This is a page on where to find the Master Ball in Pokemon Sword and Shield. Additionally, the Master Ball's effect and uses can be found here, so read on if you would like to know more about how to obtain this item.
List of Contents
After entering the Hall of Fame and completing the game, you will receive the Master Ball from Professor Magnolia upon the next time starting the game.
Like in other games in the series, the Master Ball can also be obtained by correctly matching the winning Loto-ID.
|Effect||The best Poke Ball with the ultimate level of performance. With it, you will catch any wild Pokemon without fail.|
Our recommendation for when to use the Master Ball is after completing the story, when faced with the Legendary Pokemon Zacian or Zamazenta. If you are not concerned about the type of ball your Pokemon go into, then the Master Ball is best saved for legendaries.
Since the Master Ball is guaranteed to catch any Pokemon, you can use it to speed up the process of capturing any hard to catch Pokemon. These would include legendary Pokemon who cannot be obtained from an egg, Ditto, or Gigantamax bosses encountered in a raid.

Don't use the master ball on Zacian or Zamazenta!! Use it on a shiny wild pokemon you find that might use moves like explosion or teleport, or a shiny max den pokemon that is from an ongoing event or from a max den you join. Shiny pokemon (and non-shiny too) from max dens that you host and are not from an ongoing event have 100% catch rate. Save those master balls!
