will this ball be more effective than an Ultra Ball if tring to catch one of the Pychic Legendary Pokémon? --Bentendo 19:02, 10 May 2007 (UTC)

Ultra Ball's effectiveness is 2x catch rate. Dusk Ball's effectiveness is 4x if used at night or in a cave. Therefore, Uxie and Azelf will catch the full advantage of the ball all the time. Mesprit, however, roams, so it can be caught outside during the day, leading to a 1x catch rate if used then. If you wait until nighttime, though, to go after it, it'll be 4x. Same for Cresselia, which is also both Psychic and legendary.
Heck, the Timer Ball is just as effective as a Dusk Ball used at night is after 30 turns. Use them together, and you're pretty much set. --TTEchidna 20:16, 10 May 2007 (UTC)
