There are a variety of tools that trainers can use to help them in Pokemon Sword and Shield. However, one of the most sought after of these tools is no doubt the Master Ball. The legendary piece of equipment has always been known for its ability to allow trainers to catch any wild creature without any chance of failure. Fortunately, we have everything you need to know to get your Master Ball covered for you.

Players will be able to collect one Master Ball by securing all eight gym badges in the Galar Region and then achieving victory at the Champion Cup. An NPC character will reward you with the coveted piece of equipment following the conclusion of the game’s credits.

You can also obtain another Master Ball by daily Loto-ID. This Loto-ID allows players to win prizes with drawings based on the ID number of the characters you have in your boxes. Those who are wanting from a Master Ball from the Loto-ID activity will have to match five or more IDs to receive the lucrative prize through this particular method. 

This item will no doubt make an excellent addition to your Pokemon Sword and Shield inventory, as it guarantees that one character who you have been searching for to add to your team will not be able to get away the next time you face them. Unfortunately for those looking to get this item quickly, you will have to make your way through the game’s story before you can guarantee that you will have one added to your collection.
