• Hi all
    Just a notice, we recently discovered that someone got into a moderator account and started hard deleting a load of key and legacy threads...around 150 threads have been lost dating back to 2007 and some weeks ago so we can't roll the forums back.
    Luckily no personal data could be accessed by this moderator, and we've altered the permissions so hard deleting isn't possible in the future
    Sorry for any inconvenience with this and sorry for any lost posts.

Beasts, because they sure don't look like cats nor dogs.

They are Legendary Cat-Dogs. They were all born with a wolf and a purr, and I heard their births caused a little stir.

Dogs.... what else....?

Before Pokémon Gold/Silver came out, there was a mention from Nintendo: "more dogs? there are rumors." And there is. Suicune seems to be a cat, at least to Eusine. There was also a mention of a skateboard that "you could use to get over railings" on the route north of Goldenrod still being beta back then. (the screen-shots looked awesome, similar to Celestic Town where CYNTHIA lives) Also, if they do happen to be cats, wouldn't it be similar to Yu-Gi-Oh? I get the "dog" joke, though. Just say it backwards!
They look feline to me.


Follow my lead!
Raikou seems pretty cat-ish to me. Suicune Half-dog Half-deer thingy. Entei... beats me


That Psychic Trainer
It's kind of obvious just by looking at them that they're cats.

Raikou = Saber Tooth Tiger
Entei = Lion
Suicune = Cheetah

I've heard people call the Legendary Dogs. Thats the term I use most. I've also heard them refered to as the Legendary Beast. That seems to fit more.


Lan challenges you!
a tiger (Raikou - shape of black thunders throughout its body), a lion (Entei - its mane) and a wolf with feline characteristics (Suicune)... I think they are cats...


You have no idea how many times I've wished everyone could just call them "beasts" and stop this overdone argument from happening again and again and again and again...

As for my personal opinion:
Raikou:Tiger. You're blind or something if you DON'T see a tiger in that.
Entei:When I first saw its GS sprite, I thought it was a dog. When I saw its official & anime art, I thought it was a lion. I'm sticking with it being a lion, really.
Suicune: Hell if I know. I always saw it as a unicorn, but everyone I've told that to thinks that's completely weird and off. On the other hand, I absolutely cannot see a wolf/panther/cheetah/any number of other weird things people have seen in it. Therefore, I declare Suicune to be a "thing."


Many many years ago I heard the gerbil thing so now I see them as gerbils...
