Arcanine is Not really a Legendary Pokemon, it is just classified as "Legendary" but is not legendary itself, legendies do not evolve, Phione does not evolve into Manaphy, breeding Manaphy hatches Phione but doesn't mean Phione evolves into Manaphy. So Arcanine is not a legendary Pokemon.

Okay, here's the lowdown.

When pokemon was first created, they made four legendarys, Articuno, Zapdos, Ho-oh and Arcanine. Because snow and electricity come from the sky, they made two birds. But since fire comes from the ground, they made the third a pokemon that was ground based (Arcanine.) Ho-oh didn't really matter as it was rainbow, which also comes from the sky. Anyway, they showed all these pokemon in the first episode in the tablets/ruins. After this episode, they scrapped the idea and decided to make them all birds to go with the flow. So they created Moltres (Who looks less like a legendary bird.) They made Arcanine seem like a common pokemon by creating Growlithe. (This has happened to many pokemon. Sometimes a pokemon's evolution is created before the basic stage.) I don't know why they got rid of Ho-oh though. Arcanine is still considered as a legendary pokemon in the pokedex to this day.

This happens alot, mysterys in the world of pokemon, Missingno, Glitch City, The Pickup Truck. I have theories for these, tell me if you want to hear.

Well most of what was put in the first post was true. I'm not sure if Arcanine was really supposed to be a legendary though. It's classified as legendary, but I think that may just be because it's rare.

Though it is interesting to think of it. And it would be the first legendary to EVER have an evolution process. Oh, and Phione does not evolve into Manaphy. Phione is created by breeding a Manaphy with a Ditto in the day care, but does not evolve.

And after years of figuring it out, I have the true answers, someone make me a thread and I'll explain all.

You missed out a few parts there, but in a brief, yeah, no one is really going to care view, that's more or less it.

I suppose reading the whole thread would be too much.

It's people like you that make me click the mouse from my userCP to see a pointless post like that, and you don't even say 'Oh My God' properly! At least discuss something, preferably to do with Growlithe, I'm in the Growlithe mood tonight.

I knew this thread would soon turn into a debate. It's obvious why. Let's get down to business.

First of all, what your saying makes sense. Arcanine could've been a legendary. But we don't know if he was or not. This is all really based upon opinion. Nintendo never really said themselves that Arcanine was meant to be a legendary. There's just a big enough theory behind that and it makes sense. I don't blame you. When it showed Arcanine on the stone tablet, that backs up your theory.

Growlithe is debatable, but I myself, thinks that he was given to help show that Arcanine was a normal after he was downgraded from his legendary state, not saying he is legendary. Seeing as Arcanine has the highest base stats almost nearing Legendary pokemon status, that helps keep the theory up. Or some my say Arcanine is just strong.

All in all, this is opinionated. It's what you believe and was obviously made to test what others believe. So may I please ask that people just state their opinions and not debate on this subject? Thank you.^^

At least this kid has proper grammar. Ok, what he said was fair enough, but, like I said a few pages ago, I have an official thing that claims Arcanine was a legendary, when he was downgraded they created Growlithe... I still can't find that Bloody link though.

Thanks for the compliment.^^

Once you find the link, private message it to me. I'm interested in seeing it, due to the fact that I love Arcanine.

You really have an unhealthy fixation on being right all the time.
