what's the deal with max repel and the rare cats?

i've been trying to catch them by staying in an area [route42 with 1 small patch of grass] checking the pokedex till they come in then using max repel and walking through the grass.... but they never appear while the repel is working... when it wears out and i don't use it again are the only times i've run into them, but i've NEVER run into them while i had max repel on....

so it got me thinking

am i just unlucky?

probably

should i be using regular repel?

i thought they did the same thing, just max did it for more steps....

should i have some lower lvl pkmn in my party? are the "low level pokemon" its repeling based on party or just generally low pokes?

my party is all 60+ so i don't know if that matters

i've already caught 1, got 1 down to sliver of life, and put some work in on the 3rd. i can be in the same place as them and use max repel x20 or till i run out and never run into them. then i give up with repel and try free-range i run into them usually right away. i'm staying in route 42 with only the one small patch of grass too, as i mentioned above, so there aren't many places for them to hide there.

i thought repelling was supposed to make it easier, but it seems like i'm just wasting $$$

any advice?

You need to have something under lvl 40 in order to bring out the cats/dogs. Repel, repels anything under your level, I believe this is for the first member of your party.

I'm pretty sure that it's just random.
