im totally not for avatars from gaia.. people who dont own a gaia account would have a bare naked avatar, would make them look cheap.. uploading own pictures is not good as well.. I see it.. 1.000.000 ppl will have Pokémon avatars.. or bad designed PKMN avatars with bad edited MoGas instead of Pokémon there.. that would make me puke so badly..
I think the percentage to catch them should slowly rise as HP goes down. I'm trying to catch a smok, even at 5 HP left, it's still 37% to get catch it. I lost all 4 starseeds gathered that day from trying to catch it.
