I said this before the American release of Gold and Silver but I thought I should say it again. The legendary Pokemon are cats. They are based on Japanese gods that are definately cats (i.e. tiger like, leopard like and so forth). Anyone who says they are dogs should be sent to the pound. Besides legendary dogs would be downright silly. How can domesticated animals like dogs be legendary anyway?<G>

Hmm, yes...quite.

Let's just say that they're legendary BEASTS. Although, Entei looks like a cat, Suicune a dog, and Raikou some kind of messed up drug-trip.

Well the Egyptian god is jackal headed. The other canines you mentioned are not dogs or domesticated. Well dingos are a different story. They were originally domestic dogs that have become wild again over hundreds of years.

I think a while back we decided on calling them "Beasts". Either or it was the legendary mutant hamsters.

It's been a long time since I've seen the information but they are based on the gods of the North, South, West, and East skies. Not sure which Pokemon is based on which god since it's been so long. I'm surprised they didn't have a Pokemon based on the forth god. That god isn't cat like though it's a turtle with the tail of a serpent.

Umm...the same way as cats?

And last I heard, cats didn't bark...but then, I don't have a cat, so I wouldn't know.

They look like doggies to me.

Perhaps with time, we'll know for sure. Some of them (debatably all of them) have feline features, and being based on cat creatures in mythology would certainly help that argument a lot.

>>The other canines you mentioned are not dogs or domesticated. Well dingos are a different story. They were originally domestic dogs that have become wild again over hundreds of years.

Fine. We'll call them the Legendary Canines.

Entei is a big sheepdog. You can tell by the way the hair hangs off his face. He's too shaggy and too bulky to be a lion.

I can't tell you what kind of dog Raikou is supposed to be, but I can tell you he's supposed to be a dog. A cat has a very visible split in its upper lip (you can see it as a dark line extending directly down from its nose; just look at Persian). A dog has it too, but it's rarely visible (now look at Arcanine). And I don't see one on Raikou. "But he has tiger-stripes," you say. Well, by that logic, Electabuzz is a tiger...

And Suicune is either a coyote or a wolf. Its long, pointed muzzle is the giveaway...feline muzzles are short and dull.

OK there is no way in hell they are dogs... Look at the ruff around Raikou's head that is obviously a tiger which have this pronouced white ridge about thier face... The metal ridge above his mouth is definately a set of wiskers... and the teeth, since when have you heard of a sabre toothed dog? He is unquestionably a tiger.... The other two well neither show pronounced claws which is another dead give away they are not dogs. Look at Suicune's body posture... It has the body type of a creature made to pounce, and it's form is much to slender to be that of a dog.... Along with a short stubby muzzle and triangular face, a feline trade mark..... And Entei he is most arguably canine, almost like a Pekinese on steroids... But again he shows more cat like traits then dog.... He shows no claws meaning someone either clipped them or they're retractable... and his eyes.... Close set eyes on a slight slant towards the mouth are a dead give away.... He's just an ol kitty cat! That was your lesson for to day kiddies!! This is Doctor Stupid signing off.... ^_^

Last time I checked, dogs cant retract their claws, making htem show at all times. So that screws your "LOOK AT THEIR CLAWS!!" argument

::looks at his dog::

Ooooo, look who has a beard thingy!! That takes care of your tiger theory, tho Ill admit that guy does look feline. And Lopsy Opsos (sp???) tend to look all fucked up and tiger like. Im half ass more counter arguments, but Im too lazy

And look whos off to chase after a mouse... (yes, my dog)

Exactly... I'm arguing them to be cats.... and look at a picture of a tiger's face.... and try and tell me Raikou does not share the same facial construction.... That white ridge around the lower jaw is a tiger trade mark.... It's not just a beard, but something of a short pronounced mane framing his face.... So Nah! :P

Let me just say it wouldn't matter if they were cats in the japanese version because they are dogs here in america...this wasn't so hard to do with the legendary birds...just go to www.pokemasters.com and check the pokedex.

Actual Pokédex entries based on Necrosaro's data.

Raikou

Gold

The rain clouds it
carries let it
fire thunderbolts
at will. They say
that it descended
with lightning.

Silver

The rain clouds it
carries let it
fire thunderbolts
at will. They say
that it descended
with lightning.

Entei

Gold

Volcanoes erupt
when it barks. Un-
able to restrain
its extreme power,
it races headlong
around the land.

