    No, I try not to because that would be reductive imo. The obvious exception being in Black and White where we're forced to use Reshiram/Zekrom to beat N and Ghetsis.

    Depends. Do I like the legendary?

    My first game, Diamond, I ended up keeping Dialga on my team. Why? Because he's one of (relatively) few pokemon I like. It did feel a little like cheating but at the same time...He was still fair game.

    In SoulSilver, I kept Lugia on my team, more as back up so I didn't have to train up pokemon I didn't like. I already had Typhlosian, Nidoking, and Pidgeot as my main three, and there weren't many others I liked. I was saving using Umbreon for Black 2 - I didn't want to get bored of using him in SS. So Lugia was sort of backup then.

    I definitely cheated in Black 2 though! I used Genesect right away. Even though he didn't even listen to me all the time because of his level, he still OHKOed a lot of pokemon until I could find ones I wanted to use (like Riolu and Growlithe). After that, he made a good backup member, simply because he started at level 15.

    And then I used Zekrom. I guess I replaced Genesect with him. He was mainly my flyer, and that's what I made Zekrom since I didn't really like Genesect, but I think Zekrom looks awesome. So Zekrom was sort of backup vsing the E4.

    Since there are only a handful of pokemon I like in each Gen (around 10-20), and a lot of times, I want to beat the game asap, I'll use the legendary, though usually just as backup and not the first member of my team.

    The only legendaries I have ever used on my team were Dialga on Diamond and Latias on Black/White 2. Dialga is the best legendary in my opinion, I absolutely love it
    I multiship a lot

    I never honestly use them in the handheld games I just mainly collect them in the handheld games, but sometimes on Pokemon Showdown I'll use them in battles.

    I don't use them in-game, bar Zekrom for that one battle. Sometimes I use them competitively, but only if they balance out weak Pokemon on my team

    i use rayquaza because of all the types of moves he can learn, making it my " trump card", so to speak.

    Yes, I usually do use legendaries. It makes the game easier for me when I get near the end and things start getting tough. I don't battle competitively, so there's no situation I'm in where they're banned. And besides, they tend to be cool-looking.

    no, usually when i restart games now, i use pokemon that i wouldn't normally think of using to make new bonds with that species.
    PM me if you want to battle! i'm always looking for a good battle!

    Yep. If I like the Pokemon, I use it regardless of stats. In fact, two of my favorites are legendaries.
    even if we don't understand each other, that's not a reason to reject each other. There are two sides to any argument. Is there one point of view that has all the answers? Give it some thought.
    ^ This is the reason why I like arguing. If I come off as standoffish or overly angry in an argument, don't worry. I'm probably having the time of my life. Whether I agree with them or not, the pokemon fandom has a lot of different opinions, and I love how nobody is afraid to share them.

    Officially:

    Groudon and Rayquaza from Ruby—both are Lv. 100 all-stars
    Entei, Raikou, Suicune in Colosseum
    Victini in White-1—another all-star
    Keldeo in White-2 postgame (later halted)
    Probably Moltres in a current Leaf Green run.

    Pretty much everything else ever was boxed.

    Nope-I wish the legendary battles were more challenging and enjoyable though.

    I personally prefer the satisfaction of sweeping my opponent's team with a pichu, rather than picking up a cheap victory with a Lugia: it doesn't feel as deserved as the latter,and just makes enemies of opponents.

    The ubers tier reamins enjoyable, however.Raw power vs raw power-what's to hate?

    @Macklin-Giratina's easily one of the best legendaries out there!

    Yeah I ev train them and use them for fun. Maybe if somebody wants to have a Uber battle I will use them. I always use Terrakion and most trio legends though.
