In the games, there have been a lot of Poke Balls, so I'm wondering what you're favourite Poke Balls are.

Oni Raichu's Favourite Poke Balls:
Unfortunately, I'm stuck between two Poke Balls. The first is the Poke Ball that everyone knows, the logo that's second to Pikachu, the very first, red and white Poke Ball! Take a look at it, folks:

http://veekun.com/dex-images/items/poke-ball.png

I suppose I like it so much because it was the start of each of my Pokemon adventures and because it's been the Poke Ball everyone imagines in their head when someone says the words, 'Poke Ball.'

The second, is the Master Ball. I don't believe in using the Master Ball because I think it takes the fun out of capturing the Legendaries or other Pokemon, but you've gotta admit that it's got style.

I like the Poke ball too. but when I want to catch a Legendary I'll use only one Master Ball for my "Ultimate Legendary" Pokemon.

Sounds interesting.

There are many PokèBalls. My favorites are the following in descending order:



Net Ball- It's a good Pokeball for capturing Water-type Pokemons. A good Pokeball for capturing legendary water Pokemons like Kyogre and Palkia.
Dusk Ball- A very good ball for capturing Pokemon at night. I also caught a Giratina using a Dusk Ball!
Master Ball- It has 100% chance of capturing wild Pokemons. Good for legendary Pokemons.



These are my favorite Pokeballs as of today.

When I saw this thread I thought it said "What are your favorite kind of balls?"

I personally think that Ultra balls are quite useful. They're not dependent on getting you a pokemon, but they're quite legible to catching you the pokemon. Of course, everyone loves the Master ball, but that just makes everything simpler than it needs to be.

Leeeeet's get ready for the Premier Baaaall! =O

You just know there's a cool backstory to it. Plus: free with every ten Pokeballs.

My favorite is the Poke Ball. It is the origional and the most common of all the Poke Balls.
I also like the Dusk Ball because of how it looks when a Pokemon comes out of one.

I'd have to say my favorite of all time is the Premier Ball:
http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/rsitem012.png It's like an inverted version of the Poke Ball. I don't think it has any special abilities, though, other than spicing up your party's look.


I also like the Luxery Ball:
http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/rsitem011.png Not only do I like the look of this ball, I like it's effect, too. When the Pokemon are happy, I'm happy, too ^^; lawlz


Oh! And before I forget, the Master Ball is one of my favorites as well, for a simple reason; it has a big "M" on it, which obviously stands for "Motsuko", and definitely not "Master". xDD;
http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/rsitem001.png <--- notice the "M"? Yeah, that's the one I'm talking about... in case you didn't see it xD

I've always have had best luck with the Great Ball, I don't know why.
When it comes to catching the fleeing Pokemon, the Quick Ball also comes in handy. I love that ball. xD

Yeah, I also like the Premier Ball. I wasted one on Rayquaza because I thought it was another version of the Master Ball.

Also, note that I made a spelling error in the thread title, it should be, 'Your Favourite Poke Ball', not 'You're Favourite Poke Ball'.

Poke and Premier Balls, just because they're fun in their own ways. I have good memories with both, too:

Pokeball-I usually end up catching legends with them, somehow. In particular, I remember catching Lv.70 Groudon in Emerald with a regular old Pokeball. It was in green or yellow HP, I believe. Insane luck, I guess...

Premier Ball-I caught a Shroomish with one once (I love Breloom). It wouldn't have been that special, but I just remember sending out Breloom and winning with it all the time, in Diamond and in Battle Revolution, and whenever I saw the white and red Premier Ball that sent it out... it just felt like a special Breloom, sort of. I'm just kinda wierd. :P

Ultra Balls are my favorite....They are very good at catching and look good.

Also, note that I made a spelling error in the thread title, it should be, 'Your Favourite Poke Ball', not 'You're Favourite Poke Ball'.

That's why you don't make thread titles when you're drunk, dear. Or half-asleep. Either way.

Anyway, my favorite would have to be Dusk. Not only do I like the look of it opening (Ooh, bursts of purple fog.), but because I tend to play Diamond at night, it's helped me catch most of the Pokemon I own. Not even Timer Balls have helped me out this much.

Second favorite, of course, would be the Ultra Ball. Master Ball's too much of a hassle for me to get (because I can't trade and can't be arsed to rape cloning glitches on any game), so Ultra Ball's practically the next best thing. And even then, personally, if given a choice, I like the fact that the Ultra Ball gives me more of a challenge because there's always a chance an Ultra will break open, even if you've gotten all the conditions right. A little bit of a thrill, I suppose.

