Don't you dare say you'd rather lose!
It's all subjective, so there's not really a "best" option. Take Articuno for example. Some think that Great is the best ball for Articuno, others think that Quick or Dive are better options and there's also people who prefer everything to be in a Pokeball (if possible).been wondering is there like a community driven list of "best ball for each pokemon" not like i can just cram everyone in a dream ball :/ that would be wierd
Just put the Pokemon in a Ball that you yourself think fits it best. You could check Serebii's list of Ball Legality, to see a list of legal Pokeball combinations for each Pokemon. And it never hurts to ask here, if you're unsure.
