Aren't there Pokemon that have abilities that prevent them from running? Anyone know if they'll work on the legendaries or are they an exception or something?

I caught both of them now, with Ultra Balls. The Quick Balls didn't seem to cut it. If anyone cares, they can continue to flee while asleep, so putting them asleep then using a lead Pokémon such as Wobbufet (I caught one semi-early) with an ability similar to Shadow Tag.
Yeah You have to put them to sleep early on though because they can still Roar out of the battle (think of Roar as scaring you into running away).

But don't trapping moves have a negative priority over running Pokemon? I remember in Diamond I tried Mean Looking Mesprite multiple times, but it fled before I actually had time to use the move.

Which is why you should get it to sleep first OR use a Wobbufet with Shadow Tag which is Mean Look without being a move

The sleep condition stays until it awakes from it normally in battle.

Which will never happen if it constantly flees.

Iirc, I experienced this in RSE, which I grew up with. I'm just used to it. Deal.

THe attack false swipe will help you catch anything. I know for a fact scyther learns this move at lvl 16. It always leaves the enemy with at least 1hp letting you weaken it as much as possible.

I killed their health, used sleep, then used the move block, then taunt to stop roar, then used Dusk Balls

Oh, so it's something that isn't a glitch, I assume? That sucks I have a few quick balls I can try though.
Meh, I would rather use AR if it got that complicated.
