    Default Legendary Beasts?

    Is each Legendary Beast a dog, a cat or a gerbil?

    Things are rarely this or that they're usually a bit of both.
    Computer: There's an e-mail message! ... The 3 legendary bird POKéMON are ARTICUNO, ZAPDOS, and MOLTRES. Their whereabouts are unknown. We plan to explore the cavern close to CERULEAN.
    From: POKéMON RESEARCH TEAM.
    That couldn't have ended well.

    Their appearances are very cat-like, but the Legendary Beasts aren't really based on felines (or dogs, for that matter). Suicune is based on the qilin, Entei is based on a Shi/Chinese guardian lion and Raikou is based on the Raijū. Seriously, I never understood the confusion of people calling them dogs, they look nothing alike canines.

    Raikou and Entei look very cat-like, but I think most of the confusion comes from Suicune's muzzle. It looks very pointed and narrow, a bit more like a canine's than the comparatively wide muzzles of most cats.
    Furthermore, Suicune and Entei have no tails to speak of, and tails tend to be emphasized in depictions of felines, but not so important in canine depictions (I think this is because we empathize more with dogs, who are friendlier to us. Thus, de-emphasizing the tail makes them "more human").
    Most importantly, neither canines nor felines are known for carrying cloud-like manes of fur on their back. I vote gerbils for all three.
    Sadly, I cannot trade myself.

    Entei looks very dog-like to me and its descriptions even say it barks. Suicune is wolf-like to me, so voted dog there too. Raikou is tiger-like to me way more than anything.

    Raikou definitely looks like a tiger, and Entei definitely looks like a lion. I have no idea what the heck Suicune is; it doesn't look like any animal I've ever seen.

    YouTube projects advertised are in early development and subject to change.

    Raikou looks like a cat that's been horribly injured by lightning, Entei looks like a lion on L'Oreal and Suicune looks like a dog with a 'fro.

    How come people say Entei looks like a lion? I don't see the resemblance. It reminds me more of a large dog, but with a head like that of a bulldog or boxer.

    Raikou looks like a Saber Tooth Tiger due to the sharp, long teeth, and the cat-like body. Entei looks more like a dog than a cat, I just...I really can't explain how. Suicune is more like a cat too the fact it has long white tails.

    I always saw Raikou as a sabre-tooth-tiger, Suicune as some canine (maybe a qilin) and Entei as a lion.
