Technically, that means Mew isn't legendary either.

Considering its an event Pokčmon yeah...
But also Shaymin alone doesn't seem like a legendary...it could be any green hedgehog-pokčmon really. (And it should be, since then it'd be easier for me to get one XD...I hate event pokčmon)
Makes me wonder whose idea it was to make it a legendary Pokčmon... what makes a green hedgehog with a flower on its head more special than any other Pokčmon?
So it makes flowers grow... Slowpoke's yawn was rumored to cause rain, Diglett dug a tunnel that fits for an Onix, Clefairies come from the moon and so on...

Ooooooo he got you there. Shaymin is a legend because they are so rare. Thats pretty much the same with all legends.

Just because its rare doesn't make it a legendary. Mew is stuff of legends, and the origin of all pokčmon (at least it WAS before Arceus came along) and capable of using every move there is.
Shaymin is a hedgehog that plants flowers, and in the anime it seemed quite well-known and easy to find (that random guy on the train had seen them before.) A legendary pokčmon shouldn't be something any tourist can find if they go looking in a gracidea-field. It seemed more like just a rare pokčmon...who for some reason talked through telepathy (somehow I think any non-psychic pokčmon communicating with that is a bit odd)

If there only being one of a pokemon makes not legendary, then that would eliminate many proven-to-be-legendary pokemon, like Deoxys, Lugia, and Dragonite.

I think some are legendary just for how rare it is or how old it is confused.gif




EDIT: or for its abilities

By in game status it obviously IS a legendary, but otherwise it doesn't really seem like one...
Plenty of Pokčmon have signature moves.

They made Shaymin a legendary, really because they can. Seriously, they probably said "We need a new legendary pokemon. Each region has a cute one, so lets make Shaymin one." That's pretty much all there is to it. I would like Shaymin even if it wasn't legendary though x3.

Well Shaymin is a pokemon god, much like all the legendarys of this generation. It's god of all plants and what not. Making them grow, kind of like Demeter of Greek mythology.

...I honestly do not understand why you would not count Shaymin as a legendary. Just because there are multiples? Doesn't really make much sense, considering even GF calls them legendaries.

I'm going to go back to greek myth for this example.
There are more than one of the muses. They are lesser gods, but still gods.
There are many examples of multiple gods in mythologies around the world.

When I watched 'Giratina and the Sky Warrior' I've nearly forgotten the fact that Shaymin is a legenday pokemon; especially at the end. They could even 'out-common' pokemon like Magikarp or Bidoof, along with Phione.

But I don't get it, though. There was Manaphy, which was like Sinnoh's 'cute legendary', so why would they need to make Shaymin? (And Phione- that thing just seems pretty damn pointless.)

But don't get me wrong, I love shaymin, legenday or not. ^_^.gif
