If you plan to catch a lot of different Water-type Pokemon in Scarlet and Violet, you’re going to want to consider investing in Lure Balls. These are special Pokeballs that are meant to be used when fishing for Pokemon. Introduced back in Generation 2, Lure Balls were an item craftable with apricorns. They work best in catching Pokemon that typically live underwater.
In Violet and Scarlet, Lure Balls are a special exclusive item that you can’t just get anywhere. Fortunately, they aren’t too difficult to find, though actually accumulating them requires some luck. This is where to get Lure Balls in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.

There is only one place you can get Lure Balls in the entire region and that is in Porto Marinada. This starts when the gym staff at Cascarrafa gives you gym leader Kofu’s wallet. Kofu has gone off to participate in the auctions but forgot his money, and you are tasked with returning it to him.
To get there, you need to pass through the Asado Desert. Marking it as a destination on your map will help you get there. For the most straightforward route, you’ll want to leave from the northern entrance of Cascarrafa. Go northwest in the sand until you reach the end.
How To Collect Lure Balls In Pokemon Scarlet And Violet
When you get to Porto Marinada, you’ll run into Kofu, who is looking for his wallet and as such will pay you no attention. Once you battle his apprentice and help him win something at the auctions, you can do your own bidding there. This is where you’ll find the exclusive place of Lure Balls. Basically, to get them, you’ll need to bid a certain amount of money down.
Fortunately, Lure Balls are one of the items almost always available, so even if you don’t win, you can have another chance to get them. Basically, the Auctions will run three times a day and rotate the items available for bidding. The price will start off low and you have to keep increasing your offer in order to outbid the other people. They’re easy to win if you’re willing to invest the right amount of money.
You’ll also get a free Lure Ball when you complete at least 300 entries in your Pokedex, but the main way to get them is definitely through the Auctions. You can get other special items through these as well, which Touch Tap Play will definitely cover how to use in the future!
