No, nothings changed.
The secret is to not let things get excessively low.
We have 4 accounts in the family.
At some point in time the kids and my wife’s account have run low on 1 particular item weather it be a particular colored ball, revives, potions or berries.
One of the kids is low on Ultra Balls. All four of us will spin the same stops and Gym and 3 of us that don’t have a low Ultra ball issue keep getting them and the one that is low doesn’t.
The wife’s is low on revives and she gets hardly any from Gyms and smaller drops after raids compared to the other 3. Some of us are deleting the excess above 75 while hers keeps hovering in the 30-40 for the past 3 weeks.
The game AI is smarter than we give it credit for and it gives you plenty of what you already have and hardly anything of what you really need when low on. It’s all geared around making you play more/longer to get what you need.
I rarely get into the cant get enough problem zone as I use a Go Plus and can spin way more Gyms and Stops than they do and I have worked out some good reliable ceiling limits that maintain a constant supply. This however gives me no bag space to stock pile Rares and I’m constantly running at a full bag.
My bag runs around these numbers:
75 Revives, any more than that I delete back to 75
90-120 Ultra Balls
80-120 Great Balls
Whatever space is left for Red Balls. It gets as low as 40-50 using the go plus but I never have space for more than 140.
290-320 Maxi revives, when this starts getting up over 310 I started using a few.
280-320 Maxi Potions
0-30 Super Potions
I delete most Purple and Orange Potions. I will use reviving after a Raid if I get any.
90-130 Pinaps, these are always thrown at Chansey, Small Snorlax, Dratini, Dragonaire, Lavitar, Pupitar and small Tyranitar and Dragonites, any surplus is used for remote feeding.
20-30 Nanabs, any more and they get used for remote feeding
30-40 Razz, any more and they get used for remote feeding
100-120 Golden Razz, any suplus gets used for messing with people trying to take Gyms or know ball breakers if the CP is high.
Rest of the bag is made up of Lures, Lucky Eggs and special Evolve items which I only keep 5-6 of. I don’t use incense so don’t carry them.
It’s become and art balancing the bag and having enough Red Balls to let the Go Plus catch whatever it wants. I have to turn it to stops only sometimes to control the bag limits.
