    Giratina-Master Ball in first turn (Though I wish I would've waited for Cresselia...)
    Diagla-First Turn, Quick Ball
    Palkia-First Turn, Quick Ball

    That's when I was sold on quick balls, they are awesome. Now, I always have atleast fourty of them on me.

    Dialga: Very easy to capture! I used ultra balls!
    Giratina: Very easy to capture! I used dusk balls!

    I thought catching Diagla and Giratina was NOTHING on Diamond compared to catching Mewtwo on Heartgold.

    They were all easy to capture, took about 10 Ultra Balls between the 3.

    I caught Palkia at half health with a single Ultra Ball... Dialga was similarly easy to capture. However capturing Giratina in both Pearl and Platinum was a challenge.

    I usually paralyze them and try to get them down to low yellow or red HP. It only took like 5 Ultra balls so it was fairly easy to get all 3 of them.

    It was so funny, I caught both palkia and dialga in platinum in green health with one ultra ball. They were asleep. For giratina, I used the master ball.

    Dialga (Diamond)-i threw a masterball on the first turn. Which was probably a very bad descision.
    Giratina (Platinum)-this time i had an epic battle. Instead of throwing a masterball on the first turn, i did when all my Pokemon were fainted except a level 2 Riolu that had survived its last attack using endure.

    Dialga [Diamond] - Meh, it was sleeping and I was low on pokemon, ended up being caught in a Ultraball.
    Palkia [Pearl] - I had it put to sleep fast, got it down to the red, threw all my Ultraballs and threw a Pokeball before throwing my Masterball, it worked.
    Giratina [Platinum] - Got it low on HP, used a LuxuryBall and bingo.

    Dialga- I don't remember what ball I caught it in but it was easy.
    Palkia- So easy I caught it in a Poke Ball!
    Giratina- Hard in D/P. Just ordered Platinum but I'm not sure if the catch rate is different.

    I only remember how I caught the trio on Platinum. Diamond was ages ago for me. I threw a Master Ball at Giratina out of laziness, but Dialga and Palkia were cake to capture. I caught them using a Dusk Ball at night.

    Dialga and Palkia: One Ultra Ball each. Giratina: Couldn't catch it in the Distortion World, so I had to wait for Turnback Cave. MUCH easier there!

    As of now, my focus is on Safaris with starters (barring Wartortle and Quilladin), but give me your Safari anyway. Chances are I'll find something interesting.

    Dialga: Ultra ball Palkia: A net ball which was only the 2nd one I threw and Girantina: After 50 tries finally caught it in a ultra ball. I'd say Girantina was the hardest to catch.

    I played through on Platinum, and I remember having difficulty with Giratina. And by that, I mean I had to reset the game about 10 times because I kept dying or killing the silly thing.

    Dialga and Palkia were.. less challenging, to put it mildly. I think it only took two tries with Dialga, and I caught it with an Ultra Ball. Palkia took about 4 attempts I believe with an Ultra Ball as well. This was also with me putting very little effort into lowing the HP properly or adding status effects.

    Dialga- easy parlyzed and caught in my first ultra ball. I'd have to say the lake trio was harder.

    i found catching Dialga in my Diamond very easily. I used false swipe and put it to sleep, and caught it 3 ultra balls later.

    When catching Dialga on Diamond I caught on my first Poke Ball at full health and yes, I used a regualar Poke Ball. For Giratina on Platinum I caught him on my 11th Poke Ball in the red and frozen.
    I am the epic. Obey me, or you will suffer my wrath.

    so i herd u liek mudkipz?

    Dialga and Palkia were easy. Heck, I even caught Dialga with a Great Ball.

    Giratina, on the other hand, was a f***ing pain to capture.

    First time around, I had no idea the Master Ball was so rare so I used it on Dialga, therefore easiness.

    Palkia wasn't too hard.

    Giratina in the Distortion World was actually really hard for me for some reason. It took me God knows how many times, but eventually I did.

    ^ I did the same thing with Diagla on Diamond the first time.

    Palkia was easy to catch with a few Netballs(platinum). Dialga took a few Ultraballs(platinum). Giratina(Diamond) was a giant pain to catch. Giratina in the distortion world, I caught within 12 Ultraballs(but he almost murdered my team).

    It wasn't really that hard. The only difficult pokemon for me was Mespirit, him and his fleeing ways...
