In Pokemon GO, here's how you can make curveball throws so you may complete research tasks faster and increase your chances of catching Pokemon!

Pokemon GO is all about catching em all, so you'll be throwing a lot of poke balls while you play the game.

There is a more difficult technique called curveball throws in addition to your usual swipe to throw Poke Balls.

As well as an explanation on how to do them, here's all you need to know about curveball throws in Pokemon GO!

What Are Curveball Throws in Pokemon GO?

Curveball throws are a special type of throw that requires you to twist the Poke Ball before you release it.

It can be difficult to master curveball throws, but it is a skill that every player should master. This is because curveballs are common tasks for Research and they also provide a bonus for catching Pokemon.

If you want to throw curveballs, there are two main reasons. These are:

  • Increased Catch Rate
  • To complete a Research Task which requires you to make curveball throws

Curveball throws also earn Pokemon trainers 10 extra XP when catching Pokemon. A smaller amount of power isn't noticeable.

In Pokemon GO, you can also use Berries to increase your catch rate. Both curveball throws and berries stack, so that you can significantly increase your chances of catching Pokemon!

Throwing a successful curveball at a Pokemon will give you a 1.7x catch rate. This means that you are twice as likely to catch the Pokemon.

This increased catch rate is particularly important when it comes to rare and Legendary Pokemon because they have a low catch rate.

Galarian Zapdos, Moltres, and Articuno have such a low catch rate that you'll almost certainly need to throw a curveball if you want to catch them.
