In the vast lands that is within each and every mainline Pokémon game, the rather extensive list of Poké Balls can be just as intimidating to consider and explore. Case in point with the Lure Balls – a specific type of Poké Ball that has the effect of catching Pokémon in or on water more successfully.

Since this is once again a situational selection depending on which location or type of Pokémon you are intending on capturing, bagging a couple or even a handful of these will make the act of collecting them much more straightforward. Here’s where you can find them.

Where to get Lure Balls in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

Like the majority of Poké Balls in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, many of the more uncommon types will not become readily available to buy. This is the case even if you have cleared the game. When it comes to the Lure Balls, this is no different.

Lure Balls can only be obtained within the location of Porto Marinada. This is specifically within its Auctions. Each and every visit here will either be a hit or a miss since the items on offer here will always be randomised. Visit it frequently for a chance of nabbing at least one as often as possible.

The only other time you can locate a Lure Ball is within your Pokédex. Through the completion of it, you will be rewarded at 300 entries with a Lure Ball.

These are the only two opportunities that we know of that offer Lure Balls to players. For any further support in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, check out our other guides where we cover all things maps, locations and achievements wise. Happy capturing and collecting, and safe travels!
