I know how much of a pain in the *
* catching legendaries can be. I have the Pokemon SoulSilver game and descided not to use my MasterBall on Lugia lvl. 45. I used Flash on it like fifteen times until it told me to stop and Lugia couldn't even hit me. After that I hit it a good five times and it was down to about five or six HP. I had bought about sixty UltraBalls and just started throwing them at Lugia. When Lugia finally got its *
* in an UltraBall, I only had about ten left.
One other thing is that I suck at catching Pokemon, so managing to capture it made me feel good. That is, until I watched my best friend capture a Heatran, an Azelf, and a Girantina (plus all the legendary birds and mew-two from FireRed) with friggin' PokeBalls, I felt suckish again.
