What's the fastest you've ever caught a legendary? And what's the fastest rate in which you have caught hard-to-catch Pokémon?

Fastest I caught a Legendary was probably Entei in FireRed when I just ran into by chance and caught it immediately with a Master Ball. Though if I exclude anytime I caught a legendary with a Master Ball, I'd say Articuno in FireRed or Victini in White. Both only took about 10-15 minutes. Fastest rate I've caught a hard-catch Pokemon? Honestly I can't remember. Though yesterday in Black 2 I caught the Volcarona in Relic Castle and that catch done was pretty quickly, through I used an Ultra Ball instead.

Catching Zekrom in 3 Ultra Balls in Black 2.

But then again it has an easy catch rate compared to most legendaries.

      I don't exactly remember the details and exactly what legendary it was (it might have been Azelf, but I can't be too sure), but I do remember tossing a single Quick Ball right from the start of the battle and catching it with full health and all. That was one of my YESSSS moments. Best capture ever. (Y)

          2nd or 3rd turn capture with an Ultra Ball against Kyogre. I remember getting its health down pretty low with one move, then just tossing an Ultra Ball or two and being impressed with how fast it all happened. Then I boxed it and never used it.

              A Quick Ball thrown at Mesprit in White 2. Mind = blown that I caught it, and it even had good IVs with a Modest nature.

                  My fastest was when I caught Mewtwo with a Masterball in one turn, END OF STORY.

                  My fastest that I could remember WITHOUT the o'mighty Master Ball was with a first turn Quick Ball on Mespirt on Diamond.

                  Not including masterball catching, my fastest would be Mewtwo. Lowered its health some (if at all), and threw a Dusk Ball. Caught it on my first try.

                  I also caught a Thundurus with almost full health using an Ultra Ball on White version. I knew it would flee if I tried to really lower its health any more, so I just threw an Ultra Ball and hoped it would work. I was pretty darn happy when I caught it.

                    After several retries I ended up catching Mewtwo on my Leafgreen file using just one Ultra Ball.

                    If only the first million attempts were that easy.

                        Caught a Palkia first turn with a Pokeball on Platinum. Felt like a boss after seeing it was a Modest nature.

                          I remember back when I was playing Ruby, before I inflicted damage or status on groudon, I just tossed a pokeball at him and then it clicked and I caught him. I was so excited when it happened.

                          Zekrom in White was the first non-Master ball legendary that I caught under 15 minutes. I have horrible luck!

                              Cobalion, unsure of the catch rate, but Ultra Balls were the ball of choice. Only took a couple. That moment made me happy because I was prepared to turn my game off and on until I got him with Ultra Balls. Lol

                                My fastest catch was Tornadus in Black, quick ball first encounter.
                                I also caught a Mewtwo with a master ball in FireRed.
