This thread starts with a story, so bear with me:
Last night, I was playing my old copy of emerald, when I decided to pop by the weather institute. I saw that there were storms in route 129, and decided to go hunting for giant water beasts (nope, just kyogre). Anyhoo, as I apporached it, I didn't realise where the event started, and forgot 2 essential parts to catching legendaries: Saving and using stat affecting moves. Fortunately, after a few failed ultra balls while kyogre was down in the red, it used rest. I cut it's it's hp in half and captured it. First attemt at non-masterballing a legendary... without saving. Anyhoo there was much rejoycing (and saving).
What's your most epic capture?
