I'm not able to catch any Pokemon, I feed them but my pokéball icon is shaded!

What does this mean, and why won't it let me catch any pokémon?

    Downvoted for lack of research effort. How did you manage to run out of Poké Balls without realising? – F1Krazy Mar 29 at 12:48

That blanked out circle means you have no Pokeballs left, and therefore are unable to attempt to catch a pokemon. To get more balls you will have to either purchase some from the store, or find some by spinning pokestops.

Feeding a pokemon berries will not change this, instead they make it easier/more profitable to catch pokemon when you have pokeballs to use.
