This has been mentioned before, but I didn't find a thread for it. So, say like in the PMD series in black and white on your first encounter with the legendaries you weren't able to catch them. The first time would just be for stopping them from unleashing their fury, and the second time (after beating the pokemon league) you could catch them. Would you be in favor of something like this?

I think you should be able to catch some legendarys on first encounter, theones that do not matter to the balance of nature.
Eg: heatran, mewtwo,deoxys.

But the ones like the dragon trio shouldent be caught. how would a monster that can control time itself be captured in a tiny little ball?

Hmm, makes since. Say the 3 new trio that they make could be the ones you catch and you use them to catch Zekrom or Reshiram after the pokemon league?

it would make sense if you have to defeat them first for the story mode and then after the Pokemon league you get the chance to catch them.
Then again, I am one that I don't use legendaries, I just catch them and deposit them on the PC for pokedex porpuses.

I think it's a good idea, I never use legendaries at league anyway, but it would make the game harder to those who use.

I say its a good idea.

This could of been applied to R/S/E & D/P/Pt.

All the main legendarys of the games had a point where they wanted to cause trouble.

R/S - Where the legendary was in that one city with the water gym. Perfect chance to have a fight with it there. Then after the fight you can find it in some cave.
E - The same thing, except when there both out, its a double battle. The rain/sun both change over every turn. Then when they faint, the scene with rayquaza happens, and everything is at peace.
D/P/Pt - Fight against the legendary at the top of the mountain, then after you get the 8th gym badge you can go back and get it at the top of the mountain.

I have an idea that they will do this. The closest thing we've got was Cresillia and Mespirt.

Good ideas. They could also pull a fast one on us and be like ''since Zekrom and Reshiram are yin/yang if one vanishes the balance will be disrupted..meaning you can't catch them until you obtain a certain object." o_o

I like the idea of a 'teaser legendary'; it appears in Black & White and you can then catch it in the sequel (assuming there is one). To elaborate, the legendary appears about a quarter-way in through the game and the main plot starts from there (eg; destroying the world or something), then it appears two more times and the huge climax leading up to the sequel is formed. Then in Grey, you continue the 'chase' and eventually catch it. I'd buy all the games if this were to happen.

I'd like legendaries to be caught only after the E4s too, with one or two being obtainable before that, so I won't vote there! :P

Kinda like in Emerald when you have to stop Groudon and kyorge's epic battle? (Groudon would have won). You have to go find Rayquazza but you don't catch him there but instead he flies off to whoop some hyper beam down on the other two's asses? Yeah I wouldn't mind it.

This discussion can kind of be covered in the existing Legendary Discussion Thread (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=220265). Please continue it there.
