If you’re a nationwide player who wants to catch a few Pokemon but are short on Pokeballs, here’s a simple trick that allows Pokemon Go players to top up for free.
Whether it’s the day before Go Fest or in the middle of Pokemon Go Community Day, nationwide players may be looking for a quick way to collect Pokeballs so they don’t go home empty-handed.
Many players spend the day (or days) before an event preparing for what’s to come. Clearing Pokemon storage, training mons for Raid Battles, and stocking up on needed supplies. However, this preparation is a lot easier for players in densely populated areas than for rural players.
And like Reddit user ryan2489, rural trainers often go to a community day with very few Pokeballs at their disposal. However, thanks to helpful comments, players can get a wealth of Pokeballs for free with some quick tricks.
Pokemon Go Incense Trick Gives Trainers Free Pokeballs
The first trick was brought to Ryan’s attention by a user called ThePostManEST. They said, “pop that daily incense and get 30 free balls in your hand.”
Players who have less than 30 Pokeballs (including Great and Ultra Balls) can use their Daily Adventure Incense to instantly earn 30 Pokeballs – for free.
Another user named Specialist_Ad_3642 suggested adding friends and opening gifts. And for those who don’t have local friends to play with, multiple users suggested visiting r/pokemongofriends subreddit.
Finally, Egg_Custard reminded players of the Daily Free Box. While it’s scraps compared to other resources, it does at least give players a few extra balls to use during a Community Day event.
While tricks and tips aren’t real solutions to Niantic’s lack of resources for nationwide players, any boost in Pokeball numbers is a major asset for gamers far away from reliable Poke Stops.
