How To Catch Monsters-Non Careful Strike Edition
#1
it is possible to easily catch a monster with the move called Careful Strike, but careful strike is not always useable. here are some reasons why-Normal Immunity,Ghost Type,a Healing Move, and Healing Ability.

1. Normal Immunity-when the monster is immune to Normal Type attacks.

Now here's an example of a monster that has the ability

^that's Gilizar.

Now since hes 1 of the monsters that has this ability here are some ways to capture it.

a. use moves that will do barely any damage against them. Examples-hidden punch,sky slash,water spray. basically low power moves that have a power less than 70.(moves that are regularly effective on these monsters.)
b. use moves with types that it's resistant to. Examples- Sparkbite, Steel Slash,Insect Opposition,Flame Armor,Grass Rope(Note: these are just examples for Gilizar, if you want to see which types do barely any damage look on the monster's page on the Monsterdex)
c. inflict a status on it(example paralysis, burn,[yes fire types can get burned]poison[as well s poison types],bleeding,sleep,or freeze.beware some monsters may have (insert status name here)Immunity or Perfect Body-which no status's can be on the enemy monster.
d. ultimate box-Note: this can be used as a last resort if you tried the other .

2. Ghost Types

Since there has yet to be a monster with the combo Beyond Type[ability that lets you hit a monster with a move that it's usually immune to,unless the monster has an immunity ability of the type which i highly doubt it'll happen] + Careful Strike, ghost types can not be dealt with by normal means. Ghost types can be dealt with about all the same ways as monsters with normal immunity except-

a. ghosts types are only resistant to poison so maybe toxic bite would help in taking a ghost down.

b. use a monster with radiation ability like Futarik. you can spam moves that don't damage ghosts, or spam increasing stat moves.

c. ultimate box(only if you're desperate)
_________________________________________________________________________________________________________

3. Healing Move

Healing moves can cause problems when trying to capture wild monsters. Examples-Heal,Concentration Rest, Super Drain,Lunar Light,Light Restore. When faced with a monster with a healing move here are some ways to capture it.

a. inflict it with a status that may cause it to not move for 1-5 turns. Examples-Freeze,Paralysis,and Cringe.

b. use ultimate box-again last resort. use it in only extreme emergencies.

4. Healing Ability

Healing abilities can also cause problems and be aggravating when trying to catch wild monsters. Examples-Natural Heal,Regenerator,and Expert Regenerator.

now there are a couple ways to handle this problem-

a. use moves that'll cause statuses that will lower hp. Examples-Poison,Burn, and Bleeding. they will counter those abilities real easily.(watch out for Perfect Body+healing ability combo.)

b. have abilities to counter the healing ones. Example-Radiation

c. use ultimate box-last resort as always.

Okay I think that should cover the things that careful strike has trouble against. If i find any other,I will update this post with the info needed on that topic.

A nice way to take down some ghosts that are lower level is to use a radiation monster like Futairik. You can spam moves that don't damage ghosts or spam buffing moves.

My favorite non-careful strike way of catching monsters is thick fog 3x, low power attacks/radiation and then when enemy's hp is a multiple of 60+3 I use black shadow. Unless opponent heals, recoils or is normal never fails.

For high level monsters, if u dont hav 100Lvs thick fog, is really effective
