Sweep the Elite Four and then put them in the PC for the Battle Frontier. I don't do much competitive gameplay with my actual teams so I don't ever train my legendaries

Normally I just make them faint if I have to battle them. If it's a legendary that I need to capture, then it'll get boxed the second that I'm able to do so. There are some kinda cool legendaries in the Poke-world, but I'm not a big fan of using them myself. A lifetime of locked-up solitude inside a computer sounds all right by me! :D

Regular legendaries, with exception of Zekrom against N and a Rayquaza against Emerald's Elite Four, are boxed. I usually deem it unfair to use the equivalent of demigods in a Pokémon battle, especially against the Elite Four.

Event legendaries, being a one-time thing, are boxed as well, as I see them more as collectables than usable Pokémon.

I usually disregard most legendaries, with the exception of keeping the game's main legendary (Groudon, Rayquaza, Dialga, Giratina etc.) in my in-game team. Unfortunately, I managed to have a hugely underlevelled team in my recent first run through of B2 so I used all of the Swords of Justice (using Cobalion to the point were he was ten levels above everything else) to complete the Pokemon League.

Any events I get usually get in my team until I get bored of them as well. The recent Lv.100 Deoxys might not find a use for me though.

They retire from battling the moment I catch them and sit in the box until the end of time!

I don't think Latias/Latios are banned from 3rd Gen Battle Facilities such as Mt. Battle or the Battle tower in R/S, right? My favourite legendaries to use are Latias and Kyogre, as well as the legendary dogs in Colosseum, since they are available throughout the story. Moltres is nice too. The others get boxed O.o

I also used to use them, now they just gather dust in my box. Most have never been used in a battle. I did take 1 Mew to lvl 100 though, as Mew is my favorite legendary.

Keep them all in the box to be honest.

Well, actually my first time i completed Black 2 i caught every one of them available then carried Latios around with me for fly and to help beat the elite four to help train up my lower leveled pokemon.

I just don't see any use for the likes of Cresselia, Terrakion etc.

To me, it depends on the Legendary/Legendaries in question. If it is a Legendary that I like (i.e. mainly Psychic, with Dragon and Fire also), then there is a good chance that it will become a permanent part of my team. Any others, will most likely get boxed.

I usually just store them in PC. Personally I don't like using legendaries.

I think almost everyone here agrees that they catch legendaries just to have them gather dust in their boxes.

And I do the same. Personally I find using legendaries is a cheap way to dominate the opposition. I prefer a slight challenge against the NPCs, at least. The only time I consider using them is for the Medal Rally in Black 2, in which I used Latios and Kyurem for the Dragon-type Champ medal.
