I was a complete noob when I started playing Pokemon.
I trained ONLY my legendaries. And now what...
The only high level non-legendary I have is swampert(lv73)
Why can't legendaries enter the battle frontier?

Actually not all legendaries are banned for the Battle Frontier in Emerald. Only Mewtwo, Mew, Ho-oh, Lugia, Celebi, Kyogre, Groudon, Rayquaza, Jirachi and Deoxys-Speed are banned, meaning some legendaries like the legendary birds are permitted.

As for why the previously mentioned Pokemon were banned, it is because they are deemed overpowered. They remove the challenge of the Battle Frontier and make things unfair. Many of them, especially the cover legendaries, are often banned in competitive tournaments, not just by the game.
