Where and Tips to Catch the Legendarys
NOTE: These are in order on how easy they are to Catch. ~Rotom~ Level 2o in the old Chateu. It is in the TV upstairs and ONLY at night. I Suggest you use Dusk, Nest or Ultra Balls for Quickest Capture. ~Azelf~ Level 50 in the Lake Valor Cavern. Go to Lake Valor and surf to the middle of the lake where there is a cave entrance. I used Ultra Balls and cought it in 4 turns, you could also use Dusk balls. ~Uzie~ Level 50 in the lake Acuity Cavern. Go to Lake Acuity and Surf to the Middle of the lake where there should be a Cave Entrance. I used a Quick ball and Cought it but you should use Ultra and Dusk balls, too. ~Regigigas~ Level 1 in the Snowpoint Temple. You should weaken it with a Level 2-4 Starly, Shinx or Budew and then use Nest Balls. ~Dialga/Palkia~ Both are level 70 and at the Spear Pillar. First you need to get the Lustorous and Adamant orbs from the Waterfalls cave in Mt. Coronet, than go see the elder in the retirement Building in Celestic Town. I used a Quick ball on Dialga and Caught it and an Ultra Ball on Palkia. You should use Dusk balls, Net Balls(Palkia) and Ultra Balls to Catch them. ~Giratina~ Level 47 in Distortion world/Turnback cave. During the story, you go to distortion world with Cynthia, Cyrus and the lake Pokemon. At the end, you battle cyrus and than Battle Giratina. Use Ultra Balls to capture it. If you KO or Run from Giratina in the Distortion world, Go to Turnback cave and find Giratina in there. ~Heatran~ Level 50 in Stark Mountain. After helping Buck Defeat team Galactic go tothe battleground in the Survival area and return to the place where Charron was defeated, Heatran should be there now. I suggest using ultra and timer balls on it. ~Mesprit~ Level 50 and in lake Verity Cavern. Go to lake verity and surf to the middle where there is a cave entrance. Whene you talk to it, it dissapears and you have to Chase it around Sinnoh. Use Mean look on it and use ultra balls to capture it. ~Cressilia~ Level 50 and on fullmoon island. Go to full moon island and find it. Talk to it and it will dissapaer. Chase it around Sinnoh and try to capture it. This is a good time to use the masterball, since Cressilia has a Cthch rate of 9/250. NOTE: All of these except Dialga, Palkia, Heatran, Regigigas and Cresselia can be found before elite four.
