Default Catching Legendary Pokemon HELP!

I just found Moltres at Mt Ember and I'm saved in front of him. I used Dragonair's thunder wave to paralyze him and I got him down to one health with Scyther's false swipe. I burned all 50 ultra balls on the bird, and still no catch :( What am I doing wrong?

You are not doing anything wrong, in fact, thats the best way to catch Moltres but i think is the hardest of the 3 birds (i caught Zapdos with a GreatBall, Cuno with Pokeball and Moltres took like 3 resets)

Its just a matter of waiting, try to bring Great or Pokeballs also, they work better from what i have seen.

Thanks for the response. Do you know if certain status' are more effective than others? i.e. sleep vs paralysis

Usually sleep and paralysis are the only ones that greatly affect the catch rate if I remember right.

Hate to break it to you, but you are wrong. Sleep and Frozen AND Paralysis all affect the catch rate the same.

And Fuzzy Lukesaurus, you did nothing wrong, you just got unlucky. Keep trying!

Moltres is purposefully the hardest to catch. If you examine all the names, Articuno, Zapdos and Moltres, you will see that the last part of their names are spanish numbers, 1 2 and 3. So articuno is obviously the easiest to catch, Zapdos is the second hardest and moltres is the hardest. They also come in the 1, 2, 3 order in the pokedex.
However, all three of the legendary birds' catch rate is the same at 3. But there is obviously some more difficulty catching moltress then with the other birds. I don't know, I could be wrong, but this is just what I think of it because I noticed the same thing. As for catching it...mostly you just have to be lucky, but it seems like if you throw 100 ultra balls or whatever and they don't work then maybe you should try something else. I think it helps to have some verity when capturing important pokemon.
-hope this helps-
