In the Pokémon Adventures manga
Like in the anime and the games, specialty balls do exist, although they are much more commonly used than in the anime. In ''[[PS026|Holy Moltres]]'', [[Team Rocket]] was shown to have caught the {{adv|Legendary birds}} in Ultra Balls. In ''[[PS035|And Mewtwo... Three!]]'', [[Blaine]] gave Red the [[Master Ball]], which Red used to catch {{adv|Mewtwo}} shortly afterwards. In ''[[PS101|Teddiursa's Picnic]]'', {{adv|Gold}} and {{adv|Silver}} received a Friend Ball and Heavy Ball, respectively, with Silver using his ball to catch an {{TP|Silver|Ursaring}}, while Gold used his to catch a {{p|Teddiursa}} for [[Maizie]]. Close to the end of the {{chap|Gold, Silver & Crystal}}, the [[Masked Man]] was shown creating a [[GS Ball]] and using it to catch {{adv|Celebi}}. In ''[[PS528|Innocent Scientist]]'', {{adv|Blake}} used Luxury Balls while trying to catch the {{p|Genesect}} controlled by [[Colress]], eventually succeeding. In ''[[PAXY28|Scizor Defends]]'', a Quick Ball was seen amongst the Poké Balls that {{adv|Y}} had used while trying to catch an {{p|Absol}}. Safari Balls have been seen being used by Red at the {{safari|Kanto|Kanto Safari Zone}}, by {{adv|Diamond}}, {{adv|Pearl}}, and {{adv|Platinum}} at the [[Great Marsh]], and by Silver at the {{safari|Johto|Johto Safari Zone}}. {{adv|Crystal}} and {{adv|Emerald}} have also been shown using special balls to catch Pokémon, with Crystal specializing in [[Apricorn]] balls and Emerald specializing in Poké Balls introduced in [[Generation III]]. Additionally, the three original types of Poké Ball are used to identify the Trainer's rank; most Trainers keep their Pokémon in Poké Balls, [[Gym Leader]]s use Great Balls, and [[Elite Four]] members and [[Frontier Brain]]s use Ultra Balls.
In the {{chap|Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon}}, Beast Balls were created byfor the [[Aether Foundation]] andby the [[Ultra Recon Squad]]Colress as a means of capturingcatching [[Ultra Beast]]s.
Like in the games, but unlike the anime, Pokémon placed in their balls don't recover from [[status condition]]s nor regain lost health, no matter how much time passes.
