Catching the Legendaries

My Legendary Hunting Party

Here are the Pokemon I generally use to catch the Legendaries throughout Pokemon White. Check out the following pages for how to catch the Legendaries in Pokemon White and more videos.

#1 Watchog - Grab a Patrat right away in Route 1 and level him up to Watchog.
Mean Look - Learns at lvl 36. This move keep Pokemon from fleeing battles. A LOT of the Legendaries only give you 1 attack or move before fleeing. This move keep them in one spot.
Strength - Needed to move boulders and other items to get to places they hide.
Cut - Needed to cut down trees to get to new locations.
Flash - Used to illuminate caves.

#2 Cobalion - Actually a Legendary himself he should be the first one you get. He is used because he can learn 2 very important moves.
False Swipe - TM54 ALWAYS leaves 1 Hp left so you can be confident that the Pokemon will not feint. Can be gotten for free from Juniper in your home town when you PokeDex has a seen number of 25 or higher.
Thunder Wave -TM73 can be bought from Nimbasa City PokeCenter for 10,000. This move always causes paralysis if it hits and status conditions make it easier for Pokemon to be caught.

#3 Ducklett -The only pokemon on Driftveil Bridge so its an easy catch. This is a move mule for us to get around.
Fly - to get from Town to Town quickly.
Surf - To move across the water.
Dive - To get places.

#4 Basculin - Can be gotten in Driftveil City in a trade for a Minccino which are quick easy to find in the area.
Waterfall - A needed move. Too bad we can't double it up with one of our other mains.

And then of course 40 Ultra Balls since these Legendaries have the most insanely low catch rates. Also get a good number of Dusk Balls as a lot of these will be in Caves and they do work better.

Where to get Terrakion is you go to the victory road go to acave on the right (if you passed the game) you go to your rivial then you go to your left use the move strength to move a boulder go to a cave on the left the place is called trials chamber. But you have to have combalion to do this.sorry that I didn't tell you where Vizirion I don't know where it is still on the hunt

So far on White I've gotten Zekrom, Thundurus, Cobalion, Terrakion, Virizion, and Kyurem. Thundurus was the hardest though since I had to chase him around for, probably a week before I finally caught up to him and caught him.

If you've beaten the "main game" you can find it in Relic castle, and get a Larvesta egg on route 18, and evolve it.

To get zoroark you either use an action replay code OR if you got one of the legendary dogs (suicune, entei, raikou) from the event not to long ago for ss or hg, then transfer it to the white game and then there is some route (i dont remember which one) that you walk down and some old lady attacks you but it ends up being zoroark.

Remember, you have to catch Cobalion before you can get them, so thats why they wouldn't be in there.
