How to get Lure Balls in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

Water Pokémon don't stand a chance.

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.

Lure Balls are a great way to round out your collection of Water-type Pokémon.
