GS ball just had to be like the anime and never knowing what's really inside. Would rather be like the other balls and show off mints that way. Other than that ball, I wish I can get the Love and Heavy ones.

I started laughing when I saw they have the GS Ball. The story behind the scenes they wanted Celebi to be in the ball, but then decided to make the 4th Movie about it instead so they just left at Kurt's place so fans would forget about it.

Almost 20 years later we haven't forgotten... we haven't forgotten at all...

Even if the others are mint-holders, I feel that they could at least put a little Celebi inside of the GS ball or something. Kinda sucks that it doesn't open like the others.

Go on.

I was talking to someone about the GS ball in the anime the other day and yeah, I had forgotten that there was never any conclusion to what was in that.

So many great things in the anime just disappeared without any explanation. Like that awesome Jigglypuff and its marker of doom. What I wouldn't give to see that little snot make an appearance again.

The Pokémon Go fan in me just wants to buy these bad boys to wear around to raids...

Jigglypuff is apparently slated to return in Pokemon Sun and Moon in the upcoming episode where Misty and Brock return so that's something to keep an eye out for.

The GS Ball functioning only as a display item makes owning it a bit underwhelming, but at least it makes for a greeting ornament. Wink

I was talkinh about Kurt's balls in the games in general. They aren't very useful.

Watch TheJWittz's list of top 10 worst PokéBalls. Many of them are Kurt's.

I shall admit that I'm more curious about the conspicuous hammer than I am about any particular ball.
