    Given Mesprit is the only one there who is specifically linked to emotion, its kind of weird to call them the emotion trio, especially when fan convention has just been Lake trio.

    1. Beast Trio

    2. Tie between Muskideers and Kami trio

    Muskideers and Kami have interesting stories, they may overtake Beast Trio if they get expanded in future games.

    They all have something mysterious about them that I like. The others have in-game mythology, and I don't like that. Takes away the mystery.
    So what exactly differentiates them from the rest of the Pokemon? Also Musketeers have a background story, the Regi's have a bit of a story when you translate the braille, and the birds seem to act more like urban legends, but all have stories associated with them.

    Being told that the Beast Trio was created by Ho-Oh isn't any more of a story of Moltres heralding spring time, Zapdos being used as an explanation to thunderstorms, and Articuno bringing winter. I also don't see how mythology takes away the mystery of anything when their stories often raise more questions.

    Gonna have to go with the Beast Trio, with the Bird's being a close second. The Beasts win because I prefer the Fire/Water/Electric typing to the Fire/Ice/Electric one of the Birds. I also like the Beasts storyline. The Birds probably beat every other trio in terms of their pure simplicity however. No huge legend or myth is built up around them. They're just extremely powerful pokemon that aren't seen too often.

    The birds have zero story. Being used to explain thunderstorms is not backstory. Also I don't think anyone mentions them but one or two npc's who claim to have seen a big bird.

    The Regi's might have a little story, but unlike the beasts they have no in-game mythology. The beasts are well-known in johto, while the regi's have no more than a little kid in pacifidlog who says that his grandfather used to tell them "six dots open three doors" or something like that. Unless you happen to stumble upon the braille cave by chance, you won't know about the regi's, which makes them so cool imo.

    As for the musketeers, it's about the same as the regi's qua that they're "hidden" (I believe no npc's mention them at least, except for after you catch cobalion). Plus I don'tmthink they have much mythology either.

    If there is info on something, it becomes less mysterious. Each bit of information limits possibilities.

    I prefer the birds. First of all, I like their design. The Bird trio is the only trio that really gets it right, both other trios have some I don't like when it comes to their visual design (Entei, Regice, Mesprit, Cobalion and generally the entire Kami trio, can't stand those).

    However, and more importantly, it's because they haven't got any story, and they certainly don't need it. They are by all means depicted as powerful, but not as something completely out of this world. As I've been generally disappointed with pokémon-plots, it's good to see that the bird haven't been diminished by a weak plot. They should be a rather unique element you could stumble upon to use. I'm really not very interested in using a pokémon that is the deity of time, but a legendary pokémon that simply is known for being powerful and mysterious, I can live with that. I like Uxie, but I never use it, as having the being of knowledge on my team just feels ... wrong, but Zapdos is a staple of my Firered teams. Simplicity wins in that regard.

    If pokémon should be integrated into the plot, or actually have a background, it should at least be thorough. It's certainly not true that legendary pokémon has to influence the plot, quite frankly that narrows the possible plots significantly.

    I guess its just that you and I think differently. Look at it this way: scientists often say the more they learn about the universe, the more they realize how little of it they understand. This really applies to any field of science. Yeah, Pokemon isn't a science, but I personally don't see being given answers as limiting possibilities.

    The Muskedeers have a mythology though. Their story is much more interconnected than the birds, and highlight the struggle between people and Pokemon that's currently being played out int he games.

    Though I do see the appeal in the birds, its the same appeal I see in Heatran. Legendary Pokemon that may not be popularized as deities in the fandom, but nonetheless may be seen as such by certain groups of NPC's, or perhaps even seen as the Pokemon world's equivalents of the loch ness monster and Sasquatch, which is quite amazing given that we do have a loch ness monster and sasquatch Pokemon. They are able to maintain the mystery without being treated as gods.

    I chose the beast trio because they seemed to be the most fun. In both the show in the video games, they came off as these fun energetic Pokemon.

    Bird Trio > Golem Trio > Beast Trio = Emotion Trio > Muskedeer Trio >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Kami Trio.
    The lack of any story of Bird and Golem trios makes them more mysterious. I don't like the god features in legendaries.

    I don't know why, but I love the Regi trio. They're definitely my favorites.

    I went with the Beast trio, but the Golem trio is a close second.

    I voted the lake trio or the emotion trio as this poll refers to them. Mostly because I like the way they were incorporated into D/P/Pt's story. Second would be either the musketeer trio or the beats. Both are awesome.

    Out of these options, I'd say Beast Trio. However, had all the trios been represented I would've voted for Weather trio because of Rayquaza

    I always liked the Golems. I used them a ton back in R/S.
    Registeel was my personal favorite and the one I used the most. I still have it to this day on my White Version along with the other Regi's.

    The birds are definitely my favorite, with the beast trio close behind, and the musketeer trio after them.
