You can just use 1 timer ball to catch them
When you fight them,don't use any moves,potion,or whatever you just wait until its a very long time battle,then you can just trow a timer ball after that

I had the WORST TIME catching virizion. Stock up on ultra balls, timer balls, and dusk balls. And one of the most important moves to have is false swipe. This leaves the pokemon you are trying to catch with at least 1 hp. Once you get it down to 1 hp then freeze it or put it to sleep or even just paralyze it (this is what I did). Start throwing ultra balls or dusk balls. After throwing a bunch, switch to timer balls. I literally caught it with my last timer ball. I hope this helps!

The best thing I can offer you in ways of help is fight it till it gets in red, if you have a 42+ Grass type like Serperior this works best. Start with Leaf Blade, then Leaf Tornado, then Giga Drain accordingly. and pack a TON of Hyper Potions at least 10+. And roughly 30+ Ultra Balls.

Now the trick to this is draw out the fight, it worked for me against both Virizion and Cobalion. Just like your Pokemon, they have limited PP Moves this will be seen when you go to draw the fight out and they start doing nothing but using Helping Hand. KEEP THEM IN THE RED. You MUST keep them in the Red portion of the health bar while you're doing this, ensure your Pokemon can tank the damage being dealt. Obviously save your game before fighting this Pokemon, after that's done I'll explain in detail the fight process.

If you can't seem to get it to catch, just hold it in it's Read Health, False Swipe is best, OR get in the red and put it to sleep, USE ULTRA BALLS. Nothing else will work. Once it's in the red and begins to Panic it will use Helping Hand OVER AND OVER AND OVER again, start throwing Ultra Balls at that point. After a bit it should get tired enough to take a hint and stay in the ball! ^^
