Ultra Sun and Moon have one of the largest selections of Legendary Pokémon in one game.

Before attempting to catch most Legendary Pokémon, make sure to bring along…

  • Plenty of Poké Balls (and various types of them, eg. Timer Ball for drawn out battles).
  • A Pokémon that can use False Swipe (reduces opponent to no more than 1 HP). If facing a Ghost/Rock/Steel-type, a Pokémon can that can use Soak would also be useful.
  • A Pokémon that can inflict a status ailment, eg. Thunder Wave to cause paralysis.
  • Lots of healing items, just in case.
