I mean, you are in space.

So... are Dusk Balls x3.5 or are they x1?

>In-Depth Effect
The Dusk Ball is a PokéBall that is more effective within Dark enviornments. Within Caves or at night-time, the Capture Rate is a massive 3.5. However, at any other times, the Capture Rate is 1
~ Serebii

According to Serebii, the Dusk Ball works "within Dark environments", and space is pretty darn dark. Unless Game Freak had another lapse in logic, outer space is counted as a dark environment. (You could also say that space is considered nighttime).

After throwing almost my entire stock of Dusk and Ultra Balls at Deoxys, I'd agree and say that the Dusk Balls do seem to work at x3.5 (they shook more often than Ultra Balls).
