===Inheriting Poké Balls===
Prior to Generation VI, all hatched Pokémon are obtained in a standard red-and-white {{balli|Poké Ball}}.
 
Starting in Generation VI, the Poké Ball of the female Pokémon will be passed down to its offspring. In Generation VII, if a male and female Pokémon of the same [[Pokémon (species)|species]] are bred, the offspring will have an equal chance of inheriting either parent's Poké Ball. Despite being able to produce offspring of either species when bred together, {{p|Nidoran♀}}/{{p|Nidoran♂}} and {{p|Volbeat}}/{{p|Illumise}} are still considered different species and the male's Poké Ball will not be inherited when breeding with its female counterpart.
In Generation VI, male and genderless Pokémon (including {{p|Ditto}}) have no impact on the type of Poké Ball inherited; as such, when breeding a male or genderless Pokémon with Ditto (which is the only way to breed certain species), the offspring is always obtained in a standard Poké Ball. In [[Generation VII]], when breeding a male or genderless Pokémon with Ditto, the Poké Ball of the male or genderless Pokémon will be passed down to its offspring.
 
For the purposes of inheriting Poké Balls, parents in a [[Master Ball]] or {{ball|[[Cherish}} Ball]] are always treated as being in a standard Poké Ball.
