Stationary Legendary Pokémon

The first type of Legendary Pokémon we are covering here are the Stationary Legends. These Pokémon are the Pokémon you are able to find just standing around in their various areas. These Pokémon will also come back if you knock them out and then defeat the Elite Four so you have multiple chances to obtain them.

Roaming Legendary Pokémon

The second type of Legendary Pokémon we are covering here are the Roaming Legends. These Pokémon are the Pokémon that, once released, will be roaming the wild areas of the regions. In Black & White, there is no set way to find them. However, you will know when they are in your area as the whole area will be hit by incredibly heavy rain. To get them to definitely appear, you should have a Pokémon one level lower than the Roamer and above the levels of the usual wild Pokémon and use Repel so only it comes. The first thing the Pokémon does is flee so you should use a Pokémon with a move or ability that prevents Pokémon from fleeing.

#641 Tornadus

Method:
After you have all eight badges and head to Route 10, you'll be informed of a weird weather pattern in Route 7. Head there and continue on until you reach the second house. After being invited into a house, when you leave, you'll get confronted by Tornadus and he'll fly off. From this point, he will start roaming the areas of Unova. In the mornings, he will appear in the southern routes and in the evenings he'll appear in the northern routes. He appears in Pokémon Black.
