View Full Version : Rare Pokemon Time Trial

21st July 2006, 4:27 PM
What's your record for catching a really rare Pokemon? I don't hold any records, but a family friend of mine caught a Chimecho 10 minutes after he got to Mt. Pyre's peak.

21st July 2006, 4:41 PM
Chimecho was the first pokemon I found on mount pyre, for the record. I also found a feebas on my first try. A skitty was the third pokemon I found once I walked on route 116, after finding two taillows.

21st July 2006, 6:23 PM
Feebas on the first try

21st July 2006, 6:51 PM
Rayquaza with my frist ultra ball.

22nd July 2006, 1:40 AM
I once found a Chimecho as soon as I walked into the grass on Mt. Pyre.

Once on my sapphire, I went searching for Absol, and it was the first pokemon I found, so I caught it, took a few more steps and found another pokemon, which was ANOTHER Absol!

On my Leaf Green, I had just beaten the Elite Four for the first time and just got my national dex, and so I headed out of Palet Town out onto route 1. I take like two steps in the grass and voila! Raikou appears! Talk about luck.

22nd July 2006, 1:49 AM
^Wow that is lucky! I found bagon as my second pokemon once I entered the area, not sure if it's as rare as the others you guys had found.

22nd July 2006, 2:09 AM
My best pokemon... day

Trained Alakazam up 10 levels

while training, ran into shiny Parasect. caught it with my only ball-luxury

going to the PC to see it's stats, run into suicune on the way.

catch it on second encounter.

What a great day!

22nd July 2006, 2:54 AM
The first egg I hatchedf was shiny. Little did I know that shiny's were rare and so I thought it must've been a problem so I factory reset it (Why did I do it?).

22nd July 2006, 4:37 AM
You reset the game! It's okay at least you had one at the moment I haven't gotten a shiny since the Johto era (a krabby while fishing thats before I had internet.)

22nd July 2006, 4:38 AM
Feebas is quite easy for me to catch.

Walking Contradiction
2nd August 2006, 11:37 AM
I met Chimecho as the first pokemon at mt. pyre slope and Absol as the first pokemon next to fortree.

2nd August 2006, 1:42 PM
While Ev training Slakoth
Ran into an Shiny Wurmple Caught it....
*Still Ev training*
Ran into an Shiny Poochyena OMG

Poochyeena is gold so i sell him to my cousins

2nd August 2006, 1:51 PM
Found a female Relicanth with Rock Head as the first Pokémon I ran into when diving to get into Sootopolis. Absolute bugger to catch, but I got her in the end.

Dragon trainer
2nd August 2006, 3:23 PM
*Murkrow - same here, first dive i ever did on ermerald, i come across a non shiny female relicanth! i have never found anothe rone again, and i thought i wasn't going to catch it in the end, I'm trying to find some more but no luck suprisingly, i'm trying to bree for a flawless stats one soon. (attack and defense)

In Leaf Green, I once ran into three Wobbuffets in a row on Island Six. I didn't catch any, though.

2nd August 2006, 8:56 PM
Once I went to route 113 and the first 3 pokémon I found were Skarmory. What's funny about that is I was trying to EV train something in special attack.
And no I didn't have anybody with magnet pull on me. Otherwise I wouldn't consider that rare.

2nd August 2006, 9:34 PM
Shiny Linoone was the second pokemon I saw when I was looking for a Manectric. I was stoked :P

4 8 15 16 23 42
2nd August 2006, 10:34 PM
I saw two shinies in Granite Cave (gone forever). Caught a Latias in a Net Ball (one of the first encounters). I saw a Relicanth the first dive I did on Sapphire, but killed it and I've seen hundreds of Absols around Fortree.

3rd August 2006, 5:03 AM
First time entering pokemon tower in Lg (right after the game came out), ran into shiny gastly. Caught it with my masterball as that was my only ball.

My son caught Rayquaza, Groudon, and Kyogre all on the first ultraball. I have no idea how, but i watched him do it. Bah.

3rd August 2006, 5:12 AM
lol fastest for me was throwing a mastaer ball at rayquaza in emerald

longest was catching a groudon with a pokeball in my sis's ruby but did manage to catch it with a pokeball even tho it took a heellla long time

3rd August 2006, 5:22 AM
First Taliow I Ran Into was a shiny

3rd August 2006, 8:23 AM
When I got to the route just before Fortree city, the first pokemon I found was tropius.

4th August 2006, 2:36 PM
The first Pokemon I saw in Route 116 was a Skitty. The strange thing is, it wasn't even a swarm...


4th August 2006, 2:49 PM
Rayquaza - First hit with my swampert- 3HP, frozen!

Caught him with my first ultra ball, took about 20 seconds!

Emerald Vaporeon
12th August 2006, 2:16 AM
I don't know if this counts, but once I just threw a great ball at the Kyogre with full HP on my emerald version... and it caught it. I didn't think it would actually catch it, though.

13th August 2006, 1:44 PM
Skitty on my first try! And male non shiny relicanth second or third try.

14th August 2006, 6:14 PM
Seeing Latios right after I beat Elite Four in the Desert, right after I found a Cacnea (For some reason it took ages to find >_>). On second encounter, my Wobufett used Mirror Coat on it's Psychic which left it in red and then I caught it with my second ultra ball. Better yet, it was a Modest Latios :D

14th August 2006, 6:56 PM
I found Chimecho after about 5 minutes of searching. It was the second Pokemon I found.

And I found loads of Ralts when there was an outbreak of Surskit. O_o


15th August 2006, 4:00 AM
Feebas: First Try.
Latias: Was going to the safari zone and caught it was an ultra ball.
Moltres: First Ultra Ball.
Articuno: 3rd Ultra Ball.
Regice: 2nd Ultra Ball.

15th August 2006, 6:17 AM
Lessee...I haven't had many...but this is the best I've done:
A Ralts as like, my third wild Pokemon in Route 102 in Sapphire.
A Skitty as maybe my fifth wild Pokemon on its route.
Tropius right away (then another).
Shiny Tentacool while surfing around Mossdeep pretty soon after I got there.
Absols come to me. A lot. I see many Absols...@_@

But no Chimecho or Feebas (though I haven't really spent much time looking.)

15th August 2006, 11:06 AM
caught a Relicanth very soon while diving. ^^; is it so rare? I never knew =P on my emerlad rom ralts was the first poké encountering on route 102. but, isn't ralts common on emerald? well, encountered one while retraining a reparty. =|
