I threw a Pokeball at a Rattata I was trying to catch, it got trapped in the ball, but it never went to the "shake three times" animation.
Help please???

Same. Have had to reset the app but the Pokemon remains caught.
Whatever doesn't kill you, is either slow-acting or doesn't try hard enough.
Posting on GameFAQs, F.O.E.!

Happened to me earlier today, right when the servers went down. Don't worry about it, resetting the app and opening it back up acknowledges you caught that Pokemon.

This happens to me every catch. Have to restart the game every time. Luckily it keeps the catch

Lost one of my catches when it froze. Lost my poke balls that I used to catch it too. Which is double BS. Caught another and it froze but I still got the Pokemon but didn't get any XP.

Happens to me once in a while. It always keeps the catch, however, if you were going to catch it.
It's a secret to everybody.

Wait, you don't get any XP from when it freezes like that?

That explains why I am not level 5 yet. T.T

I know I didn't for at least one catch. I've caught 6 Pokemon and have 610 XP at level 3.

As did I, and it was a Pikachu which was pretty rare.

Just have to think it's only a game.
