If you have for the gba you can use it on ruby and saf and get masterballs or if you have a action reply you can get masterballs from there

There is no other way to get a master ball unless you either 1. Use an action replay 2. Restart your game 3. Have a friend copy his/hers and give a copy to you

Yes, but it's really hard... Pity, because Dialga is actually really easy to catch with ultra balls!

(in my first game I ever played, sapphire, I didn't know anything about Pokemon, so I used the master ball to catch and absol... :D)

You can get another masterball by entering the Pokemon loto... Held by the reception woman at the tv station. All six numbers need to match your pokemon's id number. Every Pokemon you have caught in this game will have the same id number, though. You can make your chances higher by trading other Pokemon, and migrating other Pokemon to your game... They will keep the id of the original trainer. As many different id numbers as you can get improves your chances... But it's still hard! The top prize is a master ball.

Or, if you have ruby/sapphire/emerald/leafgreen/firered, you can let a Pokemon hold onto it when you migrate the Pokemon to diamond... (it will mean giving up the chance to use it in the original game) but that's another way... And what I did to catch giratina, and I can still catch cresellia and mesprit, too... Who both roam around sinnoh. I can always re play the games (ruby or whatever) and get another masterball that way.... But that takes dedication, and having no life Smile

I did the same thing as you. The only other way to get the Master Ball is to win the Jackpot in the loto (there's not much chance, though).

If you have a action replay you can tape in this code 94000130 fcff0000 b21c4d28 00000000 boooooo4 00000000 00000f4c 03e70001 d2000000 00000000 if you press L+R you will get 999 master balls

You can enter the lottery, or you can talk to the guy in solaceon town. He will tell you that he needs a certain Pokemon and if you catching it, he will reward you with any ball. Not much chance on either though...

Funny, I even knew to save the Master Ball for Lugia, not Ho-Oh, in Gold, and that was the first time I've ever played the game >_>

For future reference, you should save the Master Ball for Cresselia...

Anyways, there is indeed another way to obtain Master Ball. If you go in the Jubilife TV Station (obviously in Jubilife City), talk to the woman behind the counter. Play the Lotto Ticket Game, and if you pick a ticket that matches all five numbers of the ID of any of your Pokemon, you'll obtain a Master Ball. There's also prizes if you match four, three, or two numbers (in a row) of your ID. So obviously, the chances of matching all numbers (in order) is VERY rare, but you will have a higher chance of winning if you trade with other trainers, or migrate Pokemon with different IDs from other games.

I wish you good luck. You'll need it. ;__;

1) Use an AR Code to get unlimited
2) Win the lottery
3) Copy a pokemon holding a master ball and migrate it over
4) just send a pokemon over that is holding it from a GBA pokemon game
5) Hack
6) Glitch
7) Find secret one.

You can go to snow point city and inside one of the houses an old man will tell you that his grandson left something behind would you give him it for me he is located in twinleaf if you want to give it to him but I kept it and caught credsselia with it now level 100

You can also keep changing the date on you ds system. It will allow you to keep doing the lottery.

Guest answered:

You can start a different game and trade over the master ball, and a safer way to copy it is to sell it to a pokemart (save first) and then the pokemart will sell them, good luck!

You can try the lottery way, or you can use an action reply, or you can go to a Pokemon gaming event and every who participates will get 10 masterballs. That's how I go my masterballs!

If you have one Master Ball, trade it to another game. Then start a new game. It will take a while but keep trading master balls and keep starting new games. You will get so many master balls once you trade them back!

If you have HG or SS or Platinum or pearl or even a second copy of daimond or have a friend let you use their copy,get a ditto get your friends mastball / the one from the other game and put it on a Pokemon ( doesnt matter what game ) and a Pokemon with theif. Get into a double battle with if it's on Wi-Fi ( This works without another game if you can still battle in a double battle ) Now, lets say Your 2 Pokemon are the Pokemon with theif and the ditto. The opponent has the Pokemon with the masterball and a random pokemon. First get ditto to use transform on the Pokemon with the masterball, then get the Pokemon with theif to steal the masterball. The masterball will duplicate when ditto transforms so when you use theif to take the item from it because they are both on your team you get a free masterball and the other guy keeps his! It's perfect!

Another way to get one is by winning the First place prizefighter in the lottery. Or receiving one through a Pokemon in Pal Park.

Hope this helps.

Maybe if you catch two Ditto, let one hold the Master Ball you got, and then the hatched Pokemon with have a Master Ball clone.

Find a person who has cheats and get the person to trade you a Pokemon that is holding a master ball.
