What pokeball do you use to catch Legendaries?
Tell me what you use ill put most common used pokeballs at top. But base this answer off your most used. If you use multiples then pick multiple answers. I found dusk ball to be best against the caved ones. i weaken to yellow almost red and dusk ball caught victini first try and cobalion in 3 tries.

i seem to have luck using just regular pokeballs

So far the only Legendary I have reached is Victini and I caught that after only 5 Great Balls and 6 or so Pokéballs. It wasn't even a critical capture.

Zvezda March 7th, 2011 12:33 PM

I caught Victini after about 10 Pokeballs.

I have this strange problem where I simply must catch pokemon in regular pokeballs. In fact, when I receive a different type of pokemon from a character in-game, or find one on the ground, I promptly sell it to the pokemart. I also do this with premier balls when I receive them (100$ refund lol). The only other pokeball I'd ever use is the Master Ball, but I never find it necessary to use such a special ball.

you all must be luckiest people in world how do you freakin catch pokemon like zekrom and stuff with a pokeball?

Opposite Day March 7th, 2011 1:16 PM

Well, I've found that throwing it at it is a good start. The Poké Ball, that is.

ShinyMeowth March 7th, 2011 1:16 PM

I haven't reached any legendaries yet, but I always catch legendaries with Ultraballs and only Ultraballs, and I am not planning on changing that.

LethalTexture March 7th, 2011 1:28 PM

The regular Pokéball is the only ball I ever use. Might as well add an element of challenge into catching things.

Lord_Sesshoumaru March 7th, 2011 1:31 PM

it depends on my taste. but I caught my Victini with a Great Ball bcuz I have no other balls left. :P

Emperordrizzle March 7th, 2011 4:54 PM

Ultra because I have all ready captured the (Musketeer Trio, The three sub-Legendary Pokemon (Cobalion,Terrakion and Virizion)) with a catch rate of 3 ultra balls and not crying )(LOL) about wasting money on the game. Maybe the Legendary pokemon are easy to catch but I don't know because I only got up to the elite four(In 19:00 hours) and just need to finish them to try and catch Zekrom or Reshiram( I got both games so long work for me).

TheShinyMew March 7th, 2011 6:04 PM

I can capture Victini with a Great Ball. Isn't that exciting?

Nateon March 7th, 2011 6:36 PM

Since they were brought in, i will always use a dusk ball if it's at night or in a cave and a net ball if they're a water type, otherwise i'll just try the usual ones on hand like an ultra ball, or a master ball if it's the best idea for it

The Nightmare March 7th, 2011 6:55 PM

I always use ultra balls and master ball on legendary pokemon (depends on what type it is).

Pokemon Trainer Touko March 8th, 2011 3:06 AM

I caught Cobalion, Virizion, Thundurus, Zekrom and Kyurem with Quick balls.

Blue March 8th, 2011 3:10 AM

I tend to do a few attempts with Ultra Balls Say 10/20 and if it seems impossible doing that, with it's health at the lowest and a status problem i.e Par/Sleep/Frz ect. I just go with a Masterball, but I'd always use Ultraballs first.

D0N3GAN March 8th, 2011 3:59 AM

I use a regular old red and white Pokeball to try catch Legendaries in any Pokemon Game. I don't really have any luck with it, but it's more of a challenge on my part :D

Kevin March 8th, 2011 5:24 AM

Ultra Balls are what I use for catching legendaries.

lynds March 8th, 2011 5:32 AM

I dont know I try with any. I caught Victini with a Timer Ball though :)

Ursaring89 March 8th, 2011 6:52 AM

I caught Victini in a net ball so I'll probably use net balls for the rest of them now hahahaha don't act like you're not impressed.

Rensider March 8th, 2011 8:38 AM

I always use regular Pokéballs nowadays. In fact, i can't remember the last time i caught a Pokémon in any other type of Pokéball.

Cyb3r0t4ku March 8th, 2011 9:19 AM

Usually Ultra balls - spend my spare cash on them with memories of catching Rayquaza in Ruby... The battle took about 300 hours and five million balls. The safety of Ultra balls is comforting. I tend not to use a master ball for Legendaries just incase I come across an even more legendary Legendary.

What ball did you catch Reshiram/Zekrom in?
As the title suggests what ball did you catch Reshiram/Zekrom in and how hard was it to catch in your opinion.

Personally I caught my Zekrom in a Luxury Ball. I caught it on my first go to! But after I looked it up this is probably because Reshiram/Zekrom have a catch rate of 45 (the same as Beedrill or Onix).

These two are kinda similar - except this one covers everything, so I merged them!

Anyways, I used a Great Ball on Victini and I plan to do so on all other legendaries. :3

Eurydice March 14th, 2011 4:27 AM
