Low Capture Rate

I'm attempting to tame a Sprog Cog, but I'm not having much luck, Databases that I've consulted report that the capture rate for this creature is 8%, meaning that after about 13 battles, I should have one willing to be tamed. I've probably killed over 40 of them, and not one has displayed the hearts over its head. Is there a certain item I need to tame this creature, or is there a way to increase its taming rate? This is rapidly getting discouraging.
