There’s no need to go hunting for a yellow Pokeball because Jacq gives you three copies of the TM for False Swipe when you talk to him in his biology classroom and have at least 30 Pokemon species in your Pokedex. To find Jacq, go to the front desk at the academy and interact with the tablet to travel to the right classroom. This is in addition to the rewards track in the Pokedex itself that you view by pressing X.

False Swipe is physically incapable of knocking out a Pokemon, so it’s great when you encounter rare wild Pokemon and need to whittle down their health. Combine it with Spore or Nuzzle to increase your chances of catching a Pokemon even more.
