Gen III/IV Catch Rate Calculator

Other catch rate calculators: Gen I, Gen II, Gen V, Gen VI/VII, Gen VIII, Gen IX

To approximate your chances of catching any Pokémon in the third- and fourth-generation Pokémon games, enter the appropriate information below. To learn more about how this works, see the Gen III/IV Capture Mechanics page.

Shadow Pokémon? If you are playing Pokémon Colosseum or Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness for the GameCube and this Pokémon is a Shadow Pokémon, select the appropriate option.

Approximation of current HP:

Note that in Ruby and Sapphire only, if the Pokémon is badly poisoned, it does not count as poisoned.


Your Pokémon's gender:

If checked, you will see the results for each possible HP IV if they would yield different results; otherwise, you'll see the overall chance assuming you know nothing about the IV. This is only very meaningful at full or exactly 1 HP, since the approximation of the Pokémon's current HP is not exact.
