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 caught, the Pokémon's HP, PP, and status are fully restored; since Pokémon sent to the Pokémon Storage System are fully healed, this is only applicable if the caught Pokémon is placed in the party.

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 Heal Ball.


Games Description
