    Do your or do you not? I tend to refrain from using Legendaries as much as possible, it feels like cheating.

    From time to time yes, I don't see it as cheating in any form so it doesn't bother me, although I'm not that interested in using many, I'll tend to use the mascot at less though, for story purpose.

    Shaymin in Pearl, Raquaza in Emerald, Ho-Oh in Gold with the occassional MewTwo, none in Red. They're never there because they're strong, it's just 'cause I adore them. I tend to mainly use my starter, Pikachu, and Eevee (if available in that specifuc game).

    I use also legendary Pokémons, but I play it only on PMD 2 & 3 (Sky), so for other games... no Pokémon at all.
    I don't see it as cheating also... why arguing about it while it isn't cheating at all?

    I use Mew the most of my all other ones that I have... some say that this one can recruit Kecleon very fast and easy.
    Map surveyor and Stair locator (or something) will make everything easier... one of the reason that I've never fainted in sky version of PMD :D

    I dont because I prefer training my pokemon instead of using something that is strong when you catch it. Thhat bieng said when I do tournaments and Clan Wars over PO, I will occasionally have one of the Latis on my team.

    Excitable Boy is a metaphor

    In-game, I may. They're generally annoying to catch, though, so if I do, I'll usually just Master Ball 'em and be done with it. If catching them was cheating, the game wouldn't let you do it.

    Competitively, usually.

    They look more awful caught on masterball, than how they alredy are. everytime someone shows off a legendary the first thing i notice, its the masterball, and when i do, i also notice they're low effort for catching it, so i have to cancel right away.. its just cheap(lazy). not to mention, most hacked pokemon are caught with masterball.. Eww.

    The only time I used a legendary in my team was in Diamond.
    Mesprit is badass <3

    And I am waiting for them to release Meloetta, because I plan to use it in B2 or W2.

    I don't like using them because most of them are too strong for in-game purposes.
    Mesprit and Meloetta aren't that strong ^^

    1. Cool story bro, tell it again.
    2. You don't, apparently.
    3. Not really, compared to other pokemon.
    4. I didn't really mean tell it again...
    5. Many people in this thread say they don't use them.
    6. They're just kids.
    7. There's a valid reason.
    8. Let's take a look at something like Terrakion. 'Non-competitive' my ***.

    Wow you gave eight "points" and still managed to miss the topic of this thread.

    And for me personally, I don't use them.

    I do in game but never on my final team or against other actual players, not that I battle other people that often. I'm also of the opinion that legendaries should be agreed on to be used or avoided before a battle. If I suddenly came across a Lugia without warning I'd be upset that I built a team without legendaries but my opponent gets an edge for using one. A bit irrational I admit but there ya go.

    4.tell you what? oh, you wanna hear a story.. i forgot.
    5.i know that, son.
    6.including yourself.
    7.no.
    8.terrakion is only one of those few unbanned OU legendaries that nobody needs, exept those like you who suck and must use them at all cost in order to stand a chance.

    And no, i gave those eight "points" cause i want it to, didn't miss the topic, buddy..

    In Game, I don't use any, I tend to use the pokemon I like.
    For competitvely, I use Lati@s, Rachi, Musketeers, and Kami Trio.

    It depends entirely on the Pokemon. I think generalizing legendaries and non-legendaries is a poor idea, given that all kinds of non-legendary Pokemon (Excadrill, Garchomp, Tyranitar, Conkeldurr, Salamence, etc.) can absolutely outperform a vast majority of legendary Pokemon. I often use Pokemon like Azelf, Jirachi, Regice, Manaphy, Latios, Heatran and the like in both in-game and competitive battling teams, because their abilities aren't necessary above and beyond that of normal Pokemon.

    I think people who condemn the use of legendaries and then have a team of Garchomp/Salamence/Tyranitar/etc. have immense double-standard issues. If I think a Pokemon is too powerful for me to be challenged when I use it, I won't use it. Doesn't matter if it's legendary or not.
