From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Is it worth noting that (in Emerald at least), Poké balls can be successfully thrown at wild Pokémon in the semi-invulnerable turn of Fly? I tried to catch Rayquaza several times in this way but it broke free of the Ball. Also, this is slightly off-topic, but I have confirmed that in Pearl and White, the semi-invulnerable stage of Shadow Force and Dig prevents capture. —<small>'''[[User:Team Magma Zangoose|<span style="color:#444444">Team Magma</span>]] [[User talk:Team Magma Zangoose|<span style="color:#A00000">Zangoose ⚡</span>]]'''</small> 02:19, 30 September 2012 (UTC)
