Legendary pokemon are so forgettable to me that I originally forgot Victini here was even from the fifth generation at all, and very briefly had a review of it up for the previous gen, not that it makes a whole lot of difference. It's passable as a pseudo-mew, cute and iconic, but nothing amazing. I guess their ultimate goal was to have one of these for every major type, since we've had psychic, grass, steel/psychic, water and now fire-type "mews" up to this point. When are we getting a bug, poison or ghost-type "mew?" Come on!

The only kind of interesting thing about Victini is that it comes FIRST in this generation's pokedex. It's #000 in the regional dex and 494 in the national dex. It's not entirely rationalized or explained, just kind of a gimmick.