I perfer ultra balls to master balls
Reason: I would`t want to waste a master ball on a moltres since ultras do much better with moltres.

What the heck, you people are so bland. :O Ultra? Original? Not one of you mentioned the Dive Ball. >O

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/w/upload/0/0e/DiveBallSpriteSmall.png Dive Ball (http://archives.bulbagarden.net/w/upload/8/85/SugimoriDiveBall.png)
It's unique to catch undersea Pocket Monsters, and it's entry release is also awesome in my opinion. Ever since it's creation, I've always been a top fan of the Dive Ball, and always will. :D I used to do the Solaceon Town Newspaper job in Sinnoh just to get Dive Balls. XD By far my favourite selection when it comes to devices to capture Pokémon. :D (Even if it's not the best above water)

I like the master-ball because of its limited nature. It's unique! Regular poke balls are a dime a dozen, and every other kind of poke ball can be mass-produced somehow. Master balls, on the other hand, come one, at most two per game. Scarcity + utility + aesthetic charm (purple is my favorite color) = value.

The MB is a gem among trinkets.

I did enjoy the Dive Ball in generation III. But after I found out you couldn't even dive in D/P, I was like, "... Well this sucks ._."
But yeah, it was a good ball.

I also like the colour...

Remember the first movie where Mewtwo had his own custom ball... If only they had it in the game then it will definitely be my favourite!

Dusk Ball- A very good ball for capturing Pokemon at night. I also caught a Giratina using a Dusk Ball!
I've never even heard of that, but given its effect that's definitely my favourite now.

Otherwise though, and for looks, Premier Ball.

Generally they are, but to my knowledge the specialist balls (i.e. Moon Ball; Net Ball) are stronger than Ultra Balls when capturing the sort of Pokemon they're created for. ;D

Dusk Ball.

It helps so much. That's usually why I take on Legendaries at night time.

Quick Balls and Premier Balls.


I try and stay away from Great and Ultra Balls, and I never use my Master Ball.

June 21st, 2008, 11:46 AM
I like the Master Ball, but it takes the fun out of hard-to-catch Pokémon, so my favourite two are the Poké Ball and the Timer Ball. I think the Timer Ball is pretty nice looking, and the Poké Ball, well, i like something original :D.

The Premier Ball would have to be my favorite.

2nd favorite? The Cherish Ball is pretty cool.

I guess I have a thing for almost solid-colored PokeBalls.

Master Balls. *insert innuendo here*

Sirsly, Poke balls looked awesome when the trainers in the anime clicked the middle button and they grew. Do they still do that anymore?

The Animation change is the Addition of Seals which add to the pokeball's animation.

I need to add another one on here: The Dusk Ball. A wondeful new addition (and like Silver said its saves you on soooo many legendaries, thats how I caught Dialga). Also: the Cherish Ball. I wish I could get one in game for Regigigas (the last addition to my pokedex)...

June 22nd, 2008, 08:36 AM

It really doesn't seem fair that you can only "cheat" to get a Cherrish Ball, and the only time you get "legit" ones is for Event Pokemon like Darkrai.

June 22nd, 2008, 01:29 PM

My favorite Poke Balls would probably be the classic Poke ball, Quick Ball or Premier Balls. I like the like inverted color scheme on the Premier ball, the nostalgic feel of the Poke ball and the cool design of the quick ball.

Once I got to the point in D/P where I could buy mass quantities of Dusk Balls, that was all I used, whether it be morning or night. The only other ball I liked using was the Ultra ball, and that was when my Dusk balls ran out and I was too lazy to go to town.

Gary, the Magic Fairy
June 23rd, 2008, 01:19 PM
My favorite, by far, was the Love ball. If I recall correctly, is was... 8x as strong as a pokeball on pokemon of the opposite gender. I remember every day in Crystal I would go to the Pink Apricorn Tree and have it turned into one.

Moon balls were cool too. XD

I want my Apricorn balls back. ;__;

Poké Ball - It's the foundation of the capsule system used today.
Master Ball - 100% capture rate? Yes please. Although like what others have stated it does defeat the purpose of the catch.
Timer Ball - Keep that battle persisting, and get yourself an awesome catch! Love it.
Dusk Ball - Love the design, and it's purpose is rather cool.

1) G.S. ball
2) dark ball (pokemon 3 or 2 movie)
3) master ball
4) primer ball (animation on coli makes it look sweet)
