Pretty self-explanatory. For me it was Moltres. Took me 4 or 5 resets and like 70 Ultra Balls.

Probably Suicune on my first playthrough, considering i didnt know about it and probably used my master ball on Mewtwo.

Viridian Forest Pikachu, but only due to their rarity. It was the same way in the originals, too.

Mewtwo, as I wasted my Masterball on Articuno. :P All my Pokemon were very underleveled for Mewtwo too.

Suicune, just finding it is hard enough, but I saved a Masterball so I caught it straight away once it popped up on my screen. The hardest to actually catch (time-wise) would be Mewtwo, I had to reset sooo many times because I accidently killed Mewtwo or I run out of UltraBalls (I also used all my TimerBalls,GreatBalls and PokeBalls).

Chansey! hunted her for days... until I gave up ><
She barely appeared in the safari and when she does she immediately runs or never gets caught! I remember wasting 10 balls on one until she ran away =/ sad times, I really wanted to get Lucky egg from her but now it's so easy to get it so there's no point in trying

Either Chansey or Mewtwo, I used my masterball on Mewtwo but caught a Chansey as well.

This is an...oddly specific question. Haha. Anyway, I've never caught a Kangaskhan in this game, ever. So I'm gonna go with that. I've caught the almighty and elusive Chansey, but no, not Kangaskhan. If it weren't for Gale of Darkness, I probably would have never gotten one...until gen V anyway. lol

Hmm...thinkin' back on it, it seems; well, by me, anyways, that most of the difficult captures took place in the safari zone. Chansey, Sycther, Kangaskhan...Ya know, most of the rare pokes that appears in that game.

This was also the case in R/S/E I always found it hard to catch the pokemon that live in those areas. LOL

It's odd. I had next to no problem catching any of the legendaries in the game, including Mewtwo, who I somehow caught in a Poke Ball on the first turn with full health (meant to select Master Ball to get it over with, but was completely shocked/a little disgusted to find out a Poke Ball did the trick). And I never had any problem finding any of the rare Safari Zone Pokemon either. The most difficult Pokemon that I tried to catch had to have been Skarmory in the Sevault Canyon. I never really planned on using one and just wanted it to fill up my Pokedex, but I literally spent 15 minutes trying to catch one that I had False Swiped to 1HP and put to sleep. I know that it has one of the lowest catch rates for a regular Pokemon, but it surprised me at just how difficult it really was.

It's definitely Chansey for me. You throw a bait, it runs away, you throw a stone, it freakin' runs away! And it's so rare, too!
In second comes Articuno. I don't know why, but I've always struggled much more with Articuno than any other legendary birds...

One day I spent 5 hours trying to catch a Chansey in the Safari Zone. I didn't NEED to catch one there, but I wanted to. Probably the biggest waste of time ever though.

For me...
Legendary Pokèmon are Moltres. It took me several times for reseting a games and caught them with some Ultra Balls, but failure. So I giving up and defeat Moltres. My Master Ball already used to catching an Articuno.

Non-legendary Pokèmon in Safari zone are Kangaskhan, Rhyhorn, and Scyther. Its bit crazy to catching them with bait.
In normally adventure I found some difficult for caught a wild Pokèmon in water area like Horsea, Poliwhirl and Seaking because FRLF was my first Pokèmon games. So I am still noobness xD

Mewtwo, without a doubt. It kept Recovering, so I had to keep wearing it down. That, and it had a pretty strong Psychic.

Freaking Chanseys. And Kangaskhan.

And the typical legendaries.

Honestly, mine is either Skarmory or Electabuzz. Legendaries are never any trouble. The three birds are a complete joke with how easy they are to get, and Mewtwo is just hard to calculate your chances on. Skarmory because it's ****ing impossible to catch after being impossible to find, and Electabuzz for almost the same reason.
Also, Dratini.
