    Default Ridiculous

    Giratina took me about 10 dusk balls while asleep with low health.
    Then Dialga i got first try with dusk ball,
    and palkia i got first try with a poke ball!

    I caught Palkia easily in Pearl with an ultra ball.
    Giratina in Platinum, on the other hand, was only hard because I wanted an Adamant one. I had to walk all the way out of the Distorted World and Mt. Coronet to get a Ralts from my PC, and back again. Then I had to catch it multiple times before I got decent IVs.

    This is in Platinum:

    Dialga - Haven't encountered it yet
    Palkia - Haven't encountered it yet
    Giratina - Used a Master Ball (I was planning to catch it with my Master Ball right from the start)
    And here's where I'd put a witty signature.

    IF I HAD ONE!

    Might as well quote this, since this is pretty much what I was going to say anyway.

    Pearl Version: Palkia was easy to catch, due to that 30 catch rate it has. It just took one try and two poke balls after I lowered its health to red (which wasn't too hard to do). It broke out of the dusk ball instantly, for it was only around 5:00 PM, and was then caught with a net ball.

    Platinum Version: Giratina was HARD. Not only does it have a catch rate of 3, but I only had about 15 ultra balls and less than 5 dusk balls. Took multiple restarts to catch that thing. Weirdly, my Platinum Giratina has the same nature as my Pearl Palkia: Naive.

    On pearl palkia was so easy, I caught it at about a third of its health left using a graet ball. Giratina was a pain though

    Thanks to Serris for the great sig.

    Dialga - Lowered HP first, then on the 3rd turn I used the Luxury Ball. Yep, caught it with the Luxury ball
    Palkia - Lowered HP first then, on the 3rd turn used Quick Ball. Palkia was caught(music plays)
    Giratina - Caught it on the very first turn. Rash Nature with 31 IV's on Sp.Atk. Used Masterball.

    I catched them three with pokéballs in platinum.Giratina was way easier.Needed three pokéballs in the 2nd try(killed him in the first).

    For me, Dialga and Palkia were very easy in both D/P and Platinum. Giratina was not, as it has a lower capture rate and it is immune to False Swipe (I was too lazy to bring something with Foresight or a similar move).

    This feeling is taking me over, this feeling that I can't deny
    Because through all the pain and the crippling loss, it's so good to know I'm alive

    I won't give in to the sorrow, I will not rest till I've won

    I used my Garchomp, I think. He was at a lv over 50 and killed him with Dragon Claw

    I always caught the legendary on the box with a Masterball, so those were always easy.
    I found Palkia and Dialga to be surprisingly easy to catch on Platinum. It only took a couple of balls for each, IIRC.

    Laugh. I did this to Uxie. Dialga was simple to catch on Diamond, a few Timer Balls and that was it. On another note, Quiet synch worked!

    Palkia and Dialga were easy because of there catch rate being of a Chatot. And I got them within one try with Ultra Balls.
    Giratina was harder, it took me 4 resets to get it with a Dusk Ball and 1-12 HP left with Paralysis.

    Dialga was pretty easy but catching Giratina was a bit of a challenge for me. I almost ran out of Pokeballs and luckily I didn't use my Master ball.

    I don't remember at the moment, but I think I caught both Dialga/Plakia in ultra balls.
    And here's where I'd put a witty signature.

    The Ghost typing Giratina has nearly made me rip my hair out after softsetting for natures and stats... Dialga and Palkia was easy, just because of the lack of a ghost typing... Also they have a catch rate of 45, while Giratina has a catch rate of 3... Yeah...

    Quickball = 1 turn catch on Dialga!
    He was ridiculously easy!
    But then on the other hand, for Giratina it managed to feint 2 of my pokemon, but about 16/17 turns went by used a timer ball....no problem :P

    Dialga and Palkia were nothing compared to Giratina!

    ...I still caught all three in Pokeballs, though.

    Palkia and Dialga are supposed to be easy to capture, too bad I used a master ball on Palkia on my first play through. Giratina was hard to catch even after I put it to sleep.
