The Lottery is about Pokemon ID Numbers, not the Pokemon themselves. Each person has a different ID Number. The more Pokemon you obtain through Trade, the higher the chance of winning he Lottery.

Hope this helps!

You do not need a Master Ball to catch Articuno, I haven't used a Master Ball in maybe 10 years (and dozens of play thoughs of various versions).

The Lottery is based on ID numbers. Pokemon you catch will have only one ID number, to get Pokemon with different ID numbers, you must trade. In game trades work, but it would be better to trade with as many other people as possible. Do not trade Pokemon you recieve in trades. I suggest using the GTS and trying to trade a Skarmory for a Skarmory, a Rattata for a Rattata, or something like that. It also works if you migrate Pokemon from third generation games.

Its not certain Pokemon you need it is certain Pokemon Trainer ID.

Every time you recieve a Pokemon through trade, that Pokemon has a different ID from the rest of yours.

The more you trade with other people, in-game and wifi, the more of a chance you have winning the lottery and the masterball.

Its a trainer I.D. You need. Try everyday and good luck.

You can easily catch one without it too.
