I threw around 30 ultra balls at ho-oh. It was frozen and had like 1% HP left, but no luck. He unfroze and destroyed my pokemon. I reset and started the game again. I lowered its hp to 3% and threw a pokeball...Guess what happened. No joke. This stuff happens a lot for me for some reason. I caughty atleast 5 legendaries with a pokeball out of luck.

According to

http://www.dragonflycave.com/capture.aspx

There's a 1.6% chance of catching Ho-Oh with a pokeball (or any type of pokeball with a catch rate of 1), IF you have him down to 1 HP, and asleep. It could take 63 balls on average to catch him apparently.

I made a Pokemon Catch Calculator based on the information I got from Bulbapedia.

Pokemon: Ho-oh
Health: 1%
Status: Sleeping or Frozen

Catch probability (With Level Ball (maxed out)): 18.45%
Catch probability (With Timer Ball (maxed out)): 9.22%
Catch probability (With Ultra Ball): 4.67%
Catch probability (With Poke Ball): 2.31%

Should take an average of 23 ultraballs, according to dragonflycave, if Ho-Oh is frozen and has 1HP left.

Is it weird that I knew exactly what this meant?
