Does anyone just not catch or raise Legendary Pokemon?

I can understand not using them, but releasing them? I personally just catch and leave them there in the box. Using legendaries in game takes the challenge out of it for me.

I used them in Red, Zapdos and/or Articuno usually.
Also, used Victini in Black.

I catch them, but I never change their names.

Though I do make them lowercase with the first letter capitalized...

Pretend this signature is a basilisk. You are now dead.

This...
With one exception.
The Terrakion I got is named Roflstompr.
However, I named it right before putting it onto another Gen 5 game and restarting my White 2 file. I only rename duplicates that I EV train and battle other people with.

I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me.
Stunfisk is the epitome of monstrous majestic legendary creatures that spew fire.

I always just feel like a douche keeping my Pokes in storage, but never ever using them. Like I robbed them of their "lives" just to become a trophy on my desktop. At leastt the Pokemon in my team are getting exercise.

The guilt is strong in me.

Either you're out of your mind or you're on to something.

Either way, I'm gonna go catch HUNDREDS of Pikachus, Laprases, and Quagsires and box them ALL! FOREVER BOXED!!! MWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

If it helps you get rid of that guilt, imagine it like the anime where boxed Pokemon are simply sent to the Professor's place to roam.

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

Well, I used Genesect in White 2. Heck, I practically soloed that game with him.
Got him as soon as I started. You could say he was my starter. :P

i dont bother with them or do i play them. i will catch them if its needed.

i use to hunt for them back in RSE and DPPt days. but ever since then, i just dont care for them since i want to raise and have a "bond" with my Pokemon. legendary Pokemon are always at level 30+ so i dont find the fun in playing them. i usually stop training Pokemon at level 50ish then stop and that is where most legendary Pokemon's level are at when you encounter them.
