I ran into a lvl 28 Golden Geodude in a horde

I am worried all the other geodudes will use magnitude and kill it

Can i catch it first try with an ultra ball or should I not risk it and use my masterball?

I'm afraid you can't throw a ball till the others faint.

You can't catch it if the rest are there still. The other 4 have to be koed first.

I would use the masterball. Situations like this are probably the best time to use it.

Pick the other ones off one by one and hope that they don't kill it. Let us know how it goes. :|

You're pretty much stuck taking a gamble. Take them out one by one (except the one in the bottom left on the attack screen) and pray to the RNG gods that they don't take it out.
