|A Poké Ball is a special Item that is necessary to catch and store Pokémon.|
This item makes use of the odd power all Pokémon possess to shrink themselves down, transforming them in real pocket monsters.
The strength of a Poké Ball is determined by how much it raises a wild Pokémon's catch rate, and may in fact vary depending on the conditions of the battle.
Some Poké Balls will also have a particle effect when thrown (i.e. A Premier Ball will have a red particles trail).
Poké Balls can also be used outside battle. Right-click a Ball while holding it in your hand to throw it!
They can't miss when used in battle, but can miss if used outside battle. They have a chance to break if thrown against blocks!
Some Pokémon, like Eternatus, Bosses, Totems and Ultra Beasts are handled differently by Poké Balls, for more infos refer to their pages.
Most Poké Balls can be bought from Main type Shopkeepers, with the only exception of Cherish Ball, GS Ball, Beast Ball, Dream Ball, Master Ball and Park Ball.
