We review all the types of Poké Balls in Pokémon Legends Arceus. The classics we already knew, the new ones and how to craft each of them.

Poké Ball List in Pokémon Legends Arceus: how to make all Poké Ball types

Pokémon Legends Arceus is already here and it comes with new features not only in terms of mechanics, but also in aspects that directly affect the management of the player's inventory and items. Crafting is one of the major contributions of this release, and now you have to make your items; from healing, evolutionary items to Poké Balls. It is the latter that we will talk about here: all the types of Poké Balls available and how to make them.

Poké Balls in Pokémon Legends Arceus: all the types and resources you need.

It should be noted that to be able to craft a certain type of Poké Ball, you need to increase your Rank in Team Galaxy. Thus, you will see that the further you advance in the adventure, the more types of Poké Ball you will have at your disposal.

But of course, if you don't want to spend your savings to buy Poké Balls (they appear in the Bazaar if you complete Choy's Requests), you will need to collect these items for each type of Poké Ball. You can then make them at the workbench in the camp.

There are types that we had never seen before in the franchise, such as a specialized type for flying species (they have a longer range), a novelty that brings freshness and we have been delighted by how dynamic it is to capture creatures in this game. Here is the list:

  • Poké Ball
  • Great Ball
  • Ultra Ball
  • Heavy Ball
  • Leaden Balls
  • Gigaton Ball
  • Feather Ball
  • Wing Balls
  • Jet Ball

What are the best Poké Balls?

Undoubtedly, within each of the three categories, the best are the Ultra Ball, the Gigaton Ball and the Jet Ball, respectively.

The capture ratio increases proportionally according to their rarity. However, for any creature that is airborne or is agile, we recommend the Jet, Feather and Wing types. On the other hand, if you manage to distract a wild specimen with food, opt for the heavy ones if you are close -they have a short range. Finally, for any standard circumstance, if they are low level creatures do not waste the Ultra Ball: limit their use depending on the level and the amount of life of the Pokémon. In combat, it helps a lot to change their status; either sleepy or paralyzed, burned, poisoned and frozen.
