Once I was fighting either Dialga or Palkia and it was my first play though so I knew nothing about pokemon and I avoid all trainers I could and my starter was the best pokemon I had and all my other pokemon were like lv. 30 or 40 and my started was like 70 or 80
so he fainted and I had no revives cause I had no money and came completely unprepared so I was on last or second to last pokemon
and I had no more ultra balls and since I waisted my ultra ball on a giant yeti pokemon... thing I had like 20 pokeballs after 3 pokeballs I caught it. :dry:

Rayquaza in Emerald. Got him down to red and wasted a bunch of Ultras on him. He uses Rest. Get him down to yellow and I was pissed so I just tossed a Pokeball, the last thing I had left. Caught him.

This story is a bit different than everyone else, but it's still a crazy legendary story, so I figured it would fit.

In B2 I really wanted to catch a shiny Zekrom. I planed to do this by soft resetting until it happened to be shiny. I had no idea that it was no longer possible to encounter a shiny legendary like this. I was in the car on the way home from vacation and it would be a long time until we got home so I figured wasting a lot of time to get it wouldn't be a big deal. Long story short, I ended up soft resetting for about 4 hours, and obviously I'd had no luck. I eventually gave up and just caught it. When I got home I did a bit of searching online and finally discovered that it was impossible to do. I was so mad I almost smashed my DS. :lol:

Um... in front of my compooter
Pokemon HeartGold. I encountered mewtwo and I got him to low HP (LV 83 Gardevoir FTW) and I used up half of my Ultra ball supply (About 60+ Ultra balls). I decided to just wing it and I threw a plain Pokeball. First one caught him...

Apparently, a high grade ball like the ultra ball can't catch me a mewtwo, but a bland, useless pokeball can!!?? Gamefreak, fix this, cus' I like it when a game makes more sense...

In Pokemon Ruby I was trying to catch Rayquaza and it took so many Ultra Balls that I finally handed my game over to my friend and after a few tries she caught it. I wound up naming it after her.

It's not really a funny capture, but I had a goal to catch Lugia in SoulSilver with only a Pokeball. Lugia has one of the lowest catch rates in Pokemon, and I caught it after five throws.
