The Master Ball is a power item that appears primarily in the Pokémon franchise.
Generally given to you only once per game, it's the best Poké-Ball in the game and can catch any Pokémon without fail. In some games, there are ways to win more Master Balls, but they're generally very hard (i.e. get a perfect match in the Pokémon Lottery).
Master Balls also appear in the Super Smash Bros. games, starting with Smash 4. The Master Ball functions similarly to the regular Poké-Ball item, but always summons a Legendary or Mythical Pokémon. Or Goldeen.
- Master Balls appear in Super Smash Stadium, unchanged from canon. They debuted on Poké-Floats. Evidently, Master Balls in this continuity can also summon Ultra Beasts, as Silvally is able to come out of one. To see which Pokémon can come out of a Master Ball, go to Super Smash Stadium/Poké-Ball Pokémon and look for the Pokémon with a purple background.
- Master Balls appear in Tropes vs. Women in Pokémon Training, also unchanged from canon. They are slightly easier to obtain:
- Every Berry tree has a 1% chance of generating a Rainbow Apricorn, which the local Poké-Ball maker, Akiko, can turn into a Master Ball.
- On the Battle Turnpike, you can buy a Master Ball for 256 Battle Points.
