Effect

Manual activation

When used from the Bag in a wild encounter, it attempts to catch the wild Pokémon with a catch rate modifier of 1×.

If used on an Ultra Beast, the catch rate modifier is instead always set to 0.1×.

The Luxury Ball 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 (except if used as a Snag Ball on a Shadow Pokémon), the opposing Trainer will deflect the ball, wasting the item. If used on the ghost Marowak, it will dodge the ball, wasting it.

As a Pokémon's Poké Ball

A Pokémon in a Luxury Ball gains twice as much friendship as other Pokémon.

Held item

Fling fails if the user is holding a Luxury Ball.

A Luxury Ball in the anime

In Jirachi: Wish Maker, Brendan's Aggron was shown to be contained in a Luxury Ball.

A Luxury Ball appeared in Which One ~ Is It?, a Japanese ending theme from the Diamond & Pearl series.

In A Frenzied Factory Fiasco!, multiple Luxury Balls were seen at the Poké Ball Factory. While being chased by Meowth around the facility, Pikachu smacked a Luxury Ball at Meowth, causing him to briefly get sucked into it and giving Pikachu a chance to gain some distance to him.

In First Catch in Alola, Ketchum-Style!, a Luxury Ball appeared in James's possession, being part of his Poké Ball collection. When Jessie's attempts to catch a Mimikyu with regular Poké Balls failed, she grabbed the Luxury Ball James had been polishing and used it instead, catching Mimikyu, much to James's dismay.

In A Young Royal Flame Ignites!, Viren was revealed to keep his Pangoro in a Luxury Ball.

In the manga

A Luxury Ball in Pokémon Adventures

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

A Luxury Ball first appeared in A Sketchy Smattering of Smeargle while Emerald was thinking which of his Poké Balls he should use to catch Jirachi. In Skirting Around Surskit II, he used a Luxury Ball on Jirachi, but even though Jirachi was sucked into it, Guile Hideout used his Surskit's Psybeam to prevent the Poké Ball from closing and then destroy it.

In Innocent Scientist, Blake used Luxury Balls while trying to catch the Genesect controlled by Colress, eventually succeeding.

In the TCG

Luxury Ball
Main article: Luxury Ball (Stormfront 86)

The Luxury Ball, first found in the Stormfront expansion, is among the rarest of the Poké Ball varieties in the games, though its catch rate is the same as that of a normal Poké Ball. Likewise it is so with the TCG, allowing a non-LV.X Pokémon to be searched from the deck, but only if another Luxury Ball card is not in the discard pile.
