    Easy Way to Catch Lugia!

    First, get 10 ultra balls and surf to Whirl Island and go to exit 3(the right one and closest to Olivine City). Go to the up one ladder "F" then go down to ladder "H." Surf down until you reach the end of the rocks and turn left. Enter "I" Tunnel, then save! Surf up to him and press a button. (BEST pokemon for catching LUGIA: Feraligetr: WATER, ELECTRIC, level 45-75 and when lugia uses safeguard you only can catch him with a master ball. If you use ultra ball wait until it fades, then keep using ultra balls!)
