Not yet, although I do plan on doing one eventually.

If you read the comments on this one, I already gave some recommendations for a few of them, because people asked for them.

If there's any Pokémon in particular that you had in mind, just let me know, and I'll give my recommendations for it, as well.

Lol, nice come back!

Still, you should take it easy on Finrod.

He might talk a lot of trash, and regularly get basic things wrong (like how commonly used Moves work), but he's a decent guy, and surprisingly sensitive, too.

Yeah, but like I said, he's VERY sensitive.

I don't THINK he'd be bothered by an innocent joke like that, but I'm not 100% sure.
(I mean, he DID make his Profile Private for multiple weeks, and even dropped me as a Friend, just because he disagreed with my opinion of Smogon's Tiering System.)

And Zygarde is for (the nonexistent) Pokémon Z Version, where they (would have) added Zygarde's 2 other Forms.

Check out my Polls. I made a "What Pokémon Game (that was never made) would you have liked to Play?" one, and I included Pokémon Z Version in it.

Yep. In fact, it's the one on the front of the box.

It's one of the strongest Fairy-types there is, making it good to use against us Dragon Masters (although Dragons are tough to beat, no matter what).

Yeah but I think you can catch it in Pokemon Sun/Ultra Sun/Moon/Ultra Moon? I don't know I haven't got that far yet.

In Ultra Sun you can.
Between the two Ultra Games, you can get pretty much all of these Legendaries I have listed (and most of the ones that aren't, too).

I only have HO-OH and Mewtwo, Articuno, Moltres, Zapdos and Suicine...

In reply to MIMtheHERO
That's still pretty good.
The moves and stats I have listed for Mewtwo and Ho-oh might be useful.
Did you want advice for the others, too?

In reply to Draconid_Jo
Yessss ples!
All those ones I caught are from Pokemon Heart Gold.
I just started Ultra Sun so I don't have legendaries in that game yet

Sweet! Heart Gold and Soul Silver may be old, but IMO they are the 2nd best Pokémon Games ever made (my favorite is Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire).

As for those Legendaries, here's what I'd recommend (in Heart Gold, anyway):

Articuno
Timid (If you've already caught them, ignore the Natures), 252 Sp. Atk, 252 Speed, 6 Def.
Blizzard, Sheer Cold, Hail (or Roost), Mind Reader.
Charti Berry (or Wide Lens)

Moltres
Timid, 252 Sp. Atk, 252 Speed, 6 HP.
Fire Blast (or Heat Wave), Air Slash, Solar Beam, Sunny Day (or Roost).
Charti Berry (or Power Herb)

Zapdos
Naive, 124 Atk, 124 Sp. Atk, 252 Speed, 5 Def, 5 Sp. Def.
Thunder, Sky Attack (or Drill Peck), Rain Dance (or Ominous Wind), Charge.
Power Herb (or Wide Lens)

(These would vary somewhat depending upon your individual Pokémon's stats, though.)

I just stuck to the Major Legendaries for this (those not allowed at Battle Frontier, and other such places).

The 2 exceptions to this are Latias and Latios. I included them because of their very high stats when holding a Soul Dew.

Also, if available, I STRONGLY recommend using the HA versions, for most of these (in particular, Lugia and Ho-oh).

This is just off the top of my head, but here goes:

Regigigas
Jolly, 252 Atk, 252 Speed, 6 HP.
Crush Grip, Drain Punch, Knock Off (Stone Edge in Gen 4/5), Power-Up Punch (Earthquake in Gen 4/5).
Assault Vest (Life Orb in Gen 4/5)

Coballion
Jolly, 252 Atk, 252 Speed, 6 HP.
Sacred Sword, Iron Head, Earthquake, Swords Dance.
Focus Sash

Terrakion
Jolly, 252 Atk, 252 Speed, 6 Sp. Def.
Sacred Sword, Stone Edge, Earthquake, Swords Dance.
Focus Sash

Virizion
Jolly, 252 Atk, 252 Speed, 252 Def.
Sacred Sword, Leaf Blade, Stone Edge, Swords Dance.

I don't use any of these much, BTW. Hopefully I didn't mess up and list a move they can't even learn, lol!

OK, I wasn't THAT far off. For Cobalion*, go with:
Adamant, 252 Atk, 252 Speed, 6 Sp. Def.
Sacred Sword, Iron Head, Stone Edge, Swords Dance.

And for Virizion:
Adamant, 252 Atk, 252 Speed, 6 Def. (Not 252 Def, lol!)
Sacred Sword, Leaf Blade, Stone Edge (or Bounce), Swords Dance.

No problem.

I have a habit of just reading through my (outdated) Pokémon Strategy Guides, thinking about movesets and stuff, even for Pokémon I don't really use.

I just enjoy doing it for some reason.
