    If you've used them, which specifically have you used the most?

    For example, I've added Articuno on my team several times during Kanto play-throughs.

    I was looking for a final team member on Black/White, and I considered Cobalion. Since I enjoy it's presence in competitive battles. (Although decided against it).

    During the Fire Red rematch, I found the level spike was way too high, even after the island sidequests. I used Mewtwo and went through it without needing to grind anything. It's less satisfying, but otherwise I probably would have never completed it.

      Not generally, but I did use Articuno one time playing FIre Red Omega, namely because the romhack was already difficult as is and Articuno isn't Mewtwo levels of overpowered, so I saw it as fair. Plus I give it my exp share and by endgame, it was in the 70s while my others were struggling to get past early 50s. And Blue's initial endgame team in FRO is in the 70s as well which is a huge jump from Lance's low level 60s. So basically Articuno despite being considered a bad legendary by many, carried my ass in Omega, basically becoming my own ace pokemon. The only thing that sucked was it ran out of PP real quick and I had no ethers.

      I think using some of the trio legends or pokemon like Celebi or Mew isn't that much of an unfair advantage compared to say Mewtwo or Dialga.

        I used Suicune on my team once on Crystal bc for some reason there wasn't any other water Pokemon I wanted to use. Other than that the only other time(s) I used a pokemon on my "team" is before i started to actually use a team of Pokemon and just went through the game with my starter and had my "strongest" pokemon as back-up when I got to the elite four (this only happened in Silver and Ruby but it happened)

        rarely. when i first played omega ruby i used the free latias. it went into my last slot and it was good. even though i had gardevoir. i wanted to use solgaleo when i played sun (even named it nebby ;-;) but i cant be bothered to level it up and i already had alolan raichu. that's right i exchanged a legendary for an alolan raichu :P

        Mostly. I've used Lunala on Moon and Necrozma-Solgaleo on Ultra Sun. I did catch Yvetal in Y, but I ended up boxing it because my team was pretty solid by then

          Other than glitched Mew on Blue then no, I usually just box them as I catch them.

          Outside of using a Mew (which I'm pretty sure was hacked) that I got through GTS as an HM slave, the only other legendary I can remember using when it wasn't required was Articuno. I had one that knew Mind Reader and Sheer Cold back on HeartGold, and while it's a bit of a cheap tactic for a guaranteed 2HKO, I did enjoy using it once and a while.

          used to care a lot about not using legendaries way back in the good ol' days. nowadays, I just don't care and as long as I've beaten the game, I'll use whatever legendaries I want.

          after all, what's the use of having event legendaries if they're just going to sit all day in my PC?

          Generally no! The game is already easy enough, so using a legendary feels wrong. I'll really only use my favorite legends for post game content since I've gotten through the main part of the story by then. Single recent-ish exception I can think of is using the event Victini in B/W. It was too cute to pass up on. <3

          I use to use Rayquaza on my Emerald team a lot, but besides that, nope. Try not to.

          I've never used a Legendary on a Single-Player playthrough. I choose to not use any as it seems like it'd make the game a bit too easier. I like to challenge myself by using Pokémon I haven't used a whole lot before.
