Thread: Hardest captures in the safari zone?

  1. #1

    Default Hardest captures in the safari zone?

    What was your hardest capture in the safari zone.

    It took me forever to get syther and dratini but when a chansey appeared I caught it first try . Still have yet to catch a Tauros.

    Oh god. TAUROS. I still can't catch hat B**ch. 1% and flees after one turn.

    Chansey's not hard. I catch it about 30% of the time.

    Yeah, that is correct. Dragonair has a 1 to 4% chance of appearing I think while Dratini has up to a 15% chance of appearing.

    Tauros and Dratini. -_- Neither of them stayed around long enough for me to have a chance.

    Fu*king Scyther! The uncertainty of throwing a rock or a ball, gimmer of hope when the poke ball is wobbling and utter despair when it fless is the life of me running into a wild Scyther. Never caught one

    Hardest are definitely the following: Chansey, Tauros, Kangaskhan, Pinsir, Scyther and Dratini. Man, they're super hard to catch and they always flee after the first turn, especially Chansey. I can never catch those guys which is why I never go to Safari Zone. Why do they have to make things so hard?

    Alot of luck is involved at times. I found a Scyther in an area where it only has 1 percent chance of finding it and I caught it first try not even using bait or anything. Right after that I found a chansey and caught it first try too! The only one I wasn't able to get was Tauros, and I traded with a friend who really wanted the Chansey, we both got eggs for the pokemon and traded them back.

    I'm not sure, I didn't go into the Safari Zone a lot. As far as I know, it's slightly easier to catch a Pokémon in the remakes than in the original ("You missed the Pokémon!"), but I think the rarest Pokémon like Tauros, Chansey, and Kangaskhan are the hardest to capture, mainly because of the catch rate.

    TAUROS!!!! The last one i needed to complete the first 150 of the pokedex on leaf green. Gave up after a while due to only seeing it about 5 times.
    I found kangaskhan pretty hard as well.
    Only seen dragonair once.

    It took me hours to track down a Tauros in LeafGreen version, and then several days to actually capture one. I've also had a tough time capturing Chansey and Kangaskhan.

    Chansey....I have never caught one....ever.
    Take a moment to consider just how nothing nothing really is....If you understand this, then you just solved the universe.

    The truth that each person...each soul...is a book. And when we lay our feelings out in the open...and we give them no name...and we give them no author....and we give them no description.....who will actually read them..........?"

    Has to be Dratini for me, I didn't bother with Tauros/Kangashan but can imagine them beind difficult too.
    But back to Dratini, that was such a difficult Poke to catch, took time but was worth it in the end.
    And no, I would rather catch one then buy it from the Celadon, thanks :]

    Pinsir Tauros and Chansey
    I don't use "uber" Pokemon, I don't calculate stat values, I don't use cheating devices, I don't breed my way to perfection, and I don't care about natures. I catch my Pokemon the way they are, and treat them like individuals instead of brainless drones. If you use this philosophy, copy & paste this into your signature. (Started by Tyranitar)

    Put this in your signature if you think Ruby and Sapphire deserve remakes
