Arcanine is it legendary?
Yes and No.
Arcanine was originally created as a legendary pokemon, but he was replaced by Moltres. This is why he is still categorized as 'Legendary' in the generation 1 pokedex. Because this was never fixed, Arcanine's species is 'Legendary'. This doesn't mean Arcanine is a legendary species but it's species is. Like Pikachu's species is mouse, Arcanine's species is Legendary.
But Arcanine is one of the strongest non legendary pokemon. His base stats are 555, and there is only one pokemon with higher base stats who isn't a legendary pokemon.
Raikou, Entei, and Suicune are the legendary dogs. Some consider Arcanine a legendary dog, but he is not part of the trio. the reason for this is that in an early episode, Arcanine was in the middle of a slate surrounded by Moltres, Articuno, and Zapdos. After the episode, it was decided that Arcanine was NOT a legendary dog.
One opinion believes that contrary to popular belief that yes Arcanine is in fact a legendary Pokémon. It's true that Arcanine's species is "Legendary Pokémon" but that is not the only reason he is legendary such as for example an in-game Poké Dex entry states "A legendary Pokémon in China. Many people are charmed by its grace and beauty while running" and "This legendary Chinese Pokémon is considered magnificent. Many people are enchanted by its…
It was once thought to be legendary, but then it was pronounced not to be. It is rare though, because you can only get growlithe on certain games like FireRed and HeartGold. You can't get Arcanine directly, it has to be evolved using a firestone on Growlithe. You can't get Growlithe on Emerald, LeafGreen, Diamond, Pearl, Platinum or SoulSilver.

He sort of rarebut definitely not legendary because he evolves from a Vulpix. Hope this answered your question. Its still being debated because ninetales has some legendary characteristics like they can live for 1000 years, can put curses on whoever touches its tails forcibly and can control the body of someone so many reasons it can be considered legendary not particularly rare though. i hope this answered your question So basically its up to you…
Togekiss is a normal and flying type, it is the third most powerful non legendary/ psuedo legendary in terms of stats (behind Arcanine and Slaking) more info below http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Togekiss_(Pok%C3%A9mon) http://www.smogon.com/dp/pokemon/togekiss http://pokemon.marriland.com/diamond_pearl/pokedex/togekiss
Well they are different because Arcanine is just fire while Charizard is fire AND flying. Arcanine has good Attack and Special Attack. Charizard is good too. I personally like Arcanine better. Usually its Attack is better, so it can learn good physical moves and I'm pretty sure Arcanine can learn some rock type moves to take out Charizard.
