I don't believe in it anymore, yet I still do it out of habit.

I used to do it all the time on r/b/y and g/s/c because I thought it worked. After having found out it doesn't work, I still do it out of habit.

It actually DOES in Gen 1 (and maybe Gen 2?), surprisingly enough.

button presses advance the RNG by a certain amount or something, which if you're using tool assisted games is excellent as it can guarantee you a capture.

This is obviously next to useless for people who DON'T use TAS runs, but hey!

That said, I practically started the down and B rumour in my school when I was a kid.

Only in difficult captures, I do it in desperation.
