Pokémon Scarlet and Violet feature various Pokémon to encounter and catch throughout Paldea. Normally you use Pokéballs when catching Pokémon, but you can use different types of Pokéballs, including Lure Balls, to make this process easier. This may leave you wondering where to find Lure Balls in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
Where to get Lure Balls in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet
You cannot get Lure Balls from the Delibird Presents store like other Pokéball variants but instead must get them at the Porto Marinada Market. Lure Balls will be available randomly, but you will first need to defeat the Cascarrafa Gym Challenge and register 300 Pokémon in your Pokédex. Once you do this, Lure Balls will start appearing in the auction house in Porto Marinada Market. You will need to successfully place the highest bid on the item you want to purchase it.
You can also get Lure balls as a reward from the Academy Ace Tournament as a reward. This will unlock after you defeat all eight gyms in the Gym Challenge. You can win many rewards randomly, including Lure Balls.
What do Lure Balls do in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet?
The Lure Ball in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet will have an increased chance of catching Pokémon when on water. Normally it increases the odds of catching a Pokémon when reeled in with a rod, but this method doesn't exist in Scarlet and Violet. Lure Balls are a great way to round out your collection of Water-type Pokémon.
