Since "critical capture", the myth is pretty much obsolete to me.

Down + A here

I used to do it all the time on r/b/y and g/s/c because I thought it worked. After having found out it doesn't work, I still do it out of habit.

I dont believe in that anymore, but i do sometimes press "A>B>Up" or "A>B>Down" (Not at the same time, but in quick succession), that is more on the OCD-"side" though.

I always taps A while catching based on habit.

Got to say I'm getting less doing it when catching my Darumaka and Sandile(prolly cuz multitasking).
People who like Froslass and/or Swampert just like I do: 4

Even though I've known it doesn't work for years, since doing it in Red/Blue/Yellow it has become a habit. I do it less often now, though.
