“The Website Previously Known as Legendary Pokémon.”


Also known as Legendary Pokémon, LegendaryPKMN was made in Greece and first launched on August 22th, 2001 as a hobby fansite. After multiple incarnations, LegendaryPKMN remains a welcome community for people interested on all things Pokémon and a credible news portal.

We are committed to quality content, original research and accuracy, and since the beginning we’ve only been reporting verifiable “facts” and information. If you enjoy sensational Pokémon Go headlines, lazy listicles, the latest rumors on alleged leaks and fancy memes, then we’re not what you’re looking for.

We want the public to understand that animé and video games in general, as high-tech works of intellect, and as contemporary media for quality entertainment. We also want to shed light on the communities that revolve around them and study how they provide ground for educated discussions, allow for artistic expression and foster honest relationships.

Once a hobby fansite about the Pokémon videogames, we became well known for our detailed Pokédex (an index of Pokémon and their game stats) and Individual Value calculator, and have provided several other fansites with the means to employ their own instances.

We’ve proudly collaborated with Nortec (the former distributor of Nintendo products in Greece and the Balkans) on many occasions, successfully running two Pokémon Championships via the internet, and two real-world tournaments on Super Smash Bros. for WiiU. Many knowledgeable persons in our community had also been selected for the regional Nintendo Ambassador promotions and Pokémon events.

We’ve been standing for 15 years because we’re “amateurs”, that is we literally love what we do. We thus take pride in being more professional than “professionals”, and will continue to do so for as long there are Pokéballs in our backpacks.

Sounds like something you want to be a part of? Then go ahead and write us about it at [email protected]. We’d love to hear from you.
