Having a hard time catching Entei and Raikou

#1Riggs55Posted 3/17/2010 11:29:59 AM
I need some tips I have never really cared about catching many of the roaming Pokemon until this game and I need some advice on getting them.

I go back and forth between a town and route, checking the map all the time till they're on the route, but people have better ways. I recommend a quick ball, or just trying to do a little damage or status condition each turn because any damage on them stays on them.

either use masterballs to catch or use something like mean look to make sure they dont flee

Try getting a pokemon that prevents running (there should be a ability for it).

Moo went the cow as I slapped it. Rawr went the dragon as it owned me.
I got nothing on this world, where it will go? Only time will tell.

Does Mean Look have a TM?

trapinch has a ability that stops enemies from running, you could also get a fast pokemon with mean look and hope your fast enough to use it before it runs away.

Dugtrio with Arena Trap or Gengar with Mean Look and Hypnosis are your best bets. I successfully caught both last night by using a Mean Look/Hypnosis Gengar. Level 39 is ideal, as using a Repel, Super Repel, or Max Repel will keep all Pokemon of a lower level for appearing, meaning you will only find Entei and Raikou.

Ideally, you'll want to spam flying to a town such as Cherrygrove or Mahogany and waiting for them to be two routes away. Ideally, if you move to the route between you and your target, it will move to you and be an easy find.

If hunting at night, Dusk Balls are highly effective. Otherwise, stick to Quick Balls, Ultra Balls, Heavy Balls, and Fast Balls.

Either case is possible.
