'''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), although the terms have at times overlapped and used interchangeably; 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'''.
