While it explodes
You will never know me... You are lost...and scared.
You know what I allow you to know... You're just a puppet.

Hold A as the ball closes, PRESS IT HARDER with ever shake, then do a fist pump when it works.

Free hand makes a weird crushing motion in every step

You need an "Other" option.

Press and hold A when ball opens -> press and hold B (while still holding A) when ball closes -> shake system in time with the Pokeball shaking.

Throw the ball. If the target escapes...throw it again. Rinse and repeat...

I actually (dead serious here if it's a Pokemon I want) throw the Pokéball mimicking my trainers actions

I generally avert my eyes and just listen.
Eldritch abominations from beyond the edge of the planes are easily intimidated.
However, they can be very intimidating themselves.
