It seems like Niantic is pretty adamant about making me wanting to stop playing this game.

Their latest 'antic' is making it so I get 1 potion out of maybe 20 Pokestop spins. How am I supposed to continue doing the Gym thing when all my pokemon are beat up?

Healing items are more common from gyms, balls/berries more common from regular stops. It's been this way for about 4 months.

Thanks for the heads up! Thanks what I figured. In my area I get to spin maybe 3-5 gyms a week so that makes sense. Kind of dumb but I guess it's better than when there was a Pokeball drought.

I go through periods of time when I can’t get any of these either. That happens to me with all types of items though, with the exception of revives. It seems like they’re trolling sometimes: i’ll have 0 hp restoring items and 300 Pokéballs (+ great and ultra) then every stop will load me up with more balls. & vice versa.
Either pure stupid coincidence or just niantic having a little fun with us. Can’t really say for sure which one.

Definitely how it feels usually. Sometimes I wonder if they actually have any game designers on their team : p

Honestly - for me its revives......at least after all my kyogre battles.

I have 2 mon that I am leaving dead for now....until I get more - I'm not using my max revive on them.

I have like 50 full potions and 40+ Hypers - honestly - if I do a gym - I make sure to pull the pokemon before it gets knocked out just so I know I can use the potion and not revive.

I do tend to get revives after raids though....though would rather get TM's - I could use like 5 charged TM's
