I get Arena Trap is a great ability on it, but come on...
Again you have a point.
I just liked having Team Rocket in the game despite how much better they were in Gen 1. Things like having them in Gen 2 made the Gen 2 games real sequals to the Gen 1 games. I liked the continue story, and in their remakes I like how you find out that Giovanni was the father of your rival Silver.
Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed seeing Team Rocket again too, but honestly they weren't even a shell of what they used to be. It was as if WWE's current Creative Team wrote the Rocket Storyline in Gen 2. Just wasn't as great as it could have been.
Mew, Shaymin, Celebi and Manaphy are in the same group here.. All have Base 100 Stats which makes them powerful in UU, Above the norm in OU and too weak in Uber. They only differences are the abilities/movesets in the end.. (Hydration Calm Mind Manaphy and Drizzle Politoed are the most OP Combo that has ever existed..)
Shaymin got screwed due to having to rely on Choice Scarf/Specs due to a bad moveset.
Mew is the Jack of all trades but Master of Jack Shit. Great moves but it doesn't have the Bulk or Attack to back them up without tons of setting up. Hence why it's a staple in Baton Passing Teams.
Manaphy is literally the demi-god of Rain.. (Kyogre being god of the Sea, Earth and 'fucking yo shit up'). Tail Glow increasing Sp. Att 3 Stages straight away, Rest not keeping Manaphy asleep and Surf/Ice Beam/HP Grass/HP Electric just fucking people up after a single Tail Glow.
Celebi is just a fucking nightmare unless you have Scizor.. Even then, they all carry Hidden Power Fire.. Recover, Calm Mind, Psychic and HP Fire.. Or - Heal Bell, Recover, HP Fire and Psychic or Earth Power (For Heatran)
2 of those have bounced between UU/BL/OU (Mew/Shaymin), Celebi has been OU almost constantly and Manaphy has to be Uber due to the huge amount of Rain Teams in OU.

Still, 1 HP and asleep and it's taking forever.
If I am correct, I believe Paralysis makes catching easier than Sleep does. Giratini shouldn't really be giving you to much problems with catching anyways.. (At least I don't remember it being too difficult to capture.)
