This happens a lot, so I figured it couldn't hurt to set up a topic to help folks out. Note I have always returned balls from misfires whenever I was asked, but I realize most people don't know the option exists.

If you've accidentally clicked a rare Poké Ball (by rare I mean the ones that can't be purchased in-game) and caught something you didn't want to catch with it, just post here with a link to the Pokémon. I'll take it from you and return the ball to your bag.

Any Poké Ball that can be gotten from a Poké Mart or the berry balls that can be gotten from synthesis do not qualify as rare and will not be returned.

Your Ball Will Not Be Returned If...

- The Pokémon is more than a week old.
(because then it comes across as you having had second thoughts and/or wanting to sell the ball)
- The Pokémon has been used for anything that gives you something since being caught (trading, breeding, extracting card via Marie, extracting sprite via Spray Paint)
(because then you've used the Pokémon for something, which makes it come across as not really a misfire and/or would make it so that returning the ball would mean you got free profit, and could encourage intentionally clicking the wrong ball to get a sprite/card/offspring then asking for it back)

Please report misfires ASAP. I will return the ball and take the Pokémon, and let you know. If your Pokémon doesn't qualify, I'll let you know as well.

Exceptionally today since the topic just opened I can accept Pokémon which are over a week old, in case you didn't know you could get the ball back before then. Well it is no longer the day the topic opened, so this is now void.

Don't double-post.

Also, those Pokémon do not qualify for ball returns as they are more than a week old. Please read the post thoroughly.

While I don't believe Chocoballs count, didn't Shiro just say that it'll count if they're over a week old for today only?

Choco Balls used on Easter Mareep don't count since they were part of the event and thus not used by accident. It also strikes me as unlikely that a ball would be used by accident on a Silver Pidgey - this topic is here for people who accidentally use balls on things they don't want to catch.

Choco Balls do count as rare though, since they can't be purchased in-game anymore.

Oh, thanks, Shiro.
I really didn't want to use my Chocoball on this Wynaut.

Sorry for making you inconvenience. ​I didn't want to use choco ball but I clicked it instead of search again button mistakenly.

If possible would this qualify? I wanted to use a great ball but ended up accidentally using a chocoball instead. I didn't want to use my last one so I could keep it since it would be unobtainable after the event. I didn't think it would be important enough to warrant a return but I thought I could at least try asking. :0a

Catching something you wanted to catch and using the wrong ball does not count. Besides this, Wish Wynaut could come holding Wish Tags (I can't tell whether this one did or not), which is getting something out of them.

I'll give Luckydog some credit and believe that they didn't want to catch the Pidgey. I'll return their Choco Ball, as well as Bubblebeam's and Madsie's.

Please put balls you don't want to use on Pokémon (give it for them to hold). That way you can avoid misfires like this.

Out of curiosity, if I misfired something and then evolved it for the heck of it, believing that there could be no ball returned, would I still qualify? :Oa

I misfired a Rocket Ball ages ago on a Graveler, and evolved it for the heck of it when using it as fodder to trade over an item to someone, believing that I couldn't get the ball back ): I fully understand if it can't be switched for this reason, though! I haven't bred it... or... anything for the nature, it's just sitting in my boxes underloved other than the fact that it was evolved and traded a few times as fodder.

Unfortunately I can't return the ball if the Pokémon's been traded. :( On the plus side though at least it's... breedable without Ditto? ;;

Will return SHPN's shortly.

Oh hey just noticed this topic.

Awhile ago during the event I was refreshing on my phone and hit a Choco Ball on this totally normal Wynaut ;; Could I possibly get it back please?
