Inheriting Poké Balls
Prior to Generation VI, all hatched Pokémon are obtained in a standard red-and-white {{i|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.
