Title says it all.

I'm pretty sure they can appear on any route with grass or water.
Actually, in HGSS, Raikou and Entei can't appear on Routes 40 and 41 (the main water routes between Olivine and Cianwood City), and I'm almost certain that Latios/Latias (also in HGSS) can't appear on Route 20 (the Seafoam Islands route). My knowledge of Roaming Legendary locations ends there, though.

Source- Experience... And https://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Roaming_Pokémon#Generation_V_2

Almost certain that I've had Cresselia and/or Mesprit appear on water in Diamond.
They don't, and my source, if you scroll up, shows Cresselia and Mesprite are grass appearances only.
I have a *lot* of experience with HGSS, and I can, with certainty, say that Raikou, Entei, and [email protected] can appear while surfing.
