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.
