It has never worked. It was just stupid fan gossip from the Red/Blue/Yellow days. I used to believe it back then, but I haven't since Ruby/Sapphire as by then I realised how the games actually worked.
If you knew how they worked then you would know button presses effect RNG
Posible, but any button press would only advance the RNG to the next frame, the odds of capture would never actually improve. --- We shall rise again to start anew. White FC: 0862-2660-4156 / 3DS FC: 2492-4470-1418 / White 2 FC: 4556-7836-2644
I finally trained myself to stop holding any buttons and pretending it worked with Platinum or SoulSilver I think lol. It felt so weird after doing it for so long....since Red & Blue I think haha. --- Gutalala Sudalala ONE PIECE, IT EXISTS! - The Great Pirate, Edward Newgate "Whitebeard"
