The Beast Ball (Japanese: ウルトラボール Ultra Ball) is a type of Poké Ball introduced in Generation VII. It can be used to catch a wild Pokémon, being more likely to succeed against Ultra Beasts and less likely against other Pokémon.

In the core series games

In Pokémon Sun and Moon, Beast Balls were developed by Faba of the Aether Foundation, building on the work of a predecessor. In Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, they were created through cooperation between the Aether Foundation and the Ultra Recon Squad.

Effect

Manual activation

When used from the Bag in a wild encounter, it attempts to catch the wild Pokémon. If the wild Pokémon is an Ultra Beast, it has a 5× catch rate modifier; otherwise, it has a 0.1× modifier.

Beast Balls cannot be used in situations in which Poké Balls cannot be used, such as in wild battles with two or more opponents currently present or against a trial Pokémon. If used in a Trainer battle, the opposing Trainer will bat the ball away, wasting the item.

Held item

Fling fails if the user is holding a Beast Ball.

A Beast Ball in the anime

Beast Balls debuted in A Mission of Ultra Urgency!, where the Aether Foundation provided many of them for Ash and his classmates to use during their Ultra Guardians missions. In the same episode, Ash used one of them to temporarily catch a Buzzwole.

In Love at First Twirl!, Ash used almost every Beast Ball provided to the group to try and catch a Poipole in order to take care of it until the location of its Ultra Wormhole could be discovered. He eventually succeeded with the last one in the box.

In Rise and Shine, Starship!, Ash and Kiawe tried to use Beast Balls to catch a Celesteela, but they both failed due to it being rooted down to the ground at the time.

In Twirling with a Bang!, Lana and Lillie used a pair of Beast Balls to temporarily catch a Xurkitree and a Blacephalon, respectively.

In The Long Vault Home!, Ash, Lana, Kiawe, and Mallow each tried to catch a Stakataka with multiple Beast Balls, but it effortlessly dodged them all. Eventually, Ash was able to successfully catch Stakataka after getting rid of the statue that had been placed on top of its body and convincing it that they were going to return it to its home.

In Beauty is Only Crystal Deep!, Ash used a Beast Ball to temporarily catch a Pheromosa so that it could be returned home.

In Living on the Cutting Edge!, Lana tried to use a Beast Ball to catch a Kartana, but it simply sliced the Ball to pieces.
