Top 10 Legendary Pokemon of All Time

Legendary Pokémon are a staple of the Pokémon franchise. Almost every game requires catching at least one to complete the story. They often feature the coolest designs and that is what brings us here today.

Here’s our ranking of the 10 Coolest Legendary Pokemon of All Time.

10.Rayquaza

Honestly, some of the snake Pokemon are pretty boring, that’s just a fact. However, then there is Rayquaza, the huge green serpent from the sky. It’s entirely possible that Rayquaza would have been just as delightfully menacing without the arms, but it unites all Pokémon. Also considering the yellow rings and missile-like fins, this snake seems to be constantly ready to growl.

When it comes to designs that range from cool to nightmarish, it’s up there. Imagine showing up at a Pokemon battle and launching your huge green sky god.

9. Zapdos

Zapdos sticks with the yellow and black design that some other first-gen Electric Pokémon have because, well, that color combination is awesome. Zapdos’ electrical design gives it a natural camouflage to hide in a thunderstorm, given all the irregular angles of its wings and tail.

Zapdos is the perfect level of cool among birds simply because it fits so neatly into the sky like lightning come true.

8. Xernea

Of course, there are other deer Pokémon, but Xerneas is a world apart. From the broad collarbones to the colorful golden antlers, Xerneas has the appearance of a forest god. There’s not much that could be cooler than imagining seeing light reflecting off your antlers on the forest floor. Xerneas is one of the main reasons, if not the only reason, to choose Pokémon X over Y.

7. Groudon

Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire is where the Pokemon games changed. Now, coming to a new generation of laptops, gaming looked great and felt bigger. This new world helped portray the idea that Groudon could absolutely burn you by proximity alone.

The idea that Groudon could completely change the landscape of the world made sense. You have to see this Pokémon on screen and feel the scale and warmth that the design easily exudes. Catching Groudon felt like having an Apocalypse-level Pokemon, and nothing is cooler than that.

6. Zacian

Zacian is unique in that it is the only Legendary Pokemon to carry an external weapon in a special form. The sword carried only adds to Zacian’s majesty. Although the swordless version is less conspicuous, it is still visually appealing.

The deep blue body combined with the pink coat is a great combination. The majestic look of the golden crown and wings only adds to the mystery and majesty of this Pokémon. Also, like Xerneas for X and Y, Zacian is the reason Pokemon Sword was chosen over Shield.

5. Suicune

If that proves anything, it’s that Legendary Dog Pokémon are the best designed. Suicune can easily be described as someone who is completely elegant looking. Paired with the ribbon and mane, Suicune gives off the perfect vibe to suit her deep ocean theme.

Suicune follows Zapdos in being the coolest of his trio due to his appearance perfectly matching his favorite type and habitat. The other dogs seem too gruff or threatening, while Suicune exudes the real confidence of knowing exactly how cool he really is.

4. Lugia

If I had to find a Pokémon that had to cover being a bird with an ocean theme, I don’t think I could come close to Lugia. The massive size and excellent silver coloration add up to an incredible sight. The glorious look of eyeliner is what makes this Pokemon’s gaze so incredibly piercing.

This hulking, flying bird was given a similar cinematic treatment to Mewtwo, and that only added to the majesty of the design. Its massive wingspan and size only reinforce the feeling that only the most worthy trainers could catch the legendary Lugia.

3. Mewdos

Mewtwo was the first true villain in anime. The scenes in the movie showing Mewtwo in the armor provided a fun alternative to the Pokémon underneath. Once out of the armor, there was Mewtwo, looking like a big cat while he was fiercely threatening.

This Legendary Pokémon has always exuded power and strength. No attack in the anime has ever looked more deadly/destructive than the purple plasma balls Mewtwo wields, and that’s really cool.

2. Arceus

While Arceus has an almost ghostly white/gold look and is perfectly designed, that’s not even the main reason it’s on this list. Other than that, Arceus is said to be the reason for the existence of the entire Pokémon universe.

Since this list includes other gods, it stands to reason that there is a place for the coolest of them all, the god responsible for all the other gods’ existence. Being the reason Pokémon exist the way they do is great.

1. Meow

You’re crazy if you went into this game not expecting it to be the number 1 choice. Mew is the quintessential Legendary Pokémon that almost every Pokémon player in the past spent time hunting. Also, the design is simply excellent.

Mew is beyond adorable in a way that you just want to squish him down and then watch him float around lazily. It is the Pokémon that, once caught, makes you realize the value and fun of Legendary Pokémon. On top of all that, again, it’s very cute. The fact that it’s the only other of the two Pokémon that can use Transform naturally is an amazing trait.
