Down + B when catching a pokemon. Who does it?

I shake my fist along with the Pokeball and some times it works.

I hold A + B for some reason...

I always do Up + B, and then depending on my mood, I'll either do some line tracing on the bottom screen, or some other button combinations after the ball is thrown. I know it doesn't do anything, but it's a good luck ritual by this point.

It would have been funny if it did something.

As a side note: Any of you that also have White2, do you, like me, start to think about Zelda when hearing the music in White Treehollow?

I always do Up+A, but then hold Down+A when the ball starts to fall.

I always do it when I throw my masterball at pokemon and it works 100%

I never did down + B. My method has always varied from gen to gen, though. Right now, it's hold A when the ball opens, hold B when it closes, shake the DS when the ball shakes, pull the DS toward me after the third shake. That shaking and pulling feels especially useful on the 3DS, actually.

Back in Sapphire I stumbled across Regice unprepared and stupidly went into battle. I had only a few Pokeballs. I tossed a single Pokeball at it at full health, mashing down + B while it was in the air, and captured it.

I know that was as lucky as winning the lottery, but because of that I've been mashing down + B for over a decade.
