Easier legendary dogs capture cheat for Pokemon Heart Gold

Easier legendary dogs capture

To do this, you need one of the following:

1. Get a diglett
1.1. to do this (while still only in Johto), fly to the Safari Zone, and then leave that area. a bit south of it, there is a patch of grass. you will eventually find a diglett (around level 20)
2. train it to level 39
2.1. By now it should be dugtrio.
2.2 make sure it knows Magnitude and Sucker Punch (should have those 2 when you catch it)
3. Buy A LOT of repels (any type will work) and ultra balls (and other balls, i suggest Dusk Balls from Blackthorn if you do this at night)
4. Fly to either Violet, Mahogany, or Eruktec (please forgive my spelling of the city names) (not required but preferred location)
5. track the legendary dog(s) you want, having the dugtrio on top of your party.
6. when you are on the same route as one of the dogs, use a repel. move around in the grass and the pokemon you meet first (assuming repel is still active) will always be a legendary dog

this has been tested several times and it works. the repels are needed to make finding the dog easier, since except for the mt. silver area, you will not find pokemon in the wild over level 39 (which is the level of your dugtrio)

more to know:
1. use magnitude the 1st time, and if their HP is high enough, use again, but i suggest sucker punch. Each time you hurt the dog but are unsuccessful in capturing it, save the game. this is to ensure you don't kill the dog

On whoever wrote the 6th comment... Did you beat the elite four\lance + the gym leaders their second time? That's another 21 battles for you, no need to thank me.

Get something like a crobat (im willing to migrate one level 75 for a good pokemon)and use mean look then teach it false swipe if it can learn that move and then whittle down it's hp and throw timer balls at it if youve battle it for heck of a long time

i agree with the 10 coment but you shouldnt just get a haunter you should get a really fast pokemon if it runs away before you can use mean look

why dont u get a haunter and teach it mean look and hypnosis? use mean look first because he can run away even while sleeping lol idk how haha then just hurt him while he is asleep and catch him.

P.S its easier to catch them while they sleep

One important thing that was left out is that you must make sure the diglett has the arena trap ability otherwise this doesn't work.
