The Kanto, Johto, and Sinnoh legendaries don't appear in Sapphire. Sinnoh didn't exist when Sapphire came out, so, for the others, you had to trade between FireRed, Leafgreen, Ruby, Emerald, and Colosseum to get Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, Raikou/Entei/Suicune (depending on your starter), Jirachi (from the Bonus Disk), and Mewtwo. Ho-oh, Lugia, Celebi, Mew, and Deoxys require Nintendo Events that are most likely inaccessible now. Regirock, Regice, Registeel, Groudon, Kyogre, Rayquaza, and Latios/Latias, however, can be found in your version. Check Serebii/Psypoke/Bulbapedia/ for more info. I hope this helps!


I have LeafGreen, Emerald, and Ruby. I also go to the websites I told you about often.

    The legendary pokemon in Sapphire are Kyogre (Sootopolis City Cave), Regirock (Desert Ruins), Regice (Island Cave), Registeel (I forgot where he is), and Rayquaza (Sky Pillar)

    The best way to catch these is to cause some form of status ailment like sleep, frozen or paralyze (poison, burn and confusion can backlash and make the legendaries faint, which screws you over) and then try to throw ultra balls onward. If the legendary pokemon's HP is in the low yellow range - best bet is not to strike it again. And bring a lot of revives because they will tend to kill off your party while your chucking ultra balls at them,


    I have all the legendary pokemon in Ruby version.
