Topic... why can't I CATCH a fish. I can't get past "It got away" I put the rod in the water, sometimes they bite, they always get off the hook.

OOOHH ok. Whenever it says "It's a bite", you press A. Sometimes, dots "..." will appear, and you simply wait until it says "You've got a nibble" or something like that and then press A. Don't press it too early or too late.

It'll say "Oh! A bite!". That's when you press A. Then it'll go back to the dots and say "Oh! A bite!" again. Press A until it says "A Pokemon's on the hook!"
Wait..... so if I'm a noob, and a noob is better than nobody, and nobody's perfect..... I'm better than perfect?

You just have to tap the button when it prompts you. Do NOT mash, etc. as it will just say "It got away"
