Prepare Items That Makes Catching Easier
To increase the chance of capturing an Alpha Pokemon, throwing Heavy type of balls on the back of the Alpha is recommended. We listed some of our recommended items below:
|Heavy Ball increase the catch rate when used in an eating Pokemon or attacking the back of an opponent. A very important item for Alpha catching. |
Leaden Ball → Star Rank 4
Gigaton Ball → Star Rank 5
|Stealth Spray |
|These items will allow you to sneak to the Pokemon that you want to catch.|
|Razz Berry etc||Using baits is really helpful to distract Pokemon. This will not only make it easier to capture and sneak.|
Attack The Alpha From Behind
If you want to capture an Alpha without battling, it is important to create a situation that you will not be noticed. Use Stealth Spray to hide the sounds of your footsteps and using Smoke Bomb to hide your location. Sneak until you reached their behind and throw a Pokeball.
Feather Ball From Very Far Distances Also Works
At higher Star Rank, it is possible to capture a lower level Alpha using a Feather Ball while standing from a safe distance. Its recommended to try first on the nearby lower level spawns before you target the higher level Alpha.
How To Catch Alpha Pokemon With Battle?
Decrease HP As Much As Possible
Try to decrease the Alpha's HP as much as you can so that it will be easier to catch. It is recommended to use Pokemon that can use False Swipe to leave opponents with 1 HP. Even if you escape the battle, the HP of the Alpha will be the same so if you only have one Pokemon left, fall back to heal up your party.
Parasect can be used in the early game since you can easily find one in the wild. For the late game, Kleavor is recommended because of its high attack stat and durability which is perfect for setting up False Swipe.
Make The Pokemon Drowsy Or Inflict Paralysis
When a Pokemon has status inflicted to them, it makes them easier to catch.:p: It is easier to catch if you go for paralysis or sleep, both of which do not cause additional damage after scraping HP. Finally, hurl Hyper Ball to opt for the highest catch rate in-battle.
