Capturing Mewtwo - outrageously easy

#1IcyngLzPosted 11/10/2013 1:51:44 PM
Hello everyone!

I just came here to complain a bit about how extremely absurdly easy it was for me to capture mewtwo. In poké-red we would plan the battle way ahead in order to execute the plan to perfection... that was fun, though complicated. So... In poké-X I entered the Unknown Cave and saw Mewtwo, went back to the poké-center, chose my best 6 and found my way back into the cave. I entered there and used the capture lv 2 O. Power "who knows, right?". Battle begin, I think "I'll try a quick ball, probably won't work, but... wth". To my surprise I caught Mewtwo without even making a single move.

I mean, I know the game is supposed to be more "player friendly" but... It just seems way too easy these days.

That's about it. Anyone else has had the same impression?

No? Playing blue when I was a kid it didn't seem hard at all. Just wail on him and hope your Ultra Balls worked when he got low. It worked eventually.

Now try again about a hundred times. You'll see it's not that easy.

You got lucky. Mewtwo has a catch rate of 3, which is the lowest in any of the games.

A few weeks back I spent over 35 balls, 80% of which were Ultra and/or Timer Balls, trying to catch a Metang, which also has a CR of 3.

I caught it on a random Quick Ball really late in the battle.

Did it ever occur to you that maybe you were just lucky?

Absolutely terrible.

And hope your Box wasn't full already.

It might have just been me, but Mewtwo was always an incredibly easy catch.

Chuck 5 Ultra Balls, and if none of those work, Master Ball it up. That's pretty much all it's good for in the originals.

Sounds like my kind of gameplay
