    Appearance-wise I really like the Luxury Ball and the Premier Ball. As for usefulness, I'd say the Repeat Ball. It just comes in real handy when there's a swarm of Skitty in Emerald, if you know what I mean ;D.

    Luxury Ball for style, Dusk Balls and Master Balls for usefulness and utility. Though I think the purple on the Master Ball is quite stylish as well.

      If I have the luxury to do so, I prefer to capture things in balls that match their body color.

      After that, Great Balls and Premier Balls are nice.

        Where it stands right now, my favorite kind of Pokeballs are Net Balls, Dusk Balls, and Quick Balls. Why? I've caught Kyogre with a Net Ball, I've caught quite a few Legendaries with Dusk Balls, such as Uxie, Azelf, and Mesprit, and I've caught Thundurus with a Quick Ball, full health and everything. I couldn't believe it XD

          Geez... this is almost exactly what I was gonna say!

          On a side note, I've always found Heal Balls completely useless, just go heal your pokemon at a Center. Oh, and Premier Balls are my favorite when it comes to design, there's just something sexy about them.

          I think Dream Balls and Cherish Balls look lovely! Premier Balls look very sleek and stylish, too.

          On effect however, I would say Master Ball, but due to their limited availability I'd have to say I enjoy the strength of the Dusk Ball, but I'm actually not too keen on its appearance.

          So it's Dream Balls for me, since the Cherish Ball "opening" effect can sometimes be a bit much.

          My favourite type of Pokeball is the Pokeball. I prefer to keep my captures plain and simple and I refuse to catch Pokemon with anything but a Pokeball. I've managed to catch Virizion, Cobalion and Terrakion along with Zekrom in Pokeballs.

            I'm not sure why, but I really like the Premier Ball. When I first got it in Saphire, I didn't know how I had gotten it so I thought I was special xD

            I honestly like the pokeball the best! I like its simple design.

            Besides that, I love the dusk ball. So stylish~

                Based off design I like the Cherish Ball and Premier Ball the most, closely followed by the Luxury Ball.

                Besides, no-one in the anime or anything uses poke balls other than the originals
                That by the way is not true.

                My most favourite and most effective ball would Definitely be the Dusk Ball. I mostly play at night and therefore mostly catch pokemon at night, so this is The ball for me. :D This is very closely followed by the Quick Ball, as my team is quite high-levelled and a single hit would instantly KO any wild pokemon lols. Just a quick Quick Ball and I don't have to worry about battling and fainting it. (Y)

                Dive Ball, all because of TwilightBlade and her obsession with them. Whenever I caught a Pokémon she'd always tell me to do it in a Dive Ball so I learnt to love them haha, fun times! I also love Heavy Balls because they're awesome at catching a lot of stuff and Net Balls have a cool animation ♥

                I like the classic pokeball. It's simple, nice, and I like consistency in terms of what my team is caught in, so pokeballs tend to be the way to go. Other than a pokeball, I like premier balls since they're just cool looking :D

                Dive Ball is my favorite because of something that happened. I was fighting a Registeel and at the start of the battle I threw my first ball : a dive ball even though it had full HP and it got caught :D I got extremely lucky and it wasn't a critical capture either.

                  Just a normal Pokeball for me. My OCD won't allow anything else. While most people make no using items and use only normal Pokeballs optional challenges I automatically do that with every game. I wouldn't even dare use a TM on a game before B/W.

                  I do like the Premier Ball design and even if I shall never use them I can't really complain about free balls right?
                  Just for fun I am running a massive favorite Pokemon poll. Unlike most common polls this will list the most favorite to the least favorite at the bottom of the page. I won't be mad if you only vote for a few of them though I would love it if you vote for all of them. PM me if you voted for all of them, I would like to keep a list of people who actively vote so I can PM them for the next round.

                  -Sadly not by my choice you are forced to have a Facebook or make an account on the site to vote. I recommend making an account, the site is quite useful for tournaments of any kind and you don't even need to verified the account at all. My existing account been unverified for over a year now out of laziness.
                  -You may vote as little or as much as you like though once you hit the button then it is set in stone for any votes that you did made. For example you can do half of the 1st gen one day and the other half the next. You just can't change your mind later for anything you already voted for. If the button no longer there then you voted for everything possible for that round.
                  -I will only update this when I feel I have a decent amount of votes to give a decent result.
                  -You may vote for that Pokemon for any given reason. Just go for your personal favorite.
                  -If you need a reference of their designs then you can use this or your favorite site with images.

                  Ultra Balls, Dusk Balls, Quick Balls, and Timer Balls because they're all extremely useful! Ultra Balls have a better catch rate for any Pokémon. Dusk Balls have helped me catch a bunch of legendaries in caves, along with any Pokémon I encounter at night. Quick Balls make for good use when I run into a Pokémon I really want but am too high leveled to weaken it. Timer Balls have helped me for when a battle has gone on for too long and don't want to waste the rest of my Ultra/Dusk Balls. (:

                  For design, I like all of them and Luxury Balls, as well; Timer Balls might have to be my favorite, because when you send out a Pokémon or they break free, a little timer appears for a second and it looks really cool! :D

                      I do have some favorites from G/S/C, like the Love Ball or the Moon Ball, those are nice.

                      I guess by design I like the Heal Ball and Luxury Ball, I like it when I get to use those. <3

                      Quick Balls are my favorite to use in terms of catching something such as a legendary.

                        Luxury and the dusk ball are my favorites. Because Black and Green are my favorite colors.

                              The Luxury Ball is by far my favorite. I remember not wanting to use them when I played Sapphire because, they were difficult to obtain. I used to only want to catch my "perfect team" in Luxury Balls. I also like the way it raises the friendship with a Pokemon.

                              I am obsessed with Dive Balls... They are beautifully colored and animated. Who doesn't like bubbles? Although I used Dive Balls since its inception, my obsession sparked in the 4th gen era. It exploded in the 5th gen era since it's so easy to RNG capture Pokemon. :3

                              I also like Luxury (nice black and gold color) and Heal Balls (lovely blue star animation) as well.
