I know the chances are pretty low and it IS just chance, but what is more useful to raise the chances?
Is it better to put them to sleep or to paralyze them?
And what kind of ball? Is Ultra Ball better, or Dusk Ball since he's in a cave?
So far I think I've had to shut off my game 50 times because it just won't get caught :\

Try to make it fall asleep, then use either a Dusk Ball (because you are in a cave) or a Timer Ball (after a few turns have gone by) to increase your chances. I got lucky and caught it with a normal Pokeball.

Ok if you want to know the health of arcticuno, it's best to use false swipe to get it to 1 hp. My team was something on the lines of meganium, gyrydoes, snorlax, togetic, ho-oh and haunter. I used an ultra ball so nothings impossible

if you can only see 1-4 red bars of health left and its paralyzed or asleep and using dusk balls, the catch rate is roughly 14-17 where 255 is a guaranteed catch. since the catch rate isnt 255 a new formula is put into place and that will put your catch rate at about 16-19. with the new formula a random number is generated everytime the ball shakes and if the number is larger than the 16-19 the catch fails if the number is lower than 16-19 it will shake again and repeat until caught or fail.
