While the pokedex thread is discussing past Pokemon you want to appear, this is more of a question as to whether the games themselves need past legendaries appearing, and whether you think there will be any both national and regional. Given that legendaries are on everyone's minds - we've received so many past legendaries from the third generation just over a year ago in B2/W2 and the 3DS can still trade with DPPt, and everything from generation 3 upwards that isn't included in B2/W2 can be migrated through a DS, do you think we'll see past legendary Pokemon at all? Do you think with the region probably being further away this will be less likely? Do you think we've simply seen too many in recent games, and having access to them just won't occur given that it would be overkill? Discuss! This includes both through specific events, and actual areas in-game, by the way.

    I think there could potentially be past legendaries, like roaming legendaries such as the trio lake guardians (mesprit, uxie, and azelf) or the three legendary birds of kanto (moltres, zapdos, articuno). But, then there's the question of, will the past legendaries be involved with the main plot, or will they be only post-game material?

    Someone mentioned on how Mewtwo could possibly be in the games, and I said, 'hey, why not!' With this lil tidbit:

I mean, aside from the anime, I think that maybe they can show more of Mewtwo's own personal feelings and own willpower. Well, I guess the question of the day might be, would Mewtwo influence the Gen 6's legendary pokemon? And will Mew make a brief scene as well? There's kiiind of not that much we know about Mew as well; he's suggested to be the 'ancestor' of all pokemon and supposedly has the genes of all pokemon because it can learn every move.

    There can be cool stuff they can do with that~!
    Buuut I think if we do get past legendaries, I'd bet that they will most likely be post game available pokemon. Even though the region is isolated, I'd still bet we get to see some past legendaries; it has happened before. But, should we have access to them all? Well, I'd say there's a limit there. I guess some main-stream past legendaries such as Dialga, Palkia, Groudon, and Kyogre could be only events.

      Unless the plot of a game specifically ties in with past legendaries, and assuming that transfer from past generations will be possible, I don't think they should be there. Just sticking the legendaries in somewhere so that they're catchable just cheapens them, IMO. They are, after all, supposed to be legendary pokemon - unique, highly prized, special. Not just some run of the mill things that you trip over in every region you go to.

      Kyogre and Groudon(and I think Rayquaza? Not sure) have appeared in HG/SS, so I don't see exactly why past legendaries shouldn't make an appearance here, and I certainly wouldn't mind if they did! :3

      ...Even if HG/SS were just re-makes. XD

        I would like some past legendaries to appear, but I think it'd be best if they were post national dex.

          I would like to see the muskeeters reappear, maybe change Keldeo's Resolution stats this time. Mew, Mewtwo, Deoxys, and Genesect maybe too. Also Kyurem and the rest of the Tao trio if they plan to finish the fusion and show the original dragon here (where if genetics are perfected could create a three way DNA splicer).

          This thread is about whether you think they should appear though, and why, and not what you want to appear, given your wants are for the PokeDex thread! :3

          As for me, honestly I'm sick of certain past legendaries and I'd be glad if they were gone completely. ;( So ya, not necessary for me given that people get sick of them easily, such as I.

            Well they got rid of Kanto's and Johto's as they didn't appear in B2W2...so Hoenn's will proably be next... (until remakes).

            I however would like to see some appear, I enjoy catching legends. And who knows perhaps GF saved Kanto and Johto's for these games...crosses fingers.

              Idk what I'm going to do without them .
              But yeah I think Mewtwo would make an appearance in the game.
              I want him in the storyline though,as well as Mew.

              I'm thinking that while it would be nice to have past Legendary Pokémon... that could actually be a possibility. And I think it would be great to have past Legendary Pokémon.

              Hm... for past legendary Pokémon I'd like to see in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y... would be Groudon, Kyogre and Rayquaza, which are the legendaries from Generation III, we haven't seen them since HeartGold and SoulSilver. xD

                  Personally, I'd like a chance to catch Celebi, Mew, and Jirachi in the wild. That'd be really neat... and of course, if there are any other legendaries that we cannot get to the sixth generation, I'd like a way to get them as well. But mainly, I'd like those three. :3 Come on, a pretty Mew in a non-standard ball? Yespls.

                    Unless I'm mistaken, every new set of games only has Legendary Pokemon from the current Generation. (I don't recall any Gen 1-4 Legends in Black and White) So, no. X and Y will more than likely only have Legendary Pokemon from Gen 6. The new Pokemon should be getting the spotlight now, not old ones.

                      True, not even Generation 2 did that, lacking Mewtwo, and the bird trio. So likely we won't see any foreign legends until the third version/sequel(s) and remakes.

                      As far as I'm concerned we always get some past legendaries appearing in-game post storyline so I can only assume it will happen once again. As for legendaries I would like to see return, it would be nice to see the three Musketeers and The Lake Trio again.

                        I would like to see past generation Legendaries be catchable, but they'll probably hold it off until the third version/sequel/remake like they did in the past.

                        As for what Pokemon I'd like to see, definitely include Latios and Latias again. Maybe the Musketeer Trio as well?

                          Hmm not particularly, I've found legendaries have lost their spark when so many appear and since legendaries like the Kanto Bird trio appear in almost every game, its tiring seeing them returning game after game. However, I would love to see Latias and Latios return or some sort of Pokemon you could only get through event before e.g. Celebi.

                            Considering this region is based on France, it'd make most sense for the Muskedeer trio to make a return at least for obvious reasons, others though, I doubt they really need to reappear until the "possible" 3rd game or sequels.

                              Don't think we really need them appearing, I believe each of the new legendaries have their own stories to tell

                                I'd like ones to return as long as it's not ones who've returned often like Latios and Latias.

                                  Maybe it would be nice to see old event legendaries, like jirachi, deoxys and darkrai, to be available in the game withouth the need of an event,it would be nice to see, i for example, live in an area where there never ever has been done a pokemon event and the only place in my country (the netherlands) who used to do them stopped doing them.

                                  I definitely think they should appear, the idea of legendaries being static to a couple of areas just isn't appealing to me, and I'd love to have Raikou or some such in the game.

                                  I think some of them should and will appear. Not only because they are hard to get without previous game, but also because it gives you more little side quests to do after the E4 without filling this new Pokédex with heaps of legendaries.

                                    My biggest problem with past legendaries appearing in new regions is the fact that we hardly get any reasoning behind the shift in location, and it just feels like they're dropped in for the sake of giving the player something extra to do.

                                    Prime examples:

                                    -Groudon, Kyogre, and Rayquaza appearing in Johto. Why? Sure, they appear in a tower that is somehow connected to Hoenn, but aren't they all unique deities native to Hoenn itself?

                                    -Azelf, Mesprit and Uxie in Unova. Okay, there's a cave similar to the one in Sinnoh, but then they proceed to simply appear in three random spots (Mesprit in the middle of Nacrene, for Arceus' sake).

                                    I mean, it wouldn't necessarily bother me as long as we were given some reasoning for them appearing where they do.

But, then there's the question of, will the past legendaries be involved with the main plot, or will they be only post-game material?

                                    Someone mentioned on how Mewtwo could possibly be in the games, and I said, 'hey, why not!'.
                                    If they go into depth about mewtwo and mew I would be sooooooo happy! The anime short about how mewtwo was created was just the coolest thing ever, and if mewtwo comes into play on this whole genetics theme, then I would be happy!
