We've been capitalizing it during this conversation simply to denote a specific group of Pokemon. However, the word "legendary" isn't capitalized in any of the articles for these Pokemon, or even for the actual article on legendary Pokemon, outside of the title. That makes it an adjective, not a proper noun.Note that we capitalize Legendary. It's a proper noun and a category; it would be like selling a bottled water called Blue Water. Does it have to meet the definition of "blue"? No.
Furthermore, all Legendary Pokemon are in a legend, or otherwise "of legend."
There are certain Pokemon that are referred to as legendary in game, such as the Legendary Birds, but to my knowledge, Mewtwo and Deoxys have never been referred to as such outside of fanon. I think the only reason Mewtwo was even considered a Legendary in the first place was because it was obtained the same way as the Birds in GenI.i was under the impression that Nintendo designated them as "Legendary" Pokemon
From the Official Regulations from the 2009 Video Game Championships website:I'm pretty sure that the VGC website listed those that were banned (as in, everything with a BST of 680, the event legendaries, and Arceus (who wasn't yet revealed) as "legendary".
Unless it's mentioned somewhere else on the website, then that's a nope.Pokémon Restrictions:

Effect percentage, that's a good idea for the next iteration of the movelists.Regarding the pokemon pages, I've noticed two things that nudges me:
1) Are there any plans on adding another column to the move tables where the chance of them having a side effect is displayed? For instance, Headbutt has a 30% chance of flinching, so between the Acc. and PP column, the number 30 would be shown.
2) There are currently 5 learnset lists: leveling up, TM/HM, breeding, tutoring and special moves. But what of the moves that only can be taught at an earlier evolution? For instance, I was looking over Piloswine's and Mamoswine's learnsets today, and before admitting that they couldn't learn Ice Shard, I looked at Swinub's profile as well to see if he could learn it. And lo and behold, he could through leveling up. If this information had been displayed at its higher evolutions, I'd just saved myself one page to look through.
Same goes for other pokes such as Poliwrath and Ludicolo, where most of their own moves can only be taught at a pre-evolutionary stage.
Well, I just went on a big cleanup, and checked every image used in glitch articles and was going through the Game Screenshots category finding quite a few when I hit this, meaning that image(s) with a name past Vacuum Cut is screwing it up. That/those image(s) need to be found.As for the Archives glitch category... I mumble, grumble, and glare at our resident glitch enthusiasts... because some of the files are uploaded at bad names due to the often very odd names of the glitch Pokémon. I'm glad they're researching, but... yeah. We're trying to fix that category; been trying for a while... It might be irreversibly f'd up.
Also, I seem to be unable to add the Bulbapedia Search engine to Firefox.Even though Crobat had always been illustrated with red pupils, HeartGold and SoulSilver are the first games in which its sprite actually shows this.
