Yeah... I did in Fire Red and Leaf Green too...
Back then I was naive to think it was obtainable. I threw great ball after great ball before finally my brother told me I could never catch it.
Yeah.....oh I tried so hard XD
A "friend" of mine told me if you caught it you could revive all the dead pokemon in the tower and use them against the E4 LOL
Funny thing is, I believed him X,D
EVERY kid tried at one point or another, to this day even though I know you can't everytime i restart my game I try, with thathope that the game will mess up and let me have it
If pokemon were real my team:
Of course I did. Once. I remember just using pokedolls after that because I didn't want to fight it for some reason.
In progress: Platinum Nuzlocke
Yes, I did. I even came prepared with tons of Great Balls, only to find out it can't be captured...

Spoiler:- Other sig stuff:
Yes, I wanted it very badly and was upset when it dodged.
Every other cast member > Clemont/Bonnie
I wanted it so bad......
Of course I tried. What young Pokemon fanatic wouldn't have tried?
Of course I did at one time. Imagine if you actually caught a dead pokemon hehe :P
Yes, gave up quickly though when I realised it couldn't be done.
Yes, I really wanted it. I always thought that there should be more opportunities to catch special Pokemon. Kind of like the pink Pokemon from the Orange Islands, and the Dark and Light Pokemon from the TCG. Those types of special Pokemon seem to add more depth to the world of Pokemon. Shiny Pokemon were a great step in the right direction.
no i did not..
I wasted a pokeball or two on it. Of course it failed, but i was curious at the time to see if it would work.
Roserade's been claimed, so I CLAIMED ROSELIA!!!Kirby's Return To Dreamland Comes out Oct. 24th!
I didn't have a Marowak, and since the Sliph Scope allowed me to catch the Gastly, I thought it was possible. No it wasn't, so I settled for a Cubone from the Pokemon Tower.

I tried once or twice and even when it was just the ghostly figure lol
Haha, I like the idea of throwing a Pokedoll at it. It just needed something to cuddle before it departed to the afterlife. Kinda sad, actually. D:
I was so bound and determined to catch that stupid Marowak when I was a kid, I loaded up Pokemon Stadium, deposited a huuuuge amount of Fresh Waters into the Item Box before restarting my game (bye bye full Pokedex!). I got up to that point in the game, gave a Fresh Water to the Saffron guard, continued the rest of the game without doing the Tower as far as I could until it let me get the Master Ball from Silph Co. I went back and threw that Master Ball at the Marowak and...
...nothing. I was ten years old. I cried, dude. >_>
I don't remember if that's exactly how it went down, I MIGHT'VE run into some problems and had to bring in a Master Ball from the Stadium item box. I don't quite remember, I was pretty young when I did this. I still laugh at myself for it, though. XD
I badly wanted that Marowak, especially since I was too lazy to spend hours trying to find a Cubone, and then waste even more time leveling said Cubone up to evolving to Marowak through the one method I HATE: Level Grinding.
Not many people knew he wasn't actually Catch able.
i played yellow ages ago, and i can't remember if i tried way back then, but i recently started again and threw a pokeball at out of curiosity. when it failed, my curiosity was satisfied.
