I figured that the pokeballs are contorted by a network. Remember during the deoxys movie where they couldn't use their pokeballs, they said that the "The pokeball management system" was down.

I image that the network is some kind of radio signal just like the one our cell phones use.

I also presume that there is a central database that has a master list of all of the caught pokemon. How the pokemon is marked, I'm not sure. But each time a pokemon is about to be captured it is checked to see if it already belongs to a pokeball. That's why when a pokeball is thrown at a pokemon that has already been captured, the pokemon starts to go in the ball, but then is rejected.
I really need a new signature.
