Pokeballs are essential for catching desirable Pokemon in the Pokeverse. A Master Ball, essentially, is a type of Pokeball that has the ability to capture any Pokemon without fail. The Master Ball is a rare item that has been around since the first generation of Pokemon games. The catch, however, is that there is only one Master Ball in the entire game. Therefore, trainers will want to be extremely judicious in their use of the ball. 

Here is everything you need to know about getting the Master Ball in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet. 

Obtaining the Master Ball in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet

The Master Ball is the master of all. It can capture any Pokemon, without fail, regardless of its weakness or strength at the moment. That makes it a highly desirable item in the game. 

Players must complete the entire storyline in order to obtain the powerful Master Ball. and this entails defeating every Titan Pokemon, eight gym leaders, as well as the Elite Four and shutting down every Team Star base scattered across the region of Paldea. After this, players will have to complete ‘The Way Home’, where they will encounter the Scarlet and Violet Paradox Pokemon. 

Upon completing all these shenanigans, players will find themselves in their Academy dorm, where they will have to talk to the Director named Clavell. The Master Ball will be gifted by him to the players as a reward for defeating the ‘final boss’. 

Using the Master Ball on Pokemon

As stated previously, it is important for players to use their Master Ball with caution. So, which is the right Pokemon to use it on? It is a given that a rare item like the Master Ball is worth spending on a rare and hard-to-catch Pokemon. In Pokemon Scarlet & Violet, there are five Legendary Pokemon, and players can use it on one of them as they are hard to come by. They are as follows:

  • Koraidon/Miraidon

  • Chi-Yu
