Since Gen II we've had the burden pleasure of having roaming Pokémon, not just any Pokémon roam, though; only a specific few, that are legends might I add, roam throughout the regions, they are; Suicune, Entei, Raikou (Gen II, III and IV), Latios and Latias (Gen III and IV), Moltres, Articuno, Zapdos, Cresselia and Mesprit (Gen IV) and Tornadus and Thundurus (Gen V)

So, did you like the feature of roaming Pokémon? Do you want it brought back in Gen VI? What would you change about them? Would you perhaps make it so paralysis and sleep would make them stay in the battle until they wake up? What was your favourite method of capturing them?

As for me; I didn't really enjoy the feature, mainly because a lot of the time I forgot about them and just randomly they'd pop up and I'd have no way of capturing it and then I'd go after it and spend hours on it. :( I personally wouldn't want it brought back in Gen VI mainly because I just didn't like it, lol; I'm glad it never appeared in BW2; however if it did come back I'd like it so the legends who were roaming had a slightly higher capture rate because running around for hours on end trying to catch it whilst only having a small chance is really annoying and time consuming tbh.

Favourite method was to go into the grass where they were, once I'd eventually caught up that is, use a repel and encounter them and then beat them until they're red and paralyzed.

Bonus Question: Do you think GF should have paid more attention to the two glitches that appeared in Gen III's dog (and Lati) roamers? For those that don't know there are two glitches; one that affects the roamers in RS and FRLG this glitch makes it so the roamers will have extremely low IV's and the other is purely for FRLG where if the player encounters Entei or Raikou they can Roar to flee; if they do they will disappear from the game forever. Emerald is unaffected by any of this.

*Suicune doesn't roam as such in some of the games, you simply go to different places where he is and then eventually he'll show up at a spot and stay there.
