AHHHH! I know where you can find Chansey and Tauros (Tauros: Safari Area Zone #2 and 3 Chansey: Safari Area Zone #2), but every time I meet them, they always run away, and I can't capture them! Is there some cheat or a special way to catch them? Please help me so I can continue to fill in my Pokedex!

Sorry, there's no special way of catching them, it's just chance. However, throwing bait makes the chance of them fleeing less, but harder to catch. Throwing a Rock increases the chance they will flee, but increases capture rate. Hope I helped.

Yes actually I have heard of a game shark or action replay code that you can use that will alow you to walk through walls. Once you walk through the walls in the safair zone, you don't need rocks and bait, you can catch them by battling with your pokemon.

it depends on the nature of the pokemon i have a male chancy
Guest said: 23rd Dec 2013 | REPORT
there is a 1% chance of running into them on the middle area (when you first get into the safari) and a 4% chance in area 2. You can't find them anywhere else.

You also have 4% chance of running into Tauros in Area 3

If you found them don't throw rocks and bait at them just throw you safari balls and rapidly press the b button. You'll have the higher chance of capturing them.

Its just a mental thing. The pressing "B" or any other "button trick" is just a myth. When catching Pokemon, the game does calculations, and pressing buttons DOESNT influence anything at all. Learn stuff from trustable sources. Not from random people from yahoo answers. Visit sites like Serebii and Bulbapedia. Trust me, I'm a Pokemon pro. Every day I pratically study Pokemon.

Shut up dude? haha someone mad xP It is true, The button thing is just a myth or somethin that ironically happens. I've done it numerous times, It didn't change a thing. Safari is mainly luck~ No I will not say I am a pro either xD Just noticed it through this entire time since the first Red/Blue/Green/Yellow games. The Bait/Rock thing def will help. But even that, AS the others have posted, Is STILL luck. And for the love of gawd, Wish people will stop saying they found Mew here and there. You HAVE to use a cheat/GameShark or any of the kind.

Luck or the always catch game shark code. Once you catch them they will be very helpful though. Tauros as a sweeper, and chansey as a meat sheild while you heal your Pokemon or troll your opponent.

I just caught a Tauros by throwing 3 safari balls at it. It's just chance I think.

I know how Tauros is an easy one you can catch tauros by throwing rock then pokeball if you trow bait to a female tauros she'll eat it and for chancey it's only chance but some times throwing rock will get chancey angry and run away but sometimes chansey wont run if she didn't run trow a pokeball 2 times if she's still not caught throw a bait thats how I caught mine ow also scyther was in safari zone pls throw rock then ball he's in the area near a house in area 1 kangaskhan is in 1 and 2 and dratini use surf go to middle fish with super rod in area 1 he's a 15% chance and easy to catch
