I've done it twice. The first one I was just chucking balls at it but it burned itself on my Talonflame so I had to masterball it the turn before it died, the other one I just chucked a dusk ball and caught it instantly.

well you could always accidently run away from it. thats what I did

but is the catch rate really that low? encountered 2 today. First was above and the next in one quick ball

Yeah. It's the only non-legendary pokemon line to have any CR of 3 in it.

Most legendaries are higher than 3 even. The last cover ones to be 3, aside from Rayquaza and Giratina (they don't count) were Ho-oh and Lugia. Groudon and Kyogre were 5, Palkia/Dialga were 30, and the last two gens sported some 45's.

ah then I guess I was lucky with my second shiny metang lol guess karma was nice for the loss of my first

Or a Graveler. They always know Self-Destruct or Explosion. ALWAYS.
i hate graveler, especially shiny, so much i wouldn't even bother. if my first ball break, and it explodes... oh well -shrug-

Seriously, why would you even bother going into the Safari without one? Nobody "just goes in to check what's there" without intending to capture things.
i have ditto safari and 100 friends on my list. yes. i do go just to check because i have no idea what on half of them OTL

Only non-legendaries to have a catch rate of 3 are the Beldum line
wah, really? i got metang and trade it to someone who want one and caught it in two balls at full health while asleep... hahaha

on topic: i would just put to sleep with venusaur -u-

25 Ultra Balls isn't too bad. You can probably get it with that.

I always have a Pokémon with Leech Seed and Sleep Powder with me, though.

I went through 30 Masterballs, 10 Timer Balls, and 6 Quick alls (caught it on the sixth) trying to get a Metang a few weeks back.

Only non-legendaries to have a catch rate of 3 are the Beldum line

So tell me how did it escape from 30 masterballs?

Sorry, Ultraballs.
