As soon as the game begins, we are introduced to Professor Laventon, a researcher at the Galaxy Expedition Team set in the Hisui region, a bygone version of Sinnoh.
One of your first assignments is for you to catch a Pokemon with an old version of a pokeball, and here comes the interesting part, since it clarifies how they work.
Laventon reveals that the creatures have the ability to shrink to minuscule size, and the function of the famous pokeballs is to force this ability to trap them inside.
Apparently, the technology of these devices evolved over the years, and now they transform Pokémon into energy, or so it seems.
That the creatures in the Nintendo game can shrink is not entirely new, and if you think about it, this ability would explain why they can escape so easily when you find them.
