PMD Adventure log on Unown trivia
Also, do not add Poison being the only type without a legendary Pokémon, there is also no Bug type legendary Pokémon, since Genesect is now a mythical Pokémon.-->
* Though {{p|Unown}} is not considered to be a Legendary Pokémon, in ''[[M03|Spell of the Unown: Entei]]'', it is shown in [[Molly Hale]]'s book about Legendary Pokémon. Its power (in large numbers, at least) appears to match that of Legendary Pokémon, and within the canon of the movie it is specifically referred to as a Legendary Pokémon.
** In [[Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness|Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time, Darkness]] [[Explorers of Sky|and Sky]], the [[Adventure Log]] lists recruiting Unown as an accomplishment. The Adventure Log otherwise only list mythical and legendary recruits, with the exception of [[Rotom]].
* {{p|Heatran}} is the only Legendary Pokémon that can be either gender.
* According to interviews with [[Junichi Masuda]] in 2009, Legendary Pokémon are the most difficult to design names for because Game Freak strives to make sure that the names of Legendary Pokémon are universal across the different translations, so extra work must be put into their names to make sure that they work universally in all languages and don't conflict with anything else. This is consistent with the relatively small number of Legendary Pokémon that have had their names changed significantly outside of Japan (currently 16: the [[Legendary birds]], the [[lake guardians]], the [[Forces of Nature]], {{p|Silvally}}, the [[guardian deities]], and in [[Pokémon in Greater China|Chinese]] only, the [[Mew duo]]).
