You can get Palkia as part of the main storyline. Dialga is its counterpart, but is not found in Pearl.
After defeating/catching Palkia, the lake trio Uxie, Mesprit, and Azelf can be found at their respective lakes. Mesprit is annoying however because it'll go running around Sinnoh, rather than just battling you at the lake. You can use the Poketch Map plugin to track its movements.
After you obtain the National Dex, a few other Legendaries become available:
Heatran - The end of the Stark Mountain sidequest. You'll have to go back into the mountain to get it.
Regigigas - Snowpoint Ruins, but you need to transfer the other three Regis into your game.
Giratina - Turnback Cave, found east of Route 214. It's a maze.
Cresselia - Talk to the sailor's family in Canalave to get access to Full Moon Island. Like Mesprit, this one runs around Sinnoh.
Manaphy - You can unlock it in a Ranger game and use two DSes to transfer its egg into Pearl (or any other Gen4 DS game).
Phione - Breed Manaphy with a Ditto.
And then there's several Pokemon that are (or were) only available as Event Pokemon:
Darkrai - The locked house in Canalave. You need the event item Membership Pass.
Shaymin - White Rock on Route 224. You need the event item Oak's Letter.
Arceus - Spear Pillar at the top of Mt. Coronet. You need the event item Azure Flute.
For the Event Pokemon, you need to wait and see if they give out the items via the Nintendo WFC. If they already have, someone with the Wonder Cards can help you. Otherwise, you'll need a Gameshark or other cheat device to score the items.
