Okay, let's do something creative! If you were to add one new type of Poké Ball to the games, what would it be? What would its effect be, what would it be called, what would it look like, etc.

Name:
Appearance:
Effect:

Here are a few I came up with.
Name: Status Ball
Appearance: Black and white, with a spiral pattern that makes the viewer feel dizzy
Effect: Increased effectiveness on Pokémon with a status condition.

Name: Inverse Ball
Appearance: Dull red-brown with no design
Effect: Increased effectiveness on Pokémon who has a type advantage against the player's Pokémon

          Name: Power Ball
          Appearance: The top is a dull blue color, with a brown fist painted on it. Of course, the bottom is white.
          Effect: Has a normal catch rate, but the Pokemon caught will have an extra point in its 'attack' stat! This effect would stack with IVs, EVs, and so on.

          I think it'd be cool if all balls did something like this... The Quick Ball could increase the speed stat, the Heavy Ball could increase the defense stat, and so on.

            Name: Feather Weight Ball
            Appearance: The bottom of the ball is pink and the top half of the ball is a cream color with a puffy looking cloud design on the front.
            Effect: This pokeball has the exact opposite effect of the "Heavy Ball", it works significantly better on pokemon that are light in weight.

            Appearance: The ball is completely green in appearance and has a pattern of leaves surrounding the top half of it.
            Effect: This ball operates on the same catch rate mechanics of the "Dive Ball", however instead of needing to be within a water environment, it operates in a grass covered environment.

            Name: Desert Ball
            Appearance: The ball is completely tan in appearance and has a pattern of yellow grains of sand surrounding the top half of it.

            Effect: This ball operates on the same catch rate mechanics of the "Dive Ball", however instead of needing to be within a water environment, it operates in a snow covered environment.

            Name: Scorch Ball
            Appearance: The ball is completely red in appearance and has a pattern of orange flames surrounding the top half of it.
            Effect: This ball operates on the same catch rate mechanics of the "Dive Ball", however instead of needing to be within a water environment, it operates in a fire and/or volcanic covered environment.

            Name: Cloud Ball
            Appearance: The ball is completely light blue in appearance and has a pattern of silver clouds surrounding the top half of it.
            Effect: This ball operates on the same catch rate mechanics of the "Dive Ball", however instead of needing to be within a water environment, it operates in the sky battle environment.

            Name: Share Ball
            Appearance: The ball is completely black but has a yellow equal (=) sign on the top, bottom, and front of the ball.
            Effect: This ball has an increased catch rate against pokemon that are the same type as the pokemon you are using against it.

              I looked and no one said it


              Name: Horde Ball (Or maybe Precision Ball)
              Appearance: Yellow and white stripes
              Effect: Can be used at any point during a Horde Encounter, it has high precision so you can aim correctly. But it doesn't have a 100% catch rate.




              Maybe you can only get it after you become champion or maybe there's only one or two available. Though if it was rare then maybe it should have a 100% catch rate.

              Name: Shiny Ball!
              Appearance: It's very glittery but not in a god-awful atrocious way.
              Effect: When Pokemon are caught in this Pokeball, it increases the chance that they'll be shiny! Isn't that neat?

                Name: (Color)Gift Ball
                Appearance: Looks like a regular Pokéball but has a white ribbon around it. (For white gift ball)
                Effect: The Pokémon caught cannot be used by the trainer who caught it. It can be sent to a trainer as a gift in Mystery gift. Once sent, the ribbon is untied and becomes an accessory on the Pokémon sent (much like dressing it up only with a ribbon)(or even just a regular ribbon on the Pokémon Ribbon Section)
                (Rebellious Pokémon but has stronger Return moves once fully befriended)

                Name: Wonder Ball
                Appearance: Star design on top of the button (much like master ball but the M replaced with the star) With a Blue-and-Yellow striped combination on top with a white still on the bottom.
                Effect: Almost like the GTS, the Pokémon caught with this ball is placed inside the Wonder Box until a Wonder Trade is made. (Again unusable by the trainer who caught it)

                It just seemed weird we can receive Pokémon from other in game NPCs but we can't do it ourselves. :)

                Effect: Has very high catch rate, but puts the caught Pokémon to sleep and lowers its happiness.

                Name: Luxury Ball (Personalized )
                Appearance: Like a luxury ball (the best looking imo), but you can choose the color! Like you can buy a regular one, a blue one, pink one, yellow, light green, etc. Or maybe a Pokeball that adapt the color of the pokemon that's inside? (the ditto pokeball or the keckelon pokeball?)
                Effect: Nohing particular as it is a luxury ball.



                .. I know I am a simple girl.

                  Effect: An event ball. This nefarious pokeball enables the user to catch another trainer's Pokemon in-game!

                      Appearance: Gold and silver gradient.
                      Effect: Similar to a Repeat Ball, but power increases exponentially the more of this Pokémon you've caught. (rather than just increasing once like the Repeat Ball). Makes it significantly easy to collect a large number of the same Pokémon since after the first few you basically have a 100% catch rate.
