As I highlighted earlier there are a ton of different Poke Balls for players to use in Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield. These Poke Balls all have unique use cases and can be very beneficial to have on hand. One Poke Ball you may not have encountered yet is the Love Ball. This Poke Ball works best to catch Pokemon that are of the opposite gender to the gender of the Pokemon you send out to battle. If this Poke Ball sounds interesting to you, you’ve come to the right place. Here’s how to get the Love Ball in Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield.
Guaranteed: Get Love Ball From Poke Ball Man in Ballonlea Stadium
One guaranteed way to get a Love Ball is to visit the Poke Ball Man inside Ballonlea Stadium. If you haven’t spoken to him before know that he gives you a special Poke Ball for speaking to him in each of the different stadiums across the Galar region. If you speak to him in the Ballonlea Stadium you will be receive a single Love Ball for your troubles. Not bad at all.
Possible Alternatives: Buy in Wild Areas or Trade with Friends
Poke Ball Man will only give you one Love Ball in the Ballonlea Stadium which isn’t much. If you want to get more there is the possibility for you to buy some from Wild Area merchants (sell 1x special Poke Ball/day) or to trade with friends. Since this is considered a rare Poke Ball getting a stock pile of them will be difficult.
