X and Y will include all Pokemon from all previous games, offering the largest selection of Pokemon in any of the series' titles.

It just means that we will be able to access the Pokemon in some shape or form (mostly through transferring from gen 5). Game Freak is too smart to allow us to catch all the Pokemon. They'll milk us dry with limited events like they always do. Nothing is changing.

I don't know, but here's my guesses:

1. Legendaries will be randomly roaming, in a similar way to the Latias/Latios appearances in Ruby/Sapphire.

2. Must trade them from other games.

3. Special limited-time promotions.

4. Gift from NPCs.

5. Special areas that may house specific legendaries.

I wonder how they'll deal with legendaries that has Canonically been captured....

I mean BW had the Opposite Dragon uncatchable, that dragon later became catchable in BW2. Cynthia mentions to the player that their eyes reminded her of another trainer inside the Distortion World but was ambiguous if Giratina was captured.

Groudon/Kyogre/Rayquaza appears to be fair game, despite also appearing in Johto for some reason, and BW2 seemingly has 2 groups of Regis...though the whole "different timeline" thing with the transfer of keys makes it hard to determine if they're the same ones or what, though Regigigas was said to have pulled continents together, perhaps there were multiple ones forming the world just like how there are multiple Heatran and Lati@s.


Genesect and Mewtwo are outright stated to be non-unique, same goes for Lugia, though that's Anime canon, so it's unsure if it follows example with the game's, and there are definitely more than one Lati@s due to the Soul Dew being the reminant of a dead one, meaning there are 3+ at any one time, unless confirmed to be endangered.

EDIT: There is definitely 3 Lati@s, the Eon Ticket one is always the opposite you didn't pick, and that one holds a Dew, though getting a ticket in Emerald could only be obtained from mixing records, the reality is that picking one from the Television meaning that one WILL be killed would be too grim, so there could be atleast 4 to 6 Lati@ses in R/S/E's canon; 2 roamers, 2 Eon Islands and 2 Soul Dews from the Island...assuming that they only hold the dew of their opposite.

If I had it my way it would be through a series of subevents or a dungeon tailored to that specific legendary or a combination of both, but I don't run Gamefreak so expect the usual event-only and transfer-only aspects as usual.
