I can hold my finger on Pokeball and I can spin it before throwing it. Making this with a high speed makes the ball to sparkle. Does this throwing style increase the chance of catching any Pokemon?

P.S. I know the bonuses and I know how to throw a curve ball. You can get all types of bonuses without making it spin or spark. I just want to know if spinning or sparkling increases the chance of catching or not.

  • Actually, the opposite. It decreases your chance. See How do I throw a curve ball? Commented Jul 11, 2016 at 20:45

    I don't think this is a duplicate. I think it is asking if a landed curve ball increases the chances of a catch (ie the Pokemon not escaping) Commented Jul 28, 2016 at 19:14
