Do We Even Need Legendary Pokemon Anymore?

Reading now: 688

Who's your favourite Legendary Pokemon? No wait, don't tell me. It's either a) the box Legendary from the first game you played, b) from Gen 1 or 2, or c) both.

Legendary Pokemon have been a core part of Pokemon's formula, and a driving force in the endgame, since the very first instalment.

But do we even need them anymore? Scarlet & Violet seems to think we don't, and it's probably on to something. Legendary Pokemon have, for a long time, been very dull.

They're just vaguely some weird energy/cosmic thing, and they are caught between a Geodude and a hard place. They constantly seem to feel pressure to raise the stakes, and with a literal god already on the roster, there's no real room to grow.
