Catching Pokémon is extremely easy if you know how. All you need is some patience.


  1. Decide when and where you want to catch your Pokémon. (Different pokeballs work better with different types of Pokémon.)
  2. Find a Pokémon. Run around in grassy areas, use Surf on the water, fish by areas of water or find a cave and run around.
  3. Weaken it until its HP is in the red. Be careful not to make it faint! If you are afraid of making it faint, the yellow area might be okay.
  4. Afflict it with a status condition, preferably sleep or paralysis. You don't need to do this, but these conditions will weaken the Pokémon making it easier to catch.
  5. Throw your Pokeball. There are different types of Pokeballs. Depending on how strong the Pokémon you are trying to catch is, you may have to use stronger Pokémon.


  • Use Dusk Balls at night.
  • Lowering Defense and Evasion with moves like Screech and Sweet Scent help as well.
  • False swipe can lower the target Pokémon to at least 1 HP.
  • How well a Pokeball performs:
    • Pokeball = x1
    • Greatball = x1.5
    • Ultraball = x2
    • Net Balls work well on Bug and Water types.
    • Nest Balls work best if your lead Pokémon is a higher level than the one you are trying to catch.


  • Be careful NOT to make the target Pokémon faint!
  • If the target Pokémon is close to fainting, be sure not to give it the status condition of Poison or Burn!
