    Default The right Pokčball for the right Pokčmon

    Pokčballs are, without a doubt, the most important aspect of the franchise considering that they allow us to capture our favourite Pokčmon, and now that Gen VI made it possible for us to put them in the right ball thanks to the new breeding machanics (passing down the Pokčball with which the mother was captured), I was wondering which kinds of Pokeballs could be fitting for all Pokčmon in existence.

    For example, I think that a Dive Ball would be perfect for a Water Pokčmon, as a Dusk one would be for a Dark or a Ghost one.

    What about you? In what kinds of Pokčballs do you think that Water, Dark, Ice, Fire, Grass, Fairy, Dragon, Ground, Rock, Steel, Ghost, Fight, Normal, Electric, Bug, Psychic, Poison and Flying Pokčmon should be?

    I don't use the balls on a specific type, but I tend to use the one closest to the pokemon's color scheme; Dusk for Zygarde, for example.

    I don't really make a whole list of types to go on which Pokeballs. I actually just use Premier Balls for favorite Pokemon and Legendaries. I really love Premier Balls *^* Otherwise any other Pokemon is gonna be stuck with whatever Ball I have in hand. Except the Master Ball, I really don't know what to do with it.

    Yeah, I've never bothered matching Pokeballs. Normally I'll end with team of five Ultra Balls and one Pokeball (that being my Starter). I just throw what I've got.

    Join Ash and Pikachu as they travel to the Tenno Region, a region known for its advanced space program. Along their way towards the Tenno League and becoming a Pokémon Master they'll encounter new Pokémon, new enemies, such as the evil Team Planetary, and, of course, a certain trio of Team Rocket members, along with friends new and old.

    I also don't have certain Pokeballs that my Pokemon go into.
    It's just whatever I ended up using at the time. Most of the time it will be a quick ball.

    Also, to be the first to answer this question:

    Water - Dive/Lure/Net
    Ice - No clue.
    Fire - No clue
    Grass - No clue
    Fairy - Moon ball
    Dragon - Ultra ball (that way I'm not immediately resorting to the Master Ball for such a strong type)
    Ground - No clue
    Rock - Great ball
    Steel - Heavy ball
    Ghost - No clue
    Fight - Great/Ultra ball
    Normal - Standard pokeball

    It looks like I'm the only Pokčball maniac here. XD
    Anyway, thank you very much for all of your answers.
    Actually, I too usually end up using whatever Pokčball I've got on my hands, but when I accidentally bred a Politoed whose mother happened to be in a Dive Ball, I soon realized how cool it this to have a flawless Pokčmon, with the right nature and in the right Pokčball.
    And thanks Painkiller for giving me your opinion about which Pokčmon should be in all of the Pokčballs' variants; it was really helpful.

    You're very welcome!

    I would only consider having my Pokemon in certain balls if there was a mechanic that let you switch out what Pokemon are in which Pokeball.

    Master Ball for the highest level or final legendary of the game. I tend to use it on level 75 Kyurem of BW or level 80 Deoxys of Omega Ruby.

    I like to try and have my Pokemon in PokeBalls that match their colours (e.g. my Zapdos in an Ultra Ball, Azelf and Greninja in a Dive Ball, etc). In XY I only wanted Pokemon in standard PokeBalls because I didn't like them being in anything else, until I got myself a Sneasel in a Moon Ball. In OR I always want my Pokemon in different PokeBalls whenever possible.

    I just wish there were more options to pick from or at least the ability to change the PokeBall your Pokemon are in without the use of a cheating device. One day hoping for my Friend Ball HA Sceptile and Lure Ball HA Feraligatr.

    I often would use Poke Balls or Great Balls for like lower level Pokemon, and Ultra Balls for higher level Pokemon. I also use Dusk Ball for Pokemon from darker areas depending on how hard it is to catch. And Timer Balls for catching legendary Pokemon and ones with lower catch rate, if the Ultra or Dusk Balls keeps on not working. I would also use like a Net Ball on a bug or water Pokemon depending on how hard it is to catch.

    When Im in early parts of the game where I can still catch pokemon w Premier balls I usually reserve mine for special pokemon or ones I feel I will use regularly. For example I always have a flying pokemon in my team so I would use my premier ball for that, or a more specific example if im playing Platinum I would use mine on Shinx since i love the Shinx evolution line.

    It depends. If I'm catching for the sake of owning the Pokemon, I usually use a Quick Ball. With Pokemon I really care about, I often try to find the happy medium between color scheme and effectiveness of the ball.

    Otherwise, I usually catch my team early on, so they end up in Pokeballs regardless. I'll occasionally have one member of the party in a Great Ball, Repeat Ball, or Net Ball, but otherwise I try to keep it primarily Pokeballs.

    I'm trying to break that habit, though. It comes entirely from the anime and is sort of lame to do imo.
