|All Dusk Ball Locations|
|1||Fallarbor Town Poké Mart — Purchasable for 1000 Pokédollars each||Yes|
|2||Route 120 — Defeat Street Thug Gomez in a rematch (20% chance)||Yes|
|3||Route 120 — Defeat Delinquent Sharlene in a rematch (20% chance)||Yes|
Dusk Balls can be obtained through a few different methods, but the most reliable way to get Dusk Balls is by purchasing them from the Fallarbor Poké Mart for 1000 Pokédollars each.
Or if you’re looking to save some money, you can also obtain Dusk Balls by defeating Street Thug Gomez or Delinquent Sharlene in a rematch. Rematches can be initiated through the Trainer’s Eye function on the PokéNav Plus.
Unfortunately, the chances of receiving a Dusk Ball as a reward for defeating either of them are only 20%. You can find both Street Thug Gomez and Delinquent Sharlene on Route 120.
Method #1: Fallarbor Town Poké Mart
The Fallarbor Poké Mart is located directly south of the town’s Pokémon Center. This is where you can purchase Dusk Balls for 1000 Pokédollars each.
Method #2: Rematch with Street Thug Gomez
The AreaNav is a feature of the PokéNav Plus, which displays the map of the Hoenn Region.
Upon selecting the map, you will see various tabs, including the Trainer’s Eye tab.
This tab allows you to locate specific trainers across Hoenn who are ready for a rematch, indicated by a “Battle Ready” sign next to their profile.
When you defeat rematchable trainers, you have a small chance of obtaining an item as a reward.
When you defeat Street Thug Gomez, he has a 20% chance of giving you one Dusk Ball.
Street Thug Gomez can be found in the southwestern area of Route 120. Once you find him, initiate the rematch by speaking to him.
Just check the Trainer’s Eye tab on Route 120 to determine if he’s available for a rematch. If he is, fly back to Route 121 since it’s nearer to his exact location.
And here’s where to find this exact NPC:
Step 1: Fly to the Route 121 sign, then exit Route 121 on your left and head to Route 120.
Step 2: Once you’re on Route 120, keep heading west past the Pokémon Ranger.
Step 3: Keep an eye out for an opening on the left-hand side of the path. Head west through it and keep following the path.
Step 4: When you see an Aroma Lady NPC, you’re getting close.
Look for a staircase nearby and climb up it.
Step 5: After climbing the stairs, head straight into the tall grass in front of you.
Step 6: At the bottom of the stairs you’ll find Street Thug Gomez. Talk to him to start the rematch.
Method #3: Rematch with Delinquent Sharlene
Defeating Delinquent Sharlene in a rematch gives you a 20% chance to obtain a Dusk Ball as well.
To check if she’s available for a rematch, use the Trainer’s Eye tab on Route 120.
If Delinquent Sharlene is available for a rematch, then first head over to the same location of Street Thug Gomez on Route 120 (Delinquent Sharlene is located nearby).
Here’s her exact location:
Step 1: From where Street Thug Gomez is located, head up the nearby stairs and turn left to talk to Delinquent Sharlene for a rematch.
How Do Dusk Balls Work?
Dusk Balls have a catch rate modifier of 3.5x when used at night or inside a cave. However, during the daytime their catch rate modifier is only 1x.
In Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire, nighttime occurs between 6:00 pm and 3:59 am (18:00 to 03:59).
Here’s a table that compares the catch rate modifiers and prices of other frequently-used Pokéballs:
|Type of Pokéball||Catch Rate Modifier||Price|
|Dusk Ball (used at night or in a cave)||3.5x||1000|
