When you catch a Pokémon, it will forever remain in the Poké Ball it was first caught in. When it breeds, its offspring will also be kept in the same kind of Poké Ball. If you are concerned with aesthetics, having every Pokémon in a standard Poké Ball, Great Ball, or Ultra Ball is nothing short of criminal. Here are some rare and stylish Poké Balls in Pokémon Sword and Shield and how to get them.
Vendors will give you a Premier Ball every time you buy 10 standard Poké Balls, Great Balls, or Ultra Balls.
The Dream Ball is given to Pokémon trainers by the Ball Guy in the Entrance of Wyndon Stadium.
Completing Rotom Rallies in the Wild Area rewards players with Fast Balls. You can earn up to 10 this way.
Players can obtain a Friend Ball by talking to the Ball Guy in Pokémon Sword and Shield‘s Turrfield Stadium. These Poké Balls can also be given as a tournament reward.
You can get the Heavy Ball by talking to the Ball Guy in the Gym at Stow-On-Side. It can also be a tournament reward.
You can get the Level Ball from the Ball Guy in Hammerlocke Stadium. It can also be a tournament reward.
You can get the Love Ball from the Ball Guy in Pokémon Sword and Shield‘s Ballonlea Stadium. It can also be a tournament reward.
You can get the Lure Ball from the Ball Guy in Hulbury Stadium. It can also be a tournament reward.
You can get the Moon Ball from the Ball Guy in Circhester Stadium. It can also be a tournament reward.
The remaining types of rare Poké Balls include the following:
- Repeat Ball
- Quick Ball
- Luxury Ball
- Nest Ball
- Net Ball
- Dusk Ball
- Timer Ball
- Heal Ball
- Dive Ball
Vendors sell each of these randomly in the Wild Area for Watts. Some vendors in select Pokémon Centers will also sell them for Poké Dollars. Otherwise, beating the tournament will often reward players with three of a specific type of these Poké Balls.
Keep in mind that each of these Poké Balls works better on different Pokémon. Remember to check what they do before using one, especially for balls like the Dream Ball where there is a finite amount. Happy hunting, trainers!
