How To Get Poke Balls In Pokemon Go
In Pokemon Go you will need a ton of Poke Balls in order to catch-all of the Pokemon you come across on the map. Until you get good at tossing the Poke Balls out you will likely use multiple on one Pokemon. Check out this guide to figure out How To Get Poke Balls In Pokemon Go!

How To Get Poke Balls In Pokemon Go

[line style=’solid’ top=’10’ bottom=’10’ width=’100%’ height=’1′ color=’blue’] First off; you can buy Poke Balls from the store if you really just want to blow cash but there isn’t a need. You can stack them pretty easily if you just have a patience to wait for a little bit.

One way to get Poke Balls is to level up. As you level up you will be gifted with Poke Balls from time to time. Normally this is a pretty large chunk(10+) so leveling up is a great way to get some extra Poke Balls.

The best way to get extra Poke Balls is to visit PokeStops. These are typically businesses, parks or churches that will have a blue symbol over them. When you get close enough, you can click the blue symbol and the name will pop up along with a picture. When the picture is on the screen, spin the picture and it will toss items out at you. You always get Poke Balls from these at the very least. You can also get Eggs, Potions and other useful items every now and then. If you visit the same one frequently you will get reduced items but you still normally get 3 Poke Balls at least. I am not 100% sure on what the re spawn timer is for the PokeStop but it is very low, something like five minutes. Just find yourself a route and take it for an hour or so and you will have Poke Balls to burn. If you are lucky you will work at a place that is a center and you can just farm them at work.

Johnny Hurricane's Gamer Biography


  1. Well I just turned level 5 and guess what mr.writer person? What no guess? Oh yeah, I’m far too impatient to wait for a reply so I’ll just tell you, I didn’t get no pokeballs! I was like a male dog leaving the vet! 3: but yeah idk if it’s after level 4 you get none or if they start spacing them out between levels. The rest of your information was very helpful tho thank you!

    1. I hit level 6 and did get 15 pokeballs so I guess they are gonna stagger it or something. But I’m gona be irritated to all hell if they don’t come out with sobe repel. I have a dang rattata constantly setting my phone off at my house. Essentially my abode is now infested with annoying rats.

  2. Getting pokeballs is worse in rural areas. I have 1 pokestop quite a distance away and people in the city have hundreds and some can even collect them from the comfort of their home

    1. I only have 4 pokestops near me, (all parks/reserves) and 1 gym a short walk down the road from me. I live in the suburbs of Melbourne which is not a particularly rural area, but there is still a huge difference between the amount of pokestops in my area and in the city.

      1. Sadly I have to drive to get near any Pokestops but thankfully when I get there they are all right on top of each other and I can walk around for an hour or so re collecting them. It’d be nice if there was an easier way to get these but there isn’t at the moment. It almost needs like a daily log in reward or something.

    2. So true. :”/ I live in a rural area & I have no Pokestops until I drive out. All of my Gyms are churches. I can catch some in my house, but not more than about 10 per day (usually much less). Walking in my neighborhood kind of helps, but it looks like I’m trying to lurk in people’s yards lol. I don’t want the cops called on me. xD

  3. There is only one pokestop in my area and no way of getting near it lol. It shouldn’t even be a pokestop especially since there is park areas in my suburb. I think someone messed up.

    1. check your journal.
      i thought the same at first
      its just a glitch the items don’t show up ,but they get into ur inventory

  4. I’ve got 1 pokestop I can walk to but several others in my area I drive to. My issue is I cannot tell how many balls I have. Last night I used my incense and when a pokemon finally showed up I had no balls to get it. Is there a way to see the # of balls you have?

    1. Yes! Tap the Pokeball mid-screen & it will show you your Pokedex, Pokemon, & Items. Tap Items, & that’s how you find how many you have currently.

  5. I have caught a few Pokémon but once they’re in the ball, I can’t pick them up. What am I ding wrong?

    1. It can be buggy, and also when my internet is a bit bad, it tends to not load some things, or im not able to catch them.. restarting it will los ur pokemon, and a ball but it does restart the whole game of course..

  6. I have 2 in a field 3 minutes away, I can stay on my wifi and I normally go out every 30 maybe 20 minutes to catch them. Every 2 to 5 hours a pokemon will spawn at my stops, and I can get them and normally I can catch at least one pokemon of some type before I get home. For all of you out there who live outside of the city, I would recommend catching all the weak pokemon to level up and get some and every time you go for a drive or something , or to school, collect them there. I get about 12 every 20 minutes not including both stops, about 36 in an hour per stop, and I go out almost every 2 hours for about 10 hours a day so I get around 150 on a good day for 1 stop, sometimes both. About 100 on a regular basis. So, find a good place for farming it really makes a difference.

  7. Luckily, i live outside the historic downtown district of my city. So its a short drive to the civic center, and the park outside there, has a ton of monuments. So its literally about 20 pokestops, stacked around each other. I can sit out in the fields with the rest of the crowd and just catch pokemon and farm balls all day. My only headache, is the periodic crashes.
