You receive the Silver Wing after saving Goldenrod Radio Tower from Team Rocket, the manager gives it to you.

And yes, you can catch Lugia with any ball you want, Ultra Balls are also the best balls in the game beside the Master Ball, too, so yeah. You'll need to weaken it and maybe cause some status problems on it first though, of course.

Hope this helps,

What do I need to pair with the silver wing and where do I find it
Guest said: 4th Oct 2016 | REPORT
You need to win 7 gym before you can enter the tower and you need to go first to the photo guy and get the team rocket suit

I beat the tower and still didnt get the silver wing
InvertAlpha answered:

1. You get the Silver Wing by defeating Team Rocket at the Goldenrod City Radio Tower.

2. Yes it is possible to catch Lugia in an Ultra Ball. You can catch him in any ball, like a Poke Ball (which is near impossible due to him being a legendary Pokemon)

Dudeguy96 answered:

1.The Silver Wing is obtained from the Goldenrod Radio Tower Manager after saving him from Team Rocket. 2.Yes, it is possible to catch Lugia in any type of pokeball. I would know because I caught it in a regular pokeball. However, it took me appr. 12 resets and about 300 pokeballs, so pokeballs are not recommended. I would prefer ultra balls, but someone bet me I coudn't catch it in a pokeball. Even with Ultra balls, you want to get it's health down as low as possible and inflict it with a status condition, preferably paralysis or freeze.

Yaaaaaa I kinda think it's possible but I didnt have the patience to catch it with a poke ball so I used a master ball tho I did try it 20 times and still failed while using ultra balls the entire time. And the silver wign is goten in the radio tower. Dude guy nice job catching Lugia like that it's almost impossible

You go in the goldenrod tunnel then go to the area with the guy who takes a picture of you in a different uniform. a rocket grunt will be there and will give you a rocket uniform to get past the grunt in the radio tower.
Guest said: 1st Sep 2010 | REPORT
go to one of the underground tunnels in goldenrod and you'll find some team rocket suits. you'll wear one and get past. the red haired dude (your rival) will blow your cover by accident somewhere in the radio tower.

where is the underground tunnels in goldenrod?
Guest answered:

i still need help getting silver wing

Guest answered:

to get the the silver wing u get it by defeating team rocket in the goldenrod radio tower thigy hold up! u cant catch lugia yet u then have to defeat the kimono girls just to let u know zuki or yuki has umbreon level 37 all the kimono girls have an evolved form of eevee once u got them all(defeated) u then go to whirly islands check every one of them see if lugia there if he isnt in any then most likely u didnt it wrong

Guest answered:

you can find whirl island's map I think on serribi

Guest answered:

at first i coudn't cath lugia with a heavy ball!
but you have to stay to the rocks and then the first island is where lugia.

Guest answered:

When i got to Lugia i caught it with a quick ball after using about 4 ultra balls and 3 heavy balls. this proves that you dont need the master ball. You get the silver wing after defeating team Rocket at the radio tower. Also you need the. Lugias moves are Rain Dance, Hydro Pump, Aeroblast, and extrasensory. If you want my advice save your game before battling Lugia!

Guest answered:

I need helpi already beat the whole radio tower.

Guest answered:

To get to and catch Lugia you need:

>Silver Wing ( Obtained from beating Team Rocket at the GoldenRod City Radio Tower. )

>Obtained the tidal bell from beating all five kimono girls

>Have all 8 gym badges

>The move whirlwind

The best way to catch him is to use a paralyzing move after getting his HP as low as possible. Do NOT use the masterball! Instead have Kurt make you a heavy ball or fast ball. They both have equal usefullness. Save your Master Ball for Raikou or Suicune, use Suicune for speed and Raikou for strength. Hope this helps - Eternity

Guest answered:

How about I sold the silver wing, can I get 1 back ??

Guest answered:

You fools use the premier ball.... :0

Guest answered:

No I don't think you can get it back, and isn't it a KEY item. If it is you shouln't be able to sell it maybe your game glitched.

Guest answered:

You all should try dusk balls, they are really effective against Pokemon that you find underground. Save your masterballs for toughies like ho-oh and the three dogs.

The dogs are so easy to catch tho.
Guest answered:

If you want to use a fast ball if you have one have kurt make you one

Fina_12 answered:

Try catching Lugia in a Pokeball. ;)
