About This Quiz

There are hundreds (almost a thousand) Pokemon, and each of them is special in its own way. But there are few, about 60 or so, that are incredibly rare and even more powerful. They are known as Legendary Pokemon. These Pokemon are usually said to be myths, until they are seen by the humans in the Poke world. 

While it is hard to know what makes a Pokemon legendary, it is pretty obvious when you spot one either because of its appearance or sheer power. However, they do have a few things in common: most legendary Pokemon do not have a sex, they don't usually hatch from eggs or have the ability to breed, nor can they evolve (most of them)- but some can change their appearance. It is also very rare that a Legendary Pokemon be owned by a trainer, although they can be befriended and asked for help by everyday people.

These fascinating Pokemon are extremely popular, which is why we want to know how well you know them. Do you think you can name these Legendary creatures if we show you a picture? It's time to dig into your Poke knowledge and see if you pass or fail!
