Tips for Using Pokeballs

What is the Max CP of wild Pokemon Poke Balls are effective to?

The higher CP Wild Pokemon have, the harder they are to be captured. However, we could catch a Seaking with CP 800.

Poke Ball may be available for wild Pokemon with CP up to 1,000 approximately. If the CP of wild Pokemon is higher than 1,000, Creat Ball, Ultra Ball, or Razz Berry should be used to capture.

Increasing trainer level

Great Ball and Ultra Ball are reward for leveling up to 12 and 20. You can also get those from PokeStops after these are unlocked.

How to Get Pokeballs

Which is the Best way to get Poke Balls?

Visiting PokeStops is the Best

There is no limit for visiting same PokeStops. PokeStops you have already visited (purple-colored) become available (blue-colored) 5 minutes later. That means you can get Poke Balls by every 5 minutes. Since you can get Poke Ball from PokeStops for free, you do not need to buy it in the shop.
