Who to Use Master Ball on in Pokémon Scarlet (What Pokémon Do You Use a Master Ball on in Pokémon Scarlet?)

You can use the Master Ball on any Pokémon you desire since it can catch any Pokémon. However, since you can only use the ball once, you would be smart to restrict its use to catching a legendary Pokémon.

The Pokémon world’s capacity to teach me new things about myself fascinates me🤩. Among my favorite attributes I have discovered about myself is that I am a collector.

Is there a Master Ball in Pokémon Scarlet?

Yes, there is a Master Ball in Pokémon Scarlet. It is available in all Pokémon games since its introduction in Generation I. The Master Ball is among the most valuable👌 Poké balls you could have in your inventory.

Its value derives from its ability to catch any Pokémon without fail💪: basic and legendary Pokémon.

Also, it does not matter how high the target Pokémon’s level is or how weak it is.

That is why the name “master” is used to identify the ball😎. All you have to do is throw this ball at whatever Pokémon you wish, and you will capture it fruitfully.

However, you can only use it once.

There is only one way to get the Master Ball in Pokémon Scarlet: beat the entire Pokémon game and then go to the university to locate Director Clavell.

By then, you will have defeated every Gym Leader, Team Star Base, and Titan. The order in which the player chooses to defeat these characters is at their discretion.

Ultimately, that indicates your defeat of the main story’s “final boss.” Once you have spoken with the director, he will gift🎁 the Master Ball to you.

Unfortunately, you cannot get more than one Master Ball in Pokémon Scarlet😔. That means any efforts to find and collect master balls in the wild or while roaming around the Pokémon world would be fruitless😪.

Similarly, you cannot purchase it from any shop. However, you can acquire more than one of the other Poké ball types.

Notably, some players have found clever ways to beat the system😏. One such method involves unlocking the Printer item in the League Club Room and then upgrading the printer twice.

After the upgrade, a Poké Ball lotto could occur.

You will need to partake in this lottery activity several times to try your luck in securing a Master Ball. Nonetheless, you are sure to get a Poké ball🤷.

The decision on the best Pokémon on which to use the master ball is subjective. Depending on their objective, a player can use this ball on any Pokémon they wish.

However, from a strategic perspective, it would be advisable to use the Master Ball on legendary Pokémon.

The main reason for this is that legendary Pokémon are usually harder to catch😰 than their basic wild counterparts.

As mentioned earlier, the master ball is meant for a single use. Hence, given its 100% catch rate, the smartest😎use for the Master Ball is to use it on a legendary, as this has a notoriously low catch rate.
