    Default How do you catch pokemon?

    Method A- Catch 6 by the end of the second route
    Method B- Get them from in-game events (like the magikarp salesman in yellow, and sudowoodo in HGSS).
    Method C- Stick with one poke through the entire game.
    Method D- Wait for a good poke, and catch it.

    I'm trying to become either a B or a D, but I'm still an A.

    A milder version of A: I catch a party of six but not necessarily limit my movement before getting five catched Pokémon. And some B/D when progressing through the game, you didn't think I'd go on with that Raticate the whole game, eh?

    ...which you'd need to catch later anyway if you try to get a full dex, which is one of the main goals of the game. It's not like they'd be expensive anyway, and the early ones have high catch rates, so you're most probably not using more than one ball per Pokémon.

    I'm like a A/B/D I'll get a team of six but if I see something that I want I'll boot one of my party members into the PC.

    D. I plan my team out beforehand, then catch them as I go through the game. If not enough of my roster is available early on, I'll trade some in from elsewhere and/or breed.

    D. If I can't find a poke until later, then I wait.

    I mostly use method D... I usually don't catch a lot of Pokémon at the beginning, but as I progress in the game, I catch/get the ones I want. Method B could apply to me too.

    D. I only get the ones I really want on my team. I catch more after I'm done with the game.

    I use method A quite a bit; I usually have six or more by the end of the second route, some basically becoming trade fodder for later on in the game. But I also make sure to grab a few in-game event 'Mon and I almost always have one high level brawler on my team.

    Hey, I like variety. It's the spice of life you know. ;)

    A/B if you just mean catching them, D for my teams.

    Whenever I enter a new area, I catch all the new species of pokemon that I don't have already, so I catch a lot of pokemon, but with respect to my team, I know which pokes I want so I wait until I encounter them to add them to my permanent team.

    B+D. Too lazy to search
    I've been trying sort of C lately, but not with one Pokémon, but with 3 or 4, so they can level up faster.
