Is it me, or is it just wierd that I caught a Dialga with a Poke Ball just now.. I mean an actual Poke Ball, with a red top and white bottom...? It WAS paralyzed and had only a single pixle of health left, though...

It's kind of odd, but not absolutely amazing. I don't think a whole thread needs to be made about this. /:

I wasn't trying to impress... completely, but I thought maybe something was wrong with the coding of my game... then I checked the catch rates and Dialga has a higher catch rate than freaking Mantyke! I thought I was the **** for a minute... what a rip. Mods or whatever, close this fraud of a post and ban the nerd who made it... Oh crap, wait!!

You had to have pressed a + b + down.

That makes your Pokeball become a MASTER BALL!!!

Assuming the Dialga was at level 70 and its max HP was 285 and you got it down to 1 HP:

a = (((((3*285) - (2x1)) x 30 x 1) / (3x285))) x 1.5
a ~ 44

p ~ 44 / (2^8-1)
p ~ .17

Meaning there was a 17% chance of that Pokeball capturing that Dialga.

Nah, it's not that weird. I heard about someone doing it when I first got my Pearl version. So, I thought I should try it too. I left it with a little bit of HP and paralyzed it. I had an ultra ball to use, but I decided to use a Pokeball, just for laughs. When I caught it, I was pretty impressed, but from what I hear it's not that hard to do.

If you don't know yet, both Dialga and Palkia have a catch rate of 30. Many legendaries have a catch rate of only 3
