    pick up x catch

    In the following dialog:

    A: - Is ten o'clock of for you?
    B: - Sure, I'll pick you up at 10 sharp.

    Could "pick you up" be changed by "catch you", like this:
    B: - Sure, I'll catch you at 10 sharp.

    If it is correct, regarding its usage, is it common?

    PS Feel free to correct any mistakes in this post.

    No, "catch you at 10" is not a typical replacement for "pick you up at 10". Some people do say "catch you later" sometimes, meaning "see you later".
