    You know Big-N likes to hide legendaries (And legendary-wannabes) in places where people would least expect, but what one do you think is the hardest to find? Running Legendaries, Event Legendaries (Mew, Celebi, Manaphy (And thus, Phione, although it is not really legendary) Jirachi, Darkrai, Arceus, Shaymin) and legendaries found in-plot do not count (Hence that Groudon and Kyogre are only listed for Emerald). And yes, I am aware that Rotom is not legendary, but it is treated as one.
    Personally I say that it was Mewtwo in FRLG, Lugia in GSC, Regi's in RSE, and Rotom in DP.

        Mesprit and Cresselia count as Running Legendaries. It's like 12:30 AM here so I'm a little groggy.

          Umm, you dont have Mew on your poll. It WAS the ultimate hidden Poke of all time. It was the first pokemon patent and even Nintendo didnt know it was in the game until it started showing up in glitches way back in RGBY. So, Mew wins... Its existance was only revealed by ACCIDENT, not hackers or was placed obtainably in-game.

            Well this is voting for LEGITly obtained pogeymanz, without glitches or anything. And Mew is technically an event pokemon.

              I'm gonna have to go with the Regi's on this one, Regice in particular since his resting place was a bit harder to find than the others. Those visual braille puzzles were really annoying, I needed a pad of paper to write everything down.

                I would have to say regigigas. Not because he himself was that hard to find, but because you had to have already gotten all three other regis which is a challenge.

                  Agreed, it was quite the difficult task to find them. Took me a long time, and to find the Pocket Monsters to unlocks the secrets. Oy, it was just a pure challenge.

                  Regi's without a doubt, take my selection. Regice was the main problem to find for me as well.

                    I must say I agree that the Regis are the most difficult to find. Sure, you could have stumbled across the three caves, but then after that it's not all so easy since the use of Relicanth and Wailord is still needed... And reading Braille took a bit of time too.

                    Just a somewhat interesting fact which I got told by my friend the other day about the Regis; apparently their locations in Hoenn were based on positions in Japan where the Atomic bombs hit in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. And as a result they are also capable of using the move Explosion.

                      That's actually a little interesting! =3 I'm trying to catch Registeel right now. He's being stubborn, unlike his brothers.
                      Regice - 4 Ultra Balls
                      Regirock - 1 Poke Ball (I hit the wrong button), 1 Ultra Ball (This is the one I caught him in)
                      Registeel - 17 and counting.

                        Giratina. It took me AGES to find him, seeing as I almost always got lost in those horrible rooms instead of just walking through a cave or something.

                          Giratina was pretty hard, too.

                          Guess what? I just realized the chance of catching Registeel with an ultra ball is 2% or 6/255! Oh joy! [/obvious sarcasm]

                            Regis. I had a hard time leveling up wailmer just to get a wailord plus catching them and finding out what to do in the cave.

                                Gratina! it took me forever to find. I had to find the cave and then the room.
                                It was a long and stressfull time.

                                  lol, it took me about a minute to find Giratina and I caught it on my first try :)
                                  The most annoying would be Latios/Latias since you didn't have the marking map...

                                    I found Giratina annoying, until I looked it up on Serebii. But now that I think about it, rayquaza was hard the first few times also.

                                      IT is a brilliant pattern you need to do, before 30 room or your kicked out.
                                      It's brilliant, but can be easy[I got threw the very first time]

                                          Rayquaza in RSE. I never did actually find the sky pillar and if i remember rightly there were no hits in the game. Some kid i met on holiday showed me where it was. I remember reading in the walkthrough about Rayquaza, it just said ''Rayquaza can be found at the sky pillar''. Yeaaaaaaaaah, but it didnt say where that was.

                                          Just a somewhat interesting fact which I got told by my friend the other day about the Regis; apparently their locations in Hoenn were based on positions in Japan where the Atomic bombs hit in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. And as a result they are also capable of using the move Explosion.
                                          And now I feel horrible for living in America. D: That just implies that they haven't forgiven us!

                                          Anyway, of all time...most of you say Giratina. My answer to that is: Nah. I just go in rooms until I find him.

                                          To the ones who say Regigigas, that's not too bad, either. :/ Mostly cause I can read visual braille anyway, so the original Regis were easy. The hardest part with them was just getting Wailord and Relicanth. But they are second in my book.

                                          Rayquaza isn't 'hidden', so I won't say that.

                                          I guess I'll say Kyogre in Emerald. Considering you had to talk the the weather man and hunt down the route and diving spot for the whale, yeah. There you have it.

                                          But I guess the Regis should take the cake on this one.

                                            Lugia and Ho-Oh in Silver/Gold/Crystal were hard and incredibly well hidden.

                                              Hm, this is a really good question and I'm annoyed by the fact that I didn't get to it sooner. I'm not going to pick the best hidden out of every generation because there should only be one absolute Legendary Pokemon that was best hidden. After thinking about it, for me, it was most definitely Lugia, mostly because when I was searching for Lugia, I was about seven years old, I didn't possess a walkthrough and I didn't even know that Lugia was in the Whirl Islands. However, I decided that I wanted to search the entire Whirl Islands because they surely existed for a reason greater than the player being able to obtain a few items and catch a few Pokemon. I remember stubling upon Lugia by accident, but before I even started the battle, I knew it was Lugia. After watching the second Pokémon movie, I had more or less pieced it together during my three day search in the Whirl Islands.

                                              The Regis would've been amazingly hard if I hadn't had a walkthrough to know where they were, but they were quite easy to capture with a step by step guide, even if it took the fun out of the game just a tad.

                                              Ah!

                                              I forgot. Lugia.

                                              He was incredibly difficult to find. I don't even know how I managed to ever get to him. And twice at that. Cause Nintendo was just smart enough to make every cave in that game pitch black. And guess what Game Boy Colors don't have? Lights.
