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.

Use it when you want to save time on catching a Pokemon

Gigantamax
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.
