The Leaden Ball can be used to catch Pokémon. It cannot be thrown very far, but is more effective if the Pokémon it's used on hasn't noticed the player. If so, it attempts to catch the Pokémon with a catch rate modifier of 2×. Otherwise, it has a 1.75× modifier.

During a battle, the modifier is always 2×, as the game defaults to that bonus being active, regardless of whether the Pokémon had previously noticed the player before initiating the battle.


Games Description
LA An improvement on the original Heavy Ball design. A ball that is too heavy to fly high or far, but it is highly effective if you manage to hit an unsuspecting Pokémon.
