when guzma tried to catch a nihilego, he just ran at it. so… does that mean he was just going to wrestle it to the ground and force it into a ball? is that just how he catches pokemon?
because while i can see someone doing that to get a wimpod… does that mean he dive-tackled a spinarak? does. does he even bother weakening the pokemon. does he just dive-tackle them until they surrender? because that sounds like something he’d do.
just imagine him finding a scyther and being like “okay that’s a bug with arm scythes i fucking want it” and you think he’s gonna send out golisopod to weaken it but no, he just runs at the scyther and fucking rugby tackles it to the ground. and the scyther is just like “ARCEUS FUCKING CHRIST WHAT THE HELL I’LL GET IN THE BALL I’LL GET IN THE BALL!”
it’s a flawless strategy but no one else in team skull can get it to work.
