Poké Ball

5,818 bytes removed, 19 June
Types of Poké Balls
Prior to Generation VI, all hatched Pokémon are in a standard Poké Ball. In [[Generation VI]], a [[Pokémon breeding|bred]] Pokémon will be in the same Poké Ball as its mother, unless its mother was in a Cherish Ball or Master Ball in which case the Pokémon will be in a Poké Ball; Pokémon bred from a male or genderless Pokémon and {{p|Ditto}} will hatch in a standard Poké Ball. In [[Generation VII]], Pokémon bred from a male and a Ditto will inherit the father's ball as well and if two Pokémon of the same species in different balls are bred, the resulting offspring will be in either the mothers or father's ball.
 
===IntroducedBasic inPoké Generation IBalls===
The following Poké Balls were introduced in {{game|Red and Green|s}}, and have appeared and been available in all games since then, with the exception of the Safari Ball, which is only available in Generations I, III, and IV. They were developed by [[Silph Co.]], with the development of the [[Master Ball]] factoring into the plot of the Generation I games and their remakes heavily.

===Introduced in Generation II===
The following Poké Balls were introduced in {{game|Gold and Silver|s}}. These Poké Balls were not available in [[Generation III]] or in {{game2|Diamond|Pearl|Platinum}}, but made their return in {{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}}. Seven of them are made from [[Apricorn]]s by [[Kurt]], while the last, which is not made from Apricorns, is seen by some to be a counterpart to the Safari Ball, since is only used in the [[Bug-Catching Contest]] in [[National Park]]. All eight of these Poké Balls have the same animation as a normal Poké Ball when sending out or recalling a Pokémon, rather than the variety of colors and special effects the Poké Ball variants released in other generations have.
 
When a Pokémon in one of these Balls is used in a link battle in Generation IV, it will appear as an ordinary Poké Ball, regardless of if the link is made with a Johto or Sinnoh-based game. Using a Pokémon in one of these Balls in one of the {{gdis|Battle Frontier|IV}} facilities will show it as it should appear during the battle, but as an ordinary Poké Ball if the battle is saved to the [[Vs. Recorder]] and played back. Trading a Pokémon in one of these Poké Ball variations into {{3v2|Diamond|Pearl|Platinum}} or registering it in [[Pokémon Battle Revolution]] will cause it to display as a normal Poké Ball, though if the Pokémon is traded back into a Johto-based game or transferred forward into Generation V, it will regain its variant Ball.
 
In Generation IV, none of these Poké Balls can be held due to not existing in Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum.
 
In Pokémon data, information for these Poké Balls on the status screen and in battle is stored in a separate location from the variants introduced in other generations, so that the Pokémon can be traded back to Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum from HeartGold and SoulSilver and display an ordinary Poké Ball there (the data space for these balls being ignored in the earlier games).
 
In Generation VII, one of each ball (barring the Sport Ball) can be obtained, either on [[Mount Hokulani]] or from [[Samson Oak]], but they cannot be sold. In addition, in [[Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon]] only, one of each ball can be obtained from a [[Game Freak]] employee in [[Heahea City]] if the player shows him a Pokémon from a [[Virtual Console]] version of a Generation II game.

===Introduced in Generation III===
The following Poké Balls were introduced in {{game|Ruby and Sapphire|s}}. While the main four Poké Balls and the Safari Ball returned to central usage, these specialty Balls were only available at certain [[Poké Mart]]s in the Hoenn region, and the Luxury Ball only available via completion of certain quests in the games. Generally, they can be seen to be counterparts to Generation II's Apricorn Balls, which were not available in the Generation III games, with the Nest Ball and Level Ball, Net Ball and Lure Ball, and Luxury Ball and Friend Ball being very similar in effect to each other.
 
The Premier Ball is functionally identical to the standard Poké Ball; it is simply a premium (hence the name) given with the purchase of ten Poké Balls. Only one is given with each purchase of ten or more, so buying 20 or more Poké Balls still only yields one gift Premier Ball. To obtain multiple Premier Balls, the Poké Balls must be purchased in separate transactions of 10 at a time.
 
These Ball variants continued to be available in {{game|FireRed and LeafGreen|s}}, though most must be traded in from a Hoenn-based game, with only the Timer Ball and Repeat Ball available to be bought, and even then, only in {{OBP|Two Island|town}}. The Dive Ball's effect was altered, with it now having greater chance to catch Pokémon encountered on water rather than under it, as Hoenn-based games are the only ones where wild Pokémon can be encountered while using {{m|Dive}}. In Generation IV, all but the Dive Ball are readily available to be bought, though the Dive Ball can still be obtained through use of [[Pal Park]] and other special events. The Johto-based HeartGold and SoulSilver make the Timer, Repeat, and Luxury Balls hard to find once more, though the returning Apricorn Balls help to take their place. All of these Poké Balls can be purchased in Generation V. Additionally, the Timer Ball's effectiveness now increases much more quickly as the battle goes on.
 
Unlike the Poké Balls introduced in Generation I, these Poké Balls were developed by the [[Devon Corporation]].

===Introduced in Generation V===
Only one new Poké Ball was introduced in {{game|Black and White|s}}, though all Poké Balls of previous generations are programmed into the game, both as items and on the status screen. If the {{player}} cheats to get them into the game, the Apricorn Balls, Sport Ball, and Park Ball cannot be used to catch wild Pokémon, though the Safari Ball and Cherish Ball can. If a Pokémon is transferred to Generation V from an earlier generation with the [[Poké Transfer]], it will appear to have the same ball it was originally caught with.
 
In the [[Entralink|Entree Forest]], when a player "speaks" to a Pokémon, a Dream Ball appears in the player's Bag. As Poké Balls never fail in the Entree Forest and the Dream Ball can only be used there, the Dream Ball effectively never fails. However, any Poké Ball in the Bag can be used in the Entree Forest, not just the Dream Ball. Pokémon transferred from [[Pokémon Dream Radar]] are obtained in Dream Balls.

===Introduced in Generation VII===
Much like in [[Generation V]], only one new type of Poké Ball was introduced in [[Pokémon Sun and Moon]]: the Beast Ball, specifically designed to catch [[Ultra Beast]]s. Other Poké Balls (except the Master Ball) are barely effective against Ultra Beasts, with their catch rate modifier set to 0.1× regardless of their usual modifier. Conversely, Beast Balls are barely effective against Pokémon other than Ultra Beasts, having a catch rate modifier of 0.1× against all Pokémon that are not Ultra Beasts. In Pokémon Sun and Moon, Beast Balls were apparently developed by [[Faba]], building on the work of a predecessor. In [[Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon]], they were created by the [[Aether Foundation]], with help of the [[Ultra Recon Squad]].
 
In addition, the Apricorn Balls are once again available in Generation VII, although only one{{sup/7|SM}}/two{{sup/7|USUM}} of each can be obtained per game without trading.
