Legendary Pokémon are types of Pokémon species that appear in every Pokémon video game. They are rare Pokémon that are not only hard to catch, but can also be hard to find. Each game has a certain amount of Legendary Pokémon, with Pokémon Diamond and Pearl having the most (a whopping 14). Usually, the cover mascot for a Pokémon video game is a Legendary, however some games such as Pokémon Red and LeafGreen feature the final evolved form of a starter Pokémon on their box art.
