The Heal Ball (Japanese: ヒールボール Heal Ball) is a type of Poké Ball introduced in Generation IV. It can be used to catch a wild Pokémon. A Pokémon caught in a Heal Ball is fully healed.
In the core series games
When used from the Bag in a wild encounter, it attempts to catch the wild Pokémon with a catch rate modifier of 1×.
If caught, the Pokémon's HP, PP, and status are fully restored. From Generation IV to VII, since Pokémon sent to the Pokémon Storage System are fully healed, this healing is only applicable if the caught Pokémon is placed in the party (in games in which Pokémon sent to the Pokémon Storage System are not healed, it is applicable regardless).
If used on an Ultra Beast, the catch rate modifier is instead always set to 410/4096× (~0.1×).
Fling fails if the user is holding a Heal Ball.
