What's the difference? Do I _only_ get them when I purchase over 10
regular balls from a Pokemart? Where do they fit in with the other
pokeballs in terms of effectiveness catching Pokemon?

TIA,

I believe they are the equivalent of regular pokeballs. I don't think
there's any real reason for them.

Bit of a letdown. Is the only bonus that the ball is free per ten
bought? That's all there is to Premier pokeballs? I feel a bit stupid
now, as I've been hoarding mine as treasured items.

Cheers again for the info, John :-)

Heh heh, I actually still do that to, sort of. I keep thinking *maybe*
there's more to it than that. But check this out:

Well, since I have Pokemon Box and I'm trying to get the 1,499 pokemon
bonus egg, I've been buying a *lot* of pokeballs. So, if I buy them 10
at a time, it's basically a 10% discount.

Actually, more like 9.1% discount. You're getting 1 ball free out of 11, 1
divided by 11 is .090909... which you can round off neatly enough to 9.1%.
OK, that was my dose of wise ass for the day, goodnight ^^

That's why I said *basically* 10%. I was rounding off to one significant
digit.

But then you should have rounded it off to 9%. So you were 10% off! :p
