Catching a Pokemon in Pokemon Go only to watch it pop out and escape is one of the most frustrating aspects of the game. If you’re looking to prevent your Pokemon from popping out of the Poke balls, read on!
Why Do My Pokemon Keep Popping Out of the Poke Ball?
The main reasons Pokemon will pop out of the Pokeball is due to the difficulty level of the Pokemon to capture, the Pokemon’s CP (Combat Power) and Trainer level.
Pokemon will pop out of Pokeballs for a number of reasons which all must be taken into account when capturing Pokemon.
Check the Color of the Circle Before Throwing the Pokeball
Depending on the color of the inner-circle for the Pokemon the difficulty to capture will vary, depending on the difficulty it may require a couple of tries before you successfully capture the Pokemon.
Experience Affects Pokemon Popping Out of the Pokeball
Another big factor that affects a Pokemon running away is the Pokemon’s CP (Combat Power) and your Trainer level. Each Pokemon has its own applicable CP. The CP will vary based on your trainer level, the higher your trainer level is, the higher the CP of the Pokemon typically is.
If your trainer level is low and you’re attempting to catch a Pokemon with a high CP, it won’t be an easy catch to accomplish. For example, if a Pokemon has 500 CP, and your trainer level is 5, you would have a difficult time catching the Pokemon. But if the CP is below 100, it should be a fairly easy catch for you.
Stop Pokemon from Popping Out of the Poke Ball
If you’re struggling to catch a Pokemon and it keeps popping out, try giving it a Razz Berry. This will make it easier to catch.
Just remember that the Razz Berry only works for one attempt at catching. As soon as it is trapped in a Poke Ball, the Razz Berry will stop working on the Pokemon. If it still pops out of the Poke Ball, you’ll have to give it another Razz Berry to accomplish the catch.
