Title: Raikou's special day!
Post by: Chaos Hiruko on November 17, 2009, 08:53:19 pm
Raikou doesn't get much recognition, unlike Entei and Suicune. They starred in movies. Raikou had a special that didn't include Ash and Co. They were seem multiple times by Ash and Co. Raikou was seen by Misty's Togepi and a Houndoom we'll never see again. They ONLY thing Raikou has above the other two is: Wattson had Raikou robots guarding his Gym.
So I'm making every Monday of the 4th week of March Raikou Appreciation Day!
(March, being the 3rd month. Monday, being the second day of the week.)

Yay, Raikou. =]
I've always wanted to see a movie centered around the 3 dogs.

Raikou has the coolest battle theme of any of the 3, and the coolest looks. Also, he gets an episode without the main characters. Awesome to me.

Raikou deserves an appreciation day for the sole reason that is it underappreciated. Personally I don't like it very much for multiple reasons, but it's always bothered me that Entei got a movie and Suicune got a game and several episodes while Raikou was stuck with only a somewhat unpopular special.

Yep. That's why I made this day, as Raikou is underappreciated.

Yeah, he does seem underappreciated. Its kind of weird that some legendaries are like that. I think Palkia is less popular than Dialga since it only appeared in 2 Pokemon films while Dialga was in the whole DP trilogy (Palkia was not in Giratina & the sky warrior). Groudon appeares as a boss of the main story in both mystery dungeon series as well (technically an illusion in PMD2, still a Groudon anyways) but Kyogre was a "post-game" boss in those games.

Don't forget Phione...

Raikou and Entei are my favorites out of the legendary trio.

Because Raikou is kind of like Jolteon?

I dunno, I guess I just like electric and Fire Types.

Entei's my favorite, but Raikou is underrated.

Well, news has risen.
The next Pokemon Movie: "Phantom Champion Z" has Entei (the real one/SECOND MOVIE APPEARANCE!!!)), Suicune (SECOND MOVIE APPEARANCE!!), and.....RAIKOU!!!! As well as Celebi (SECOND MOVIE APPEARANCE!!!!). Unknown if Lugia and Ho-oh will appear as well. Most likely, unless there is ANOTHER movie, and they are featured in that one.

EDIT: It is now "Phantom Champion Zoroark".

I wonder if Raikou will actually do anything in the new movie, or if it will just be there for rabid Raikou fans like you.

There is something cool about Raikou, he seems to stick out from some of the other legendaries mainly because of his cool cry and pose. I agree that he has probably hasn't been so popular because of the influence of other Pokémon such as Jolteon. When taking Suicune for example, who seems to be one of the world's favourite legendary dogs there aren't that many Pokémon that look similar to Suicune.

Happy Raikou Appreciation Day everyone!!!

On a side note, Raikou appeared in my SoulSilver 2 days ago!

Happy Raikou Appreciation Day indeed! I think it was intentionally made to appear early. Raikou and Entei appeared just after I defeated Whitney.

That HAS to be a glitch. You're supposed to release them from the Burned Tower first, which is more than right after Whitney.

Wait, I'm confusing things. *bangs head on keyboard* The first time I saw Raikou and Entei was on Route 42. Sorry, it was a few months ago.

That makes more sense. You released them first.

Happy late Raikou Appreciation Day, everyone!

Yep!
And despite all I did for it, Raikou just WON'T get caught!
Entei was caught with no problem.
