Rare Pokemon Trick
When you come to a rare pokemon that you can only catch once, such as Usocky, Lugia, or Houou, go right next to the pokemon but do not press any buttons. Save your game immediately. Now fight the pokemon as usual. If you catch him, then don't worry, you don't need the code. If you lose, however, or you accidentally kill the pokemon, shut off the game without saving. When you turn it back on, you will be right in front of the pokemon and you have another chance to catch him. You can keep doing this until you finally capture it!
