    I used Zapdos and Articuno in LeafGreen and Rayquaza in Emerald. Rayquaza was basically the main Pokemon I used in the main story after I caught it. For Articuno and Zapdos, those 2 were among my in-game team.

      No - I never use legendaries, at all. Uber is boring.

        I only use legendaries if I have no choice or if I need a last resource.

        I'll use legendaries in my team if I really like them or just have the urge to use them. I mean, it's my game. I can use whatever I want. :3

              I never use legendaries in-game, and unless the world will end if I don't I will continue this. First of all, the game just isn't as interesting for me, using a legendary. It becomes a bit too easy and more boring. The Elite 4 never uses legendaries, and for me, I would only use a legendary if they had one also. Second, legendaries don't appear until later in the game, which is another turn-off for me. I prefer to use a team that I have developed a lot over time, and I also love that feeling when I evolve a Pokemon to its last form, making it "complete" in my eyes.

                I don't use any legendaries when battling, I stay with my favorite Pokemon, and the ones I struggled the most to get to the Elite 4.
                I ♥ Fire Foxes and Cats!! - art drawn by do-it-yourself (claims no credit)
                instead of 'Catch 'em All' for me would be "gotta Pet 'Em All"

                  In never use legendaries in-game. I personally think they make the games too easy, with abnormally high stats compared to the other Pokemon trainers have with them. I love having a bit of a challenge.

                  I do use some legendaries in my competetive teams, however, but not entirely on purpose. Per say, I wanted a Special Wall that isn't Blissy/Chansey and can attack decently- Latias fits perfectly.
