How do I catch Lugia?

  1. I have spent hours trying to catch Lugia. It seems no matter what I do I cannot catch him. I've had him down to as little HP as possible, have him asleep and used both Ultra Balls and Heavy Balls but he always breaks free. I used my Master Ball on Ho-Oh so using that is not an option. Is there anything I can do to catch him without using a Master Ball as nothing seems to be working?

  1. First, you can lower any monster's hp to 1 if you use the attack False Swipe as it never kills a monster.

    Second the three best balls i can reccomend would be
    Heavy balls,
    Level balls (if your monsters are higher level than Lugia, and they work even better if every monster in your entire team is higher level than the target ),
    and Ultra balls as possible.

    Other than that all you can really do is practice and if you run out of balls soft reset and try again.

  1. There is also a way to increase the catch rate of a ball. As you throw the ball (dosn't matter what ball.) if you hold down A & B at the same time it is said to increase the catch rate. Hope this helps!

  2. Any buttons you press, no matter how much you want them to will NOT make a difference. A really useful tactic is to paralyze it. Once paralyzed, pokemon become a LOT easier to catch. Other than that, lower its HP into the red and keep trying.

  5. What I did to catch it is using hypnosis weakining it a little with a fire type, and using a ultra ball (used my master ball on ho-oh yo).
