::::::I see no reason to split them up. Mythical Pokémon are in fact legendary Pokémon, just extremely rare legendary Pokémon. No one could possibly argue that Arceus is not in fact a legend despite being a myth, for example. --[[User:BlackButterfree|BlackButterfree]] ([[User talk:BlackButterfree|talk]]) 16:35, 21 January 2016 (UTC)
:::::::Note that this page defines Mythical Pokémon as "a related but separate group of Pokémon" from Legendary Pokémon. Mythical Pokémon are '''not''' a subset of Legendary Pokémon, but rather a related group.
:::::::Also note that the capitalization is important in "Legendary Pokémon" and "Mythical Pokémon." Legendary Pokémon can be featured in myths as well as legends, and Mythical Pokémon are sometimes the subject of legends (Arceus included). In that sense, "Legendary" Pokémon can be "mythical" and "Mythical" Pokémon can be "legendary." What ultimately defines a Pokémon as Mythical has to do with said Pokémon's exposure during regular gameplay, whether or not they are revealed with the rest of their generation, and whether they are necessary to complete the Pokédex.
:::::::If you'd like to know more, I'm currently working with another user to complete a draft for the Mythical Pokémon article [http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/User:Ash_Pokemaster/Mythical_Pok%C3%A9mon], which we'll present to senior members of the wiki for approval along with a new Legendary Pokémon article.
