    Default Pokemon that should lose their legendary status

    So, which legendary Pokemon do you think shouldn't have been legendary and why?

    I'm going to go with:

    -Latias
    -Latios
    -Deoxys
    -Heatran
    -Darkrai
    -Cresselia
    -Phione
    -Manaphy

    Basically, I think that GF should have stuck with their formula for legendaries. One regular legendary trio (birds, beasts, golems, pixies), one more "superpower" legendary than the previous generation (Gen I had Mewtwo, Gen II had Ho-Oh and Lugia, Gen III had Kyogre, Groudon and Rayquaza and Gen IV has Dialga, Palkia, Giratina and Arceus) and one "cutsey", hard to find legend (Mew, Celebi, Jirachi, Shaymin). That's it. Regigigas gets a special pass for expanding the underdeveloped Regi myth but the rest don't.

    Note, I like most of these Pokemon (except Heatran) and I don't wish they weren't created, I just think they should have been regular Pokemon, not legendary ones

    I think there's way too many legendaries right now. I think that they should just have the trio, duo, and one or two that's really rare. Generation 4 really went overboard. I mean they are supposed to be legendary, having so many kinda takes away from that in my opinion.

    As for ones that shouldn't be legendary... I'd say Heatran, Cresselia, Darkrai, and the Regis or the Eons, take your pick.

    I'd say Mewtwo, it's not really legendary if it was created by humans, no more so than Porygon.

    I agree, it's just an alien, there may be a planet with over 60 million Deoxys, in fact, they could be common pidgey on this other planet.

    I'd say the mere fact it's an alien already makes it legendary.

    I myself am just against Heatran, Regigigas, Phione, and the lake trio. The lake trio is just too unoriginal.

    I really don't care if there's a crapload of legendaries. And what's with all the heatran hate? I love that spidery type thing!

    I agree only with the Heatran and Manaphy line removal. The rest I see as legends.

    Well, it was made by humans, but there is still logically only one of them in the Pokemon World. Porygons have been made and modified by humans. Castforms are used for weather by humans. Mewtwo destroyed its lab/the mansion theoretically can't be made again and if so, the new pokemon would not be the same.

    I think I see where you're going. Heatran is the only thing that isn't really associated to a story or myth. Pretty much the only thing that makes it a legend is that it's more powerful than other pokemon. True, Mewtwo and Deoxys don't really have a myth, either, but they're also as powerful as the legends. To me, if anything doesn't deserve to be a legend, it's Phione. It's only one by association to Manaphy. (Well, and it's at the end of the dex, but I digress) It has no special powers, no story, and even in the anime, they let Buneary of all things defeat it. It's the weakest thing still called a legend. In comparison to this, Heatran seems normal amongst the pile of legends.

    Plus there were three of them. I'm pretty sure Deoxys is the only other Legendary to have multiples show up at the same time, right?

    I totally agree. I also think that phione, manaphy, darkrai and cresselia shouldn't be legendary. I'm in two minds about regirock, regice and registeel i think they're more rare than legendary to be honest.
