The Cherish Ball [[List of unobtainable items|cannot be legitimately obtained]] as an item, so cannot normally be used. If it were to be obtained, when used from the [[Bag]] in a {{pkmn2|wild}} encounter, it would attempt to catch the wild Pokémon with a [[catch rate]] modifier of 1×.

From [[Generation VI]] onward, [[Pokémon breeding|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 {{i|Poké Ball}} for inheritance purposes.
