all I want to do is catch a thing but it keeps breaking out and calling for help every turn.

it doesn't make the game harder. it just makes it take longer to catch things, it wears down my HP, and it's more frustrating, and I'm also afraid it might single-handedly make catching new pokemon suck throughout the entire game.

I never want to see this brought back.
Good. You didn't skip over this line of text. This part of the post is actually quite significant and very, very important.

They should probably just bring it back and allow the player to catch Pokemon when two are out like any other competent game developer would do.

I think it's meant to be easier than Horde for finding Hidden Abilities, since you can always switch in a Pokemon with Trace to identify which one has the ability. It would be nice if it could be limited in some way.

On the bright side, if you encounter a rare Pokemon and it's not the right gender for what you're looking for, you can let them call for help until you get the gender you want. Guarantee yourself females for breeding.

AFAIK - if you want them to stop calling for help, any status ailment will prevent it.

Apparently throwing a ball at one of two objects is just too complicated for the little guy.

Beating a Pokemon that calls for help and gets ignored makes me feel bad. Like damn all I want to do is get exp.

That's a good way to look at it. Maybe when I start getting into the breeding game that'll be useful.
