Has anyone actually caught a wild meowth with a quick claw in pokemon sword?

  1. I know it's supposed to be 5% rate. I even have a pokemon with the compound eyes ability in the first slot of the party and I have tried over 40 times.

  1. I have tried and never got one either. Each one you try for is only 5% so even if you catch 100, you would not be guaranteed to find 5. So it's more luck than amount of tries.

  1. I suggest you to use Noibat with Frisk ability to farm for Quick Claws. It took me like 20 tries but I've received one relatively quickly.

  2. Best way to farm held items is to have a fainted pokemon with compound eyes in the first slot so that it's ability still works then a pokemon with frisk and the move Thief if you want in the second slot. You won't have to catch a million pokemon that way.

  3. Appreciate the answer. We'll keep trying. Haven't had as good luck as you! Once I use the move thief, if I don't get an item, can I run away? If I do get an item, must I catch the meowth or defeat it, or can i run away?

    Thanks again.
