In Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, you will be glad to know that the Master Ball does exist. This legendary ball is the greatest of all. With it, you can catch any Pokemon you encounter, and they won’t break free. Unfortunately, only one exists and it takes a lot of work to claim it. Read on as we tell you how to get the Master Ball in Pokemon BDSP.
The Master Ball has been in Pokemon since Generation 1. In the game, it was invented by Silph Co, makers of fine Pokemon equipment. It is never available to buy or find but is always acquired through tasks and quests. This still stands in Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl
Where to Find the Master Ball in Pokemon BDSP
The Master Ball will only be available to you when you are almost at the end of Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. As the ultimate Pokeball, this makes sense. Many rare Pokemon are only accessible after you have completed the game, so it is useful to have the Master Ball for these encounters.
When you travel to the seventh gym leader, you will have an encounter with Team Galactic. This will be on Lake Acuity. You then have to trail them all the way back to Veilstone City where their base of operations resides. Travel to the middle of the HQ then defeat their leader.
For this, he will gift you the Master Ball. This means you will have it for the battle against the final gym leader in Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. You can either go off and catch a rare Pokemon with it or wait until you finish the game to unlock the rare ones.
Remember, any Pokemon that has a Master Ball thrown at it will get caught. Wondering what Pokemon you can get post-game? Check out all our guides in the Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl section.
