What's the biggest streak of luck you ever got while playing?
A few minutes ago, I was inside Chargestone Cave, trying to catch a Boldore, when I threw a pokéball and heard it whistle in the air, it shook only once, then clicked. I'd never seen that before. I went "HOMG is that like a Critical Pokéball or something!?" *googles* "It IS a critical pokéball! Cool!"
Being that I was already on google, I looked up pokés that are in Chargestone Cave, and saw that the rarest one on the list (I was on 1F) was Tynamo. "2%? Mmm, I'm not gonna see one of those probably."
Few minutes later, I see a Tynamo. I'm still on 1F.
One headbutt brought it to half health, then I threw a dusk ball at it, and I caught that Tynamo, because that throw was also a critical pokéball.
In my entire playtime on White, which hasn't been very long (I just got my 5th gym badge), I never saw critical captures. Then, in the span of 15 minutes, probably only 5 of them playing the game, I got two critical throws, one of them on a rare pokémon.
So what are your stories? Given the mechanics of Pokémon, luck can be a major factor. Maybe you caught a legendary at full health with one regular poké ball, or maybe you got screwed out of an easy fight because of critical hits. Let's hear 'em!
