{{main|Poké Ball (Jungle 64)}}
The '''Poké Ball''' was introduced as an {{TCG|Trainer card}} in the [[Pokémon Trading Card Game]] during the English Original Series (the Japanese Original Era). First released in the {{TCG|Jungle}} expansion, it was reprinted in the Japanese {{TCG|Hanada City Gym}} and {{TCG|Kuchiba City Gym}} Theme Decks. It was later reprinted in the {{TCG|EX Ruby & Sapphire}} expansion, with new artwork by [[K. Hoshiba]] and an updated effect. This print was used until the release of {{TCG|EX Unseen Forces}}, which featured new artwork by [[Shin-ichi Yoshikawa]]. This print was used throughout the rest EX Series, and the first part of ''Pokémon the Series: Diamond and& Pearl'' Series, up until the release of {{TCG|Majestic Dawn}} expansion. This print featured new artwork by [[Ryo Ueda]].
It was later reclassified in Japan as an {{TCG|Item card}} during the HeartGold & SoulSilver Series, though the English prints did not adopt this naming convention until the release of the {{TCG|Black & White}} expansion. The {{TCG|HeartGold & SoulSilver}} print featured new artwork by [[Hideaki Hakozaki]], and the Japanese {{TCG|Battle Starter Decks}} featured yet another new illustration by [[Noriko Hotta]]. This card was released again in the {{TCG|Black & White}} expansion with new artwork by [[Yuri Umemura]]. This print was later released in the {{TCG|Boundaries Crossed}} expansion. This card was reprinted again during ''Pokémon the XY Series: XY'' in the English {{TCG|Kalos Starter Set}} with new artwork by [[5ban Graphics]]. This print was later reprinted in the English {{TCG|XY Trainer Kit}}, and in the {{TCG|Generations}} expansion.
Poké Ball was reprinted again during ''Pokémon the Series: Sun & Moon'' Series as part of the {{TCG|Sun & Moon}} expansion with new artwork by [[Ryo Ueda]]. As of this print, when the player plays it, they flip a coin. If the coin shows heads, they may search their deck for a Pokémon, reveal it, and put it into their hand, shuffling their deck afterwards. It also appeared in the Sword & Shield Series in the {{TCG|Rebel Clash}} expansion with new artwork by [[Studio Bora Inc.]].
