I have a great spot in my city where I can sit with 4 overlapping Pokestops. It's great to pop a few Lure's and every 5 minutes collect from 4 stops.

But I've noticed something.. I seem to only get 3 items from each Pokestop every time. Whereas if I was moving around from Pokestop to Pokestop - I would have more variety, at least 4-6 items dropping every once in a while.

Does the length of time you spend at one or more Pokestops decrease the yield of items?

EDIT: I'm at 12 times in a row that I've only got 3 items. Really bad luck?

  • are you sure is always 3 items? is just random, i don think time affect the loot – lois6b Jul 20 '16 at 8:01

  • @lois6b 12 times in a row. Maybe because I don't have any lures going or anything? – Insane Jul 20 '16 at 8:05

    right ^^' my fault – lois6b Jul 20 '16 at 8:07

I don't think it matters. There are two overlapping pokéstops at my office and I spin them every 5 minutes, and I still get a completely random number of items. Usually it's three, but I've gotten up to 7 before.
