How to get more Pokéballs in Pokémon GO can help you catch more Pokémon. The point of the game is to catch Pokémon, so you'll always need more Pokéballs to get Candy and complete challenges. Here's how to get Pokéballs in Pokémon GO.

How to Get More Pokéballs in Pokémon GO

The simplest way to get Pokéballs is to spin Pokéstops. You'll get random rewards each time you spin a stop, but the most common drop is a bunch of Pokéballs. You'll also get Pokéballs as rewards for completing Research Tasks.

While you're spinning stops, you may also get gifts that you can send to friends. These gifts can also contain Pokéballs, but you'll have to give them to someone else. Work out a gift exchange deal with a friend to get some Pokéballs between the two of you.

If you can't get to Pokéstops or are impatient, you can buy Pokéball bundles from the shop. Pokéballs are also usually included in the various bundles that go on sale. Pokéballs you buy from the shop can only be the standard red and white Pokéballs.

  • 20 Pokéballs - 100 PokéCoins
  • 100 Pokéballs - 460 PokéCoins
  • 200 Pokéballs - 800 PokéCoins

Niantic periodically releases bundles that cost just a single PokéCoin to help players stock up on items. The contents change, so be sure to grab the bundles as they're available.
