What's the point of legendary pokemon?

You can't use most of them in the battle tower, random online matches, official tournaments...

I want to be able to use legendary pkmn in the battle tower or its equivalents ;_;

Oh and have the cpu in the bt. tower use legendary pkmn too, to add to the challenge.

The point of them is to lay waste to the rest of the region.
Why else do you think evil teams do it?

Basically trophies. Or you can use them on your team and guarantee victory!

Not all legendary Pokemon are banned.

They're basically really only useful if you battle other non-NPC players.

The real point of them is promotion and merchandizing.

They add story to the game. Without them, there is no story or sidequests.

They help in world building. Quite often there is some kind of backstory to develop interest, such as Jirachi granting wishes, or Uxie giving mankind intelligence.

In real-life tournaments there are side-events where you can use them. Also, you can use them on your friends.

Or Mewtwo and Genesect simply being weapons of mass destruction.
