You may have noticed that recently some Pokemon are getting harder and harder to catch. Some players think that this is due to the upcoming GO Fest.
Many think that draining their Pokeballs is Niantic’s way of making players purchase balls for the GO Fest, and if you think about it, is quite logical, and it supports the complaints from players that the game is becoming more pay to win.
This month’s Spotlight Hour Pokemon are the ones that made us fall in love with the Pokemon series in the first place, which of course will make us want to spend every PokeBall catching them. It was Bulbasaur a few days ago, next on the agenda are Charmander and Squirtle, and Natu will be the Pokemon that will close July’s Spotlight Hour events.
This theory first appeared on Reddit, and what caught our eye was a post that the Reddit user u/xclusivestylesz made. They said that they spend an absurd amount of time and 15 balls just to catch a Treeko, a Pokemon that was on the “easily caught Pokemon” list. The new Research task is also a draining source, a source that gives you 80 PokeBalls after completion, even though you spend more than 100 Pokeballs.
It is overwhelming how many events we have had these past two months and we wish Niantic would listen to us and slow down.
Do you support this? Did you spend an insane amount of PokeBalls these past few days? Comment down below.
