I've been searching for a Sturdy Magnemite to Thunder Wave Latias into getting paralyzed, but no matter how many I kill, hoping it'll survive, it doesn't work. I checked when Sturdy came out, and it's in RSE, so am I just getting bad luck?

Generations III and IV
Sturdy makes the Pokémon unaffected by one-hit knockout moves.

But this site says it's any move that would kill it in one hit, not specifically the OHKO moves.(There's a difference)
It must have been an error. Negates 1-hit KO attacks is what the website says on the descriptions though for RSE. They must have not put for Gen 3 and 4, Sturdy only protects from OHKO moves. You should really do something about your firewall too so you would actually be able to look at Bulbapedia.
What he’s saying is that in gen 3, Sturdy didn’t negate all moves from OHKOing, it only negated OHKO moves
And in gen 4 too.
Ah, okay.
