Thread: Hardest captures in the safari zone?

    For me it was Tauros without a doubt. Khangiskan and chansey were tough, but trying to catch a tauros on leafgreen is just plain out frustrating

    Dragonair. The usually run away and the ball barely ever shakes once when I encounter one in the Safari Zone.

    Chansey & Scyther didn't pose too much of a problem for me, really? I mean, it wasn't super easy, but it wasn't very taxing either. I ran into them often enough, so it was a game of "throw the ball and hope it stays in" rather than tear your hair out looking for the stupid thing first and then when you find one, finally, it runs. :P It took 15-20 minutes to catch Chansey and Scyther (each--so less than an hour for both together). However, Tauros is a royal pain in the behind and I can barely manage to even find him. I've only seen him twice and, obviously, both attempts ended in failure. Kangaskhan I have caught in the past, but not in my current run of FR. From what I remember, they're also a pain, but I haven't set out for one yet.

    I usually caught Kangaskhan pretty easily. It was always Tauros or Chansey being a huge pain. They'd break out immediately and then flee. So frustrating!

    Chansey or Tauros.... And I gave up on catching them... They're monstruously hard to catch.

    In my opinion, Chansey and Dragonair.

    Tauros was a jerk to catch, but it was worth it.

    I've caught them all and it was definitely Tauros.

    Now that I have Fire Red though, Scyther seems pretty hard.. When it comes to numbers though since Pinsir and Scyther are both LG/FR exclusives, scyther's catch rate is probably the same as Pinsir's- and you don't see anyone saying Pinsir on this thread. So I probably just had bad luck.

    I managed to capture a Tauros one time, and I was really happy! I took me weeks to get it, omg.
    I'm not sure, but I think I once saw a female Tauros. I know it's not possible, due that he's only male, but maybe it was a glitch?

    Kangaskhan and Tauros. OMG, they always flee and they are barely shown to be caught. So I gave up on getting them.

    I agree with Lime Soda on Scyther and Pinsir but i always thought catching a Rhydon was very difficult as well but then again it's kind of all about luck. I usually sont spend too much time in the safari zone besides to get the goods.

    Catching Scyther was hardest for me. I thought Chansey was easier to catch, I would just have to find it first...

    Chancey, Dragonair and Tauros. In the end, I managed to catch Chancey and I just got a dratini from the slot machines (after figuring out how to get a jackpot roughly every 10 goes), and I'm still trying to get a Tauros.
    I wonder why that Articuno just used Mind Reader. What good could it do? Wait a moment...

    Of all my years of owning LeafGreen, I have never caught a Chansey. Haha, it even says 'Catching one is all up to chance'.

    Heracross. It was SUCH A PAIN. Tauros was surprisingly easy for me, though!

    Ha probably someone has, but if Dragonair only has a 1% encouter rate in the safari zone, then the chances of that happening would be 1/2000. Not including catch rate
