Poké Ball

(Redirected from Master Ball)

A Poké Ball is a device used by Pokémon Trainers to capture Pokémon. Poké Balls contain Pokémon. No one really knows how they work, or how they are made, because that is one of Pokémon's biggest mysteries. The price varies by the type of Poké Ball. They're many different kinds of Poké Balls. In RBY, there were only a mere handful of different ones, in GSC there were several more, made with Acorns. In the Third Gen Games, there are just different types, buy-able and findable.
