Fifth Generation Are Pokémon slaves to humans? Team Plasma thinks so. Travel the Unova region and prove them wrong in Black & White, and then return two years later in Black 2 & White 2.

    I stopped using Masterballs in Gen 4 (Purely because they also looked more suspicious when you are trading!).

      I have used the Master ball, but only on legendaries that are fairly powerful, so that I could use them in the PWT or the Battle Subway. I caught Thundurus on White and then Heatran and Terrakion in White 2.

      I used my Master Ball in Black on Reshiram and then in Black 2 on Kyurem, just so that I could at least guarantee a capture from them, and I typically do use the Master Ball on the mascot Pokémon of each game as well.

        I never used my master balls in either game. I was way too paranoid that something would pop up. I've decided I'm just going to save them in case of a shiny or something.

            I catch ALL my pokemon with pokeball including legendaries... I reach the end of the game with all my masterballs untouched and I often trade them or just keep them as a souvenir...

              I decided to use one on Landorous, koffi~

              It's attacks were incredibly annoying and I managed to avoid nearly all of them due to Drifloon. Then it ran out of moves. And then used struggle. And then died. I tried putting it to sleep but it wakes up as soon as I throw another Pokeball and ultra balls didn't seem to work that day either. Landorous is such a piece of crap that I nicknamed it justly, koff~

                I have not used my Master ball, not once. I will horde it and see how many I can accumulate.

                  Yup, I used mine on Reshiram, which was a huge mistake. I should have used it on Virizion! Damn it, next time I make a file Virizion all the way. :D

                    I stopped using Master Balls after catching Lugia in Gale of Darkness. I can't remember what generation was newest at the time, but since then I've been using Luxury Balls for legends. I love the design!

                      I usually collect them as a way to count how many playthroughs of the games I do.

                      I did use one on my shiny Metagross though.

                      Worth it.

                          I refuse to use master balls. for most legendaries, ill use a pokemon with false swipe to bring them to 1 HP, put them to sleep, and use whatever other balls I have in my bag. for the runners, I use Gengar with Mean look.

                          I used the Master Ball on Zekrom on White. I'm undecided on what I want to use it for on White 2, probably on Virizion since I wanted to catch it in White but couldn't do so with an Ultra ball. lol

                            I used my first Master Ball to catch Reshiram just because I wanted to get through the game at that point. Now, I have a second Master Ball, and I'm waiting to use it on a shiny Virizion.

                              I havnt used my master ball since gen 3, maybe even 2. I always catch the legend in a pokeball then save the master ball for a wandering pokemon

                              I stopped using my Master Ball when I got Platinum, simply cause I liked the challenge of catching Pokemon.

                                I never used a master ball in all of my time with playing pokemon games i always found it to be a little too easy to catch pokemon and so the challenge was gone.

                                I do recall using a Master Ball on Kyurem when I played Black 2, I just didn't want the hassle of an extremely long battle. Other than that, I never used a Master Ball in my other 5th Gen games.

                                Hmm, I played pokemon black without using the master ball (yet),
                                in White 2 I used it to catch reshiram since I was out of other options (yes I know, "should've bought more balls before battle") and running away or killing it was not an option for me.

                                If I am ever getting X or Y I'm certainly going to try and catch all the legendaries without using the masterball though, it makes the game more challenging and, in my eyes, more fun.

                                I did the same, and I don't believe I've used the Master Ball otherwise or plan to. It's kind of a waste.

                                  I was originally saying to myself when I was battling a legendary, that I should save the master ball for another day. But now I see no need to save it, if it's not going to be used on anything else. Why not use what the game has given you?

                                  I often find at the end of the game, I have a ton of max revives and ethers that I was saving, that I didn't need in the Elite Four. Now I've stopped saving these things, and use them when I need them instead. I think I will probably use my master ball on Mewtwo for my Y game. Otherwise it will just rot in my bag.

                                    I first used a Master Ball on Mewtwo back in 1999. I only used it on Mewtwo on my Pokemon Y to be nostalgic. On HeartGold I used a Dusk Ball on Mewtwo so yeah.

                                      I used my first Master Ball in FR for catching the Snorlax near Cycling road I did so because I ran out of other types of balls, I used Ultra Balls for the rest of Pokémon

                                      And then I used it in Diamond only, in rest of the games I used Quick Balls, Timer Balls, Ultra Balls. Master Ball is not so special now just as the shinies, so I don't use it unless I run out of other balls.
