As people have said, hackers have apparently leaked 3 possible event legendaries. And since GameFreak seems to consider adding Mega Evolutions into the total amount of Pokemon (because including Mega Evolutions we have 100+ Pokemon) we could consider factoring Mega Mewtwo X and MMY and also Mega Lati~s into the number too. So even though it seems like we only have the Aura trio, we potentially have 10 Legendaries this time around but 4 of them are Mega Evolutions.

The one thing I am disappointed in is the apparent lack of a "normal" trio with 580 base stat total. Like the birds, beasts, regis, lake trio, musketeers, and kami trio. It doesn't seem like we have that this time around.

It was apparently leaked by hackers that the game has at least 3 more legendaries. Chances are there are still more to come that haven't been discovered yet.

i honestly don't care if there are less legendarys. wouldn't normally use them anyway.
but in gen 6 it feels like there are only about 70(?!) new pokemon and that's what really makes me grind my gears.

i mean, yes... goomy on it's own counts as 10 new pokemon....

they shortened it probably because of the 12 in the previous gen xD people were upset (me including) that there were so many of the pokemon that were supposed to be "rare"

or maybe they were just out of ideas. Look at some of their pokemon for this gen. Many of them are not very creative....

sorry, this is just my opinion xD I doubt many people agree with me

the only thing i wish they did was have a trio, that was more a staple, The bird trio, the beast trio, the regi trio, the emotion trio, the justice trio.

you say that... then the events drop in like crazy, either that or nintendo thinks the fans would be satisfied with mega-evolutionss or gonna troll the early buyers of X and Y with a pokemon Z version in 2014.

I think it's because people were complaining that there were so many Legendaries. But I was hoping for a fairy trio group for the 6th gen.

PS. Z Legendary looks like it has a city on it's back.

are you sure? she's part of the sea guardians

The sea guardian Pokémon are a legendary duo that, somewhat like Mewtwo and Mew, is comprised of a parent and child. Manaphy, a legendary Pokémon that makes its home in colder seas south of the known regions, bears Phione when bred in captivity in the known regions.

Because there are so many legendaries already, that the originality just isn't there anymore. That, and ain't the MegaEvolutions 'legendaries' on themselves already? I'm only glad there aren't that many legendaries around this time. A legendary should feel like a legend, with its own unique story and feel. No need to squish more legendaries into a game that won't even be an addition.

thing is, you could say each regions legendaries are like a religion's gods, there can be many or few, but they all have the same effect on their region... mystery and representation of some piece of the natural world.

Maybe there's a few more that are undiscovered? But anyway, I think that there was bound to be a time when they decided to cut down the huge amount of legendaries....

maybe because since the whole 3d thing has taken lots of time and money to develop the game it would take even more time and money to make lots more legendary pokemon nevertheless making them all 3d so they stuck with 3. the same reason with the amount of new pokemon there are there are only a couple of few to save time and money

Story wise I liked them, they had more of an impact story wise then the genies and at least they looked cute. The Genies just looked weird to me.

there should be a trio, but that being said gen 5 had two trios so maybe they're laying off the trios
and celebi, deoxys, jirachi, darkrai, shaymin,arceeus, victini, keldeo, meloetta and genesect are all event and some of the others are REALLY hard to get

I've heard a theory that since they had to remake every single pokemon sprite in 3D they chose to make this gen smaller in number. Dunno whether there's any truth to that, but I like the short amount of legendaries

Maybe the rest are hidden/undiscovered?  That would be really sad....  I know the event legendaries are revealed later (Victini, Shaymin, etc.)  But there's always the legendary trio....
