the move super fang is really good it will get your Pokemon at half health and will not kill it when paird with a sleep inducing move or thunder wave it will be easy to catch a Pokemon

Paralyze the opponent and slowly wear down it's HP. This will make it really easy to catch.

Sleep also works really well but I prefer Paralyze as it will not wear off.

False Swipe is the only move, however, that will not faint a Pokemon.

All moves that have a negative effect on the Pokemon are very useful. Move that makes it low healthed, put to sleep, and other negative stuff. Paralyzing is the most effective, GOOD LUCK.

No judging, Im raw :P
Thats ok, I'll cook you and then you won't be raw :D
You got a furnace. Becuz if someone eats me, they have a 25% chance of poisoning 'em.
I didn't say anyone would eat you D: I just said I'd remove the rawness xD

Shadow Tag ability or Mean Look / Spider Web can trap a Pokemon so it can't escape.
Besides those, it's best to freeze / put the wild PKMN to sleep to raise its catch rate.

what I use to catch Pokemon is false swipe and thunder wave. I usually have it on a fairly high level Pokemon lvl 100 preferably since you can pretty much 1 hit anything but false swipe prevents it from fainting which means it will stay at 1 hp. This is usually enough to catch it but thunder wave helps if it is being stubborn
