    I caught a Ditto with a Luxury Ball. I wanted to treat that Ditto RIGHT. Also I needed to get rid of it xD

    I always try to use Luxury Balls because I think they look cooler then the rest.

    I often use specialty balls. Got a few with Heal Balls, Dusk Balls, Quick Balls, and Timer Balls. I only resort to Luxury Balls if the particular 'mon evolves with friendship.

    I catch 90% of my Pokemon using Quick Balls (except for some legendaries, such as Kyurem and Registeel, which I caught with Dusk Balls).

    I love using the other types of Poke Balls. I hate the standard red/white type, I just find them too weak and boring. I admit, I was a bit shocked to find out several years later that Great Balls and Ultra Balls were not as strong as I thought they were (I thought they had a catch rate of x2 and x4, respectively), but I still prefer them over Poke Balls, and use them often. I absolutely love Quick and Dusk Balls, they just make it so fun (plus their release animations are cool, especially the Dusk Ball), and Repeat Balls make it more helpful when I need to catch a certain Pokemon again. Heck, Heal Balls are more common in my pack vs. standard Poke Balls, and they have the same catch rate (though a much more useful effect). Plus I just like a little variety with my team's Poke Balls, and they look awesome in the 3D games (PBR, for example). So, yeah, I prefer to use the other types of Poke Balls vs. standard ones. To me, they're worth the extra money if it means I have a better chance at catching a Pokemon I like or want, along with the cosmetic difference.

    I normally use Pokeballs or Ultraballs.

    I have used the others not because I wanted to but because I had no choice. sometimes I'll make the mistake of running low on Pokeballs and forgetting to replenish my supply, so I run out. Along the way a Pokemon I want to capture appears, so I have to look at the Pokeball bag and see what is available and might be useful for that specific Pokemon.

    I like to use Nest Balls and Repeat balls at times for catching low level Pokemon and when chaining.

    The ones I use most are:

    Repeat Ball: when I'm trying to catch a different gender of a Pokémon I've already got in my Pokédex (usually for breeding purposes)
    Timer Ball: usually on legendary Pokémon if it's taking forever to catch by other means
    Net Ball: on wild Water- and Bug-type Pokémon I come across
    Dive Ball: handy while Surfing
    Quick Ball: can't hurt to throw one and try my luck! Especially since the catch rate is 5× in BW and BW2, up from 4× in previous games
    Dusk Ball: I almost always play Pokémon on a night time, so yeah, Dusk Balls are my first port of call unless I have a more specialised ball that has a higher catch rate

    I like using dusk and net balls for their increased catch rate though it is situational at times. At the beginning of every capture attempt I always open up with a quick ball because it has a high rate if used on turn 1 and I really have nothing to lose by doing that since they become useless right after. In HGSS I frequently used love balls for their incredible catch rate and since I keep genders in my party even between male and female. I also used heavy balls at times for snorlax and legendaries since most (especially Groudon) weigh a ton and have high catch rates as a result.

    Generally not, though I did use a Heal Ball in Pinwheel Forest on White, when most of my team were on low health to avoid going back to the Pokemon Centre. I didn't realise until after Twist Mountain that Doctors and Nurses heal Pokemon.
    I reserve the right to randomly sign my messages.
    My 3rd Medalist Pokemon was Magikarp, and it earned that position alone with no other species.
    I have too many Bouncekarp.

    I always buy extra Dusk Balls for legendaries, since I prefer to catch them at night. I also buy Timer Balls for Pokemon that might take a long time to catch - Timer Balls are what saved me when I was catching Dialga and Palkia in Platinum.

    Dusk and Ultra balls are the only ones worth using most of the time. I still never figure out when to use my master ball in any game.

    Occasionally. I just throw whatever I have in my bag, unless I want to actually use the pokemon. I.E quickball on a Joltik, due to matching color schemes, or a dusk ball on a dark type.
    Planned Alpha Sapphire Team: Sceptile, Sableye, Manectric, Torkoal, Exploud, and Walrein.

    Current LeafGreen Team: Venusaur, Nidoqueen, Lapras, Persian, Ninetales, and Jolteon.
