    somehow i was able to catch Reshiram with just one (yes, ONE) ultra ball, i couldn't tell if it was fixed or i was just real lucky. and out of all the balls i threw, victini was caught with a regular pokeball...

      I try to use Pokeballs, I like it when they come out for battle and you see the original pokeball.

      But I tend to end up catching them in either a dusk or ultra ball, I only use the Master Ball on the roaming Pokemon.

          I always use ultra balls to try to catch them, though I use ultra balls to catch every pokemon so it's not anything special.

          For Zekrom I caught it in the first Dusk Ball that I threw. For the other legendaries, chances are I'll be tossing random types and seeing which one it ends up with.

            For me, Ultra Balls are the most effective. But when it comes to legendaries, I also use some status effective attacks, and lower their hp. Like how they always taught you to catch pokemon.

            I remember that one time, I didn't know I used my master ball on a Sigilyph. That's when I learned to save regularly.

              A lot of the mascot legendaries these days(Dialga, Palkia, Zekrom, etc.) EXCEPT Giritina have the catch rate of a chatot.

              Which, in fact, is 45.

                    That would explain why I got Zekrom with one ultra ball. It was paralysed and its health was at red, but I still expected it to take a hundred or so ultra balls like the likes of legendaries in previous versions.

                      I caught Victini in my third Ultra Ball.

                      I don't plan on using my Master Ball for the other Legendaries -- Unless they happen to be Shiny.

                      I use Ultra Balls for legendaries. However, if they're especially hard to catch / shiny, I'd use my Master Ball.

                      Ultra Balls of course. That's most logical xD

                        I'm trying to use Pokeballs on all the Legendaries I catch as I want all of them to match (currently caught Victini, Zekrom and Kyurem with just Pokeballs).

                        I did use my Masterball on Tornadus, though as I didn't want to go through the bother (plus I was confident at the time that I could catch other Legendaries with Pokeballs).

                        Although, the Reshiram I got off the GTS (for my Tornadus) came in an Ultra Ball...
                        Annoying really...

                          I normally use ultra balls, but after a couple of tries (and the pokemon is still out) I'll alternate from what I have until I catch it xP

                          It's always the standard pokéball for me. I won't ever use any other ball. Most of the time I have to soft-reset because the opposing legendary ends up killing itself from struggle; I just persist until it's caught.

                              I just caught my Reshiram in a Premier Ball, first throw on low-yellow health. I find it kind of disappointing that the title legendaries have such pathetic capture rates actually.

                              They should go back to the early days when it took 50 Heavy Balls to catch a Lugia or 70 Timer Balls to catch a Rayquaza.

                                Agreed! But all the small kids playing it freak out if they don't catch it in one try and cry and complain it's too hard. (I've personally seen this. They couldn't catch Heatran. Mwahaha!)

                                They have even higher capture rates than Palkia and Dialga. I thought they were bad.

                                  Whatever I have at that moment, really.
                                  I don't go out of my way to buy any specific type of Pokeballs for legendaries ; at least, not in B&W. I'll just save in front of the legendary and use what I got until I run out of Pokeballs or capture it. If the first does happen, I reset and try again. xD Like for Cobalion, I mostly had only basic Pokeballs, so I caught it in one of those on the first "capture time". :D

                                  Tis a proud moment. Makes me use basic Pokeballs more often on legends in B&W. =w=

                                    Ultraball is common choice, though the Legendaries from Gen IV and V often found in caves so it's true :D
                                    I choose Great ball, though

                                      I use ultra balls. I find them to be very effective (:

                                        i use pokeballs to catch everything so i have alot of premier balls laying around so i catch the legends in premier balls and pokeballs.

                                        it was really easy to catch reshiram in my opinion.

                                        All of those who say Poke Balls and Ultra Balls, please consider the Timer Ball.

                                        Legendaries catch rate is 3, at most. Reshiram and Zekrom, the programmers made it so that they're easier.

                                        So, Kyurem and the others are extremely hard to catch, and waste time, so use a Timer Ball. Just saying, they're a recent discovery for me, work better than Ultra Balls for longer battles.

                                        If you want to use other balls, be my guest. I'm just passing over some advice.
