Remember the days when 20-somethings didn't whine about kids not remembering things from when they were kids? Young adults might have no clue what I'm talking about.
I wasn't aware I was complaining. How can I complain about someone not being old enough to experience something? That's not their fault. I'm a grown adult I've got better things to do then act like an ass on the internet.
The pokeball capture method has many different ways of working I see. Someone earlier said it was moronic but if anything its an old habit that's hard to break. I know it doesn't do anything to hold buttons when capturing Pokemon but I swear it makes me feel more confident about my success rate. It may just be luck and superstition but when I obtain the rarer Pokemon each generation it always feels like it helps.
Though I do believe that the button holding actually worked. Or at least when I pressed LEFT + B or something like that, I can't remember what it was exactly anymore, I had a 100% capture rate. I caught dozens of Mewtwos, Articunos, Zapdoses and Moltreses without a single failure, at full health, using that method. If the method didn't work... Well, I experienced something with a REALLY low probability. To me, it wasn't a 'rumor', but rather a fact that I myself had confirmed. Of course, there is the chance that it was all just a chain of very unlikely coincidences. I don't do it anymore, of course, since it hasn't worked after Generation I.
But yeah, I remember the Mew-under-the-truck thing, too. Good times, good times, when mysteries still existed.
