    Default What happens when Legendaries are caught?

    For example, if Palkia was caught, why isn't space falling apart while he/she's in their pokeball? Or is it just happening veeeery slowly?

    (I searched through plenty o' threads but couldn't find anything like this.)

    Because they aren't necessary for the process to continue. Space already exists.

    Only a few legendaries have been established to be absolutely uncapturable, and most of those are in the anime. Even then, things like the Shamouti Legendary Birds are only uncapturable because of their positions, and others of their species can be caught with no ill effects.

    Yeah, but in its pokedex entry in platinum it says "It is said that space becomes more stable with Palkia's every breath". So doesn't that mean it becomes less stable while palkia is in a pokeball (or holding its breath)? Or should i have just not messed with the best?

    I don't think anything falls apart unless they die.

    I always thought that they were still conscious in their Poke Ball, just very small and able to see out of the container. So Palkia would still be breathing and controlling space, he'd just be resting inside the ball.

    Wait... if we catch Arceus, do we have supreme power over the rest of the universe? O.O

    Essentialy, when a pokemon is put inside a pokeball, it is still there, just inside the pokeball, they do everything the same as before they were in the pokeball, except while being carried by a trainer

    I take no credit for this banner, Kamex made it for me.

    Remember that dex entries are also full of crap most of the time.

    Maybe Arceus made them After seeing the Future? so that Their Powers work after being Caught?

    If I were working for Nintendo I would call them "rare-pokemon" and not legendary. They just make us discuss stuff they don't give a shit about. XD

    Maybe you just caught a (still powerful) fake?

    I mean, that makes some sense. Either that or catching them still allows them to use their powers.

    Well, legends don't have to be anything earth-shattering. Consider people like Paul Bunyan are legends.
