There are some ways to make the task of catching a Pokemon, slightly less challenging. You could put the Pokemon that you want to capture, to sleep by using moves like hypnosis, and Yawn. You could freeze the Pokemon by using moves such as Ice Beam, and Blizzard. This a rarity though, it is hard to freeze Pokemon, your best bet is to Paralyze the Pokemon that you want to capture with moves like Thunder Wave, or lick. Don't forget that weakening the Pokemon is the best way to capture it, get it's health to red, then put it to sleep, throw an ultraball at the Pokemon, and you might catch it. It also helps if you have the strongest pokeball that you can have at the time, I carry around 80 ultraballs. With all that said, a lof it is luck, so good luck.

Well, the Master Ball has a 100% catch rate, but you should save it for a Pokemon such as Cresselia.

Ultra Balls have a 3X better catch rate than normal Poke Balls. Dusk Balls have a 4X better catch rate than normal Poke Balls when used at night. Using these strong pokeballs will give you a better catch rate, although it's not as effective as the Master Ball.

Weakening the Pokemon is also very effective; it makes them weaker and harder to break free from the pokeball. Just weaken them, using moves that aren't very effective against them, until their HP hits the red zone. Then, inflicting a status effect, such as sleep or paralysis, will make the Pokemon even weaker. Then, just start throwing Ultra Balls and you should have them in no time.

Umm well don't use dusk balls cause at night there catch rate is only 3* so use love balls if pokemon has gender and ulta ball is only 2.5* catch rate so it is still better than a pokeball

Try circling the pokeball on the touch screan without touching the ball.Works sometimestimes.

Guest answered:
Added 25th Sep 2010, ID #357891

The best way is to weaken the pokemon but I would use the ultra ball.

Quick ball for the people who want to get it over and done with.
Nest ball is for the pokemon who hit red zone.
Dusk ball for capturing pokemon in caves or in dark places.
Great Ball just a bit stronger than a pokeball so I wouldn't use it.
Poke ball your boreding old ball it for the weakest pokemon you can find.
Heal Ball for healing the pokemon quicker.
Luxury Ball is for capturing pokemon you want to befriend quicker.
Master ball the rarest and the most best poke ball used for capturing the best of pokemon.
Net ball use it on water types and bug types.
Park ball only for pal park.
Repeat ball if you are trying to capture a pokemon you already have use it.
Safai ball used in the Great Marsh.
Timer ball use it every ten turns in a wild pokemon battle.
Ultra ball I like this ball the best out of the cheapest balls, Its got a 2x chance of capturing pokemon.
Premier ball just a better ball then the pokeball (I haven't used one yet so yea).
Dive ball if you are underwater your have a 3.5 time chance of capturing the pokemon.

Hope I helped you.

My way of catching pokemon is to wait til night.
Then buy HEAPS of dusk balls (depending on what pokemon).
Bring a lvl 100 (They seem to kind of intimidate the lower lvls)
In battle: (I got this cool smeargle I use for catching, It has false swipe(1 hp), mean look(NO running for them), recover and spore(sleep)
Make it sleep! Paralysis can't be ridden of unless they got safeguard, Getting it frozen may kill it, burning and poisoning will kill it at sometime.(I would be best to use spore cuz it has better accuracy)
Get false swipe(Sadly it aint gonna work on ghost DSmile
Now the pokemon has 1 hp and sleep!
Now use your dusk balls!
I used this technique to catch mesprit and cressilia and abra!!!!

You got an pokétch app for mesprit where he is, when u find him you have to make sure he doesn't flee because after the first turn it flees! So you will need a pokemon with "mean look" or something like that, when he can't flee anymore use ultra balls.
Good luck.

Okay. Pokemon catch rates are all math. The formula goes as follows:
Catch= (((3 x Max HP - 2 x Current HP) x Catch Rate x Pokeball Bonus) / (3 x Max HP)) x Status Condition Bonus

The catch rate of the Pokemon depends on the Pokemon. For example, the catch rate of Zapdos is 3, while the catch rate of Pidgey is 255.

Use a Pokemon that has the move false wipe.

False wipe:
A restrained attack that prevents the foe from fainting. The target is left with at least 1 HP.

This is enough to catch normal Pokemon with ultra balls very easy.

Use Fasel wipe in combination with sleep or paralyzing and it will be much and much easier.

Idiots you press aba in succession while the ball glows. Hard, but raises the catch rate by 80 percent.same goes for circling the pokeball without touching it 3 times.

I simultaneously press the left trigger and the right trigger of the ds. Before I battle a legendary Pokemon, I save the game. Hope this helps.
