In-Depth Effect
The Lure Ball is a PokéBall obtained from Kurt. This ball has an increased capture rate for Pokémon that have been hooked with a Fishing Rod. If the wild Pokémon was hooked by fishing, the capture rate is 3. However, if it's not been hooked by a fishing rod, the capture rate is 1.
This item cannot be given to Pokémon to hold. If a Pokémon is captured in this PokéBall and traded to Diamond, Pearl or Platinum, it will revert in those games to an ordinary PokéBall.

CatchValue = ((( 3 * Max HP - 2 * HP ) * ((Catch Rate * 3) * 1 ) / (3 * Max HP) ) * Status Modifier
