I want my level 34 golbat to use mean look on it but it flees before I can do anything please explain this and give some tips
Get a Golbat and teach it Mean look. Then give it the item quick claw so it will attack first. Use Mean Look so that Mesprit can't escape. Then chisel down its HP with fighting type moves and catch it.
try to level up your golbat so its speed rises.
make sure you have lots of ultraballs/a masterball to catch it with.
Hope I helped ! :)
I like to use Haunter better, caught mine in turnback cave with mean look. Train it to get hypnosis and to level 55 so its speed is faster.
