PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

Self-explanatory. Also, by competitive I don't mean link battles but things like ranked battles and Battle tree instead.

The only legendary Pokemon I know aren't banned in ranked in Sw/Sh (sorry, I don't know other gens) are Silvally, Urshifu Rapid and Single strike style, Terrakion, Cobalion and Virizion.

I hope I helped!
Legendary Pokemon with 600 BST or less (and Regigigas) are usually allowed. I'm pretty sure mythical Pokemon are always banned.
I'm not sure if I'm correct about this because I don't keep up with competitive news, but doesn't the in-game ban list change around every month?

No Mythical Pokémon is allowed in ranked battles, or in any battle facility with a banlist. As for legendaries, Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, Raikou, Entei, Suicune, Regirock, Regice, Registeel, Latias, Latios, Uxie, Mesprit, Azelf, Heatran, Regigigas, Cobalion, Terrakion, Virizion, Tornadus, Thundurus, Landorus, Type: Null, Silvally, Tapu Koko, Tapu Lele, Tapu Bulu, Tapu Fini, Kubfu, and Urshifu (and most likely Regieleki, Regidrago, and Calyrex when the Crown Tundra is released) are allowed in ranked battles and battle facilities in all generations they appear in (along with the Ultra Beasts, which aren't officially considered legendaries but are internally classified as such in the game's code). Additionally, several battle facilities allow any Pokémon including those banned from other facilities, including the Lv. 70+ modes of the Battle Tower in Crystal, Trainer Tower in FRLG, Trainer Hill in Emerald, and the normal non-Super modes of the Battle Tree in USUM.
