I've gotten his health down as low as possible and used Snorlax to keep him asleep. He uses all 10 of my Ultra Balls every time. How can he keep breaking out?!

Lots of Ultra Balls and a little bit of luck. Do you have a Pokemon with False Swipe? Just False Swipe it, put it to sleep, and keep chuckin' the Ultra Balls.

Besides that, it's all really just luck.

Its primarily luck. Of all those birds, I think Articuno is the easiest to catch. One tip- buy a lot more Ultra Balls. 10 is almost never going to cut it vs. a legendary pokemon. I'd say bring like 30-40 to be safe. If you need more cash, use the Vs. Seeker, which is the the Vermillion City Poke Center.

Articuno is the easiest to catch in my opinion you could wait till after the E4 and by timer balls but you don't need to just use lots of ultra balls and try and put it to sleep I caught in a poke ball once when it was asleep :)

Yeah, I would suggest getting more Ultra Balls too =] Other than that, just keep trying =)

Thanks, Guys! I was broke from buying that stupid Scyther that turned out to be a female... I hate female Pokemon, unless I'm breeding. I just keep and all guy team. haha. But, I do need more munnies, so I'll use my Vs. Seeker. Once again, Thanks guys!
