False Swipe / Sleep Status are your primary options. Sleep is the strongest status condition along with Frozen, but Frozen is like impossible to induce. So yeah, put it to sleep and False Swipe it down to a guaranteed 1HP. I suggest using Crobat because it learns Hypnosis and Mean Look, while having a speed that is greater than that of Suicune's. Wobbuffet leads also help trap it.

Can synchronize pass on natures to legendaries (such as Suicune)? Or only regular pokemon?

I think that the nature is only changed when you are in a type of area that has pokemon: Grass, water, desert, etc. I don't think it changes the nature of the legend.

Well, Suicune would be found in the Grass.

Suicune's nature is set as soon as you talk to Bill's friend and put in the Ruby and Sapphire, which enable the Network (thing? to trade between RSE & ColoXD). You wouldn't be able to Synchronize either.

I'm sorry, I got confused and was thinking of Suicune like Mewtwo or the three birds.

Well actually, Synchronize only works in Emerald and DPPt. It wouldn't work on Mewtwo or the bird trio at all. XD

You'll just have to reset when giving the stones and hope for a good Suicune.

Hmm, didn't know Synchronize didn't have that effect until Emerald.

Yeah, I was saying that you couldn't use Synchronize on a poke that had a sprite outside of the battle (Mewtwo, Birds, etc.) and that stood still.

I don't quite understand what you mean here. I was talking about the Suicune in FireRed.

It doesn't work in FR and LG? Drat.
And what do you mean by 'giving the stones?'

Oh I didn't know that. Is that true for all the games?

Um, forgive me if my memory fails, but after you defeat Blaine, Bill asks you to take a ferry to the new islands. You complete some side mission against Team Rocket and find a Ruby and a Sapphire. You give these stones to Celio (Bill's friend) on Knot Island and they'll fix the Network Machine. This gives you access to Johto pokemon, and this is when Suicune's values are set. If you're looking for a specific nature for Suicune, you need to save and reset here.

Synchronize does not work in: FireRed/LeafGreen, Ruby/Sapphire, and Colosseum/XD. It only works in Emerald and beyond to DPPt.

You can use Synchronize on stationary legends, such as Rayquaza or Giratina.

Oh yes, I completely forgot about that. Sorry.
And this clears things up a lot. Thank you!

FYI, the stationary legends in Emerald cannot be Synchronized. That wasn't added until the 4th generation came out. Just wanted to throw that out.

Well, syncro CAN work if it is the same nature as the set nature in the RNG.
Also, you can SR for Mewtwo and the birds, seeing as how they can be shiny.
Thanks for the info on Suicune though, as I'd like a shiny Dog (Although that would be very tedious work)

What is the best way to catch Kangaskhan? I threw a ball at one the first time I saw it, and it fled. Then I tried bait and it fled. Does it just come down to luck?

With big, tough creatures, I tend to creep a little closer and then throw Safari Balls at him. It usually works for me. But again, that's just me.

Bait never works for me. Never.

I usually tend to just inch closer, turn by turn. Eventually, after numerous failed attempts, I'll get lucky enough to capture one of the rare Pokemon of the Safari Zone (mind you this takes a really long time for the most part, depending on the Pokemon and whether it's tempted to run away a lot).

There really is no secret to doing it more easily, though.

Yeah it does, both FR/LG and R/S/E Glooms learn it at 44 according to Serebii.

For some reason the page may have just been copied for that bulbapedia link, it's the same levels as shown for Oddish on Serebii

Since it's not too hot of a topic...

Is there a trend of "lucky" profiles for FireRed, Leafgreen, Ruby and Sapphire?

I ask this, because I notice that nearly all of the "lucky" Emerald files begin with 3.
