The Smoke Ball (Japanese: けむりだま Smoke Ball) is a type of held item introduced in Generation II.
If held by the player's active Pokémon, allows definite escape from a wild Pokémon. It does not ignore trapping moves.
Smoke Ball now ignores trapping moves. In Generation III only, the Smoke Ball plays a special animation when used.
Because all battles in Pokémon Colosseum and most battles in Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness are Trainer battles, Smoke Orb has no effect and cannot be found.
