Can research reward Moltres Flee? Verdict: I would say NO but careful of the glitch?

Do we have any reports of Moltress being able to flee?? I know we cant run from it, but can it run from us?


#2

I have not heard any reports of Moltres fleeing. I have read multiple reports of people using dozens of balls but Moltres waits for you to catch him.


#3

perfect! ill go for the pinnap berries then…:smiley:


#4

I have read that it doesn’t flee but that didn’t stop me from using golden raspberry just out of sheer excitement of catching first Moltres.


#5

Does not flee.


#6

It does not flee. You can run from it and catch it anytime later. Just in case, catch it ASAP


#7

I had my daughter catch it with a pinap berry for extra Moltres candy.


#8

It may not flee, but you might still want to stock up on Pokéballs. If you have a Field Research to do nice/great/excellent throws, then there’s a fair chance you’ll complete it on Moltres.


#9

I end up using Pinup berry for the extra candy. It took me 8-9 great throws with Ultra balls and it didnt flee so with all your help and reports it looks like its a sure catch!


#10

No way
Run away.
I just graze and ultra
I dunno why…
Already had 2 Moltes before.


#11

Sorry
Not graze

#12

I kinda doubt that’s true…


#13

2 from raid… and 1 from research


#14

How ya like me now?


#15

jealous… :frowning:


#16

It doesn’t have a 100% catch rate, but it has a 0% flee rate


#17

I had to use like 20 balls to catch my daughter’s Moltres. But it never ran away and she still got it.


#18

Thats impossible. Niantic set it up where the Moltres won’t flee. You have to catch it.


#19

So on Thursday, am I going to get my 3rd straight Moltres?


#20

My guess: they change the research pokemon every month. Next month = articuno? I hope so as that and mew and tauros are all the gen 1 i dont have yet
