Like a boss by SimbaTheHuman Like a boss by SimbaTheHuman
I don't think anyone knows that I meant you purposely use only regular Pokeballs for more of a challenge or such....
Oh well xD


It's more FUN that way >:U

But seriously, it's a pain sometimes and I don't even know why exactly I do it, but I do
And to all those weirdos like me.. here's a stamp c:


and I'm not talking ULTRA BALLS, no. Pokeballs or something with the same catch rate (ex. Heal balls)

*I know this is a bit late but oh well.* I caught Rayquaza in a pokeball on sappire version, but then I traded it to my leaf green version and lost that one. ;_; RIP undertrained rayquaza and venusaur. :iconrayquazaplz::iconvenusaurplz:

I caught Xerneas in a LUXURY BALL.
I honestly think that the luxury ball has a worse catch rate than a poke ball, since after I beat the game I decided to give my main team a vacation and make another team for when they were on break, I tried to catch an Espurr in a Luxury Ball and she popped right out.

...Then again, I heard that Xerneas and Yveltal are complete jokes when it comes to catching them...

tbh I dont think they're any more jokes than Reshiram/Zekrom probably- both of them have a higher catch rate of zekrom- really people keep complaining about it [not saying you are], but easy-to-catch legendaries have been around since DP with dialga and palkia- its due to their plot relevance .v.

I see. Though Giritina from Platinum says otherwise.
Maybe Gen 7 might make catching a legendary more difficult, though I doubt it. But hey, I don't mind them being easy to catch. It kinda makes you feel like the legendary trusts you right off the bat.

...hearing how easy Palkia and Dialga were to catch though makes me wish I didn't use that master ball on Palkia when I was a kid. I guess you can imagine how much I regretted that once I decided to try to catch Mesprit. :iconsweatdropplz:

I caught Latios and Kyruem in a repeat ball, Zekrom in a quick ball, Virizion in a grass ball, and Terrakion in a heal ball. :iconawwyeahplz: Though I did catch Coballion with a master ball and Mespirit with a ultra ball...

Got Dialga like this. Didn't injure him or lower his health at all. I just had one last pokeball I'd found, and because I was bored, threw it at him. Ended up catching him.

BEST. MOMENT. EVER. XD

The first ball i throw is always a Pokeball ;3

but still, I catched Ho-oh with a Nest Ball in Soul Silver, after i used like.. 30 ultraballs, 20 pokeballs, 20 Superballs and all other balls at least 3 times (even the Dusk balls and heals balls, heck even the net ball, yeah i sat there 3 hours, timer balls were gone at the beginning and i just didn't want to reset)

it is more fun like this.. and i am keeping the master ball for whatever i can need it.. probably the wandering pokemon

I only use ultra balls as a last resort. I almost always use regular pokeballs, which ends up taking up hours of my life, and many resets, but it's fun dammit!
I think the hardest pokemon to catch for me was Azelf in Platinum.
A week of resetting
about 30 times in total
that thing was a bitch

Wandering pokemon are the worst...
but I still use regular pokeballs
because I'm weird like that

I caught Mespirit in Black 2 in an ultra ball, begging for a miracle because I had used up all my other poke balls on it and I only had 10 more ultra poke balls left. It was a miracle! Just like when I beat Kyruem after it fused with Zekrom in one hit! :icontruestoryplz:

Well in Pokemon Black/White there are critical catches, so it will be alot easier to catch pokemons with many pokeballs. (About 1 out of 20 tries or something is a critical catch, that means that the capturing chance is much higher.)
Reply
:iconsimbathehuman:
SimbaTheHuman Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2011
Why haven't I got a critical catch if the chances are that high? owo

I think that may be a bit off, because I've caught two legendaries now, retrying three times for the first one and none of the pokeballs I threw was a critical catch. I used about 120 pokeballs total for that (I only lost 60 because of the- this is far to hard to explain...)

API-Beast Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
hm, well, crititcal catches can miss too. Kinda like if the "normal" chance is 1% the "critical" chance is 20% or something like that. I am sure you already got a few. When you get an critical catch the sound is a bit different and the pokeball only shakes once instead of 3 times.

I ONLY use Pokeballs on legends. They never want to stay in, though, and sometimes I'm like "maybe I should use a dusk ball...
NAH"

And continue to use regular pokeballs
then it sturuggles and kills itself
so I restart and try again
ect

lol That's why I prefer pokeball captures of legendaries by chance... much less to worry about.

Of course, if you do get it in a pokeball, all the more reason to brag to your friends. =D I love doing that!

I tried to get some of my friends to try it my way, but I had a hard enough time teaching them how to catch legendaries in the first place.

Friend: "OH LOOK" -runs up to legend-
Me: "NO SAVE FIRST!"

-too late-

FUUUUUU

I usually jump in and help, since I'm VERY over-competitive, it usually turns out fine. I also had a similar problem with the E4.

Friend: "I'm on the third member of the E4, can you help me?"
Me: "Uhh, sure" .... "What the hell? Your starter's at level fifty, you have a legendary with no PP left and four other pokemon at level 20" ... -checks items- "where are your healing items?"
Friend: "I ran out"

Yeah, when I was playing Soul Silver, I had to restart ten times on both Ho-oh and Zapdos before I caught the damn things. I think the game tried to say sorry by allowing me to catch Mewtwo on the second pokeball
