He "wants" to be the "pokemon master." So why does he never even TRY? He must have been taught something bad as a kid like to not catch legends. But even if there is religion in Pokemon or some dumb reason, why?

Best answer

Team Rocket and the fact that basically all legendaries play a role in the Pokè world

Think about it. If Ash caught All the legendaries, than Team Rocket would learn about it and probably send in so many soldiers, they would steal it from Ash in the blink of an eye. Also, all the legendaries play important roles in the Pokemon world (Kyogre=rain, Dialga=time, Arceus=God/Keeps everything running, etc.)

I would most likely think Ash wouldn't catch them primely because of Team Rocket.

I know this is already answered but I feel I should give a couple more reasons. If Ash were to catch a legendary, he would be too powerful in the anime and movies. Catching a legendary probably harms the environment yet there is some proof of that there are multiple trainers who have legendary's and the world seems to continue as normal. in the next couple sentences, I will be talking about Pokemon that have been captured in the anime.

So far here are the legends and the trainers that caught them:

Captured by Red in Pokemon Origins - Mewtwo, Moltres, Articuno, and Zapdos.
Tobias in the Sinnoh series - Latios and Darkrai
Brandon the Pyramid King - Regirock, Registeel, and Regice
Brendan - Latios, and Rayquaza
Nurse Joy - Latias
N - Reshiram or Zekrom
Green - Moltres

There are much more examples that debunk the throwing the world into chaos if you catch them (really good theory! It may or may not be canon in the anime but according to the movies you're not supposed to catch them so you were right to an amount).

Anyway, I hope that this could possibly make the answer better understandable.

Nurse joy had Latias, not Latios.
