Pokemon GO glitch lets you bypass the catching animation during a Pokemon battle
Recently, a new glitch was discovered in Pokemon GO that cuts down on the amount of time it takes to catch a Pokemon. Players have found a way to bypass the catching animation during a Pokemon battle, saving a bit of time in the process.
During a battle, try holding the Poke Ball menu with one hand while attempting to catch the Pokemon with the other. You’ll then need to let go of the Poke Ball menu when the Pokemon starts wriggling around inside the Poke Ball. Next tap the screen to bring up the run away option. After you choose that, you’ll return to the map.
You can see if you managed to catch the Pokemon by looking at your journal. Note that an error message may appear indicating that your catch was successful.
