Input on rarest/most desirable Pokeball/Pokémon combo to acquire?

    I stopped playing Pokémon after gold/silver, and began again once ultra sun and moon came out, so I’ve missed a lot on breeding and what Pokeballs and Pokémon combo are most sought after or hardest to get so you’ll have to excuse my novice knowledge on this, I have been reading up on it trying to understand.

    My goal with US/UM is to get the rarest and most sought after Pokémon/Pokeball combos to breed more of, and find over GTS.

    From reading, I see Safari, Bug catching ball, and dream ball Pokémon are highly sought after, as well as starters and fossil in anything but Pokeball, but with island scan bringing starters back I am not sure if starters are rare in apricorn balls anymore. I also remember reading in HG/SS many safari Pokémon were sought after because of the lengthy days they took to find, again I don’t know if they are still rare or sought after since then or which ones are the most sought after. I also read snorlax and sudowoodo used to be rare in apricorn balls but now that their in US/UM I imagine they are easy to get in those balls.

    I heard a debate ditto can be in safari ball but can’t find proof of it?

    I’ve been looking at the Pokeball database here and it’s been helpful, but there’s so much information and I’ve missed a huge breeding gap and through the generations I realize rarity might have Changed for breeding availability’s, so any help is appreciated! I’d definitely like to focus on rarest safari, dream, sought after non Pokeball Pokémon and bug catching Pokémon I can catch/trade for in US/UM

    Cherish Balls could also be desirable due to them always containing event Pokémon.

    I think Dream Balls are very rare since the method to get them now apart from breeding the Pokemon, isn't around anymore.

    Ditto can be in Safari Balls since they can appear in the Wetland area of the HGSS Safari Zone. Fossil Pokemon in anything other than regular Poke Balls are also very rare as the Gen 5 Dream World is no longer active (even more so if they have a HA). Just be aware Fossil Pokemon in Apricorn, Safari, Sport and Beast Balls are illegitimate.

    Which Pokémon are hardest to get in dream ball, or most desirable?

    Here's a list via Smogon: https://www.smogon.com/ingame/guides/special_ball

    Dream Radar Pokemon: Drifloon, Hoothoot, Igglybuff, Munna, Porygon, Ralts, Riolu, Shuckle, Sigilyph, Slowpoke, Smoochum, Spiritomb, Swablu, Togepi

    If you see any Pokemon not on this list in a Dream Ball, most likely they're not legal ones.

    What do you mean? Any Pokémon you could get from the dream world or from dream world events can be found in a dream ball. Nidoran, Eevee, lots of others. I even have Arceus in a dream ball!

    Or did you mean the whole list on the site with all the dream world Pokémon? Sorry for assuming, then!

    Fair enough.

    I meant in terms of the Dream World Pokemon in general. Forgot what you mentioned, since it's been a long time since the Dream World was around.

    I’m guessing Manafi meant Pokémon you could only get through the web browser Dreamworld. Several Pokémon currently can’t be found having their HA when found in the wild. Furret is one example. Dream Radar is the only way other than Grottoes to find HA Pokémon other than the few that are guaranteed to have their HA like the Darmanitan outside Relic Castle or the Musharna in the Dreamyard.

    That's fine! The only reason I remember this stuff is I've been breeding dream ball eevees.

    Legitametly anything other that an ultra beast in a beast ball (The percentage is so low, even on some non-legendaries, that it's a guarantee not to capture). Plus, any non-legendary in a master ball is pretty rare.

    You can still get Pokemon in Dream Balls through the Dream Radar game, it's still available to download though unless you already got one when it was out a BW2 game is hard to get nowadays
