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.

If incounter chansey make save first then back the game throw safarey ball if she is run away ,go load state find the load that you incounter chansey, repeat this antel you get chansey dsame us tauros
Guest said: 12th Jul 2018 | REPORT
You can’t save before encountering in the Safari Zone. If you were to save after every encounter, the next encounter would be different. For example, if you saved the game and encountered Chansey, and it flees, when you reset the game it’s highly low chance to encounter it again.

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.


Guest answered: Added 18th Jun 2010, ID #332800

i found a special way to get them that allways works you use bait twice then a rock then a pokeball hope it helps

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.
Guest said: 2nd Jul 2014 | REPORT
You also have 4% chance of running into Tauros in Area 3

Guest said: 14th Dec 2016 | REPORT
There is a technique
Save the game as soon as u see chansey
Then try catching it again and again use only Safari balls
(Load game when chansey runs away)

dradonair venonat tourose chancy paras parasite nidoran nidorina nidoran(pink) nidorino doduo kangaskhan rhihorn and i think there is more so try end find them

Guest answered: Added 8th Oct 2010, ID #359872

I finally caught a Tauros in area3 thx just used bait then pokeballs from there

Guest answered: Added 3rd Nov 2011, ID #452811

I also caught a tauros in area 2 by just using rock bait and safari ball

Guest answered: Added 7th Apr 2012, ID #496210

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.

Guest answered: Added 18th Jul 2012, ID #523850

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.

Guest answered: Added 29th Nov 2013, ID #609214

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

If you are using an emulator, then save the game and try out various combination

Guest answered: Added 18th May 2016, ID #679554

My answer to your problems use gba that is not the free version then now find a chansey in Pokemon fire red or leaf green in the safari zone then after that if you found it save it on the button where placed at the upper one and click save then throw a ball if it miss and fled load again where you save the game

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
