    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.

    Definitely Chansey for me. You did well to get one first try!

    Lucky (Chansey) and Garura (Kangaskhan) for me. All the hard to find wild Pokemon in the Safari Zone were a pain in the neck to capture, and I wasn't a fan of that place as a result.

    I always had bad luck finding Tauros and even harder luck catching one in the Safari Zone. Chansey was also one of those hard to encounter Pokemon and I wish she could be found in Cerulean Cave in FRLG like in Red/Blue.

    I forgot that they could be found in that cave in the original Kanto games, and it's really a shame that Game Freak changed things in LG/FR. Also, I will admit that capturing Kentauros (Tauros) was an ordeal for me too in these games, although I remember finding them more frequently than Lucky (Chansey) or Garura (Kangaskhan).

    Easily Chansey. Not only is it rare but it is very likely to flee after your first action. Count yourself lucky if you get more than one chance to toss a Safari Ball at it.

    Tauros and Kangaskhan, and I actually managed to catch a Chansey holding a Lucky Egg in FireRed.

    Scyther, Pinsir, Tauros, Kangaskhan and Chansey are all super hard to catch at the Safari Zone so I can't choose just one. I'm surprised nobody said Dragonair yet because I could've sworn it was hard to find too.

    That's incredibly lucky, no pun intended. Lucky (Chansey) only has a 5% chance of holding the Lucky Egg in LG/FR, so finding one with that held item is extremely rare.

    Chansey was the hardest safari zone pokemon for me to track down in Fire Red but the hardest one to catch was Tauros. It took me three days of looking and trying before I snagged one.
