Try to weaken it and/or put it to sleep/paralize it.this will help.plus you should use at least an ultra ball if not a master ball.

What tayven said.

You don't appear to have any Pokemon with sleep moves, but I recommend you try and get one, if you can. That would help.

Stock up with a lot of Ultra Balls. You technically can catch Articuno with a Pokeball, but it is extremely difficult.

We didn't need quite that much information on your team, but no problem.

To catch Articuno, you're best to reduce his health down to the red (Ideally, 1HP, but that's tricky to get to without a high level Raticate with Super Fang in this generation), and inflict a non-damaging Status change like Paralysis, or Sleep. Sleep gives you the best chance (Alongside Freeze, which Articuno is immune to).

Once you've done that, just throw the strongest Pokeballs you have. Eventually, he'll go into one.

Just catch an oddish and evolve it in a vileplume and keep its sleep powder attack and use it on articuno then weaken it and throw ultra balls(most recommended after master ball) eventually you'll catch it

Ideally, you should deplete Articuno's HP as much as you can, then put it to sleep (Freezing won't work, as Articuno's an Ice-type.) A good move to use to drop HP would be Raticate's Super Fang.
