I haven't used it yet, I'd be likely to if I encounter an escapable/self-destruct/Legendary Shiny though.

On my first run-through I used it on Zekrom. I figured a legendary should be kept in a legendary bal. On my current play through I haven't and won't use it. Gotta use them pokeballs!

I used it on Kyurem when I ran out of ultra balls. Kyurem would probably be the only Pokemon I'd use it on anyway.

I haven't used the Master Ball since Pokemon Diamond i think...i prefer the challenge of catching the pokemon with ultra balls and such. Only exception are roamers, i hate to chase them around the whole map, so i use the master ball on them

Nope, still have mines. I caught all of the legendaries using great/ultra/dusk balls. Saving it for a shiny that I may never encounter. (-__-)

Was forced to use it on Volcarona cause I ran out of other pokeballs and I didn't save before battling it.

In Black 2 I used it on Kyurem, but then I got Zekrom without one and then Colress gave me another.
I think they give you master balls equal to the amount of main legendaries of that game (in black/white 2 there are 2 main legendaries, so 2 master balls)
In join avenue, if you have a raffle you have a chance of getting a master ball (to get one invite someone who says they want to make everyone excited)

I used my Master Ball on Zekrom. He was such a pain to capture and I only had like 5 Ultra balls, 1 Pokeball & 2 Great Balls. I didn't wanna keep on resetting every time I didn't catch it when all 8 of them were gone. So I just used the Master Ball on it.

I used my Master Ball on Reshiram in black, but then I transferred a master ball from B2 into Black (via a trade) and caught Kyurem in Black

On the original Black, I'll be honest, I just used it on Reshiram because I didn't feel like weakening it and putting it to sleep and such :/. On White 2 I used it on Latias in the dreamyard, because that was my last legendary to catch.

I save it for shiny encounters, or I will give it to a pokemon to make it's trade value go up on the GTS because people will want the ball.

I haven't used my master ball on white. I managed to get Zekrom the first time after 2 ultra balls. Had to catch him a second time because I thought I could SR after beating N and it would be ok.. Guess not XD but even then, Zekrom only took 3 ultra balls then x]

I have 3 sitting in my bag thanks to the Raffle Shop and I haven't thrown a single one out yet. Like most people, I'm keeping it for a shiny legend or a shiny pokemon that can get itself away from battle.

I didn't use my Master Ball in BW1, because there was no real need to and there were not really any legendaries in BW where there was needed to use a Master Ball IMO. Going back to Heart Gold or Sapphire there were pesky roaming Pokemon I used a Master Ball on cause they could flee and annoyed me.

I used it on Zekrom because I was impatient about finishing the game. It would be better if they had the mascot encounters well after the E4

I had caught all the legendaries in White2 and ran into a dragonite while trying to fill my pokedex. I got excited (it's one of my favorites) and just decided to chuck one of my masterballs at it.

I still have one, I was going to save it for the Shiny Haxorous... but I caught that with a single quick ball at the start of battle.

Don't know what to do with it now!

I did used my Master Ball. I mean that's what it's made for. I used it on Kyurem in both games, B/W1 and B/W2.

I generally only use it for roamers, at least I used to. I prefer to catch things in balls that match their color scheme (Premiere Ball for Reshiram, Luxury Ball for Zekrom, etc.) even if it takes longer to catch them that way.

I have held onto it for the time being. Haven't had to use it yet to catch anything as I've managed the hard way, so to speak.

To be honest, I had no idea the masterball had to be used on the legendary until Pokemon HS. In platinum, I carelessly used it on a Tentacruel. My brother banned me from using the master ball from that day onwards.
