PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

So I don’t know exactly how to explain this. An example I guess. Say a Pikemon hatches and is in a luxury Ball, will the Pokemons friebdship go up faster? I think that’s what luxury Balls do. And if so are there other Pike Balls like that? If there are what are they and what do they do?

I never thought of this before. +1
Yeah  i come up with odd Wuesyions sometimes XD

Best answer

There are three Poké Balls with additional effects (other than catch rate modifiers).

Friend Ball: Sets caught Pokémon's friendship to 200.
Heal Ball: Fully restores a caught Pokémon's HP, PP, and status.
Luxury Ball: Doubles the rate in which the contained Pokémon receives friendship.


To answer your question about Eggs:

A Pokémon hatched from an Egg starts with 120 happiness, and it goes
on a scale of 0-255. Caught Pokémon start with a species-specific base
friendship stat, and Pokémon caught in a Friend Ball start with 200.

That said...

Yes, as the Poké Balls can be inherited starting in X/Y, a Pokémon can
inherit the boosting effects of a Luxury Ball even if it was hatched
from an Egg, as long as it inherited the Luxury Ball.

Soo only  luxury  Then?
I think they were implying it works for any ball, but were talking about Luxury Balls specifically.
Well egg Pokemon start with full hp so heal ball does nothing
Yeah. Although, I felt that this was two questions in one, so I decided to put it anyway.
