    How to Get a Master Ball in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet?

    To get the Master Ball in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet, you must:

        • Beat all eight Gym Leaders and the Elite Four.
        • Defeat all five Titans.
        • Defeat all five Team Star camps.
        • Complete all the main quests and see the post-game credits.

    What to Use the Master Ball on in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet?

    You can use this Master Ball on anything you'd like, but here are some recommendations:

    1). Save it for a future DLC patch that may contain a roaming Pokemon or something rare with a low catch rate.
    2). Shinies that have Teleport (like the Ralts family).
    3). Shinies that have moves that make them faint instantly (Voltorb with Self-Destruct, Tatsugiri with Memento, etc.)
    4). Use it on the second Koraidon/Miraidon (based on which game you play) that you meet in Area Zero.

    The Master Ball increases the chances of catching Shiny Pokémon compared to a normal Pokeball, which is unsuited for the stronger Pokémon since they can escape those easily. It is better to save your master ball for Pokémon that are hard to capture. Here are the Pokemon players should think about using the Master Ball on:

        • Koraidon/Miraidon
        • Chi-Yu
        • Ting-Lu
        • Chien-Pao
        • Wo-Chien
