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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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).

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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
