Legendary & Mythical Pokémon Battle Royale is the second battle simulation collaborated by Jeremy Chinshue and Lockstin from Gnoggin. In a simulation of planet Earth, all Legendary and Mythical Pokémon are sent out to see which one would be victorious.

You can watch the video here, and Lockstin's commentary here.

For a battle royale featuring all other Pokémon, see Pokemon Battle Royale.

  • Adaptational Badass: In the legendary battle royal analysis, Lockstin explains that they also decided to interpret vaguely worded entries to their most logical extreme, like Lunala being able to control the moon to perform a Colony Drop and Yveltal's "Instant Death" Radius affecting the entire world.

  • Agony of the Feet: Kyurem-Black after stepping on Keldeo's horn.
  • All for Nothing: Ho-oh revives the Legendary Beasts after they're felled, but then all four of them get cooked by Mewtwo's Psychic, Ho-oh turning into a photo-realistic rotisserie chicken.
  • Ash Face: Mewtwo, after he gets zapped by Zeraora for dodging his attacks. Mewtwo does not take kindly to this.
  • Apocalypse How: A Class 6 when Yveltal gets killed. The devastation of the whole fight gets bad enough that the simulation increasingly struggles to process it, until Ultra Necrozma goes up against Arceus at the edge of the universe and blue-screens the whole system.
  • The Assimilator:
    • Kyurem ambushes Zekrom to absorb it and become Black Kyurem.
    • Taken Up to Eleven with Necrozma. Not only does it absorb Lunala to become Dawn Wings Necrozma, it absorbs Victini's power beforehand and Solgaleo thereafter to become Ultra Necrozma. One possible outcome even has it absorb Arceus, giving it a new (non-canon) form as the result.

  • Badass Boast: From Registeel:
    Registeel: (upon going up against Tapu Lele) Defiant statement: There is nothing you can do to me! Do. Your worst.
    Registeel: (proceeds to No-Sell Tapu Lele's Moonblast) Revolting.
  • Bait-and-Switch: Regarding how U-Necrozma breaks out of being frozen in time:
    Dialga: Chaos Control! (freezes time)
    (Celebi flies into time stream and looks curiously at Necrozma)
    Dialga: (sighs)
    (Ultra Necrozma begins to break out of the frozen time, blowing up Celebi in the process)
  • Beam Spam: Zygarde-100% tries this on Mewtwo. Keyword being tries.
  • Brick Joke: In the first episode, a Pikachu is seen falling to its death as soon as the video begins, along with all the other Poké Balls. Here, that same Pikachu is also seen falling onto the planet, but then explodes due to being in the vacuum of space.

