Hey, hows it going. I was reading through the threads when I realized that people where making threads to ask questions so I decided to make this thread where you ask a question that relates to the game and maybe someone will come along and answer it.

So my question is, why is it that sometimes when you throw a poke ball or any ball it sometimes makes a sound like a jet while it travels to the wild pokemon and it goes very fast. When this happens I catch the pokemon in one tick. Do any of you know what this is called or how to do it again. I will try to see if I can post a video of it for those of you who don't know what I am talking about.

It's called a "critical capture", and it happens randomly but the actual probability has not yet been calculated.

Most critical captures usually catch the Pokemon successfully but there is still a chance of it escaping from the Poke Ball.

So yeah, question answered!

There's been a calculated version here: http://www.serebii.net/blackwhite/capture.shtml

It depends on how many Pokemon you've caught.
