Pokemon Prof.
A few days ago I battled a guy and he used all legendaries and I used 3 pokemon and beat him. I didn't use legendaries either. I found it funny.

Hunting for a Shiny Tympole via RE's...
and ending up finding a Shiny Timburr. >.>
 
I was playing Ruby on a GameBoy Advance a while ago and I was quite inexperienced. I was trying to catch Rayquaza.

I weakened him a bit first and then started throwing Ultra balls. I caught it in 4. I was so shocked. I was really in a good mood and I started dancing. My finger slipped. Power off. I sat there staring at the screen dumbfounded. My friend who was quietly playing his own game simply said ″I don't think I've ever seen anyone do that before″

I started the game up again and I had saved just prior luckily. Same tactic and this time I caught it in 2. What are the chances?! I had learned my lesson and I made sure it was saved.

Talking about being unlucky I'm writing thison my 3DS and while writing halfway through the story I pressed cancel. I've written this paragraph 1.5x now. lol

Lucky... I always have HORRIBLE luck when it comes to catching legendaries. They always take at least 15 Ultra Balls, and (in friggin' Virizion's case) a LOT more. :mad:

But still, congratulations. You should be grateful of your good luck. ;)

I've had instances where I'll only have 30-40 Ultraballs, yet each time I go after a Legendary Pokemon, it doesn't capture til the last Ultraball.

While trying to catch Reshiram i paralyzed it, got it down to about 25% HP and threw a Great ball. It was a critical capture and yet Reshiram still broke free. So i threw a second Great ball but this time it wasnt critical.. Nonetheless i still caught it. Why in the world would a critical capture fail and then a regular throw work lol

Something just happened earlier on HG.

*Playing HeartGold*

Alright, now that I have the SquirtBottle, I'll keep this Sudowoodo from blocking the path.

A wild Sudowoodo appeared!

Alright, now... Wait, why does it look--

*twinkle*

HOLY CRAP!

I caught it with a Great Ball after about a ten-minute battle.

Well, congratulations on catching a Shiny Sudowoodo! What gender, ability and nature did it have?
