    Does anyone want to help me work out the probability of getting each type of special item? If so, just list the number of each type of special item you get (starting from the guaranteed 7th day spin update) as a reply to this thread and I’ll update the probability table.

    Special Item Amount Probability
    Metal Coat 4 23.5%
    Up-Grade 5 29.4%
    Sun Stone 3 27.6%
    Dragon Scale 2 11.8%
    King’s Rock 3 17.6%

    I will also keep track of the number of each type of special item each of us gets, which will help us see if special items are biome / geographically effected.

    Thanks @carol

    I’ve updated the table. Still a small amount of data, but it’s starting to look like the lowest probability is the Dragon Scale and Kings Rock.

    Hi Lewis
    This morning on my pokeball run I got another King Stone and a Dragon Scale seems random because tomorrow is my 7th day. I do however have to walk round in circles just to collect enough balls being a small town sometimes 5 to 15km a day.

    Thanks @carol.

    I’ve updated the probability based on everyone’s input. It’s still a small data set, but it’s looking like the chance of getting any particular special item is pretty even so far.

    Every single one has been the Metal Coat. Those along with random ones from poke stops means I have 5. I need a kings rock and a sun stone but I keep getting these (useless to me) metal coats!

    If you give me a full list of the special items you got, I will add your data to the list 😃

    Added in the latest data. Anecdotally it does seem as though Metal Coat and Up-Grade are the more common special items.

    I got a Dragon Scale and an Up-Grade, which I’ll add to the data later 😃
