    I think it depends on the pokeball. All of them do have a magical energy substance, but some are different from others, because of all the different pokeballs there are, and how they work the best.

    You still don't have to shout at loud "Come on out!" or something, I prefer the system recognizes your hand-movements too.

    What comes to the material current Poké Balls are made of, I'd say it's some ingredient found only in the Pokémon World. Possibly close to a light metal. I personally can't believe they're made of plastic.

    Everything is possible.

    What I believe is, that Pokéballs are mostly made of some sort of metal unique to the Pokémon world. However, I think nano technology also plays some sort of role, since such advanced technology would be difficult, if not impossible, to keep inside a ball-sized container with only regular sized materials. However, that still leaves the question on how apricorn Pokéballs work... Think I'll come back to this thread later if I find a decent answer.

    I'm guessing it's not comprised of metal, or at least not very hard metal. Isn't it shown that Pokeballs can break in the anime? I'm not sure, I'm not really an anime person >_>

    Lower-quality balls—normal Pokéballs—might be made of copper. Higher-quality balls—Great Balls all the way up to Master Balls—might be made of silver of varying purity. The reason being that silver is the most electrically conductive element, followed by the cheaper copper. I think there's a good chance that Pokéballs convert Pokémon to electromagnetic energy, so that would be important.

    Well, I think that Poke balls are made out of a light, thin metal on the inside, but I don't know what the outside would be. I think the inside of the Apricorn balls don't really matter, it's the outside, since the color of the apricorn determines the properties that the poke ball will have. That's why regular poke balls and master balls look different on the outside.

    Maybe all poke balls are the same on the inside, but the outside skin determines the strength or special capabilities of it.

    I believe what ever it is, its made from a material similar to Apricorns in the pokeworld. that's why Kurt could make specilaized pokeballs.

    I would assume its something like Carbon Fiber? Its a strong substance that still has a very low weight.

    Maybe the frame inside is made of Apricons, and the shell of some light metal?

    I think that what pokeballs do is something along Fox's lines, because it makes the most sense as to how both capture and storage work. Otherwise, they may just space out / scatter the molecules making up a pokemon for storage, and regather them when the pokemon is sent out. (I'm pretty sure that I got this idea from Tron Legacy...)

    Or they could maybe just scatter the common elements, and store the others.

    That said, pokeballs would, I'd think, have a strange application of various rare earth metals.
    Feel free(r) to discuss Battle Strategy with me--I'll discuss anything really.

    Besides being a strange (retired) battler with a storied, legendary, mythical, exaggerated, and relatively unknown career, I am also an amateur English B&W anime reviewer. (pachiba, you like?)

    And I take hoedowns seriously.

    Metal is mandatory for conductance in the internal circuitry (preferably silver, as there is less natural ohm strength to weaken the power). As of Lucario and the Mystery of Mew, it's safe to say that an Aura Crystal is embedded near the core or internal shell of the pokeball. The circuitry would be used to energize the Aura Crystal. Probably utilizes a small watch battery to keep it running. Wouldn't be surprised if the routine visits to the pokemon center are used to recharge the power supply. Likely utilizes collapsible, curved blades that withdraw to allow for the re-sizing of the pokeball.

    In fact, I could theoretically design the Devon Pokeball series alongside blueprints to explain how the process works scientifically. (Note that the Aura Crystals are required to explain any of it.)

    Edit: Following Vulpes, the ball itself may or may not be made of metal. It's the internal circuitry that's definitely made of metal. As for the "conversion" of Pokemon energy, it's far more likely that it's not due to any man-made technology that can do the conversion, but a utilization of the Aura Crystals (which appear to be reasonably capable resources for mining and what-not) that themselves somehow work on the piezoelectric effect. I agree that the type of material utilized would definitely effect the capability of the pokeball. With the Aura Crystals no longer having a natural connection to their "mother earth", that they require a separate energy source to energize them, thus a voltage source, as mentioned above.

    I think they are made of metal or some kind of super hard,shrinking magic plastic.

    I would think that they would be made of some light metal, maybe aluminum or carbon fiber, plastic, but not any "heavy" metals such as steel, silver, gold, etc. Whenever anyone touches a PokeBall (i.e. picking it up after a capture) in the anime, the noise it makes doesn't seem to be of a metallic kind.
