In my sapphire game I caught regice with a regular pokeball. I got it to red health and threw some regular pokeballs as a joke and it worked! and to this day its my pride and joy.

I also caught reshiram with a pokeball but I don't know if that counts? I don't know what their catch rate is when you're FORCED to capture a Pokemon.....

Reshiram/Zekrom are VERY easy to catch, a quick ball right at the start never failed for me.

Congratz on that, I got all the legendary pkmn in emerald with a pokeball, but it was no easy deal and I really wanted to catch them in a regular ball. Funny thing is, Groudon came Adamant and Kyogre came Modest, wich are very good natured for them xD.

I have also caught Kyogre full health with quick ball (twice) and Kyurem with full health with quick ball (twice again). Give it a shot, always throw a quick ball at any legendary at the start of the battle, sometimes it woks =D!

Caught all three Arrcticuno, Zapdos, and Moltres with one. I've caught several others that way too.

I catch everything in regular pokeballs.

It takes 70+ Dusk/Ultra balls for me to catch legendaries, on average. I wouldn't want to try that with normal pokeballs...

Rayquaza (can't recall which version though).
I gave up and did the 3DS transfer anyway...
