Scientific Description of a Pokeball

Assuming that each Pokeball scans the DNA of whoever "activates it" (AKA pushes the button to make it bigger), it could then use heat seeking/DNA scanning technology to make it return to the trainer. Gyros inside could function to control its horizontal motion and assuming it has a chamber inside that creates/releases Helium atoms as necessary, it makes perfect sense for it to be able to fly back into the trainer's hand. It can expand through similar use of Helium, being made of a rubbery elastic material, and the sensors inside scan each molecule of the Pokemon and then deconstruct its physical form, saving the DNA and memories of said Pokemon inside the Pokeball. Its brain is also transformed into digital data, using a complex use of computer storage to make a perfect "backup" of the brain's "hard drive". The red light is another heat/DNA scanner that makes sure it is, indeed, a Pokemon being caught, and the white light is used by the Pokeball to determine where physical barriers lie by expanding luminescent particles and scanning them with a light sensor- essentially, making sure there is space to reconstruct the Pokemon's physical form from the saved data, using the exact physical records as well as DNA and memories to perfectly remake each genetic quirk and personal oddity that said Pokemon possesses. When a Pokemon is first caught, its genetic code is imprinted with a slight watermark specific to it's trainer's DNA and its Pokeball- and when the red light, AKA heat/DNA scan attempts to deconstruct a Pokemon, it first checks for this small watermark- if it is a match, then the Pokemon is brought inside, if it is not, then it simply bounces off. This watermark is overridden during an official transaction using the DNA from two trainers at the same time, but the Pokemon may not react as they should to a new trainer at first- their old trainer's DNA is still registered within their memories and DNA, and even if it is subconscious, there is an immediant unease. When a Pokemon is released it is freed of the watermark, and is now fair game for any trainer.
Pokemon Center healing machines function by scanning the data inside the Pokeball and, one by one, fixing any imperfections and damage in each molecule- as well as completely and artificially refreshing the mental data of the Pokemon, lulling them into a false state of happiness.
A Pokemon's consciousness is not affected by the Pokeball's deconstruction- it's spirit and thoughts remain active, even when turned into digital data. The Pokeball is an emulator of sorts for the Pokemon's "ROM", if you will, and allows conscious functions to continue as normal. This dream-like "simulator", if you will, differs based on the Pokeball type- a "Pokeball" is, quite frankly, nothing to be seen but the metal inside, but a Luxury Ball, for example, presents a fantasy based on the stored mental favorites of the Pokemon.
A Pokemon's data is easier to be accessed when it is weakened- the molecules move less quickly, and are easier to scan, much like a Transporter in Star Trek (where you must have fairly direct coordinates to turn the being into digital data)... the less a Pokemon can resist, the better. A tame Pokemon is easier to catch because they do not resist- a Pokemon willing to be absorbed will be easier to copy than a Pokemon that is not. The closer to a state of mental, emotional and physical stillness a Pokemon achieves, the easier it is to transfer. A wild Ryhorn, for example, that is thrashing about, molecules twitching in fear and anger, and is mentally resisting the will to have its consciousness absorbed, will not be absorbed easily. If the Pokemon refuses to let its data become fully digitized (through mentally fighting the signals that allow its brain to transform or physically thrashing its molecules about during the process), the Pokeball quickly rearranges the data back into a physical form, through "bouncing about", as it might appear, and then releases it quickly. Failure to do so can corrupt a Pokemon's data and result in such monstrosities as Missingno or ?, and so is it to be generally avoided. It is possible to hack a Pokeball and override this safety method, but when you get an ornery corrupt distortion of reality that devours you, don't blame the company that made it- there's a disclaimer. The one exception to this rule is the Master Ball, which is made of advanced, expensive technology that can suppress mental resistance and physical motion for an IMMEDIATE capture- but, alas, this type is extremely expensive to produce and therefore very rare. Watermarked Pokemon load faster, as well as are likely used to the process, so working with Pokemon you own is much simpler.
Now, the apricorns- an apricorn, when molded, kneaded and treated properly, becomes the rubbery material a Pokeball is formed of. Different species have different advantages for different features, and a true Pokemon Master will know to use the best Pokeball for the situation possible to get the job done.
