The Friend Ball Replica is now available on the Pokemon Center website


Pokemon fans and collectors will be interested in this beautiful die-cast Friend Ball replica, available now from Pokemon Center.

The Pokemon Company and The Wand Company have announced a brand new item in the Poke Ball replica series: the Friend Ball is now available for purchase on the Pokemon Center website.

The Friend Ball is a die-cast replica of the design straight from the Pokemon games. It has a multi-color motion sensing light and comes in a uniquely numbered case. The replica is true to size, fitting perfectly in the palm of the hand.

In games, it is said that Pokémon that are caught with a Friend Ball will become friendlier to the trainer who catches them. This special type of Poke Ball was introduced in Pokemon Gold and Pokemon Silver.

Here is what the official Pokemon Center website lists the Friend Ball replica details:

  • Includes Friend Ball, black display case, polished stainless steel display ring (hidden at bottom of display case), illustrated manual, 3 AA batteries installed in display case, and 3 AAA batteries installed inside Poké Ball
  • Friend Ball measures nearly 75mm in diameter, based on its actual size in the world of Pokemon
  • Detailed die-cast metal shell with a high-gloss lacquer finish
  • Touch and proximity sensing technology with illumination
  • Can be displayed in the display case or separately on the included display ring
  • Officially licensed by The Pokémon Company International and manufactured by The Wand Company

The Friend Ball replica is $99 with a purchase limit of two per customer.

This is the second of four cased Poke Ball replicas to be available for purchase in 2022; earlier this year the Heal Ball design was introduced and is still available to order for a limited time. Quick Ball and Cherish Ball designs are still to be expected before the end of the year.

It is also part of the second series of Poke Ball replicas produced by the Wand Company; Previously, they’ve created replicas featuring the designs of the standard Poke Ball, Great Ball, Ultra Ball, Dusk Ball, and Premier Ball.
