I was training my Scyther and then WHAM! A Suicune appeared. It took me a half hour to catch it(On gold). My first gen three legend was Groudon.

How did you keep it in battle for that long without it running? :O

My first gen 3 legendary was Moltres in FireRed. I just really liked Fire types as a kid. My first R/S/E legendary was Kyogre, since I had Sapphire first. I soon bought all three of the games.

the first one in third gen was Kygore as I was playing Sapphire as my Hoenn game. In Firered it probably was Mewtwo.

Ruby being my first game ever means that Groudon was my first legendary.
That's also why it's got a special place in my heart - i might have liked it less if not for this criteria. :3

Ruby was my first Gen III game, I caught Groudon and it really trampled the opposition! The drought + solarbeam combo, eruption at full health were my Groudon's main attacks.

The first legendary pokemon was Kyogre for me, since I was playing Sapphire. It had a good array of attacks, and seemed to be quite effective against the Elite 4.

Next project: Pokemon Dark Nebula?

The first generation three legend I caught was Rayquaza. I had made Groudon faint from poison, so I couldn't catch him in Ruby.
Together we should be able to do anything. Because you've been my best friend since the beginning.

My first legendary was a Zapdos in FireRed.
I did not catch any legedaries in Red even though I remember going to the Power Plant and the Cerulean Cave.

In Ruby my first legendary was Groudon.

Am.. my first Legendary was Zapdos in Leaf green, And leaf green is my first Pokemon game i had played. well it was toooooooooooo hard to Catch it And cause of its my first Legendary and for ti design and spiky Feather it become my favorite Legendary. First i was just searching in the Power plant ( i doesn't knew that Zap can find there i just went there to find what really is the Power Plant) then it was little confusing to find Zapdos cause there are little confusing ways in Power plant i catch Pikachu, Magnemit there as normal Pokemon, Then i see a Pokeball there i went near to it and clicked the "A" Button and a Voltorb came to fight but Unfortunately i only had 30 ultra balls left, no Pokeball i thought maybe here can be a new and some rare Pokemon so i better save the Ultra balls for it, So i run from it then finally i reach to Zapdos the battle began i choose Arcaine and used some hot Moves on it after it health reach yellow color i started using Ultraballs on the Zapdos but no no no no not a single chance i saw to caught it. But after i lose my 27 or 28 balls suddenly the Zapdos was catch by the Ultra ball NO. 29 ! interesting right ? ha ha ha

My very first game was firered. I (stupidly) used my masterball to capture Zapdos. I never could catch the other ones. I was only 6 years old at the time if that compensates for something. To be honest I still love zapdos to this day but he seems like a total waste of master ball. DONT USE IT ON ZAPDOS!!! not worth it. Use it on something like Mewtwo or a roaming pokemon like entei.

None. xD I never really caught a legendary, I only encountered them. Not because I hated them, no, but it was because I always failed to catch them. The only legendary I encountered was Groudon on Ruby, but I failed to catch him after so many times with his health on the red so I just beat him instead. I was so close to encountering (maybe even catching!) Rayquaza (on Emerald) but I was stuck on the stupid puzzle on Sky Pillar. Ugh.
right here, waiting.

My first was, if I recall correctly, Rayquaza in Emerald, but not in my current copies of Emerald. I think I was 9 when I caught it, so that would've had to have been my second Emerald.
I want to have my hand held tightly,
and be woven in a hug
I wanna be sung to, put on the spot
And told I'm really what you want
I want roses, I want flowers; I want a kiss too
Can you show everyone how special I am to you?
Can you carry me in your arms?

That same me wants to protect, to uphold
To look out for you and ensure your health
I'd take the fall for what's wrong with you
Do you want to be carried? To have your hand held?
I would write a sonata for you as soon as the inspiration came
We could go on an adventure, I could be your guide
We'll be like little kids again, with all the fun and bliss

We'll have the time of our lives, we'll be lovers under the moon
Sipping lemon and breathing in the mountains
And we'll go to sleep as one and never wake up

My first? God man it's been like 10-12 years now how do you expect me to remember that?

I have a feeling zapdos was my first but you'll have to forgive me if I'm wrong. That memory is so old it's in... black and white! On a more serious note Zapdos is the only one I can remember playing with.

My first legendary I battled was Ho-Oh in Pokemon Gold (that my friend lost and repaid me in Pokemon cards -,-). I killed it for the exp because I had no idea legendaries existed at that time :/

First one I caught was Moltres, I was so unbelievably happy!

My first legendary in gen 3 was Kyogre. I loved the pokemon until I got Rayquaza. xD That was one of the best legendaries at that time for me.
