Default I Sure am Lucky

Today while playing HeartGold, I was patrolling with my mid-twenties team when all of a sudden a Raikou springs from the bushes! Exotic rhythms begin to play, and I know it will flee, and my Bayleef can't do a thing. This is the first time I encountered it, so it is brimming with HP and healthy as a newborn. I whip out my Heavy Ball, toss is, and catch it. O_O' I didn't expect that at all, not even one shake. That's one legendary pup down.

Have any of you easily caught a seemingly elusive Pokemon before?

I just love my Darkrai capture way back in Platinum.

I haven't been hunting legends yet, but I did randomly encounter Entei a few days ago. I chucked an Ultra Ball at it and it broke free.

Wow, that's almost like winning the lottery (sort of). In my Heart Gold, right after I beat Morty and exited west, Raikou was the first wild Pokemon I encountered! Of course, it was 10 levels higher and I didn't have any special balls.

Not that it matters, because I have a Shiny Raikou in Platinum.

I encountered Raikou a lot of times in my SoulSilver, and every time I try to catch him with a Heavy/Quick/Dusk Ball without battling him, I simply fail. He is still at full health, roaming the lands of Johto that I have visited.

In Platinum, I was able to catch Cresselia without even battling her at all. I threw a ball (forgot which one) at her, and the next thing I knew: Cresselia was caught.

For me, both shaymin and darkrai stayed in the second pokeball, I hope that happens to me during the Arceus event.

I caught Heatran with a Luxury Ball, but that's not really too special. :/ I think I weakened it a bit first, too.
But Cat caught Kyogre with one Poké Ball!

My friend caught a Kyogre in Emerald with an ultra ball at full health while sleeping. Not much compared to other stories, but I thought it was cool.

I caught Darkrai (in Platinum) in a pokeball first shot no weakening, I caught Palkia and Dialga both just like Darkrai. I also got Lugia second shot in a heavy ball (in HG), and Suicune in an ultra ball second shot. I am lucky.

A few years ago, me and my friend were playing Ruby and Sapphire. I was playing Sapphire. We were both at the part where you catch the legendary (Groudon/Kyogre) and we were going to race to see who could catch it first. We started, and I chucked a Normal Pokeball at it right away, and caught it.

That is my craziest catch story.

Caught Latais in HG with a luxury ball, it was weakened though.

And in Pokemon XD a few years back I was trying to catch Articuno, it was weakened. But my Ultra Ball's weren't even shaking once. I throw a Pokeball due to rage, boom - caught.

Mewtwo is easy to catch. In FRLG all you need is a Sableye and it can't attack you. In HGSS all you need is ANY DARK TYPE POKEMON, plus in this one it loses it's attacking and healing moves for Guard Swap and Power Swap, which do close to nothing.

Well, one time I was trying to catch Raikou, and I was out of Ultra Balls, but didn't know. So I threw a PokeBall for fun, and it caught it. After 30 Ultra Balls.

Some bad luck for me today with Sudowoodo in SoulSilver. I had it down to a point where only like 1 or 2 points of damage would send it to the red zone. Ultra Ball #1: zero shakes, escapes from ball immediately. Ultra Ball #2: Same as number one. The third Ultra Ball caught him.

Just today, I woke up and opened my DSi and went to route 27. Then I find a Pokemon, the screen does it's "legendary" style shake. So I say, "Here comes a runner...". Sure enough it was Latias, I threw a Quick ball. 1....2....3.... *click*. Ta-da! Now I've got a nice level 35 Latias.

The only thing I got close to that was when I was playing Sapphire the first time, and ran into the Female Ralts that is now Kaanta's grandmother. I had just two Pokeballs, and didn't want to risk crushing the poor thing, so I just lobbed a Pokeball at her, and ping. Catch'd.

That's about it. Everything else seems to be a struggle for me. :3

Groudon. I was on my last pokemon, Magnezone (bad matchup) and I had my Master Ball and a Heavy Ball left. Groudon was on full HP... I through the heavy ball and capture!

However, I have had luck better than that with an Arceus and a Shiny Metagross. I was on serebii net chat asking for an Arceus to activate the Giratina/Dialga/Palkia thingy. This complete IDIOT came up to me and said, hey I'll take that EV'd Bastiodon (hardly ev'd) for Arceus, and I'll give you a shiny metagross (level 100, Pokerus) for that Ev'd drapion (also hardly ev'd). Have you met an IDIOT like that?

If only I was as lucky as you...

I think my best capture was when I caught a Timid Zapdos as my first capture of it.

If this were D/P/Pt, thats a different story.

While doing a seemingly infinite amount of grinding on HG, a Raikou jumped out at me on Route WherevertheMiltankFarmis. I got bored and just threw a Great Ball. It stuck like glue. But not kindergarten glue, it stuck like really-good-working glue.

A couple of strokes of luck hit me on Pokémon Black last week:

I went off to catch Victini, but when I got into the battle with it I realised my Pokémon were too powerful. I thought I might as well have a try anyway, so I got out my weakest Pokémon, Zeburaika, and paralysed the Victini. Then, after a mere two Ultra balls, I caught it!

Later on I went to continue the story, and encounter Reshiram. I wasn't really paying too much attention, so I just hit it with one attack to bring it down to low HP, and lobbed an ultra ball. Reshiram GET!

In Platinum I was facing Palkia and had 5 Ultra Balls, 10 Great Balls and 2 Poke Balls, I weakened it halfway and threw a Ultra Ball and got 1 wobble, so then I threw a Great Ball, I wanted to save the Ultra Balls for Dialga, and caught Palkia! Then I battled Dailga the same way except using all Ultra Balls, Great Balls and 1 Poke Ball, so then I crossed my fingers, toes and everything I could and threw my last Poke Ball ans caught Dialga! I was so amazed at both of these captures and nothing like this has ever happened since then.

I managed to catch Ho-oh in HG yesterday without needing to use the Master Ball. /o.o\

Caught Raikou and Entei the same day a few days earlier with Fast Balls after about a week or two of aggressive pursuit.

Only other lucky catch I can think of was for a friend about a year or two back...managed to nail Mewtwo with a Great Ball after fighting it down to about 3/4ths health and completely draining both Defense and Sp. Def down to their lowest level.
EDIT: Technically that was in FireRed, but I personally had never heard of Mewtwo being caught by anything lower than Master Ball, much less a Great Ball. Also won't cite catching Groudon/Kyogre back in Emerald seeing as I haven't touched it since getting HG/SS.


Yeah, basically it for me... ._.

I started my SS a week ago and did the Arceus event in the Sinjoh Ruins and choose a Giratina and when the egg hatched it was Shiny! I was really happy and then I got on Serebii and traded it for a Shiny Jirachi with 31 IVs in Atk and Spd! It was worth it!
