Catching Legendaries

Most of the Legendaries and Hidden Pokemon are only available after getting all 16 Badges. Things to remember are MAKE SURE YOU HAVE AN OPEN SPACE. It's very frustrating to trek through a dungeon to realize you can't even catch Mewtwo at all because you came with a full party. Giving Pokemon statuses like Par and Slp is a HUGE help. Also the move Flash Swipe is awesome. It leaves 1 HP left if it would otherwise knock out a Pokemon. Also make sure to bring plenty of Ultra Balls. I've thrown 20 Ultra at a Legendary before getting a capture. This is also the end game and some of these Legendaries are in low level areas so some Max Repeals would be nice so you aren't fighting a lvl 3 Hoothoot ever 5 seconds.

Don't forget your one Master Ball you got for beating the initial 8. It's 100% guaranteed. You may want to use it on one of the Dogs since they can get annoying always running away or just one of the harder to catch higher levels like Ho-Oh.

Each legendary in Soul Silver will be tackled one by one on the following pages.
