    Have you ever had a critical capture (the one where the pokeball makes a really fast sound and shakes in the air and rocks one time and click)? Were you like "WTF" the first time? Tell about it here! As for the second part, for me, yes. I was so confused, sort of like the time I ran into N's Ferroseed in Chargestone Cave.
    (I have a post about N's Pokemon too)

      In White I've had multiple critical captures, the first time I think was on like a Roggenrola or something relatively useless. I got very confused and upset that I thought I as skipping short bursts of time until I googled it. Hah that was a funny 3 hours in retrospect.

        This really qualifies for all games involved with Critical captures and since this is about personal experience, its been moved to Gaming Central.

          One NPC said critical captures are more common as you collect more pokemon. I hope this is true, but I've never heard such data from Serebii or Bulbapedia yet.

            Yep, this has happened to me a lot. Not sure what Pokemon they were off the top of my head, but it happened. I was like, "Wow, that was quick!" the first time. Not sure how it works exactly... but Quincy makes an intriguing point of discussion. Does filling up your Pokedex now give you something more than pride?

              Yeah, I had plenty of them... To tell you the truth, at first I was really like WTF just happened? o.O Is it a bug? o.O
              I do remember catching Delibird with a Critical Capture =D

              There are too many critical captures that happened to me in B/W to keep count of. And whenever they happened, I usually expect them to fully work, but I get frustrated when they don't.

                From Serebii:
                Quote:

                Critical Capture = floor((255,CatchValue) * Multiplier)
                Pokémon Caught ......Figure
                .............600+ ...........2.5
                .............450-599 ......2
                .............300-449 ......1.5
                .............150-299 ......1
                .............30-149 ........0.5
                .............0-29 ............ 0
                So, that NPC was correct. Catching 600+ pokemon almost triples your chance of a Critical Capture.

                  Yes , I had one recently in my White 2 game, however, I don't quite remember what pokemon it was. I was surprised to see it happen though.

                    LOL
                    I had plenty of these in the past. Some were broken out of, some were capture. Da first time I seen one, I knew something was different about it, for one thing, when the pokeball was tossed, it sounded like a missile. LOL

                    And next when the pokemon got sucked in the pokeball it, the ball shook really hard, before falling onto the ground, next one shake and..."click"

                    What I didn't know was, that the more pokemon you catch the more often it happens. That's a cool bit of tidbit there.

                    I've often got a lot of Critical Captures, most were on Pokemon I never ended up using.
