    Default Manaphy or Shaymin?

    When you think of the generation 4 mew ripoff (I mean that in the nicest way posible) which do you think of more, or do you think of them equally?

    I realize it is completely opinion based, but I would like to know what the general concensus is.

    For the bulk of this generation it was easy for me to think of Manaphy as the Sinnoh mew, and Shaymin as the national mew, because Manaphy was in the Sinnoh dex and Shaymin wasn't.

    But with generation 5 on its way and Victini announced I find myself seeing shaymin less and like like a generational mew, and more like a random event pokemon. I try to think of it as a mew but I think of its sky form more then its land form so its hard for me to do that.

    -Shaymin is not part of the regional dex
    -Sky shaymin is very much not like mew
    -Shaymin is the second grass mew ripoff, and that doesn't sit as well with me as a water one does.
    Tentative pokemon Black team:

    1.Oshawott; 2. Blitzel.; 3. Zorua; 4. Victini; 5. Deino; 6. Reshiram

    One would say Shaymin wins in a battle between the two because of the crushing power of STAB super-effective Seed Flare. But what if it misses? Manaphy is usually trained for Speed while Shaymin is often trained to take hits. Manaphy could set up Tail Glow, and take advantage of Seed Flare's failure to launch a strong super-effective Ice Beam.

    Of course, that happens, like, 15% of the time. Manaphy can't take Seed Flare due to its sheer power, and in most cases, Tail Glow-less Ice Beam won't KO Shaymin.

    I prefer Manaphy nonetheless.

    Manaphy can breed and its obtained by a unique method so i think shaymin's the 4th gen mew.

    There was no option for "neither", so I voted "both".
    The word "quadragonal" is the only word with "dragon" in it where "dragon" is not a root word. That makes it awesome.

    Shaymin.

    It's slightly cuter, has a better design than Manaphy, IMO, and it overpowers it.

    Plus Shaymin is one of my favorite legendaries. So it's bias from my side. :P

    I like both because:
    -Shaymin has 2 formes (and I like the Sky forme)
    -Manaphy is so freakin' adorable.

    I personally see the Lake Trio as more of the Fourth Generation Mew(s).

    Mainly because of their typing.

    Then you see Cresselia as more of a Fourth Generation Mew as well.

    Mainly because of it's typing

    No need to get smart with me.

    Every pixie/chibi-like Legendary Pokemon in each Generation after the first has been considered the "Mew" of their respective Generation. All of them have happened to be at least part Psychic type, have the natural ability to fly or levitate, and are genderless.

    That is why I see the Lake Trio as the "Mew(s)" of the 4th Generation more than Manaphy or Shaymin. Simple as that.
