    Default Hardest legendary to catch in 2nd gen?

    Just curious about your guys' opinions on the most annoyingly hard legendary Pokemon to catch in the second generation.

    Personally, I had trouble with Ho-oh, but that was personally me.

    NOTE!: Please don't mention the roaming legendaries. Those are universally hard, without the Master Ball, that is. I'm only talking about the interactive legendaries, the ones you have to go up and "talk to".

    Thanks~

    Personally, I never found any of the interactive legendaries hard to catch.

    That's what I thought. Except with some infernal annoyance with Ho-oh in the remake, but that doesn't count.

    I guess Lugia or Ho-Oh were the hardest as they knew Recover, which could make them a pain to catch if they kept restoring their HP. But there isn't really a choice as they together with Suicune in Crystal are the only non-roaming legendaries. As for Suicune, I always found it easier since it didn't know Recover.

    All of them were easy to catch but Lugia is quite hard since it took me 50 Ultra balls to catch it

    Depends whether you use Heavy balls on Lugia/Ho-oh or not. If you do, then it's Crystal Suicune, otherwise, Lugia and Ho-oh are tougher.

    Lugia was fairly easy. But Ho-oh and the 3 dogs, it was a pain to catch those.

    The Legendary Beasts hands down.

    Guess Ho-oh was hard for me to catch. I remember using my Master Ball on Lugia, so Ho-oh was the hardest for me. (Didn't help I had Silver version.)

    Entie was the hardest legendary Pokemon to catch for me. It took me like 35 ultra balls to catch it.

    Lugia. I've caught it maybe...4 or 5 times now in my Silver, every single time it's brutally hard.

    The only one I had trouble with was Lugia. I didn't even want him, poor 'little kid' me really wanted to buy Gold, but they ran out in the shop on the first day. So blood, sweat and tears went into catching the legendary that I hate the most. But I wanted to be able to power through the rest of the game and he was the only answer. ;_; I spent HOURS trying to catch that fool, I think it even took me more than a day. But I wasn't the best at Pokemon then so I was probably just throwing balls at it with full health. Skills. I had dem.

    Well second gen only had like 5 legends. The dogs were all irritating. Ho-oh on Silver was quite the annoyance too because of Sunny Day and Sacred Fire that could wipe out your entire team. Lugia wasn't bad because he just isn't that dangerous.

    I'm gonna say Ho-oh. It's really painful to catch.

    I cloned my master ball several times so nothing was hard to catch.

    However, before I did this I found Ho-oh very difficult.

    Ho-Oh was tough to catch in Silver version. I think I used like 30 Ultra Balls during that encounter. The Beasts are also hard to catch, but that goes without saying.

    I'd say Entei/Raikou. Just finding them was hard enough when I was a kid..

    Lugia. I believe it took me many attempts over the course of several weeks to catch it on Gold. My best friend even had trouble catching it on her Silver. There were several occasions when we were at her house trying to catch it on our games and ended up failing each time. Needless to say, I was soooo glad when I finally caught it.
