I hate Raikou.
He's is the only legendary Pokemon I've never gotten in both Gold and Crystal.
I have Entei, Suicune, HO-OH, Lugia, a level 100 Chikarita, a Lapras that could faint level 40s at level 10, a Dragoniar that's a pwnsome Elemental Master.
I've gotten 777 on the slots in the Casino twice in a row, a level 71 Ditto, and over 300 hours of gameplay.
And I still haven't gotten that bloody Pokemon!
The only reason I have a Haunter is because it knows a move that can prevent Raikou from fleeing.
But then, Raikou uses ROAR.
Haunter was a Gastly when I first caught him.
I trained him to level 60, instead of staying at 40, like he was suppost to.
And since my lowest level Pokemon on my party is my level 45 Lapros, I can't weaken him so I can catch him.
I even have come with flawless method so I can encounter Raikou more often.
I have Ultra Balls, Fast Balls, Level Balls, Love Balls, and others yet I can't catch that bloody thing!
You know that circle in the map at Jouto (sp?)?
Yeah, I call that 'The Loop' and I circle is back and forth in order to encounter Raikou and I often clear it in a couple of minutes.
AND STILL RAIKOU RUNS AWAY!
If I could do all of the things above, I would.
And he would still get away.
Oh, and that level 71 Ditto?
Yeah, I kept him in the Daycare so I could get Poke Eggs and certain baby Pokemon.
But one day the eggs stopped coming.
So, I caught another Ditto and did a swap.
I did 'The Loop' once and there was my new egg.
I was going to release the old Ditto because he wasn't useful anymore, but then I saw that he was level 71.
He started at level 10 when I first caught him.
Anti-Prior Device is breif Stargate reference.
Leaves these Psyhic guys temporarily immobile.
Used on Raikou, against Teleport.
...I think my entire Poke party right now is male.
Even my trainer.
I am female.
