Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

Does lowering a wild Pokemons' Defense, Accuracy, or Speed give you a higher chance of catching a Pokemon?

Like, I sort of always thought that a wild Pokemon with greater or less Def, Acc, Spe, or SpDef would have a lower or higher catch rate in that battle. But now I'm not so sure. So I was wondering if using moves such as Tail Whip, Flash, or String Shot would help me in my catching!

No, it doesn't.

Only major status conditions (e.g. Paralysis) and decreasing the target's health will increase your chance.
