Solgaleo. To me it gives off a very regal yet father figure like vibe to it. Plus I like the fact its signature move has a Mold Breaker effect.

The movie, saw it when it came out then went to catch Latias in game, was an instant favorite. Movie 2000 and Lugia had a similar effect

Solgaleo, because it could open an ultra wormhole and take me to a new world that doesn't suck which has been the only thing I've ever wanted since I was a little kid. Also while it's quite rare, it isn't a one-of-a-kind legend so I can use one on my team without my autism flaring up.

I'm a steelfag, so Solgaleo works perfectly as the big ace of my team.

Groudon and Kyogre, can't choose one they are a perfect set of box legendaries. I also really like Giratina and Lugia.

>>49260636
Are mythicals not just another class of legendary Pokemon?
>>
>>49264342
they're really just a way to classify arbitrary gameplay distribution, but technically in universe I guess they are just another type of legendary. Me personally I see a distinct separation, mythical are pint-sized generational "legends," and actual legendries tend to be large intimidating figures in the universe (nevermind Arceus is considered a mythical and you also have "pint-sized" legendaries like pixie trio)
>>
>>49260636
>>49260960
>>49264342
>>49264387
All mythicals are legendary, not all legendaries are mythical. This isn't a hard concept.
>>
>>49264562
yeah but when people talk about legendries are they not usually referring to the in-game selection anyway?
>>
>>49264634
Mythicals are becoming more and more obtainable in-game so that kinda doesn't matter anymore. Deoxys, Mew, and Jirachi are all obtainable in regular play.

First of all you don't need to pay for anything, piracy exists. Secondly if you are a Pokemon fan and buy games you presumably bought at least one of these anyway.

Not sure why you're including >>>49260960 (me) in this; my post had nothing to do with what you're on about. And on top of that, you have the audacity to be WRONG, too.
>>
>>49264866
>First of all you don't need to pay for anything, piracy exists.

You know that's not the argument. You were able to hack them before on official carts too. That's beside the point. We're talking official ease of access and it is easier to simply own save data for another game, but that's still not just something you can pick up and use in-game without those prerequisites.

>>49264943
>And on top of that, you have the audacity to be WRONG, too.
I'm not wrong. All mythicals are also legendary. Cope and seethe.

Again, if you are a Pokemon fan and own a Switch and dropped $60 on BDSP you absolutely own fucking SWSH or LGPE. If you don't there's something wrong with you.

Reshiram because of it's majestic white fur, angelic design and the fact that it's a fire-breathing dragon and a symbol of truth. Also, golden halo ring shiny is kino.

That's actually wrong though. Not the Satan bit but it's far from just a friendly fucking NEET minding it's own business.
>It was banished for its violence. It silently gazed upon the old world from the Distortion World.
>It was banished for its violence.
It didn't mind its own business and it isn't from the distortion world. It was created alongside Dialga and Palkia as the embodiment of antimatter. It was violent as fuck though so Arceus chucked it into the Distortion World and locked it up.

mythicals are still legendary pokemon, but they are talked about as being myths instead of physically existing like mewtwo, groudon, deoxys, regigigas ect.

something like ho-oh or celebi would be mythical because of their history
"they only show themselves to people who have a rightous heart" along those lines.
