My fairly basic routine of catching Pokemon is trying to lower their HP as much as possible (or down to 1HP if I have someone with False Swipe), then I either put them to sleep or paralyze them. Then, depending on what point of the game I'm at, I'll either use the best Poke Ball available to me at that point, or a Dusk Ball once I have a good stock of them (since a majority of my Pokemon gaming is at night). Generally I'll just keep throwing balls or put it back to sleep/paralyze it until I catch it, sometimes using a random ball at some point just to see if I'm lucky.

One thing I've always done though, is hold up+B the moment the Pokemon goes into the ball, even though I've known for years it doesn't do anything. Just more of a habit at this point, I guess.
