POkemon Omega Ruby And Alpha SapphireLegendary Pokemon Guide
Do you want to capture all the legendary Pokemon in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire? However, you have no idea where to find these powerful Pokemon. Then I have good news for you, this guide will greatly assist in the hunt to catch all the legendary Pokemon in Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.
For your convenience, I have excluded all the Legendary Pokemon that can be captured through the main game. So Groudon, Kyogre, Latias, and Latios.
UPDATE: I’ve noticed some are having problems finding certain Pokemon; please ensure you have finished the Pokemon League and the Delta Episode (Walkthrough in the link). If you are having trouble still, please comment detailing what Pokemon you are looking for and what issue you are facing, I’ll try my best to help.
Update 2: Many have notified me that they are having trouble catching certain Pokemon, particularly the third Pokemon of a legendary trio. Fortunately, you are not alone as I have been inundated with requests asking help finding Uxie, the last musketeer pokemon and the last legendary dogs. Unfortunately, I do not have the answers right now. But it is definitely possible to catch all three of the trio. My advice is to be patient and keep checking every day until the Pokemon you are looking pop ups. Also it might be worthwhile to check at different times of the day; that is morning, afternoon, night and ensure that you have the prerequisites correct.
How to Catch Rayquaza and Deoxys
Rayquaza and Deoxys can be captured naturally by completing the Delta Episode. The Delta Episode is a post game quest that can be completed after beating the Pokemon League.

Once you have the Eon Flute, use the item to take to the sky with Latios/Latias. You will need to head to Pacifildog Town via the Sky. Using the map above as an indicator, there should be a large island with a glowing spark mark above near Pacifildog. Hover over the island and land on the mass. The island should be called the Pathless Plain. Following the path there should be a portal at the end. Save your game and press A to interact. You will have an opportunity to either catch Terrakion, Virizion or Cobalion. The legendary musketeer Pokemon will be at level 50. After some time has pass, you can revisit the Pathless Plain to capture the other two legendary Pokemon.
How To Catch Mesprit, Uxie and Azelf
Update: You need 3 Pokemon with Maximum Happiness to get Azelf, Mesprit and Uxie (confirmed).
I’ve been told you can capture Uxie by checking the Nameless Cavern between 8-9 pm, when the sun sets. DO NOT MANUALLY CHANGE THE TIME (VIA YOUR 3DS SYSTEM) AS IT SCREWS IT UP. Wait for the time to naturally occur. Confirmed to work!
“Saw a post about Uxíe only appearing between 8-9pm on ur system clock. Worked for me appeared right on 8pm and I’d been looking for him for days” – Diggly from the comment section.
Using the Eon Flute, head to the skies of Sootopolis City. In this area, you should see a glowing spark similar to the one found near Pacifilfog. The secret area is called the Nameless Cavern. Inside this path you should see a portal. Save the game and interact with the Portal to encounter Mesprit, Azelf or Uxie. Let some time pass, then revisit the Nameless Cavern to capture the other two pixie legendary.
How to Catch Palkia, Dialga and Giratina
Have Mesprit, Azelf and Uxie in your party. Using the Eon Flute travel to the skies of Dewford Town. In the area you should notice a tear in the sky. Interacting with the tear will have either Palkia (Omega Ruby) or Dialga (Alpha Sapphire) enter into an encounter. Use this opportunity t capture the jewellery legendary Pokemon. To capture Giratina, have Palkia and Dialga in your party, and you will see a tear in the same area where you caught Palkia, Dialga.
How to Catch Lugia and Ho-oh
Head to Sea Mauville. Once inside the ship go down the left side of the ship, enter the water and use dive to reach the depths. Go down another level to reach the basement level. On the right side of the basement (using the image as a guide), keep pressing A until you find the Scanner. Once have the Scanner, fly to the Slateport City and give the Scanner to Captain Stern. Captain Stern will give you the Tidal Bell. Now, go back to Sea Mauville and the item will resonate with the ship. Now depending on what version you have, you can capture Ho-oh (Omega Ruby) or Lugia (Alpha Sapphire). Ho-oh will be at the deck, while Lugia is at the basement.
How To Catch Raikou, Entei and Suicune
UPDATE: You need Luigi or Ho-oh in your team and visit the Trackless Forest between specific times during the hour.
Raikou: Visit the Trackless Forest between xx:00 – xx:20 (example between 9:00 – 9:20)
Entei: Visit the Trackless Forest between xx:21 – xx:40 (example between 9:21 – 9:40
Suicune: Visit the Trakless Forest between xx:41 – xx:00 ( example between 9: 41 – 10:00)
Thanks Shamwow for the tip.
When you have Lugia or Ho-oh in your party, a new area will be available for you to visit. East of Rustboro City, you can enter the trackless forest. Here you can capture Raikou, Entei and Suicune. Rinse and Repeat until you get all three legendary dogs.
How To Catch Thundurus, Tornadus and Landorus
Firstly, you will need to catch Thundurus or Tornadus before Landorus becomes available for capture. You will need to have castform in your team. Using the Eon Flute, fly to the skies around Fortree City to find an onimous cloud. Interact with cloud to encounter either Tornadus (Omega Ruby) or Thundurus (Alpha Sapphire). To capture Landorus, you will need both Thundurus and Tornadus. Explore the skies near Fortree City to find the a cloud to encounter Landorus.
How To Catch Reshiram, Zekrom and Kyurem
Update: I’ve been told you need at least one level 100 Pokemon in your team.
Using the Eon Flute take to the skies and travel to the area near Mauville. You should notice a large island with a spark marking the Fabled Island. Inside you will encounter either Reshiram (Omega Ruby) or Zekrom (Alpha Sapphire). To capture Kyurem, you will need both Reshiram and Zekram in you party. Take to the skies, and explore the area near Mt Chimney to find the Gnarled den. Inside you have the opportunity to capture Kyurem.
How To Catch Registeel, Regirock, Regice and Regigigas

How To Catch Heatran
Fly to Fortree City and head to route 120. In the surfing area of the route, you should notice a cave; head inside to meet Gym Leader Flannery. Deep inside the cave (it’s not hard to traverse through), you should encounter a Level 50 Heatran. You can watch the video above (from Pimpnite) for an easy guide to follow.
How To Catch Cresselia
After doing some investigation for myself and some advice from the comment section, I think I know how to unlock Cresselia. Crescent Island (the island where Cresselia presides) appears randomly and you will need to check periodically whether the island appears in your game. I noticed that the there are several Mirage Islands in Hoenn, and also notice that they take turns in appearing at the overworld. I’ve been told there are no prerequisites, so it is logical to conclude that Crescent Island will periodically appear in your game; the only thing required is to keep checking your game. As for where to check, Crescent Island is south of Ever Grande City (Victory Road). Good luck.
