    What was your hardest capture in the safari zone.

    It took me forever to get syther and dratini but when a chansey appeared I caught it first try :eek:. Still have yet to catch a Tauros.

    Oh god. TAUROS. I still can't catch hat B**ch. 1% and flees after one turn.

    Chansey's not hard. I catch it about 30% of the time.

    yes, you can find Dragonair there.
    I believe.

    Yeah, that is correct. Dragonair has a 1 to 4% chance of appearing I think while Dratini has up to a 15% chance of appearing.

    Tauros and Dratini. -_- Neither of them stayed around long enough for me to have a chance.

    Fu*king Scyther! The uncertainty of throwing a rock or a ball, gimmer of hope when the poke ball is wobbling and utter despair when it fless is the life of me running into a wild Scyther. Never caught one :(

    nathandg0924 Back in the meantime

    Hardest are definitely the following: Chansey, Tauros, Kangaskhan, Pinsir, Scyther and Dratini. Man, they're super hard to catch and they always flee after the first turn, especially Chansey. I can never catch those guys which is why I never go to Safari Zone. Why do they have to make things so hard? :(

    Alot of luck is involved at times. I found a Scyther in an area where it only has 1 percent chance of finding it and I caught it first try not even using bait or anything. Right after that I found a chansey and caught it first try too! The only one I wasn't able to get was Tauros, and I traded with a friend who really wanted the Chansey, we both got eggs for the pokemon and traded them back.

    I'm not sure, I didn't go into the Safari Zone a lot. As far as I know, it's slightly easier to catch a Pokémon in the remakes than in the original ("You missed the Pokémon!"), but I think the rarest Pokémon like Tauros, Chansey, and Kangaskhan are the hardest to capture, mainly because of the catch rate.

    Cometstarlight What do I do now?

    Kanghaskan, Dratini, Dragonair, I can catch those no problem, but Tauros, Chansey, and Scyther....Why u no get into the pokeball?!

    TAUROS!!!! The last one i needed to complete the first 150 of the pokedex on leaf green. Gave up after a while due to only seeing it about 5 times.
    I found kangaskhan pretty hard as well.
    Only seen dragonair once.

    It took me hours to track down a Tauros in LeafGreen version, and then several days to actually capture one. I've also had a tough time capturing Chansey and Kangaskhan.

    Has to be Dratini for me, I didn't bother with Tauros/Kangashan but can imagine them beind difficult too.
    But back to Dratini, that was such a difficult Poke to catch, took time but was worth it in the end.
    And no, I would rather catch one then buy it from the Celadon, thanks :]

    Oh and that thing was difficult to catch. I tried a few times and immediately gave up haha
