Pokemon BDSP Pokeballs

Jump To:

Pokemon BDSP features fifteen different kinds of Pokeballs. One of them happens to be the generic Pokeball that has been carried over from other Pokemon titles.

Pokemon BDSP Pokeball Types

Pokeballs are pretty basic, and using them is all about skills. It won’t provide you with any additional powers for catching the Pokemon.

Below are all the remaining Pokeballs types that Pokemon BDSP has to offer, along with the price and locations from where you can get them:

Master Ball

Price: N/A

Location: You will find this Poke Ball at Galactic HQ and Jubilife TV Station.

Beginning with the best all-rounder Poke Ball, Master Ball is the most powerful Poke Ball that you can find in any Pokemon game, let alone Pokemon BDSP. If there’s a Pokemon that you don’t want to miss out on, better throw a Master Ball to secure your catch.

Dive Ball

Price: N/A

Location: You will find this Poke ball at Solaceon Town.

The second Poke Ball on our list is the Dive Ball. Dive Ball works well with the Pokemon that resides underwater.

Dusk Ball

Price: 1000 Poke Dollars

Location: This Poke Ball can be found at Oreburgh City, Solaceon Town Pokemart.

The powers of this Poke Ball are unleashed after the sun goes down. If you’re catching a Pokemon at night or in any dark area, Dusk Ball is your go-to.

Great Ball

Price: 600 Poke Dollars

Location: You can find this Poke Ball using the Dowsing Machine Poketch App or at other locations like Route 210, Eterna Forest, and Pokémon Mansion Great Marsh.

The powers of this Poke Ball lie somewhere between a generic Poke Ball and a Master Ball. The chances of catching a Pokemon with Great Ball are higher than that of Poke Ball and less than that of Master Ball.

Heal Ball

Price: 1000 Poke Dollars

Location: This Poke Ball can be found at Oreburgh City, Solaceon Town Pokemart.

Heal Ball will not only catch a Pokemon, but it will also replenish its HP and remove any status conditions.

Luxury Ball

Price: 1000 Poke Dollars

Location: This Poke Ball can be found at Solaceon Town Pokemart.

Catching a wild Pokemon doesn’t necessarily mean it will grow fond of you. It can take some time for a wild Pokemon to feel at home with you. However, with this Ball, you can improve your relations with the wild Pokemon pretty quickly.

Nest Ball

Price: 1000 Poke Dollars

Location: This Poke Ball can be found at Solaceon Town Pokemart.

If you’re catching a low-level Pokemon, then this Poke Ball would suffice. You need not waste any other powerful Poke Ball of yours.

Net Ball

Price: 1000 Poke Dollars

Location: This Poke Ball can be found at Solaceon Town Pokemart.

Net Ball improves your chances of catching water or bug-type Pokemon. Now that you come across a wild Squirtle, you’ll know which Poke Ball to throw!

Premier Ball

Price: N/A

Location: N/A

This is a generic Poke Ball and doesn’t have any additional powers. It just looks cool and is more expensive. You have to purchase 10 Poke Balls to get 1 Premier Ball.

Quick Ball

Price: 1000 Poke Dollars

Location: This Poke Ball can be found at Solaceon Town Pokemart.

Quick Ball is helpful if you’re not willing to spend more time in a wild encounter. You can throw it at the beginning of the battle, and the chances are quite high that it’ll successfully catch the Pokemon.

Repeat Ball

Price: 1000 Poke Dollars

Location: This Poke Ball can be found at Solaceon Town Pokemart.

If you come across a wild Pokemon that you’ve caught before, throw a Repeat Ball and save your other expensive Poke Balls.

Safari Ball

Price: N/A

Location: This Poke Ball is located at the Great Marsh in Sinnoh.

This is also one of the special Poke Balls, and it’s used in the Safari Zones.

Timer Ball

Price: 1000 Poke Dollars

Location: This Poke Ball can be found at Solaceon Town Pokemart.

This Poke Ball is best used during the later stages of the battle. The more turns you take, the more powerful you will get.

Ultra Ball

Price: 1200 Poke Dollars

Location: After getting 5 badges, you can get this Ball from Pokemart Route 210, Route 225, Iron Island, Acuity Lakefront, and Stark Mountain.
