CATCHING TERRAKION I Tried Battling and Catchin..

michaelhole137 asks: Added Feb 14th 2013, ID #299795

Question for Pokemon Black 2


I Tried Battling and Catching Terrakion, but I failed to Catch him. :(

This is What I did:

I sent out my Level 50 Haxorus
Used "False Swipe"
Terrakion goes First and uses either "Rock Slide", and/or "Sacred Sword", and takes my Haxorus' Health down to more than Half every time I heal him with Potions.

I then tried Paralyzing him with my Electabuzz's Static Ability, and/or "Thunder Wave" After taking his HP down to 1 with "False Swipe".

Then, I tried chucking Ultra Balls, and Timer Balls, but he kept on Breaking out of every Poke Ball I chucked at him.

I went through about 30 Ultra Balls, and Close to 10 or more Timer Balls, but they all Failed to capture him, and he wound up Killing himself with "Struggle".

Can Anyone Help me, and/or give me some Easy Tips on Catching Terrakion. PLEASE!!! Terrakion is Level 45, and knows: Helping Hand, Retaliate, Rock Slide, and Sacred Sword.

P.S. Also, I'd prefer it if I didn't have to resort to my Master Ball to catch it if at all Possible.
Please help me. Thanks!

You can use false swipe and put him to sleep somehow and use as many ultra balls as needed

You cannot obtain a Cherish Ball in any game. Many event pokemon come in Cherish Balls, but you cannot obtain one to use.

Sleep and Freeze double the catch rate of a pokemon. Paralysis only increases it to 1.5x (Burn and Poison also increase the catch rate by 1.5x, but do NOT use them).

False Swipe is the best move to use when trying to catch a pokemon. The catch rate increases as HP decreases, and because False Swipe leaves 1HP left, it maximizes the catch rate.

Poke Balls have a 1x multiplier. Great Balls have a 1.5x multiplier. Ultra Balls have a 2x multiplier. This means that Ultra Balls are twice as effective as Poke Balls. If used on the first turn of the battle, a Quick Ball has a 5x multiplier (ONLY on the first turn). If used on the 10th turn or later the Timer Ball has a 4x multiplier (1x on first turn, increases each turn until turn 10).

It takes a lot of time and luck to catch a legendary pokemon. Terakion's catch rate is 3 (Pokemon like Patrat have a catch rate of 255) and this means that Terakion is EXTREMELY difficult to catch.
