2 words for you young man: false swipe

Refer to the FAQ to see a detailed guide about Rayquaza.

Frost Weaver Ive seen u reply to how to catch pokemon, and u always say false swipe. I havent seen the move in action and i dont have a sabeley, i have a ruby. What does false swipe do?

it is a move that always leave a Pokemon at 1 hp... it's your best friend at capturing a Pokemon ^^ It's a normal type move, with 40 PP and base 40 power.

i usually use super fang for legendaries. but if you dont have the superfanger ie raticate, then false swipe would be an option... and Rayquaza is on lv 70, how can it be sooo easy for you to defeat? try to use "not very" effective moves when his health gets low

How it's so easy to defeat? Two words: Ice Beam. Any Dragon with Flying as a 2nd type is easily killed by Ice Beam.

The point is to catch it not defeat it.

then just dont use ice attacks.

the problem is that Rayquaza's defense sucks in its natural state (well relatively compare to your super pumped up lvl 100 beings who are fully trained with EV)... the only way that Rayquaza can survive is still false swipe. When your'e higher level than your opponent, almost any attack can OHKO the opponent, as long as this is ingame ;p

In Ruby you can catch Zangoose, which naturally learn False Swipe. Alternatively, if your starter is Treecko, one of his evolutions naturally learns FS as well.

best choice is still Shedinja. Shedinja with protect and false swipe takes down Rayquaza rather very easily. The only way it can kill you is fly, so protect on the right time. It does take more patience that way, but it's safe.

Another method is just to save in front of Rayquaza, and just put it to sleep. Then, use a high power move that blows Rayquaza all the way down to red, and throw balls at it continously.

Do you have any master balls?

August 24th, 2004, 7:14 PM
does twister also work i heard if the oposing pokemon is stronger twister wont kill it

August 24th, 2004, 7:20 PM
If you have a kyogra at about 50-60 ice beam leaves him with just a little bit of HP

August 24th, 2004, 8:10 PM
Then you're probably lucky or something...Ice Beam usually OKHO's any Dragon/Flying type if there isn't a major level difference. And that's only a 10 level difference...which isn't much.

When i tried to catch mine on sapphire my kyogre wat sum were around there...and it would either leave it with just a little bit of HP (no more than 10) are kill it
