Ultra balls at this point. Worst thing is he probably doesn't know how special that is. Gunna be catchin' weedles and shiz with them. I know the first time I played for some reason it didn't strike me how special the Master Ball was and I caught a Seel with it or something.

I imagine they'd come in a pretty case when bought in larger amounts... Not just rolling about in the bottom of your bag.

See y'all soon.

a GIRL thing? That case is pretty creative. Although, for my experience, it never felt like one ball was better than an other. Granted, using the Timer Ball right once the battle started has only worked once for me (out of the hundreds of times I played). The only one that really made a difference in my opinion was the Masters Ball but I never caught the wrong Pokemon with it...probably because I read the description...

@H0lyhandgrenade: That would make sense. If you buy 10 you will get a Premier Ball which is simply a white but otherwise normal Pokeball.

Speaking as someone with barely more Pokemon knowledge than Atty, I did not know that there were Pokeballs other than the regular ones and the Master balls. This comic is super educational.

@Zelkova: The Premier Ball is only given if you buy ten of the standard Pokeball though, which has always been a little disappointing.

Love the packaging as well. Now is that a five or ten ball set? I'm imagining, like much packaging, it's only a five ball set with lots of extra plastic to make it look bigger and like you're getting more for the deal. >.>

When I first played pokemon, I assumed the master ball was for me to catch Abra. (because it always teleported away!) Imagine my shock when I realized they were available at the casino! I started over and used it on MewTwo ('cause that made sense) only to find out there are roaming legendaries in Firered. :I

Hmm. Speaking of ultra balls: They have an H on top of them, and they're called hyper-balls in Japanese. English translation fail.

But I must say that this at least explain how we can carry 99 of every single pokeball and not have them all shatter if you move an inch in the wrong direction.

Huh? @The_mad_one: But he hasn't done anything for her, besides giving a little information.

On the wasted Master Ball front, way back when me and my brother shared a copy of Yellow, he thought it would be a good idea to use the Master Ball on a Seaking. I pretty much just laughed at his stupidity and told him what the Master Ball did. He didn't reset, though.

I hate Mewtwo, and everything about him...
I caught that fucker in a Pokeball... It took tons and him being stunned, sleep and all other status effects and on a sliver of health before it happened, but screw him, he aint good enough for the Masterball... I CAUGHT A MOTHERFUCKING RATTATA WITH THAT THING!!!

Ultra Balls! Now he can catch snorlax ;D

On the topic of Master Balls, I used my first one on Mewtwo in Blue, second one on Raikou in Gold and nowadays I simply try not to use them. Catching the roaming legendaries with Wobbuffet and paralysis and false swipe is part of the challenge for me.

Well I did catch latios in Black 2 over and over again with a master ball to get a good nature...

Damn you, TheJWittz! Thanks to your pokenerd quality knowledge of pokemon, now even *I* know the value of an Ultra Ball! Personally, for me, it always seemed to me I had more luck with Great Balls and Quick Balls than any other kind of ball, bar the Master Ball of course. Poke and Ultra balls just never seemed to work. But know I know the catch modifiers. Dammit, as much as I love numbers, I hate it when they don't lie!!

I like the packaging for the Ultra Balls. Never even though of Poké Balls coming packaged like that, but now that I see this, I'm starting to wonder why it's never occurred to me.

And I was actually relatively smart with my first Master Ball- used it on Zapdos. My plan was I'd use Zapdos's Electric moves to wear down and paralyze the other legendaries, make them easier to catch. It actually worked, too.

And then there's my brother, who, despite my clear instructions, wasted MY Master Ball on a level 6 Wooper. Which, by the way, bore no resemblance whatsoever to the level 40 Entei I had told him to use it on (I had him playing my game while I was putting up posters in my room).

@jjfresh: Are you sure you don't mean a Quick Ball? Timer Balls work better the LATER in the battle it is. Other than that, random number generators mean that sometimes a plain old Pokeball will work with one shot where four Ultra Balls have failed.

Otherwise, if you can get them in the specific game that you're playing, I HIGHLY recommend Dusk Balls. They've got a 3.5x better chance of catching things than a Pokeball (compared to an Ultra Ball's 2x multiplier and a Great Ball's 1.5x multiplier)

Ingenious design I love how you designed the Ultra Ball package! It's actually the way it would likely be in real life too! Even with you seeing some of the 10 balls inside and everything! I love it! I'm just loving this little thing too damn much! ufsdiogudisgiod

Master balls I've actually made it a point to NOT use my master ball on the legendary pokemon, just as a challenge for myself. I've only ever used it when I've been under leveled for the area and I needed a fast way out of a fight with a rare pokemon.

Best be clear in your recommendations, Spork. @Sporkitude: Dusk balls only give that 3.5x bonus when catching pokemon at night or in a cave. Not just in general. :P

@jjfresh: Of course using the Timer Ball at the beginning of the battle doesn't work. It's supposed to be used for long battles. The more turns the battle has, the better the chances of capture. The ball that's supposed to catch right at the start of a battle is the Quick Ball!

@sonics1030: actually I think the Quick ball was meant to be used on pokemon with high speed. Like Abra for example who always teleported away on the first turn.

But then we didn't have the Quick ball, back in my 1st gen days. *Continues to rant about hours spent south of Cerulean City trying to catch an Abra.*

I can't remember what I used my original Master Ball on, as I've been playing so many Pokemon games for so damn long... But recently, I caught both Mewtwo and Zygarde in Luxury Balls in Pokemon X. First Luxury Balls tossed too. They broke all the other kinds, even at 1hp, so frustrated, I tossed the Luxury Ball, and *ping* Caught. :P

I think my first Master Ball was used on Mewtwo, but my cousin is the one with the more interesting story. lol He was leveling up a Nincada for the Shedinja, but he wasn't thinking about needing a spare ball in his bag. At the time, all he had was a Master Ball, so his Shedinja stole it. ^^;

I actually caught Mewtwo in Yellow version with an Ultra Ball. It was incredibly tedious and time consuming, but it was well worth being able to say I caught a legendary without a Master Ball.

@jjfresh: Ultra Balls are definitely greater than a Pokeball. And as for using a Timer Ball as soon as a battle starts, you're doing it wrong. Timer Balls are only effective when at least 10 turns have passed. Use to be 20 turns before Generation5.

I've never actually used my master balls in any version. I've started trading them to my soulsilver and hoarding them. So worth the 50ish ultra balls that giratina broke before I finally caught it.
As for the bag and ball-cases, I assumed the player's bag was like a bag of holding. There's no way 121 ultra balls could fit in a normal bag, especially on top of all that other junk every trainer must have.
