The Cherish Ball (Japanese: プレシャスボール Precious Ball) is a type of Poké Ball introduced in Generation IV. Event Pokémon are often contained in a Cherish Ball.

In the core series games

From Generation IV onward, event Pokémon are usually distributed inside a Cherish Ball, unless they are distributed as Eggs. This is the only way to obtain a Pokémon in a Cherish Ball.

Manual activation

The Cherish Ball cannot be obtained, so cannot normally be used. If it were to be obtained, when used from the Bag in a wild encounter, it would attempt to catch the wild Pokémon with a catch rate modifier of 1×.

As a Pokémon's Poké Ball

From Generation VI onward, bred Pokémon inherit their Poké Ball from their parents. However, the Cherish Ball and Master Ball cannot be passed down via breeding; instead, they act as a regular Poké Ball for inheritance purposes.
