Best answer

if you mean the method that you push buttons in order to increase the capture rate in the games.
no it does not work,neither in any other games,although it was told by some people that doing this thing raises capture rate by poke balls,it does not really do what is said,it never did because it was not included in the equation used by capturing pokemons.
sources:
http://www.serebii.net/games/capture.shtml
http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Catch
as seen at the bottom of the page above it says that
Trivia

Some people claim to have discovered button combinations that increase a Pokémon's catch rate; this is merely idle thought, as there is no method to improve catch rates other than the methods described above.
hope this helps
(also if i am talking about the wrong answer,please tell me,stop giving imidiate vote downs,at least I tried my best)

THIS DOES NOT WORK AT ALL IN ANY LEGITIMATE POKÉMON GAME

I agree with hex. I have four strategy guides and if they tell you how to get pokerus or shiny  pokes then they should also tell us button glitches
