To get a Master Ball, you need to be working on the Special Research as part of the game’s tenth season: Rising Heroes.
The final part (which rewards the Master Ball) will release on May 22nd, 2023, at 10 a.m. your local time. It only lasts until June 1st, 2023, at 10 a.m. your local time, when the tenth season ends. Complete the Special Research between those dates and times to get your Master Ball.
Each player will only get one, which is a tradition from the franchise’s mainline games, considering how powerful the Master Ball is. You’ll want to save it for something special. The Galarian Zapdos might be a good choice, since it’s notorious for running away.
