• 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.

Legendary Beasts works best.
Beasts. How about that?
beasts not cat, not dog.
I'm pretty sure they are Legendary Pokemon... maybe Beasts if you want to be technically, but I don't know any dogs or cats that breathe fire among other things. Pokemon are pokemon, they might be based on some real life creature, but it's a lot simpler to leave it at that. Use your imagination and call them whatever you want. Either that or call the pokemon designers and ask them specifically what they based certain pokemon off of.
Oh god, this again?

They're gerbils. Deal with it.

In all actuality, Entei is a lion, Suicune is a wolf, and Raikou is a tiger.

There is no collective title for them other then "Legendary beasts" or "Legendary four-legged animals".
... Again? I thought that there was already a poll for this in the 2nd Gen. Disc.

Like before, I simply call them Beasts.
Legendary Beasts... can we get enough of these Legendary Cats/Dogs threads?
I agree with all these. Can we quit bawwwing yet?

I don't think we need to put a label on it... but if I must choose, I'm going with cats...

Entei, the mane makes it clearly based off a lion... Raikou would be a tiger, hence the stripes... And suicune, slightly more difficult, but probably a leopard or jaguar because of the diamond spots on the sides of its bodies...


Master of the Sea
i dont think they are cats OR dogs.
they seem like mixtures of cats and dogs to be honest. How about we call them the legendary beasts? thats what i call them, anywho.

The legendary "dogs" aren't dogs, but in fact gerbils. Yea, I said it

I could've sworn there was already a thread for this but they are the beasts. They can't be dogs because a lion and smilodon aren't dogs. IDK what Suicune is.

Well-Known Member
They always looked more like Cats to me, but they're often referred to as "Dogs", so I tend to go with that.


They're beasts. That's the only way to describe them.


Veteran Trainer
