Mean look will trap them, then taunt will keep them at bay. Nice Idea. I would suggest using the move spore to guarantee sleep on them, keeping them from using roar. Umbreon is great for defense, but if you want to get them with great power, I'd use Absol, who can learn both mean look and taunt, but also has false swipe, a very helpful move. Fast balls (when trying to flee), ultra balls, and dusk balls (at night) work wonders. If you transfer a master ball from a different game, it's your for sure.

You could use Mean Look and Baton Pass on Umbreon. Then you can trap them and switch to another pokemon that can put them to sleep or paralyze them or use False Swipe.

Mean look then disable on roar then (for rakiou) Throw a luxury ball

If you disabled it it would already be to late he would have escaped
Oh. good guess though since I don't have HG/SS.
