How am I supposed to catch Moltres?

I'm not using fly. I'm not entering Lumiose city...I'm biking around trying to reach him, and each time I enter a new zone, he enters a new zone. It is literally impossible to be in the same area with him, despite doing everything that google search is telling me to do.

Luck. Just go about your daily business. I usually find my bird once a day.

My daily business involves breeding, and lots of it. I would never run across him in the wild.

Doesn't do anything if he's not in the zone with you..

I don't don't if the runners work the way they used to, but you can find an area where the map change triggers and just cross the map over and over until its in your area, use a repel, and force the encounter.

Don't chase it, let it come to you.

Without fly, its rather hard. Next best thing is to just breed like you been doing and just hope he appears on your breeding route.

If that gets too annoying, youll have to fly. Select a city and fly to it over and over again until the bird is on a route next to your town. Meet it 12 times and it runs off to Sea Spirits Den.

WARNING: Once there, it WILL NOT have an overworld spirit like other legendaries. Taking a few steps into the cave will start the battle. SAVE OUTSIDE THE CAVE OR RIGHT AS YOU ENTER.

Do those things and you got your bird.

If I sit in one spot, he sits in one spot. If I move forward one zone, he moves forward. If I fly, he moves somewhere randomly. If I leave a zone and come back to it right a way, he stays in the same spot. There is nothing I'm able to do to get close to this stupid bird.

Buy a ton of max repels, go to Santalune City.

Use repels, and bike back n forth between Santalune and route 4. Ride around in the flowers for a few seconds then back to town n repeat.

Took me about half an hour to encounter Moltres 8 times. Oh, and the 1st pokemon in your party has to be under level 65, otherwise it will repel the bird.

Find a route that connects to another route. Cross between them several times, check each time to see if the bird has entered your route. It will eventually, it might take several tries though. Make sure the routes have grass nearby, and any HMs necessary.
