Legendary Pokémon: Upon re-reading, this sentence was unclear. Sorry.
* ''Can be shiny/have different IVs'': Pure game mechanics, thus not valid proof. (See also: the contradiction between Pokédex entries saying Escavalier is fast and its actual Speed stat being abysmal. My point is, you can talk about lore or you can talk about game mechanics, but you can't use one as proof for the other.)
* ''Pokédex says some can breed'': Latias' Emerald entry is the only one I can find that directly states anything about any Legendary species being either unique or non-unique. (In this case, it says Latias group together in herds of several members.) I can't find any reference to breeding in a Legendary's Pokédex entries, though I didn't check Mythicals. In any case, the vast majority of Legendaries, especially in early generations, have entries that seem to strongly imply they are, in fact, unique.
My reasoning for insisting on the sentence being in the anime section was because I thought there was no proof one way or the other in the games, so claiming ANYthing would be speculation. Now that I've found thatLatias' Pokédex entry, I'll rephrase itthe sentence to fit the evidence. Please revise it ''with a specifically cited source'' if you find more canonical instances one way or the other, but otherwise, please do not make any new generalizations.
