      I remember that rumor, But I tried to debunk it when I was a kid because I always tried the stupid DEFETELITE4WITHBUgS9999TIMES cheats. (the dodrio game boy tower helped a lot) and I found out you can catch him with pokeballs. I was proud of myself

        Mind over matter and coincidence, thats what happens most of the time.I remember how I got hooked wit pokemon....I found a book that had the orignal 150 pokemon (No mew cuz they were evil) and all sorts of interesting "Facts" that got me thinking some interesting things. The important thing is in the book it sad that mewtwo can't stand to be in a pokeball, so therefore a mater ball must be used. Also that same book made me believe bulbasaur was hard to catch in the wild (wut?) so I ended up picking it as my starter.

          When I was younger, my friend tried to persuade me that if you talk to Prof. Elm over and over again, he'd stop telling you he'd "call if anything comes up", and will get annoyed and give you a GS ball.

          I'd like to add that I wasn't gullible enough to believe him.

            I only just found out about catch rates like....a couple years ago. Except for the Masterball, of course.

            I always take it as a personal challenge to catch all of the legendaries with anything other than Masterballs. I caught my Reshiram in Black with just a regular pokeball, and it felt amazing to do so.

            Still, I always either do A+Down or A+Left or B+Down. Idk, I have heard that there is some insane math involved when the game calculates whether a pokemon is caught when you throw the ball at it, and that any button-mashing does nothing, but I still push the buttons. Like vizarod said in an earlier post, "It's a force of habit".

              I used masterball because i didn't want to put so much effort into it seeing as he was the last legendary but if i feel like having fun i use lesser balls now days i try to get everything without masterballs its just more fun to me anyways

              Lol I've never heard of that rumor before, the only rumor I knew of was the one of Mew supposedly being under the truck, but I tried and could never even interact with it so I knew that probably wasn't true.

                I heard of the rumor, but it was after I had already played RBY. I did use the Master Ball on him, but I don't remember why. Knowing me, it was probably because I had forgotten to buy Ultra Balls.

                  Only in FRLG could that truck be useful. It gives you lava cookies. XD

                    I think some people are missing the real point to hitting down/up and B when they throw a Pokeball...I don't think I ever really believed it upped my chances, but it was fun to believe it did...gaming is full of absurd, faith-based actions like that...as gamers I bet we do countless, pointless tricks like that that we think are important but have no effect on the game engine/math. I'm going to try to contemplate some others...

                      I catched Mewtwo with an Ultra Ball, because I thought it wouldn't be right catching the strongest Pokémon with a Master Ball. I mean, he deserves an epic fight, right?
                      I had a quite useless Master Ball, until I found a Shiny Geodude (FR).

                        Speak for yourself. I don't game to perform pointless "absurd, faith-based actions" that have no effect whatsoever (especially when playing RPGs that are heavily stat-based).

                          All this talk of pressing A/B to make it easier when catching Pokemon reminds me of a song...
                          Anyone here ever heard of "Pokemon, What Happened to You?" By Alex Day?
                          It also mentions the truck!!

                          I will admit, I always had a routine of sorts that involved pressing buttons when throwing Pokeballs to make catching easier. It's a way of life!

                            I remember Mewtwo...I used the Master Ball on Articuno, and when I learned there was a Mewtwo as well, I was like "wait, wat?" So I battled it, put it to sleep, and spent 40 Ultra Balls and 20+ Great Balls on it. I started panicking because I only had the 3 Pokeballs left and didn't save so...throw Pokeball. Catch.

                            And ever since then, every legendary I have caught was with a Pokeball. I know, mathematically, it's kind of stupid, but I still never use anything else.

                            Back when the only Pokemon games to play were RBY, I didn't know many other people who had the game. I didn't have the internet (lol, even for quite some time after) and I didn't really buy magazines about Pokemon/gaming, either. So I heard little to none of the rumours that most people would have heard back then; unfortunately this was one of them.
                            I did know a kid who liked to bs about the the games though, and he told me that Cerulean Cave had ridiculously strong Pokemon in it, and there were two Pokeballs at the end, and you had to choose one, and if you chose the wrong one, your GameBoy would permanently shut down and would never work again.

                            Anyway back to the topic, with Mewtwo being the rarest Pokemon in the game (bar Mew), I can understand the logic kids would have had in thinking he could only be caught with the MasterBall- what with there only being one Mewtwo and one MasterBall.

                            Never heard this rumour before.
                            It might just be because it was one of the harder Pokemon in the game and with recover, it was very difficult to catch, so it is an easy thing to believe.

                            I had never heard this rumor, but I saved the Master Ball for Mewtwo nonetheless. I didn't even really believe that the Master Ball worked 100% of the time, so I ended up battling Mewtwo and putting it to sleep before using the Master Ball.

                            I did remember hearing about the rumor of pressing B+Up turned your Poke Ball into a Master Ball, and even though it was probably only my mind playing tricks on me, it seemed to work almost all the time, so I kept using it. Even to this day, even though I know it doesn't do anything, I still press Up+B when trying to catch a Pokemon, but it's just out of ritual now.

                              I knew it was not impossible to catch mewtwo without the master ball, but I always thought it would be super hard without it. So I to this day still save my master ball for him.

                                I caught Mewtwo in a Premier Ball in Pokemon FireRed.

                                Just sayin.

                                I think I had heard this rumor, but I never believed it because I was the proud owner of a Red & Blue version guide that told me all about Cerulean Cave, though that guided called it the Unknown Dungeon.
