Would you rejoice if pokemon can be caught after they faint?

I'm sick of carrying around a false swiper in addition to a HM/Fly slave.

I voted yes but now that I think about it, that would probably make things incredibly too easy. Trying to keep a pokemon alive while trying to catch it is one of the staple challenges of pokemon. I guess it wouldn't hurt if you had one last chance to throw a pokeball after they faint with some better odds for success but if you fail, the pokemon flees.

I think it would make the game a little too easy, but at the same time it would make legendary Pokemon less of a tedious bore.

It makes no sense that you can't catch them after they faint. I mean, where are they gonna go? It should be easiest when they're knocked out cold.

"I could care less" means you care right now.
The proper phrase is "I couldn't care less."

This would be perfect for that runaway shiny you crit.

First thought was ok, second through was it would be annoying during all of those random battles to have to say "no" to attempting to catch them, third thought is meh, idk...

They allowed you to reset legendaries the past 2 gens, so what is the big deal with KO-ing a legendary with a crit now? And who uses moves that CAN crit-kill a legendary nowadays? Doesn't everyone else use a Foresight / False Swipe / Spore Smeargle?

It would completely take the fun out of catching a Pokemon. I don't care how nonsensical or unrealistic it is.

I voted yes but only if you only have one last chance. Otherwise it would be way to easy.

I voted yes, but at the same time no.

I mean.. It would be too easy. What would be the point of having anything besides a Pokeball or Luxury ball?
