Lavender Town - Pokeballs: Discussion on additional pokeballs, better use of pokeballs, the story and theory of typical pokeballs

Just a showcase of all the pokeballs being discovered until now.

In Pokemon GO, only 4 of them (normal pokeball, Great Ball, Ultra Ball and Premier Ball) are released. I’d like to see all of them implemented into Pokemon GO. (Likely to happen as Premier Balls is introduced and Master balls are data-mined in Pokemon GO)

It will also be great for you to share some of the stories, theories and thoughts on pokeballs.

I don’t think they’ll release any new types of poke balls any time soon.

Players like PoGo because of the simplicity of catching and battling and the complexity of whichever playstyle you would like to play. There is no laid down road on what you are supposed to the first. At level 5 you can start collecting Pokecoins ffs. Or you can just farm the stardust and candy. It is both simple cough gym battles suck cough and complex. You aren’t supposed to make the game more difficult to comprehend. Brilliant isn’t it? Though I don’t think you would get what I am saying…


Huh? Why do you think I don’t get what you mean? Are you here just to counter my point?

Take a look at my topic and what @Thorend has replied to me in ‘new teams adding into Pokemon GO’.

How come you claim yourself are 'brilliant '? I don’t think new comers (1 year after the release of Pokemon go) could stand a position in pokemon.

As a long term plan to Niantic, I would think what @ElectroBlade said is right. (Niantic may give us surprise in 2018)


Try to be friendly in the Forum please


So just discuss about pokeballs on this topic


Thx for your support @Elderscroller.

They should give everyone at least 1 master ball for mewtwo in the exclusive raids. That would be less annoying than 50 premier balls.

You took my post the wrong way haha. But maybe it’s because of my wording, sorry. What I am trying to pertain as brilliant is the simple and complex system of Go. I said brilliant isn’t it right after my explanation on why the game is both simple and complex…

That’s fine. The designs of various Pokeballs are pretty good though.

Here are my ideas:

Friend Ball: Gives you double candy for catching the Pokémon, but is only as powerful as a regular poke ball.

Nest Ball: as powerful as an ultra Ball for anything in the lowest rarity egg tiers + commons like pidgeys(great for grinding)

Timer Ball: becomes more powerful every time the Pokémon breaks out of a ball.

Cherish Ball: Given out at special raids at events like Pikachu Outbreak and Mewtwo.

Dusk Ball: as powerful as an ultra ball at night. Gives you +2 candies for catching any ghost or dark types.

Net ball: as powerful as an ultra ball when catching water/bug types. Gives you +2 candies for catching these types.
