What is a Love Ball?
Pokémon Sword & Shield Love Ball is a Poké Ball that is obtained from Kurt. This particular Poké Ball works best when catching a Pokémon that is of the opposite gender of your Pokémon. Love Balls have a capture rate that depends on your Pokémon and the Opponents Pokémon.
Suppose, the Pokémons are of the same species and different genders, the capture rate will be 8. However, if the Pokémons are of the same gender or even genderless then the rate will be 1. It was found that this effect was glitched in Gold, Silver & Crystal.
