We all know about the Classic Bug Catching Contest on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I figured we should have a thread to talk about the best pokemon you have caught and mishaps and such while catching bugs.

I am doing it for the first time on my SoulSilver right now. All i can find are level 8 and 17 Caterpies.

I had the most successful run earlier today. I caught all of the Pokemon during the contest, filling out my Pokedex. I didn't win with my Scyther cause I lowered the HP too much.

My main mishap was not getting the Scyther that I really wanted. I guess next time I'll check.

I love the bug-catching contest! Once, on my old Silver game, I lucked out and caught a Scyther, then a Pinsir, I chose the Pinsir, and lost to a Scyther!!! I mean omg!

If this makes anyone feel better...I caught a Scyther that lost to a Pinsir?!...I wish I knew the level range...& I also hate the new feature that scores based on the condition of the pokemon you catch (if it's burned, poisoned, etc. with how much of it's HPs...) Oh let me rephrase the first part...I didn't even place...& I caught a Scyther...well there's today...not that I look forward to catching anything but a Venonat so I can have my Venomoth already...Oh & from ready the half-guide...it stated that they also give out points if it's Shiny...wat?...

I think it always was on the same days it is now but I have bad memory so whatever, anyway...

Time to lighten this thread up a bit...*nothing but negative news*...

I recently won a Bug Catching Contest with a Venonat LV16...I even beat a Paris which came in 3rd & a Scyther which came in 2nd...when I heard what came in second I started to panic a bit but then they said I came in first & I jumped for joy cause now I have my Venonat for my Team & it already accomplished a feat plus I would have had to wait til I got to Mahogony Town otherwise...

I caught it by simply using Stun Spore on it with my Weepinbell...& then just threw Sport Balls at it until it was caught...it took like 11 or 12 Balls for it to be captured...I didn't even look for anything else afterwards...

This makes me feel better about my last post &...more on the positive...

Tuesday April 13th
Pokemon = {pinsir} / Male / LV28
Health = Full
Status = None
Sport Balls used = 1
Place = 1st
Score;
3rd = Ed with Pinsir / 308
2nd = Don with Scyther / 313
1st = Luna with Pinsir / 351

P.S. I cannot find a {scyther} to save the human race in this park anymore at all...

I won with a full HP level 14 pinsir. I then remembered I had the superior Heracross, and would rather have gotten the shed shell.

So that was a bust.

Oh yeah...forgot to mention that I got a Shiny Stone for winning the contest but only got Sun Stones before which sucked...I would like a Dawn Stone from the Contest as it is more needed for me...& I tried catching a LV 14 Pinsir when I won that contest with my Venonat but no luck catching it with full HPs as it sucked my remaining Sport Ball supplies to nothing so...
