If you’ve gotten your hands on a Master Ball in Pokémon GO, you can be rest assured that it won’t go to waste.

The Master Ball is one of the most sought after items in all of Pokémon. Whether you're playing the main series or Pokémon GO, the Master Ball is a priceless Poké Ball that guarantees a catch. That's right, even in Pokémon GO where you have to throw the various capurue devices yourself, the Master Ball will not miss.

You won't have to worry about a Pokémon breaking out of the Master Ball. In Pokémon GO, it works just like it does in your favorite games from the franchise. You get the Master Ball and pull it out when you encounter a creature you just can't let go. And boom, it's yours.

How does the Master Ball work?

The Master Ball is the simplest Poké Ball in all of Pokémon GO. With most Poke Balls, you have to give it a spin and toss it at the Pokémon you've encountered. Then you'll watch a short animation of the ball to see if it's been caught or will break out.

In the video above, you can see the difference between that and the Master Ball's mechanics. You simply throw the Master Ball at whoever you encounter, that you want to use it on. A cutscene plays that leads the Master Ball to the creature and then you've got a 100% success rate for it to stay in the ball.

So save it up for that special Pokémon you've been after. Whether it's a shiny variant of your favorite, a Legendary that's eluded you for years, or a basic 'mon that you just want to show off in your Master Ball, make sure you put it to good use.
