I'm sorry about complaining, but I hate my luck with legendaries. I was trying to catch Rayquaza in Emerald until it struggled itself to death. And the last ball I threw at it shook three times, too. This forced me to use my Master Ball. And I still haven't encountered Latios yet.

I don't think there's a way to get a Scyther in Emerald without trading. I don't have the cables, nor the Wireless things.
And I saved, I just got fed up with Rayquaza killing itself ten times.
Same deal with Kyogre, I wasted 2 hours trying to catch it because it kept Double Edging itself into oblivion, but I actually caught it after enough patience. --- "I love going on message boards and complaining about games I've never played!" - Francis, Super Paper Mario
Try horn drill or sheer cold, I think they decrease the catch rate of the pokemon. But the accuracy is only 30 so it may take time to hit --- Thunder, Cavs, MCFC, Redskins Unofficial Meleotta of the Pokemon X board
