"Annoying trainers in Pokémon Gold and Silver (and the remakes) will call you every once in a while...and some call to say that they failed to catch a Pidgey. Yes, a Pidgey. You have about a 33% chance of catching Pidgey that's at full strength with no status conditions and a plain old Poké Ball, yet they were trying and couldn't catch it!"
I'm not going to remove this, but I will question just how much of an epic fail it is. We never get to know what kind of strategy this guy was using, and so this failure could be chalked up to him underestimating his own mon's strength and constantly OHKO-ing the Pidgey. It's happened to me more times than I care to admit, although not always with a Pidgey.
