Does anyone just not catch or raise Legendary Pokemon?

#1Hierarchy225Posted 4/3/2013 4:16:49 PM
I've always had this issue if I can call it that, where I just couldn't allow myself to catch or raise a Legendary Pokemon. Or if I did catch them would just be for the pokedex entry, andI would release it immediately. Wandering around, and batting with a Lugia or Dialga or whatever has just never felt right to me. Ever since Pokemon Blue.

I don't even use them in Showdown battles. Does anyone share my aversion to utilizing Legendary Pokemon? Post why or why not.

Legendaries are the sole reason I still bother playing the games.

Why would you release them?

My favorite part of legendaries is catching them, I rarely ever use them. That's why I don't like event legendaries that are just given to you.

I don't ever use legends. I keep them in my boxes because I have to have them, for my Pokedex. I just never battle with them. The only exception to this was when I used a Black Kyurem for a monotype tournament I was having with friends (I had Ice-type and most non-Uber Ice-types suck).

I don't really know. I don't use them, and I feel bad keeping them cooped up in my box. With Pokemon I don't really collect I just take what I need, and release the rest. I like having my boxes either empty or near empty.

I'm weird like that.

Uhh... No.
I catch Legendaries and use them all the time.
However, none of them are part of my "team."

I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me.

I like to throw the most random Pokeballs at them and then scream like a girl when it actually works.

I like to catch them for the feeling of accomplishment but I never use them.

Like catching a Reshiram in a Dive Ball? I laughed when I did that the other day.
