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?
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 $$$
