Okay, so most Pokémon lay eggs, but why can't legendries? I'm pretty sure that only a few Pokémon can lay eggs, even though they are still legendries.. So how does that work? Thanks!

If a legendary could breed, you could end up with multiple of the same legendary very easily. Not only are legends supposed to be fairly rare, this would be overpowered ingame as you could easily use a full legend team and sweep through the rest of the game. Manaphy is able to breed because it produces Phione, who isn't very strong.
