Fans of the Pokémon franchise would know all the different kinds of Pokeball to use while catching Pokémon, and while Pokeballs are effective in catching small or weak Pokémon, you would need something stronger to catch rare Pokémon. That’s where the Master Ball comes in and is far superior to the regular Pokeball. But during your gameplay, you would have noticed that you cannot purchase it from shops or find any way to unlock it. In this guide, we will see how to get the Master Ball in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
Pokémon Scarlet and Violet – How to Get the Master Ball
While you can get the Master Ball in the middle of the game in the earlier versions, it works a bit differently in Gen IX. Here we will see how to get the Master Ball in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
To unlock the Master Ball in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, you need to complete the entire game and play post-game. That means you need to complete all three storylines, all missions, and quests to get the Master Ball. While it does seem counterintuitive since you would already have a strong team by then and don’t need a Master Ball anymore if you still wish to continue your journey you can make use of it. After completing the last story mission called The Way Home, you will receive a call from Director Clavell asking you to meet him at his office. After a brief dialog, you will get the Master Ball as a reward, thus ending your main story journey right then.
You can still make use of the Master Ball in post-gameplay. If you have yet to catch Legendary or Shiny Pokémon, you can make use of the Master Ball. The Master Ball has a 100% success rate in catching all Pokémon types, so this is one way to use it post-game.
