    Pokemon Gold and Silver versions introduced three legendary Pokemon: Raikou, Entei, and Suicune. They were also the first roaming Pokemon in the series. Which one do you like best? Please remember not to spam and explain your choice a bit.

    For me, my favorite is easily Suicune. I love its graceful design and its blue color, and it was great that Suicune ended up being the version mascot for Crystal and having the story center around it.

    Raikou is my favorite due to it being underrated. I've always wondered why Entei and Suikun tend to be more popular than Raikou, but I feel that Raikou's design is generally perfect.

    Suicune, because it's design is my favourite of the three (and blue is my favourite colour), it's my favourite type, and it was a big help on my original Gold team many years ago (I gave it a pretty bad moveset overall, but its Surf helped me a lot at least).

    I'm choosing Suicune. She just looks so majestic and royal. Purple and blue are also my favourite colours, and I just love her design and the fact that she's supposed to represent the aurora or Northern Lights. ;245;

    I think I'll go with Raikou. It's one of my favorite types and I really like its design. Entei comes a close second, though.

    My favourite out of all of those would very easily be Suicune. I liked its elegant look, particularly with the crystal on its head, the purplish hair from its neck and its ribbons coming from its back, and how serious it looks in terms of its design.

    My Suikun's moveset in Gold was pretty bad too, although what irked me more was that Suikun is more defense-oriented than Entei and Raikou.

    My favourite is Raikou because of its high Speed and Special Attack. I like the other two, too, but Suicune doesn't hit that hard and I never liked the fact Entei lacked a good Physical Fire move outside of event-exclusive Flare Blitz before X/Y, and even then, stealing Ho-oh's signature move irked me. Frankly, I think they should have replaced Fire Blast in its level-up movepool with Flare Blitz in Generation IV, especially since Fire Blast is a TM move that can be purchased in said generation.

    My favorite is probably Raikou, just for the fact that I don't like how the Entei in the movie wasn't real and I don't like how Suicune got special treatment. And yes I am aware that these are terrible reasons lol. I also feel kinda bad for Raikou not getting as much attention as the other two which I partly blame on its terrible GS sprite, poor thing.

    Raikou. I like it's design and it's a shame it got less attention than the other two.

  13. I selected Entei and I seem to be one of the few who liked him. Also, does anyone else hate when the trio is called "dogs" when two of the three resemble felines?

    I never really had a favorite. I never HAD them. They are so annoying to get that I just never bothered. And it's hard getting a good nature for them as well.

    Mine would be Raikou. I like its speed and Special Attack power.

    They were difficult to catch, except for Suikun in Crystal version since it was stationary. But for Entei and Raikou, I used Master Balls to make things easier.

    My favourite of the three is Suicune, I used to draw it over and over again as a kid copying Ken Sugimori's art and it was one of my original favourite Pokémon back in Gen 2.
    Pokémon Crystal is hands down my favourite version as well so there's that too!

    I still call them dogs by habit as in all the magazines I would read back as a kid they would be referred to as the legendary dogs and a couple of Japanese friends I have call them dogs. But the non beta versions are obviously feline.

    No natures in G/S/C so that trouble is set aside :p

    I have them now in Gold/ Silver. The only other time I had them was Leaf Green and they were terrible.

    I ran into them on accident and used a master ball. I had a couple master balls because of the cloning glitch.

    I haven't tried using them yet because I don't like using legendaries. It's from back in the day when I had to ban legendaries because I could never beat my brother's team with a Mewtwo in it. I didn't have a Mewtwo at the time because I accidently knocked it out and saved, not realizing it wouldn't come back.

    Raikou even though his Gold and Silver back sprite looked awful. Entei is a close second since I love lion Pokemon.

    Crystal version fixed Raikou's sprite since even its front sprite in G/S had a horribly inaccurate facial structure that didn't match Raikou's official design.
