It is the perfect opportunity for trainers to jump back into the world of Pokemon GO; log back into the game to catch your favorite Pokemons without the possibility of failing. Yes, in other words, Pokemon GO is reportedly getting among the greatest treasures crafted out of the Pokemon universe, a Master Ball. The scarce ball is able to encapture any Pokemon without fail. The devs confirmed the prospect in a new blog post on the official site.

Whether it’s a small Duduo or among the rarest Shadow Mewtwo, nothing can escape the power of the Master Ball. The rare Pokeball item would let Pokemon GO users catch any confused Pokemon without much trouble in any of the locations of their choice, including raid locations, gyms, and more. It will soon be added to the global gaming sensation in the future update, as detailed by Niantic on the website. 

Trainers, in the course of your travels, you may have heard of the very best Poké Ball with the ultimate level of performance—the Master Ball. When used, it will catch any Pokémon you encounter in Pokémon GO without fail, whether it be in the wild, through Lure Modules, after Raid Battles, or while using your Daily Adventure Incense.”

The engaging AR experience will get the Master Ball item as part of the “Seasonal Special Research” during the upcoming Season 10: Rising Heroes. The Pokemon GO trainers can utilize Poke Balls, Great Balls, Ultra Balls, Premier Balls, and Beast Balls for now. But, the Pokeball can be used on any Pokemon present in the game, and any user who finishes the research will get the Master Ball as a reward.

It will become available after nearly a week on May 22, 2023, in a new stage of Seasonal Special Research. Moreover, the Special Research will be viable until the end of Season 10: Rising Heroes, which will end on June 1, 2023. It is not a pay-to-win element, thankfully, which some users initially expected to be the case.

The official Pokemon GO account on Instagram had initially poked at the prospect in a teaser that hinted at the debut of the Master Ball item. Additionally, recent datamine attempts had also disclosed the rumors, kickstarting the fables in the fan ecosystem that soon spiraled out of control. Nonetheless, the new update will quench the thirst of both veteran and newer players alike, as Pokemon GO remains highly popular due to constant updates.

Pokemon GO is an augmented reality mobile venture that pushes players into a whole new world full of Pokemons, integrated right into reality. It was initially brewed and published by Niantic in a partnership with Nintendo and The Pokémon Company for iOS and Android phones. The title has proven to be an astounding success all these years, but the journey has not been a smooth one, to say the least.
