    I have Sceptile use false swipe until the legendary's health bars in red then I use a sleep move, and throw Ultra balls at it.

    I get a pokemon that knows false swipe and another pokemon that knows Thunder Wave or Hypnosis/Sleep powder. Then use Ultra balls and Timer balls.

    save + quick ball, if this goes on too long I use false swipe and status ailments. Simple as that :)

    I simply save, make sure my first party pokemon is strong enough to go against the legendary and then apply a status problem to the pokemon I'm trying to catch. Once its weak enough, I just start throughing poke balls. XD I do the same things for normal pokemon as well.

    use different ball each time you toss them IF you aren't using master ball.

    also sleep is useful. so does paralysis. never ever use poison, confuse and burn status! so does spite.

    always have a healer in your team. recovery in case hp is low. setting up walls will be good too.

    different ways i catch legends are, false swipe, master ball, sleep powder, give it a status, get lucky and catch it with a pokeball.

    for those of you who evidently fell asleep during the tutorial at the beginning of EVERY GAME you catch them the same as any other pokemon; weaken it, throw a ball at it, and cross your fingers.
    wash. rinse. repeat.

    I use False Swipe to get them down to 1 HP and then put them to sleep. I start throwing Balls after that, especially Timer Balls as the battles goes on, which helped me catch many of the legendaries.

    I never really bothered with a Pokémon designed for catching others in Gen III. Instead, I used my Sceptile's False Swipe and my Manectric's Thunder Wave, occasionally resorting to my Gardevoir's Hypnosis.

    I use weak moves, and then Hypnosis, and hope for the best.
     
  15. This is really cheap but what I did was have two Gen III games (e.i. Ruby and Saphire) and just use one to trade master balls to the other game. Then use them to catch EVERYTHING (legendaries mind you). But if I can't use that meathod, I do this: I don;t have a pokemon with false swioe so I just use a super-effective move ( I am awesome with type advantages) Then not effective moves until the HP is in the red then try status moves and throw Ultra/Timer Balls until it is caught. I tend to buy things in bulk.

    Chuck at Master Ball at them.

    If I don't have one, then I just weaken the legendary down to red health, paralyze it (because it doesn't wear off as easily as sleep), toss an Ultra Ball, and pray.

    Before I do anything, I save in front of them. I get their health to red, inflict sleep/paralysis, then throw multiple ultra and time balls at it.
