I’ve been entrenching myself at home for the last 3 weeks due to COVID-12, so I haven’t had the chance to hang and play around—I probably span my last Pokéstop 21+ days ago.
I was expecting to exhaust all my stack of resources, sooner or later.
This morning, thanks to:
- the recent addition of Articuno to my team, with whom I entered into an unexpectedly positive winning streak this week, which led to several 4th-win encounters
- the “cheap shot” from Niantic, who made catching Landorus a pain (at least, for me)
- my “good luck” which made me meet 6 of the above genies
I got all out of Pokéballs.
But that’s not the main problem: I threw the last one to a 7th Landorus.
Now I am in an unhappy situation where I can not catch that 7th Landorus (no spheres) and I can not skip the encounter, so I can not claim the 5-match reward, so I can not start a new 5-match round, so I can not play PvP—which was more or less what I was left with.
Given I do not want to buy 100 coins of Pokéballs (I’m not that rich, and who knows what the future will bring), I’ve figured that the only option I have left is to wait for tomorrow morning, and get the weekly bonus and/or hope Niantic will sell out another 1-coin dose of Pokéballs (why couldn’t the give it away for free is unclear to me…).
Is there an alternative I might be missing?
