Dear Horrible Pokeball Catch Rate.

#1amorgan66Posted 3/26/2010 1:05:16 AM
Please Gamefreak we all beg of you, figure out something new for ball catch rates.

Example
Level 40 False Swiped & Paralyzed Suicune

45 Ultra Balls
15 Dusk Balls
4 Quick Balls
11 Great Balls
3 Heavy Balls
2 Friend Balls
3 Heal Balls

Out of sheer lol and desperation I throw a Lure Ball and bam I caught Suicune.

As of now I have 13 Regular Pokeballs and 4 Net balls left.

I agree. The catching thing should be some sort of mini game where you have to time something. And the timing gets easier the lower their hp is, or something like that. What comes to mind is the reloading mechanism in Gears of War, if you've ever played that.

Too bad Suicune has a catch rate comparable to that of Beldum. If it was 30 (like Dialga/Palkia), I'd understand, but it's not.

I think the whole point is that catch rates of 3 are totally ridiculous and not fun for anyone.

--Basically, this. Worse on things that run.

Suicune isn't really that good for in-game anyways...

Some people miss the point stupidly. It's not about being good or bad or useful or not. It's about being so absurdly difficult to obtain as to bring far more frustration than they would be worth, even if they WERE good.

How about 1 HP, sleeping, level 35 Latias? Love Balls barely wiggle. I finally caught it with a quick ball, but it seemed that love balls don't work at all.
