Sounds like someone used their Master Ball. You can't reuse Pokeballs that never even housed a Pokemon. This is just pitiful. I sincerely hope the person asking this is 8 years old and playing Pokemon for the first time. On the other hand, that means eight year-olds are running around with cell phones. Protip: A Pokeball is a lot like a diaper. Side note: unless the asker wants their Master Ball back, WHAT A BUM! 200 Pokedollars too rich for your blood?
a229 Absolutely not. A Pokeball is a one-use item.
