* Genderless Legendary Pokémon who appear in the anime are usually given a voice that is either identifiably male or female, if able to [[Talking Pokémon|converse with humans]]. One exception is {{OBP|Arceus|M12}} in the original Japanese, who was voiced by Akihiro Miwa (a female impersonator) in order to give it an androgynous-sounding voice.
* While the first Mythical Pokémon, Mew, was added to the original games right before release, the concept of "{{tt|illusory|Same term translated as 'mythical' by TPCi}} monsters" already existed in [[Satoshi Tajiri]]'s pitch for [[Capsule Monsters]]. Some of them were said not to be catchable, and some not even encounterable. As an example, there would be a "Green Dragon" that could only be found rarely in a specific area of a dungeon, and it would have taken around 2 hours to find and catch.<ref name="ref1">[ GlitterBerri's Game Translations » Early Concept Art]</ref>
* [[Deoxys_(Pokémon){{p|Deoxys]]}} is the only Mythical Pokémon to become Legendary,available havingin beena event-exclusivecore priorseries togame [[Pokémonwithout Omegaan Ruby and Alpha Sapphire{{pkmn2|Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire]]event}}.
** Because Mythical Pokémon and Legendary Pokémon were not considered to be distinct terms in the translated versions prior to Generation VConsequently, Deoxys actuallyis switchedthe fromonly Legendary to MythicalPokémon at the startend of Generationa V, meaning that it was only Mythical for one Generationgeneration (although it was an Illusory Pokémon in the[[National JapanesePokédex]] versionsorder) sincethat itsisn't introduction)event-exclusive.
