To be fairly honest I wasn't that excited to see Victini for the first time, unlike the gummy bear Rankurusu. It didn't seem as cute or as well-designed as any other 'mascot Pokemon' there has been to date...At first glance I thought of Digimon, then slightly deeper in it shifted to one of them, Patamon. All the colors used for Victini are exactly the same as Patamon...Want proof?
We first saw Victini at the end of a 14th Pokemon movie teaser, featuring Reshiram and Zekrom (Pokebeach did this one). Victini, then unnamed, was shown waving to the audience at the very end with the message 'see you in the theatres!' 14th movie confirmed to star Victini? I think so.
It's also confirmed to be a legendary Pokemon with an Isshu Pokedex number that would make MissingNo. jealous- #000. Blasphemy! MissingNo is and will always be the number zero! It's there in Gen 1, Gen 2 and Gen 3! It even has its own Pokedex entry when it isn't busy destroying your game save files.
This shot is from Pokemon Ruby/Sapphire.
But I digress...it's only number zero in the Isshu Dex, and not the National Dex. But why put it there in the first place? There's always an extra slot after Zekrom ends the list, you know. Which brings us to its National Dex number. Is it after Arceus(#493) and before Tsutaaja(#494, #495 if Victini goes here), or will logic kick in and place it right after Zekrom? But for all we know, the two box legendaries could be right in the middle of the Pokedex just for laughs. Oh Game Freak...how you enjoy messing with the games.
It's also a legendary that's decently cute and given away at Wi-fi promotion periods, which draws comparisons to the likes of Mew, Celebi, Jirachi, Manaphy and Shaymin. Victini, when stacked up against any of those five Pokemon, doesn't stand a chance. It's not good enough. But factor out the five cute legendaries and Victini can stand on its own as a pretty good Pokemon. Now all we need to know is its type...it better not be Psychic again, we're already overloaded with them in Gen 5 as it is (Rankurusu, Gochiruzeru, Munna/Musharna...even Koromori).
Now I know this all sounds like geek talk, but it's all true. Really, tell me Victini is cuter than any of the five Pokemon I mentioned. It's not, right? Oh yeah, and ignore anyone who tries to tell you Victini looks like a penis. Those are the same people who try to visualize every other Pokemon as resembling genitals every other day.
