In-Depth Effect
The Love Ball is a PokéBall obtained from Kurt. This ball has a capture rate which is dependant on the gender of both your Pokémon and the opponent Pokémon. If the Pokémon are of different genders and is of the same species, then the capture rate is 8. If however, the Pokémon are of the same gender or either Pokémon is genderless, then the capture rate is 1. In Gold, Silver & Crystal, this effect was glitched and only had the increase on same gender Pokémon and of the same species
This item cannot be given to Pokémon to hold in HeartGold & SoulSilver. 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.
