When I was younger I used to hold down every button on the gameboy, thinking it would give me a better catch rate. Unfortunately, I found out that if you press all the buttons at once, the gameboy resets. :silent:
Unfortunately it's just a myth. But I still do it anyway. Ever since my friend told me that if you hold down on the D-Pad and B you can catch Pokemon really easy in Pokemon Gold. And my other friend said that he used to trick to help him catch Mewtwo in Blue, so he obviously got really lucky.
But ever since then, I have carried the tradition up through the generations. Literally. Ever since Gold I've been using that trick. It's to bad it doesn't really work.
