My LV54 Ampharos paralyzed Ho-oh (LV70) and used Power Gem three times to get his HP super low (probably 2 - 10 HP). It only took 5 Ultra Balls after that to catch him. Suicune was much more difficult. :)

Yeah, there is.

  • Put a status, preferably paralysis, onto Ho-oh. This increases your chances.
  • Battle in the nighttime and chuck Dusk Balls at it. Dusk Balls work really well.
  • False Swipe. When Ho-oh is at low HP, spam this move to get it down to low HP.

Remember, using Super Effective moves at the beginning and not very effective moves later on helps.

Try to use the move False Swipe, It whittles down Pokemon but keeps a Pokemon at 1 HP. Inflicting a status move like Paralyzing will help too, so try to whittle it down as much as possible and throw lots of balls!
