Effect

Manual activation

When used from the Bag in a wild encounter, it attempts to catch the wild Pokémon. If used on a Pokémon that is already registered as owned in the player's Pokédex, it has an increased catch rate modifier.

The Repeat 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 it, wasting the ball. If used on the ghost Marowak, it will dodge it, wasting the ball.

Generation III to VI

If used on a Pokémon that is already registered as owned in the player's Pokédex, the Repeat Ball has a 3× catch rate modifier; otherwise, it has a 1× modifier.

Generation VII

If used on a Pokémon that is already registered as owned in the player's Pokédex, the Repeat Ball has a 3.5× catch rate modifier; otherwise, it has a 1× modifier. If used on an Ultra Beast, the catch rate modifier is instead always set to 0.1×.

Held item

Fling fails if the user is holding a Repeat Ball.
