I often select a wild Pokémon to catch it, only to get the message "No Poké Balls" after waiting a few seconds. It is time wasted.

QUESTION: On the main screen, how can I immediately see whether I have Poké Balls?

  • It's not time wasted if you didn't have Pokeballs to start with. In fact it's time saved, since you're not wasting time throwing Pokeballs at a Pokemon. – Kaizerwolf Jul 22 '16 at 12:52
  • @Kaizerwolf: Selecting a Pokémon with my fat fingers can take up to 20 seconds, and then the screen load takes a few seconds, then there is the Pokémon's animation, before I can finally the my Poké Balls count. This time would be better spent moving on. – Nicolas Raoul Jul 22 '16 at 14:40
  • And what exactly are you moving on to? The game does not pause when you select a Pokemon on your map. It keeps going in the background. I think you're overestimating how much time you're "wasting". – Kaizerwolf Jul 22 '16 at 17:15
  • Move on = Keep walking and getting items from the numerous Pokéstops around, while paying attention to the real environment. That already takes more time than I can devote, as I walk fast and the area is very active. – Nicolas Raoul Jul 23 '16 at 4:00

You can't. You either have to go into your inventory and check, and keep count. Or when catching a Pokemon you can see a small number at the bottom, that's your current count.
