Two Pokemon get V-Create: victini- a Pokemon with a v on it’s head, and rayquaza: no explanation. Why?

Rayquaza has a V on its head. It makes perfect sense.
Yes, and Mega Rayquaza's V is longer than Rayquaza
Yes, but those are more head-fins than Vs.

V-Create Rayquaza is actually an interesting story. According to Serebii's Eventdex, it was only released once in Japan back in 2012 in response to a popularity poll. After digging for a bit, I found an article written at the time when the poll's results, and the Rayquaza, were announced by TPC. I guess as a reward for topping the charts, they decided it would be cool if they distributed a Rayquaza that came with the highest base-power move in the game other than Self-Destruct and Explosion (and now Z-Moves, but they weren't a thing back then).

My favorite Rayquaza event in Nobunaga's Shiny Rayquaza in B/W. The only problem is that it was only released in Japan.
