Trivia: reword
* In {{game2|Diamond|Pearl|Platinum}}, {{p|Dialga}} and {{p|Palkia}} are referred to as "mythical Pokémon" (Japanese: 神話のポケモン ''mythical Pokémon''). However, this predates the use of the term Mythical Pokémon in English and has a different Japanese name.
* [[Generation VIII]] is the only generation in which a new Mythical Pokémon was not present in the debut [[core series]] games' data at launch.
* [[Pokédex]] entries for {{p|Dratini}} state that Dratiniit was believed to be a mythical Pokémon until it was caught by a {{tc|fisher|fisherman}}.
* {{p|Lugia}} and {{p|Ho-Oh}} were treated similarly to Mythical Pokémon in the core [[Generation III]] games and Diamond, Pearl and Platinum. They cannot be obtained through normal gameplay in these games, nor are they required to complete any Pokédex. Lugia and Ho-Oh have been treated the same as other [[Legendary Pokémon]] in all games starting with {{g|HeartGold and SoulSilver}}.
