I don’t think the pokestops are dropping any less balls now, for me it’s the speed cap combined with more pokemon spawning… have to be more picky now and give up after a dumb 100cp rat pops t of 3 balls…
That’s true! Shame that vanilla Poke balls aren’t that good, are expensive in the shop and you can’t buy ultra or great balls.
Feels like we’re missing out, but actually Niantic gave us more by increasing the number of Pokemon.
I think if they released generation 2, it would be fun with this many Pokemon around. You wouldn’t feel bad saving poke balls for Pokemon you didn’t have. The way it is now, all Pokemon are purely for leveling, just about. Since you can have a buddy to get rare candy, and the rest aren’t needed for anything.
Anyone else get the feeling they’re trying to get us all leveled up to max for some reason? Maybe they’re just trying to reduce the level gap between country and city folk?
You make some valid points, but I guess I’m more cynical.
In my mind by limiting balls via the speed cap & increase useless pokemon spawns, they are trying to increase revenue through pokeball purchases.
If it was about leveling up the players wouldn’t they want us to spin more stops and get XP that way?
But then again, they might have some master plan in place that only rewards high level players – like only lvl 30+ players can catch the legendary pokemon?
