Chart for button:
Pokemon and Pokeball both belong to Nintendo and probably other game people - at any rate, I don't own it.
This pattern is for private use only however and belongs to me. So you can make one for you and one for your mates, but you can't sell the poke balls you make from the pattern, or the pattern itself :D
