Togetic's Low Catch Rate In Pokemon GO Is Driving Players Up A Wall

Anyone who comes across Togetic in the wild will want to catch it — I mean, look at the cute 'lil bugger. Adding Togetic to your collection through a wild encounter may be way harder than it sounds, however.

Players, naturally, are trying to catch it. One problem, though.

People are documenting Togetic capture attempts, and they are excruciating to watch:

It took me almost 20 min and I was certain after all that he was gonna run. But I got solo lucky. Especially considering I just started playing again 2 days ago after months of not playing. I used to have HORRIBLE luck playing. But maybe my licks changing
