A Pokémon Go player is being praised and mocked by other fans online for using the hard-to-obtain Master Ball in the Pokémon meme.

It took several years for them to be included, but Pokémon Go finally added Master Balls in 2023. Like the Master Balls in the main Pokémon games, they have a 100% capture rate, ensuring you can get the Pokémon you find without any difficulty.

Those willing to pay money can win a main ball as part of a special quest event. Not many players like to pay for a Master Ball, but many do, since this guaranteed catch is very valuable for people looking for a specific type of Pokémon.

The fact that Master Balls are valuable also means that some players enjoy using them on non-meta or weaker Pokémon and sharing their feats online. The most recent example is a curious one, as the Master Ball was used on a rare Pokémon that is also very common.

A Pokémon Go player used a valuable Master Ball on a shiny Bidoof

User for Pokemon Go on Reddit He revealed that he used the Master Ball to catch Shiny Bidoof, a Pokémon highly prized for its memetic qualities. This sparked mixed reactions from other users in the thread, with some praising the decision.

“Well, this is not just a bid. This is a shiny bidof. I don't know what a sane person would do. What if he runs away? No, in the presence of God hold him, yes hold him!”, one user wrote, while another said: “Glory be to God Almighty “.

However, not everyone was so kind, with one user saying: “What's with the obsession with wasting Master Balls?”, while another said: “I want to study the brain of anyone who finds this funny.”

While this may seem like a waste of a Main Ball, it's worth noting that Shiny Pokemon are still rare and always worth adding to your collection. Of course, it's better to spend a Master Ball on a legendary or rare Pokemon, but the value of Shiny isn't that far off, regardless of the Pokemon.
