To paraphrase Mr. Offer: "You're gonna love my balls."
With good reason. In 3rd Generation, the only ways to get Luxury Balls are by winning a Master Rank Contest and by showing Selphy a Pokémon she wants to see. Very ridiculous.I'd have to go with the luxury ball actually. It's meant to help with happiness and all but I usually have only one or two with me. If it fails, then sucks to be me. -_-' I think it depends on which game I play though as think it mainly frustrated me in Emerald the most...lol.

Heal Ball. Its not even that interesting of a design (visual), and I always have a full party so it doesn't serve a good purpose. To make matters worse, at the begining of the game when they actually might be useful, there aren't any to be found.
It's not that the balls are not necessarily a bad idea. I just don't see much point in them if they have the same effect as a standard Poke Ball. But maybe that's just me. But then again, that's the point of this thread.Why so much hate for Premier and Luxury Balls?
Well, I'm currently replaying Blue (surprisingly) again and I've noticed the odds of capturing Pokemon are "all-or-nothing". When I attempt to capture a fairly hard-to-get Pokemon such as Tauros, the only possible messages I'll get are "The Pokemon broke free" or "Tauros was caught". Really it's impossible to get "very close" Easy to catch Pokemon like Pidgey are either "Shoot! It was too close!" or "Pidgey was caught". It's always the "usual" message or a success (The only possible exceptions being Legendary Pokemon at full health vs. weakened; I'll check it out when I get there). Likewise, Chansey is literaly a "hit or miss" every time. Strange, but true.Besides, I don't know why people consider the catch rate a crucial feature when it comes to talk about your favorite ball; the capture of a Pokémon stopped being a hard task a long time ago.
Because no one but you care for the animation?
Or you can just re-win a contest you have already won, but it's far too much job/boring if you want say 20 Lux Balls.
