Pokemon Scarlet & Violet – All Poke Ball Catch Rates

Get equipped to catch em all!

Each Poke Ball hits differently, depending on the environment, species, and level of the Pokemon you’re trying to capture. Knowing when and where to use different Poke Balls is a critical skill for understanding core Pokemon gameplay. Other Balls have different purposes, so when it comes to catching a Shiny Pokemon or Legendary, catch rates can be an important factor to consider. In this article, we’ll go over all the Poke Balls you can find in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet and their catch rates.

Different Poke Balls are optimized for specific situations. If you want to catch something in the water, bringing along as many Dive and Net Balls as you can can help with that. If you know you’re going to catch the Legendary Pokemon soon, bringing along a Quick Ball and more than a few Ultra Balls can only help you. Love Balls catch the opposite gender of Pokemon, while Nest Balls capture Pokemon if they’re a low level. Luxury Balls ensure that your Pokemon will warm up to you more effectively, while Heal Balls make a Pokemon ready for battle as soon as it’s caught.
