    During my first red (gb) play through I wasted it on a ditto. Legendaries are so easy to catch back then.

    On a MewTwo on Pokémon X.
    I've played every single Pokémon game and beaten almost all of them, but never used the master ball.

    I'm not sure. Either Mewtwo in Yellow or Rayquaza in Ruby or Emerald. Since then I make it a point to not use a Master Ball, but I've gotten multiple ones on OR through trade requests, so I can always use them.

    Lugia on Silver. Back then, I was like "wooooow, a legendary Pokemon!!!!", and since I was so afraid of killing it, I used my Master Ball on the first turn.
    Aside from that game, I never really used the Master Ball. I prefer the Pokeball / Hyper ball / Dusk ball / Luxury Ball designs :P

    Mewtwo in Pokemon Red. :P

    Then, when the god damn roaming Pokemon came around, I always saved the Master Ball for those bastards.
    Those guys shouldn't exist. -,-

    Mine was Mewtwo on Pokèmon Y. Now I just save them for roaming legendaries or a shiny Pokemon that can flee because with legendaries that appear in the over world you can save in front of them and keep soft resetting.

    Groudon in Pokemon Ruby.
    I was still a kid and got overexcited.
    Never used a masterball early on ever. Usually use it for the last legendary of the game.

    Gambia, The
    rby legendaries catch rates were just as lousy as they are today.
    most new legendaries however get pretty friendly rates. so catching yveltal or xerneas is actually easy. and we got stronger balls too.

    as for the question, like most people playing without guides and people to tell me about mewtwo, i used it on the first bird i ran across, molteress.

    When I was young and playing Pokemon FireRed, I was convinced that Moltres, Articuno, and Zapdos were the only legendaries in the game.
    Despite the fact that I knew what Mewtwo was, I still used my master ball on those three exclusively.
    On one run, I remember catching all three of them without a master ball, and celebrating by catching a Pidgey with it.

    Another stupid thing: I was deathly afraid of Mewtwo because I misheard what one of my friends said as "he will be on cinnibar island at level 1000". I remember getting my Charizard to level 80 using only the VS recorder and Route 13 before resetting my game with my OP pokemon why!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I eventually figured out he was talking about something else in Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Darkness instead of FireRed. Drat.
