It's happened to me once, back in Sapphire. I didn't even notice it happened til long, long after I did it. I went to catch Kyogre and noticed it was gone, so after raging like a Motherf***er I managed to catch it with ultra balls. Later I went through my pc to see if I accidently used it...

I used it on a Trapinch >.>

I did in gen 1. I don't remember on what, because I was 10, but it was a dumb waste.

Since then I don't think I've ever used a masterball. I always tell myself I'm saving it for a special legendary and then end up never using it -_-.

I've never actually used one, come to think of it. And I have confidence I'll probably never NEED to use one. Might use this one I have in W2 on a Patrat or something...

I've never used one in-game on anything besides roaming legendaries. Except for Red and Blue, where I would always use it on Mewtwo since there was no point in saving it.

Though I did panic and throw a Master Ball at the first (and only) normal shiny I've found in the wild. I really wish I would have been able to catch it in something else though.

I've only used it once on Groudon in Ruby. I thought I had to use it. Note, this was me when I thought it was okay to have HMs spread throughout the entire team and have entire movesets of only one type.

I probably would have done the same thing :P

At least you used it on something awesome, if not legendary.

Indeed, although this was before I knew what it evolved too :P

If you're too afraid of knocking it out, just throw a ball at full health. I can understand that you'd do that with a Pokémon that can flee though, like Abra. However, if you see a shiny Abra during the night and have a Dusk Ball in your possession, don't waste your Master Ball because throwing a Dusk Ball right from the start will guarantee its capture.

It was a random level 50-something Poliwrath. I remember having a low-level Stantler with me, but the rest of my party was probably all level 100s. And it was daytime. So I may not have even been able to weaken it.

Though I did have the patience to continuously chuck Great Balls at a shiny Absol I found with PokeRadar, because I didn't think to bring a low-level with me, and my Quick Ball missed on the first turn... xD I caught it though, so all's good. (:
