    Since there isnt much one can do with it (deoxys, mew, Darkrai, etc). What do you do with them?

    I am currently training with my Deoxys. Seeing how it works. Got a lv 100 mewtwo as well that is ready to go, and probably get my Kryeum-W up to 100 and do an open Challenge against anyone against those three.

    With the exception of using Reshiram against N in Black, I mostly box my Legendaries after I catch them since I usually have other Pokemon that can do their job better.

    Ditto. As Hikari said; aside from the battle with N, when I get'em I box'em.

    Basically what Hikari said. I never really use legendary Pokemon in my teams anymore. I use to as a kid, but now I just see using them as an unfair disadvantage. The only exceptions was when I used Zekrom against N in White and I used Ho-Oh in my HeartGold team for a while which has now been replaced by a Pidgeot.

    I'll have to echo the previous posters in that I mostly just box my legendaries as well. There've only been two times in recent memory where I actually used one of my legendaries, with the first being when I tested out an Articuno knowing Mind Reader and Sheer Cold. The other one is Mew, who's actually in my current party on White 2 (albeit, in an HM slave role, just because).

    Agree with what Hikari mentioned. I don't use any legendaries, by the time they can be catched, I'm already attached to my team, so there is no reason to use them.

      yeah pretty much using legends in your team is just cheap way of battling. the only time I used an legend was the Arceus Event to try out it's ablity which changes it's type on what plate it is holding.

        What do you do with your Legendary Pokemon
        BOXED.

        LOL not always, the only legendary I used in my team was Ho-Oh in Gold, because I liked the idea of it being a strong fire-flying Pokemon.
        Why I box legendaries? because most of them are obtainable only after the E4, & by the time I reach the E4 I would already have a complete team. Besides that most games don't have much for me to do after the E4 (unlike in Gold & HeartGold) so it wouldn't make a difference if I caught a legendary afterwards...

        I usually keep my Legendaries in the box forever...my team were usually much more powerful by the time I caught them, like almost all my team were level 52-55 when I got around to catching Dialga in Diamond. I used Giratina in Platinum though, since my team was horribly underlevelled.

          I'll usually make a conscious attempt to teach my legendary SOMETHING useful, or at least up it a few levels. I've never actually raised a legendary to Level 100, so I'm considering attempting that and seeing how I go (I know it's much more difficult as you require 25% more Experience Points than normal Pokemon to get most legendaries to Level 100). If I don't find much use in them, though, I'll box them and occasionally pull them out when I want to have some fun.

            I've always boxed them, myself, including the Event legendaries/special ed. Pokemon.

            Usually box them. Always use Reshiram against N, and recently used Rayquaza against the Elite Four in Emerald (Well, actually just the Champion because I was kinda sleepy and wanted to see the end credits whilst still conscious). Often I use them a little in re-matches or a run through the elite four, however on HeartGold and Platinum this doesn't work as the Elite Four get stronger.

            I used my first Manaphy though. Jumped the egg onto Platinum at the first opportunity and used it all the way through

              I always use the game's main legendary on my team. So I always save one space in my party until I get it. xD

              Others, I put in the PC. I already have a team of legendaries that I use for fun alongside my "competitive" team.

              I try to use my legendaries after catching them, but I usually forget about them, y'know.

              The only exception to this was in R/S/E, when I used to exploit Kyogre's Drizzle and gave it CM + Thunder xD

              I have been using a Legendary in LG and Emerald. It was Articuno, found on LG, trained in LG for a while. I leveled him to 100, then traded to Emerald.

                I box them, since (at least in fourth & fifth generation) they can't be used in battle tower type things.
                I might use the legendaries that aren't so banned though (I guess for 'only' having pseudolegendary stat totals), like Cresselia and the birds.

                I normally use the mascot legends, with a few exceptions (Rayquaza, Kyurem, Zekrom). I use other legendaries for battle facilities, depending on their competitive viability and legality.

                  I catch them just for the sake of the pokedex but, since I don't do uber battles, I never have a use for any of the legendary pokemon.

                    I'm put them in a box named LEGENDS, but i don't use it much, because i like to see them just like were caught.

                    Even in my battle against N, I fought without my legendary. But that time my pokes was over leveled

                      I keep them in the box until a friend and I decide to use them for battle or when I just want to attack random weak pokemon with legendaries.

                        my faviorite three pokemon are Inferno my infernape, Crocky my feraligator and MEWTWO, well you can guess who he is.
                        I usualy box ALL legendaries but I kept MEWTWO for some reason, he is now one of my ELITES.
                        So keep the ones you feel you should k.

                          I box and collect them each generation, however, recently, I have been looking into EV training them, however, since they are banned in battle facilities and random matchup, there is no way for me to test their effectiveness.

                          *Deceiver (Japanese: 奇術師 Illusionist) is a type of trainer class who specializes in Illusions and deceptive tactics to take advantage of their opponents. They are tricksters and tend to disguise themselves as another trainer class to deceive challenging trainers, but soon break off of it as soon as they are found. They tend to use annoyer and stall tactics such as Embargo and Swagger along with bulky and fast Dark-types like Zoroark and Umbreon to give trainers a hard time during battle.

                            If I like them, I use them. This is always the case with Mewtwo because he's my favorite.
                            But if I don't like them or don't really care one way or another, they're boxed.
