Question About Colosseum/XD Glitches
« on: September 19, 2015, 08:10:27 am »
Not tried this myself yet as clearing out and restarting either game would take me a while, but I had an idea about a potential glitch.

I've searched online to see if anyone has tried this, but found nothing yet.

I am reasonably certain that in Colosseum and XD the AI is programmed to switch if any of their Pokemon are under the effects of a move such as Yawn or Perish Song (this is certainly the case with higher-level trainers, such as those in the Orre Colosseum, and some in-game bosses such as Gorigan and Evice). My question is what would happen if the opponent switched out their Shadow Pokemon on the same turn you tried to catch it - would you potentially be able to capture another Pokemon on their team?

I would assume there is some sort of mechanism to prevent this from ever happening, but, as I mentioned, I have not found any details of this anywhere else. If anyone's willing to try it or has already done so, feel like sating my curiosity? :)

Wouldn’t the Snag Ball be thrown before the opponent’s switch takes place?

I'm not sure - Bulbapedia lists switching and using items as both being at +6 priority in Generation 3. I'd imagine it would, though. That's disappointing.
