    i would only ever use a master ball on a shiny that can end the battle by itself, using moves such as explosion or roar.

    Think I used my Masterball in Silver and Emerald on Lugia and Raquaza respectively. In FireRed I SRed for a shiny Mewtwo, so kinda used it on both. Since using it on Palkia in Pearl and then having a shiny Kadabra teleport away from me I've learned my lesson and now save it for a shiny. Not that I've seen one since then...

    I have used my masterball on mostly legendaries, only because so far the only wild shiny I have yet to encounter was a level 3 ratata.... sigh.

    I would use a master ball on a legendary that runs away. If the legendary that flees was a shiny then I'd (lose my mind and cry heavily) catch it in a master ball.

    If I ever found a shiny Rayquaza......

    All bets would be off and all the Master Balls would be thrown; granted I don't drown myself in tears.

    Yeah I would on a legendary. After I prove to myself that I can catch it without it, then it's just soft resetting to get one with great IVs. I have no patience for weakening and catching only to know the thing is garbage. Masterball ftw

    There used to be a time when I'd chuck a master ball at a legendary. But now I'll reserve it instead for a shiny, granted I ever come across one...

    I'm fairly certain roaming legendaries don't change at all once they flee, so it would still be shiny if you encountered it again. However, I'd use a Masterball on one of them out of paranoia lol.

    I'd use a Masterball on a shiny if it could flee or selfdestruct/explode and also if I felt I might risk causing it to faint before being able to capture it with regular balls.

    Legendary. Sometimes they are way too hard for me to catch.
     
  12. Most of the times I keep Master Balls for unexpected hard Shinies.

    Only if I have no other options. That's why it's there.

    Well I would always use master balls for roaming legendaries, but besides that I don't use the master ball

    Depending on how lazy I am, I'll Master Ball anything.
     
  16. Used the masterball on Kyurem in Black 2 because he was the mascot, otherwise only as a last resort on shinies.

    Me, I use only in Legendaries, for me they are more hard to catch. I think a shiny only makes you feel excited that makes you to catch it on the 1st attempt.

    A legendary, definitely. There's plenty of shinies out there. They're rare, but limit-less. And they aren't any harder to catch than normal Pokemon. Legendaries, there is only one of each, and they are REALLY hard to catch.
