Well, simply put, there called legendaries for a reason. Game freak makes these Pokemon hard to get so that they are rare. I mean, could you imagine trying to have a legitimate battle against a guy with 6 arceus? Not to mention that a lot of legendaries are pretty much gods in the pokeworld, so it kinda takes the magic out of it when some kid has six gods of time and a PC box full of the original creator of the addition by making these legendaries rare and hard to get, trainers can use their non-legendary pokes without them being obliterated by the god of the sky. Also, having easy access to legendaries would make the game too easy to beat and somewhat ruin the gameplay add on, events are intended to be rewards for dedicated players, as is catching a legendary. To sum up, legendaries are hard to get so that you can only have so many and so that you have to raise normal Pokemon to beat the game, enhancing the gameplay experience.

I'm sorry but you don't seem to get what I'm saying I'm not talking about getting 6 of the same legendarys I'm saying that pokemon events are silly and I can get many other legendary pokemon so why can't I get them?
The events are meant to reward dedicated players. If you're patient and wait a while  a new arceus or darkrai event will come and you can get one. Or you can trade, which seems like your best option as it appears you dont enjoy events.Those are you're options. There's also hacking. I honestly don't know what the choosing process is that makes some legendaries available in game while others are event exclusive, but it keeps the game from being oversaturated with legendaries, and as said earlier, rewards dedicated players with a cool, rare, and powerful
