I wouldn't want much more than 10 legendaries, more than that and they become less special.

I'd prefer a limit of 6-7 legendaries this gen since otherwise it just gets ridiculous in my opinion - Sinnoh definitely had too much. ):

Well there probably has to be:
- The two main legendaries
- Third legendary
- 100 in every stat cute legendary
- Legendary trio

That's at least 7. I think Hoenn had a good number tbh.

I think Vaporeon might actually have it right here, though it'd be interesting if there was any more legendaries...
I don't think so...I like it better when we focus on a few legendaries rather than overwhelm people with a ton of them like gen IV did.

While Sinnoh is my favorite region they really did just make me cringe whenever I thought of the legendaries. I hope Gen 6 does it right.

I thought gen IV had too many as well. But I guess the theme of the gen was legends and myths so...

Legends have become less special because of too many being added in later games. I like the base of vaporeon's idea.

Generation V had so many Legendary Pokémon that I thought it was way too many. I think around 6-8 is a reasonable number of Legendary Pokémon in the game for Pokémon X and Y. ;)

Even though I liked Generation 4 and 5's legendaries, they introduced too many.

I do admit around 6-8 would be sufficient cos it's not too many.

    I don't like legendaries all that much. We have X, Y, and possibly Z. Those are most likely.

    But 3 is plenty. I prefer pokemon like Volcarona. When you first see it, you know it is special. You get the Challenge of catching it. But then, You can actually breed more of them.

    You get all the specialness and challenge, plus the fun of breeding more. what is not to like.

    I'd rather have more Snorlax, Sudowoodo, Valcarona then more legendaries.

    We'll probably have an exciting post-game but I don't think that's everything. There's still wifi stuff to do after the main story, or breeding, or stuff like that, I mean with B/W not EVERYONE was disappointed in a lack of a post-game so even if there isn't I'm sure we'll survive through :)

    I agree with Nica. I think there will be plenty of post game to keep us busy as well as stuff like breeding and Battle Tower things.

      There doesn't HAVE to be a third legendary. 3/5 had yes, but each one is a different classification in their triangles. 2 are arguable to belong in said triangles due to status and relation. If Gen 6 is based on Genes and Genetics, then there is a chance there is no third as there are only 2 Chromosomes which are the supposed basis for the games. The Rainbow Helix is a pretty good show of it being based off of genetics rather than dimension.

      Trio, Mirage, and Mascots are usually all we really need. So a minimum of 6 is all that has to appear this region. Anything else is bonus.

      Let's look back a bit. In gen I there weren't many legendaries, but let's not worry about it too much, as Pokémon was still growing. Gen II only had 6 legendaries, but I think that is because the regional Pokédex also contained all of gen I's legendaries as well, making a total of 11. From then on, every gen has had 10 or more legendaries. If gen II had released more, they would have had the same problem as gen IV, with too many. Now I know that most of the legendaries aren't able to be caught in the gen II games, but they're still in the regional dex. So that is why I think anywhere under 10 legendaries is fine for gen VI. A couple of event legendaries is important for promotional purposes.

        Yeah, I hate having so many legendaries in Gen IV. I think there was evening too many in Gen V. Lets look at the statistics shall we? According to Bulbapedia, "Legendary Pokémon are a group of incredibly rare and often very powerful Pokémon." Of the 654 Pokémon species, 47 are considered to be legendary (7.24%). Now if you ask me, 7.25% is very rare or special. That kinda bugs me a bit. 7% is a large figure, and I think it should be closer to 3 or 4%. But that's just me, I'm sure some of you love having heaps of legendaries.

          I suppose it is worth noting that if you have more legendaries, it can mean more side plots post-game.

          I'm not opposed to lots of legendaries. ;( I just want new Pokemon to play with and use, maybe we'll even be lucky enough to get another legendary that's good enough to be NeverUsed.

          (get it??)

          If the legendaries are NU, I hope they're like Regirock and not Regigigas.

          Yes, I pretty much agree with you fully. 8 or 9 gives enough side quests and challenges for everyone, without having too many legendaries.

            He probably means Gen 2 .
            However, first Gen had only 5.

            I think Gen III had the perfect amount. Three mascots, a trio, two event only, and another legendary duo, with one being available and the other becoming an event Pokémon. Perfect if you ask me.

            Just as long as they're useful I don't mind what kind of legendaries are in NU. :3 But yeah, some weaker legendaries would be great to see for the lower tiers where they can be embraced.

              Hm, but it's not a good look if a Pokemon with the title "Legendary" is scrapping at the bottom of the pack. And with the power creep from Gen to Gen, as much as I'd like it I don't see it happening. But if it did, I'd like it to have a significant impact on the tier, and not just become never used by people who play Never Used.
