Okay first i must know; where did the legendary beasts=gerbil thing happen? Next i debate suicune as a wolf because lets look at wolfs for a second. Granted on the legs (though lots of cats have thin legs such as leopards, cheetahs (i do not believe suicune is a cheetah due to base speed), and panthers (which i beleive suicune is). First there are two pieces of evidence which point to suicune not being a wolf. The first is its speed. Wolves are fast, suicune, not so much. Second all the non-uber legendaries come in trios: three birds, three beasts, three golems (that's what i think the regis are), and three pixies. 2 cats and a dog? Breacks the mold dont it?

They're felines. I hardly see any dog resemblances in them, except Suicune.

They're obviously gerbils. shift.gif

Really, they have both feline and canine characteristics. I've always called them the Legendary Gerbils Dogs, though.

Suicune is definately a dog, raikou half and half, entei more a big cat. Id still regard them all as dogs though.

The Favs



Sorry for posting on such a old post, but I thought bring this up rather than start a new one, right?

To me, they are cats. Always have been and always will be. I cannot comprehend how someone can see them even remotely like dogs, and it ticks me off to constantly see Suicune portrayed as a wolf. What the hell are the leopard spots, if not for decoration, are for if he's a wolf, hm? Raikou is a tiger in my mind, with entei a lion, and suicune a leopard. I could go on and on and argue all day, but I can't change someone's mind, and I know that (if it isn't obvious, I hate dogs). For me, Raikou looks most obviously like a tiger, a big cat, and why would the other two be dogs if he was a big cat? Everything in Pokemon comes in threes nowadays- triple battles, Legendary trios, three starters, three evolutions...one cat/two dogs...um...

Which brings me to, beasts. Like Beast from Beauty and the Beast. He doesn't look like either cat or dog, so he's a beast. So the cats are beasts. I'll still view them as cats, though. Unless they're all hyenas... A zoo told me once that people mistook hyenas for either a cat or dog...when they're neither both...hmm...

While I will admit they look more like cats then dogs, they are known as the Legendary Beasts, and have qualities of both animal species.

I have always heard them referred to as dogs by the few people I know who like pokemon, but I always thought they looked mor elike cats.

I guess beasts makes more sense

I don't see why it matters what you call them, really. They're just Pokémon. I just refer to them as 'Johto's legendary trio' or 'Entei, Raikou, and Suicune'.

From my point of wiew, they are more feline-like. Suicune is very leopard-like, while Raikou definetly resembles a sabre-toothed tiger and Entei a Lion of some kind. But again, its JUST MY POINT of wiew. Arguing is worthless because they were designed to have both canine and feline features, even though fans have chosen to call them "The Dog trio".

According to bulpedia, they resemble, first of all, a Quilin and I agree awesome.gif Let 'em be beasts.

In my opinion it looks like they are a mix of both, dog and cat.

They are meant to have the characteristics of both canines and felines. It doesn't really matter to me what they look like.

I consider them to be hyenas. Hyenas look like cats, but upon closer inspection, they're dogs. They have both feline and canine characteristics.

yay i finally get to debate xD

first off I strongly believe they are Cats, why? because what kind of dog do you know of that roars? also their eyes, I'm pretty sure they have cat eyes. Also they look like they don't have tails but as you can see all three of them have tails right on their back, Long, Flowing Tails! you can see Raikou has a tail and so does Suicune well he has 2 lol and Entei has one like a long haired cat a big fluffy tail. and Lastly you can obviously see the way that their legs are built big bulky and furry like larger cats

Raikou: what dog has black stripes and big teeth, and whiskers? none cause I'm pretty sure they don't. he's more like a Tiger or Saber tooth Tiger.

Entei: also Entei roars as you see in the 3rd pokemon movie, and dogs don't roar they growl and bark, plus he has a mane like a Lion and big paws.

Suicune: OK he was a little hard to see at first but now I see him as a Leopard or a Cheetah cause of how skinny he is and the way he runs, well he sprints more than runs, at first he looked a little like a bobcat cause bobcats have spots and hair on their chin...also when he roars in the Celebi movie it does sound like a bark or a howl, but I listened closer and he sounded more like one of those rare Asian Leopards when they roar.

well this was fun...I know for a fact these are big cats not just because I love cats but you can see a lot of cat in them than dog...and it ticks me off cause I see a lot of these forums and see the people explaining what breed of big cat these pokemon look like but for some odd reason NO ONE has explained what dog breed they think they look like so if you know or think of a breed to call these pokemon let me know cause I would love to know xP

I call them beasts. They have characteristics of both. I used to call them dogs but they do have more big cat-like characteristics.

Going by Bulbapedia they're each a hybrid of a mythological creature and an animal. Raikou is a Raijū/saber-toothed tiger, Entei a Chinese guardian lion/regular lion, and Suicune a Qilin/cheetah (or leopard). There are a few other influences as well but those are the main ones.

So yeah, they were based on creatures that were a mash of animals to begin with, haha. The Qilin alone has traits of giraffes, deer, big cats, AND unicorns.
