The problem is, some pokemon, as Rattata, which befriending rate is approx. 10%, can't befriend me. I already have their area, and yet it doesn't happen.
The strange thing is the same thing was happening to Nidoran(f), but then when I fought one, it suddenly befriended, without needing a second trying.

Why it happens ? Does somebody know the inner mechanism of befriending Pokemon in these games ? The chances I take, or anything alike ?

Thank you so much !
Personally, you just sound unlucky. Btw, Nidoran(f) has a higher recruit rate than Rattata.
