• Hi all
    Just a notice, we recently discovered that someone got into a moderator account and started hard deleting a load of key and legacy threads...around 150 threads have been lost dating back to 2007 and some weeks ago so we can't roll the forums back.
    Luckily no personal data could be accessed by this moderator, and we've altered the permissions so hard deleting isn't possible in the future
    Sorry for any inconvenience with this and sorry for any lost posts.

Do you really use your legendaries?


Veteran Member
Do you really use them or you just catch them and put them in a box without use, or maybe you train them because you want a Lugia lv.100 but once it is done you never use it again.

Post what you do with the legendary pokemon here


Not really. I used a palkia/ dialga team battle in the restaurant in d/p for like 5 seconds I stopped because it got boring and I felt kinda bad fighting lv 20 Roselias with the rulers of time and space

No, I don't; I find them cheap. The only reason I capture legendaries is to add their data to my Pokédex.

I use the main legendary till beating the League for the first time, but after that I just put it back in the last box with all the other legendaries, since Platinum I like having a normal team.


Well-Known Member
i think they are cool, personally i dont use them a huge them a huge amount but i do use the occasional one of the trios from each game ie, regirock or articuno

Most of the time, Legendaries don't have ultimate coverage movesets. I do use pseudo-legendaries though.

Nothing wrong with that, I think most people probably use at least one pseudo-legendary on their team. I think since R/S/E, the only time I've used a legendary in-game was Zekrom against N and Ghetsis in White, just for the ultimate showdown between Reshiram and Zekrom. I don't know why I've gotten into that habit though, I guess the "uber" thought has crossed from competitive to in-game somehow..

The only mons i've actually used are: Cresselia, Manaphy, Victiny and Tornadus. Apart from that, no, I never use legends :p


Veteran Member
I have only use Rayquaza, Latias, Palkia, Giratina, Lugia, Zekrom but all of them except Latias and Giratina for a short time

I never use legendaries on my standard ingame team. Sometimes I do like to get out a team of 6 legendaries and demolish the E4 for fun, though =)


I sometimes use some to help beat the elite four, but other than that no because they are too overpowered.

I like legendaries, and I'm not ashamed to say they have a place in my team. I think legendaries are a crucial part of pokemon and that's a shame to waste.

I don't use kyurem, however. But that's purely because I don't like it.


I usually catch them, train them up, and use the heck out of them like any other pokemon I like. Doubley so if I SR a shiny one.


Pokemon Collector
Nope, I keep em as trophies.

Although I felt obligated to use Reshiram against N's Zekrom....
