Lets say for example: you catch Reshiram in N's Castle (in Black, I'm not talking about Black/White 2) and after you beat the game you go into your PC and release Reshiram, or if you have traded him away, can you still re-catch him in Dragonspiral Tower? Im asking this because #1: Nobody has ever asked this (which I'm kind of suprised at) and #2: one of my friends traded his Reshiram away for a Zekrom, which he found out it was hacked (it was shiny, Reshiram and Zekrom are always shiny locked) so he can't transfer it to his Y version (the hack will be detected) So can you recatch it, or is your chance gone?

So many answers...
I've seen 6 people answer at around the same time.
I wouldn't remember the link but I've seen it.

It only matters if you catch it.

Doesn't matter if you trade it or release it or whatever, once you get that Zekrom/Reshiram in the PokeBall, you will never find it again. When you apply logic, there should only be one in existence in the game as it is a legendary Pokemon. Sorry for your friend.

Hope I helped. :)

You can only catch a legendary Pokemon once in a game.

No, there is no way to catch either of them again unless you restart your game.

Recatching Zekrom/ Reshiram only works if you knocked them out and beat the E4 again.