Silver

A POKéMON that
races across the
land. It is said
that one is born
every time a new
volcano appears.

Suicine

Gold

Said to be the
reincarnation of
north winds, it
can instantly
purify filthy,
murky water.

Silver

This POKéMON races
across the land.
It is said that
north winds will
somehow blow when-
ever it appears.

I don't see anything about what kind of legendary animal it is.

Nawww... I'm not sayin he's a cheetah.... I'm just sayin there are cat's that bark.... All pokemon are a melange of different animals, very few are based upon a single creature.... So cats can bark, and thus Entei is a barking cat.... ^_^ Though he may not be a cheetah....

I've heard my cat bark once or twice. Lukey think's he's a dog.
I've also seen some controversy over whether Arcanine is a tiger or a dog. I think Arcanine and Entei look like those animals you see on either side of temple gates in Japan and China. Sometimes they're dogs, sometimes they're lions. Maybe that's what the Legendary Whatevers are: temple guardians.

Exactly! After all, they're pokémon, which don't always link up directly with specific animals(what would Electabuzz be?)... look at Eevee and the Eeveelutions - they're sort of vulpine, sort of canine, but some are sort of feline, too(Espeon comes to mind). Eevee isn't a fox OR a cat OR a dog, it's an Eevee. Why should the legendary Beasts be any different?

Those of us who watch the anime will probably find out what class they've been put in eventually, but for now they're just Beasts.

Let's use a little common sense here. If Entei, Raikou, and Suicune were supposed to be cats, Nintendo certainly would not have used the word "bark" to describe Entei's noise. The R/B Pokédex discusses how Growlithe barks to keep intruders away; obviously Nintendo associates the act of barking with dogs. As anyone with at least a grade-school education should.

Keep in mind that these games are NOT aimed at ignorant teens who claim that cats are also well-known for barking. The games are aimed at younger kids. And when a young kid hears the word "bark," two things generally come to mind: trees and dogs.

And as far as the English version of the game is concerned, there's no such thing as a "Speed Ball." When you give a White Apricorn to Kurt, he gives you a Fast Ball.

Who says theyre all the same? Look at Raikou he IS a cat. NO dog has fangs like that. Suicune could be either IMO Coyote or whatever kind of cat you think it could be. Entei however is obviously a dog. The hair on his face covers his whole face like a sheep dog. Lions dont have manes like that nor do any other cats. Why this is such an issue is beyond me.

I think you guys are going WAY overboard with this. I mean, c'mon, the size of their FANGS?! this is pokémon, people, wake up! Nintendo aims this at 9 year olds and up, and nine year olds don't really care baout raikou's teeth. I think Velox summed it up pretty nicely, thought I don't know where the tree idea came from...

How do we know that Nintendo/Game Freak/Creatures meant them to be one or the other? They might just be generic beasts or a mix of the two.

I was talking about connections that little kids make when they hear the word "bark"...and trees have bark, y'know?

hehehe, there's also the same exact topic in the oddish memorial lecture hall. Only it started as "movesets for the legendary dogs"

*that;s what the topic said, not what i said.

In all honesty, what SOUNDS better to all of you? Legendary DOGS or CATS? Don't call them dogs/cats, that's just plain stupid, and the name doesn't flow well. c'mon. Legendary...wait hold on.........POKEMON!!

Now where the hell did that come from?

*cough* PAWPRINTS *cough* ...excuse me...

In the end, they're Legendary Pokemon, regardless. If you guys think this is a weird topic, I'm gonna hit you with another question....
...Are the Pokemon of the Bulbasaur series plants or animals? I mean, the bulb on its back goes through processes like photosynthesis and taking in sunlight, so it should be a plant, right? But wait, Bulbasaur eats regular food...now i'm confusing myself...whatever...

Charizard I think the politically correct term that the Bulbasaurs prefer is... Hybirds, wait that wouldn't be right since bird is the root maybe it's just Plantish Dinosaurs.

Geez, footitch, you're 2 for 2. That's the second time you've threatened someone, namely me, with death. This post and Kabutops' post. Calm your ass down.

They isn't any way to COMPLETLY nail down a specific species for the G/S pokes because they are MONSTERS. POCKET MONSTERS. Since when are monsters real animals? A monster can resemble a real animal, but in the end, it's a separate creature.

I don't see why this is such a big deal. 0_o

Where do you think the phrase "Who let the dogs out?" came from? The incident where you awaken the statues in Legendary Tower.
