A Pokemon Go player is being praised and mocked by other fans online for using an incredibly hard-to-obtain Key Ball on the Pokemon Meme.

It took several years for them to be included, but Pokemon Go finally added Master Balls in 2023. Like the Master Balls from the main Pokemon games, they have a 100% capture rate, ensuring you're able to capture Pokemon you encounter.

Those willing to pay can have a major ball as part of a special research event. Many players hate paying for a Key Ball, but many do, because this guaranteed catch is of great value to people looking for a specific type of Pokemon.

The fact that Master Balls are valuable also means that some players enjoy using them on non-meta or weaker Pokémon and sharing their actions online. The most recent example is a strange one, as the Master Ball was used on a rare Pokémon that is also very common.

“Well, this is not just a bid. This is a shiny bidof. I don't know what a sane person would do. What if he escapes?? Nah. In the presence of God, you can catch him, yes you do!” one user wrote, while another said: “Thank God “The Great.”

However, not everyone was so kind as one user said, “What's up with the madness of missing key balls?” While another said: “I want to study the brain of anyone who finds this funny.”

While this may seem like a waste of a Main Ball, it's worth noting that Shiny Pokemon are still rare and always worth adding to your collection. Sure, the Main Ball is better spent on a Mythical or Mythical Pokemon, but the Shiny Ball isn't far behind in value, regardless of the Pokemon.

This isn't the first time a Pokemon Go player has used a Key Ball on Bidoof, and it won't be the last. People love the dullness of the Bidoof line, the cue ball is only valuable when it's used, and what better way than to ensure you have a shiny Bidoof in your collection?
