Default Re: Legendary Pokémon: Your Thoughts?

Personally, I hate writing Legendary Pokemon in my stories, and consequently haven't done so in any so far. I think that lies mostly in my preference in writing the Pokemon world in as realistic a way as possible, thus focusing primarily on everyday situations, how they are warped in the Pokemon world, and what can go wrong with them.

I find that interaction with Legendaries makes the story surreal and a bit cliche. I don't want to write about some special trainer that discovers they have some connection with a certain Legendary or gain aid from one at some point in the story. I like for the character to rely on his own wit and skill to get out of a sticky situation, much like in the real world, where you aren't going to directly get help from any god, but have to do it yourself.

I don't know. Maybe I'm just weird. :]
