I have used all my Pokéballs to catch Pokémon. Now I'm trying to get more Pokéballs, but don't know how. I can't see any gym or Pokéstop on my map either. Is there any way to earn Pokéballs or will I get them on a daily basis?

    Are you living in a small village? Having no Pokéstop or gyms around is pretty rare.

    Ok, as it seems you are in a country where the game isn't released, yet. You will probably have to wait for an updated map of your region. They might still work on filling the map with Pokéstops and gyms.

    Perhaps because this is an issue that you can't encounter unless you're playing in an unsupported region? Seems like a pretty good reason to close to me.

    @BlueRaja-DannyPflughoeft The title is a fine question. But given the detail it is effectively "given that the game isn't available for me, how do I play the game?" Which I can see as a good rationale for closing, if, for example, the asker was refusing to accept any answer that didn't solve the latter problem. Given that they didn't refuse to do that, question seems fine.

Next to PokéStops you will only receive Poké Balls, when you Level Up or when you use the Shop.

The Poké Ball's successors (Great Ball, Ultra Ball, ...) are currently not purchasable in the Shop yet. They can only be received with the two former cases.

    I am in India..here pokemon go is not yet released. M using apk. Jul 15, 2016 at 11:01

As far as I know, most or all PokeStops and Gyms in Pokemon Go are taken from the game Ingress, which had few set Portals from Niantic and most Portals requested by Players. Which leaves a possibility that no one ever set or requested Portals at your location.

If you and your friends are certain, that there are no connectivity or GPS issues I second dly's comment:

Until recently you were able to request Pokéstops, but apparently they took it down again. If you have no stops in your area at all it might still be a good idea to submit a ticket at support.pokemongo.nianticlabs.com/hc/en-us – dly 3 mins ago

    Sorry, I deleted the comment again as the OP said the game isn't released in their country, yet. Requesting a Pokéstop in an unfinished region is probably not a good idea.

    The points of interest are called portals in Ingress, not events. Events in Ingress are big meetups with lots of players. Portals were submitted (as in crowdsourced), not requested (as in "please put one in my street"), but that has been turned off for a while now because they could not handle their backlog.

  • @dly Why not? There's plenty of areas where the game isn't officially released yet which are mapped out already.

  • I wouldn't give support for a region that's not yet released. And I believe Niantic has enough to do with the regions that are already released.

You can either retrieve them from PokeStops, get them while leveling up, or purchase them from the Pokemon Go store.

  • sorry but GO is not official launch in my country so i can't buy them. Jul 15, 2016 at 7:41

    you can buy them, it's not an issue at all if the game is not yet released in your country. At least, this is the case on my android phone using a credit card. Jul 15, 2016 at 11:13
  • @StephanBijzitter well sorry but i will say you should not use your credit card in apk as they are not official and if you will lost your money then there will be no return so please be careful while using your card. Jul 16, 2016 at 17:36
