I always have at least one legendary Pokémon in my team.
Not because they are uber powered or something but because I like them =)

When I was younger, first two Generations, I always would love to fill my party as a party of 6 Legendaries. Mewtwo, Lugia, Ho-Oh, Suicune, Zapdos & Articuno.

Now? I'd like to stick to the OU Tier mainly but I can't help to love & care for any/all/my Latias & Cresselias that I can get. Give me one, or even 50, I'll train them with full potential & box them up just to collect them. (Wither its the good nature or bad, though I only use the good ones for competitive play). So yeah..things has changed A LOT since my childhood years in the Pokemon World. But I'm proud of it!

Zapdos has among the best typings and appearances, but I generally already have something that flies and/or a Jolteon, and don't like any other legendary nearly as much... so no.

I really dislike having legendaries in my team. Indeed, when I had to have Reshiram in my Black team, it felt really unusual. That's not to say that I haven't done so in the past but... as I've gotten older, the appeal of legendaries has really worn thin. If I do end up catching some, they're normally box-bound for the rest of their lives, unfortunately.

I only use just one legendary, and it would be the legendary of my preference. That only applies to 1st gen and the remakes. I try not to use them in the future generations, but since the 1st gen, I've had the habit of grabbing one legendary so I can easily beat the E4 :(

Articuno is and will always be part of my Kanto team, no exceptions whatsoever. :P

I can use Raiku. But Ho-oh and Lugia are the best for Pokemon Gold.

I sometimes use legendaries depending on how bad it is. I only use legendaries that have balanced stats : such as the Legendary beasts, Regis. Even mew because I think it's pretty balanced.

Nowadays I use legendaries regularly as it's not that hard to train them and their power is something I simply cannot ignore lol, only time I don't use legendaries though is when they don't provide synergy for the rest of the team that I would be using.

I used to use my favourites up until the 3rd Gen maybe but then after that I felt guilty cause it made it kinda easy. Now I keep them in the box or use them in contests, or post-game

I cannot stand having legendaries on my team. I feel as if they should remain a legend instead of being coped up in a PC somewhere.

That being said they're dex-fillers in the ages because well they're not really going to do anything else constructive.

I've got to admit, I did use a Giratina on my first go at the E4. Back then, Platinum was my first game and I wasn't the brightest. My Pokemon only consisted of three - Empoleon,Luxray and Rapidash. So I brought in Giratina because without it, I'd of never made it.

Nowadays I'm a bit brighter and have a full balanced team so legendaries are just left to relax in my PC.

I always use the mascot of the game I'm playing. It's just something I do. But that's the only Legendary Pokemon I use. I limit myself to only 1 Legend per team.

When I was younger, I refused to use legendaries on my team because I felt it made the game too easy and partially because the few people around here that weren't afraid to admit they played Pokemon, would have entire teams of legendaries which I saw as complete laziness(I hate level grinding, but I took pride that I raised my pokemon from low levels).

Now that I'm older and more mature, I've restarted all of my games used the legendaries this time around half because the story pretty much gives it to you and half because I've learned that legendaries aren't invincible. For example, in Platinum I still struggled against the Elite Four even with my Giratina.

I still have a rule of only using one legendary on a team and I only use the "main" legendary.

I don't like using legendary's in my team but when I got to the Battle Tower I take 1 with me. Most of the time it's Articuno because of it's Mind Reader and Sheer Cold combo.

It honestly kind of bugs me to have a legendary in my team, so I generally don't unless I just feel like it. If I ever use a legendary, which is a hairline from never, I will use Mewtwo.

Legendarys arent invincible. Especially the lesser ones that have lower or equal stats then pseudo legends. I spent the time catching them, and i enjoy the design of most of them, so ill use them if i feel like it. Right now, i have keldeo, victini, and kyurem on my White team. I normally wont use a gen 4 legend, because i only really like Girantina out of all of those.

I don't, usually, just because ingame I tend to have 6 Pokemon when I get to the Legendary anyway. Also because wen I have a team of Pokemon I like to think of the trainer's story, and for some reason my mind thinks that getting a legendary would be unrealistic for the person. Lol. I'm not really sure why, I guess it's just a habit.

However, when I was a kid I played through Gold with my Quilava (unevolved) & my Ho-Oh, and used my Ampharos sometimes. :3 Obviously didn't have a problem there, haha.

yeah, I'm in the same boat as the OP

I used to train them to level 100 and stuff like that, and use them on my team all the time. Now I just leave them in my boxes (I think I stopped around the DPPt too haha) and yeah.
I might use one to help defeat the Pokemon League, but I'm not going to when I get BW2 because I want to try keep it be legend free

I think having legendaries in the team is alright but only for things like the elite four.

You can easily beat the elite four without legendaries.

If I catch a legendary, im going to use it. I usually have at least one on my team. Why catch them if you wont use them? Come on now.
