View Full Version : Oh! A bite..........It got away!

September 26th, 2003, 4:33 AM
Whenever I fish this I either get "Not even a nibble" or "Oh! a bite! ... It got away!" with any rod at any place. Why is this? :(

Don't worry, I had the same problem too! ^_^
They've made fishing a lot more complicated on R/S than on the older games. To usually catch a Pokmon with the fishing rod, you'll have to press the A button as soon as it says 'Oh! A bite!'. You may have to wait awhile, since it gets repetitive, but soon you'll get the hang of it! I hope I helped!

As soon as it says "Oh, a bite!" press A. You often have to do this several times, but eventually it'll say "A Pokmon's on the hook!" and you can battle it. It takes some getting used to. ^_^;

I had problems with this too until July when kairi told me how to do this!

Here is what you do:

-use a rod
-Wait for it to say "It`s a Bite"
-Tap the A Button until you get it!

Hope I helped!:)

I wish they kept fishing the same way as R/B/Y and G/S/C!

Oh wait, you are supposed to release A! o_O I've been playing Gamecube too much, lol. Sorry, I'll edit that...

Here's the method I use
when you fish, look closely, when "Oh! A bite!" flashes in your text box (it will always be under the line of dots) press A once. the text box will clear, and another line of dots will start to form. After a while (its a different amount of dots each time, you just have to pay attention) "Oh! A bite!" Will flash again under the line of dots. Once again, press A once. The process will keep repeating until it tells you that there is a Pokmon on the hook.
Note: If you press A before "Oh! A bite!" appears under the line of dots, you will lose your catch ("It got away...")

Willis_chong, do not revive threads over a month old. It's against the rules here. Take a look at the date the last post was posted at before you reply to something in the future, okay?
