So, I was playing Pokemon White today, and I think I may have had my most epic capture to date.

I was in the Giant Chasm, ready to capture Kyurem:



Yes, that's a level 75 legendary alien dragon.

I started the battle, had one of my pokemon use Will-O-Wisp to burn him, and it got beaten in one hit.

I sent out my next pokemon, and just for fun, threw a normal Pokeball at him.

*wiggle*
*wiggle*
*wiggle*
*click*

Me:


Oh, and to top it off? When I got back to the Pokemon Center, I found out that he had given me Pokerus as well (the best STD ever).

Anyone else have an epic capture moment like that?

Mewtwo in the original Yellow version. Brought a random Jigglypuff and put it to sleep (full health) 3 Ultra Balls later and he was mine. Most recently caught a Volcarona with a few net balls.

I pegged all three birds, Articuno, Zapdos and Moltres, along with Mewtwo and freaking KENGASKAN!! in one go with regular poke and safari balls. Boo...yeah.

Probably in Pokemon Blue, my first ever legendary catch. Got a Zapdos with my last poke ball. It was pretty sweet considering I had not yet learned to save before fighting legendaries.

Ah yes, the roaming legendaries. I remember them, WAAAY back in Gold, when they were totally new. Imagine MY surprise when I was running around in a random-ass patch of grass, only to stumble upon a Raikou.

Double-takes did insue.

I actually have a similar story with Kyurem. I caught Kyurem in five turns, with two attacks, two healing items, and a turn of throwing an Ultra Ball. It's not quite as epic, but it made me happy.

The best part was I triggered the event by accident. I was just trying to grind a Vullaby into a Mandibuzz and catch an extra Ditto, I found the spot to start the event, and then went and caught him. BEST. DISTRACTION. EVER.

(Just look at the first couple seconds, I unfortunately couldn't find just a video of that. The rest of the video is a Youtube poop.)

In Pokemon Ruby, I caught Regirock with a pokeball after I think 3 turns. He was in the orange and my friend had bet me lunch that it wouldn't catch. I dont know why I took the bet, but I'm glad I did!

Fucking Net Ball for the new Fire/Bug lvl 70 thing. Always forget that Net Balls are good for Bug, instead of just Water.

But my best?

Quick Ball Zapdos in D/P/P.

I was playing around with a loose tooth trying to catch Rayquaza, got really frustrated and pulled at the one point and the tooth came loose so I left my room to wash my mouth and stop the bleeding. I come back to see the screen telling me I caught him.

Same here. (I utterly freaked)

Uhh, best capture... well, all I can think of right now is finally capturing all the three legendary dogs in SoulSilver.
Other than that, I can't really think of anything else.

In my five or so years of probably dozens of files in half a dozen pokemon games, I have stumbled across exactly ONE shiny pokemon. A Venomoth in Gold. And I still have that sparkly blue bastard.

I got Suicune in Crystal with a Friend ball because I had run out of other things to throw at it. I was ecstatic.
