Okay, so this may be impractical and definitely would require a lot of time, but could a person theoretically battle their way up to a legendary in a game, store it in their pokemon bank, then restart the game over, therefore getting multiple legendary pokemon?

You can do that without pokebank
Find a friend and dump your copies of legendary to him restarting over and over. Until you have enough. Then trade them back.

Right, but this would make it easier on people that have no friends or only one 3ds, they basically just store the pokemon on there SD card instead of having another person or handheld to do it with.

Well yeah. The only problem is that most people have lives, and farming legendaries like that takes forever.

I was just speaking in reference to being able to do this with only one handheld. And what I want to know is, is your trainer ID cartridge specific, or would you get a new trainer ID when you start a new game? and if you keep the same ID, is there going to be something in place to keep you from having multiple legendaries with the same trainer ID in your bank

Why would they do such thing? What if you traded for those legendaries with shinies or something? There's absolutely no justifiable reason to prevent people from having multiple legendaries.

You get a new trainer ID every time you delete a save file and start a new game

It's not really broken. Doing this takes time, and if people want to take the time to do it, let them have their extra legendaries.
