Somepoint I"ve kind of wondered about the legendary Pokemon is which ones are one-of-a-type "PokeGods" in-universe, and which ones are simply super-rare powerful Pokemon. So I"ve done what any type of would certainly carry out and also decided to ask you guys for your opinions/clarification.Here"s a couple of lists I"ve made so much. These are identified mainly by usage by other trainers and/or relevance in their game"s story.One-of-a-kind:

You are watching: Are there multiple legendary pokemon

-Mewtwo-Mew-Lugia-Ho-oh-Celebi-Groudon-Kyogre-Rayquaza-Jirachi-Uxie-Mesprit-Azelf-Dialga-Palkia-Giratina-Manaphy-Shaymin-Arceus-Victini-Reshiram-Zekrom-Kyurem-Xerneas-Yveltal-Zygarde...basically all the ~680 BST mons and legendary pixies.
-Articuno-Zapdos-Moltres-Raikou-Entei-Suicune-Regirock-Regice-Registeel-Latias-Latios-Heatran-Phione (though "legendary" is disputable)

Well, it"s been proclaimed numerous times in the Pokemon universe that Lugia have actually been watched with their offspring, so there"s absolutely more than among them.In the movie, tright here were 5 Genesect (One of them shiny), so there"s obviously even more than among them as well; they"re just super-rare. (Read: preserved in a laboratory to defend the civilization from them).


^ Tbelow is no singular Pokemon canon. Each develop of media (games, animu, manga, etc) represents its very own, separate canon. As a general dominion though, I"m pretty certain that the "Word of God" answer (to usage a trope name) is that legendary Pokemon aren"t necessarily one-of-a-type, simply extremely rare. For instance, your contention that Dialga, Palkia, and also Giratina are "among a kind" is straight contradicted by an occasion where Arceus creates a Dialga, Palkia, or Giratina out of nopoint despite taking place after the occasions of Platinum. And that"s not to point out trying to describe why multiple trainers have actually discovered stuff prefer the pixies, legendary birds, etc in different areas (i.e. the Computers of DPPt or BW2). It"s best not to think also much about these points bereason Gamefreak/Nintencarry out does not treatment about lore or consistency also much, kind of choose how Zelda fans have been fighting for years over the timeline of the games or if the Links are also the exact same.

If we are considering the anime, then Tornadus, Thundurus, and also Landorus are just super-rare. They show up on the Island of Legends (before Ash battles Clay, once he looks for resurgence herbs), and then aacquire in the undersea holy place (episode Unova"s Survival Crisis).Genesect also are just exceptionally rare because 5 of them exist in Genesect and also the Legfinish Awakened.The legendary dogs would certainly be one-of-a-type due to the circumstance of their creation.Heatran and also the Lati twins would just be super-rare bereason they can be recorded in their region (Hoenn for Lati
