When looking up Poké Balls for reference I came across various information about them and wanted to incorporate that into this picture. Labeling what things are on the Poké Ball and general information like the diameter and weight of it.
Wow, this is really in-depth! Never thought they'd be about the size of a baseball, definitely makes Pokemon seem a little more real for me. You should see if you can put this on Bulbapedia, there was some one I overheard talking about making some out of fiberglass but, was unsure of the dimensions.
There are many theories. Mine is very logically based, and I think it's worth sharing if you're open to ideas. Once a Pokemon is captured within the ball, it is stored in the form of light energy, hence the reflecting glass (to contain the light) and copper pins (to keep a constant electric current running through the interior). This would explain why there is a brilliant flash of light each time a Pokemon is released from it's ball, and that a ball with a captured Pokemon inside of it weighs no more than an empty one.
Well, yeah there are flaws in it but I've never tried to form a scientific theorem to prove it. I like to imagine that the copper diodes (SOMEHOW) form a protective charged film between the Pokemon and the interior surface of the ball. Who knows, they also have machines that instantly restore them to perfect health, so they clearly have technology beyond our current understanding.
well, I suggest that interrior of pokeball is designed to hold a hologram copy of pokemon. The hologram allows to restore pockemon's molecular structure when the pockeball is opened. The downside of this theory - every time a pockemon is sucked in a pockeball it's body is actually being killed and disassembled in atoms.
You get a pokemon weak and then throw it the pokeball. But if your question is how do they FIT ON those its unknow. Wich is a very unoriginal question if you ask me but since you didnt ask that is alright. RIGHT?
