'''Mythical Pokémon''' (Japanese: '''{{tt|幻|まぼろし}}のポケモン''' ''Illusory Pokémon'') are a group of {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} seen so rarely in the [[Pokémon world]] that some question their very existence. These are {{pkmn2|event}}-exclusive Pokémon that, with few exceptions, cannot be obtained during normal gameplay.<ref>[https://web.archive.org/web/20141019114239/http://www.pokemon.co.jp/ex/pokescrap2014/pokemon もらえるプレゼントを詳しく紹介|ポケモンスクラップ オメガルビー・アルファサファイア 幻のポケモンたちをもらおう! キャンペーン] (Japanese, archive)</ref>
In Japanese media, Mythical Pokémon and [[Legendary Pokémon]] have always been presented as distinct groups. In non-Japanese media prior to Generation V, Mythical Pokémon and Legendary Pokémon were both considered to be Legendary Pokémon (and the term Mythical Pokémon was unused); since Generation V, the two groups are presented as distinct groups in all official media. In [[Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs]], Mythical Pokémon are referred to as '''rare Pokémon'''. However, Mythical isPokémon are also considered a sub-class of Legendary Pokémon.
