I bumped into @heugumper today while on my walk who told me he’d heard that you can get Special Items (Steal Coat, Sun Stone, Kings Rock, Dragon Scale and Up-Grade) from Poke Stops on your seventh day weekly weekly bonus. This is just a theory at the moment, hopefully we will find out tomorrow from Paul and Ricardo after their 7th day bonus.
There is also a theory that you can get Special Items from Poke Stops on non bonus spins, but the chance is super low.
From what I can tell the 7th day spin isn’t guaranteed to get you an evolution item – it’s just a much greater change of getting one.
When I got my 7th day spin I received a Metal Coat and luckily got a 2nd Metal Cost 2 spins later.
Similar thing happened with my wife (got a single Kings Rock).
Unfortunately for my friend she hit her 7th day streak over the weekend and got none – needless to say, she was rather frustrated!
So far I’ve acquired 3 special items, none of which from 7th day spins… Though I can’t say for sure that my first 7th day spin didn’t give my first special item because I don’t know where my first one came from.
So far it seems that I’ve done 2 7th day spins with no luck and you’ve done 2 and got one item. Small amount of data showing a 25% chance to get a special item on a 7th day spin.
Keep us informed, it’d be nice to be the ones to work out the probability of getting a special item, before the team at Silph Road sus it out 😜
I’ve still not got anything from 7th day spins as yet. I’ve managed to get only 2 special items so far. My current line of thinking is that as people are reporting not getting any special items despite spining loads of Poke Stops, and as I don’t live in town and therefore don’t hit many Poke Stops but already have 2 special items… I’m wondering if you get a special item every x spins with a maximum of 1 per week, or something like that.
