Re: Poke balls vs great balls vs ultra balls

I like Poké Balls the most. Sure, they aren't as potent as the other two, but I feel like I accomplished more if I catch a Pokemon in one, as apposed to a stronger ball.

Ultra Balls. Who cares if your Mewtwo is in a Pokeball? Mine is in a Masterball and just as good, with much less effort on my part.

Re: Poke balls vs great balls vs ultra balls

Whatever I feel like using at the time. Throughout the game, I tend to use whatever I have the most of first, while once I can afford plenty of Ultra Balls I use those to capture whatever I want. Those that find their way onto permanent teams get captured in whatever ball I think matches their design the best. Overall, I still think the Great Ball looks best, though.

Re: Poke balls vs great balls vs ultra balls

Well, I voted Poke Balls, but I usually use Ultra Balls - it's just that I try and use up all of an 'inferior' ball before starting to use a higher grade.

Re: Poke balls vs great balls vs ultra balls

Even though I captured many of my legendaries and most of my shinies with Ultra Balls, I voted Great Ball because I like it's design, and with it, I caught my first legendary, Raikou.

I mostly use Ultra Ball but I like the simplicity of the pokeball.

Re: Poke balls vs great balls vs ultra balls

It really comes down to how much patience I have at the moment of capturing a certain Pokémon. Personally, I like to use Poké Balls.

Poke ball. It's very easy to catch Dialga/Palkia with a pokeball. (The only legendaries that are easy to catch)

Re: Pokeballs vs greatballs vs ultraballs

My favorite is the Great Ball, because it has a sleek design, as well as an interesting multiplication effect.

Re: Pokeballs vs greatballs vs ultraballs

I always buy Pokeballs in quantities of 10; then, I sell back the pokeballs. I may start a thing where I only use Premier Balls for capture. That'd be expensive though, and it'd only be for show. (It'd essentially 1000 for each ball.)

Ultra Balls, for the higher catch rate. Poké Balls can't hold a candle to them in terms of reliability.

Don't forget Reshiram and Zekrom, who are even easier to catch (yes, that's possible).

I voted for the Pokéball, because I don't like the design of the others, especially the Ultra Ball.

Re: Pokeballs vs greatballs vs ultraballs

Since capturing Kyurem with a Pokéball on the 1st throw (non-critical capture), I have a new found respect for the humble Pokéball!

None of them appeal to me all that much, but Ultra Ball looks slightly better, so I'll vote for it.
