Raikou!

And on to the legendaries. In GSC (and HG/SS), supposedly these critters were made as the result of Ho-oh bringing 3 Pokemon who died when the silver shrine burned down.

A popular fan theory is/was that the three that died were the original Eeveelutions (Vaporeon to Suicune, Jolteon to Raikou, and Flareon to Entei). And there was some game info that backs this up- I mean, not only do each of them share a single element type, but they share the same hidden abilities as well! Same relative stat distro (Jolteon and Raikou have high SP Atk and Speed). And to top it all off? The kimono girls in the games who frequent the shrines, often battle using the Eevee line, thus the three dying in fire? Not implausible. 

Suicune!

I never owned Pokemon Crystal, but Suicune always struck me as a bit of a trouble maker. That darn blue dog. Always getting into my pool and disappearing. :P

The most common thing that goes through my mind when I see it in illustrations or anime is that, “I hope it’s neck is okay.” The blue crystal on it’s head looks so heavy…  Poor little, er… Big beasty.

Houndour!

So… I’ve only recently learned that you the “dour” in Houndour is pronounced so that it rhymes with “hour.” I had been pronouncing it as “dor” kinda like Hodor in Game of Thrones. Ah well. Nothing changes… Save for I guess it’s name making a bit more sense as a dark-type Pokemon. 

Also… Kinda partial to this critter as it reminds me a lot of my own real life pup. :3
