    I also like the Premier Ball for being literally a re-colored Pokeball. The general difficulty in acquiring it means you want to conserve it for whatever you deem to be a special occasion -- not unlike the Master Ball.

    My favorite are the regular Pokéball, the Fast Ball and the Cherish Ball. I like how the Pokéball looks, it's simple. The Fast Ball looks cool, and I like the lightning design on it. I like the Cherish Ball because it is rare and when a Pokémon is sent out of it, the animation is colorful and pretty.

    In terms of function, my favourites are the Quick and Timer Balls. Quick is helpful since it will literally never fail on a large number of Pokemon provided you use it turn 1, and Timer is great for catching things like Legendaries, since the catch rate goes higher than any other ball bar a Quick on turn 1, or a Beast Ball on a UB.
    In terms of just general aesthetics, the Beast Ball's kinda cool, with its not-quite-circular design, and on a Pokemon like Porygon the effect becomes pretty cool. I think my favourite though is probably the Level Ball. Something about the red/black/orange design just clicks for me. Kinda sucks you can't get more than 1 in SM though.
    If we're going least favourite too, I'd probably say the Fast Ball. The sprite looks kinda cool with the orange shade, but when the game renders it it just looks like a crappy painted Pokeball, and the red on yellow clashes too much for me.

    In terms of design it’s Beast Ball BY FAR. I wish we could change its colour though. A red Beast Ball would be the best thing ever imo.

    Premier Ball is a close second, and was my favourite before Beast Ball came along.

    In terms of animation, my favourites are Premier Ball, Dusk Ball, Quick Ball, and Net Ball. In terms of usefulness, I find Dusk Ball, Quick Ball and (for legendaries) Timer Ball to be the most helpful, too bad the latter has such an unappealing animation.
