I remember facing my second legendary hound in Pokémon gold, know that they'd run away/growl the first move and my first pokémon couldn't prevent it so I instantly tossed one of Kurt's balls and actually managed to catch it instantly, best childhood memory.
I always wondered the % to actually manage to catch Suicune with a fast ball from full health.

They are cats
Entei is lion
Raikou is prehistoric tiger
Suicune is some kind of polar cheetah.. or leopard

the most amazing thing ive ever done was walking into the cave with mewtwo in it and forgetting i only had one weak ghastly and just said what the heck and through a ultra ball at it and caught it while it had full health nothing else that day could compare to the happiness i felt when that happened
if you read this i appreciate it and wish you all a good day

Ultra Ball: 4.67%
Dusk Ball: 9.35%
Timer Ball: 9.35%

I forget; what is a timer ball and a level ball? (if they are from the newer games then I have never heard of them)
User avatar #64 to #60 - hammarhead (05/15/2013) [-]
Timer ball: longer the match, better the ball
User avatar #101 to #64 - guymandude (05/15/2013) [-]
Oh, I don't even remember those. Do you know what a level ball is though?
User avatar #26 to #6 - misterymisterman (05/14/2013) [-]
Dusk Ball: While in a cave/it's night time.
Timer Ball: After 40+ turns.
Level Ball: Only good if your pokémon's level is at least double the legendary's.

Just if your Pokemon is level 80+

And I'm sitting here tossing 20 Ultra Balls on a sleeping Lugia with 1 health.

Legendaries are assholes I actually used a masterball on a zubat once just for the hell of it and it broke free and ran away. Yet I caught Raikou with a timer ball while he was sleeping. I think pokemon just likes to **** with you.
#14 to #8 - Womens Study Major (05/14/2013) [-]
I think the chance of missing with the masterball is much less than .1%. I don't believe your claim, even if it might be true.
User avatar #15 to #14 - shagtastic (05/14/2013) [-]
There' s always room for failures, that was one of them.
It's never happened since then as you said the chances are probably less than one.. I guess around 0.75% of missing since it is the best ball in the game.
User avatar #19 to #15 - onederman (05/14/2013) [-]
It's actually not an amazing once-in-a-life-time thing, even with a .75% chance, that's still only a 1/133 chance, which if you think about it, you have less of a chance of rolling quads ( a 1/1000 chance) than missing a catch with a masterball.
User avatar #52 to #19 - fonestig ONLINE (05/15/2013) [-]
you actually have 10/1000 (0000) (1111) (2222) (3333) (etc.)
10/1000 = 1/100 > 1/133 so rolling quads is more likely
but these are still theoretical probabilities so they mean nothing to me

**onederman rolls 1,719**
There are not 1000 numbers in 0-999 (*roll 4*) , there are 10,000 numbers because of 1 through 9999 plus the 0 equals ten thousand or 10000, and a 1 in 10 chance of quads, so it's 10/10000 = 1/1000, not 10/1000 = 1/100. Rolling ones (1, 2, 3, etc.) is 100% chance, rolling dubs ( 00, 11, 22, 33, etc.) is 10% chance, rolling trips (000, 1111, 222, 333, etc.) is 1% chance, so rolling quads (I think you get the point) is .1% or 1/1000 chance.
Wow, that was a lot more than I meant to type.

TL;DR: *roll 4* has 10000 possible numbers, not 1000 like you said.

your right my bad
User avatar #103 to #102 - onederman (05/16/2013) [-]
no problem, everyone makes mistakes At least you didn't try to continue saying you were right, like some people I know

**anonymous rolls 1,098**

Ohh, you mean one of these?
User avatar #76 to #73 - onederman (05/15/2013) [-]
Of course you were a pussy and didn't log in to roll so you wouldn't be thumbed down. You disgust me.
