    Dancing Chocobo Who was your favorite of the original three Legendary Bird Pokemon?

    Articuno?

    Zapdos?

    Moltres?

    I think I gotta hand it to Articuno myself. It helped me through my first ever Elite Four victory.

    Zapdos!

    All goblin rituals serve a dual purpose as fertility rites, even the destructive ones. Especially the destructive ones.

    Although I love fire, Zapdos is the biggest badass here! :P

    Zapdos, although it's been so long at this point I can barely remember which one's which, much less their abilities.

    It's a toss up between Articuno and Zapdos. I can remember being so nervous of not catching Zapdos that I ended up using my Master Ball on him.

    I'll go with Zapdos. I have a soft spot for electric types.

    Articuno, ice is one of my favorite types. And it looks the best.

    Definitely Articuno. Best looking and awesome element (even if the Type is pretty terrible).

    Articuno, decent Ice-types in this game were hard to come by.

    Jynx, Dewgong, Cloyster, and Lapras. I think that was it.

    It's hard to remember how good they were, because it's been so long since I played Gen I. I know Cloyster didn't get really good until later. I always really liked Lapras, but I don't remember how well it performed in Gen I.

    Jynx only had about two Ice type abilities, one of which was a physical skill that didn't work so well with her weak physical. Her skill set is pretty awful to be honest. Her best attribute is being the earliest Ice type you can get.

    The other three are Water-types first with Ice being their secondary property, though I would agree that all three are good, but it's largely for how versatile water types were in Gen-1. None of this is helped by Ice-Types being late arrivals in the game.

    Who cares, there are dozens of better Pokemon than any of them. Articuno and Moltres making appearances in LoL and Dota 2 is pretty cool though.
