Four words… Pokémon GO Master Ball. Are you ready? After 7 years, the game is finally being updated with the best ball in the franchise!

Check out the promo image leading up to the reveal of the Master Ball!

Niantic announced this news over on the official Pokémon GO Twitter. As part of the reveal, they say the Pokémon GO Master Ball will be able to catch anything without fail.

This includes any Pokémon found in the wild, through Lure Modules, and even after Raid Battles. The Master Ball will be available to all Trainers and free to get!

The Master Ball will be a reward as part of a (free) Seasonal Special Research: Let’s GO. The final part of this story will begin on May 22, 2023, at 10AM local time.

Trainers who complete this will get a Master Ball as one of the rewards. Right now, the developers have said this is the only time you’ll be able to receive it (so it’s a one-and-done), but there’ll be future opportunities to acquire more!

You can read all about the Pokémon GO Master Ball special quest and how it works here. This news has come to light after the announcement of the community, tool, and app, The Silph Road shutting down.

We recommend giving that situation a read, as it’ll have a huge impact on Pokémon GO’s future and community. In the meantime, this update looks fun, and it shows Niantic are willing to add more new items & content to the game!
