Pokemon Sun and Moon Legendary Pokemon

This Pokemon Sun and Moon Legendary Pokemon guide serves as a list of Legendaries in Sun and Moon. Pokemon Sun and Moon Versions introduce the seventh generation of Pokemon in the Alola Region. This guide will cover how to catch all of the Legendary Pokemon.

Tips for catching legendaries in Sun & Moon

  • Make sure to save before battling each legendary so that you'll be able to reset if you accidently KO the legendary or run out of balls to catch it.
  • Lower each legenday's health until it is red and apply any status conditions like sleep, paralysis, poison, or burn to ensure the highest chance of catching.
  • We recommend throwing one Quick Ball at the beginning of each encounter and testing your luck. After that throw Dusk Balls (at night or in caves) or Ultra Balls until the legendary is caught. Catch rates are high in Pokemon Sun & Moon, so we recommend saving your Master Ball for shinies that can flee or self destruct.
  • If you don't catch a legendary your first attempt (accideently KO), you will have another opportunity after re-defeating the elite four, so don't panic. Remember to save before encounters when you can so you don't have to worry about this.
