The Best Way To Catch Legendary Pokemon hints and tips for Pokemon Crystal

The Best Way To Catch Legendary Pokemon

Lower the Legendary Pokemon's HP to almost nothing. Next, use a move that would make the Legendary Pokemon Fall Asleep. After that, throw Ultra Balls at the Legendary Pokemon.

If the Legendary Pokemon wakes up, make it fall back asleep and continue to through Ultra Balls.

The best way to catch legendary pokemon for VBA and DeSMumE Users only to play Pokemon roms is -

1.First lower pokemon's Health.
2.Try using a move that paralyzes it or makes it sleep.
3. The Best moves - For sleeping - (Yawn, sleep powder- These do not miss often like hypnosis...)
4.For Paralyze - Thunder wave, Stun spore,Glare...).
5.Last step but not the least is - Once you have done the steps above...
6.The most IMPORTANT thing you have to do is save the game at that moment by pressing SHIFT + F2 or any other F's on the keyboard till F10.
7.Then use only one ultra ball first . See whether if it fails or catches the pokemon .
8.If doesn't don't think that you won't be able to catch it !
9.All you have to do is press only F2 (not SHIFT + F2 ! , Thats only to save , not Load !) and lo ! You have the save where you had to make the attempt before !
9.So , if you fail to catch , just keep pressing F2 again and again and throw your ultra ball ! It may need a lot of attempts .
10. But you will catch it sooner or later , i guarantee it ! Coz i have tried that ! It took a lotta attempts for me too but i caught them . And i also caught some very quickly and some in the first attempt !

So its all your luck......