  • Colony Drop: Lunala spams dropping the moon onto the entire island.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Kyurem kicks the other two dragons' asses quite well, but then is taken out by stepping on Keldeo.
  • Deep Sleep: While the moon is bouncing all over the Earth, Jirachi is shown in the middle of its thousand-year sleep. The commotion disturbs it, but after checking the clock, it goes back to sleep.
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: Ultra Necrozma is responsible for killing Dialga, Palkia, and in one of the timelines, Arceus.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Palkia is not pleased by Hoopa doing his thing by utilizing Teleport Spam with his rings. So when Hoopa gets too close, Palkia kills him mid-warp by slicing him in half with Spacial Rend, the other half falling out of the other end of the ring.
  • Funny Background Event:
  • Fun with Subtitles: There is one read aloud by a Synthetic Voice Actor that translates Keldeo's short cry into an elaboration on how it'll slay Kyurem.
    Keldeo: [screaming] (You will suffer the pain of a thousand deaths by my sword.)
  • Half the Man He Used to Be: Palkia chops Hoopa while it's halfway through its loop, causing its other half to fall out of the other side.
  • Life Drain: Invoked by Necrozma, who activates Yveltal's Resurrective Immortality to drain the life force of all its competitors on Earth.
  • Lunacy: Parodied. As "the beast that calls the moon", Lunala uses the Moon from Majora's Mask to hit Earth repeatedly.
  • Man on Fire: A variant involving a Pokémon. As Groudon attacks, Tapu Lele catches fire just from being near the Solar Beam it shoots out.
  • Metronomic Man Mashing: Kyurem pulls this on Zekrom, then absorbs him, turning into Kyurem-Black (with the "full heal" sound effect from Super Paper Mario as well).
  • Multiple Endings: Necrozma's victory over Dialga and Palkia, the only things that can stabilize the space-time continuum, causes reality to glitch. By the time it reaches Arceus, the universe splits into two, one where Necrozma wins by absorbing Arceus and transforming into a new form and another where Arceus wins after restraining the Prism Pokémon with one of its many arms and snapping it out of existence.
  • No-Sell: Tapu Lele's attack bounces off of Registeel.
    • Regigigas effortlessly catches the moon and tosses it back into space.
      Regigigas: (Watching as the moon hurtles towards him) My body is ready.
  • Off with His Head!: Black Kyurem Ice Beams Reshiram by the neck, which causes its head to then slide off.
  • Oh, Crap!:
    • Groudon's reaction to his old rival appearing:
      Groudon: [screaming] [gets flushed down toilet, representing getting hit by Surf]
    • Also Lugia's reaction when Rayquaza deals with the storm it causes.
    • As well as Solgaleo's upon being spotted by Dawn Wings Necrozma.
      Solgaleo: Oh no.
    • And Dialga, who can only gasp in horror when Ultra Necrozma resists being frozen in time.
  • Olympus Mons: This battle royale is made up of all legendary and mythical Pokémon. Pikachu is the only exception, and is the first one eliminated as the result.
  • Ominous Visual Glitch: Happens a few times in the video, starting with the moon controlled by Lunala bashing it onto the Earth several times. Becomes much more prominent as Ultra Necrozma absorbs the sun and finishes off Dialga and Palkia. Then it flies towards Arceus, where the glitchy element gets worse. The screen eventually splits into two to showcase two different endings.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: In the Legendary battle royal, Lunala, Groudon, and Lugia turn the planet into a smoldering wasteland with the moon constantly beating down on it, while Yveltal ended up wiping out all life on earth with its "Instant Death" Radius.
  • Readings Are Off the Scale: The video ends with Ultra Necrozma picking a fight with Arceus, and culminates in the simulation's reality dividing in two and creating two universes where either won before melting down completely.
  • Resurrective Immortality: Yveltal undergoes one as it's exploited by Necrozma. Necrozma shoots Yveltal by its vitals and leaves immediately as Yveltal sucks the life force of other Pokémon in the process while entering its cocoon phase.
  • Rule of Three: This moment from Entei:
    Entei: Ba.
    [volcano erupts]
    Entei: Ha ba ba.
    [second volcano erupts]
    Entei: Hakababa ba ba.
    [third volcano erupts]
  • Running Gag: Lugia clapping his hands and summoning forty day storms, as well as the moon bouncing around the planet thanks to Lunala.
  • Screams Like a Little Girl:
    • Zygarde when Hoopa steals one of its cells to bring it out of its Complete Form.
    • As well as Groudon when he sees Kyogre's wave approaching
  • Serial Escalation: The first battle royal had an island being the battlefield, with the only two cases of mass destruction being due to Magcargo and Gardevoir. The Legendary battle royal begins with an entire planet, with a lot more mass destruction due to the likes of Lunala, Groudon, and Lugia, and once the planet becomes an uninhabited mess due to Yveltal's death, it quickly escalates to a universal scale, then, during the finale between Ultra Necrozma and Arceus, it crashes the computer running the simulation.
  • Single-Stroke Battle: Ranged variant. Upon absorbing Zekrom, Kyurem shoots an Ice Beam at Reshiram's neck. Its head then slowly slides off.
  • Spanner in the Works: Hoopa sabotages the power of Zygarde Complete by taking away a single cell/core.
  • Synthetic Voice Actor: There is one that voices over the subtitles translating Keldeo's cry.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: When one of Zygarde's cells is removed by Hoopa, it's quickly reduced to 4 10% Zygardes, 9 cells and cores, and one 50% Zygarde floundering on the ground.
  • The Worf Effect: Mewtwo telekinetically crushes Heatran as soon as he's sent out.

How well does it match the trope?
