After getting level 20 I was rewarded with 20 ultra balls (among other stuff). I assume this would have been like with the great balls, which unlocked them and allowed you to collect them from pokestops.

However after getting about 30-50 pokestops after hitting level 20, I have yet to get a single ultra ball, am I just incredibly unlucky?

Is it possible to get ultra balls from pokestops or is it going to be a pay to get item like lures and lucky eggs?

  • I feel your pain - I'm still yet to receive one and am almost on level 21! – berry120 Jul 29 '16 at 15:18

Yes, you can.

Source: I have. They aren't as common as regular balls. Don't forget to curve those when you run out of ultras.

    I finally got one, seems like it's a crazy low chance. What do you mean by curving regular balls? – Aequitas Jul 18 '16 at 15:48
  • Swirl your finger when "holding" a pokeball and then throw it to get the curveball bonus! – Sarah Archer Jul 20 '16 at 7:17

    I know how to get a curveball bonus. But why did you say to curve normal balls when run out of ultras? – Aequitas Jul 20 '16 at 7:18

Apparently you can. I just hit 20 after egg evolve strategy and I spin pokestop for the FIRST time and I get an ultra ball. I was very surprised and wanted to know how rare these actually are. So I know you CAN get them from pokestops but no idea about the chance. I wish I was this lucky with the egg hatches...

  • After getting quite a lot more pokestops (and ultra balls) I'd say the chance is probably around 1-5% – Aequitas Jul 20 '16 at 14:52

Yup, they definently do! They are a bit rare to drop though. Here are some screenshots from a lucky day:

Yes, you can get ultra balls from Pokestops.

In this trailer, a woman spins the pokestop and gets ultra pokeballs from it.

    A trailer does not necessarily mean it is in the game. Content has been shown in trailers, but cut from the game due to differant reasons, before. – user106385 Jul 17 '16 at 10:06
  • @Timelord64 I didn't see any content which is not in the game. Trading and battling will other players will be added in the future updates. – DeMize Jul 17 '16 at 10:09

    In other words, you did see content that is not yet in the game. It also does show pre-release content that has been changed; Psyduck evolves at 50 candys, not 21 – user106385 Jul 17 '16 at 10:15
