Hi there.

In order to Catch Rayquaza, You will need to have completed the Legend Crisis In Sootopolis City.
Rayquaza is located in Sky Pillar, the same place you would have already awakened it from before.
Return there and navigate to the top once more. (Keep in mind you will need a Mach bike in order to do so.)

As with any legendary battle, Save beforehand so that you can re-battle it if you need to.
Walk up to Rayquaza and challenge it. Personally, I would recommend a High level Pokemon with a sleep-inducing move. This way you can easily knock down it's health and keep Rayquaza asleep so you can throw a load of Ultraballs at it.

Catching Rayquaza may take some time, but hang in there, and keep throwing Ultraballs
Good luck, And I hope I helped.

Hi, I JUST BEAT/CAPTURED Rayquaza! It's simple. (1.) use Pokemon that is high level. [2.] use a Pokemon that have "Confusion" skills. I STRONGLY recommend you to you Golbat or Zubat, because they have the skills for 100% Success confusion. {3.} after that, Rayquaza will attack himself. *note: you must have max potion. Then, After his health is red, save the game.. **if you are using visual boy advance, you can save by using Ctrl+s n save it externally. Then use a pokeball. ***If you fail, you can load the game in the previous move, (when rayquaza's health is low) by using the Ctrl+l on your keyboard. **** Make sure you remember where you save your game file. I hope you understand my steps..

Konbanwa ... This is my only and easy method on cathing RAYQUAZA.I always use this method in catching it, and it works.
Any Pokemon(Has HM moves that can access Sky Pillar)
99 Revive
99 Timer Ball

.First go to RAYQUAZA and save
.Then battle it(use Shedinja)
.Attack once(so that it can use rest)
.Keep on throwing timer balls
.If it uses rest attack it again(again only once)
.If RAYQUAZA uses fly, simply switch out shedinja
Then the switched in Pokemon will faint, just use revive
.Just keep repeating the process again and again
.Remember patience is needed in catching this Pokemon

This is effective because:
.Timer ball keeps on getting stronger the longer the battle is
.Shedinja cannot faint on Rayquazas outrage and extremespeed
.There is a 90% chance of catching it
.10% chance RAYQUAZA will faint due to struggle(it means RAYQUAZA is out of pp)

Hope this helps...
