.

    I like nature, and many animals. So I would stay and take a closer look.

    If I knew I'm not in any danger, then heck yeah I'm taking a closer look.

    If I wasn't sure, I'd probably get out of there. I'm a bit of a coward.

      Human nature seeing a huge beast and you don't know your safety most people would naturally react by running away as fast as they can. However given the fact that if it was a legendary pokemon I would take that opportunity to inch closer for a few awesome snapshots. Maybe get close enough to possibly interact with it providing it doesn't attack or run away.

      strong legendary Pokemon doesn't necessarily means that it's dangerous. Mew is strong and it's a legendary but it's so cute and cuddly xD

      It depends on how dangerous the Pokemon is. If it's a Genesect, I would take a picture and gtfo, but if it's a Celebi, I would go close to it for it to know I'm not it's enemy and cuddle with it :D (Maybe even adopt it)

          of course I would stare at it then take a picture of it,
          I mean who would not ?
          it would a once in a lifetime thing so not taking a photo would be silly.

          I'd take a few seconds to look but would probably be overcome with fright really quickly, haha. :( But if I could somehow conceal myself and know I'd be safe.. then I'd stick around.

          Take a picture, then just stare at it.
          Possibly approach it, depending on what it is.

          I wouldn't run unless it was a Groudon walking in my direction and getting close to crushing me. Probably take a few pics then photoshop them to make it seem like me and the legendary are best buddies! I'm sure at that point the ARNG would be called out to take it down....And since I'm apart of it I can't really go anywhere even if I wanted too...

          If it was a small and friendly-looking legendary like Mew, Celebi or Jirachi, I'll stop and peep at them from behind a bush or something. I'll try not to make any sudden or drastic movements that might scare them off or provoke them to use their attacks against me. I'll also try to stealthily follow them around. If I had a camera with me, I'll definitely snap a few pictures for safekeeping and memories.

          On the other hand, if it was a huge, dangerous-looking legendary that looks like it's about to go on a rampage or let loose a blast of Hyper Beam at anything that moves, I'll take one quick picture and get the heck outta there!! D:

          Definitely stop and take a look haha. Even if I was scared I would be so amazed I wouldn't be able to move! I'd take tons of pics and show everyone I know!

          I'd throw spheres at it until one of them miraculously opened up and trapped him inside. Either that, or I'd call the army because having a legendary Pokémon running around with control over time/space/etc would easily mean the end of the world. Kill it before it gets loose y/y?

              I would tame the wild beast and eventually rule the world.

                If it's Mewtwo, one the most powerful and dangerous pokemon in the world... I'd do an Ash Ketchum and run up and punch it.

                Nah depending on the Pokemon, and if I wanted it, I would walk up to it, try and befriend it, make it mine, and we will go on an adventure and I will become the Pokemon Champion. Heh. :3

                  I don't think I'd have any choice but to try and take a picture if I saw a legendary Pokemon, otherwise no one would believe me if I said I saw one. That being said, I'd try to get as close as I could, but still be far away enough that it doesn't notice me.

                    I would definitely try and get a closer look. But then, I'm one of those people who tries to make zoo-going a regular activity so I can see all the large beasts there too. :3 The last time I went I was rewarded by getting to watch lion cubs playing

                    I think I'd be even more intrigued with a Pokemon though than I am with real life animals.

                      I wouldn't take their photo. I'm not the type of person who enjoys phototaking in general, nor do I own a device that can take worthwhile photos. Nor do I enjoy sharing pictures with people.

                      And why should I do it, when there's probably already a hundred of them already published in pictures? It's not like I'd want to show off to my friends about coming across a legendary.

                      If I had a phone or a camera with me, then yes, I would definitely take a picture. I would try to get closer to it if it's friendly, then I would pet it and try to become friends with it. Haha. If it seems kind of upset, though, then I would just stay where I am for a while to admire its beauty.
