View Full Version : Yellow Version Moltres

I don't need help finding him, I know where he is. I need to know how to catch him. I have 10 ultra balls with me. Is that even enough? I caught Articuno with 3, and Zapdos with 1! I just can't seem to catch him. I keep missing him with the Ultra Balls, and it gets me really frustrated. I had him down to 1 HP and he was Paralyzed and i still couldn't catch him. Does anyone have any easier ways to catch him? Thanks!

wrong board...

anyways try putting him to sleep. sleep is better than paralysis, and just in case buy more ultra balls.

you're doing good just keep trying.

Yeah, those legends are wild.

MY ADViCE = Keep Trying :tongue:! If you can make him sleep, that's good.

Oh yes... You must also be aware that it is your own evil doings that have brought about this dreaded carnival's visit .... All of the sins and hatred you have cast during your life... have whipped and spun into form... the form of one, one who leads this gruesome parade of pain into your life into your life... One Known ONLY as...THE RiNGMASTER

I always take at least 50 ultra balls, but I suppose thats just me.
Ultra balls are quite expensive aswell.

50???:eek: For a legendary I have 25-30 ultra balls.

Well, i caught Moltres with around 7 Ultra ball's, but take around 20 just in case.

I guess I have expensive tastes.

Meh, it usually takes me ten. Just keep trying. I don't even know the chances of a Pokéball completely MISSING the target (as they did in RBY) so I can't give you an exact percentage...

Sleep and Freeze work best.

Actually, I've found instead of having them at red, it's easier to have it in yellow...but still close to red. But...maybe I've just had a stroke of luck.

you should freez him because its jus like it going to sleep but lasts a lot longer.I always take 30 or more to a legendary and i save infront of it.

It's been over a month. I'm sure he's managed to capture it by now.

Freezing is hard and it is a matter of luck. It would have fainted by the time you freeze it, because it is eaither such a strong pokemon it's ice attacks annialate the flying motres, or the fire bird will simply melt the ice pokemon to 0 hp.

It works to freeze, but it's a very low chance.
If anything, put it to sleep. It doesn't have any threating attacks to OHKO a grass Pokemon with, so something like that should work. The average amount of balls it'll take is between 5 and 20, and that's for any legend.

If you have Articuno,keep hitting him on Icebeam till he freeze. If he don't,reset it and try again. The chance of frezzing him is high in my opnion and it lowers 1/3 his hp.
